Lutfi Fires Back, Sues Britney and Parents


Britney Spears' former "manager" Osama "Sam" Lutfi has filed a lawsuit against the pop superstar and her parents for libel and defamation.

Lutfi filed his claim Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court just three days after a judge granted Spears' father a restraining order against Lutfi and paparazzo Adnan Ghalib.

The lawsuit provides Lutfi's version of events, including his claim that he urged the singer to reconcile with her parents. Britney's father, Jamie Spears, currently serves as her conservator. The court granted her father permission to take control of his daughter's life a year ago, after a series of highly publicized hospitalizations.

Lutfi's libel claim cites momma Lynne Spears' recent book, "Through the Storm," saying it is filled with "false statements."
