New Subpoena in Brit Case

2/4/2008 8:44 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael SandsThe man hired by Mark Vincent Kaplan (K-Daddy's lawyer) to field media calls has been subpoenaed in the Britney Spears case.

The subpoena subject -- PR guru Michael Sands. Everyone, including Sands' personal lawyer, Randolph W. Wright, is mum on the nature of the subpoena, however, one source says it is "substantial."

Britney's lawyers, Trope and Trope, drafted the subpoena. Expect a dogfight over whether the info Sands has is protected by the attorney-client privilege.

Ummm..if her estate is only worth $40,000,000 as her "attorney" Streisand says...how is she getting $737,000 a month, as was claimed in her child custody court thingy?

Even if her money earns 10%--that's only $333,333 a month. (Is my math wrong?) So where is the other $400,000 coming from? So she's not living on income from investments?? OR is she living on principal, too?

I am not a financial whiz, so maybe it all makes sense. But the difference between what Forbes says she has--$100,000,000--and what her "attorney" says she's worth. It all makes you wonder. Especially since it now appears that her business manager is pals with Lutfi...

I think you are absolutely correct. I think all this is part of a big conspiracy on Kaplan and KFed's part to break Britney down completely, mentally and physically. She is but a shell of what her former self was. It is quit sad. I do hope Kaplan and KFed get busted.

Everybody thinks KFed is so great. He's just lying low because if he does...he gets the big financial payoff. Plus people will think he's a good person, pity him, hire him. He's no good.

Shar and her two kids are benefiting as well. Of course, she's going to say Kevin's a good Dad. Think about it. If your man left you pregnant for a popstar, you'd be pretty devastated and I doubt anyone would be praising a guy for doing that to her, even if she did forgive him.

Everybody is benefiting financially from Britney. Such a shame. She didn't deserve any of this, rich little brat or not.

Good luck Lynne and Jamie. Hang in there. Britney still have lots of fans and people rooting for her to get well.

Brit's new CD "Blackout' is bringing in dough..don't forget she has perfume (3) and apparently from what I've read a clothing line too...they say she owes them 50 thousand dollars though. I am sure the fifty five thousand dollar Mercedes Benz she just paid cash for was almost like pocket change. Damn I didn't realize that girl was worth SSSOOO much money. I do love her "Blackout" cd. I have worn one out already, I am on my second copy. Let's all pray for Brit she needs her family to be strong and stand up for her and to help her find her way again. I do think she can be happy again and be a great mom. She needs help and Sam, Adnon and T&T aren't the ones she can count on. GO BRITNEY!!

just wondering    

...I say, book Richard Bransons Island, provide Brit with a team of the best Doctors, bring along a fresh set of lawyers for K-milk, Brit and Judge Ito, a couple of nannies, Jayden & Sean and secure the island with the flippin army and let them hash it all out....then let Brit stay behind with the med team and her babies and nannies and some security...and all will be fine...next to that...the girl is doomed.

For those whom may ever question Sams intentions. On x17online the day of Jan 31st he text them stating the mother did not want her to get help. Now he is complaining Britney does not need a conservator or mental help. Come on Sam - is it you with the MPD? Afterall, we know you post under different alias - post on this site. FYI

Lauri, I am sorry! I am just shedding the light on the surface to let people know his type of actions. The full details are going to be given to Britney's parents. This will allow them to address the issues along with being able to divulge what information they deem appropriate. It is in my opinion that Britney laid a victim to Mr. Lufti and his actions.

This family has gone through enough and at this point they need to focus on the health and welfare of their daughter.

There is without a doubt more information to come forth that will answer several unanswered questions.
