Sam Lutfi is pissed!

Britney Spears' "friend" and "manager" is taking issue with stories on celebrity news sites that say Brit's family believes Lutfi is a cancer.

Lutfi called TMZ's head honcho, Harvey Levin, to report that there was no intervention Monday, but then said Britney's family "barged in."

For the record, TMZ says Britney Spears' family is trying to plan an intervention to get her help for mental problems, and Lutfi is in the dark.

Sam Lutfi said of Britney Spears' parents:

"They have an agenda. Their agenda is jealously because they don't fit in. I do. They see her three times a year."

Somehow, these two have been inseparable for some time.

Britney was by the phone during Lutfi's talk with TMZ. Sam claimed that he did not force Britney to buy a car (yesterday), asking Spears, "Did I force you to buy a car." In a heavy southern accent, she responded, "No."

He continued, "Do I ever bug you?" She replied, "We argue."

THG NOTE: If that's what you want to call that huge fight Monday ...

Lutfi said Britney's mom, Lynne Spears, is fine with him - it's her father, Jamie Spears, who's a problem. Sources say that's complete bull$h!t.

Both Lynne and Jamie Spears "are on the same page," sources say, in believing that Osama Lutfi is a "megalomaniac" motivated by "evil."

It has been reported for weeks that Britney Spears' family, friends and some of the professionals in her life have been planning a "creative way" to deal with her mental problems. Finally, it looks like the time has arrived.

If it happens, TMZ reports, it should happen this week.

Last night, Brit's mom, Lynne Spears, her father, Jamie Spears, "cousin" Alli Sims, creepy manager Sam Lutfi and boyfriend Adnan Ghalib all showed up at Britney's house and were all there at the same time.

Britney's mom and dad (among others) have known for months that a bipolar disorder - not substance abuse - is at the root of her mental problems.

They cannot involuntarily commit her (impossible under the circumstances) and Britney has refused to voluntarily enter a hospital or even undergo an evaluation for the problem. But now a new plan is underway.

Britney had not spoken to her mother for a while, but last night, Britney and Lynne Spears (along with Sam Lutfi, background) left her gated compound at one point and went to the drug store, so they are now interacting at least.

An intervention has been in the planning stages for well over a month. It should begin to unfold if Britney Spears cooperates... but that's a big if.

All we can do is wait, watch and hope.

Britney Spears' parents - and the LAPD - rushed to the singer's home Monday evening as she had a huge bust-up with her friend and manager, Sam Lutfi.

The evening's events began around 6 p.m. when Britney was in tears after an argument with Lutfi. Britney then stormed out of Sam's car, outside the gates to her Summit Circle home, and sat on the side of the road sobbing.

Hot, Caged Animal

According to TMZ, Britney's paparazzi beau, Adnan Ghalib, got a phone call from a hysterical Britney at that moment, pleading with him, "Baby, can you come pick me up?" Adnan told her that he would be right over.

Britney then got into the car of another photographer named Felipe (we think it must be Filipi Teixeira), and drove inside the gates of her home. It was then that Adnan tried unsuccessfully to gain entry into her gated community.

When Adnan arrived, however, he was told in no uncertain terms that he was not allowed to enter the gates to Britney's estate - the bodyguards were under strict orders from Sam Lutfi not to let Ghalib inside.

As she wept openly outside, sources say Adnan Ghalib tried calling each of Britney Spears' six cell phones and the house phone, but she did not answer.

At 9:07 p.m., Britney's father, Jamie Spears, arrived at the Summit home. After sitting outside the gates for a few minutes, he finally went inside the compound. Britney's mother, Lynne Spears, arrived soon after.

Around 9:30 p.m., Britney Spears left her home, alone. She was later seen driving around Los Angeles with Adnan by her side. Shortly after 11 p.m., Britney and Adnan returned to her home. Take that, Sam!

The LAPD were called to the scene for a person trying to get access to the grounds without permission, or to contain the paparazzi crush that was trying to shoot the fight, depending on what account you read.

Either way, George Clooney is not going to be happy.

Details of Sam Lufti's deposition with K-Fed's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, have yet to be released, but it has been hinted that Lufti brokered a deal on behalf of Britney Spears with a celebrity photo agency.

The gist? The paparazzi group gets free rein to take whatever Britney Spears photos it wants and Spears gets a cut of the profits. It has also been hinted that Sam Lufti is one shady character - not that this is news to us.

Spears Family Moment

The New York Post's Page Six reports ...

"Britney Spears' constant companion and 'manager,' Sam Lufti, has had three restraining orders taken out against him in California before hopping on the pop tart's crazy train. Danny Haines, one of the people who obtained a court order against Lufti, says Sam told him he should "just kill himself" when their friendship soured. Sam Lufti was "even more jealous than a lover," Haines tells Blender magazine. He says Lufti would go to extremes, telling him he was a "worthless mother[bleeper]" one minute and that he "loved" him the next."

"When Haines eventually cut him off, Sam Lufti humiliated him, e-mailing naked photos of him to his family, friends and co-workers. He texted and called incessantly and, according to court documents, told Haines he hoped his sister would be "raped to death." Haines says that in one e-mail to him, Lufti wrote of Haines' mother that he hoped "Satan devours her flesh and bones" and he looked forward to the day he could 'piss on her burial.'"

In short, Sam Lutfi is ...

  • Actually named Osama Lutfi
  • At least a little uncontrollable
  • Possibly a chick (serious jealousy issues)
  • Possibly gay (not that there is anything wrong with it whatsoever, but why the hell does he have naked photos of Danny Haines!?)
  • In need of professional help for rage problems
  • Perhaps the most seedy character ever on our site

Naturally, he and Britney Spears are best friends. Makes perfect sense.

Will we see Britney Spears nude in Blender? The jury is still out.

Is she finally seeking help for myriad mental problems? We'll have to see on that, as well, but her seedy friend seems to think so.

In a phone call to Barbara Walters (really, we're serious), Britney Spears' pal and shady character extraordinaire Sam Lutfi revealed that the troubled pop singer "is starting some kind of treatment" for "mental issues."

"There is a man named Sam Lutfi, who is the manager and very good friend of Britney," Walters said. "He has been staying with her constantly.

THG NOTE: Why on Earth is Barbara Walters talking to Sam Lutfi? She used to be an actual journalist, right? Okay, we now return to Walters' quote ...

"[Sam Lutfi] got in touch with us... I can't vouch for this... He seemed to be very knowledgeable and he certainly was very nice. He said Britney was suffering from what he describes as mental issues which are treatable.

For whatever reason, Sam Lutfi talked to Barbara Walters today and said that Britney Spears is seeking treatment for her worsening mental problems.

Walters continued: "He said she has been to a psychiatrist and ... I assume she is starting some kind of treatment. [Britney Spears] has been having severe mood swings. She has been having some kind of trouble sleeping."

Walters said Sam Lutfi also claims Spears â€" who hasn't seen her sons Sean Preston and Jayden James in three weeks since she lost visitation rights â€" "is in touch with her mother â€" because we had heard that she wasn't â€" and her mother [Lynne Spears, who arrived in L.A. Sunday] has been very supportive."

Britney Spears' right hand man, Sam Lutfi, was grilled hard by Mark Vincent Kaplan, K-Fed's lawyer, yesterday afternoon in Los Angeles.

The goal, from Kaplan's perspective, was to learn how Lutfi injected himself into Britney's life, what her behavior is like, and how that impacts her kids.

The deposition, which ended just before 6:00 p.m. PST, covered a wide range of issues. Sources say Kaplan asked about the meds Britney takes, where she goes, what she does at home, what she drinks, and on and on and on.

Kaplan also asked Sam Lutfi about his relationship with the celebrity photo agency X17 and specifically whether he and the train wreck have a financial deal where they help X17 get pictures of Britney Spears and in return get ca$h.

This would be one hell of a blow to Britney's chances of ever seeing Sean Preston and Jayden James again if true. X17 has denied there's any deal.

Kaplan asked that sponge Lutfi about his own income and where he gets it, etc. Further probing Lutfi's shady past, Kaplan also asked about the six lawsuits in which he was reportedly sued - Sam said most were against his father.

TMZ reports that Lynne Spears, Britney's mom, has no idea where Sam Lutfi came from and how he got into her daughter's life in the first place.

All those details may finally come to light soon. Stay tuned ...

Sam Lutfi, the freeloader sponge hanger-on friend who has been all over around Britney Spears for more than a year now, is going to tell all. Under oath.

Well, sort of. He's about to have his deposition taken in the singer's ongoing custody battle with Kevin Federline, TMZ reports this morning.

Osama Lutfi was scheduled to arrive at the offices of K-Fed's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, earlier today. This should be very interesting.

Sam Lutfi (right), is Britney's right-hand man, for better or worse.

Lutfi has tried to dodge this at every turn, even running from Aaron Cohen, who served him with a subpoena, earlier this year. That marked one of first times this celebrity gossip site had heard of good ol' Sam. Ah, memories.

One of the lines of questioning Sam Lutfi will likely face in the deposition involves the popular celebrity photo agency X17. Kaplan wants to know if Britney made a deal with X17 to "catch" her living life - and if Lutfi is the bagman.

If Britney is making money from a photo agency - a theory that fueled even further by her recent "romance" with Adnan Ghalib - that wouldn't sit well with Commissioner Scott Gordon. Stay tuned ...

Is Adnan Ghalib a thing of the past?

We doubt it, but it certainly seems that the recently inseparable beau of Britney Spears was AWOL as the train wreck spent Saturday night with her close friend and "manager," Sam Lutfi, and his strange new "pal," Chad Hardcastle.

To kick off their night of partying, Spears and Sam Lutfi hit up one of Britney's favorite eateries. No, not Taco Bell or McDonald's. Jerry's Deli style.

Spears was driven around Hollywood by good ol' Osama before picking up her new "friend," named Chad Hardcastle, over in West Hollywood.

He may not even understand his role in her life, but Chad Hardcastle (left) has been hanging out with Britney Spears over the past week. And Sam Lutfi.

A source reportedly close to the trio was quoted as saying:

"The mystery surrounding Britney Spears' entourage member Chad Hardcastle continues. A multi-millionaire pastor's son from Florida, he's rumored to be the man Britney's companion / manager, Sam Lutfi, wants her to date."

Throughout the evening, Chad turned the tables and took pictures of the paparazzi surrounding Spears. Well, he certainly fits right in there.

Unlike every other young woman in Hollywood - from Jessica Alba to Jillian Grace to Camila Alves - Britney Spears is not pregnant.

So says the singer's keeper, Sam Lutfi, who told Access Hollywood that the photos of Spears and Adnan Ghalib buying a home pregnancy test were just the couple "toying with the paparazzi."

As for whether or not his piggy bank is knocked up, Lutfi simply said: "It's all bulls--t."

Hey, Brit, let's really screw with the celebrity gossip world and not show up at your kids' custody hearing. That'll show them!

Sam Lutfi is the worst of the worst.

While Lynne Spears, Jamie Spears, Adnan Ghalib and, of course, Britney herself are to blame for the singer's free fall from grace, supposed friend Lutfi shoulders most of the current blame.

He's an enabler.

Hey God dude, it's Brit Brit here! Thanks so much for your mocha fraps and the invention of the Internets and those kids of mine! I forget their names, I won't be seeing them for awhile... but dang, they're cutie pies! Mmm... pies.

Lutfi defends Spears throughout her most asinine decisions, the most recent of which involved ignoring a custody hearing and ensuring the loss of visitation rights simply because a throng of reporters were awaiting Brit at the court house.

In a ludicrous attempt to explain yesterday's course of action, Lutfi told E! News via text message that the paparazzi awaiting the singer's arrival made it impossible for her to enter the building, as there was "no way to get her out of the car safely."

Right, Sam. As if she wouldn't fight through them to go to Taco Bell.
