(Newser) – Britney Spears’ onetime paparazzo-turned-lover Adnan Ghalib says he was stabbed because he was planning to post a sex tape of the pop wreck on his website, the Sun reports. The video is reportedly of the “Toxic” star performing a private striptease during an overnight getaway in Mexico during a particularly, er, erratic point in her mental health.

"Yes, I was injured by an attacker,” Ghalib said of the ongoing investigation. "I can't say much about the cowardly attack other than: a) you better come a lot stronger than that if you want to make a point and b) most will be surprised by those behind it.”
