(Newser) – Britney Spears' manager has been drugging and verbally attacking the singer, her mom said in papers filed to support her application for a restraining order against Sam Lutfi. Lynne Spears says in a document dated Jan. 31 that Lutfi "claims to control everything"—he cut her daughter's phone lines, removed her cell phone chargers and disabled her cars. She quotes him as saying, “If you try to get rid of me, she'll be dead and I'll piss on her grave.”

Lutfi  told Lynn that he grinds up Britney’s pills and adds them to her food, Lynn said in the statement;  during an argument he called Britney an “unfit mother, a piece of trash and a whore.” Britney was acting oddly on a visit to her home, says her mother: she couldn’t stay still, “changed her clothes many times,” and "changed her three dogs' clothes many times.” Soon after, the singer was hospitalized.
