Sam Lutfi sues Britney Spears for not letting him take advantage of her

samsvengaliheader

Last week, Britney Spears had to get a restraining order against former “manager”/ Svengali Sam Lutfi and former boyfriend/paparazzo Adnan Ghalib. Lutfi had been harassing Britney as well as her friends and family, and both he and Adnan were trying to file legal documents on Spears’ behalf.

Instead of just listening to the court order and not being a complete psychopath, Lutfi responded today with a lawsuit against Britney – though most of the complaints have to do with her parents.

Sam Lutfi has filed a lawsuit against Britney Spears and her parents for libel, defamation, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress and breach of contract.

According to the papers, Sam claims Jamie and Lynn “launched a campaign of lies and intimidation designed to destroy Lutfi and drive him out of Britney’s life.”

In the lawsuit, Sam claims he was standing in Britney’s kitchen on January 29, 2008 when Jamie stormed into the house. Lutfi alleges Jamie yelled at him, claiming Sam made a rude comment to Lynne the night before. Then, Sam claims, Jamie “intentionally punched him in the chest” and threatened to kill him if he ever heard Sam make a rude comment about Lynne or any member of the Spears family again.

All the claims of libel and defamation spring from Lynne’s book, “Through the Storm.” Lutfi says since the publication of the book, he “has been subjected to unfathomable amounts of ridicule and public scorn.”

Lutfi also claims Britney broke a contract with him and owes him unpaid management fees. He claims he had an oral agreement with Spears to be her manager for four years, earning 15% commission.

So this is basically an “I’m an asshole but I don’t like being called an asshole or people reacting to my assholish actions, so I’m going to sue you for it” lawsuit. Good for Jamie Spears for punching Lutfi. This may be the first time I’ve ever condoned violence. But frankly, considering the terrible things Lutfi did to Britney (he admitted to Lynne that he often drugged her, amongst other things), Jamie Spears reacting that way shows that he’s a good father. He and Lynne aren’t married anymore but they clearly have a very good relationship.

I’m sure this will all be thrown out in court since Lutfi is nothing more than a narcissistic, deranged sociopath. But this guy really needs to be in jail. I’m guessing the only reason the Spears family didn’t pursue charges against him last year was that it probably would have been too much for Britney to go through, considering her fragile mental state at the time. I really hope that something can be done to keep him out of their lives altogether, and hold him responsible for the atrocious things he did to Britney.

    Lufti is only interested in sabotaging her career now. Get rid of this bloke.

    I love that title!

  4. HEB says:

    Nothing Lynne Spears could say would defame Lutfi any more than the psychotic behavior of Britney Spears while she was with him. He has no case.

  5. boomchakaboom says:

    God, what a clueless jerk. Sociopath or psychopath? I love me some Jamie Spears. That man was just what was needed in Britney’s life. Apparently, cojones are completely lacking on Lynne’s side of the parental unit. Nothing’s quite so formidable as a daddy protecting his little girl. Those guys will flat out kick your ass. Welcome to the Southern way of handling assholes trying to take advantage of somebody’s daughtr, Sam

  6. lbltpsms says:

    Well he screwed himself over with that breach of contract stuff…any contract that within the terms of the agreement cannot be completed within on year (and four years of management obviously can’t be completed within one year) must be in writing…aka you can’t have an oral agreement for four years :)

  7. That’s so dumb, why is he even wasting his time?

  8. Mandy says:

    Hooray for Britney’s dad! I think he showed remarkable restraint, because if some guy was stealing from me, or drugging me, or abusing me or my family in any way, I think my dad would kill the bastard.

    Britney is a great example of why everyone needs a father figure. It’s not a coincidence that she began to associate with assholes like Lutfi and Adnan during a period of time when she was estranged from her dad, but has shown vast improvement since reestablishing a relationship with him.

  10. katyalia says:

    You guys think she has a relationship with him?

  11. czarina says:

    I really hope common sense prevails and this winds up costing Lufti a great deal of money with no benefit.
    Sadly, the court system can sometimes be incredibly unfair and nuisance suits like these DO get taken seriously. I truly hope that’s not the case this time.

  12. vdantev says:

    Court proceedings to protect him from a 14 year old GIRL? What a PUSSY.

  13. MsTriste says:

    Is there any way the lawyers can also be negatively affected by our crashing economy? Oh no wait, maybe that’s why these attorneys are filing actions like these – because they need the money.

  14. loldongs says:

    I must concur with those calling him out as a pussy.

    He’s a gigantic parasite and a coward.

  15. Sociopaths abound. Nobody’s going to take him seriously on that one.

  16. mel says:

    OMG he is so obsessed with Britney! Get a life you psycho!

    ^^ He needs a kick in the head.

  20. cheetahstripes says:

    There is actually a lawyer who would take this case? I hope he works pro bono.

  21. daisy424 says:

    Nothing screams ‘real man’ than drugging a mentally ill person to take control of their $$. Get a job loser.

    This little shit need a dose of Daisy424 discipline.
    I’d have that fat puss on the floor with my knee in his throat faster than he could say payday.

    I admire Brit’s parent’s restraint for going the legal route instead of kicking his ass.

  22. dr.grrl says:

    i wonder if this SL is motivated to persue legal action because AG may have gotten a pay out for the purported sex tape? ugh, just another day in the circus we call the CA judicial system.

    it’s too bad that the Spears family can’t just take a break from all of this and head back down South. is it me, or do they seem to ignore their child who is a teen mother for a hot mess adult?
