Sam Lutfi played a key role in engineering the ruse that landed Amanda Bynes in treatment, but is his continued involvement in her saga cause for concern?
As previously reported, Amanda Bynes was placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold at a Pasadena mental hospital last week after flying back to Los Angeles from N.Y.
Her friend Sam Lutfi, who was once Britney Spears' manager and bizarrely linked to that star at the time of her 5150 hold, was instrumental in getting her there.
Not surprisingly, Bynes is far from pleased about all of this.
Already deeply distrustful of her family and friends, she's incredibly pissed at her parents and the ruse that landed her in a mental institution against her will.
Yet Lutfi, who convinced her she was meeting with an attorney to sue her parents, is reportedly still close to Bynes' parents and is even giving them advice.
