Sam Lutfi is striking back at accusations that he is trying to harm Britney Spears and insisting that he isn't a creepy slimeball. He's suing the Spears fam for defamation and battery.
In new papers filed on Friday, Brit's former manager is saying that the pop star is actually the one reaching out to him through text messages, despite a court order against it, although he does also admit that he's delivered messages through Britney's hairdresser and ex-boyfriend, Landing-Strip Adnan. He insists that the messages were in no way harmful.
Lutfi's lawyer, Bryan Freedman, tells People that "I don't think anyone would want to have on public record allegations of behavior that weren't committed. A restraining order to is protect someone against stalkers and people who want to commit violence, and that description doesn't fit my client."
Daddy Spears and his legal team, however, are saying that Lutfi, Ghalib, and their lawyer are working in cahoots to "disrupt the conservatorship with utter disregard for Ms. Spears's health and well being," and that Lutfi allegedly sent Britney's hairdresser a message which read, "I've done everything I can to free her from [the conservatorship]. Very close to getting her free now."
Leave Britney alone!
It's expected to all go down this Wednesday in court.
