Troubled singer Britney Spears has missed eight out of the 14 court-ordered
drug tests, according to reports, because she was unable to be reached in
time, or at all. But her lawyer Anne Kiley tells In Touch that Brit is not
to blame. Although a missed test is considered a failed test, Kiley explains
that Britney was forced to change her phone number five times because her
phone was stolen, and the court’s rigidity is unreasonable when Britney
can’t respond quickly.
“If drugs are in her system for 24 to 48 hours, what difference does it make if you respond in one hour to a phone call to be tested?” Kiley says. Despite the continuing drama, she adds that Britney is in good spirits. “She is doing great,” she tells In Touch. “I really think she can put this issue behind her.”
