Britney Spears' Former Manager Sam Lutfi Leaks Voicemails Of Singer Pleading To End Conservatorship: 'I'm Being Held Against My Will'
Pop Princess Britney Spears’ former confidant Sam Lutfi — who claimed to manage her for a brief time between 2007-2008 — has released a treasure trove of voicemail messages allegedly from Britney, proving that she’s been fighting to end her conservatorship for years.
Lutfi split the audio messages into four different Instagram post. The first clip, Britney can be heard pleading, in what he claimed was 2009, “I want out of this conservatorship.”
She continued: “I’ve been blackmailed by visitation with my babies by the conservatorship. I’m confined, restrained, and stripped of my civil rights. And I demand the state of California to review this case because I feel it's illegal. Bye."
In a second video, the Grammy-winner is following up on her earlier call, and alleging that her estranged dad, Jamie, is threatening to take her sons away from her.
“I’m calling again because I just wanted to make sure that during the process of eliminating the conservatorship that my father has threatened me several times, that you know, he’ll take my children away,” she said. “I just want to be guaranteed that everything will be fine with the process and that you guys are taking care of everything, that things will stay the same as far as my custodial time.”
In a third heartbreaking audio post, the “Toxic” songstress is requesting “John Eardley and John Patterson to represent me as court-appointed attorneys in my best interests and best wishes."

Lutfi claimed the message was also from 2009, and that her previous court-appointed attorney Sam Ingham II — who recently resigned as her lawyer — alleged the calls were “fake” and “not her” on the recordings.
The final video the controversial manager shared via Instagram was a screenshot of an email from 2008, Britney can be heard saying she is of “sound mind and body” and that she wants Eardley to represent her.
She also claimed that she was “being held against my will” and that her “civil rights” have been violated. Lufti captioned the post, “There was never anyone on the inside that would help. These calls are to my phone, these calls cost me a ton of money in court, tarnished my name further but also tore my soul apart, I had no idea where to turn, no one was listening no one seemed to care.”
He continued: “I can’t believe nothing has changed. She will never get those years back, her children were robbed of a huge chunk of history with their mother.” Britney shares sons Sean Preston and Jayden James with ex-husband, Kevin Federline.
Britney begged the court last month to be freed from the restraints of the conservatorship her estranged dad enacted in 2008 — following a series of public breakdowns. Despite a few setbacks, Spears was handed a legal victory earlier this month when a judge ruled she could hire Mathew Rosengart to represent her following the resignation of Ingham.
