Britney Spears has reportedly gone back to court to file a restraining order against her ex-manager, Sam Lutfi, because he’s reportedly putting her mental health at risk.

Documents obtained Tuesday by TMZ, show that the 37-year-old singer has filed the legal action against Lutfi in Los Angeles Superior Court to “prevent future harm and further psychological trauma.” He is reportedly harassing the singer, her parents and getting her fans all worked up.

According to the outlet:

In docs, Brit’s lawyers say Lutfi sent Lynne a text last week, calling her out for not getting involved in Britney’s conservatorship and decisions about the singer’s mental health treatment. In a completely bizarre move, they claim Lutfi offered Lynne $1,000 to “disrupt and take over” the conservatorship. Lynne refused the money.

The documents also seem to hint that the singer believes her ex-manager is reportedly the source for the #FreeBritney movement, according to the Blast.

The singer’s family previously blamed Lutfi for taking the “Womanizer” hitmaker down the path that lead to her having a mental breakdown in 2008.

The restraining order says that he must 200 yards away from the “Oops! I Did It Again” singer, her mom, father, sister and Britney’s two kids, which includes sending any phone calls, texts or emails to them.

As previously reported, the singer was recently released from a mental treatment facility where she admitted herself to deal with issues reportedly connected to her father’s ongoing health matters.
