I know this is the wrong thread but I am sure Lutfi claimed he was a sober coach but never really explained what education or experience he had. 

I remember reading all this at the time and thought it was sus.

I recall that as well.

It's especially interesting considering the transcript of Larry's testimony from when he was subpoenaed by Kaplan for the custody trial...Larry knew a professional celebrity interventionist who was included in the group's conference calls.

Lutfi appears to possibly fall into roughly the same kind of category.

Thank you for sharing! Always so much knowledge when you post something.

I read on Meaner's accout that Blair Berk and Lufti apparently share many cases in common. Not just Britney. Are they even friends or it is just that people hire the same attorney when they want to fight the same guy? What a mistery.

September 11, 2010:

"“He (Lutfi) was extremely agitated about the fact that there had been a car that he had represented to Mercedes that had been requested by Ms. Spears which is a car that he had driven for his personal use,” said Berk.

Berk personally inventoried the vehicle and discovered a letter addressed to Britney from Jon Eardley, an attorney who has a permanent restraining order against him effective based on allegations he conspired to overthrow the conservatorship.  She did not specify what other items might have belonged to Britney from the car other than to say she returned what she deemed to belong to Britney and to Lutfi respectively."

...

"Berk’s involvement with Lutfi didn’t end in spring of 2008.  She testified in April 2009 that Lutfi texted her on the evening of Jan. 10, 2009 requesting that she meet with him.  Subsequent to the text message Lutfi made clear to her that there was “embarrassing information that he was fearful would be released about him.”  He said that unless Berk suppressed the information that “destructive and unflattering information would be released” about Jamie and Britney.

“I immediately contacted law enforcement because of the extortive nature of Mr. Lutfi’s threats.  I took action to continue to communicating with him because I felt, based on my unfortunately 20 years of dealing with alleged extortionists and those that would extort my clients, that he would continue in his threats, extortive threats,” Berk said."

"Her father, James Spears, was named conservator of Spears herself. His eyes teared when the decision was made. He and an attorney, Andrew Wallet, were name conservators of the estate.

The singer’s mother Lynne Spears, was also in court. The parents sat with attorney Blair Berk throughout the hearing and they smiled and embraced her after the announcement."

Sam Lutfi was involved in all four potential C-ships. Didn't Samuel Barth get a restraining order long before the others. Wasn't he the first victim?

Shouldn't Amanda Bynes be there somewhere too? 

Samuel Barth's case occurred in 2010...But I remember a Blender article from 2008 mentioning Danny Haines and a restraining order, if my memory serves me correctly?

September 10, 2010:

"Samuel Barth -- an aspiring actor/model -- claims Lutfi developed such an obsession toward him that he hacked into his email, Facebook and Twitter accounts and set out on a campaign to terrorize and vilify Barth's mother and other relatives."

Not directly Blair Berk related, but it is Lutfi related...

January 29, 2008:

"After claiming extortion, emotional blackmail and humiliation, Haines got a restraining order against Lutfi in April, claiming he had sent him harassing and threatening e-mails and text messages."

Not Blair Berk related, but Amanda Bynes doesn't have good things to say about Lutfi either...

October 18, 2014:

"Sam Lutfi is out to clear his name in the wake of Amanda Bynes' recent troubles.

The former manager of Britney Spears penned an essay for xoJane in which he explained why he sought to help the 28-year-old star last week, by convincing her to return to Los Angeles so her parents could place her under a psychiatric hold and get her treatment at a Pasadena hospital."

October 31, 2014:

"Today, a day after her release, the star has slammed Lutfi saying: "Hey guys, Sam Lutfi continues to hack my twitter. He is evil and needs to be stopped. I am getting a restraining order against him."

Yes, that's it! 

So they're all getting restraining orders, yet he still manages to be a" sober coach", "Hollywood operator" or whatever label he has at the moment and somehow get access to their lives. 

He was not working alone.
