Lutfi, Ghalib Claimed They Had Britney Secrets

1/30/2009 9:11 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has just obtained declarations from Jamie Spears and others in the latest Britney Spears case -- Britney's lawyer says Sam Lutfi had inserted himself and tried peddling false and hurtful info about Jamie, Britney and others in her family.

Sam allegedly was calling lawyers saying that Britney wanted to hire her own lawyer, presumably to fight the conservatorship. Sources tell TMZ that is definitely not what Britney wanted.

Sam Lutfi & Britney Spears

As we first reported, the conservators for Britney Spears obtained a restraining order today against Sam Lutfi, Adnan Ghalib and attorney Jon Eardley. We're told Brit herself is furious at Lutfi and Ghalib and would like to see them jailed.

Here's the most interesting part....According to the legal papers, late last month Lutfi sent text messages to Brit's hairdresser, saying he wasn't responsible for the conservatorship. A week or so later, Britney received "instant messages from a person with the screen name ____....The person -- who posed as the mother of a daughter with autism -- made a number of utterly false and hurtful assertions concerning Mr. Spears and his family, threatening to go public with such purported 'information' unless Mr. Spears spoke with that person." Almost immediately after Brit got those messages, Lutfi began calling Jamie.

One of the lawyers in the case filed a declaration saying over the past month she received "multiple telephone calls and text messages from Lutfi." She says Lutfi wanted to set up an urgent meeting to "speak with Mr. Spears and me with regard to what he claimed was 'information he had received about Mr. Spears and his daughter, Britney Spears as well as others.'" The attorney also says Lutfi claimed "he had been talking with Adnan Ghalib about the conservatorship and Ms. Spears' status as a conservatee."

In another document, one of the conservatorship lawyers claims "Mr. Lutfi has sent text messages and instant messages that contain false and hurtful allegations concerning Mr. Spears, Ms. Spears, and the Spears family." The lawyer continues, "Mr. Lutfi, Adnan Ghalib, and Jon Eardley sought unsuccessfully to induce an attorney to file" false statements with the court.

The papers make it clear...."Over the past month, Ms. Spears has had numerous telephone conversations with both Mr. Lutfi and Mr. Ghalib and has exchanged numerous text messages with both of them." But we're told now Brit is so mad at them she wants them locked up.

Under the TRO, Lutfi, Ghalib and Eardley must stay 250 yards away from Britney, her parents and her kids. The TRO also prohibits the trio from "acting on Ms. Spears' behalf...inducing or assisting another person to file legal pleadings" on her behalf.

Interesting fun fact: In the petition for the TRO, it says Brit has been communicating with Adnan and that "Ms. Spears innocently informs Mr. Ghalib of her destinations and that he then arranges for paparazzi to meet and film her to his financial benefit."

Those two guys are slimy. If Britney were allowed to be around them, something awful would happen. People use celebrities, but these two don't even try to hide how rotten they are.

If her parents really love her (and not the money and fame) they would take their troubled daughter (s) out of hollywood and the entertainment business and return to a "normal" life. Just disappear and start a life somewhere else. I don't think either of their children will survive if they don't..... Isn't there someone in that family with a brain or a heart?

IT DOESN'T MATTER HOW LONG HER CONSERVATORSHIP LASTS, THE FIRST THING SHE'LL DO IS FIND ADNAN BECAUSE HE IS THE ONLY ONE THAT WILL HAVE HER. HER MINDLESS, STUPID DECISIONS HAVE NOT CHANGED.

the fact that people would exploit her or try to is insane but not suprising. what's even more suprising is there are still the immature little children who claim to not care but cared enough to leave a comment in the first place. grow up.

I worked as a psyche nurse, paralegal and patient rights advocate. As long as Britney is under a CONSERVATORSHIP she cannot regain her jount custody. If she gets out from under the conservatorship... she still has the "right" to share custody and in most states it goes like this. If a disabled person has enough support systems in place to ensure the care and safety of the children (parents, friends)... then she is entitled to regain JOINT CUSTODY. She needs to get out from under the conservatorship first. No one can argue that with all her millions she cannot pay for adequate support systems. We once argued the rights of a Schizophrenic single mother (AND WON!) Although disabled... she had a supportive family to supervise the care and maintain primary responsiblity for the children and she was able to regain the joint custody of the children. Just because a person is disabled... accomodations for the disability must be made as long as they are reasonable. She can still continue her dad under contract to manage her money and assets to protect her from opportunists that will exploit her.

Britney does not need these two low life in her life. They are the reason for her troubles in the first place. Wake up Britney and turn on the lights, so that you can see these two clowns for exactly what they are. You are far better than this and can really make a huge come back if you will leave these two alone.

I really do wish you all the best and hope that one day you will again be able to take back control of your own life and control of your two precious little men.

God be with you.

Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah!! She has gotten everything that she deserved. The one thing that she can never have is her children, and she traded them for her SOUL. She never put her kids first, it was always what Britany wanted and what man happened to be in her life at the time. So, we can all see what money can do to people.

"By the way, Britney now has close to 50/50 custody ......

and the trio has also worked out a long-term agreement, which would extend the arrangement. That, too, could be compromised. "

Just an FYI to person who stated that the custody issues can't be changed in any fashion until she's not under Dads control anymore....all these new updated custody/more nights/travel has all just been very recently .....site goes on to state that If Britney does take kids OTR,Kevin has ALOT to benefit from as well, read on.....

The plan is to have homes in three bases -- New Jersey, New Orleans and Los Angeles.
Sean Preston and Jayden James would stay in one of these three bases and mom would commute back and forth while doing concerts in each region.

Britney will also pay Kevin in excess of $4,000 a week for each week she's on tour.
The way the deal goes...
Brit would get K-Fed his own pad in each of the three bases and he wouldn't even have to show up to get the money!

Why, you ask, would she pay him? You figure it out....


... a week ago K-Fed's lawyers became aware of the plan and were furious, thinking Jamie went behind their backs. Sources tell us K-Fed's lawyers have said they object to the plan but won't specifically say why.

..... Kevin apparently doesn't have the cojones to stand up to his lawyers.

Mark Vincent Kaplan, K-Fed's lawyer, says neither he nor Kevin want to interfere with Brit's career.
..He says it could have been handled better if Jamie and company would have "manned up" and had Kevin got the benefit of his lawyers to protect his position.
Kaplan says he's going to present his own wording of the deal,
.... but thinks they'll work it out.

Beth Alison, the woman who came up with "Circus" for Spears    

People who like to blame Britney Spears for everything that go wrong in her life forget how women like her are often manipulated and abused by the people who surround her. Every woman is entitled to get a restraining order to protect themselves from perceived danger whether or not they are "mentally competent". The poor girl is just trying to express herself and deal with her fame while everyone around her tries to use her in some way to make a profit. Nothing Britney Spears does or has done gives people the right to subject her to the kind of sexist abuse so clearly perpetrated by the media and the men in her life. People ridicule Britney Spears for getting caught not wearing underwear. What's ridiculous about that is that photographers worked so hard to get a photo of that and that this poor girl had to be so publicly embarassed. When are people going to realize that Britney Spears is simply an innocent child who is being grossly exploited? It's really sad to me that people like to spend so much time judging and condemning Britney for simply being a vivacious, talented, and beautiful young woman... the most difficult role in society for a human being to portray. I say this... Go for it Britney... get restraining orders if you need it... fight for your rights... don't let this terrible world bring you down.
