Restraining Order Could Be Extended Against Britney Spears' Ex-Manager

Britney Spears's family seeks to extend a restraining order against her former manager.

The Los Angeles judge is to consider the extension of a restraining order on Thursday, released in the name of singer Britney Spears against her former manager Sam Lutfi.

The hearing first began on 28th May where lawyers for Spears intended to present tweets and texts from Lutfi which were deemed to be emotionally destructive to Spears and her family.

On the last hearing, Spears' father Jamie Spears testified against Lutfi. The court scheduled the hearing to resume on Thursday.

On May 8, Judge Brenda Penny granted the restraining order against Sam. While people don't expect Britney Spears to appear on the court, Brenda has closed the hearing to the media and the rest of the public. The chances are Brenda can approve a lengthy extension to the order against Sam.

Meanwhile, Lutfi and his lawyer are ferociously arguing over the order which prohibits him from making disparaging statements about the pop singer or her family, violates his constitutional rights.

Lutfi argued in court documents that, “There has been no psychological or other evidence offered by Ms. Spears that she has actually suffered any distress.”

Sam allegedly stated he did not contact Spears after they took the last restraining order out in 2009. Spears family first requested a restraining against Lutfi in 2009, shortly after Lutfi was a constant confidante and adviser to her when she also went through a series of public mental struggles.
