Spears’ label exec calls Lutfi a ‘gofer’

Britney Spears

The man suing Britney Spears for a large amount of money claiming he was her manager for several months was in fact a “gofer” who performed menial tasks, one of the world’s top music executives testified in court on Monday.

Sam Lutfi, one of Spears’ closest friends in 2007 and early 2008, never identified himself as Spears’ manager or had any kind of business dealings with her music label, said Barry Weiss, the former CEO of Jive Records, who signed Spears when she was 16.

“I had never heard of this guy before,” Weiss said. “He was a gofer .?.?. someone who has menial tasks, like a personal assistant.”

Monday was the first day of testimony in a civil trial against Britney Spears, in which her former confidante Lutfi is suing the singer for a chunk of her earnings during 2007 and 2008, when he said he managed her.

Lutfi is seeking 15 percent of Spears’ earnings during a time she was making $800,000 to $1 million per month, his attorney said. Lutfi is also suing Spears’ parents, claiming Jamie Spears punched him in the chest in 2008 and Lynne Spears libeled him in her book “Through the Storm” released later that year.
