Britney's Ex-Friend Accused of Psychotic Stalking

9/10/2010 5:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sam Lutfi -- the infamous ex-friend of Britney Spears -- has just been slapped with a restraining order accusing him of nothing short of psychotic and extremely dangerous behavior.


Samuel Barth -- an aspiring actor/model -- claims Lutfi developed such an obsession toward him that he hacked into his email, Facebook and Twitter accounts and set out on a campaign to terrorize and vilify Barth's mother and other relatives.

Barth says he moved to L.A. From Virginia in January and rented an apartment near Lutfi, eventually moving in with him.  They became friends, but according to legal docs obtained by TMZ, Lutfi quickly became obsessed, first trying to diagnose Barth with "various mental and emotional problems and forcefully suggesting solutions" -- eerily similar to what Lutfi allegedly did to Britney Spears.

Barth tried to distance himself from Lutfi and that's when the alleged campaign of terror began.  Barth claims in his declaration Lutfi tried to drive a wedge between Barth and his mother, calling her "evil," a "bitch" and "Satan," among other things.  Lutfi sent emails and texts to Barth's mom, telling her how she "viciously destroyed" the lives of her kids.  Lutfi emailed Barth's underage sister (about the mom and aunt), "I wish those two sick women the most evil and painful death possible."  Again, similar to Sam trying to turn Britney against her mom and dad.

Lutfi also verbally attacked Barth's brother, calling him "a waste of human flesh" and a "f**kin' loser."

The judge granted the temporary restraining order today and, among other things, prohibited Lutfi from hacking into the various accounts of Barth and his family.

This guy is a ****ing psychopath, as a Britney fan, i never thought he was good for her!!! This guy has a long list of people he's tormented and gotten restraining orders from, why isn't he in jail, the **** he did to Britney alone, considering she's a public figure, should have been enough to lock him up for life!!!

It's easy to see how Britney got so manipulated and taken advantage of. Sam Lufti should be thrown in jail for what he did to her, and for what he tried to do to this new guy.

Why would he move in with this guy?? Methinks there are parts missing from this story.....

Sam Lutfi is psychotic trash and his fat slob sister, Christina, is NO better. This is his FIFTH restraining order that has been made public. Thank god Jamie Spears stepped in and stopped this monster from robbing Britney and finishing her off!

Lufti should have been kicked out of this country years ago. And I agree with post #7 BRET. If this idiot ever said anything bad about my mother or anyone else in my family, he'd be in the hospital quicker than you can say Britney Spears.

He drugged Britney and kept her stoned in order to live a life beyond his own personal means. Everyone close to her knows it So did the judge. It was basically proven, hence why he was ordered to stay away from her. Fortunately her Dad and Mom were able to get him banned. He should be in jail. Obviously there's a pattern here. Plus he's gay and was obsessed with this kid. And this kid probably initially put out because he thought Britney's "Ex-Manager" would launch his career, but once he realized he was going nowhere, he wanted to bail but Lufti was to into him at that point.

He's disgusting. He's also still completely obsessed with Britney. I'm surprised he hasn't killed someone yet.
