International superstar Britney Spears has been granted a five-year restraining order against her former manager, Sam Lutfi.

According to court documents obtained by ET, Spears was granted a permanent restraining order against Lutfi last week as the judge ordered Lutfi to stay away from Spears, her parents and her kids for five years, maintaining a distance of at least 200 yards. 

Lutfi and his attorney argued in court that the restraining order -- which also bars him from making "disparaging" remarks -- was "unconstitutional" as it served to restrain his first amendment right to free speech, but the judge did not agree.

Lufti also has a restraining order against him from former client Courtney Love and her daughter, Frances Bean.

Love told courts that Lutfi harassed via phone calls to her home and cell numbers “at all hours of the day and night,” and via text messages, several of which she attached. “go choke on opiates and die.. no one gives a sh*t about you,” reads one message. Another text to Love reads: “all of your sh*t is going public Friday morning.. don’t say you weren’t warned.”
