Uh-Oh! Spaghetti O's!
As Amanda Bynes' parents prepare to fight for a conservatorship in court tomorrow, it seems as if someone else has been fighting to get close to her for different reasons entirely!!
Sam Lufti — the notorious manager so closely associated with Britney Spears' tragic meltdown — is allegedly trying to work his way into the struggling starlet's life!
Folks say Sam befriended Amanda several months ago, but he recently bought her the trans-continental plane ticket back to El Lay that she couldn't afford on her own!!
One source close to the situation says:
"Sam bought Amanda the plane ticket for her to return to Los Angeles from New York City. She had no money. The two became friends in recent months. It’s very concerning to say the very least, given Sam’s history with Britney Spears leading up to her father, Jamie Spears, getting a conservatorship over his daughter, and getting a restraining order preventing Lutfi from having any contact with her."
We all remember BritBrit's horrible ordeal and we would hate to for the same fate befall Amanda — especially since hospital folks are hinting at severe mental issues!!
Sam kept mostly mum on the matter, he only said:
"I have to call you back."
Sam has a shady past, and peeps in the know say he's a bad fit for Amanda!!!
Another source revealed:
"Amanda should be kept very, very far away from him. She is emotionally extremely vulnerable and needs mental health help. He can come across as extremely charming and caring, but he is also very, very manipulative, and would want total control of Amanda’s life. This is the last thing she needs in her life right now."
Ugh!!! This all sounds so sketchy!!
We just hope Amanda gets the best treatment possible, regardless of who she keeps in her life!!
