Sources say former Britney Spears' hanger-on Sam Lutfi won't be legally restrained from seeing her as of today - but it doesn't matter.

She's so over him. Plus, either Jamie Spears or bodyguard Lee will totally break his face if he comes anywhere near her. Who needs courts?

Celebrity news sources report that Britney's lawyers will not ask for a new restraining order when the existing one expires this afternoon.

That's because Sam Lutfi ain't gettin' anywhere near Spears - she wants nothing to do with her shady former BFF ever again. End of story.

The fact that Jamie feels confident that Britney's mindset is stronger than any legal document is an affirmation of Sam's irrelevance.

So this may be the last time we write about Sam Lutfi. Bittersweet, since he provided much entertainment. But we're glad to see this worm go.

Sam Lutfi with Britney Spears back in his peak mind-control days.

Britney Spears has apparently fallen for one of her bodyguards — a former Israeli soldier, according to the UK's questionable The Sun.

The 26-year-old "singer," who's battling to get her volatile private life back on track, is dating the muscle-bound tough guy named Lee.

Lee is the supposedly fourth (!) member of staff dated by Britney Spears, for whom he has worked full-time for the past six months.

Sources say Lee has been spending his days off by Britney's side and even sleeps under the same roof at her home in Studio City, Calif.

Britney and Lee hit it off immediately as he is "her type." We do not know what that means, as she's dated "types" like K-Fed, JR Rotem, Adnan Ghalib, Isaac Cohen and Jason Alexander to name a few - but good for her!

They are in Mexico together having a great time.

Do you think Britney Spears and Lee are dating - and does anyone know Lee's last name? Help The Hollywood Gossip help you!

Yankee slugger Alex Rodriguez is playing hardball against wife Cynthia in their divorce case, saying he wants their prenuptial agreement enforced.

In court papers obtained by the New York Daily News, A-Rod's side responds point by point to the July 7 divorce filing by Cynthia Rodriguez.

Nose Picking By Alex Rodriguez

A-Rod admits the marriage is "irretrievably broken," but because Florida is a no-fault divorce state, he doesn't have to say why - and won't.

Claims that he "emotionally abandoned his wife and children" and that they broke up because of his "extramarital affairs and marital misconduct" are "immaterial and impertinent and should be stricken," Alex's court filing states.

This is in response to her petition to the court, in which Cynthia Rodriguez asked for the couple's $12 million estate and "equitable distribution" of all assets acquired during her six-year marriage to Alex Rodriguez.

While naming no figure, she petitioned for alimony and support, including benefits as life and health insurance and private schools - suggesting she be able to maintain the "high standard of living" A-Rod has provided.

A-Rod, whose 10-year, $275 million contract with the New York Yankees makes him baseball's highest-paid player, says he wants the prenup enforced. What the terms are is not known, but apparently they don't suit Cynthia.

It seems as though nary an episode of The Hills passes by without Lauren Conrad shedding a tear or getting into a cat fight.

"I know I look tortured," she says in the September issue of CosmoGIRL. "But, it's a TV show and you don't see all sides of people.

LC in Effect

"The Hills is a dramatic show about relationships. It's not about me being a designer. No one wants to see me working at the factory on my collection, or me and Lo [Bosworth] having a dance party in our pajamas."

Lauren Conrad says there are downfalls to living a public life.

"Can you imagine being 22 and having your parents know everything there is about you?" she laments. "Literally, my mom can go online and find out where I went last night, who I was with. I mean, there are no secrets!"

Lauren Conrad — who recently denied claims that she is not actively involved in her clothing line — is currently plotting out her fall wardrobe.

On her list? "Really rich colors like plum, dark green and black."

When two stars of popular new TV shows collide wearing the latest trends, it's a celebrity fashion clash for the ages. Or at least July 31.

The lovely Leighton Meester celebrated her Nylon cover in her Zac Posen dress - and provided yet another example of hip Gossip Girl fashion.

Meanwhile, Lipstick Jungle star Lindsay Price filmed a scene in the same slim-fitting sheath. Hot! It's no Lindsay Price nude, but what can you do ...



Who wore it best, Leighton Meester or Lindsay Price?

It's a celebrity fashion clash between a pair of The Hollywood Gossip's favorites. But of these SoCal cuties will ultimately prevail?

Rachel Bilson of The OC and The Last Kiss fame added chic accessories to a Riller & Fount T-shirt dress while shopping in New York City.

Meanwhile, Laguna Beach alumna and former Lauren Conrad rival Kristin Cavallari wore the same item - only one-sleeved - in L.A.

Presidential candidate John McCain has released a new ad comparing rival Barack Obama to Britney Spears and Paris Hilton and questioning his readiness to lead.

Yes, we're serious.

Yeesh

The aforementioned gossip mainstays appear in a brief montage as a narrator describes Barack Obama as "the biggest celebrity in the world."

The narrator then asks "Is he ready to lead?" and proceeds to list off a series of vague positions supposedly held by the Democratic Illinois Senator.

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHXYsw_ZDXg[/youtube]

To us, it seems like your boilerplate Republican ad, criticizing the Democrats over taxes, foreign policy, etc. ... with random pics of Britney Spears for good measure.

In short, a vote for Obama is a vote for a girl who shaved her head, was hospitalized for after a psychotic episode, and who eschews pants at nightclubs. Nice!

What are your thoughts on this John McCain ad? We'd love to hear them. And for more from the colliding worlds of celebrity gossip and political news, check out the latest on John Edwards and Rielle Hunter!

In the latest issue of Teen Vogue, Vanessa Hudgens opens up about life after High School Musical and life with Zac Efron...

On moving on from the High School Musical franchise: “It’s sad. This is our last time doing a movie together, and we love each other so much. We really grew up together. We can be free when we’re around one another, and the amount of fun we have is ridiculous.”

On her personal love life with Zac Efron: “I keep my relationship quiet. I think that works.” **

Vanessa Hudgens is graduating from High School Musical.

On choosing her next project: “I don’t want to do something that messes me up mentally. I think people just don’t realize that sometimes actors can really take it in and become that person.”

On being proud of her High School Musical character: “I love that Gabriella is Hispanic. It’s nice to be able to stand up for people who don’t have someone to look up to very often.”

** Except when she's stradding Efron for every celebrity gossip reporter within a two-mile radius to see.

Despite his ex-fiancée’s lies claims, The Bachelor star Matt Grant is definitely not cool with Shayne Lamas keeping their engagement ring.

“It wasn’t a ‘gift’ so much,” the British-born Grant says. “It’s not a TV or a handbag. It’s a symbol of a marriage that didn’t happen.”

Shayne Lamas recently said she planned to keep the 2.85-carat diamond ring “safe and clean and in a glass box — like a glass slipper.”

She claimed Matt Grant approved, adding, “He wants to come over and look at it.”

He says that conversation never happened.

“We never discussed this,” he says. “I never said it was cool to just keep it. If she said we spoke about it, then she just made that up. Sometimes she thinks she can say anything and that I’ll go along with it.”

Amazing to think these two never got married, isn't it?

Almost as soon as the final rose was presented, Grant and Lamas were dogged by rumors of infidelity. Specifically, Shayne was said to have been screwing Justin Weneger in Las Vegas. They split earlier this month.

Matt Grant says he doesn’t want the ring back, necessarily, but thinks Shayne Lamas should at least auction it off for charity.

“Let’s have something good come out of this,” he said of the $65,000 rock. “Why hold onto it? What’s the point?”
