Britney Spears Told By Counselor: 'Get Sober or Die'

Jun 21, 2007

"Britney (Spears) is telling her mom she’s trying to get her drinking under control- but clearly she is not,” a source told the National Enquirer. Her counselor John Sundahl spoke exclusively to the magazine and told Britney as bluntly as he could; ‘If you fall off the wagon, I don’t think you’ll live.

Britney Spears Told By Counselor: 'Get Sober or Die'

In an exclusive interview published this week in the Enquirer, the man who's been trying to help Britney Spears through her nightmare of booze and drugs talked frankly about the tough tactics he’s used in dealing with the troubled pop princess. It is a frightening revelation.


“I told her: ‘If you don’t want to get sober for yourself, do it for your kids,’” said Sundahl, who’s a recovering alcoholic and chairman of Britney’s AA chapter in Los Angeles. He concluded that Britney has slipped off the wagon several times, but he added: “She truly wants to stop what she’s doing- she’s changed her life in another direction, where she doesn’t get drunk every night and pass out.’

But sadly, sources say Britney has been pulling the wool over her eyes- and over those of her terrified mother. Counselor Sundahl admits he last saw his celebrity client on June 1.


And since then, Britney has been on a booze-fueled tear, sources tell the magazine. According to the report in early June she took sons Sean Preston, 21 months, and 9-month-old Jayden James to Hawaii. "She was drinking there to the point where she threw up all over her hotel bathroom," said a source.

Added an insider: “She later passed out, leaving Alli to handle the boys by herself." On June 11, Britney was back in Los Angeles, spending a girls’ night out at Joseph’s club.”

“She was downing rum and coke, vodka, and shots of booze,” says the source. It was at Joseph’s three years ago that Britney met Kevin Federline- and the memory was her downfall. "She was feeling sad and reminiscing- and Britney drinks when she gets sad,” said the insider. "The real problem for her is that she wants Kevin and the boys back with her- in a life like the one she had before.”


Kevin is just as worried about Britney as her mother and the rest of the family, says sources.“He insists she has a nanny at all times.”
