Sam Lutfi Reportedly Demanded Money from Britney Spears

The following italicized article is taken from

Sam Lutfi "made various demands" of Britney Spears, "including demands for money," court documents in the singer's conservatorship case claim.

The revelation was part of a declaration submitted by attorney Jeryll Cohen, who is representing Jamie Spears, Britney's father and co-conservator.

Cohen said that Spears' business manager, Howard Grossman, told her of the "numerous emails" from Lutfi with the demands.

Cohen is seeking the dismissal of Grossman by Spears' conservators – Jamie and attorney Andrew Wallet – because, in part, he will not turn over the emails despite a court order

Cohen's filing claims that despite a court order stating that Spears lacked capacity to retain an attorney, Grossman arranged for a meeting between Spears and Adam Streisand, an attorney who claimed to represented the singer.

Also, the declaration says that Grossman authorized one of Spears' Mercedes to be delivered to her at the Beverly Hills Hotel despite a court order to only release her cars to representatives of Jamie or Wallet.

With Jamie in charge, Lutfi was banned from contacting Spears.

Jamie and Wallet were named co-conservators of the singer's legal, medical, and financial decisions on February 1.

The court's decision to put them in charge was the worst-case scenario for Spears, sources told Us, as she has never been close to her father (who battled alcohol abuse during her childhood and was verbally abusive).

Spears was released from the UCLA Medical Center on February 6 after a week of treatment. She had been expected to remain hospitalized for another 10 days.

The singer was involuntarily committed to treatment for bipolar disorder on January 31.

OK! Exclusive: Brit's $6,000 Hairdo

The following italicized article is taken from

It's time for Britney Spears to say goodbye to that neon pink fright wig she so adored wearing before her court-ordered hospitalization. The pop princess is getting some fake hair — maybe to go with that fake British accent?

To add a little length to her tired tresses, which haven't been the same since the infamous head-shaving incident of 2007, Brit requested some new extensions be put in by her stylist, Kim Vo.

And this lock-lengthening comes at a pretty steep cost. While he won't name the number on this specific price tag Vo reveals to OK! that, “a house call for new extensions can be up to $6,000.”

But unlike some celebs who save their millions by using their fame to get free cuts, colors and styles, Vo tells OK!, “We will be sending her a bill.”

Maybe Brit could auction off that pink wig on eBay!

Brit's Manager Allegedly Uses Mercedes Ploy

The following italicized article is taken from

New documents were filed in the Brit conservatorship hearing last Thursday -- and now we know why the conservators want to give Brit's business manager the ax.

Lawyers for the conservators accused business manager Howard Grossman of ignoring their ground rules. One lawyer wrote in a declaration that she told Grossman "he was not permitted to give Britney any money, credit cards or access to money or credit cards or to meet with her ... at the Beverly Hills Hotel or anywhere else.

"The lawyer claims Grossman defied the order by meeting Brit at the Bev Hills Hotel last week. The lawyer, Jeryll Cohen, is pissed off because Grossman also directed Bev Hills Mercedes to deliver one of Britney's cars to the hotel without first getting the conservators' permission. Cohen says Grossman's lame excuse was that "he wanted to build her [Brit's] confidence in him."

Lutfi Allegedly Demanded Money From Brit

The following italicized article is taken from

In a declaration filed in the Brit conservatorship case, a lawyer for the conservators accused Sam Lutfi of demanding money from poor Brit.

Attorney Jeryll Cohen wrote, "During the telephone conversation, Mr. Grossman [Brit's business manager] told me that he had numerous e-mails from Osama (Sam) Lutfi in which Mr. Lutfi made various demands, including demands for money. Mr. Grossman told me he did not comply with Mr. Lutfi's demands.

"Cohen and the other lawyers have asked the court commissioner to let the conservators fire Mr. Grossman, in part because they say he has refused to provide copies of Lutfi's e-mails to them.

Pregnant Jamie Lynn Spears Out With Casey Aldridge in Kentwood

The following italicized article is taken from

Pregnant Jamie Lynn Spears made a rare appearance in her hometown of Kentwood, Louisiana.

Hiding her bump in a baggy hooded-sweatshirt, the Zoey 101 star, took her black and white puppy to the veterinarian Friday.

(The 16-year-old wore a similar oversized sweatshirt when she was last photographed leaving a GED class with her mom Lynne January 4.)

On Saturday and Sunday, Spears went out with her beau, Casey Aldridge, the father of her baby.

Hand-in-hand, they went to a convenience store Saturday. Spears sported a white Heineken beer T-shirt that showed the faintest hint of her growing stomach.

The next day, Spears and Aldridge ran errands, stopping to kiss every now and then.

Her dad is currently in Beverly Hills looking after older sis Britney.

The Wig is Up!

The following italicized article is taken from

“When the pink wig comes on, it’s getting bad,” Sam Lutfi told Us Weekly about Britney Spears' erratic, and wig-related, antics, but it seems that Brit’s father, Jamie, is trying to put a stop to the insanity. Papa Spears was spotted heading to his apartment with an armful of laundry, but there's one particular item we spy — the pink wig! (Actually, that’s a lie, we can’t help but notice the Corona T-shirt, LSU cap and a double dip of glasses — all that’s missing is a beer cozy.) Hopefully the fact that Britney no longer has the pink wig of wackiness in her possession means we won’t be subjected to her crazy, Brit-speak rantings and ravings anymore… although that kind of disguise looks like it comes in packs of three for $1.

While Jamie was on wig-watch, and every other celebrity was getting primped for the Grammy awards, Britney visited some old friends — the staff at Starbucks. Apparently the things she missed most while undergoing treatment in UCLA Medical Center were their Frappuccinos and friendly faces, so she popped in to a Westwood, Calif., outpost yesterday for some quality-time… in the bathroom. Yep, Brit skipped her traditional Venti Frap and headed straight for the ladies' room while her new security team hovered outside the door — liking the job so far, fellas?

Britney eventually emerged from the restroom, but will the once-brilliant pop star we fell in love with ever resurface? Hey, Amy Winehouse has made a go of it, so can Brit!

Britney Hunted By Crips And Bloods?

The following italicized article is taken from

The gang of shooters chasing Britney Spears all over L.A. might be infiltrated by some folks who have actually shot ... a gun or two.

Rush & Molloy report that the paparazzi pack on Spears' trail now includes members of the Crips and Bloods, mainly because it's a full-out war out there. "I've heard stories of fights, of car tires being slashed, cars being blocked in," says one ex-snapper.

Indeed, says one photo-agency head, "whoever muscles their way to the front gets the best picture." Says another, "It's too dangerous ... She goes through a yellow light, you go through a red. People break laws."

What Is Kevin Hiding?

The following italicized article is taken from

Last week, Mark Vincent Kaplan's former spokesperson, Michael Sands, told X17 he was subpoenaed to be deposed for Britney and Kevin's ongoing custody battle.

As the former media spokesperson for K-Fed's attorney, Michael was apparently privy to a lot of information that Kevin and his lawyer don't want exposed!

Life & Style has obtained a letter from Mark Vincent Kaplan, delivered to Michael Sands, requesting "copies of any documents you [Sands] intend to produce in response to the subpoena so that we may review the documents to determine any appropriate objection and basis for protective order."

So what exactly does Mark Vincent Kaplan have to hide?

An insider tells the mag: "Mark wants all emails, hand written records, notes, meeting notes, phone call notes and records, anything that has to do with his client Kevin Federline, to be handed over. He doesn't want anyone seeing the things that have been said privately, and doesn't want anyone to know about the secret plans and quotes said behind closed doors with regards to Britney."

The source goes on to say, "there are a lot of people that are starting to see that what's going on is not as pretty as it seems. Britney is mentally ill, and Kevin and Mark Vincent Kaplan have been making her look bad, taking her to court, keeping her from the kids."

I guess we'll find out more when Michael's deposed on February 20th!

Brit's Sam: I Am Not On The Lam

The following italicized article is taken from

Sam Lutfi has come out of hiding! E! News has learned that despite the restraining order filed against him by Jamie Spears, Britney's been phoning her former manager/confidant for the last several days. Sam's response: "Not true."

She's not the only one who wants to reach out to Sam. Process servers can't seem to track him down—going on nine days now—but multiple sources confirm to E! News that Lutfi attended Paris Hilton's birthday party at Area on Saturday plain sight!

Inside Area, sources tell E! News that "a relaxed and happy-to-be-out again" Lutfi partied in a VIP area with other Brit-Packers Alli Sims, Hilton and Brit pal Claus Hjelmbak. "At one point, they all toasted and cheered Britney," says an Area partygoer.

Sam was seen arriving at Area around 11:15 p.m. and left around 1:30 a.m., being ushered quickly into an SUV by a security detail and driven off down La Cienega Boulevard.

Here's a hint for Jamie Spears' process servers: We hear Lutfi is currently holed up in his West L.A. apartment—and if that doesn't work, try Paris' next bash?
