A restraining order against Britney Spears ex-boyfriend, Adnan Ghalib, was made permanent for three years, a judge ruled at a Wednesday hearing.

At the same time, the temporary restraining against her former manager and possibly the shadiest person ever, Sam Lutfi, was extended until April 1.

Britney’s father, Jamie Spears, who is the conservator of her estate, and their various attorneys have been seeking a permanent restraining order against Lutfi and Ghalib, alleging that they have tried to interfere with the conservatorship.

The singer’s father has been in control over her personal, medical and financial affairs, as mandated by the court, since Britney’s meltdowns of early 2008, and is largely credited with the resuscitation of her declining career and life in general.

The hearing this afternoon was held so the judge could determine whether to uphold the  restraining order, filed by Britney’s father, against Sam and Adnan.

Jamie Spears told the court that Britney made secret calls to Adnan in February on a pre-paid cellphone she somehow obtained – and was far from pleased.

Adnan’s restraining order now extends three years, end of discussion. On April 1, the judge will hear from witnesses in the ongoing case against Sam Lutfi.

Celebrity gossip photographer Adnan, who was dating Britney Spears for a few months at the end of 2007 and the beginning of 2008, was a no show at today’s hearing, so a judge green lighted the permanent injunction against him.

We’ll see if he abides by it.
