Mom says Britney was drugged

A restraining order in Los Angeles aimed at Britney Spears' friend and manager Sam Lutfi claims that he drugged her, took over her life and finances and controlled the paparazzi who pursued her for months, Associated Press reports.

The order, based on a lengthy declaration from Miss Spears' mother, Lynne, says that Miss Spears met Mr. Lutfi, 33, in October and that "Mr. Lutfi has essentially moved into Britney's home and has purported to take control of her life, home and finances."

The documents released by the court yesterday asked him to stay away from her and stop the harassment. In a section of the order that detailed previous harassment, Lynne Spears said, "Mr. Lutfi drugged Britney, he has cut Britney's home phone lines and removed her cell phone chargers. He yells at her. He claims to control everything - Britney's business manager, her attorneys and the security guards at the gate."

Much of the six-page declaration centers on the night of Jan. 28, with Mrs. Spears outlining increasingly bizarre behavior through the night. She said that she, her husband and a friend went to Britney's home but security guards kept everyone but her out. Once inside, Mrs. Spears said she found several paparazzi. She said there had been "a big fight" with Mr. Lutfi and that her daughter was crying. She said that during the evening, "Sam had told Britney she was an unfit mother, a piece of trash and a whore, that she cares more about Adnan [Ghalib], her current boyfriend, than she cares about her kids and that she does not deserve her kids.
