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 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.
