Spears Asks Judge To Charge Lutfi & Ghalib With Restraining Order Costs
BRITNEY SPEARS wants her former manager SAM LUTFI and her ex-boyfriend ADNAN GHALIB to cover all the legal costs incurred in her bid to win restraining orders against them.
The Toxic hitmaker won a court order last month (Apr09) banning Lutfi and his attorney Jon Eardley from going within 100 yards of the singer or her family members for the next three years. A similar order was issued against paparazzo Ghalib in March (09).
And Spears is attempting to get her former associates to pay her lawyers' bill.
The singer's legal team filed the motion in a Los Angeles court last Friday (08May09), requesting a judge order Lutfi to pay $123,142 (£82,095); Ghalib $72,292 (£48,195) and Eardley $129,922 (£86,615).
A ruling has yet to be made on the request, reports People.com.
Lutfi filed an appeal against the restraining order earlier this month (May09).
