Sam Lutfi calls for Britney Spears to testify

6/12/2014 Wenn


Britney Spears' former svengali Sam Lutfi has asked a judge to order the singer to testify in his ongoing defamation battle with her family.

Lutfi, who claims to be Spears' former manager, argues the pop star is now well enough to take the stand, according to papers filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Thursday and obtained by

He is said to have included DVD footage of Spears in her latest role as a judge on "The X Factor" with his filing to prove she is mentally capable of testifying after her conservators previously insisted otherwise.

Lutfi wants Spears to appear in court so he can ask her about allegations her mother Lynne made in her memoir "Through The Storm." In the book, Lynne claims Lutfi secretly drugged her daughter and refused to let her freely speak to family and friends.

A hearing is scheduled for Sept. 25.
