Roberta Romero testifies in restraining order case
Britney Spears’ hairdresser testified yesterday (February 24) that the singer’s former manager Sam Lutfi scared her, and that she asked that he stop contacting her.
Lutfi reportedly tried to get in touch with Spears by sending text messages to Romero, and asking her to relay the messages to Britney.
Spears’ father Jamie was seeking to have temporary restraining orders extended yesterday against Lutfi, paparazzo Adnan Ghalib and attorney Jon Eardley. The restraining orders were extended to April 1.
Romero said that Lutfi told Spears her was trying to “free” her, and that Spears asked him to stop contacting her. She said that the singer is scared of him and that Romero should not be in touch with him, reports the Associated Press.
Among the text messages Lutfi sent included one saying “Very close to getting her free now.” Jamie Spears read aloud a number of other texts in court yesterday.
He also claimed once again that Lutfi tried to drug Spears in order to control her.
