In an unbelievably retarded legal move, Sam Lutfi has filed a lawsuit against Britney, Jamie and Lynne Spears claiming “libel, defamation, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress and breach of contract.” TMZ reports:
According to the papers, Sam claims Jamie and Lynn “launched a campaign of lies and intimidation designed to destroy Lutfi and drive him out of Britney’s life.”
In the lawsuit, Sam claims he was standing in Britney’s kitchen on January 29, 2008 when Jamie stormed into the house. Lutfi alleges Jamie yelled at him, claiming Sam made a rude comment to Lynne the night before. Then, Sam claims, Jamie “intentionally punched him in the chest” and threatened to kill him if he ever heard Sam make a rude comment about Lynne or any member of the Spears family again.
All the claims of libel and defamation spring from Lynne’s book, “Through the Storm.” Lutfi says since the publication of the book, he “has been subjected to unfathomable amounts of ridicule and public scorn.”
As for the breach of contract, Sam claims he had a verbal contract with Britney for 15% commission and wants his unpaid management fees. Considering she’s been declared mentally handicapped by the state, that’s the legal equivalent of me saying I have a verbal contract with Grimace for all the free cheeseburgers I can eat. Well played, Matlock.
