Sam Lutfi is requesting freelance reporter Eric Mitchell submit a video he has of Jamie Spears cursing at him four years ago for his upcoming defamation trial against Britney and her parents, reports RadarOnline.com.
“Sam Lutfi’s attorney Joe Schleimer called me on Sunday morning and wants me to take the witness stand about a video I shot of Jamie Spears four years ago when Jamie cursed me out,” said Mitchell. “This was around the time that Britney was having her very public meltdowns, and I don’t blame him at all for cursing at me as he was going through so much at the time. I’m not inclined to turn over the video, nor voluntarily appear. If Sam wants me to testify, he will have to formally subpoena me.”
Lutfi is suing the Spears for defamation and breach of contract, claiming his reputation was irreparably damaged from Lynne’s book “Through The Storm.”
“Jury selection is scheduled to begin on October 1, and the trial is expected to last two weeks. The judge handling Brit’s conservatorship has ruled that she can’t testify at the trial because she isn’t competent enough to do so.,” says Radar.
Mitchell added: “I’m 100% Team Britney and wish her all the best.”
