Britney Spears 'Was Scared Of Former Manager'

Britney Spears' ex-manager Sam Lutfi scared the pop singer, her hairdresser has told a Los Angeles court.

Lutfi - along with Britney's ex-boyfriend Adnan Ghalib and attorney Jon Eardley - is not permitted from contacting the singer due to a restraining order and was described by her father as a "predator" this week.

The Toxic star's hairdresser Roberta Romero told the court on Wednesday that Lutfi had sent her text messages intended to convey messages to Britney.

"She told me she's scared of him and not to talk to him," Ms Romero explained.

Superior court judge Aviva K Bobb extended the temporary restraining orders against Lutfi, Ghalib and Eardley until April 1st and is considering making long-term orders against the trio.

Britney's father Jamie brought the case to court having been granted conservatorship of his daughter's affairs and told the court Lutfi is a "predator" and a "danger" to his family.

Lutfi's legal team retorted that Spears' testimony was not sufficient to prove "severe harassing conduct that causes substantial emotional distress", the grounds for a restraining order.

Ghalib was also in court on Wednesday, in Van Nuys, Los Angeles, to plead guilty to having struck a process server - who was attempting to deliver a restraining order - with his Mercedes earlier this month.
