Although her former manager, Sam Lufti, had been attempting to force Britney Spears to give a deposition on his behalf in his lawsuit against her parents for breach of contract, defamation, and libel, the pop star will NOT have to, nor will she have to appear at the trial for testimony!

According to a letter from her attorney, Joel Boxer:

"While I am of course willing to engage in further dialogue with you concerning this topic, the record is clear: Plaintiff noticed Ms. Spears deposition, pursuant to the order of April 27, 2011 issued by Judge Goetz, the Co-Conservators may not produce her (Britney Spears) for deposition or trial testimony in the Lutfi litigation. Based on the findings of Judge Goetz — grounded in three years of supervision over the Conservatorship and the Conservatee as well as the recent report from an expert selected by the Court….. the Co-Conservators respectfully submit that Plaintiff's motion for an IME (independent medical exam) of Ms. Spears should be denied."

Furthermore, Boxer is asking the court to impose sanctions on Lufti and award attorney's fees - $9300 - to the conservatorship!

However, it's still unclear as to whether or not Brit will have to be evaluated by an independent psychiatrist, and a hearing has been set for June 15th to determine what to do!

Good! She shouldn't have to go anywhere near that creep!

Here's hoping that they she won't have to!

Sam Lufti Wants Brit Brit To Testify In His Defamation Lawsuit!

sam-lufti-wants-britney-spears-to-testify-in-his-defamation-lawsuit

This guy is a real piece of work. Hasn't he put this poor girl through enough?

Sam Lufti, who manipulated his way into the role of Britney Spears' manager while she was going through her issues and basically took advantage of her mental condition, has been pursuing a defamation lawsuit against her mother, Lynne Spears, for publishing just that in her memoir, Through The Storm.

Apparently, he's now trying to get the pop star on the stand to give a deposition, but her team has resisted, claiming she is mentally incapable of doing so. Therefore, on Monday, he asked a judge to have a pyschiatric evaluation of her to that the claims are not true, due to her recent lucid interviews and upcoming tour.

According to a declaration to the court by UCLA Assistant Professor of Psychiatry Joshua Retsky, who analyzed the singer's recent behavior on behalf of Lufti:

"In the Ryan Seacrest interview, which was recorded approximately two months ago, Britney Spears is interviewed at length, and she responds logically and coherently to questions, evidencing logical thinking and mental competency. The edited interviews in the [MTV] video documentary also evidence coherent and logical thinking, responsiveness to questions, and mental competence … In my opinion, there is good cause to conduct an Independent Medical Examination to investigate the Conservators' claim that Ms. Spears is not mentally capable of testifying, and the claim that she was not mentally competent to enter into a binding contract. …"

Yes, this all may be true, but that doesn't mean she should have to be thrown into a room with that man again!

It's clear that our Brit Brit has come a long way, and has made an amazing recovery from her issues thus far, but we imagine she's still got a long way to go - and there's no need to have to endure the added stress of a man who enabled her when she was at her absolute worst!

Can't he just leave her alone?! Ugh.

Absolutely deplorable!

What do U think?? Should Brit Brit be forced to testify?

Charlie Sheen Legally Banned From Seeing Children Until He Undergoes Psychiatric Evaluation

Filed under: Legal MattersCharlie SheenSad Sad

Good! We think that this is definitely in everyone's best interest.

According to Brooke Mueller's custody agreement with Charlie Sheen, the troubled actor must undergo a full psychological evaluation with a licensed psychiatrist in order to see his twin sons again.

A source explains:

"Charlie must submit to a mental health evaluation with a licensed professional before he can see Bob and Max. Charlie won't see the boys until he sees a psychiatrist, that is someone neutral, that hasn't previously treated him. Charlie knows what he has to do to see the boys. If he wants to see them, he will do it. Charlie agreed to these terms in the custody agreement. He has to adhere to the terms. The fact is though that before Charlie's problems began in the last several months, he had had little or no contact with Bob and Max in the previous 16 months."

Sadly, that has yet to happen, and we doubt it will for quite some time, if ever.

We're just thankful that Brooke put these terms into place in order to ensure that her kids remain safe.

Such a shame that his relationship with his children isn't an important enough incentive for him to want and get his life in order.

Here's hoping there's a miracle and he comes to his senses.

Brooke Mueller Insists Charlie Sheen Get A Psych Evaluation Before Seeing Children

Filed under: Legal MattersCharlie Sheen

Finally! You're showing some common sense! Good for you!

Right now, Charlie Sheen's current mental state is more than a little questionable and recognizing that, his ex, Brooke Mueller is requesting that he has a full psychological evaluation if he wants to get anywhere near their children again. A source close to Brooke explains:

"Brooke is extremely concerned for the safety of Bob and Max when it comes to being with their father. She is demanding that Charlie get a full mental health examination before he is allowed to have his next visit with the boys. Brooke will not waiver on this demand, period. The mental health professional would be someone that both parties agree to, however, Charlie is absolutely refusing to undergo any examination, period. If Brooke needs to go to court to make this happen she will. Brooke won't allow the boys to be with their father again until the mental health evaluation takes place."

Bravo, Brooke. We indeed clap for this. You know why?

Because maybe he can pass a drug test or 15, but we guarantee if he gets checked out by a psychologist, there is no way they will say he is sane enough to take care of his children - or even himself. There is no way of faking his way out of it.

He needs help and if using his children as a bargaining chip is the only way to get him some, we're all for it. Plus, we can't imagine a judge in the world who would deny her this request. Just show them one episode of Sheen's Korner and you can consider the matter closed!

Nicolette Sheridan Drops Physical Injury And Emotional Distress Claims Against DH Creator

nicollette-sheridan-drops-claims-against-abc.jpg

Looks like she's had a change of heart!

Former Desperate Housewives actress Nicollette Sheridan is dropping two of the most extreme claims from her lawsuit against her former DH employers, creator Marc Cherry, Touchstone Television, and ABC.

Back in April, Sheridan sued Cherry, Touchstone, and ABC, for $20 million, alleging assault and battery, emotional distress, gender violence, and wrongful termination. ABC responded that all of her claims were "without merit."

In regards to her physical injury and emotional distress claims, ABC required that she submit a physical and psychiatric evaluation, however, Sheridan has dropped those claims so she will no longer need to fulfill their evaluation request.

She still alleges though, that her physical injury claims are valid, but she wants to "streamline" the case.

Something seems a little fishy here.

Who do U believe?? Sheridan or ABC?
