Sam Lutfi Hit With Another Restraining OrderSeptember 11, 2010
Ex-manager, Osama “Sam” Lutfi, was slapped with a restraining order today, and this time it’s not from Britney.
The suit, filed by Samuel Barth, an aspiring actor/model, claims Lutfi developed such an obsession with Barth 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,” according to TMZ.com.
Barth says he moved to L.A. from Virginia in January and rented an apartment near Lutfi, eventually moving in to Lutfi’s residence. The two became friends, but according to the legal documents obtained by TMZ, Lutfi became obsessed, attempting to diagnose Barth with “various mental and emotional problems and forcefully suggesting solutions.”
Barth tried to distance himself from Lutfi and that’s when the alleged campaign of terror began. Barth claims in his declaration Lutfi tried to drive a wedge between Barth and his mother, calling her “evil,” a “*****” and “Satan,” among other things. Lutfi sent emails and texts to Barth’s mom, telling her how she “viciously destroyed” the lives of her kids. Lutfi emailed Barth’s underage sister (about the mom and aunt), “I wish those two sick women the most evil and painful death possible.” Again, similar to Sam trying to turn Britney against her mom and dad.
TMZ also claims Lutfi attacked Barth’s brother, calling him “a waste of human flesh” and a “******’ loser.”
A judge granted Barth a temporary restraining order today, and banned Lutfi from hacking into various accounts of Barth and his family.
A hearing is set for September 28 to determine if there is enough evidence to make the temporary restraining order permanent.
