London: Singer Britney Spears has been banned by her "inner-circle" from owning a mobile phone to keep her under control.
The move has been made after the singer was accused of sending nude pictures to her former bodyguard Fernando Flores, who then threatened to use them in court.
"Britney`s inner-circle keep a close eye on her to ensure she keeps herself together. One of the rules is she gave up her cell phone. That helps them keep her under control,"the sun.co.uk quoted a source as saying.
