Britney’s ex-manager, Sam Lutfi could be behind the #FreeBritney movement, according to court documents Lutfi has been harassing Britney’s family and posting "disparaging and threatening comments" on social media. Lutfi texted Britney’s mother, Lynne Spears, about not being more involved in Britney’s conservatorship, even offering to pay her $1,000 to "disrupt and take over" the conservatorship.
Britney’s family is worried about Lufti releasing private information, including “trunks” of Britney’s personal items he obtained while managing her. The restraining order against him would "prevent future harm and further psychological trauma." If approved Lutfi would have to stay 200 yards away from Britney and her family, including no texts, emails or phone calls.
