Spears' Father Files Restraining Orders Against Former Manager and Ex-Boyfriend


Britney Spears' father Jamie Spears has obtained restraining orders for his daughter against ex-boyfriend/paparazzo Adnan Ghalib and former friend/manager Osama "Sam" Lutfi. The AP reports the two had been trying to gain control of the singer's affairs.

The restraining order filed by Jamie Spears states Lutfi and Ghalib "are now working in concert to disrupt the conservatorship with utter disregard for Ms. Spears' health and well being." Brit's father and lawyer Andrew Wallet oversee the star's affairs as co-conservators.

Spears' father says her cell phone records show "numerous telephone conversations" and text messages with Lutfi, 34, and Ghalib, 36. The papers also say Brit informs Adnan "of her destinations and that he then arranges for paparazzi to meet and film her to his financial benefit."

Her father also alleges that on December 27 and 28, 2008, Lutfi tried to contact Britney through her hairdresser with the message that Lutfi was not responsible for creating the conservatorship. He allegedly sent a text message to the hairdresser saying, "I've done everything I can to free her from this. Very close to getting her free now."

The restraining orders forbid the men from contacting Spears or coming within 250 yards of her, her property or family members, according to the L.A. Superior Court papers.
