Ever since Britney Spears split from paparazzo Adnan Ghalib, her life has been on the upswing – awards, hit songs, popular tour, the works. And now a judge is making sure he won't be able to interfere in her life for at least three years.

TMZ reports that the judge gave the go ahead for the permanent restraining order after Adnan decided not to show up for his hearing today. Britney's conservators, including her father, previously had a temporary restraining order to keep the kinda ex-boyfriend away.

Meanwhile, the other bad apple from Britney's former circle, Sam Lutfi, is scheduled to have a hearing on April 1 to decide whether his restraining order should be extended as well. As OK! previously reported, testimony from an earlier hearing from Brit's hair stylist Roberta Romero revealed that Sam had sent a barrage of texts to the woman in an attempt to get through to Britney.

"Her family put her into the hospital just to set up the conservatorship," read one text. "I've done everything I can to free her.... I'm very close to getting her free now."

According to testimony, these texts scared Brit so much, she asked Roberta to text Sam back and tell him to leave her alone. Her head of security, Itamar Gelbman, also testified that Brit was afraid of Sam.

"She was scared... She can't fall asleep," Gelbman testified, saying that Britney asked him to increase the security patrols around her house.
