"[Britney] told me she wanted to get a hold of Sam. She wanted him to help her find a lawyer, and wanted someone to get a prepaid cell phone to her. She was scared because her father was blackmailing her with visitation rights over her kids," Lutfi's sister told the court.

Britney reportedly called Sam in mid-January to speak with Christina, and the two arranged a meeting at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills on January 16. Britney was able to escape her bodyguard for a clandestine meeting in the hotel's sauna.

It was then that Christina gave Britney a cell phone, saying it was from Sam and ex-boyfriend Adnan Ghalib. Christina said Britney asked her, "Will Sam be able to help me?"

However, Blair Berk testified of Britney's desire to keep Sam out of her life, saying, “She repeatedly asked if I could get him arrested for what he’d done to her and get the court to order him to stay away from her."

According to Access Hollywood, Berk also claimed that Lutfi threatened to release embarrassing information about Britney and her dad if Berk did not stop such information being released about him.

The court will hear closing arguments for the case on Tuesday April 21st, and the restraining order against Sam has been extended until then as well.
