Betty Confidential has the inside scoop on Britney Spears’ dangerous health behavior that has her family worried she’ll end up back in a psych ward.

A touring Britney Spears is becoming overwhelmed by the demands of the road — despite help from her assistant, a nanny, friends and family. The pop star’s conservator-dad, Jamie, was especially alarmed when he caught his daughter popping over–the–counter diet pills, which she washed down with Red Bull, before a recent performance. "Britney was definitely trying to get high by taking too many diet pills and energy drinks," says a family insider. "Jamie thinks the combination of the two is making her whacked–out and, causing her to lash out in weird angry rampages."


Given Britney’s tumultuous history, her reliance on diet pills is extremely risky, according to medical experts, especially when those pills are mixed with the kinds of prescription psychiatric medications that Britney is believed to be taking. "Britney uses green–tea supplements, [Lab 88’s herbal ephedra–free] Metabo Speed XXX, Dexatrim and apple cider vinegar to control her weight and energy levels," adds the insider. "She also pours those 5–Hour energy drinks into her Red Bulls."

The side effects of combining weight–loss aids with prescription medication can include increased anxiety, panic attacks and even seizures.
