Britney Spears' one-time boyfriend Adnan Ghalib took the witness stand in
Sam Lutfi's defamation trial against the singer's mother on Tuesday (30Oct12)
and testified she asked him to blame her daughter's manager for her 2008
downfall. Lutfi is suing Lynne Spears for things she wrote about him in her
memoirs and now it seems the svengali has the support of Britney's paparazzo ex.
Ghalib, who was subpoenaed to appear in court, revealed Lynne Spears told him to
lie about Lutfi in order to make him look like the guy who caused Britney's
mental breakdown. He said, "She requested that I say Sam Lutfi was responsible
for Britney Spears' behaviour." Britney's father Jamie also took the stand on
Tuesday and confessed he once "touched" Lutfi during a physical altercation.
Last week, the manager testified that Jamie beat him up and threatened to put
him in hospital. Lutfi is also suing his former client for unpaid fees and her
dad for allegedly punching him.
