Britney Spears granted Wednesday temporary restraining order against her former manager Sam Lutfi, who has been for decade in legal fights with her family.
The 44-year-old man is ordered by court to stay more than 200 yards away from Spears, her parents and her two sons too. He is bared to contact or disparage any member of the family.
Court documents reveal the former manager had earlier sent threatening text messages to her family and even leaked confidential information. It is learned he may release more of Spears’ actual and fabricated information.
Accused of posting negative comments about the star on social media platforms, Lufti encouraged other online contacts to spread misinformation about Spears and her team.
His Twitter account is flooded with messages related to #FreeBritney movement.
Meanwhile, Lufti’s attorney Marc Ganis released a statement saying, “We are disappointed at the outcome… I think it is overly broad and violates Mr. Lufti’s constitutional rights.”
Another court hearing is scheduled for the matter on May 28 and hence the order is just temporary and Gain is looking toward to coming back.
Spears family has long legal history with the man who claims to be her manager. Suit filed reveals Lufti had been falsely claiming to be her manager.
In 2009 Lufti had filed a suit against Spears’ mother alleging she defamed him in her 2008 book titled “Through The Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World.”
