Brit's Right Hand Man -- Deposed!

1/24/2008 3:13 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Sam Lutfi, the man who has been all around Britney for more than a year, is about to have his deposition taken in the ongoing custody battle.
Britney and Sam
We're told Lutfi is about to arrive at the offices of K-Daddy's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan. Lutfi has tried to block the depo, even running from Aaron Cohen, who served him with the depo subpoena.

We're told one of the lines of questioning involves the photo agency X17. We're told Kaplan wants to know if Brit made a deal with X17 to "catch" her living life, and if Lutfi is the bagman. If Brit is making money from a photo agency, that wouldn't sit well with the Commish.

Stay tuned ...

I think she has mental issues that may have resulted from a tumultuous childhood.

I feel sad for her. Her life has become a pathetic example of what drugs and alcohol can do to the best and most successful of people. Once upon a time I thought she was so pretty and such a fun entertainer..I had her first CD back in the day when she first came out. In interviews she was so sweet and she seemed to have such a strong relationship to her mom. What the heck happened? Did mom get all star struck and rich off of Britney and forsake her daughter? Or did Britney at some point just stop giving a damn? I don't get it and it only seems to be getting worse. Do I like her? I don't hate her, and I don't know her..so I don't really have an answer. I do feel sorry for her though and wish someone would help her, or she would get a clue and help herself. Doesn't she know that even if she farts the whole world is gonna know about it? She seems like she just doesn't care any more. I do not understand that girl AT ALL.

No, I'm not a fan of her but she's only human, if she weren't famous people wouldn't be talking so much about it. There are other women who are worse than that, so just live and let live.

She should show some responsibility more. She couldn't be responsible enough to take care of her own children! Even her ex husband's wife cares more about the children than she does. She just took a wrong path in life and that's why her ego is going down the drain. She needs a little let up in her life. Who knows if she will be ready again.

Hey, "what's going on..." It has to do with the X17 photogs being invited into her house on a couple of occasions and reproting what they observed to the media (X17) for "EXCLUSIVE" stories. There've been a lot of reporters who claim that she calls them about 15 minutes before she goes anyplace so that they can all be there. Who knows. She's a media whore, among other things.

Well...this could be interesting. How can she possibly claim "Ohhhh, I'm so afraid" while she's letting them know her every move plus putting society, as a whole, in danger with her rediculous driving! What on earth makes them think he will tell the truth? Does "You're under oath" mean anything to some of these people like it does the rest of us?

Does Britney Desperately Seek Paparazzi?AOLPosted:
2007-10-01
17:09:31Filed Under: Britney Spears, Star Scandals, Music News(Oct.
1) -- If you feel bad for Britney Spears having to constantly fend
off hordes of paparazzi, you may lose some of your sympathy if you
keep reading. In a new column, Chicago Sun-Times writer Bill Zwecker
offers some insight into Spears' daily workings. Zwecker's sources
claim that almost daily, Spears finds out where the paparazzi will be
that day, and then makes sure she heads to that area. Spears sometimes
even does the grunt work herself, Zwecker reports, calling hotels to
find out what press junket or celebrities will be there on that day.

Press Wherever Britney Spears goes nowadays, dozens of flash bulbs
are popping all around her thanks to a constant swarm of eager
paparazzi.1 of 9 "Even though her professional career and personal
life are train wrecks and she seemingly is paying little attention to
her appearance, she is doing everything she can to make sure she's
photographed almost daily," a source inside of Britney's camp tells
Zwecker. The source goes on to report that Spears or someone in her
entourage will call hotels, nightclubs and other popular paparazzi
hangouts to "find out what's going on ... who's there today." The pop
star will then show up to get her picture taken. "Britney is obsessed
with keeping herself in the public eye. She has told me several
times, "If they don't see you [in the media], they forget you ... I'm
not going to let that happen,'" the source said. The surprising
revleations come after a tumultuous year for Spears that included
many complaints about the paparazzi. In an interview with NBC's Matt
Lauer, Spears said that photographers "crossed the line" and said "I
feel like I'm a target." In another incident, Spears beat on a
photographers car with an umbrella in the days leading up to her
checking into Promises rehab.
