Sam Has NOT Been Served

2/7/2008 3:37 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Sam LutfiTMZ has confirmed that Sam Lutfi has not been served with the restraining order sought by Brit's parents-- yet.

If he comes in contact with Britney, it technically wouldn't violate the restraining order issued against him -- since he hasn't officially been given notice.

It's a technicality, yes, but Sam could argue he doesn't know about the TRO since he hasn't even seen it.

Of course, he'd also have to prove he doesn't use the Internet ... or read the newspapers ... or watch TV or ...

This clown is exactly the same as Howard K. Stern and hopefully the courts will be successful in assisting Spears. This Lutfi arab POS is danerous to her obviously and (and I can't believe I am saying this) hopefully, Spears parents will be successful in turning this leech off.

He can keep dodging if he wants too; however, the restraining order is very real and in effect. All his playing is just gonna cost him in the long run - idiot.

How Lutfi connected with Spears in the first place isn't clear.

Brandy Navarre, co-owner of celebrity photo agency and Web site X17, told the AP that Lutfi contacted the agency about nine or 10 months ago - after her head-shaving incident and others - about telling Spears' side of the story.

Since then, X17 photographers have cultivated a close relationship with both Spears and Lutfi, whom they have photographed together numerous times. Lutfi communicates with X17 by text messages, instant messages and e-mail regularly, and has had long conversations with Navarre, she said.

Navarre said she never asked him how he and Spears met. Still, "I think I've always had a positive feeling of him," Navarre said. "He seems to have Britney's best interest in mind."

In the order against Lutfi, Lynne Spears says her daughter met him in October 2007, and that he "essentially moved into Britney's home and has purported to take control of her life, home and finances." She describes witnessing a situation of tight control and manipulation, with Lutfi calling the shots on her medications, cutting her phone lines, and deciding who's let in to see the pop star.

wiggin' too    

I too demand more dirt on Lutfi albeit I would add Howard Grossman. Some mention of unpaid dancers on Ripoff.com but not sure if it is THE Howard Grossman responsible for $120 million Spears' fortune per Forbes in 2007 dwindled away to only $40 million and [owned] by Sam.

TMZ, with your insiders, I bet you could chase $80 misssing million faster than the conservators who might only have a week left BTW. Sam has bragged he makes more than most American CEO's but collects nothing from Brit or Paps.

Also to the bigots: YOU ARE NOT HELPING! I understand "patriot" Lutfi is first generation American unlike multi-gen American John Walker who took off like a nut to aid the Taliban (his parents should probably reach out to Spears about now.) This is affecting my blood pressure and I have never even owned one of Britney's CD's...but I do hum "Oops" at work a lot.

You might want to check in the caves of Afghanastan for Sam, he's probably hiding out there with Obama Bin Laden!!!
HOW HARD IS IT TO SERVE THIS IDIOT??????
WHAT KIND OF A POLICE FORCE DO WE HAVE? ONE MINUTE YOU CAN'T READ ANYTHING WHERE HIS UGLY FACE IS PLASTERED EVERYWHERE, AND THE NEXT MINUTE NO ONE CAN SEEM TO FIND HIM.
AMERICA CAN BE EMBARASSING AT TIMES.

Just a thought for Papa Spears: GET TMZ AS A WITNESS!
I'm sure Sam commented on this a few days ago - pretty sure to TMZ. Hey TMZ, can you go and become a witness for them?

Otheriwse, why don't they get a few guys to camp outside his house. And if he doesn't ever come out of the house to avoid them - none of us will miss him. So the family will be doing the whole world a favour!!!!!

Sam the CREEP! Come on by now Britney knows that this creep broke into (or walked right into her house after he unlocked the door with the key she gave him) and made off with lots of Britney's valuables. The motive for this crime is there, because that would be the last time he will ever be allowed in Britney's house.

House, House, which House. Did Britney just buy another house?
