One of the shadiest characters ever to appear on this and other celeb gossip sites, Sam Lutfi, has filed a lawsuit against Britney Spears and her parents.

The Evil One is suing Team Britney for libel, defamation and battery, as well as intentional infliction of emotional distress and breach of contract.

According to the court papers filed today, the baddest of the bad seeds claims that Britney's parents, Jamie and Lynn Spears, have "launched a campaign of lies and intimidation designed to destroy Sam Lutfi and drive him out of Britney's life."

In the lawsuit, Sam claims he was standing in Britney's kitchen on January 29, 2008 when Jamie stormed into the house. Lutfi alleges Jamie yelled at him, claiming Sam made a rude comment to Lynne the night before.

Then, the alleged former manager says claims, Jamie Spears "intentionally punched him in the chest" and threatened to kill him if he ever heard Sam make a rude comment about Lynne or any member of Britney Spears' family again.

Britney Spears and the seedy one during his 2007 reign of terror.

All the claims of libel and defamation spring from Lynne Spears' memoir, Through the Storm, which was published last year. Lutfi says since the publication of the book, he "has been subjected to unfathomable amounts of ridicule and public scorn."

In the book, Lynne insinuated that Lutfi was an unstable, disreputable, manipulative, controlling and dangerous individual, even drugging the star at one point.

Lutfi also claims Britney Spears broke a contract with him, therefore owing him unpaid management fees. He claims he had an oral agreement with the pop singer to be her manager for four years, earning 15 percent commission.

Last Friday, Britney was granted a restraining order against Lutfi and Adnan Ghalib, barring them from having any contact with her, her parents or her kids.

Oh Adnan Ghalib and Sam Lutfi, how we have missed thee at The Hollywood Gossip. Jamie Spears, on the other hand? He'd like to never see them again.

Britney Spears' father has obtained three restraining orders - against her ex-boyfriend, her ex-manager and his attorney, according to court documents.

Jamie Spears and lawyer Andrew Wallet, who oversee Britney's affairs as co-conservators, allege that the three men "are now working in concert to disrupt the conservatorship with utter disregard for Ms. Spears' health and well being."

Spears' father says Britney's cell phone records indicate "numerous telephone conversations" as well as text messages with her ex-manager, Sam Lutfi, and former boyfriend, celebrity news photographer Adnan Ghalib.

SHADY AND SHADIER: Britney Spears hangers-on Adnan Ghalib, left, and Sam Lutfi.

"[Britney] innocently informs [Adnan Ghalib] of her destinations and he then arranges for paparazzi to meet and film her to his financial benefit," Jamie Spears says in court documents. "[Adnan] is harmful to Ms. Spears and to her recovery."

Her father also alleges that on December 27 and December 28, 2008, Sam Lutfi tried to contact Britney Spears through her hairdresser with the message that Lutfi was "not responsible for the conservatorship" of Jamie Spears.

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, 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.”

Good riddance, Osama! Britney Spears' former confidant and evil manipulator, Sam Lutfi, has agreed to stay away from the pop star through July 31.

This fact was revealed in a Los Angeles courtroom late Wednesday.

The epitome of a bad seed, Sam Lutfi was slapped with restraining order back in February, after Spears' mother, Lynne, accused him of drugging Britney, and her father, Jamie, became legally in charge of the pop star's estate.

Such orders can be extended to up to five years in certain cases.

No word on why Sam Lutfi declined to fight the restraining order.

Meanwhile, Jamie Spears and his attorney, Andrew Wallet, remain in legal control over her affairs, with Brit's brother Bryan Spears a trustee.

Their conservatorship will be reviewed by the court on July 31 - but it's expected that, given their recent progress, the control will be extended.

Another hearing regarding Spears' estate is set for today. The singer has been doing her thing, even returning to the recording studio yesterday.

Britney Spears joined her mom Lynne and her father Jamie for a bite to eat at the Paradise Cove Beach Café in Malibu, California, last night.

Lynne â€" who recently visited the set of CBS' How I Met Your Mother, which will mark Britney's return to TV next week â€" threw a coat over her eldest daughter's head to shield her from the swarm of celebrity news photographers.

Monday, Lynne (who is divorced from Jamie Spears) spent time with her two little grandchildren, Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 17 months.

Meanwhile, the scourge of Britney Spears' life (and all of humanity), Sam Lutfi, filed papers objecting to the California Superior Court commissioner who ordered him to stay away from Britney Spears for another month.

The document, which was signed by Lutfi, did not reach the courtroom until after Monday's hearing, during which the restraining order barring Sam Lutfi from coming within 250 yards of Britney Spears was extended until April 16.

Sam Lutfi, who Lynne Spears accuses of demanding money from the singer and drugging her, is free to appear in court on April 16 to petition for a new judge.

The bad seed has two previous restraining orders against him for violent verbal and physical attacks for incidents not related to Britney Spears.

Britney Spears' seedy former confidant, Sam Lutfi, has agreed to stay away from the singer for an additional month, according to court papers.

Sam Lutfi must stay two and a half football fields away from Britney Spears at all times and is not allowed any telephone contact with the star.

The restraining order against him was set to expire today.

While no official reason was given for the agreement, it appears that a deal was struck as a way of warding off a courtroom confrontation with Spears' parents.

The court is expected to approve the extension.

Britney Spears' mother, Lynne Spears, previously accused Lutfi of drugging and verbally abusing her daughter. Los Angeles police are investigating.

Depending on evidence presented regarding Sam Lutfi in court, a restraining order can be extended for up to five years, legal experts have said.

In Osama Lutfi's absence, Britney Spears appears to be getting her life back on track slowly but surely - thanks to dad Jamie Spears' controlling influence.

Brit recently filmed a guest appearance on CBS' How I Met Your Mother and is now allowed multiple monitored visits with her two sons - Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1 â€" each week, says a source close to the case.

A source close to the case adds that those visits - agreed to by Spears' ex, Kevin Federline, without the court's involvement - would likely increase over time.

Spears has also been hanging out with Mel Gibson, who along with his kids and wife Robin, has been lending support to the troubled pop singer.

This stuff keeps getting better and better.

The shady Sam Lutfi is reportedly going to fight the restraining order against him by getting Britney Spears to take the stand in court.

This is according to OK! Magazine, however, so we all know it won't happen in a million years. But wouldn't it be great?

Can't you just see Osama Lutfi up there, lookin' all evil and glaring at his former meal ticket, getting more furious by the second as his ass gets grilled by Britney Spears' attorneys, then lashing out at America and the world?

According to "reports," Sam Lutfi has contacted Brit through a third-party and asked her to help him fight the restraining order, which had been sought - and obtained - by Britney Spears' parents and their lawyers.

Britney Spears and Sam Lutfi had a very healthy relationship.

As far as we know, Sam and Britney have not seen each other since the order was handed down. According to OK!, Sam Lutfi reportedly said:

"I am going to call Britney to the stand so she can tell the world how I was helping her. I am innocent. I am Britney's friend and would never hurt her."

Lutfi's spokesman, Michael Sands, said he does intend to fight it: "Sam is a good guy who does not agree with this restraining order."

The seedy one, who is the subject of a police investigation regarding his alleged drugging of Spears, will apparently fight it out in court on March 17.

Sam will allege that he didn't drug Britney as Lynne Spears alleges, and that she actually had access to drugs from other visitors that came to the house.

Sure thing.

The LAPD is finally commenting on the record regarding the investigation first reported earlier this month. The subject? You-know-who.

As TMZ reported in early February, Sam Lutfi is under investigation by the Robbery Homicide division of LAPD for allegedly drugging Britney Spears.

Brit and the Boys

LAPD officials initially said there was no such investigation, despite sources within the department saying that Sam Lutfi was, indeed, being looked at. 

Sam Lutfi: Shady doesn't begin to describe him. 

Now, Captain Kyle Jackson of the Robbery Homicide division has issued the following statement regarding the LAPD's investigation:

"The issues regarding Britney Spears are being considered by the department to determine if laws have been violated. Particular suspects have not yet been fully identified nor has a formal investigation into open charges officially commenced. At this time we don't know whether or not a formal investigation will be initiated."

Translation: Find the nearest cave and hide, Osama.
