Britney SpearsAs if the well-publicized divorce and custody battle between and wasn’t already enough of a carnival show, Monday saw new surprises in the former famous couple’s lives. Tony Barretto, a former Spears bodyguard, was revealed as the “secret witness” that’s been hinted at by attorney Gloria Allred.

The bodyguard was there to allegedly testify to “drug use, nudity and safety issues” on the part of Britney Spears, actions the bodyguard said took place in front of her two children. Barretto, who is a father himself, lived at the Spears home full-time from March to May, and was terminated because – according to Allred – he did not hear Spears when she asked him to pick up her hat. Britney’s lawyer is going to step away from her case after apparently butting heads with Spears over legal strategy.

Britney’s album, meanwhile, is still set for its November release date.
