Britney Spears granted 5 year restraining order against ex-manager Sam Lutfi

Britney Spears has been granted a permanent restraining order against her former manager Sam Lutfi. The Los Angeles Superior Court concluded that the 44-year-old is ordered to stay away from the Opps I Did It Again singer, her mother, Lynne, her sister, Jamie-Lynn, her two sons, Sean and James, and her father, Jamie, who has been appointed the head of her conservatorship for the last 11 years. Sam has been ordered to stay 200 yards away from the listed parties and to refrain from posting disparaging statements about them online for the period of five years.

The decision was made by Judge Brenda Penny, after hearing testimony from Sam and Britney’s father Jamie. The order is the extended version of one that was filed in the same case last month. As part of a temporary restraining order, set at the beginning of the month, the same regulations were put into place. After the agreement was reached, Sam’s attorney Marc. S. Gans told E! News in a statement that they would be working to appeal the decision.

“We are disappointed in the result,” he said. “We feel this is overly broad and violates Mr. Lutfi’s constitutional rights.” Sam was removed from the Baby One More Time singer’s life in 2009. The family was also able to get a three-year restraining order granted at the time. The Spears family alleges that since, Sam has had his over 41,000 social media followers send unkind messages to the pop star and has sent threatening text to the family.
