This is an interesting twist in the crazy world of Britney Spears.
Sam Lufti's sister testified yesterday in court for a hearing regarding the restraining order against her brother, and said that she snuck a cell phone to Britney, so that the pop star could get in contact with her former manager behind her dad's back -- and that this little sneaky plan was all Brit's idea!
"[Britney] told me she wanted to get a hold of Sam," Christina Lufti, 25, told the court. "She wanted him to help her find a lawyer, and wanted someone to get a prepaid cell phone to her. She was scared because her father was blackmailing her with visitation rights over her kids."
Brit and Christina supposedly met in a sauna in a hotel gym, where the girl gave Britney a cell phone, telling her it was from Sam and the pop star's ex Adnan Ghalib. Britney hid the phone in her locker and, according to Christina, asked, "Will Sam be able to help me?'"
The phone was later found by Brit's security guard and taken away (like she's some criminal -- or a baby!).
Jamie Spears' laywer Blair Berk is singing a different tune. The attorney says Britney "was in such fear [of Sam], she asked if I could get him arrested, to keep him away from her," and denies that the singer was seeking outside legal help.
Sam's legal rep says his client was doing nothing but being Britney's good bud. "Sam's only crime was trying to help out a friend," Bryan Freedman told People.com. "When someone asks for your help, that person is obviously not scared of you or in need of a restraining order."
Hmmmm, who to believe? I always got a creepy feeling from Sam, and Jamie has come out of all of this smelling like a rose, but things aren't always as they seem, I guess.
