An LA judgegranted Spears a temporary restraining order against Lutfion Wednesday, ordering him not to contact the singer or her family. Insiders say Spears and her parents believe Lutfi — who managed her from 2007-08 — is behind the recent #FreeBritney fan uproar over the conservatorship her father, Jamie, has over her.
“If you connect the dots, it all leads to Sam being all over this,” an insider told us. “People have been sending death threats, and they suspect it’s the same folks behind #FreeBritney.”
Another source told us Lutfi has been hounding people in the singer’s circle sinceshe checked out of a mental health facilitytwo weeks ago.
He texted and called her mom, Lynne, according to court documents, offering her money to challenge the conservatorship. The documents also state Lutfi posted “disparaging and threatening comments” on social media, including calling for the public to “raise hell” to free Britney.
A rep for the star didn’t comment.
A source added, “Sam is trying to insinuate himself into Britney’s life again. Her family worries he could have a dangerous impact on her mental health.”
Court filings also claim he has been threatening to release private documents from her past.
Britney allegedly confided in Lutfi about her 2007 head-shaving meltdown, and the family was convinced he drugged her.
Spears’ mom wrote in her 2008 book, “Through the Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World,” that Lutfi had been slipping Adderall into the singer’s food, which he denied.
Lutfi did not return our request for comment, but his attorney said on Wednesday, “We are disappointed in the results. We feel this is overly broad and violates Mr. Lutfi’s constitutional rights. We look forward to arguing the matter more fully at the hearing for a more permanent restraining order on May 28.”
