Is Britney's Bodyguard Really Helping Things?

Is Britney's Bodyguard Really Helping Things?

In the latest Britney saga, her bodyguard, Tony Barretto sold his tell-all story to News of the World on what it was like to work for the pop star. He dished on drug details including an overdose, her horrible parenting habits, poor hygiene, and mental issues. There is a video and pages of his quotes which he claims he is exposing for her own good and the sake of her two boys. What do you think? Is his story going to help Britney get help?

Its pretty simple, if he truly cared and was concerned, why did he wait months to come forward. Just another person looking for fame and revenge. Am I saying she's totally innocent? No, but I don't think he's 100% honest here.

No one has had any idea what her life looked like from the people hired by her. His story gives a glimpse on how she truly behaves. How scary is it that he had to make sure she didn't take her children swimming at one point, for fear that she would kill them. She def needs some help.

I was wondering why she isn't smart enough to make these fools sign confidentiality agreements? Is she so out of control that no one will work for her? I think it's shitty someone can attempt to blackmail you and then get away with this crap. Like any of this is helping her, the full breakdown is due any minute now

lilflowa/#31: "britney needs help an all but he obviously did this for the money no doubt. case closed. If it wasnt about the money he could just wait to testify in court..." He did testify in court. It was at least partially due to his testimony that the judge ordered Brit to twice weekly drug tests. Of course he wants money. If he didn't, he wouldn't have gone to News of the World. However, the fact that he waited until after he testified in court to do so lends credibility to his story. I don't think he wants to perjure himself, so I believe him.

If he were concerned about the boys.. or britney.. then he woulda done something when it was happening.. not later.. in an interview. stupid... it's for the money.

CantHelpWatching is right! He's gonna have trouble working as a bodyguard if he won't keep their secrets. I feel so bad for Britney. I was watching the footage of her going into the store (the pacifier thing) and there was this horrid swarm of Paps with the flash bulbs going off all over the place & she says "I don't know if I can do this" and it just made me sick. No-one's life can handle that much scrutiny. I am convinced that if we had to deal with all that stalking, it would drive each of us crazy, and we'd do much worse than shave our heads and go out and party a lot sans the undies. She needs to hire a good nanny or two and move overseas, just like Johnny Depp. Hollywood is serving her up on a plate with a steaming side of judgement.

He honestly didn't do it to help her. He just wanted the money. I do think that he might end up helping her since he ended up exposing her to the world. That would give me a wake up call! I hope so since she's on the brink of another meltdown. Poor baby, I hope she gets her act together. As Chris Crocker would say, "LEAVE BRITTNEY ALONE!" ;-)

Probably not ... but then again, his job is bodyguard, not therapist or even to GET her help.

This guy is what I would call a fat loser. Now that I think about it, I would probably call Britney a fat loser too. Accent on "fat". No, just kidding. I love Brit. And this guy is just one of the many losers trying to get their share of fame/money on her expenses. She might (and with "might" I mean "definitely") have been acting like a total wreck in the past year, but non of what she could have done justify what *he* is doing. Blah..

I don't know. Obviously, he's making money exposing all he knows about Britney, but if it gives her a wake up call and helps her get it together then it's good that he spoke up.

I couldn't even muster up the energy to vote. Britney's life is draining.

Even if he's telling the truth what does it matter at this point? The Public will only assume he leaked his story to the press to gain publicity. In this day in age how does anyone help a celebrity who's on a downward spiral. It's very clear that in a State like California run and governed by Celebrity and status alike even the system is jaded.

I think someone needs to intervene maybe this isn't how I 'd do it. But clearly theres been many people who have probably tried to talk to her and she won't listen. I hope this doesn't help K-fed get the kids....

He didn't need to blab his story. I completely think that she needs serious rehab, but how does it help Brit to tell everything to the world. Tell it to the judge and let the judge do what she needs to do. I have some sympathy for Brit bc she seems to have some emotional problems and looks like she could use some help.

it's a weird win-win. he gets the money and 3 minutes of fame.. and hopefully this will help open her eyes.

If he cared and was ssoooo concerned, he would've called the police when the crap was happening. Yeah, Brit is screwed up, but in my opinion, atleast 90% of the people around her are doing drugs and excessive drinking right along with her. I just want her to get some serious help. then she needs to disappear out of the hollywood spotlight.

Yes, she needs help, and he's just blocking the way.

Im not sure. I think he was doing it to help her with the whole situation. Everyone feels bad for her...everyone pittys her. She needs help. But in my opinion she'll never change.
