Britney Spears is “selfish”, “egotistical” and convinced she’s “God”

Britney SpearsBritney Spears' mental state is so bad she thinks she is GOD, her closest friend revealed today.

The star's self-styled manager Sam Lutfi, 33, says Britney's manic episodes leave her "selfish" and "egotistical" and like "another person". And he said she becomes "very grandiose" - and convinced she is "God".

Lutfi - by Britney's side until her parents launched their astonishing court battle against him this week - gave the revealing insight into the star's mental state to prove her behaviour is signs of severe illness.

He insists that her British accent is nothing to worry about, just something she turns on because she feels "comfortable" using it.

But the biggest sign that a severe turn is coming is her appearance. "You know when the pink wig comes on, it's getting bad," Lutfi told a U.S. magazine.
The star's right-hand man says that Spears, 26, was hospitalized because her doctor feared she was heading for trouble because she was refusing to take medication - and ignoring her pleas not to drive "very recklessly".

And he says the way he managed to get her to go quietly was by showing her a picture of her sons Jayden and Sean Preston, telling her: "This is who it's all for."

He says throughout the wait for the ambulance to come, Britney behaved lost and "like a little kid in trouble".
"When I told her, she wrote me a note and put a big heart on it and it said, 'I love you, Sam. Are there people coming? Circle yes or no'," Lutfi recalled. "Oh, my God, it was funny, just the cutest little thing.

"I circled yes and gave it back to her, and she looked at me and she's like, 'Oh, Lord, here we go again'"

Lutfi's interview - given a day before Britney's parents gained a restraining order against him - gives an explosive insight into just how troubled the superstar has become. He admis at one stage blocking in Spears' mum's car, which led to Lynne Spears calling the police.

But he insisted: "I told her, 'You're going to suffer a manic episode with your daughter so you know what I go through'."

He added: "In the depressive episodes, it's all crying, but in the manic episode, there's very little crying or sympathy or compassion.

"She becomes another person.

"She becomes somebody that just doesn't care about anybody or anything.

"It's very hard to sympathize.

"What happened earlier last year when her aunt died, she never sympathized.

"It's very selfish.

"It looks like a very egotistical person.

"They become very grandiose and think they are God.

"The British accent is part of the mania. It isn't part of her severe manic episodes.

"She'll stick to the British accent because she becomes comfortable with it

"But you know when the pink wig comes on, it's getting bad.

Sam says her mood disorder came on "about five years ago" - but is intriguingly vague about what sparked it.

But he hints that Spears had a devastating trauma in her life that she has kept secret from the world - even her family. "I'm not at liberty to say," what was happening, Sam said. "And the family doesn't know either.

"I mean, Britney knows and maybe one other person. And I got her to tell the psychiatrist."

Asked why she had to be hospitalized when she was, Sam said she had not slept for four days straight and was worrying her shrink. "She didn't sleep since Saturday" he said. "She'd been very manic and driving very recklessly and the doctor was concerned.

"The doctor asked Britney to take her meds; she refused.

"She asked Britney to quit driving; she refused.

"The doctor said, 'Ok, I have to have her committed'."

Sam says he immediately called Spears' mum to warn her, but it took "hours to get her mum to arrive" - and she then tried to get in the way of Britney getting the treatment she so clearly needed. "Finally she cruises all the way down," he says.

"She comes barging in saying, 'Baby, baby, get into my car right now! Sam's trying to commit you!'

"I go, 'Lynne, what the f**k are you saying?'"

Eventually he claims Britney stopped the fight by screaming: "Mama, shut the f**k up!'"

Asked how Britney was, he says: "She was very quiet. She asked everyone not to say anything.

"She was looking at me like a little kid in trouble.

"She said, 'So are people really coming?'

"I said, 'Yeah, Britney, those helicopters and stuff outside, they're coming'

"She said, 'Do I have to go?' And I said, 'I would if I were you. So don't put up a fight.'

"'You think something's wrong?'

"'Britney, I do think there's something wrong, and I'm your friend and love you'.

"And she said, 'I love you too'."

But Sam insists Britney's biggest concern is her sons. The star's failure to show in court for custody hearings led people to believe she did not care for them - but Sam says it is what still drives her. "The kids are both depressant triggers. She's highly passionate towards them. Very protective and very supportive," he insisted.

"She just sat on the floor and I gave her a picture of the babies, and I said, 'This is who it's all for'.

"And she was like, 'Ok'. She just knew they were coming. She knew that she'd have to go with them."
