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.

People laughed and ridiculed him before the book ever came out. This guy is a greasy looser who can't get any work on his own, so wants to try to steal some more from Brittany. Hopefully a judge will throw this out as fast as it came in.

Wow, what a moron THIS guy is???

Guess this is the 21st century TERRORIST ay??

He reminds me of that kernal of popcorn that you get between your teeth that drives you absolutely mad!!

That mud on your shoes that makes your feet feel twenty pounds each!!

That burp that gets stuck in your chest on the way up!!!

I think you get where I'm goin with this... he's a worthless, annoying, little puttz. A cowardly, blood sucking leach with only a desire to take advantage of those around him. He should have been a suicide bomber alone in a padded room.

She needs to get away from all the predatory men, including her father (he is getting well paid, what kind of parent profits from saving their kid?) She needs to take a cue from Madonna and be stronger and independent and in charge.

Her lawyers should win this on Summary Judgment. Well they may try to milk the billable hours out of this but seriously CA has enough law re oral agreements to get this thrown out. Had this be in NY then maybe I can see the other way. This is assuming he is telling the truth re she agreed by oral agreement for managment services. Regardless I think its best all parties just walk away. I think re Britney people are beating a dead horse re these lawsuits and what not. I get she has money and everyone tries to bleed a well dry but she is not the only person walking with money my gawd go bleed out another brainless victim.

Summary Judgement:

I think you're right. However, Lynn Spears may have a problem if she put anything in her book that he can prove to be untrue. Hopefully, she didn't do that.

Sam is telling x 17 that he has a message from Brit on his cell phone with her saying he is her manager for the next 4 years. When she sent that it does not say. It is an interesting thought that x 17 has on why Sam is suing Jaimie but the judge in charge of Brit is just going to assign another person in charge of her. I doubt this even gets to court since she was deemed incapable of being able to handle her own affairs.

The Spears family can't seem to get rid of this guy. Looks like it's time for Jamie to call in a 'proactive' P.I.

Too bad Anthony Pellicano, a knife-fighting expert as I understand it, is in jail! I bet he'd get rid of Lutfi, or Lufti, or whatever the hell his name is! And Mr. 'landing-strip-chin' as well!

Just my two cents.

♥ ♥ ♥ It's clearly obvious that Lutfi is desperately scrambling to extend his 15 minutes of fame, and is fully willing to stoop to whatever means necessary to do so.

Britney has worked so hard to better herself and get her life back on track. The last thing she needs right now is more crap from this loser.

Get a life Sam. Quit trying to drain Britney. You are transparent as glass. Stop harassing her and her family. You are a freak.

THANK YOU FOR BEING NICE TO BRITNEY TMZ! YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME! ♥ ♥ ♥
