Sam Lutfi was formally served today with a temporary restraining order to keep him away from Britney Spears, People reports this afternoon.

The order was sought by the temporary co-conservators of Spears' $100 million estate - her father Jamie Spears and attorney Andrew Wallet.

A restraining order was obtained weeks ago, but Lutfi had managed to avoid getting formally served with it - which is required for it to take hold.

Until today, that is. Beeyotch.

Osama Lutfi had been accused by Britney's mother, Lynne Spears, of drugging and verbally abusing the struggling singer, trying to control her every move.

Britney Spears has been hospitalized twice already in 2008 and recently spent six days in the UCLA psychiatric ward.

Reports say Sam Lutfi was served at 11 a.m. PST as he left his apartment in West Los Angeles. Finally, they tracked him down. You got served, sucka!

The restraining order, which forbids Sam Lutfi from getting within 250 yards of Spears, her homes and her family's homes, alleges:

"Mr. Lutfi has drugged Britney Spears. He has cut Britney's home phone line and removed her cell phone chargers. He claims to control everything."

More details to come.

Christian Slater, who once punched his girlfriend, Michelle Jonas, in the face while drunk and high on heroin, has turned into a real softie.

The reason? New girlfriend and Jimmy Choo shoe founder, Tamara Mellon.

"He does romantic things for me daily," Tamara Mellon told Us Weekly at last night's benefit for EIF's Women's Cancer Research Fund.

She and Christian Slater were set up through a mutual friend in London about five months ago. The rest has been totally romantic.

Tamara Mellon has won the heart of Christian Slater.

"What can I say, I was really blown away," Christian Slater, 38, told Us of meeting Tamara Mellon, 40. "I just couldn't believe it!

"She is beautiful, but there is a lot more going on with her, and we have already had a lot of great adventures together."

No word on whether said adventures include wild nights out or quiet evenings on the sofa watching the Gene Simmons sex tape.

"We are just taking it one day at a time," Slater said. "It's wonderful."

Next up for the couple: This weekend's Academy Awards.

Tamara Mellon said she has been "very busy this week getting all the shoes ready" for the celebrities on the red carpet.

Jamie Spears apparently let Britney Spears out of her cage for a while yesterday, and released the holds on her credit cards as well.

The alleged singer was spotted spending some serious dough yesterday at Forever 21 at the Beverly Center in Los Angeles, California.

Careful Driver

Britney Spears wore her signature accessories - yellow, form-fitting top, black pants, big shades and one huge bodyguard. Back away!!

No word on what Britney bought at Forever 21, but if she wants to feel 21, she might try hitting the gym sometime instead of the mall.

Sorry. Just saying. Britney circa 2002 was so friggin' hot! Any Britney Spears pictures from the past 3-4 years don't even compare.

Mess with Britney Spears and this dude will end you.

While the star gets treatment for bipolar disorder, her conservators - dad Jamie and lawyer Andrew Wallet - are keeping her on a tight leash.

They're trying to cut her off from the bad seeds like Sam Lutfi, who remains under investigation by the LAPD for drugging Britney.

George Clooney says he won't beat out Daniel Day-Lewis for Best Actor at Sunday's Academy Awards, drawing a political analogy.

"For me, it's like being Hillary Clinton," the Michael Clayton star said. "If it weren't for Barack Obama, it would have been a very good year."

"I thought Daniel Day-Lewis had the best performance of the year."

Apart from his own race, the boyfriend of Sarah Larson handicapped all the other major categories, boasting to Time Magazine that he's never lost an Oscar pool. We'll see how accurate his picks are Sunday, February 24.


George Clooney did not say if he prefers Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama, choosing instead to discuss his recent film, Best Picture nominee Michael Clayton.

"Our film is the best it can be in that genre," he says of its Oscar chances, "but there's a ceiling on that genre."

Instead, Clooney predicts that No Country for Old Men will take the top prize, and its directors Joel and Ethan Coen will nab the Best Director trophy. He also gives a nod to Javier Bardem as Best Supporting Actor.

"If [Michael Clayton] has a shot at anything, it's Best Supporting Actress with Tilda Swinton," he says - although George Clooney officially made Amy Ryan, from Gone Baby Gone, his pick in that category.

The actor was also impressed by La Vie En Rose's Marion Cotillard.

"She does an old person trying to be young, instead of what everyone does - a young person trying to be old," he says. "It's a stunning performance."

Amy Winehouse's jailed husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, wasn't in the crowd at the Brit Awards last night in London, but don't worry, Blake fans.

The upstanding fella who overdosed on heroin in jail got a shout out.

After Amy Winehouse performed "Love is a Losing Game" off her smash hit album Back to Black, she yelled to the audience, "I love you baby!"

"Make some noise for my husband, my Blake!"

They did. Here's Amy singing, "Love Is A Losing Game" ...


The troubled Blake Fielder-Civil, whom she married last May in Miami, has been locked up since November on assault and witness tampering charges.

Amy Winehouse, who donned a tight black dress that she nervously lifted during her performance, wasn't nominated for any awards this time.

Delivering a good performance was enough, though. After a really rough period, Winehouse is "full of life," says pal and backup singer Zalon Thompson.

Law enforcement sources report that the LAPD investigation into Sam Lutfi allegedly drugging Britney Spears is well underway.

According to TMZ, the case has been assigned to Robbery Homicide, primarily because of the very sensitive nature of the allegations and the intense media scrutiny surrounding everything connected to Britney Spears.

Investigators have interviewed several witnesses regarding the drugs in Britney Spears' system at the time she was most recently committed.

Sources close to the investigation say it was temporarily derailed because of the death of an LAPD SWAT officer, but it's now back on track.

BAD SEED: The investigation of Sam Lutfi will conclude in March.

Mother Lynne Spears alleges that before her daighter was hospitalized - the second time - her supposed friend and manager, Sam Lutfi, drugged Britney.

As conservator of Britney's estate, her father, Jamie Spears, has obtained a restraining order against Lutfi. This bars him from contacting her.

In a strange twist, a New York lawyer - claiming Britney herself hired him - has challenged the conservatorship in federal court, though a judge isn't buying it.

Jason Wahler is back in the news.

Last year, you may recall, was a rough one for him.


The former Laguna Beach and Hills stud checked into rehab last year after four arrests in four different states (Calif., Wash., N.Y., N.C.) on charges ranging from underage drinking to assault and hurling racial epithets at a police officer.

Well, it's the last part that may have gotten Jason Wahler in trouble yet again - and banned from his college fiancee's place of residence!

The 21-year-old Wahler has reportedly been barred from the apartment of his blonde bride-to-be, Katja Decker-Sadowski, at USC, Us Weekly reports.

The reason? Wahler's use of racial slurs against a security guard on February 10 at Conquest's Tuscany, the complex where Katja Decker-Sadowski lives.

The accounts of the incident:

  • A witness says: "He called him the N word."
  • A Conquest rep added: "Jason Wahler's racist remarks were uncalled for. He is no longer welcome in the building."
  • Jason Wahler said: "None of this happened."

Well, that settles that.

Regardless, this is too bad. We were hoping that by getting engaged to Katja Decker-Sadowski, Wahler's mean streak was officially a thing of the past.

You did the right thing dumping him, Lauren Conrad. Twice.
