Washington (ANI): Popstar Britney Spears' ex-manager Sam Lutfi may be asked to foot her legal fees in a new move by the singer's lawyers. Lutfi, who has been slapped with a three-year restraining order, may have to dole out 123,142 dollars to cover the fees brought about by the courtroom battle over the restraining order, reports People magazine.
Spears' lawyers asked a Los Angeles court to order him to pay, and they are also seeking 129,922 dollars from Jon Eardley, an attorney who has challenged Jamie Spears' control over his daughter.
They are also seeking 72,292 dollars from her ex-boyfriend Adnan Ghalib, and both he and Eardley have been ordered to stay away from the pop star. A judge has yet to sign off on the request.
