Osama ordered not to contact Britney Spears (Lead, Changing Dateline)

Los Angeles, April 29 (Inditop) A court here has ordered a former confidante of Britney Spears to stay 100 yards away from the pop diva and her children.

Osama ‘Sam’ Lutfi, who was at one time Spears’s confidante, has been called a predator by Britney’s father Jamie. Jamie has sought court intervention to restrain Lutfi from contacting his daughter. Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Aviva Bobb Tuesday ordered Lutfi not to file any legal papers on her behalf.

In his order Tuesday, the judge also restrained attorney Jon Eardley who claims he was hired by Britney Spears to represent her in her legal troubles. The orders against the two men run till 2012. Lawyers for Jamie said the two men were part of a conspiracy to break up the court-ordered “conservatorship” under Britney’s father who has managed her affairs for 14 months. But Lutfi’s lawyer Bryan Freedman said Spears contacted his client as she wanted to break free from her father’s control.

“Never before in the history of the world has a restraining order been issued against someone who did nothing more than answer a cry for help,” the lawyer was quoted as saying.
