A lawsuit against Britney Spears and her parents but the entertainer's former manager has been thrown out by a judge.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Suzanne Bruguera on Thursday dismissed Sam Lufti's lawsuit against Spears, reports Reuters. Lufti had filed the suit against Spears citing defamation, a breach of contract as well as assault. While there were some juicy tidbits from the trial, ultimately there was not evidence to continue the trial.
In the two-week trial, Lufti released several bombshell allegations against Spears. Most notably, Lufti claims Spears' famous head shaving incident in 2007 was done in order to hide drug use. Lufti claimed Spears was hiding a crystal meth addiction.
The lawsuit stems from claims made in Lynne Spears' biography, “Through the Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family.” In the book, Lynne Spears discusses Britney's meltdown, her family, how fame affected Britney, younger sister Jamie Lynn Spears' pregnancy and also discussed Lufti's relationship with Britney.
In the book, Lynne Spears stated that Lufti had provided Britney with drugs while trying to isolate the the star singer from her family, which led to Lufti suing for defamation. Lufti had also filed suit to claim some of Spears' earnings, roughly 15 percent, during the time he was her manager, reports The Hollywood Reporter. The third lawsuit filed by Lufti claimed Jamie Spears, Britney's father, had attacked him in 2008, reports Reuters.
Bruguera dismissed all suits filed by Lufti against Britney and the Spears family. Lufti's attorneys had finished presenting their evidence on Tuesday, reports the Associated Press. Bruguera said there was not enough evidence to send it to the jury for a ruling and that dismissing the case was the “"the right thing to do," reports Reuters.
Lufti said he was going to appeal the ruling.
