Sam Lutfi won’t let some three-year restraining order keep him from playing Captain Save-A-Brit to the public. The former manager of Britney Spears has announced he’s going to appeal Tuesday’s verdict. According to his lawyer, Lutfi’s no drug-dealing vulture—just a good Samaritan trying to help an old friend.
“Never before in the history of the world has a restraining order been granted as a result of someone answering someone else’s cries for help,” Lutfi’s lawyer told TMZ. “The evidence showed it was Britney Spears reaching out to Mr. Lutfi and all he did was help her get a lawyer.” So far the court hasn’t bought his line—what ace does he have up his sleeve now?
