Britney Spears

Britney Spears

Britney Spears’ former manager is suing her for defamation and breach of contract. Oh dear bitter Sam Lutfi is lashing out just because Britney finally realised he was actually using her and fired him.  In papers filed at a Los Angeles Court yesterday (03.02.09), Sam Lutfi alleges Britney and her parents Jamie and Lynne Spears – who he is also suing – libelled him, committed battery and caused him intentional emotional distress. Causing him emotional distress? Wasn’t Britney under his watch when she had her mental breakdown? The papers claim: “Jamie and Lynne launched a campaign of lies and intimidation designed to destroy Lutfi and drive him out of Britney’s life.

This campaign also provided Jamie with the opportunity he needed to obtain an appointment as Britney’s conservator. “Despite seemingly accomplishing their objectives, Jamie and Lynne have nevertheless continued their smear campaign against Lutfi. Thus, having no other alternative, Lutfi brings this action to defend himself against Jamie’s and Lynne’s persistent attacks.” Jamie became co-conservator of Britney’s personal and professional affairs last year, following her public breakdown. While in the position, he banned Lutfi from seeing the 27-year-old singer. Last week, Jamie and Britney’s lawyer Andrew Wallet – who also acts as co-conservator – were granted a new restraining order against Lutfi, after they claimed he was harassing the Spears family. Lutfi is also claiming his reputation was tarnished by Lynne’s tell-all memoir ‘Through the Storm’, in which she talks about his alleged control over Britney.

Drew Barrymore

We thought we had problems when it comes to men, but it seems poor Drew Barrymore was once dumped by the same man twice. Drew, why did you go back?  The ‘He’s Just Not That Into You’ actress – who is currently single but has been married twice – admits the experience was very painful but can now see the funny side. She said: “I once got dumped by a guy twice! The second time I was like, ‘Really? Are you sure now?’ ” After repeatedly being unlucky in love, the 33-year-old star is now savvier about suitable men, and tries not to waste time if she doesn’t immediately click with someone. She revealed: “Luckily I haven’t had that many bad dates. I went through that with this lawyer, and we sort of looked at each other at dinner and went, ‘Yeah, no. This isn’t going to work!’ We sort of shook hands and ended the evening.”
