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.

The federal judge in the Britney Spears conservatorship case has issued an order extending the restraining order against Sam Lutfi.

The ultra-shady pal of Britney formally got served with the restraining order yesterday afternoon after weeks of deftly avoiding it.

According to the order, Sam Lutfi must stay at least 250 feet away from Britney - and also have zero phone contact with her - through March 17.

What's more, a judge ruled that Lutfi has been properly served with legal papers after the douchebag's rep had challenged the service of process.

The federal judge has already indicated the case is headed back to state court, rejecting the recent, bizarre legal challenge to the conservatorship.

Lutfi has other problems, too, namely the LAPD investigation by the Robbery Homicide Division of his allegedly drugging Britney Spears.

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.

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.
