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.

$935 an hour for legal representation is just downright ridiculous. That firm likely laughs all the wey to the Bank of Brit. For what she has paid to her attorneys over the years, one would think the judge would have found that outrageous!

Reminds me of our government, crooks, all of them (98%), bloodsuckers. This isn't good for Brit, she's going to feel like she's deeper into a hole and has to keep working to pay for all these bloodsuckers when she probably wants to relax and be a mom to her boys. Lufti, no court case is going to change public opinion of you, but, of course, it's about the money, you leech. If you really cared about Britney, you wouldn't have brought up this stupid lawsuit. Too bad Britney couldn't file for bankruptcy and then watch all these leeches disappear and go suck up someone else's money.

Brit is the bank, when the family got hold of it (bank) they ran with it......the courts don't care as long as they say she still needs help the court goes with it...........younger Hollywood needs to pay attention to this, keep your wits about you at all times, keep family out of the loop cause if they're anything like the Spears bottom feeders, you to could be just an ATM for them. one of the so called family I'm looked at is Lohan, he's a real trouble maker.
Brit will be forever controlled by the "family" unless she just stops being the Bank of Britney by retiring and letting the money run out........they will have nothing in no time, cause they live off her.

THIS IS A DISGRACE!!!! THESE PEOPLE (CREEPS) ARE TOTALLY TAKING ADVANTAGE OF HER. THE JUDGE NEEDS TO TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT WHAT'S REALLY HAPPENING AND STOP THIS WHOLE CIRCUS, UNLESS HE'S BUDDIES WITH THE LAWYERS, THEN IT'S A MOOT POINT. WILL SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP THIS POOR GIRL?

Serves her right. She picks KFed for a husband--he divorces her and claws as much money out of her as he can. She picks Adnan as a lover--he tries to peddle a sex tape they made and get as much money out of the relationship as he can. She picks Lufti as a manager--he sues her for as much money as he can. See the pattern? SHE MAKES THESE CHOICES. The only reason any rational person would want to be around the selfish bit*h is to get money. She's a grease fire and it's going to be like this the rest of her life. Look at any photo of Brit that is out there: the people in her immediate vicinity are PAID to be there.

STFU TMZ YOU ARE IDIOTS    

Ahh a low life that's more of a low life than chris brown. Or is he? this guy never beat brit, but he drugged her and manipulated her at her sickest. I think i'd rather have someone beat the hell out of me and walk away than stay and drink my money dry and make me think i'm ok while drugging me. How about y'all?
