Lindsay Lohan's Reps

Think Sam Lutfi

is Harassing Her

12/17/2010 10:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ... Lindsay Lohan's people believe the person who has been harassing Lindsay through text messages and voicemail messages is none other than Sam Lutfi ... the dude who loomed large when Britney Spears was melting down.

As TMZ first reported, Lindsay has been receiving ominous messages from someone who claims to be watching her.  The concern is so great ... honchos from the Betty Ford Clinic are moving Lindsay to a more secure location.

You'll recall, Lutfi was Britney's sole confidant just before she was placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold.  Britney's family believed Lutfi was plying Brit with drugs and taking her down a path of destruction.  Britney's conservators eventually obtained a restraining order against Lutfi.

We've learned Lutfi has been in close contact recently with none other than Michael Lohan. In at least one text Lutfi sent to Lindsay, he falsely identifies himself as "Mike from TMZ" and warns her to distance herself from Dina Lohan. The phone number on the text goes right back to Lutfi.

TMZ spoke with Lutfi, who claims he didn't send the messages. He claims the people who rep Lindsay also repped Britney and they're out to get him. Lutfi claims Lindsay has called him in the past, though sources connected with Lindsay say she doesn't know Lutfi at all.

Sources tell TMZ Lindsay's people have been in touch with Sam, warning him to stay away from her ... or else.

What I struggle with is that people post comments detrimental to Lindsay without actually reading the story properly.

Dearest Susan, if the text messages have been indeed traced back to Sam Lutfi's phone number, then why hasn't the police been involved? Because; one, they have no idea where the messages are coming from, as stated in the story, and two; all this info is coming from only one source, Lindsay Lohan's "representatives". Got that? Not the police and not the courts. Now you can guzzle down all the Lohan Kool-aid you like, drink up and be happy, but please don't start criticizing those who don't. Thanks a bunch...

ah jb you can do a background check (and pay $)to find out who's phone number that is. When asked by TMZ Sam Lufti didn't deny that it wasn't his number just that he "didn't send the text" (which of course is bs)

THANK YOU for your common sense answer to this silly story. It's apparent, isn't it that no one has risen to the bait of any of the other Lindsay Lohan stories pumped out while she's in rehab - in other words, people no longer care about her "career," so what better way to put her back into the public eye than to generate a sympathy story? One that's unvalidated. You mean to tell me that Lindsay's security team wouldn't have gotten onto the phone IMMEDIATELY and told the "stalker" to beat it or else? Or a BT rep? The Lohans lie like rugs, and I believe this is just another of their many fabrications. GREAT way to earn some quick Christmas cash too. Merry Christmas, Dina or Mikey, job well done.

Oh come on. I'm calling BS on this story. How would Lohan know Lufti? Or Lufti get her private phone numbers? This is a great PR piece, btw, that will garner unsympathetic Lindsay much sympathy and also make the "source" (Dina? Michael?) some Christmas cash. Sheesh.

Lufti had a good thing going with Brit, until Britney's post conservatorship people got in the way. Could be that Lufti holds a grudge against those people, several a which have since attached themselves to Lindsay's camp.
