Lutfi to Britney's Family: You Don't Fit In!

1/29/2008 7:03 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Sam Lutfi called Harvey Levin a few minutes ago, Britney by his side, and railed about the story we posted that Brit's family believes Lutfi is poison.

Lutfi said there was no intervention last night, but then said Britney's family "barged in." For the record, the family is staging an intervention and Lutfi has been kept in the dark.

Lutfi said of the family, "They have an agenda. Their agenda is jealously because they don't fit in. I do. They see her three times a year."

Britney was by the phone during Lutfi's conversation with Levin. Lutfi claimed he did not force Britney to buy a car, asking Brit, "Did I force you to buy a car." In a heavy southern accent she responded, "No." He continued, "Do I ever bug you." She replied, "We argue."

Lutfi said Britney's mom is fine with him -- it's her dad who's a problem. Family sources tell TMZ that's baloney -- both Lynne and Jamie "are on the same page," feeling like Sam is a "megalomaniac" who is motivated by "evil."

Stay tuned ...

I'm scared for Brit. She should read the Blender article that came out yesterday. It's thoughtful and compassionate. Maybe the article will prompt her to a) seek treatment for herself and b) eject the negative, leaching people from her life. Lutfi sounds like he's manipulative and dangerous. I know, from my own experience, that it can be difficult to leave someone who has worked to isolate you from friends and family. But it can be done. I agree with the sentiment of the Blender article that Britney needs a friend -- someone outside entertainment, someone who will give it to her straight, someone who isn't on the payroll. I like Britney, always have -- she's super talented. But she's going through a bad spell and I hope she finds the strength to work her way through it.

I think Sam seems to be good for her, why hate on him? He is protective and always there for her and not looking to get a piece.

said it before and time will tell the truth....when you have a predator involved who has great influence over your
child or other family member, you have to be smart and not attack
that person and cause a confrontation that you will loose, keeping in
mind the importance of what really needs to be done. lynne may not be
smart enough to deal with this kind of character, or to be in this
situation even if she wants to help her daughter. britney at this
point almost needs deprogramming type techniques b/c he - lutfi has
been working on her for quite a while now. she trusts him, in her
state of mind, she would believe him over anyone apparently. praying
she will be able to see through him and really understand what is/has
happened to her and how his so called HELP/FRIENDSHIP/MANAGEMENT has
brought her down so far and yes, contributed to her loosing custody
of her children.

Again i will say, Britney, if you can find sleeze,
you know you can find good, honest decent people too, keep on
looking, they are out there. You do know right from wrong...its just gotten
very confusing with the heartbreaks of recent year. a real friend
would have made sure most of these bad things would not have
happened. lynn, hope you are prepared to stay awhile..and dad you
are a real true man's man, the kind lutfi can relate to, so give him
heck man, and don't give up on your daughter bc she needs you to
stand up for her and to help her with the honest truth, something she
hasn't really heard in a long time, just could you please leave off
all the cuss words.

Sam Lufti is another Howard K. Stern. These parasites latch onto women & drain them of all their energy & money. Britney's family needs to get rid of him ASAP.

I love it!    

Britney you stupid heifer! Let Sam get lost for awhile and let your Mama help you get some help so you can get your life back on track. Do you ever want to see your kids again without a babysitter watching your every move? Has Sam helped you do that in all the time he's been there? Then what does that tell you? He's got a motive as well and it doesn't involve what's best for you and your kids. Think about that. I'm sure they miss YOU so much. Lose Sam!

appauled by the stalkarazzi

Just relased today 1/29. News Media is starting to take a look at how the paparazzi and gossip rags are profitting from Britney. Worth a read!

And, it drives home the fact that the paparrazzi and gossip mills keep making up BS to keep making money at Brit's expense! This so-called post about Brit is the same type of BS

He is definitely Howard K Stern to Britney aka Anna Nicole. But it doesn't matter because she is so trashy and dysfunctional, she will only attract another loser to her inner sanctum. Sick attracts Sick.

They all need to stop. He needs to shut up, the mom needs to stop playing to the media also and Britney needs to go away forever. Louisiana or a desert island, something long term. Enough of all this trash!

Just The Opposite...A Bright Future Ahead    

I was on the fence about this guy, but he just totally blew it for me when he said Britney's family, "have an agenda. Their agenda is jealously because they don't fit in. I do. They see her three times a year."

I don't care how much they don't "fit in," they are still her parents. Her father Jamie seems to me to be the most common-sense one out of the bunch. Now I'd really like dear Osama to take a hike. His little phone calls to everyone - TMZ, Barbara Walters - are showing just how un-professional he really is. This man is not a "manager" by any means - he's a wannabe. And that's all.

Not for celebrity but this is wrong    

OMG The family doesnt fit in really???? Maybe cause she has people like him convincing her of such a thing. And whats up with him always calling some media and asking brittany questions in the background. I know that brittany has mental issues but i really do feel bad for her it seems like everyone is pulling her like a tug of war. And these media hungry ass holes with comments like the family dont fit in is ridiculous. So keep making your money off of a bipolar millionaire, thats your only chance at making money Jerk! Are you Lufti also giving her advice that the court hearing arent fitting into her schedule either what an idiot preying on someone so fragile.
