Justin Timberlake Pleads with Britney Spears, “Stop Drinking”

Justin Timberlake used his time on stage at the recent Brit Awards to plead with former girlfriend, Britney Spears, to sober up. While Timberlake refrained from publicly directing his comments to the 26-year-old “Toxic” singer, his message was clearly understood to be intended for Spears.

Timberlake beseeched his former Mouseketeer mate, “Stop drinking! You know who you are. I'm speaking to you. You are going to get sloppy.”

The Grammy Award winning Timberlake hasn’t been the only one to voice concern over the partying ways of Britney. Spears’ former assistant, Felicia Culotta, has apparently been preparing for the worst. In a letter published on a blogging site, Culotta wrote,

“I want you to know we (as in her family and nearest and dearest - all of whom are not on the payroll anymore) are doing everything in our power to get help for Britney and all in our power not to pad the bottom or move the bottom, so when she does indeed hit rock bottom, she'll stand up and walk away from this whole fiasco a new, confident, changed, career driven Britney like we all knew and loved.”

The letter continued,

"To see what is transpiring now, makes me feel a failure, defeated. I loved and believed in what I was a part of for the past 10 years and was so incredibly proud of Britney and all she'd become.”
