BRITNEY SPEARS confidante SAM LUTFI has hit back at reports he’s trying to sell the troubled singer’s diaries – after finding her journal in the trash.
Reports suggest Lutfi has been offering the diaries to U.K. publications for a $2 million (#1 million) payday, but the latest deal with an unnamed tabloid has just fallen flat.
But the dancer insists he’s not trying to sell the journal, telling Life & Style magazine, “Britney doesn’t have any diaries.”
However, a source close to the deal, insists Lutfi is behind the sale of Spears’ “deepest feelings at the most troubling time of her life”.
The insider says, “The tabloid flew a reporter to Los Angeles to continue negotiations. Sam wouldn’t back down on the price. It was $2 million or nothing. Sam said it had to be worth it because he was risking everything.
“The diary contains entries about how her drug use spiralled out of control.”
And the deal also included a series of emails sent between Spears and concerned members of her family.
The source adds, “One was from (father) Jamie to Britney asking her to find God. He also wrote about how he’d battled addiction and how he blamed himself for Britney’s predicament.”
