Britney Spears
just taught a hard lesson to two dudes who have been dogging her -- a judge has ordered them to pay her a fortune in legal fees.

A judge just ordered Britney's ex-manager, Sam Lutfi to pay Britney's estate (she's under a conservatorship) $92,845 in attorneys fees.  You may recall, Britney's lawyers got a restraining order against Lutfi who has been like a bad meal that just doesn't go away.  Now Lutfi must foot the bill for Britney's hired guns.

Ditto attorney Jon Eardley, who claimed to represent Britney in an attempt to unhinge the conservatorship.  Britney's lawyers say Eardley never repped Brit and they got a restraining order against him as well.  Eardley must now pay Britney's estate $98,585.

Good for her, time this opportunist whack job stops clinging on to her and harassing her, extorting her for money. Kick rocks Lutfi.

I prefer these fights between lawyers, and least then i know that the lawyer doesn't always win.

Seems that since Jason has been with her she's getting better and better. She just needed someone to trust, her father and Jason. No wonder she was a mess with people like Lutfi around.
This is what Lindsay needs but will probably never have.

I often look at Britney and feel so sorry for her. She might be stupidly rich and famous, but does she have anyone around that really gives two damns? Maybe her father, but is there anyone else? Her mother obviously didn't. She watched her daughter meltdown and didn't lift a finger except to get her nails done...

Lufti, at the very least, should've been charged for drugging her.

Fun Fact: Sam Lufti has now latched onto Courtney Love. (check her Twitter)
Courtney will be dead in 2 years.

How does Osama Lufti earn is living? Does he pay taxes in this country? Every time I reed a story about this creep he is either shaking down someone for money or someone has just taken out another restraining order on him. Seems like an unstable and evil individual. I think it is time Lufti gets deported from the US

One day we will wake up to hear this dude a been found in a ditch and everyone will haveoldsmobile laugh. She has really turned her life around. Of course untold millions always helps, but she could have easily lost it all. There is always a price for ame ad he paid dearly.

Good for her. I sure hope Lufti is as down on his luck as a person can get. He and his type, and all the paparazzi, just about destroyed the girl. Glad to see that Ms. Spears is doing so well, she really seems to be back on track. Girl has looked phenomenal over the past several weeks. Good to see her smile and be able to believe that it's genuine. X-Factor has been a good thing for her. Keep on proving your detractors wrong Britney. You the girl !!!
