Brit Shops for Car During Intervention

1/29/2008 5:44 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

There is a lot of behind-the-scenes anger surrounding the Britney Spears' intervention, and the anger is directed at one Sam Lutfi, pictured here with Brit and mama Lynne today at Beverly Hills Mercedes.

As TMZ first reported, the family is staging an intervention so Britney can get help for her bipolar disorder. Family sources say they are furious at Lutfi, claiming he pushed Brit into going to B.H. Mercedes today to buy a new car -- in the middle of the effort to save her.

One source says the family believes Lutfi has been a "counterproductive, disquieting force" who has done nothing but harm.

I have believed from day one that Ms. Spears will not get better until she distances herself from the blood sucking leeches she has surrounded herself with. They do not give a damn about this young lady. If she died tomorrow how soon they would forget that she ever existed. Brittany you are not important to these people. The only thing they care about is what you can give them...that is all. Think about who would grieve for you if you died...it would be your family and friends who you grew up with. It would be your beautiful children, your sister, your parents. Yes, I have some criticism for your parents but as a mom myself I know I have made many mistakes as my children grew up. We aren't perfect. I pray today, Brittany, as your family intervenes to save your life...because that is what they are doing...that you will open up your heart to their wish for you. And that is for you to get better and live a good life...it is what you deserve. I hope you will go home and surround yourself with the people who really do care about you. I feel that is the only way you will have any chance of getting better and healing. You will never get better if you continue to associate with the people you have allowed to use you. That includes this Sam guy whoever he is.

Again #1/#48... I'll repeat my comments from earlier:

Remember we live in a market based
economy. This stuff sells, as evidenced by your interest and your
comments.

The paps will not leave her alone until you choose not to support
their habits with your insatiable desire for content.

As for me, I don't mind it so much - as watching this no talent a$$
clown take a plunge in to depravity has been quite entertaining.

But wait, "I don't care for her", "I don't support her", ... "this is
a human being" you say? You're right, still doesn't matter to me.
Yes, part of a celebrities life is being a celebrity. We all have
job related stress, only most of us aren't compensated millions for
it.

And by posting again...you just upped their ad revenue. Hey kettle, this is pot, you know you're black right?

hmmm Mamas back and Brit Brit has out her checkbook.. How sweet, if this guy is such a bad influence then WTF is Mama Spears tagging along for, hmmmm could it be because he is spending her money and not her !!

And to the person who asked. Removing someone's custodial rights is an extremely difficult process. First and foremost she would actually have to have a diagnosis. She would then have to prove to be a repeated threat to her own safety. Then you go to court and TRY to get her conserved. But honestly you have to be completely non-functional for this to happen and it is un heard of in wealthy circles as they have the money to pay people to take care of stuff to keep them looking like they have it together at least marginally.

Wake Up    


TMZ--you have no proof of any real "intervention," and there has been NO diagnosis of Britney to indicate bipolar disorder. It is shameful that you would publish this stuff without any factual evidence. No matter what you may think based on observation of her behavior, using the phrase, "help with her bipolar disorder" is completely inappropriate, as no such determination has been made.
The APA actually issued official statements against you and other tabloid journals for making these unsubstantiated claims in the first place.
It very well may turn out that she does have some sort of disorder or other problem, but making specific claims before-the-fact is reprehensible. A more mature and responsible celeb than Britney would sue you and win.

For the past few months Sam has been the only onek eepin this girl from total self destruction. Where were her parents month ago, they weren't even talking to her. And if it were not for Sam they would not be talking to her now. Lynne didn't even show up to the hospital after her own daughter had a mental breakdown three weeks ago. It is only now, three weeks later that she has come to see her own daughter. Even britney's father, who Britney doesn't even speak to, got to that hospital! Lynne should thank God that her daughter has a friend like Sam in her daughters life, or her daughter would have been left vulnerable to the like of Adnan, who was loving the fact that Britney was slowly killing herself, (after all those types of pictures, and stories sell for big bucks).
Lynne is a disgusting mother, and bashing someone who has been the only real friend in her child's life, especially when she herself couldn't bother to be bothered, is disgraceful behaviour.

Don't you mean that the family is mad at Adnan - the creepy FUG pap who is selling out Britney for $2 million.

Its Adnan who goes with Britney to hotels at all hours in the night and off to Mexico. Adnan is driving a new Mercedes likely either bought by Brit for him or with money he earned by selling Britney pictures and stories.

Sam seems to lay low and tries to keep Britney in control. Sam takes her to court and depositions. Sam takes her shopping.

Adnan likes the spotlight and goes on crazy sex-filled night time ventures with Britney to make a buck!

Adnan is the bad guy, not Sam!

huh, missing some documents    

Wow - she can be angry at me too then. According to page six Brit took Sam and Mama to breakfast this morning at the Beverly Hills Hotel and they did some make up shopping before heading off to the dealership. The answer to the pressing question is simple: Brit forgot she was angry at Sam because she was british last night. Remember, she conveniently forgets everything she says and does when she is british. Phew, mystery solved and no need to call Matlock or Angela Lansbury. I feel better now. How bout you Brit?
