Jamie Spears

Pop icon Britney Spears has won a major legal victory in order to keep her former manager, Sam Lufti, away from her.

The news comes amid fears that he is behind a campaign of continuous harassment and even death threats against her family.

Yesterday, an LA judge granted Spears a temporary restraining order against Lutfi, meaning he is not allowed to contact the singer or her family.

Insiders from Page Six believe that Spears and her family are convinced Lufti is behind the recent #FreeBritney fan uproar. Her followers dislike the conservatorship which her father, Jamie, has over the singer.

“If you connect the dots, it all leads to Sam being all over this,” a source told the publication. “People have been sending death threats, and they suspect it’s the same folks behind #FreeBritney.”

Lutfi has allegedly been harassing those in Britney's inner circle since she checked out of a mental health facility two weeks ago. Apparently, he contacted Spears' mother Lynne to challenge the conservatorship by offering money.

The documents also claim that Lutfi posted “disparaging and threatening comments” on social media, and requested that the public 'raise hell' to free the star. Spears went into the facility following the news of her father's illness.

An insider added, “Sam is trying to insinuate himself into Britney’s life again. Her family worries he could have a dangerous impact on her mental health.” Court filings suggest that he has been threatening to release private documents of Britneys from her past.

The family are convinced that the former manager drugged her back in 2007, around the time of her head-shaving meltdown.

In a 2008 book, Spears’ mom wrote, Through the Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World, that Lutfi had been giving the singer Adderall in her food, which he strongly denied.

Lutfi's lawyer replied to the restraining order, saying; “We are disappointed in the results. We feel this is overly broad and violates Mr. Lutfi’s constitutional rights. We look forward to arguing the matter more fully at the hearing for a more permanent restraining order on May 28.”

Britney told her fans that she was taking some 'me-time' following Jamie's life-threatening illness, cancelling her Las Vegas show.

She checked into a mental health facility for a 30-day treatment in April, despite claims by fans that she was being held against her will. Protests ensued in Hollywood which demanded her release.

Britney took to Instagram and assured her followers that she was okay; "My family has been going through a lot of stress and anxiety lately so I just needed time to deal with it. Don’t worry, I’ll be back very soon."

Pop idol Britney Spears is clearing up rumours about her mental health and well-being on her social media, confirming: “All is well”.

37-year-old Toxic singer checked into a mental health facility earlier in April to cope with the stress of her father’s ongoing illness.

Rumours were swirling that there was more going on beneath the surface of Spears’ visit, but she shared a video on Instagram on April 23 to dispel the myth.

“Hi guys, just checking in with all of you who are concerned about me,” Britney said in the video, referring to her father Jamie, who she is very close with.

“My family has been going through a lot of stress and anxiety lately, so I just needed time to deal. But don’t worry, I’ll be back very soon,” she continued.

Her fans were deeply concerned about her treatment and suspected that her family had forced her to enter the facility.

Mental health has been known to play a big role in addiction as a whole. Brittany spears is a perfect example of this. She has finally understood that she cannot enter a drug rehab program without getting help with her mental health issues.

A group of protesters gathered outside City Hall on Monday in LA to demand her release from the facility after claims about her mental health went viral.

Britney’s caption disputes the “out of control” things which fans online have said, and even alluded to shocking death threats made to her family and team;

“I am trying to take a moment for myself, but everything that’s happening is just making it harder for me,” Britney wrote. “Don’t believe everything you read and hear.”

She wrote a detailed and emotional Instagram post about her dad’s health back in early January;

“A couple of months ago, my father was hospitalised and almost died. We’re all so grateful that he came out of it alive, but he still has a long road ahead of him. I had to make the difficult decision to put my full focus and energy on my family at this time.”

Britney also spoke out against her former manager, Sam Lutfi, who she claimed wrote fake emails in her name to communicate with her team; “My situation is unique, but I promise I’m doing what’s best at this moment,” she said.

“You may not know this about me, but I am strong, and stand up for what I want!” Britney continued in the social media video.

“Your love and dedication is amazing, but what I need right now is a little bit of privacy to deal with all the hard things that life is throwing my way. If you could do that, I would be forever grateful.”

We wish her well and hope her father makes a speedy and full recovery. We need Brit back to her best.

Superstar Britney Spears remains one of the world’s most successful musicians – but it was all looking remarkably bleaker in 2007.

Indeed, back then the 33-year-old was in the midst of a mental breakdown, and her family feared for her life.

In the immediate aftermath of her emergency psychiatric treatment, her father Jamie went to court seeking conservatorship of her personal and financial affairs – something which was quickly granted to him.

And now TMZ is reporting that after seven-and-a-half years that set-up will continue indefinitely – and very possibly forever.

However, the media outlet explains that “no one involved is complaining”.  It adds: “The conservatorships have worked remarkably well”.

At one stage, it looked highly likely that Ms Spears, who shot to global fame aged 16, would permanently lose custody of her two sons.

In early 2008, there was a tense stand-off at her home: an emotional Britney refused to hand over her children to her ex-husband Kevin Federline's representatives. He was later given sole physical and legal custody of Jayden James, nine, and Sean, eight.

At the time, Britney only had visitation rights to her children – a right which was then provisionally revoked in light of her mental state.

 “Britney's doctors have stabilised her to the point she can successfully work and maintain a personal life,” TMZ says.

Britney has a team of lawyers and doctors, along with Jamie Spears, managing the conservatorship, but reportedly has “substantial day-to-day freedom” to make her own decisions.

In late 2013, Ms Spears began a two-year residency show Britney: Piece Of Me at The AXIS at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. She is currently paid around €425,000 per performance. 

Last year alone the conservatorship raked in €12.75m; but that’s only a portion of Britney's financial machine and doesn't include substantial commercial deals.
