Former Attorney For Jamie Spears Testifies Britney Wanted Ex-Manager Jailed

Britney Spears asked for her former manager, Osama "Sam" Lutfi, to be jailed, a former attorney for the pop star's father said in a Los Angeles courtroom earlier today.

Jamie Spears has been seeking a permanent restraining order for his daughter against Lutfi, and the hearing in Los Angeles, which saw testimony from Jamie's former attorney, Blair Berk, was at the request of his current counsel.

According to City News Service, Berk recounted the pop star's request regarding Lutfi to the court.

"She repeatedly asked if I could get him arrested for what he'd done to her and get the court to order him to stay away from her," Berk said, according to CNS.

Berk also reportedly claimed Lutfi threatened to release embarrassing information about the pop star and her dad if Berk did not stop such information being released about him.

Additionally, Berk spoke about Britney Spears' lack of relationship with attorney Jon Eardley, who once challenged the conservatorship Britney is currently under. Berk testified that the pop star previously told her she did not know Eardley and she did not want him as her lawyer.

Lutfi's lawyers claim there is no evidence that proves he caused Britney Spears emotional distress, according to CNS. They are fighting the restraining order.


Later in the afternoon, Lutfi's sister, Christina Lutfi, testified that Britney contacted her asking for her ex-manager's help.

According to the Associated Press, Christina Lutfi, who was brought in as a last minute witness, said on the stand that she had spoken with the pop star and that Britney said she wanted a new attorney. Christina Lutfi also claimed she was in fear of her father while on the stand.
