Sam Lufti is currently suing Britney Spears and her estate for defamation, but he’s not above slinging some dirt himself, it seems.
In new documents filed in relation to his lawsuit, the “I’m a Slave for You” singer’s former — self-proclaimed — manager claims that drug-sniffing dogs once found a secret cache of crystal meth in Spear’s Southern California home, according to a report in TMZ.com.
Lutfi says in the papers that he “brought drug-sniffing dogs into her home (several years ago)…and they found a cache of crystal methedrine, which was destroyed.”
He alleges that, in addition to the stash of meth, the dogs also found “hot spots of drug residue in the carpeting, where her young sons [aged 1 and 3 at the time] played during visits.”
Lufti claims he covered up the drug detritus by shampooing and eventually replacing the carpet. He also claims Britney told him her father “was a violent racist” and an abusive alcoholic.
The allegations were filed in connection with the upcoming trial. Lutfi claims the star, along with her parents Lynn and Jamie, defamed him by saying he drugged the singer during the her well-publicized meltdown several years ago.
According to the New York Daily News, Lufti believes the Spears family sullied his name by saying he turned the diva into a drug-addled mess before she self-destructed and was placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold in January 2008.
Spears’ self-styled manager wants her to take the stand at the trial, but an L.A. probate judge has ruled her unable to testify due to the court-appointed conservatorship that she has operated under since that troubled time, overseen by Jamie Spears and her fiancé Jason Trawick.
Lufti has argued that Spears’ recent appearances as a judge on “The X Factor” prove her competency. The filings detail what he would like the star to testify about at trial.
So far, there’s been no comment from Britney’s camp.
