Britney Spears Granted 5 Year Restraining Order Against Former Friend Sam Lutfi


Britney Spears has been Granted 5 Year Restraining Order Against Former Friend Sam Lutfi


Britney Spears has just won a major legal victory.


The singer and her family have been granted a five-year restraining order against her former friend Sam Lutfi.


The decision was made Thursday, according to court documents obtained by CNN.


The restraining order is an extension of a temporary order issued last month, which mandated Lutfi not make "disparaging public statements" about Spears or her family and stay 200 yards away from the Spears.


Lutfi has maintained for years that he was Spears' manager, although her representatives have told CNN that was never the case.


In the original 81-page court filing in May stated that Lutfi used Spears in the early 2000s to "gain attention' and kept her "isolated." Lutfi was one of the people who was around Spears during a time where her personal struggles were highly publicized in 2007.


Lutfi did admit to contacting Spears' mother via text message and phone calls, although he claimed it was not harassing behavior and that he was simply concerned for Spears after she checked into a mental health facility and suspended upcoming performances earlier this year.


Lutfi's attorney, Marc S. Gans, had argued the order was overly broad and a violation of Lufti's constitutional rights.
