Fighting Sam Lutfi Is Really Really Expensive

2/10/2009 4:26 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Britney SpearsThe lawyers in Britney Spears' conservatorship case went to court this morning to ask the judge for... what else???? They want to hire more lawyers to defend Britney.

Brit's mouthpiece claims the singer needs two civil lawyers to defend her in Sam Lutfi's defamation case against Britney and her family. Here's the deal. The two lawyers will cost a grand total of $935 an hour. The judge gave the green light, so the Bank of Brit is fully open for business.

Spears is expected to keep the legal profession afloat during these hard economic times.

Wait!! defamation agianst Brit? Isn't it Lynn Spears that Sam is saying defamed him through her book? Why isn't Lynn the one paying for the lawyers?

Daddy Spears has no trouble spending Brit's money.

wtf    

What is Britney defending herself against? She didn't write that tell all book. We have never heard the name Sam leave Britney's mouth. Why does she need to pay all this money to defend herself?

Cool    

This crazy woman must lie in thebed she created for herself!! She left K-Fed because he wanted to pursue a rap career and not follow her around like a puppy dog. Now she must pay the price for mixing up with the likes of Adnan and Lufti. She is a paparrazi slut who deserves what she gets!!

Agree wholeheartedly with no. 7. This family is doomed. You play with fire, you get burned. It'll take alot of dough to straighten out the life she made for herself. Hopefully her boys will end up happy as adults. Someone has to break the chain.

This is complete bull****. This young woman has no obligation to pay the laywer to defent her mother or father. Her only obligation is to pay for the lawyers to protect herself. I'll bet that the majority of those legal fees will go to defend her mother. Those parents need a good swat--like bad children!

Party 'till you die!    

Her life will always be filled with self caused drama and trauma! I don't feel an ounce of sympathy for people like her who will never learn or own up to their mistakes! She will continue to repeat the same mistakes and expect different outcomes. That is one of the definitions of insanity.

jaye    

That's a damn shame. This isn't a murder trial with Britney as the dependent, why the hell should attorneys cost that much? They're going to suck as much money as they can out of her.
