Britney Spears wants no more of Osama 'Sam' Lutfi

LOS ANGELES — Just one week after Britney Spears got news she had been granted increased visitation with her children, the pop princess' turn around got another thumbs up this week.
According to lawyers for Spears, they will no longer seek to extend a restraining order keeping Spears away from former manager Sam Lutfi... because she no longer wants to see him.
In one of the stranger developments in Spears' downhill spiral, which saw the pop star placed under psychiatric evaluation earlier this year, the 26-year-old pop singer was photographed at drug stores and gas stations in the wee hours of the morning with Lutfi, who had been acting as her manager.
The family argued Lufti was a danger to the singer and, according to The Associated Press, under the conservatorship father Jaime was awarded earlier this year, Lutfi was ordered not to come within 250 yards of Spears.
According to Spears' attorney, that order is no longer necessary, because Spears has made it clear she doesn't want him in her life.
"Britney has made clear to everyone that she does not want to be further harassed or contacted in any way by Osama 'Sam' Lutfi, now or at anytime in the future," Spears' attorney Samuel D. Ingham III said in a statement to AP.
For the time being, Lutfi seems content respecting her wishes.
Earlier this week, Spears was awarded increased visitation with her kids. According to The Los Angeles Times, ex-husband Kevin Federline will retain full custody of the kids – but she’ll pay more money, and get increased visitation.
The pop star currently has supervised visitation with her children – Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1 – three days and one night a week. The new order would give her a second overnight with the kids during the week and Spears will up her alimony payments to Federline by $5,000 per month. Gay Link Content
