Britney Spears' Lawyers

Sam Lutfi's A Drug Pusher

NOT Her Manager

Britney Spears
' lawyers will come out of the gate swinging in Sam Lutfi's lawsuit against her and her family ... calling BS on his argument that the singer was on drugs and he was trying to save her.

Sources connected with the case tell us ... lawyers for the conservatorship will scoff at Lutfi from the get-go, noting that he is suing her because he claims she signed a contract making him her manager. 

Their point -- how can someone deep into drugs be competent enough to sign any contract, and what's the point of signing a contract if she's too wasted to perform?

Lutfi claims Britney was on meth and other drugs and he worked 24/7 to rehab her, to no avail.  Lawyers for Britney and Lynne Spears will make the case that Sam was like a sleazy drug pusher and fame whore who fueled Britney with drugs to control her and isolate her from her friends and family.

Lufti should be grateful he didn't go to prison for what he was doing to that girl. And he's the only one that thinks he was her "manager". Get a job, Lufti.

He's nothing but a money-grubbing leech who is strangely obsessed with her.

We've always known that Sam was a sleeze ball, but that doesn't change the fact that she presented him as her manager for a period of time. I remember because they were always on TMZ. It's too bad she was mentally ill at the time, but hasn't she always been? I think they just need to pay this guy to go away.

I actually believe him. He doesn't have meth-face and Brit Brit does... big time. Obviously the family has a huge financial interest in discrediting this dude and keeping their little princess under their thumb. He probably won't get anything, but I hope he does.

Somebody needs to take this guy 'Sam Lufti' to a Roswell and, you know, disappear him.

Can't stand that so many celebrity parents blame everybody else for their childrens' drug problems.

It seemed like Britney was at her worse when this Lufti character was around. This will backfire in his ugly face.

Poor Brit-Brit was in the throes of some extremely serious mental illness when she was with Lufti. Major drugs would have blown the top of her bald head off. I suppose Lufti never saw what meth does to people? Meth is probably the most obvious drug around. Girlfriend was looking bad but there was no way she was a meth face. I hope this goes to court and I hope Lufti has to pay for all of his bullshlt and then some. She was so terribly ill when he was with her and he seriously didn't care.

really! really?    

I have no idea which of these two is in the wrong but I have a sneaking suspicion that once this case is resolved, Ms. Spears' conservatorship will end shortly thereafter.

Inconceivable!    

Britmey is well enough to judge the Xfactor, record albums, get engaged, and tour....but not competent to testify in court about what happened?! Sounds like she is hiding something to me!
