Britney Spears’s restraining order against one-time pal Sam Lutfi may have been temporary, but their friendship is permanently over.
The pop star’s court-appointed attorney, Samuel D. Ingham III, told the Associated Press that he will not seek to extend the restraining order in court on Thursday â€” because Spears has cut all ties with Lutfi anyway.
“Britney has made clear to everyone,” Ingham said, “that she does not want to be further harassed or contacted in any way by Osama ‘Sam’ Lutfi, now or at anytime in the future.”
Lutfi has been out of Spears’s life since February, when her father, Jamie, was granted legal control of her affairs as temporary conservator. (At the time, Britney’s mother, Lynne, accused Lutfi of drugging the singer.)
Lutfi, it seems, will abide by the Spears family’s wishes. He said in his own statement to the AP, “Mr. Lutfi and Mr. Spears have mutually agreed in private that no hearing or order is necessary at this time.”
Ingham added that once Britney regains control of her life, she will continue to keep Lutfi out of it.
I am still stunned that Sam is as shady as he is!! Isn’t it amazing? You’re working for a successful, wealthy, world icon and you mistreat her? Thank god Brit Brit’s papa stepped in to save his daughter. Ever since Papa Spears showed up, things have been getting so much better for Britney. Thankfully.
