Britney's manager should think about this next time he dopes her up

A restraining order against Britney Spears' companion and manager Sam Lutfi alleges that he drugged the troubled star, cut her phone lines and took control of her finances, staff and even the paparazzi that trail her.

The order was based on a lengthy declaration by Spears' mother Lynne, who claims that after her daughter met Lutfi, he "essentially moved into Britney's home and has purported to take control of her life, home and finances."

What's frightening to me is that I suffer from anxiety issues and at one point or another have taken all of the drugs found in his system. Not all at once, mind you, but was told by my physicians that combining a few of those drugs was perfectly ok.

That makes a lot more sense than "dead of natural causes"

Need DETAILS TMZ!!!!!

How do they determine whether it's an "accident" or "suicide"?????

What defines "abuse" -- too many, mixing inappropriate drugs????

How is a person an "accidental abuser"?????

This is confusing with that amount of drug in your system that it ruled an accident. But who know's what was on his mind at the time.

And his doctors are probably at fault some how for mixing all those prescriptions.


For those asking about the meds....Ambien was one and some anti-depressants....wanna say Xanax but i dont think that's it.

When you are a drug addict who goes to doctors in many countries you can acquire a dangerous number of pills.

He had MANY doctors.
