BrtSPEARS110907_01.jpgLOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - A restraining order has issued against Britney Spears' former manager Osama "Sam" Lutfi.

Spears' former confidant must now stay at least 100 yards away from Spears and her children. Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Aviva Bobb also banned Lutfi from contacting Spears in any manner.

Spears' father, Jamie, has called Lutfi "a predator." Lutfi has claimed that he is trying to help the pop singer free herself from her controlling father and vowed to appeal the ruling.

"Never before in the history of the world has a restraining order been issued against someone who did nothing more than answer a cry for help," Lutfi's attorney Bryan Freedman said after the ruling.

A second restraining order was issued against attorney Jon Eardley, who claims Britney Spears hired him to represent her.

Both orders will be in effect until 2012.
