We’ve been hoping for a long time that Britney Spears parents or legal team would somehow figure out a way to put Sam Lutfi behind bars. There was a report from OK Magazine last year that the LAPD’s Major Crimes Division was investigating Lutfi after he admitted to Lynne Spears that he continuously drugged Britney.
They did manage to get a restraining order against him based on the drugging and an epically long list of other things he did to control and isolate Britney. But nothing came from that story about the LAPD investigation, and it seems that Jamie Spears is finally ready to put Lutfi behind bars, since the Svengali has recently reappeared in Britney’s life.
Britney Spears‘ dad is reportedly working himself up for Round Three of his new fight against her former BFF Sam Lutfi.
Sam was banned from seeing Britney after her dad Jamie Spears was gained a control order over the star last February. Sam, who claimed he was Britney’s manager, initially accepted the restraining order but towards the end of last year, began making claims that Britney was unhappy with the conservatorship and he was trying to “free her”.
Last Friday, Jamie filed a request for a new restraining order against Lutfi and against Britney’s ex-boyfriend Adnan Ghalib, claiming they were attempting to disrupt her recovery – and this week Jamie hit back, starting legal proceedings against Jamie and Britney’s mum Lynne Spears, suing them for ongoing defamation, battery and breach of contract.
Now according to the Sun, Jamie is looking to pursue a charge against Lutfi for allegedly drugging Britney at the start of last year.
Lutfi is said to have given Britney drugs without her knowledge before her hospitalisation at the end of January last year. According to Lynne Spears, Sam admitted he “grinds up Britney’s pills .. [and] puts them in her food”, to sedate her some of the time and to make her “happy and fun” at other times.
A source told the newspaper that Jamie has held back from pursuing the charges thus far because of Sam’s cooperation but is now “determined to pursue a criminal prosecution”.
“Jamie also believes Sam tried to take control of her life and finances.”
A source close to Lutfi added though: “Sam isn’t going down without a fight.”
What I will never understand is why Sam Lutfi feels he’s entitled to any part of Britney’s life. He won’t go down without a fight? Why does he think he has the right to fight to control someone who is not a family member, a spouse, or a child? The guy is completely mentally deranged. I understand why Britney’s family didn’t pursue charges against Sam in the first place – probably hoping that they could get him to stay away from her. But now is clearly the time to put this whack job behind bars.

He needs to be punished in every conceivable way possible, so he will know he can’t get away with this stuff. The Spears should countersue him (he’s currently suing them essentially for cutting off his access to Britney) and go after him on every civil and criminal charge they can think of. This creep could easily have led to Britney’s death if it wasn’t for her parents stepping in a year ago, and he should be held accountable.
