Adnan Ghalib Sentenced To 45 Days In Jail

Nov 20, 2009 10:43 AM

adnanjail.jpg Hit me baby one more time!

Britney Spears' former boy toy, paparazzo Adnan Ghalib was sentenced to 45 days in county jail today after pleading no contest to hit-and-run charges. In case you've forgotten, Adnan reportedly ran over a process server with his car last February and then fled the scene of the accident. Oops!

Adnan was initially charged with three felonies, but the assault with a deadly weapon and battery charges were dropped as a part of his plea deal. Adnan will also be put on probation for 36 months and he has to complete 52 weeks of anger management classes along with 45 days of hard labor. Sounds like fun!

Adnan Ordered To Stay Away From Brit

Mar 18, 2009 10:17 AM

Britney Spears AdnanRestrainingOrder.jpgA judge is set to issue a long-term restraining order that would prohibit Brit's ex, Adnan Ghalib from being anywhere near the pop star.

Brit's dad Jamie is the one who asked the judge for the protection order, according to the Associated Press.

Ghalib was apparently a no-show at a hearing on Wednesday and hasn't filed an objections to the restraining order, which could make it illegal for Adnan to contact Britney for as long as three years.

Jamie Spears believes Adnan, along with Britney's former manager Sam Lutfi, have tried to undermine his role as conservator of Brit's personal and business affairs.

Britney Spears ghalib012909_01_X17.jpgThe Los Angeles County District Attorney's office has issued an arrest warrant for Adnan Ghalib.

Britney's ex is being charged with felony assault for allegedly trying to run over a process server.

Here's what the DA's office said in a statement:

    A former boyfriend of singer Britney Spears was charged today with felony assault with a deadly weapon and hit-and-run after he allegedly rammed his car into a man serving a restraining order against him.

    Adnan Ghalib, 36, (dob 9-4-72), was charged in a felony complaint for arrest warrant with one felony count each of assault with a deadly weapon, battery and hit-and-run, with the special allegations use of a deadly weapon, a car, and great bodily injury, said Deputy District Attorney Bill Ryder.

    On Feb. 11, the victim was allegedly serving a temporary restraining order obtained by Spears’s father on paparazzi photographer Adnan Ghalib’s Encino apartment complex. Ghalib allegedly got into his car and drove it toward the victim.

    To avoid being penned against a trash truck, the victim allegedly jumped on the hood of Ghalib’s Mercedes and hung on as the defendant swerved the car. The victim later fell off, breaking his wrist and sustaining other injuries. The defendant allegedly drove away without stopping.

Prosecutors are asking bail be set at $110,000. If convicted, Ghalib faces up to seven years in prison.

Adnan should turn himself in!!! This is serious stuff, y'all!!!!

More Legal Troubles For Brit's Former Boy Toy?!?!

Feb 17, 2009 02:25 PM

Britney Spears BritneyCourt.jpgWill Sam and Adnan have to continue to stay away from Britney and her family?!?

We'll find out on Monday when a judge is set to review the temporary restraining orders Brit's dad got against her former manager Sam Lutfi and boyfriend Adnan Ghalib.

Meanwhile, Brit's former boy toy could have more legal problems to deal with. According to Radaronline.com, investigators looking into the allegations that Adnan tried to run over a process server with his car plan to hand the case over to the District Attorney's office next week.

According to a law enforcement source, Adnan hasn't exactly been cooperating with the investigation.

"We haven't been able to contact Mr. Ghalib regarding the incident. It's up to the District Attorney whether to reject, or accept the case, ask for more information, or refer to the City Attorney," the source said.

The former pap could be charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon.

Did Britney Hire A New Lawyer?!
Or Did Sam Do It FOR Britney?

Jan 30, 2009 08:58 PM

Britney Spears britdocs.jpg


X17online has obtained the court documents in which Britney's father, as her conservator, has requested a temporary restraining order against Sam Lutfi and Adnan Ghalib and here are some interesting excerpts ...

All the stuff that others have reported is true -- the paper cites instances in which an unknown person instant messaged Britney's father and demanded to speak to him. The papers allege that Sam said defamatory things about Jamie and that Sam had contacted Brit's attorney Blair Berk to set up a meeting regarding the conservatorship.

But here's what the others HAVEN'T reported ...

Check out this language regarding Sam's alleged efforts to hire a NEW ATTORNEY for Britney on her behalf:

    On January 27, 20098, attorney John T. Anderson of the Law Office of John T. Anderson sent counsel for Mr. Seaprs a proposed Ex Part Petition seeking an order authorizing Ms. Spears to retain him as her attorney in the conservatorship proceedings and to relieve as counsel Samuel D. Ingham III, Ms. Spears' PVP counsel.

    On January 27, 2009, Mr. Anderson told counsel for Mr. Spears that he had initially been contacted by Mr. Eardly about three or four weeks previously for assistance in preparing legal papers, and that he spoke with Mr. Lutfi about two or three weeks after that. Mr. Anderson said that he told Mr. Lutfi that he could not proceed unless Ms. Spears signed an engagement letter and other documents, and that he provided Mr. Lutfi with copies of such documents so that Mr. Lutfi could have those documents signed by Mrs. Spears. Mr. Lutfi thereafter provided Mr. Anderson with an Ex Parte Petition, and engagement letter, and a Nomination of Counsel that purport to be signed by Ms. Spears.

    Over the past month, Ms. Spears has had numerous telephone conversations with both Mr. Lutfi and Mr. Ghalib and has exchanged numerous text messages with both of them.


So that means either Britney has tried to hire a new attorney, theoretically to help her oust her dad OR Sam forged Brit's signature to put a new lawyer in place! Either way - this is HUGE!

Is Jamie afraid that Sam and Adnan are convincing Brit to turn her back on him? Or are these guys really a threat? I have a feeling we'll find out soon! Stay tuned ...

Who REALLY Filed The Restraining Order Against Sam & Adnan???

Jan 30, 2009 05:15 PM

Britney Spears jamierestrain.jpg

Though it's being reported (even by us) that BRITNEY filed a restraining order today against her former lover Adnan Ghalib and her ex-manager/assistant/BFF Sam Lutfi, was it REALLY Brit who did it?

Of course we all know it's Brit's dad Jamie who's in control right now -- of everything personal, financial, professional, and legal -- so if Brit WANTED to, COULD she file a restraining order? -- NO!

Steven Cron of Cron, Israels & Stark in LA told X17online:

    "Any such paperwork or request would have to go through the conservator. She is not considered legally capable so she is dependant on the conservator to assist her with any such requests or any such proceedings."

So any legal documents would have to be filed by JAMIE, NOT BY BRIT, since he is currently her legal conservator.

The AP report the papers also restrict attorney Jon Eardley, who is said to represent Lutfi, from contacting Brit. But in fact an X17online reporter heard a recorded conversation between Britney and Eardley from last year, in which Britney told the attorney she wanted "her life back" and that she would accept his help in accomplishing that.

Their report says the papers claim Lutfi and Ghalib, through Eardley, were trying to gain control of Brit's affairs.

So was Jamie simply carrying out the wishes of his daughter by filing this supposed restraining order or is it JAMIE trying to keep Sam and Adnan away?

X17 XCLUSIVE - Speaking Of Adnan...

Jan 30, 2009 03:50 PM


Adnan Ghalib ghalib012909_071.jpg

These shots of Adnan Ghalib were snapped yesterday (just 24 hours before Jamie Spears Britney filed a restraining order against him and former manager/BFF Sam Lutfi), and it looks like the pap had plenty of other things on his mind besides his famous ex!

Adnan was at the corner of Highland and Melrose when his car broke down, and as an X17 photog took pictures of the landing strip loving paparazzo, he screamed, "I was coming to say hi, but now that you take my picture, f@&# off!"

Wonder how he feels about the whole restraining order thing?
