As if her child custody battle with ex-husband Kevin Federline wasn't tough enough, Britney Spears got burned by her ex-bodyguard in September 2007 when he appeared as a secret witness. Tony Barretto was prepared to testify about "issues of nudity by Ms. Spears, drug use and safety issues involving the children" that he witnessed as her bodyguard before she fired him in May 2007, according to his attorney, Gloria Allred. But instead of testifying, Barretto's written allegations were entered into court as evidence.
Spears ended up surrendering custody of Sean Preston and Jayden James to Federline in July 2008. She retains visitation rights with her two sons.
