Osama 'Sam' Lutfi sues Britney Spears and her parents for 'a campaign of lies and intimidation designed to destroy Lutfi and drive him out of Britney's life.'
Britney Spears' former manager Osama "Sam" Lutfi has filed a lawsuit on February 3 in Los Angeles against the singer and her parents for alleged libel and defamation. "Jamie and Lynne launched a campaign of lies and intimidation designed to destroy Lutfi and drive him out of Britney's life," so the legal document read.
Saying that the legal action is done to "defend himself against Jamie's and Lynne's persistent attacks," Sam is also seeking compensation for breach of contract based on an oral contract he claims he and Britney forged in 2007 to serve her manager for four years and receive 15 percent of her earnings. He states the singer confirmed the contract in a text message.
The lawsuit was filed four days after Britney Spears obtained restraining orders against Sam Lutfi and his ex-boyfriend Adnan Ghalib. The restraining orders were granted because Sam is believed to have tried to "disrupt" the conservatorship she has been under which gives her father control of her affairs.
