She got rid of hair for custody battle

Britney Spears shaved her head because she feared drug traces would be found in her hair, it’s claimed.

The singer, 25, was concerned that she’d lose her kids if she was linked to narcotics.

Once she’d razored her skull, she begged her mum to get hold of the clippings which she left on the salon floor.

‘Kevin taunted Britney that even his smoking marijuana near her would leave traces that could be picked up by drug testing,’ a source tells the Daily Mirror.

‘He threatened to use that against her in a custody battle.’

Britney is fighting over young sons Jayden James and Sean Preston with ex-hubby Kevin Federline, 29.
