This says a lot about how bad Britney’s drug and alcohol problems were and still are.
According to TMZ reports:
Working for Britney Spears is like owning a Gremlin, they both come with a set of instructions — the biggest one … keep Britney away from drugs and alcohol!
TMZ has obtained a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) that dancers were required to sign before working on her latest music video. It specifically states, “Contractor acknowledges that it is essential that [Britney] not be exposed to any alcohol, drugs, or controlled substances.”
The NDA even goes on to say that the dancers can be subjected to drug testing at any time and can be fired for failing a test or even refusing to take one.
With Britney comes much responsibility.
Below is an ironic section that speaks about not disclosing the information that you’re reading…oops!
(f) Restriction on Removal/Duplication: Without Company’s prior written consent in each instance and except as expressly required by Company in connection with Contractor’s engagement, Contractor shall not remove, reproduce, summarize or copy or authorize, participate in, aid or abet the removal, reproduction, summarizing or copying of any Confidential Information. Contractor shall immediately return to Company all Confidential Information when Contractor’s engagement terminates or at such earlier time as such Confidential Information is no longer required for Contractor’s engagement or Company requests that such Confidential Information be returned.
This is the section of the contract that specifically speaks to Britney’s sobriety
4. Contractor acknowledges that it is essential that Artist not be exposed to any alcohol, drugs or controlled substances (“Prohibited Substances”). Accordingly, Contractor agrees to refrain from the distribution, dispensation, solicitation, possession, sale, transfer or use of any Prohibited Substance (collectively, the “Prohibited Activities”). Contractor further acknowledges that Contractor occupies a safety-sensitive position and that any or all of the Prohibited Activities could create a situation that is unsafe for or could endanger Contractor, Artist and/or others and could substantially interfere with Contractor’s job performance and/or that of others.
It takes a village to keep a pop star off the sauce…
