Britney Spears' dad now controls finances



Tbdbritneyspears020608 Britney Spears’ father Jamie was given control over the one-time pop star’s finances until Valentine’s Day, the AP reports, while professional Sam Lutfi was shown the door.

Court Commissioner Reva Goetz says Jamie and attorney Andrew Wallet have conservatorship until Feb. 14, while a court-appointed physician will evaluate Brit to see if she is competent to make her own decisions. Obviously she hasn’t been, being all chummy with Lutfi, her sometimes manager.

Brit was ordered to have no contact with him by phone, texting or other means — which must include smoke signals, telepathy and astral projection. Goetz extended the restraining order that was issued last week, although the court said that original order hadn’t yet been enforced, since Lutfi has been seen bringing Britney food at UCLA Medical Center.

People says the request for a restraining order shows Lynne Spears accused Lutfi of drugging her daughter and verbally abusing her. This includes allegedly grinding up pills into her food and calling Britney "an unfit mother, a piece of trash and a whore."

Lynne said the drugs included "Risperdol and Seroquel," but People points out there's no drug called Risperdol. There's Risperol, a sleeping pill, and Risperdal, an anti-psychotic, but Seroquel is used to treat bipolar disorder.

"I'm the one who spends 24/7 with your daughter," Lynne claims Lutfi told her. "I sleep in cars outside her house so she can't leave." 

He sure sounds like a great friend, don't he? It's a good thing he's not allowed within 250 yards of her for the time being.
