Sam Lutfi, Britney Spears’ former manager and possible criminal, is hoping to rekindle his friendship with the troubled singer.
The Evil One has been barred from seeing Britney Spears after her parents filed for a restraining order against him following her breakdowns earlier this year, believing he was a negative influence on the troubled singer.
Sam is due in court for a review of the order – which forbids him from being closer than 250 yards away from the struggling star - on July 31.
A source told In Touch Weekly: “Sam believes he and Britney are still friends. If the restraining order is lifted, he’ll be back in her life for sure.”
According to the insider, Sam still denies allegations made by Britney’s mother Lynne that he drugged the singer and controlled her medications.
The source added: “Sam Lutfi insists it will come out that the restraining order was against the wrong guy. So lifting the order would give him the chance to protect Britney from the vultures out there.”
