Jamie Spears

Good Riddance,

Sam Lutfi!!!

Britney Spears
' father Jamie is THRILLED after beating Brit's ex-manager Sam Lutfi in court -- but tells TMZ, the victory is bittersweet.

We just spoke to Jamie on the phone, and he tells us, he's pleased the judge tossed out Sam's defamation lawsuit against the Spears family -- before it went to jury -- but he expressed disappointment at not being able to take the stand and tell the "real" story. 

Jamie says it was painful to relive the darkest days of Britney's life -- when he thought Britney might actually die -- but no one took it harder than Brit's mom Lynne.

Jamie says Britney hasn't spoken to Lutfi in four or five years.

As we reported, an L.A. judge dismissed Lutfi's lawsuit against the Spears family yesterday for lack of evidence -- a lawsuit in which Lutfi claimed the Spears family defamed him, physically attacked him, and breached a management contract he had with Britney. 

As for Britney's conservatorship -- Jamie says he DOES foresee an end, but he's not sure when exactly.

And when it comes to "X Factor" -- Jamie says his daughter got off to a rough start because of nerves ... but she's gotten better and better every week.

Brittany Spears has to have the Best Dad in Hollywood. What is so great about him, is that to him it is not about money. Brittany needs to look at Lindsay and Jessica and realize how blessed she is.

Now that the Sam Lufti case is done and over (which we all know is why Jamie and his Attorney's would not end the Conservatorship) lets see if Jamie is willing to give up the power and money.In other words do what is right and push to end the Conservatoeship.

Lufti can go back to the gas station he worked at and ask for a manager's position.

I HAVE MIXED EMOTIONS about the judge's decision. I believe and, I disbelieve both sides. Britney, having shaved her head, is suspect. QUESTION: Does anyone recall the last time a CA. court sided against a celebrity??? Perhaps in years past, they did, but nowadays, no!
