Britney Spears Washington, May 1 (ANI): Britney Spears’ former manager Sam Lutfi has filed an appeal after a Los Angeles Superior Court judge ordered him to maintain his distance from the singer for three years.

The 34-year-old was slapped with a restraining order after Britney’s father, Jamie, alleged that Lutfi and lawyer Jon Eardley had attempted to challenge the validity of Jamie’s legal control over his daughter.

Jamie had further claimed that Lutfi, Britney’s close confidant during her personal meltdown, also arranged the smuggling of a cell phone to the pop star at a hotel.

Lutfi had then been ordered by the court to stay at least 100 yards away from the star, her two sons and her family members’ homes, and was also prohibited from contacting her and her kids, through phone, mail and email.

According to TMZ, Lutfi notified an L.A. court that he would appeal against the ruling that Spears’ restraining order against him was to be made permanent, reports Us magazine.

Byran Freedman, said that “the evidence showed it was Britney Spears reaching out to Mr. Lutfi and all he did was help her get a lawyer.” (ANI)
