Lynne Spears

Don't Let Sam Lutfi Say

I Hate Jews

10/17/2012 12:11 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Britney Spears' mom is afraid Sam Lutfi will paint her an anti-Semite during their imminent trial  -- so she just got an order blocking him from making Jew-hating allegations ... TMZ has learned.

The order stems from Lynne Spears calling Sam Lutfi a "Svengali" in her book -- a name used to describe a person who controls others through deceitful means.

But the word arguably has anti-Semitic roots as well, referring to the "Wandering Jew" character in Christian mythology.

Lynne was afraid Sam -- who is Jewish -- would run with the "Svengali" reference and use it to label her an anti-Semite during the defamation trial -- by calling an expert witness to testify about the anti-Semitic roots of the word.

Lynne filed papers asking the court to block Sam from calling such an expert witness -- and the judge signed off because it's not relevant and ridiculously prejudicial.

The case is currently mired in jury selection.

I don't get this. Do people from Louisianna think that Jews and Muslims are the same thing then? Are they all just those colored people from the mideast who you can't insult? This is going to be a wacky trial.

This Lutfi is now hanging around Courtney Love, another loose cannon flaky person in Hollywood. He calls her just his friend like he did Britney, but now she has fired all of her other staff and managers and just has him around as a drug consultant.

He used to be a private investigator. He is a sneaky guy. I don't see why Jews have to be dragged into this whole drama either.
