Attorneys for Britney Spears are requesting a temporary restraining order against ex-manager Sam Lutfi.
In the filing, the 37-year-old pop star is requesting protection for herself, as well as her two sons, her father, Jamie Spears, and mother, Lynne Spears.
The request comes about two weeks after Spears was released from a mental health facility.
In the documents, Britney and her family claim Lutfi has been sending harassing and threatening texts and tweets to them. They also claim Lutfi’s actions have caused “severe mental trauma” while interfering with Britney’s life.
The singer’s legal team also claims Lutfi is trying to interfere with Britney’s conservatorship by using “vigilante action, bribes and release of private information.” They want the restraining order to “prevent future harm and further psychological trauma” to Britney.
In text messages allegedly sent from Lutfi to Lynne, Lutfi wrote, “You are the one that’s been breaking your back for your children your entire life and yet you are still having to answer to people that have done nothing for your family yet they are in charge.”
