Reports of Britney's recent bizarre behavior now include a suicide note written before her January 3 meltdown and stepping out of a changing room in a upscale clothing store stark.
Whatever is happening in Britney's life, the presence of boyfriend Adnan Ghalib in it is of no help.
Alli Sims, Britney's cousin and good friend who has stood besides her through a lot of her travails, sounded a warning note on Adnan while speaking with Us weekly.
"I don't know him. I only know who he is through him following us for the last eight months. I do not think Adnan is a good person; I think he only has bad intentions. He has always given me a weird feeling and creeped me out. I wish he would just go away."
Not all that is being reported about Britney is true. For example, the In-Touch story that Britney left a suicide note has been trashed by Britney's manager Sam Lutfi, reports x17online.
The original In Touch story claimed that Britney's "very sad" note was "filled with reasons why she shouldn't live, including lines from poems about death" was found by Sam.
As to Britney walking around naked this is what has been reported.
While shopping at the Westfield Fashion Square in Sherman Oaks, California , Britney came out of the changing room stark naked, a sales clerk at the store told Life & Style magazine.
As she walked into the upscale clothing store, Britney grabbed a couple of dresses and went into the changing room with Adnan. A little later she stepped out completely naked to the utter astonishment of every one present.
When the sales clerk tried to cover her up she went ballistic 'Get away from me! Don't you f------ come near me!'
"Then she disappeared in the dressing room with Adnan for 45 minutes. They were making weird noises. It was disgusting," the sales clerk adds.
After the two emerged Britney was mumbling something unintelligible.
"I couldn't understand a word she was saying. She was slurring and spitting, and talking with a British accent," says the employee. "Her face was covered with cold sores and acne, and her scalp was patchy. I wanted to help her, but she was so mean that I left her alone.
"Then she muttered, 'F--- you!' and left the store."

The shocking details from the night Britney Spears suffered her dramatic meltdown have been revealed, including claims that she refused to dress for police, yelling she was "too hot" for clothes.
Police sources have revealed the appalling instances that took place when they arrived at Spears' Los Angeles home in a bid to prompt the singer to hand over her child after her visitation term had ended.
According to a report in TMZ.com, Britney spent three hours locked in the master bathroom of her home with her youngest son Jayden James.
When the pop star did relinquish the kid, she was wearing nothing but panties and refused to wear nothing on but a see-through dress, according to an insider.
And when cops tried to cover her with a sweater, she screamed, "Don't cover me up. I'm f**king hot."
The source reveals that Spears was mostly rambling, screaming, "What the f**k are you doing in my house?" and "I don't need your f**king help" at the authorities.
Her moods "swung wildly from laughter to rage to sobs," the source added.
Britney's pal Sam Lutfi arrived amid the chaos and and is said to have told officers he knew the singer's latest meltdown "was coming for a long time".
He reportedly told police Britney had been "extremely unstable" and recently bought a house in Malibu on a whim, started moving furniture in and then changed her mind.

Britney's paparazzo lover Adnan Ghalib's wife Nichole Grimes says Adnan is "mad and sex-mad".
Grimes "fell-head-over-heels" for Birmingham photographer Adnan Ghalib - who is now dating the 'Gimme More' singer - only to discover he was cheating on her with her best-friend.
Nichole, 35, said: "Britney should watch out - he's wild. To say he was a ladies' man was an understatement. He couldn't get enough. He's mad and sex-mad.
"When we met I thought he was this lovely young Asian boy from a strict family. I was head-over-heels in love. Then I discovered he'd been secretly hitting on my friend behind my back.
"Some people may wonder what this guy from a strict Muslim family is doing with a party animal like Britney. But I reckon he's wilder than her."
Nichole - who met Adnan, 35, when they both attended Birmingham's Sheldon Heath Community School - also believes it has been Adnan's "life-long dream" to date a superstar.
Nichole added to the Daily Star newspaper: "He was a real charmer. He knew what he wanted and he knew how to get it.
"He's such an attention-seeker that to date one of the world's most famous women must have been his life-long dream."
Meanwhile, Britney, 26, and Adnan boarded a private jet to New York together yesterday afternoon (09 Jan 2008).
They left Van Nuys Airport at 4pm on a flight bound for New Jersey's Teterboro Airport.
The singer has lost her visitation rights to sons Sean Preston, two, and 15-month-old Jayden James, after she was hospitalized for a psychiatric evaluation last week following a police stand-off at her home.

High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens says that her risqué photos, including a full frontal nude, leaked out because she trusted the wrong person not because she was trying to gain attention.
"Nobody was supposed to see it. It's unfortunate that everybody did," the nineteen-year-old told Seventeen magazine for its February issue.
"It shows that you can't trust everyone . . . I'm much better now. But truthfully, I don't like talking about it," she adds.
Hudgens has learnt her lesson and even is she clicks more nude photos of herself you are unlikely to see them.
"With the Internet these days, you don't have a personal life. Nothing is private: Everyone knows everything, and they can find out everything about you. You're not as safe as you think you are, and you have to be aware of the people you're around," she says.
Hudgens became globally famous when risqué photos that she clicked using her own digital camera, before embarking on her career, leaked out over the internet in September last year.
Following the incident, Hudgens asked for forgiveness from her fans, and said that the situation has left her embarrassed.
The scandal did not adversely affect her job with Disney Channel and her relationship with boyfriend and costar Zac Efron.
Hudgen's mother too remained unfazed by the incident. Hudgens recalls how she reacted when Hudgens broke the news to her.
"Well, everyone can be naked if they want to," her mother said.
