Comeback Story of the Year Britney Spears is being remodeled and revamped into a gentler, sweeter star by her father and conservator, Jamie Spears.

Well, except for her music of course. Minor detail.

"He’s really trying to clean up her image," a source told Fox News of Brit's chief handler. "He’s making a lot of changes to the people around her."

"Everyone is a bit on edge they could be replaced."

Sean and Jayden's new dad Jason Trawick seems safe, but Jamie Spears and his team have been busy hiring and firing various people in the star's camp.

He is also said to be paranoid of afraid of letting anybody get too close or learning too much about his daughter, whose past troubles are well documented.

"Britney’s family has seen what happens when she gets too close to outsiders (cough, Sam Lutfi) and they lose control of her completely," said the source.

But how does Britney apparently feel about all the changes instituted by her father? "She is so out of it she just doesn’t care anymore," added an insider.

Of Britney, a source close to her reports: "She just does what she’s told and is totally in her world, she’ll even call people at all hours of night for a general conversation and acts like it’s the middle of the day or something."

Raise your hand if you're surprised. Anyone? No?

Of course, while Jamie is busy trying to shake up those surrounding her, one thing he doesn’t seem to be changing or trying to make more innocent is her music.

Britney is set to soon release a raunchy music video for her new single "3" - a track which focuses on exactly what you think it does. Her having a threesome.

"Merrier the more, triple fun that way," a breathy Britney sings. "Three is a charm, two is not the same. I don’t see the harm, so are you in the game?"

Gulp. Yeah. Somehow we assume that raunchy style isn't going away anytime soon. Otherwise her record sales would. It's all she's got going for her.

Like an endangered species rehabilitated in captivity only to be released back into its natural environment, Britney Spears is about to be let back into the wild as her conservatorship appears to be nearing its end.

The star's father Jamie Spears, who has been in charge of her financial, medical and personal affairs for a year and a half, is ready to step down.

Soon.

Jamie will ask the court that appointed him to review the terms of the conservatorship after Britney Spears' Circus tour ends in November.

He cannot ask the judge to end the conservatorship - just to review it. The judge will then decide if Britney should regain control of her life.

According to sources, Jamie thinks Britney Spears is just about ready to go on her own. Her life has been his full time job since February '08.

She may complain he is overprotective sometimes, but whatever Jamie has done, he deserves due credit for. A year and a half ago, people were thinking Britney Spears was living on borrowed time. Now look at her.

In fact, were it not for the tour, the conservatorship may have been ended prior to this. Various vendors were promised, for insurance purposes, under contract that the conservatorship would last through the Circus tour.

We're guessing a stable boyfriend like Jason Trawick only helps Jamie's reasoning that his daughter is ready to resume control of her existence.

A love interest in her life that can actually be trusted? Bidding farewell to leeches Sam and Adnan? Thank you Jamie Spears, for all you've done.

By cutting him off, that is.

Sam Lutfi has filed legal papers in his defamation lawsuit against Britney Spears and her parents, Jamie and Lynn, claiming they have ruined "his life."

Lynne Spears' book, Through The Storm, about her famous daughter is a pack of lies, Sam Lutfi says, especially the part in which she says Sam told Lynne he was secretly grinding up pills and putting them in Britney Spears' food in 2007.

As a result of the book, "I am constantly in fear for my life," Sam Lutfi says in his lawsuit, not embellishing at all. Does anyone care about him in the least?

He says he was "harassed and cajoled by the public." Does that mean us? If so, sorry Sam. We wouldn't harass you if you weren't sponging off our girl.

Also, wasn't Sam "cajoled" long before Lynne's book was published? Whatever.

Evil Lurks Behind Her

Lutfi trotted out his own cast of character witnesses in the new legal docs - notably the infamous Adnan Ghalib - currently being prosecuted for felony battery.

Adnan wrote a declaration, claiming that Lynne Spears' assertions that Sam was effectively holding Britney Spears hostage during her dark times were false.

Call us crazy, and we are by no means legal experts, but if Adnan Ghalib is on your character witness list, you might as well throw in the towel now.

The Britney Spears conservatorship - since she can't file anything herself of course - has filed a response to ex-leech Sam Lutfi's lawsuit against her.

In a four-page document filed last week, Brit's camp, headed by her dad Jamie Spears and an aptly-named lawyer, Andrew Wallet, shoots down Lutfi's claims.

One by one, they put the bag of ass in his place, starting with Lutfi's top beef - that he is supposedly owed some serious cash for being Britney's manager.

But in court documents, Britney's handlers claim the oral contract between them is void because Sam "made false promises" in order to get her to agree to it.

Lutfi's days at the helm of Britney's career are thankfully over.

That wouldn't surprise us one bit. Also, Jamie Spears, Britney's dad, has already filed a response to the claims of assault filed against him by Sam Lutfi.

The Evil One's attorney remained confident he would prevail.

"I was hardly shocked that they didn't agree with our position," Bryan Freedman told E! News. "But I think there is ample evidence of this contract. There are writings that indicate the same. At the end of the day there won't be much dispute about this."

Brit's camp wants Lutfi to pay its legal fees as well. Stay tuned.

Earlier this week, Britney Spears bikini pics, adorable shots of Jayden and Sean and rumors that the star is dating her agent Jason Trawick surfaced online.

Well, we still can't state with any certainty whether she and Trawick are a romantic item, but we sure can tell you this: she and the kids had a freakin' blast!

On her official site, Britney writes that she has been "enjoying a wonderful vacation at the Atlantis resort in the Bahamas with her family and friends."

Here's a photo to prove it!

Whoever imagined Jordan Miller, who started a Britney Spears fan site while a high school sophomore in 2004, would one day receive half a million visits a day?

Whoever imagined Miller, now a typical college student at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, would be threatened with legal action by her dad, Jamie Spears?

Miller's world was turned upside-down last fall after he received an angry phone call from the pop star's father-guardian, accusing him of copyright violations.

"I'm working my ass off to report on this girl," Miller said.

In February 2008, after Britney Spears was forced into a treatment program for bipolar disorder, Jamie Spears was awarded conservatorship, giving him the authority to make legal, financial and medical decisions on behalf of his daughter.

Miller posted several blogs begging for Britney to be "freed."

Baby-Faced Britney

One fan site creator's opinions on Britney and posting of stories about Jamie Lynn Spears apparently have not gone over well with the stars' father and chief handler.

He also posted about a magazine story that suggested Britney's younger sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, was expecting her second child. Then his cell phone rang.

Miller said Jamie Spears told him, "I am going to destroy your ass."

"I was really freaking out for a good three or four weeks," Miller said. "Lately, I've been doing my own thing. I just kind of want to keep it going."

Each day, Miller scans the Internet for stories about Britney Spears, posts them on his site, BreatheHeavy.com, and adds his own comments. He encourages her fans to send him Circus tour photos or updates regarding her.

Miller said the site keeps him busy, but it is not as demanding now as it was when the troubled, out-of-control singer was shaving her head, bashing vehicles with an umbrella, being photographed without no underwear, and so on.

While Britney Spears is busy getting accosted by drunk fans on her Circus tour, a couple of her former clowns are starring in their own shows in L.A.

Spears' ex-manager Sam Lutfi and former boyfriend Adnan Ghalib appeared in separate hearings yesterday. Both shady hangers-on have already been banned from further contact with their former meal ticket through at least 2012.

Now the courts are sorting through the legal fallout.

Sam Lutfi fared considerably better than Adnan Ghalib, as a Superior Court judge set a trial date of March 8, 2010, for the former manager's lawsuit claiming defamation and unpaid fees against Spears and her parents, Jamie and Lynne.

Lawyers for both Lutfi and Jamie and Lynne Spears say they will spend the next 10 months attempting to resolve the case outside of court.

But in case that doesn't work out, they have a game plan. An attorney for Jamie Spears said that a countersuit may be filed against Lutfi.

Lynne Spears' attorney, meanwhile, said that he will likely seek to dismiss the portion of Sam Lutfi's lawsuit that's directed against her.

The grounds for that claim? That his allegation of defamation based on her new memoir, Through the Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World, is actually an infringement on Lynne Spears' right to free speech.

Particularly, her right to freely criticize whomever she chooses, especially when they play as large a part as Lutfi appeared to in the downfall of her daughter.

The trial date comes just days after Lutfi filed an appeal against a judge's extension of the restraining order obtained against him by the Spears family.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Aviva Bobb issued a three-year restraining order against Britney Spears' former manager, Sam Lutfi, on Tuesday.

Jon Eardley, a lawyer who has repeatedly challenged the validity of Jamie Spears' legal control over Britney, was also slapped with the same ban.

Both individuals must stay at least 100 yards away from Britney, her sons Jayden James and Sean Preston, and her family members' homes, and must not harass with Britney and/or her children, or contact them via phone, mail and email.

It also prohibits them from "acting on Ms. Spears's behalf or purporting to act on her behalf." The orders, however, do not specifically protect Jamie and Britney's mother, Lynne Spears, which Jamie had also sought to ensure.

The singer's father, who initially filed the request on January 30, alleged that both men have harassed his daughter, adding that Sam Lutfi arranged the smuggling of a cell phone to the troubled pop star recently at a hotel.

SAYONARA: Sam Lutfi's attorney, Bryan Freedman, said he will appeal.

"We absolutely will appeal this ruling," he said." Never before has a restraining order been issued against someone who answered another person's cries for help."

The order followed several hearings in which Spears' father, hairstylist, bodyguard, and others testified that the Circus performer was in fear of Sam Lutfi.

In his defense, his younger sister Christina Lutfi testified that it was Britney who hatched the cell phone scheme because she allegedly wanted Lutfi's help.

Rumors have persisted for months that the singer wants to torpedo her father's conservatorship, which has been in place since she went bat$h!t in early 2008.

One report even suggested that Jamie is drugging her. For now, at least, the court seems firmly on the side of her father and his legal conservatorship.

Lutfi's unrelated lawsuit against the Spears family for defamation and battery, as well as for many thousands of dollars in back wages, is still pending.

Britney Spears' former manager/sidekick/enabler, Osama "Sam" Lutfi, has filed an amended lawsuit against the pop star, toning down the rhetoric from his original complaint but still making the same basic accusations against Team Brit.

Chief among them:

  1. That her mom, Lynne Spears, slandered him.
  2. That her dad, Jamie Spears, assaulted him.
  3. That she owes him a $h!tload of money.

That about covers it.

Acting on behalf of his daughter's conservatorship, Jamie Spears obtained a temporary restraining order against Lutfi in January to keep him out of her life.

On February 3, Sam Lutfi fired back with a lawsuit that included salacious allegations about her parents manipulating and leeching off Britney Spears.

That led to Jamie asking the court to toss out seven pages of Sam Lutfi's complaint, claiming the charges were "calculated attempts to exploit the court system" to make public assertions that have "no factual or legal moorings."

No wonder she can rack up $2.7 million a year in legal fees.

In the fine print, Sam alleges: "Every aspect of [Britney's] life and more importantly, her fortune, has been controlled by her parents," and that losing control of their daughter "posed a serious threat to Jamie and Lynne" and their lifestyles.

Such language was nixed from the updated filing last Thursday, according to Lutfi lawyer Bryan Freedman, to "clarify" his client's accusations against the star.

Britney Spears has “convinced herself” that father Jamie Spears is upping her meds to keep her subdued and stay in control of her, according to sources.

“Britney is sure her father is out to get her and that he’s drugging her to turn her into a zombie who won’t fight back,” a source told British magazine Look.

While anonymous sources in unreliable magazines can't be taken at face value, the quotes back up rumors that Brit wants to torpedo the conservatorship.

“Ever since her breakdown last year when she was hospitalized, she’s been on several prescription pills to battle panic attacks. Her doctors have also prescribed anti-anxiety drugs Valium and Ativan to deal with stress and to help her sleep."

“As part of the court-ordered conservatorship, [Jamie Spears] has to make sure Britney takes the correct dosage because she forgets to take them."

"Lately, however, she’s been nodding off randomly in the middle of conversations and is convinced it’s because Jamie’s giving her much too much.”

This may also explain why she has no idea where she is sometimes.

The source adds that Britney Spears' friends, “tell her it’s just because she’s working so hard and performing every night on her Circus tour.”

But the superstar, says the source, thinks there are sinister, ulterior motives and insists her dad is drugging her to keep her under control.

Either way, it's a bad sign that Britney’s paranoia is rearing its head again in any form, as friends and lawyer Jon Eardley have been saying.

"She’s sneakily sending text messages to her ex-boyfriend, Adnan Ghalib, telling him she needs help because her dad is poisoning her," says the anonymous Britney mole. "She’s becoming desperate to get her dad out of her life.”

For the moment, at least, Jamie remains at the helm as the Circus tour rolls on. Click to enlarge some recent pics from Britney's L.A. show ...
