Britney Spears' father has branded her ex-manager a "dangerous predator." Jamie Spears made the comments while giving his testimony at a Los Angeles court on Monday, where he was attempting to maintain a restraining order which keeps Sam Lutfi away from Britney.
Jamie - who is co-conservator of Britney's personal and professional affairs - said: "When Lutfi was in so-called control, she'd lost everything - her kids and career. I believe he's a predator, I believe he's very dangerous to her and causes her a lot of anguish and disbelief. We've asked him to go away before, and now he's coming back. We just want the man to go away. Just leave us alone."
Jamie also insists he will do everything in his power to keep Britney's ex-boyfriend paparazzo Adnan Ghalib away from the 27-year-old singer.
The concerned parent - who now runs every aspect of Britney's life, including monitoring her phone calls - also claims the pop star's security team recently confiscated a pre-paid phone which was given to her by Sam and Adnan.
In court papers, Sam denies he has been harassing Britney.
He claims the singer has been contacting him via text message, even though she is forbidden to do so by a court order.
The former manager admits he has passed messages to Britney via her hairdresser, but insists they were not harmful. However, Jamie claims he has received several threatening messages from someone known as 'citygalin310' and is adamant they are from Sam.
The hearing will resume on Wednesday.
