Lutfi Won't Face Off With Brit's Parents in Court

2/1/2008 6:21 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Sam Lutfi tells TMZ he's not going to show up for the court hearing today.

TMZ broke the story about Britney's parents going to court in an attempt to establish a conservatorship. They believe Lutfi is placing their daughter's health and assets at risk.

Lutfi says he is "appalled and disgusted" that the parents have gone to court, adding that "Britney is in control of her assets and her business manager is in control of her assets." Lutfi says his lawyers are discussing his legal options.

Sources say Britney's medical status right now is "gravely disabled."

smells like Britney Spears    

This dude needs to just give it up and go home. What claim does he have to her? He's not blood kin and from what I understand he appointed HIMSELF her manager. Sounds like someone is a little self important. He needs to go slither back under the rock from which he came. Your reign of leechy-ness is over.

Finally.. And not a second to late! Brit's parents are 100% right on this! I commend them and I hope and pray that some day Brit looks back and sees that they did this because they love her and because they want the best for their grandsons. Once this big nose loser Lutfi is totally gone, I'm sure Brit will be able to look back and see how much he has contributed to destroying her life. From what I have heard about this Freeloader he traps his clients into keeping him with threats.

Lutfi.. if you try to blackmail Brit no one will believe you. You are a loser!

Best wishes Brit, Get well soon - your boys need you!

There have been so many rumours and tabloid stories about Lutfi, is there any solid proof anywhere, not just heresay, proof?

Donbear you have got to stop with the racist comments. Mr. Caterpillar Chin is originally from Afghanistan, he is not Arabian. Hurling those stupid remarks just gives people who cry "racisim" a good reason to, well, cry "racism."

Sam Lutfi is to Britney, what Howard K. Stern was to Anna Nicole. Thank goodness someone is stepping up to protect Britney before she faces the same fate as Anna. Where do these looser guys come from? They leach off of these women, drug them and get them under their control, get them to turn their backs on family, etc. And all in the name of being their "friend". A "friend" who has no income none the less!

There goes your meal ticket Lufti. She's been seriously ill for a year, and if he really had her best interests at heart, would have ceded control to a court appointed conservator ages ago. And let's not mention that Adnan creature, oy! He won't be gettin' with any celeb hotties anytime soon. As soon as she (or Lufti) kicked him to the curb he was on the boob tube, issuing cryptic bits of her personal struggle to the masses. Loved the disclaimer on the interview indicating he wasn't getting paid. He got paid, but baby, the payback will be a bitch.

I can't even talk about Brit-Brit, just pray for this child. I think she's presenting the signs of Schizophrenia. It usually strikes between 18 and 25 and goes from there.....I think she can come out of this, with proper treatment, but she's going to have to release her need for fame.

Apart from her elderly grandfather - who genuinely cares about Britney's welfare? Its sad and very ugly to see them all fighting over who looks after what and yet, in the long run, Britney is the one nobody is fighting to look after HER and give her the love, emotional support and stability that EVERYONE needs - that is a far harder job they don't want so they leave THAT responsibility to psychiatrists in a hospital - and the emotional and mental abuse of a young woman will just go on and on. She needs love and time and guidance in a supportive environment and she should have been able to get that from those who claim to love her before ever getting into the mess she is now. The last thing she needs is people she should have been able depend on for support fighing over her assets while leaving her in the care of psychiatrists and their drugs.

If she REALLY needs a psychiatrist then she needs one that HELPS her.
One like this
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=1580550859337309430
One that believes in helping not drugging.

There aren't many of them around that do help, which is why someone has commented under another article
that the ward Britney is in is a "hell hole", and why so many people find Adrianne (?)'s description fits psychiatric wards in the majority of hospitals.

She needs HELP not HELL.
