Britney’s mom, Lynne Spears, is in hot water after fibbing the truth about her whereabouts and “refusing to comply when a formal Notice of Deposition was served” in the Sam Lutfi libel and slander case, according to court documents obtained by BreatheHeavy.com.
Lutfi is suing Lynne Spears after she “falsely accused [Lutfi] of attempting to drug Britney ‘into a coma,'” says the docs. He plans on forcing Lynne to submit a deposition in the case by today.
Lynne told her lawyers she couldn’t partake in the deposition in November because she was “out of the country” (claiming she was in South America on Britney’s tour), but in actuality she attended Jamie Lynn’s country performance in Nashville, Tennessee – telling People magazine “I am so emotional tonight” after seeing the show.
Lynne’s defense claimed it was her intention to leave the country.
The court docs state:
“Mrs. Spears’ attorneys originally gave the impression they would voluntarily produce Mrs. Spears in Los Angeles to save legal fees – provided Plaintiff’s counsel was patient. That was a dilatory tactic and they never provided a date. Ultimately, Plaintiff’s counsel formally noticed the Lynne Spears deposition for Baton Rouge, Louisiana, but Mrs. Spears refused to be deposed, falsely claiming she was out of the country, when she wasn’t.
In past court docs, Judge Zaven Sinanian ordered Lynne Spears to be deposed on December 13, 2011.
Lutfi’s tried having Britney deposed, but was denied by the judge because she is under conservatorship. Lutfi also wanted access to results of drug tests Britney took in her past custody battle with ex-husband, Kevin Federline, as well as baby monitor reports, but that was also denied.
Lutfi is now requiring Lynne to appear for deposition TODAY.
