Britney Spears' Father Calls Lutfi A 'Predator'

LOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - Britney Spears' father, Jamie Spears, asked a court to extend restraining orders against his daughter's former boyfriend and manager.
The elder Spears called Britney's former manager Osama "Sam" Lutfi a "predator" and once again alleged that Lutfi had drugged his daughter and said he thought he was a danger to his family.
Spears was also questioned as to whether he was aware of a recent phone conversation between his daughter and Lutfi made on a prepaid cell phone given to the pop singer.
Mr. Spears said he monitors his daughter's cell phone access and was unaware of the contact.
Lutfi's attorney said after the hearing that the testimony failed to demonstrate that a restraining order was necessary against his client.
"A restraining order is for severe harassing conduct that causes substantial emotional distress," Attorney Bryan Freedman said, adding that Spears' testimony "doesn't remotely come close to that."
A judge is set to rule on the restraining orders on Wednesday.
Lutfi, Ghalib and Britney Spears did not appear during Monday's hearing.
