Sam Lutfi filed a lawsuit against Britney Spears and her parents for libel and defamation, the Associated Press reports. Sam Lutfi is Britney’s former manager.
Lutfi’s attorney, Bryan J. Freedman said in a statement Tuesday that there is “overwhelming evidence from independent witnesses” proving his client’s case and that “at the time of the trial in this action, the jury will have an opportunity to weigh the credibility of the witnesses.”
Jamie Spears, Britney’s Dad and permanent conservator, was granted a restraining order against Sam Lutfi and Britney’s ex Adnan Ghalib, on Friday.
According to court papers Jamie felt Lutfi and Ghalib were trying to gain control of Britney’s affairs.
Britney Spears has been threatening to cancel her up coming Circus tour if she was not going to be premitted to bring her sons.
Britney and ex-husband Kevin Federline have come to an agreement, so the show will go on. “Both Sean Preston and Jayden James will, in fact, be joining Britney throughout the duration of her tour,” says Spears’s blog.
According to TMZ.com, the pop star would have homes in three places — New Jersey, New Orleans and Los Angeles — so that the children could stay nearby while Spears commuted back and forth from regional concert venues.
“Britney is so excited to kick off her tour,” her blog says. “She has been enjoying every moment of rehearsals and is looking forward to performing in front of a live audience again.”
Her Circus tour kicks off March 3 in New Orleans and ends April 28 in Chicago.
Doing you think Sean and Jayden will enjoy touring with Mommy?
Britney Spear’s father has obtained new restraining orders against Sam Lutfi (her former manager), Adnan Ghalib (her ex-boyfriend)
and a lawyer.
People Magazine reports, Spears’s father says her cell phone records show “numerous telephone conversations” and text messages with her ex-manager Sam Lutfi and former boyfriend, paparazzo Adnan Ghalib.
“[Britney] innocently informs [Ghalib] of her destinations and he then arranges for paparazzi to meet and film her to his financial benefit,” Jamie Spears says. “[He] is harmful to Ms. Spears and to her recovery.”
The restraining orders forbid Lutfi and Ghalib from contacting Spears or coming within 250 yards of her, her property or family members.
Britney has really turned her life around over the last year – a platinum album and a huge concert tour – let’s hope she continues on this great path.
According to the Daily Mirror, Britney Spears has signed a book deal worth more than $15 million dollars.
Britney will start writing the book following her sold out world “Circus” tour.
A source was quoted as saying,
“There have been numerous unofficial biographies printed about Britney, but she’s never agreed to pen her own tome – until now. And some of the stories she’s got are absolute dynamite. She’s kept diaries so there’s nothing she’ll leave out unless she wants to.”
“If the deal goes ahead she will write between three and five books throughout the next decade – it’s one of the most lucrative book deals in showbiz history.
With the way Britney is followed by photographers and the tabloids I thought we already knew EVERYTHING there is to know about her. This should be an interesting read. What do you think??
Britney Spears is moving.
Her Blog stated:
“I just took my babies to our new home and they loved it! I can’t wait to move in.” ~Britney
According to US Magazine, Britney said she wanted to move to a:
” lower density, more quiet and less trafficked neighborhood,” She wanted a home “more accessible to parks and recreation areas” for her children.
Her new home is in The Oaks community in Calabasas.
Britney Spears rang in the New Year with her sons Jayden James and Preston at her brother Bryan’s intimate wedding in Louisiana.
It was only close family, very small and intimate.
Check out how beautiful (and happy) she looks in the photos posted on her website.
It’s official – Britney Spears no longer has any control of herself. How sad is that.
According to Access Hollywood, court papers were filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday, making a judge’s October ruling (which made the conservatorship over Britney permanent) official.
The conservatorship over the pop star legally began on January 5, 2009.
The agreement gives permanent control of the pop star’s finances to her father, Jamie Spears, along with attorney Andrew Wallet. While Jamie is sole conservator over Britney’s personal matters.
The papers state the following:
“is substantially unable to manage … her financial resources or to resist fraud or undue influence.”
Britney’s personal life:
“is unable properly to provide for his or her personal needs for physical health, food, clothing, or shelter.”
Jamie Spears now has “the power to restrict and limit visitors by any means.”
I can’t imagine living my life (especially being a multi-trillionaire, having been married, divorced, having 2 children) as an adult – with my father having the authority to still “control” my life.
Supposedly Britney does not object to the arrangement. Or maybe her father told her not to object. What do you think??
