Breaking news today that the infamous Sam Lufti who is Britney Spears former manager is suing both Britney and both of her parents; he is claiming that they have defamed him and claiming breach of contract. Going back to last year when Britney was having the worst year of her life…the news was peppered with comments of worry relating to Sam Lufti’s relationship with Britney.
Her parents were alledging that he had too much control over Britney and that he had allegedly confided in Britney’s mother Lynne that he gave her “medications”. Britney was exhibiting behavior that had everyone concerned for her well-being and that of her children. Britney’s father Jamie went to court and got legal control over Britney’s finances and business dealings; effectively removing anyone with suspected ulterior motives from unauthorized access to Brit’s money or to Britney herself.
Sam Lufti is now claiming that Jamie and Lynne have combined efforts to lie about him and have used intimidation to remove him from Britney’s life. I don’t think that the Spears’ have tried to hide the fact that they believe that Sam Lufti should have no contact with Britney; since they went to court to limit his contact with her. They were very concerned about their daughter and did what they felt was best to protect her and guard her safety and emotional well-being. Sam Lufti says he feels he had no choice but to file suit against them in their campaign to smear his name. Britney, after being hospitalized twice and having her father take over conservatorship of her legal and business affairs has made a miraculous recovery. She has regained the ability to visit with her children and to perform onstage before her fans with confidence, once again.
Jamie Spears has again gone to the courts, recently, to file a restraining order because of what he says are attempts by Sam Lufti and others in regards to the harassment of the Spears family. I would presume that they would have evidence to back up that claim, or he would not have gone through the inconvience and cost of going to the court to file charges.
The timing of this latest difficulty for the Spears family comes close to the beginning of Britney’s new tour which is scheduled to begin next month. The tour promises to make lots of money and I would not be surprised if Sam Lufti, as her former manager, feels that he would have been benefitting from the profits of such business dealings; if he had not been removed from contact with Britney Spears.

Well, it seems that tone of voice can make all the difference in the world when a statement is made. It has been reported that a contestant, by the name of Mark Mudd, auditioned for the American Idol show. The audition apparently didn’t go well and as he was exiting, Mark Mudd said, “Be Careful”. The American Idol judges took that comment negatively since the audition didn’t get him on the show.
Both Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul allegedly felt threatened. With Paula Abdul’s recent experience with an obssessed fan’s, Paula Goodspeed, suicide near her home…it is understandable that she would be a bit wary; however, i think had they concentrated on Mark Mudd’s tone of voice…maybe they would have heard a clue that tipped the balance of common sense that the statement held no threat of future violence. The judge’s alleged perception of the statement was influenced by the alleged failure of the audition to get the performer on the program as a contestant.
The audition was in Louisville, Kentucky; and in that region of the country, and others, “be careful” is a common phrase spoken in parting. I do it myself…it is the way i grew up…it is a caring way to part company; it expresses concern for the other person’s well-being. (more…)
