And Sam Lufti strikes out again!
Britney Spears' former manager and boyfriend is suing her fam for assault and defamation. The trial is expected to begin soon, so Lufti is hard at work trying to prove his case.
He was hoping to use a video of Brit Brit's father swearing at a freelance reporter named Eric Mitchell, but even HE doesn't see any validity in Lufti's lawsuit and is refusing to take part in the trial!
In fact, he completely understands where Jamie Spears was coming from during the confrontation and claimed to be "100% Team Britney" after explaining:
"Sam Lutfi's attorney Joe Schleimer called me on Sunday morning and wants me to take the witness stand about a video I shot of Jamie Spears four years ago when Jamie cursed me out. This was around the time that Britney was having her very public meltdowns, and I don't blame him at all for cursing at me as he was going through so much at the time. I'm not inclined to turn over the video, nor voluntarily appear. If Sam wants me to testify, he will have to formally subpoena me."
On top of resisting Lufti's requests to testify in the Spears trial, Mr. Mitchell is wishing "her all the best."
