Adnan Ghalib, Britney Spears' ex-beau who accompanied the pop princess during her downward spiral, today faces a continued restraining order from Brit's father Jamie.
Superior Court Judge Reva Goetz has asked legal counsel representing Spears to deliver necessary paperwork so she can sign a long-standing restraining order to keep the shutterbug from bugging Britney.
In January, the court agreed to a temporary restraining order against Ghalib, Britney's former manager Sam Lutfi and attorney Jon Eardley -- who the "Womanizer" singer's father/conservator Jamie accused of undermining the conservatorship.
Since Jamie took control of his daughter's affairs, the pop mom's image has completely turned around; her album "Circus" shot to the top of the charts, she nabbed two VMA awards, she regained shared custody of her children, and she's currently playing to sellout crowds all around the U.S.
An attorney representing Jamie told the judge today that Adnan has not filed any objections to the continued protective order being issued.
UPDATE: A judge has ordered that Adnan Ghalib stay away from Britney for another three years. Ghalib did not show up to court.
Could Britney Spears' former boyfriend and paparazzo Adnan Ghalib be deported?!
Some reports say yes! Adnan, 36, was charged with assault with a deadly weapon, hit-and-run and battery for allegedly hitting a man with his car. If the photog is convicted, he could reportedly be deported to either England or Afghanistan. U.K.'s The Daily Mail says the photographer moved to England from Afghanistan with his family when he was five years old.
Spears' restraining order case against Ghalib continues April 1.
A Los Angeles Superior Court judge has extended
restraining orders against three people, including Britney Spears' former manager and ex-boyfriend.
Judge Aviva K. Bobb extended the restraining orders in order to hear more testimony when the case continues April 1. Attorneys for Spears' father/conservator say that the pair have conspired to break up the conservatorship, and the two have repeatedly tried to contact Britney, with some reports saying that mysterious cell phones are left in her hotel rooms.
Spears' father wants lengthy orders against the pop star's former manager Osama "Sam" Lutfi, ex-BF/paparazzo Adnan Ghalib and attorney John Eardley. AP reports that Papa Spears, a security guard and Britney's hair stylist have already testified in the case.
Paparazzo Adnan Ghalib, best known for his escapades with Britney Spears, has been charged with three felonies for allegedly smashing his car into a process server earlier this month.
The L.A. County D.A. charged Ghalib with assault with a deadly weapon, battery, and hit and run, stemming from an incident in which Ghalib allegedly hit a man with his Mercedes-Benz in an alley on February 11. The man was reportedly trying to serve Adnan with legal papers on behalf of Britney Spears. The victim broke his wrist.
Prosecutors are asking for bail set at $110,000. If convicted, Ghalib faces up to 7 years in prison.
TMZ first broke the story.
Britney Spears' father testified on Monday about why he felt a long-term restraining order should be issued against three people -- including his daughter's former manager and her paparazzo ex-boyfriend Adnan Ghalib.
Spears said he believes Britney's one-time friend/manager Osama "Sam" Lutfi was a danger to the family. Jamie called Lutfi a "predator" and repeated an allegation the Lutfi ground medication into his daughter's food.
Lutfi's attorney Bryan Freedman questioned Spears about recent phone conversations between his client and Britney Spears. Jamie said Lutfi called his daughter and the call was found on a prepaid cell phone. The phone was confiscated from the singer and revealed the numbers of Ghalib and Lutfi.
Jamie Spears testified his daughter told him the phone was given to her at a hotel by someone who said it was from Lutfi and Ghalib.
The Los Angeles Superior Court extended a temporary restraining order against Lutfi, Ghalib and attorney Jon Eardley through Wednesday.
Stay away, y'all! Restraining orders filed against Britney Spears' ex-manager Sam Lutfi, and former flame Adnan Ghalib have been extended until Wednesday morning.
According to AP, Judge Aviva K. Bobb temporarily extended the restraining orders to give an L.A. judge more time to hear arguments in the case of Jamie Spears vs. Lutfi and Ghalib. The pop princess' dad is set to testify this afternoon.
Mr. Spears and his attorneys are seeking a long-term restraining order against the men and lawyer Jon Eardley, who they claim have been attempting to sabotage a court-ordered conservatorship that granted him control over the "Womanizer" singer's personal and financial affairs.
Stay tuned for live coverage from the court house later today.
Britney Spears' father Jamie Spears has obtained restraining orders for his daughter against ex-boyfriend/paparazzo Adnan Ghalib and former friend/manager Osama "Sam" Lutfi. The AP reports the two had been trying to gain control of the singer's affairs.
The restraining order filed by Jamie Spears states Lutfi and Ghalib "are now working in concert to disrupt the conservatorship with utter disregard for Ms. Spears' health and well being." Brit's father and lawyer Andrew Wallet oversee the star's affairs as co-conservators.
Spears' father says her cell phone records show "numerous telephone conversations" and text messages with Lutfi, 34, and Ghalib, 36. The papers also say Brit informs Adnan "of her destinations and that he then arranges for paparazzi to meet and film her to his financial benefit."
Her father also alleges that on December 27 and 28, 2008, Lutfi tried to contact Britney through her hairdresser with the message that Lutfi was not responsible for creating the conservatorship. He allegedly sent a text message to the hairdresser saying, "I've done everything I can to free her from this. Very close to getting her free now."
The restraining orders forbid the men from contacting Spears or coming within 250 yards of her, her property or family members, according to the L.A. Superior Court papers.
Did pop princess Britney Spears dedicate a song to her former photog beau Adnan Ghalib?!
It's truth! Britney's got Adnan on the brain!
A source reveals to Us Weekly Brit's new album "Circus" has an entire track dedicated to her ex. The source says the sexy song "'Mmm Papi' is a gift to him." In the song, Britney sings about someone saving her by "stepping in the middle of it all." Spears sings in the chorus, "things get rough and there's no doubt."
Adnan was by the pop mom's side when she was in and out of court for the custody of her sons. The couple parted ways after the three-month fling.
