Spears' Dad Blasts Ex-manager

BRITNEY SPEARS' father JAMIE has blasted her former manager SAM LUTFI - accusing him of spiking the singer with drugs and wrecking her life.
Jamie Spears, the co-conservator of his daughter's estate since January 2008, is seeking to extend a restraining order against Lutfi and the Toxic hitmaker's ex-boyfriend Adnan Ghalib, making it a permanent injunction.
And in an astonishing outburst, he told a court in Los Angeles Lutfi was a "predator" who had given Britney cookies laced with drugs, had tried to "extort" the singer, and fed her lies about her custody case with ex-husband Kevin Federline which led to her hospitalisation early last year (08).
He described his daughter's life under Lutfi's management as "pretty well a disaster", adding: "When (Lutfi) was in so-called control, she'd lost everything - her kids and career.
"I believe he's a predator, I believe he's very dangerous to her... and causes her a lot of anguish and disbelief. We've asked him to go away before, and now he's coming back. We just want the man to go away. Just leave us alone."
Referring to the events leading up to Britney's hospitalisation in January last year, he said: "She was told by Lutfi she could have her children for another night. She didn't want to let her kids go because she thought she could have them for another night."
Jamie also alleged Lutfi had tried to contact Britney by text message, and told the court: "Sam put drugs in (Britney's) biscuits."
The hearing is due to resume on Wednesday (25Feb09).

I had the same impression as Britney Spears fatherby following the story in the press.Her manager put violence on her to as a pressure to make better music. She could not feel good as an artist like best. The popsinger is the greatest, and do not have to live in a hell.Martin barslev, painter.
