Mom: Sam Lutfi drugged Britney
The Britney Spears saga
continues, Lynne Spears accuses manager Sam Lutfi of giving her
The latest twist in the Britney Spears' drama comes from her
mother, Lynne Spears, who claims that friend and manager Sam
Lutfi has been drugging her daughter in order to control her.
Lynne Spears has filed court documents to have Lutfi removed
from Britney's house and in those documents she accuses him of
crushing-up prescription pills in her daughter's food in order
to keep Britney under his complete control. In the deposition
Lynne Spears mention the drugs Seroquel and Risperdal, which are
anti-psychotics used to treat schizophrenia and bipolar
disorder. The known side effects of the drugs that Lynne Spears
alleges were given to Britney may also help explain some of the
singer's recent behavior.
"Mr. Lutfi drugged Britney, he has
cut Britney's home phone lines and removed her cell phone
chargers. He yells at her, he claims to control everything -
Britney's business manager, her attorneys and the security
guards at the gate," Lynne Spears wrote in a court
declaration, cited by ABC News. The restraining order, approved
Friday and released by the court Tuesday, bars Lutfi from coming
within 250 yards of the singer.

the Britney Spears drama is not going away anytime soon, have
