Britney Spears's Former Assistant Speaks Out 12/3/08
Britney Spears' cousin Alli Sims has spoken for the first time about her
ousting as the pop star's assistant, insisting her former boss isn't
ready for a comeback.
Sims was one of the people dismissed by Spears' father Jamie when he
took control of the singer's personal and professional affairs in
February (08), and she's still sore about being cast aside.
Speaking for the first time since she was replaced, Sims tells American
magazine In Touch she was used as "a scapegoat" as Spears' family took
control of the troubled star's life, following a double mental health
And Sims, who worked for Spears throughout 2007 and into 2008 - as the
singer struggled with personal problems, including a divorce and child
custody battle with ex-husband Kevin Federline, is convinced her cousin
isn't ready to be back on world stages, performing live.
She says, "This isnít any old job. How can they say Britney is sick and
then shove her out on the road, with all that pressure?Ē Sore Sims feels
for her relative, but she's even more concerned about rebuilding her own
reputation after it was ruined by the Spears family. She adds, "I have
been accused of so many things I didnít do. My reputation has been
dragged through the mud.Ē
