Was Sam Lutfi hired by Team CON?

Lutfi's PR guy, Michael Sands (who formerly worked for Kevin Federline's attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan) and Lynne Spears have both claimed that Lutfi was inserted into Britney's life "in October of 2007."

right, but Lynne's book wasn't entirely trustworthy. Considering Lutfi was the one who set the legal foundations, Lynne's book is the written testament for that legal foundation.

Lutfi kinda admitted that he knew Britney before then with the leaked emails.

The fact that Kaplan's PR echoed the same argument doesn't bode well for Kevin and Kaplan either.

In February of 2007, Britney's assistant Kalie first encountered Lutfi.

[From In Touch, print edition, March 10, 2008]:

"Kalie Machado claims that while she was Britney’s assistant, she received a call from a man “at a restricted number” who said he was a private investigator working for Brit’s ex husband Kevin Federline. That man was Sam. “He said he had incriminating evidence on Britney and he was going to hand it over to me,” she recalls. “We arranged to meet in a Santa Monica Starbucks.”

Kalie was nervous, so she brought her roommate with her. She says she spent 20 minutes listening to Sam talk and when she demanded to see the evidence, he instead “asked all kinds of stalkerish questions – like when we leave the house and where Britney and I went.”

Finally, Kalie realized that Sam had nothing and left. “I got more calls from Sam after that,” she remembers, “but I just ignored them.”

Kalie stopped working for Britney… in February, 2007 and moved to San Francisco. Months later, she says she saw a photo on the Internet that made her stomach drop. “It was Britney, standing next to the man I met in Starbucks – Sam Lutfi. I got a chill down my spine.”

Interesting. Especially the fact he would introduce himself as a private investigator for KFed.

If Sam Lutfi was at any time paid to assist in what appears to be a multi-million-dollar racket, who was (or still is) paying him to do so?

It's Lutfi's modus operandi. Amanda Bynes' case comes to mind. Her parents supported him. He tricked Amanda into getting in rehab. After getting what they wanted, Amanda Bynes' parents cut off relationship with him.

So, it's obvious he was Britney's team way to keep her under control after she fired Larry and cut off Lynne and Jamie. It makes sense. Larry was pushing the rehab story. Britney's parents and even Fe were supporting Larry (did they know the whole story?). Lutfi would "help" Britney out when no one else could.

And what you're showing here also sheds light on the role KFed and consequently the family court might have had on the cship. I'm starting to be sure KFed ain't as innocent.

I just don't think he's being paid still. I think that, whatever relationship he might have had with Lynne, Lou, Jamie, Kaplan, was over in 2008. He contacted Britney under tough discretion after the cship in 2008 and 2009. He sued Britney, Jamie and Lynne after his attempts failed but it just seemed he and his lawyer used the trial to prove Britney was competent and wasn't okay with the cship. He kept burning money throughout the years. I just don't see. That TRO was useful in 2008 to prevent Britney from fighting off the cship. Now they don't need TROs to keep the cship going.

 

Someone should review WHY Lutfi wasn't criminally charged or investigated. It's really the key to the cship.

Those of us who followed Britney's story in real-time during 2007 and 2008 know what a dark figure Sam Lutfi is. It's time for the fanbase to consider that Lutfi may have been hired by someone on T

Thank you for this. Recently, I had started to suspect Lutfi is or was probably part of the con because it's so odd how he continues to be the zit that just won't go away and yet her team has done ver

I wanna cry I can’t take this anymore - why did the world decided to end her soul? I hope she can be free one day.

With this statement he would incriminate himself and the prosecutor should have acted. In the USA everyone can simply mix other people's medicines in their food ? This is a criminal offense in every country in the world

I don’t remember ever reading the article about Sam talking about how only he, Britney and her psychologist knows what triggered her in to having BP..what the heck happened in 2002 besides her breakup with Justin? (This isn’t a question to y’all, obviously no one knows.) off topic, kinda, what happened to x17? I used to wake up before going to HS and checked their website every day to check up on her, they never wrote any negative comments about her like TMZ.

3) This was Kevin’s plan to get the kids away from her


It sure seems that way, doesn't it?

We have to consider...

Which players change or can be swapped out? (Jamie, Lynne...It doesn't matter which of them is the conservator.)

Which players remain? (Kevin, Mark Vincent Kaplan, the lawyers for the conservatorship...Possibly Lou...She's gone, but does she still have her hands on the money?)

Great work! Thank you!

Maybe when Michael Sands left Mark Vincent Kaplan, he wanted to help Britney, of course, not because he was a good-hearted man, but because he saw more benefit for himself if he switches sides ... He hired Jon Eardley (I don't know how Lutfi got in his team, maybe Sam was something like a double agent or he for real changed sides temporarily at that time?)  and then Sands started a PR campaign for the press like this one -> "Sands claimed the theft is on a grand scale, involving racketeering, wire fraud and money laundering, and that the theft occurred prior to the conservatorship taking place and continues still."+ "Lives have been threatened," Sands said. "People are being intimidated. It's terrorism. I don't want to make any accusations, but we're talking the financial r*** of Britney Spears." + leaked Britney's phone call, where she said that her father was threatening her that she would not see her boys... and etc

I do not see how this information can be beneficial for team Con.

But all in all team Con was too tough for Michael Sands and Jon Eardley, they could not beat them, so they quickly gave up. Eardley  even got into trouble because of it...

 


I came across an article where Mark Vincent Kaplan wanted to depose Michael Sands...Basically, because he wanted to know what Sands "knew" after he parted ways with MVK. He wanted Sands to produce copies of all emails, etc...But then nothing ever happened out of it. (Why does nothing ever happen when it comes to Lutfi?) I'll post it in this thread if I come across it.

It made me think...

What if Eardley was "Plan B" in case Jamie's conservatorship fell through? Lutfi was more or less urging Lynne to become conservator just recently in that "leaked" text (err, phone message)...So I wouldn't be shocked if Lutfi was going to attempt to swoop in as a conservator himself in 2008 by setting Britney up with Eardley.

That would mean that Lutfi never really "switched sides" and was still working for (or with) Mark Vincent Kaplan...The goal being to keep Britney in a conservatorship.

EDIT:

Here's an article about Sands being deposed:

That's exactly why I'm wondering if Lutfi was working for someone on Team CON.

It would be nice to see the police report with the LAPD...Was this incident even reported to them?

Kaplan's PR had already left Kaplan and had gone to work with Sam Lutfi and Jon Eardley when he said it. 

February 12, 2008:

"Sam was inserted into Britney's life in October," by whom, Sands would not say, "after Britney had already shaved her head and been in two drug rehabs. Sam became her manager, and then her close friend. A manager does get paid." Sands went on to insist that Sam never asked, much less insisted, on being paid more than he deserved as someone in Brit's employ."

Source: https://www.x17online.com/2008/02/x17_xclusive_sam_sets_the_record_straight

Lynne then went on to echo "October" line in her book, which wasn't released until September 16, 2008...It doesn't appear in her declaration from February 6, 2008, unless I'm missing it:

Declaration (full text): https://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/story?id=4249744&page=1

Either way, it almost seems as if Lynne and Lutfi talked about that "October" date beforehand, so they could keep their stories straight. 

"...after Britney had already shaved her head and been in two drug rehabs."

That's a lie...He appeared in February, before the second rehab...Unless he appeared between the first trip to Promises and the second trip to Promises. Only then would that statement be accurate.

That's what I thought, too...

Until @DuranDuran posted this story from The Blast from 2019:

https://theblast.com/britney-spears-sam-lutfi-restraining-order-conservatorship/

If you read the "texts" (which actually appear to be a transcript of a phone call where Lynne is on the other end of the line) it doesn't appear that Lutfi is urging for an end to the conservatorship...It appears as if he is encouraging Lynne to become the conservator herself.

https://theblast.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/0506_Britney_Spears_Texts.pdf

For what purpose? What's in it for him if he's working alone?

Yes, she was.

She was prescribed the medications three days earlier by a psychiatrist who she'd been ordered to visit by the family court.

Does anyone have a copy of Lutfi's court documents? From his lawsuit against Britney and her parents that was settled in 2016?

I know I've seen them before...And I don't want to have to drag out old hard drives just to hunt them down.

WHOA!

I'm going over Lynne's declaration about Lutfi, and am noticing things that I've never noticed before.

1) This E! article from February 5, 2007 says:

"In her request for a harassment order, Lynne says her daughter met Lutfi, whose full first name is Osama, "in or about October 2007" and that he has "essentially moved into Britney's home and has purported to take control of her life, home and finances.""

Article: https://www.eonline.com/news/57411/lynne_sam_drugged_controlled_britney

2) The full declaration has been removed from the E! site, but is still available on the ABC News site. Do you see anywhere in the actual declaration the phrase "in or about October 2007" or any mention of the word October?

Declaration: https://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/story?id=4249744&page=1

...

Has anyone ever seen the full restraining order application against Lutfi? Is the phrase "in or about October 2007" mentioned elsewhere in the application, outside of Lynne's declaration?

If not, E! inserted that phrase themselves. :nopingout_meme:

How strange that Michael Sands, speaking on behalf of Sam Lutfi, would echo that statement again days later...even though we know that Lutfi first appeared on the scene in February of 2007, a full year earlier...

February 12, 2008:

"Sam was inserted into Britney's life in October," by whom, Sands would not say, "after Britney had already shaved her head and been in two drug rehabs. Sam became her manager, and then her close friend. A manager does get paid." Sands went on to insist that Sam never asked, much less insisted, on being paid more than he deserved as someone in Brit's employ."

Here's another lie...

In her declaration, Lynne writes...

"This past Monday night (Jan. 28), Britney's father, Jamie, and I (in separate cars) went to Britney's house in Beverly Hills because we had heard news reports that Britney had just been in a big fight with Sam Lufti aka Sam Lufti ("sam"), the man who has inserted himself into my daughter's life, home and finances, and that she was crying."

She is referring to this night:

https://www.x17online.com/2008/01/britneys_breakdown_a_timeline

Later in the declaration, after accusing Lutfi of crushing Britney's meds and putting them in her food, she says...

"I did not see Britney again until I arrived at her house on Wednesday night after Sam called me and told me to come to the house."

That is a lie. Apparently, the next morning, Lynne met Britney at a Mercedes dealership to sign some papers, and then they met Sam Lutfi for lunch at the Beverly Hills Hotel!

"After the hellish night she endured, Britney spent the day indulging herself - and it seems to be having the desired effect! Brit's first stop was the Mercedes dealership, where she and her mother signed a few papers. From there, the pair met up with Sam at the Beverly Hills Hotel for lunch...We're also quite pleased to see Lynne and Sam getting along - after the reports of animosity between Britney's parents and Sam, we think it's great to see Lynne making an effort to get along with her daughter's friends!"

That's one of them!

The kinds of things I'm looking for in these documents:

- the date Lutfi claims he entered Britney's life
- the date he claims he discovered "m***" in her home
- any other info that doesn't jive with the Spears' version of events

Something very odd that I'd forgotten about all of these years...

One day before Jamie applies for the temporary conservatorship on February 1st, Lynne applies for a restraining order against Lutfi.

She writes in her declaration that Lutfi was drugging her daughter on the night of Monday, January 28th...but then doesn't bother visiting Britney again until Sam summons her to the house on the night of Wednesday, January 30th.

That night, X17 reported that there had been a suicide attempt...I'd forgotten all about this, since the second 5150 came on January 31st...but it was the early morning hours of the 31st, at around 1 am or 2 am. (I was up watching it unfold in real time that night.) So really, it was the night of Wednesday, January 30th.

https://www.x17online.com/2008/01/britney_suicide_attempt_the_hours_before

Question...

If a man is drugging your daughter and you're frightened enough to go after a restraining order...Why would you wait two full days to visit her again? And why only visit her after the gossip blogs begin reporting that there's been a suicide attempt? :watrusayin_britney_xfactor_confused_shocked_surprised_um_what:

Also...

Lynne fills the entire declaration with information about what happened two days before the second 5150, but makes no mention whatsoever of the suicide attempt or what actually transpired in the house directly before the ambulance arrived. It's as if the two days that have gone by haven't even occurred.

It's downright bizarre.

According to Lufti himself - when he  took the stand in his defamation lawsuit against Brit's parents back in October 2012 -  he first met Spears at an LA nightclub in May 2007.

He told the court that she struck up a conversation with him first, when she bl**tly asked him if she could have the hat he was wearing (he always wears a hat because he is balding). Lufti said he told her "no" and that Britney liked that he refused her request as she doesn't often get told "no" to her face. He further explained to the court that they hit it off that night, and she started calling and texting him from that moment on.

Whether this is true of not is debatable.

In May 2007, House of Blues was showcasing Britney's M+M’s act by night. While Ali Simms was busy stocking up on wigs and clothes for the comeback by day.

If anyone knows when (and how) Brit and Sam met it's Ali. 

Maybe it's time for Jordan to do an interview with Ali!

Wow, I didn't know that. Thank you!

Personally, I don't think Eardley was "Plan B"... I doubt that team con needed to go to such an extent and rock the boat with such a risky PR campaign that was launched by Eardley and Sands, when they could have just replaced James with "nominal Jodi" without undue risk and much quieter, especially when Britney's case was sealed until 2019.

Since Sands broke away from MKV, maybe, team con planted Sam in Michael's team as an intelligencer... Because once again, as you said, Sam was the only one of three who came out of it without much consequences.
