WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 8
has been caught up in yet more controversy with the release of photographs that show her romping naked in a swimming pool with unknown 26-year-old actor Mike Encinias
The snaps were taken after Brit had broken down in tears at a music video shoot earlier that day. She invited Mike, who was working as an extra on the shoot, back to her hotel along with his friends.
"Britney had gone completely off the rails. She'd lost the plot and was acting crazy," says a witness.
"Britney got with this guy Mike and things soon got steamy. Before long she had stripped off in the pool and was messing around with this man, putting her arm round him and laughing and joking … simulating sex with him, putting on a really hot show.
"They got out of the pool and Britney went to the bathroom where she had a meltdown. She collapsed on the floor and was babbling."
The release of the shocking photographs follows worrying reports that Britney stripped off at a photo shoot for Allure
"She took off her wig and then stripped down to the waist for no apparent reason, before sitting for hair and make-up," says the magazine's editor Linda Wells.
