Britney Spears’ conservatorship was ordered more than four years ago. As a part of that effort, the singer’s cell phone and internet usage is allegedly monitored. The restrictions on The X Factor star’s ability to use her laptop and mobile device freely were reportedly put in place for her own protection.
Both Spears’ father and fiancé allegedly want to prevent her former manager, Sam Lutfi, from having access to the performing star. Her cell phone was reportedly programmed to block calls from numbers known to be associated with Lutfi.
A Radar Online source had this to say about the pop star’s conservatorship guidelines:
“Britney’s cell phone and internet use is restricted and heavily monitored, and this is done for her protection. Britney and Jason [fiancé] essentially share a cell phone, and it’s routinely checked to see who has been calling. Brit’s computer usage is also restricted in the sense that certain websites are blocked. Her family doesn’t want Britney reading negative stories that would upset her again, this is all done with love and for her well-being.”
A restraining order filed by Spears’ conservators against her former manager expired earlier this year. The Radar Online source maintains that The X Factor judge’s loved ones took added protective measures to make sure Lutfi did not contact Britney. The former manager is currently suing both Britney and her parents for breach of contract and defamation of character, according to the New York Daily News. Sam Lutfi has allegedly taken particular exception with the way he was portrayed in Lynne Spears’ book, Through The Storm. The publication details Britney’s life and the extremely public meltdown, which prompted the conservatorship.
