News of the World reports Britney Spears is set to be a star witness in her manager/pal Sam Lutfi’s battle to overturn a restraining order taken out by the troubled singer’s family. “I am going to call Britney to the stand so she can tell the world how I was helping her,” Lutfi told a pal. “I am innocent. I am Britney’s friend and would never hurt her.” Lutfi is reportedly preparing for a hearing at Superior Court in Los Angeles on March 17th, where he’ll say Britney had access to drugs from other visitors and is fearful that her life is being taken over.
