While Britney Spears is in hospital for psychiatric treatment; her manager cum confidante Sam Lutfi has been accused of drugging her, according to newly released court documents.
Britney's mother Lynne Spears has made allegations against Lutfi that he had cut the troubled pop star's phone lines and even took away chargers for her mobile phone, in an attempt to take full authority over her life.
Lynne has made the allegation in a signed declaration in order to get a restraining order filed in a Los Angeles court, while her 26-year-old daughter is in UCLA hospital for psychiatric treatment.
In an earlier ruling, Britney's father had been given full control over her life including her 20 million pounds estate. Her parents have already banned Lutfi from coming within 250 yards of Spears' Beverly Hills mansion and also from sending her e-mails or calling her.
According to the declaration filed by Britney's parents, they tried to stage an "intervention" on 28 Jan to help her get badly needed medical help. Even Lutfi was part of this meeting and Lynne has given details of what she saw and heard while she was with Britney.
"He has cut Britney's home phone line and removed her cell phone chargers. He yells at her. He claims to control everything. Sam had told Britney that she was an unfit mother, a piece of trash and a whore, that she cares more about ADNAN, her current boyfriend, than she cares about her kids, and that she does not deserve the kids," The Sun quoted the document filed by Britney's mum, as stating.
The document stated Lutfi, as saying: "Adnan is gay ... Britney came into the room looking for Adnan ... Britney then asked me, 'Is Adnan gay?
The document also revealed that Britney's much trusted pal was constantly drugging her.
The document goes on to say that: "At one point Britney picked up a bottle of pills and read part of the label and asked us, 'What does insomnia mean?' Sam told her that the pills will help her stay awake.
"Sam told Jackie and me that he grinds up Britney's pills, which were on the counter and included Risperdal (an anti-psychotic drug for schizophrenia and bipolarity) and Seroquel. He told us that the doctor who is treating her now is trying to get her into a sleep-induced coma so that they could then give her drugs to heal her brain."
The 'Toxic' star's mother has also claimed in the documents that Lutfi encouraged Britney 'to do tequila shots.' She even said that before they left for the chemists on the night of the intervention, Sam gave her drugs upstairs 'to make her more light-hearted, happy, and fun.'
Lynne also claimed that in a dispute later that night, he allegedly threatened them against ousting him from Britney's life,
"If you try to get rid of me, she'll be dead." "I'm the one who spends 24/7 with your daughter. I sleep in cars outside her house so she can't leave. You people throw everyone under the bus."
It was also stated in the document that Britney "changed her three dogs' clothes many times" in an agitated state." She even said: "Can I see another psychiatrist so I can see my babies?"
To this Lutfi responded: "If I told you to take 10 pills a day, you should do what I tell you to see your babies," wrote Lynne Spears in the court documents.
Meanwhile, Lutfi denies all such claims by Spears' parents and said that he was the one who kept Britney off drugs as she battled for custody of her kids.
Lutfi said that the Spears family's attempt to keep him away from Britney "won't last" and that she will ultimately distance herself from them.
"They're never gonna be able to rule her forever," E!Online quoted him, as telling Us Weekly.
