Lufti lawsuit against Spears thrown out

Britney Spears

Britney Spears' ex-manager Sam Lufti has lost his lawsuit against the star and her family.

The disgruntled former employee sued Britney and her parents for defamation and breach of contract.

After six days of testimony, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Suzanne Bruguera found that Sam simply had no case, People magazine confirms.

"I really thought long and hard about this," Judge Bruguera said in court.

"[Dismissing this case], it's the right thing to do."

Sam claimed that Britney owed him wages and that her father Jamie punched him. He also alleged that Britney's mother Lynne slandered him in her 2008 book and that his professional relationship deteriorated due to her abuse of prescription amphetamine Adderall.

Apparently Sam was overheard saying, "I'm going to appeal," as he was leaving the courtroom.

Britney, her family and the star's legal team are "delighted" with the result.

The first live show of US the X Factor, the TV talent programme that Britney serves as a panelist on, airs Thursday.
