restraining order

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."

Mel B's new temporary restraining order against ex Stephen Belafonte has been granted.

The two, who are parents to Madison Brown Belafonte, finalised their divorce in December 2017. However, they still have upcoming legal proceedings.

Now, with this new restraining order, Stephen has been ordered to stay at least 100 yards away from the mum-of-three until the hearing next month, according to court documents obtained by The Blast.

The restraining order does not, however, extend to Stephen's contact with the Spice Girl's daughters.

As well, he is not allowed to record any communication between himself and his ex-wife.

Mel B reportedly sought this order after an incident at their home on May 25 in which the police were called and she says Stephen's 'aggression became so hostile and so severe that the police handcuffed him'.

According to the Metro, Stephen claims that he was only handcuffed because the police were falsely told at the time that Mel B had a restraining order against him.


Blac Chyna has sought legal action against Rob Kardashian in the form of a restraining order. 

The model and mother-of-two is standing up against her ex-partner after he released nude images of her without consent. 

Chyna has hired celebrity lawyer Lisa Bloom to seek revenge porn charges and to 'stand up for her rights as a woman. 

The esteemed lawyer released a powerful statement regarding the issue to Twitter: 

'I am very proud to represent Blac Chyna as she stands up for her rights as a woman and as a mother against her ex Rob Kardashian.' 

'Mr Kardashian, you are now on notice: revenge porn is illegal.'

'Cyber bullying your ex is harassment.'


A post shared by Blac Chyna (@blacchyna) on

'Chyna ended your relationship months ago and she has the right to live as she chooses, work as she chooses, dress as she chooses, date who she chooses and be intimate with who she chooses.'

'Chyna and I both believe that this is an important women's rights issue, as too many women and girls have been slut shames by exs.' 

'It stops now. Your attempts to shame and control her are hereby rejected.'

'Her body, her choice. Her life, her choice. Back off.' 

Chyna's lawyer will appear in court on Monday to defend her client.

The model testified in court on Thursday, with the judge ruling that the restraining order remain in place for five years, according to TMZ. 

She has been attempting to secure the order for months.

According to TMZ, one such text read 'B**** I will beat the s**t out of you' and 'I promise you I will make your life hell.'

He also requested that she return some gifts he had given her during the relationship. 

Brown did not attend the hearing. 

The singer was previously arrested in 2009 for attacking then girlfriend Rihanna.



An American judge has ordered Chris Brown to abstain from contacting his ex-girlfriend, as he has been allegedly threatening her for months.

The singer was told to stay at least 100 yards away from Karrueche Tran and not attempt to contact her in person or via phone or Internet.

The judge also ordered Chris to surrender his firearms until his court hearing on March 9, where a restraining order will be confirmed and put in place.

According to TMZ, the Kiss Kiss singer has repeatedly threatened his ex-girlfriend since December through various messaging apps and friends.

Chris previously had a restraining order put in place by his ex-girlfriend, Rihanna, after he physically assaulted her before the 2009 Grammy Awards.



The Mean Girls star has been granted a restraining order against the 37-year old German native who had been obsessively stalking her.

Daniel Vorderwulbecke left Lindsay, 28, ‘constantly looking over her shoulder’, and was banned from approaching the actress, but when she failed to return from the U.S to give evidence against him in court, he was not charged with stalking the celebrity.

At Westminster Magistrates Court yesterday Vorderwulbecke was banned from contacting Lindsay directly or indirectly, in person or by electronic means.

The District Judge Ikram said, “These offences are particularly serious. They are serious because of their nature but also because of the frequency of contact and the nature of the contact.”

The DJ has previously been convicted of harassing the manager of the Chiltern Firehouse, a celebrity haunt in London which Lindsay reportedly often visits.

While there he claimed the manager was preventing him from seeing his ‘wife’ and made various threats of revenge when he was barred from the restaurant.

He had also been convicted of criminal damage when he smashed a cigarette bin outside the Playhouse Theatre in London where Lindsay was performing in September of last year.

The judge has imposed a 12-month mental health treatment order as well as a restraining order which will not allow the man to contact either Lindsay or the staff of the Chiltern Firehouse.

Vorderwelbecke has previously delivered a number of strange ‘gifts’ to the star which included a loaf of bread, a tampon and a fake marriage certificate.

He is currently being held at a psychiatric hospital but has also been bombarding the star with abusive messages, one of which read “I’ll get you, wherever you are”.

While he had been charged with stalking Lindsay, her failure to show up in court and provide evidence meant that the stalking charges were dropped.

This isn’t Lindsay’s first experience in dealing with the law, her legal issues have been well documented by the press. Just recently her lawyer had to explain why she had only completed 10 hours of the 125 hours community service she has been tasked with.



Springbreakers star Vanessa Hudgens has been awarded a restraining order against a man who has been stalking and harassing her.

The twenty-five-year-old actress has been the victim of numerous emails from an individual named Junior Kabongo, who makes no secret of his desire to begin a relationship with the young actress. Kabongo has repeatedly contacted Vanessa declaring his love and intention to marry the star.

He even claimed that he planned to leave his native Africa in a bid to track her down and shockingly, was spotted on two different occasions earlier this month searching for the actress’s home on the street on which she lives in Los Angeles.

That latest shocking development, along with emails which have reportedly become more graphic and frightening, led Vanessa to seek legal advice.

Luckily, an L.A judge has deemed the man's behaviour obsessive and dangerous and ordered him to stay at least one hundred yards away from Vanessa, her boyfriend and her sister at all times.

We hope the former High School Musical star can move on from the terrifying ordeal.




Lindsay Lohan has found herself at the centre of a real life courtroom drama.

The actress has been slapped with a restraining order preventing her and her brother, Michael, from working on their virtual closet app Vigme.

As we reported yesterday, the Mean Girls star and her brother had been accused of stealing tech developer Fima Potik’s app Spotted Friend, and were being sued for $60 million as a result.

Now, after the first stage of the court case, Lindsay and Michael have been temporarily ordered to cease launching, promoting or marketing their app.

According to Page Six, Potik is pleased with the case’s progress so far, with his lawyers saying: “This significant victory helps ensure that the Lohans will not profit from their illegal conduct at Spotted Friend’s expense.”

Lindsay and Michael were initially invited to collaborate on and help promote Spotted Friend, but after talks on their ownership share fell through, the pair went on to launch Vigme themselves.

Essentially an app that shows you what your favourite celebrities are wearing and how to purchase them, Vigme and Spotted Friend are uncannily similar products.

We'll keep you posted on the outcome of the case.



Miley Cyrus has been left terrified after an obsessed fan was arrested outside her home.

The Wrecking Ball singer has been granted a temporary restraining order against the man – who thinks Miley is communicating with him through her songs.

An LA judge granted Miley the stay-away order against 24-year-old Devon Meek, after he was arrested by police outside her house, as he tried to get close to the singer.

According to court documents, “Meek, who we are informed and believe suffers from delusions about Ms. Cyrus, believes that the singer/actress/celebrity Ms. Cyrus communicates with him through her songs and is telling him to come to see her so that they may be together.”

The man is currently in a psychiatric hospital but has reportedly said he will keep trying to get to Miley once he is released.

A detective wrote in a statement that Meek told officers they should shoot him in the head if he could not meet the pop star.



America’s sweetheart Taylor Swift has filed a restraining order against a man who has been stalking her for a number of years.

The obsessed fan has reportedly been harassing the Everything Has Changed singer since 2011.

Timothy Sweet, the stalker identified in court documents obtained by TMZ, has been bombarding Taylor with emails, tweets and letters.

Messages have included: “My wife, Taylor Swift (Sweet) and I live in Beverly Hills. I am in love with her. In conclusion, we treat each other with dignity and respect. I will carry a gun to protect her the rest of my life.”

More worrying though, was the following message: “If anyone in Taylor Swift’s family gets killed, it is not my fault.”

Sounds like a very scary veiled threat to us.

Poor Taylor must have been so frightened, but a judge has ordered the man to stay 100 yards away from the singer and three specific family members.
