(Newser) – Britney Spears’ legal team slapped Sam Lutfi with a 3-year restraining order—and now they’re going after his money, People reports, asking a court to order the erstwhile manager to reimburse Spears $123,142 in legal fees. They also want $72,292 from similarly restrained ex Adnan Ghalib. Elsewhere:

  • Rihanna is getting revenge on Chris Brown via song, the Sun reports. A demo of Silly Boy was posted by Kanye West this weekend.

  • Recently engaged Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart are looking to adopt, an insider tells Star. Flockhart already has an adopted son.
  • Kiefer Sutherland and Brooke Shields are both speaking out over last week’s headbutting incident through lawyers, the New York Daily News reports. Shields’ rep called Kiefer a “gentleman,” while Sutherland’s rep says the actor “was neither the instigator nor a wrongdoer.”
  • Heidi Montag is no more: The reality show star changed her last name to honor new husband Spencer Pratt. “Now that we're legally married, I wanted to do the right thing,” she tells Us.
