Britney's bodyguard quits, claiming she sexually harassed him
Britney Spears' lead bodyguard has quit, claiming she sexually harassed him by parading around naked in front of him and inviting him into her bedroom.
Fernando Flores is considering filing a multi-million dollar sexual harassment lawsuit against the singer, The Sun newspaper reports.
It says Flores, a former cop, has confided in friends that he feared losing his job if he didn't respond to her unwelcome sexual advances.
He says the 28-year-old singer often traipsed around nude and harassed him with a series of odd invitations into her bedroom, the paper says.
"She was always giving him the come on and he felt if he didn't reciprocate he could lose his job. He finally handed in his notice last week and is considering legal action," the paper quoted a friend of Flores as saying.
"Working for Britney is tough. She's a nightmare to deal with, her emotions are out of control, she runs round the house naked and yelling at staff."
The last straw for Flores came when Spears' dad and legal guardian Jamie became upset when Britney left the home without underwear.
He ordered her security staff to ensure she never leaves the house without a bra.
"Jamie went mental when he saw the pictures and Fernando was made the fall guy. He was not fired but told he was to blame. He had had enough."
