Hot Water ... Britney Spears' manager Sam Lufti is facing allegations he drugged the singer, says Lynne Spears
BRITNEY Spears' manager Sam Lufti is facing allegations he drugged the singer after her mother obtained a restraining order to keep him away from the star.
Reports from the US today reveal details of a declaration by Spears' mother, Lynne, outlining Mr Lufti's control of her daughter and her finances.
The Associated Press says documents just released by a Los Angeles court demand he now stay away from the 26-year-old and stop harassing her.
Spears, who has been in a downward spiral for months, culminating in the loss of visitation rights to her children, is in psychiatric care in LA, and her father has obtained control of her assets while she is undergoing treatment.
In her declaration, Lynne Spears reportedly says: "Mr Lutfi drugged Britney, he has cut Britney's home phone lines and removed her cell phone chargers.
"He yells at her. He claims to control everything - Britney's business manager, her attorneys and the security guards at the gate."

If this is true it doesn't suprise me one bit. Wonder if he really was the one who broke into Britney's home recently. I'd love to read more about this guy and his past dealings. Did her downfall begin when he started on the scene as her manager?
