Britney Spears Probably Would Have Preferred It If Sam Lutfi’s Case Had Been Thrown Out A Bit Earlier

Sam Lutfi's case against Britney Spears' family thrown out by judge.

We’re sure Britney Spears‘ parents, Jamie and Lynne Spears, are breathing a big sigh of relief after Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Suzanne Bruguera threw out Sam Lutfi’s lawsuit against them yesterday. But if we were Britney, we’d also be hopping mad at the judge for waiting until now to decide there was insufficient evidence. You know AFTER Lutfi had thrown out all these allegations about his former client/girlfriend and her parents. Because as we all know, even if an allegation turns out to be false or unfounded, once it’s out there, it sticks. So now we will forever suspect that maybe Britney shaved her head because she was scared of a drug test, and possibly his drug-sniffing dogs found crystal meth in her house, and that entire downward spiral of 2007 was still the result of her breakup with Justin Timberlake (and that one was from Lynne’s lawyer!).

Those are just the sorts of things you want people talking about when you’ve finally gotten back on your feet, you’re engaged to a pretty normal guy and you’re doing a bang-up job convincing people of your smarts and sanity on live national television every week and your kids are starting to reach an age where they can understand that mommy’s in the news. Gee, thanks a lot, Judge.

OK, we might just be projecting there. Sorry.

Britney Spears’ Family Want Lutfi Legal Fees!

Posted by Adam

BRITNEY Spears‘ family are trying to claw back the $1 million they spent defending themselves against Sam Lutfi.

The star’s former manager’s lawsuit against Britney and her parents Lynne and Jamie Spears was thrown out by a judge on Thursday and they want Lutfi to pay their legal fees.

“Britney and her family have incurred at least a million dollars in fees defending themselves against the ridiculous allegations in Sam Lutfi’s lawsuit,” a source said.

“This lawsuit was filed three years ago and has been an emotional drain on Britney and her parents, especially her mom, Lynne.

“Team Spears will formally ask the judge in the very near future to order Lutfi to pay their legal fees. They don’t expect that Sam will be able to pay for the judgment if it’s awarded, but they still want to proceed anyway.”


Rumors We Hate: Sam Lutfi Alleges Britney Spears’ Heavy Amphetamine And Crystal Meth Use

Ugh, why can’t Sam Lutfi just disappear off the face of the planet? Britney Spears‘ ex-manager-slash-whatever was in court today to kick off his defamation suit against the singer’s family. The same one he was trying to get Britney to testify against the Spears at, specifically against her mom, Lynne Spears. Unfortunately, he’s come armed and ready to open a huge can of worms and make all sorts of horrible allegations, which is exactly what his lawyer, Joseph Schleimer, did on his behalf. He told the jury, and this is the one we really hate, that Brit was on amphetamines which is what led to the major mental breakdown she had a couple years of ago. The infamous one, where she shaved her head. Schleimer said, “She liked to use amphetamines. Most everything that went wrong was because of this drug.” Of course, it was added that Lufti was the one who tried to save her and get her off the drugs. The mud slinging got even worse after that, with Lutfi’s team also alleging that Britney, other than amphetamines, also used a lot of crystal meth, and that she shaved her hair off because she was paranoid that it contained traces of the drugs. Lastly, Team Lutfi says she was on a hell of a lot of amphetamines the day all hell broke loose and she had to be put in a psych hold. So far, these are pretty nasty accusations, but we weren’t expecting this to be civilized. And we hope to hell that Lutfi’s just up to his usual rumor-mongering, trouble-starting self. Britney’s doing really well these days and being dragged into a nasty court battle is not good for anyone. Besides, these heavy drug using rumors could wreck havoc in her personal life.

TMZ has already proven that Lutfi is full of BS about shaving her head because of the drugs. They’ve unearthed the video you can see above taken two years ago with him on camera saying that shaving her hair off “was a cool thing … somebody expressing their artistic side. I think she was just expressing her independence and her freedom … there’s nothing wrong with Britney. She’s awesome.” He looks shifty even then. We’re waiting on the Spears defense next, but we have a feeling this may crop up!
