Britney Spears' lawyers went to court in Los Angeles on Tuesday and asked a judge to issue a restraining order against her former manager, Sam Lutfi.
But after the singer's lawyer revealed that Britney & # 39; great concern & # 39; on the case, Judge Brenda Perry immediately sealed the courtroom, without preventing the press from hearing the testimony of three witnesses who asked her legal team for evidence.
She later extended the restraining order to June 13, when a new hearing would be held after two hours of listening to witness testimony behind closed doors.
Britney's medical condition has left her & # 39; vulnerable & # 39; and family problems raised in the request for rest periods & # 39; concern the stability of her life & # 39 ;, lawyer Samuel Ingham told the judge before reporters were instructed to leave.
Britney Spears' restraining order against her former manager Sam Lutfi will remain in place for about two weeks after a judge suspended a court hearing on Tuesday where he challenged the restrictions as too broad and unconstitutional.
While Britney, 37, was not in court, her father, Jamie Spears, came dressed in a dark suit and blue tie.
Lutfi – with a shaved head and black jacket and dark jeans – was also at the hearing at the Superior Court in Los Angeles.
Spears received a & # 39; street ban for civil harassment & # 39; for the first time on May 8 against Lutfi after claiming in court that Lutfi repeatedly used Britney's Lynne mother and tried to get her fans on with the # freebritney movement.
Singer lawyers accused Lutfi of placing & # 39; contemptuous and threatening comments & # 39; against Spears and her family in recent weeks.
Her lawyers also claimed that Lutfi was involved with & # 39; citizen guard actions, bribes, and disclosure of private information & # 39; In order to undermine the pop star's curatorship and, her lawyers said, he sent a series of texts to Britney & # 39; s mother Lynne Spears, 64, who criticized her for lack of action in the midst of the family crisis.

The restraining order requires Lutfi to stay at least 200 meters from Britney, her parents and her two sons and refrain from making contact or disparaging them
According to court documents, Lutfi told the Spears family that he & # 39; trunks & # 39; Britney & # 39; s personal items from the time he had her in hand – and she could make them public.
Lutfi fought against the search request and emphasized that he had not been in contact with Britney since 2009, and he also claimed that the texts he sent to Lynne Spears were not sufficient reason for such a court ruling.
The former talent manager also replied that he was actually the one who was discredited by Britney after she accused him of forgery and imitation in a video posted a few weeks ago.
But after he heard that a restraining order & # 39; future damage and further psychological trauma & # 39; s & # 39; would occur to all parties involved, Judge Brenda Penny, judge in Los Angeles, issued an order requiring Lutfi to stay at least 200 meters from the singer and her two children. , her parents and her friend, Sam Asghari.

Britney & # 39; s dispute with Lutfi comes at the same time as another lawsuit relating to her curatorship that was established in 2008, following her shocking public breakdown of 2007 and subsequent hospitalization.
Her father, Jamie Spears, 66, supervised the conservatory, but her mother Lynne reportedly wanted to play a greater role in the care of her daughter.
