Manager: Spears’s Dad Punched Me

Another day in the courtroom and more accusations from Sam Lutfi, Britney Spears’s former manager who is suing the pop star for breach of contract. Lutfi claims Brit’s dad, Jamie, lunged at him and chased him around her gated Beverly Hills mansion. “He cornered me in the kitchen, punched me in the solar plexus, and threatened to kill me,” Lutfi testified. The incident allegedly took place in January 2008, around the time Britney was being involuntarily committed to UCLA’s psych ward for the second time in a month. The Spears family, in return, alleges that Lutfi cut her phone lines to keep control over her money.
