London (ANI): Britney Spears and her parents have been sued by her former manager Osama 'Sam' Lutfi for libel and defamation. Lutfi turned to a Los Angeles court three days after Britney"s father Jamie obtained new restraining orders against him and her former paparazzo-beau Adnan Ghalib, alleging harassment by her 'ex-pals'.
He has now presented his version of the events in the legal papers, including the allegation that he had tried to help the pop princess reconcile with her parents, reports the Daily Express. Lutfi was said to have further cited the recent book authored by Britney's mum Lynne, 'Through The Storm', which he alleged was full of "false statements".
Jamie and lawyer Andrew Wallet, who oversee Britney's affairs, had previously been named permanent conservators by the court, granting them indefinite control over the singer's life following her two forced hospitalisations in early 2008.
