So says Alli Sims. In an exclusive new interview with Us Weekly, on stands today, Alli Sims, in exchange for some free press for her singing career (snort), is talking about Britney.

As reported yesterday, Alli openly expresses her distrust of Adnan and suggests that if she had been around during the holidays when AFed inserted himself into Britney’s life, she would not have let him get close.

Interestingly enough, she also says that she does NOT think Britney is using drugs and that she does NOT think Britney is crazy. Alli explains that Britney is very upset about losing her children and appears to be unstable because she’s so emotional. But is clearly adamant when she insists that her friend is NOT mentally unsound.

When asked why Britney repeatedly bails on her commitments, Alli explains:

She’s upset about everything going on and acts on feelings of “I’m too nervous to do this right now” or “I don’t want to do this right now.” She is sad that the kids are coming and going. I don’t think it’s anything other than just being upset like any mom would be if they were in this situation.

Really? Like any mom? Because most moms are unselfish. Just sayin’…

As for Alli’s thoughts on the sinister Sam Lutfi, according to her, he’s a positive influence:

We met him through mutual friends. He’s a really nice guy and a positive influence. He is one of the only people Britney trusts and listens to. When he is around, she ends up doing what needs to be done — court appearances, meetings, et cetera. When you go through your whole life just listening to what everybody tells you to do, you get to a point where you’re not used to having to pick out yourself what is really important. And if you have somebody that you trust helping you with those decisions, it makes it easier. She trusts him and she trusts me, and if we pulled her aside and were like, “No, this is really important,” it’s not a fight, it’s not an argument. It’s, “Oh, OK, OK, OK. Then let’s go ahead and get it done.”
