Singer obtains restraining order against Adnan Ghalib

Britney Spears has successfully secured a restraining order against ex-boyfriend Adnan Ghalib and one-time manager Sam Lufti, court papers have revealed.

The Womanizer star’s affairs have been controlled by her father, Jamie, as a ‘conservator’ for the last year.

And the restraining orders, obtained from a Los Angeles judge, reportedly accuse Ghalib and Lufti of trying to ‘disrupt’ this conservatorship.

Lawyer Jon Eardley was also named in the order. All three men were today unavailable for comment.

Jamie Spears has looked after Britney’s affairs since 1 February 2008.

The court documents released on Friday said: ‘On the first anniversary of the establishment of the conservatorship, the co-conservators are informed and believe that these three figures are working in concert to disrupt the conservatorship, with an utter disregard for Ms Spears' health and well-being.’

The order, granted by Judge Aviva K. Bobb, also alleges that Lufti sent ‘anonymous, threatening and harassing’ messages to Jamie, as well as messages to Britney’s hairdresser and the singer herself.

Britney has kicked off 2009 seemingly in good health, with her latest album Circus – which she released in December 2008 – doing well in the charts.

The singer also starts a US tour in New Orleans next month, and will head to London in June for an eight-night spot at the 02 arena.
