Britney Spears is looking forward to the future, but she can’t escape her ugly past and claims her ex-manager began harassing her, and her mother, days after she checked out of the mental health facility.
Spears’ attorney is filing documents on her behalf Tuesday in Los Angeles, seeking a temporary restraining order against Sam Lutfi.
Along with herself, Britney is asking that her father, mother and two sons are protected.
According to the documents, they claim Lutfi has been sending harassing and threatening texts and tweets to Britney and her family.
They claim Lutfi’s actions have caused “severe mental trauma” while interfering with her life.
Spears’ legal team claims Lutfi is trying to disrupt Britney’s conservatorship through calls for “vigilante action, bribes and release of private information.” They claim his actions are problematic for Britney’s safety and well-being, and make it clear they need him kept away to “prevent future harm and further psychological trauma.”
They don’t accuse him outright, but it appears Spears’ team is implying Lutfi is involved in the #FreeBritney movement.
The documents claim Lutfi sent Britney’s mom, Lynne, an “unhinged” text on April 29 accusing her of not being involved in the conservatorship and claiming Britney’s life was out of control.
Britney was only out of treatment four days after finishing her program on April 25.
According to the message to Lynne, Sam wrote, “You are the one that’s been breaking your back for your children your entire life and yet you are still having to answer to people that have done nothing for your family yet they are in charge.”
He also said, “You need to stop allowing anyone to treat you poorly. Lou lives like a queen and does what she wants. You how how poorly she speaks about you behind your back,” adding, “I want to just be able to provide you all the resources that you’ll need for this transition if that is the plan. Everything from counsel to $.”
He tried to send Lynne $1,000 to get involved, but she refused the payment.
Interestingly enough, days later Lynne filed her own documents asking to be included in the conservatorship case.
The documents claim Lutfi has threatened to release “trunks” of photos and other damaging material he collected when he worked with Britney.
Lutfi was Britney’s manager in the early 2000’s, and her family holds him responsible for her mental downfall in 2008.
He later sued Britney’s parents after Lynne accused him of being the “gatekeeper” and contributing to Britney’s illness, and the two parties settled for an undisclosed amount.
The Blast broke the story, Britney’s mother plans on attending her conservatorship hearing on Friday and wants to be kept informed of everything going on with her daughter’s care.
