Britney

Sued by Lutfi

Did She Really Fear Dad?

2/3/2009 5:17 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0203_lufti_spears_bn2-1Sam Lutfi has filed a lawsuit against Britney Spears and her parents, Jamie and Lynne, claiming they defamed him and also alleging Britney lived in fear of her father.

In his lawsuit filed today, Sam boldly claims, "Resentful of Lynne and afraid of Jamie's controlling, violent, and often unpredictable behavior, Britney began inquiring about obtaining restraining orders against Jamie and Lynne." It was under those circumstances that Sam met, and eventually worked for, Britney.

Sam goes on to accuse Jamie of physically assaulting him. He says he was standing in Britney's kitchen on January 29, 2008 when Jamie stormed into the house. Lutfi alleges Jamie yelled at him, claiming Sam made a rude comment to Lynne the night before. Then, Sam claims, Jamie "intentionally punched him in the chest" and threatened to kill him if he ever heard Sam make a rude comment about Lynne or any member of the Spears family again.

All the claims of libel and defamation spring from Lynne's book, "Through the Storm." Lutfi says since the publication of the book, he "has been subjected to unfathomable amounts of ridicule and public scorn."

Lutfi also claims Britney broke a contract with him and owes him unpaid management fees. He claims he had an oral agreement with Spears to be her manager for four years, earning 15% commission.

Last Friday, Britney got a restraining order against Lutfi and Adnan Ghalib, barring them from having any contact with her, her parents or her kids.

Hey you little worm. Just go away and stop trying to steal money from Ms. Spears. They are not going to settle and you will end up in court with nothing plus you will have to pay there lawyers fees.

Ugghhh!    

Good old Sam Lufti appears to be one dangerous guy. And a gold digger to boot. Why else was he around Britney Spears? It sure wasn't to make her "look good". Britney never looked worse than when she was with that controlling money grabbing Lufti. (Lutfi whatever!)

How about when Lufti called in on the radio? Or made comments about walking in on Spears while nude? How did he get away with the stuff he did? He was never her husband. He should stay away from her. Britney was clearly ill, and here was this guy controlling and STEALING both publicity and fame from this girl.

Sam Lufti can go to hell in my book!!! He's hanging on to Britney for any money he can get out of her. TERRIBLE!!!

I guess money does not buy everything does it.

Hey, I had an oral agreement for 15% too! Can I cash in? You'd think as her "manager" he wouldn't let her enter into oral agreements. Typically managers help their clients make sound business decisions and enter into written contracts in good faith. Sounds like Mr. Lutfi dropped the ball in managing his client when it came to HIS OWN contract. Makes you wonder how many other "agreements" he was responsible for orchestrating. He's not very good at being a manager by his own account, does he really think a stupid little hillbilly book that no one read is the source of his problems? Go back to managing your family's gas station.

This creep is insane and if not for the Spears family stepping in she most likely would be dead by now. He's tried every way possible to get her back into his clutches but since that became impossible he's decided to sue. The Lutfi's and Howard K. Sterns of the world are nothing but dangerous parasites who destroy sick women to get to their money.
