Britney Spears - Britney Spears Can't Leave Her Past Behind As Sam Lufti Trial Begins

It has been five years since Britney Spears' epic meltdown, in which she shaved her head, had allegations of 'child neglect and abuse' made against her, was charged with a hit and run, repeatedly checked in (and out) of rehab and finally was put under the temporary co-conservatorship of her father and solicitor. She has come an extraordinarily long way since then, completely cleaning up her image. She is now engaged to Jason Trawick who earlier this year was included in the co-conservatorship, and she is working as a judge on the X-Factor. However, Britney can't leave her shady past behind has her ex-manager Sam Lufti is suing her, with a wide variety of accusations.

In the law suit, filed in 2009, Lufti accuses Spears of “libel, defamation, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress and breach of contract” reports Fox News. Spears co-conservatorship jointly decided that it would not be good for Spears' well being for her to testify and as such will not be taking to the stand at the trial. However, Lourdes Torres, who worked as a nanny for Spears will be testifying, and the Daily Mail reports that she will attest to the emotional manipulation Britney has been under by the co-conservatorship.

In a book published by Britney's Mum called “Through the Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Fortune in a Tabloid World.” Lufti was accused of plying Spears with drugs. The trial is expected to last up to three weeks with Spears' parents and her fiancee to testify.
