Britney set for court showdown with her parentsMarch 2nd, 2008 - 4:43 pm ICT by admin
London, Mar 2 (ANI): Britney Spears is set for a court date with her parents in an attempt to regain control of her life.
According to a source, the singer reckons that she can now handle her life on her own.
“Britney feels fit enough to make her own decisions but is overruled by her father. She is fighting to get control,” News of the World quoted the source, as saying.
The 26-year-old will also appear as a witness in a battle to overturn a restraining order taken out by her dad Jamie and mum Lynne against her former manager Sam Lutfi, who has been banned from going within 250 yards of Britney after her parents accused him of drugging her with prescription pills and cutting her phone lines.
However, Lutfi wants to prove that the claims were wrong and has secretly contacted Britney via a third party to ask for her support.
“I am going to call Britney to the stand so she can tell the world how I was helping her, Lutfi told a pal.
“I am innocent. I am Britney’s friend and would never hurt her,” he added.
Lutfi is reportedly preparing documents for the hearing at LA Superior Court on March 17, in which he’ll claim Britney had access to drugs from other visitors and fears her life is being taken over. (ANI)
