Courtney Love has been granted a permanent restraining order against her former manager.
Sam Lutfi is to stay away from Love, her sister, and Love’s daughter, Frances Bean Cobain.
According to The Blast, the judge noted that Lutfi “seems to prey upon people” and instead of the usual three-year restraining order, he added an extra two years.
“The escalating verbal harassment and threats of Sam Lutfi left no choice for Courtney and her family but to seek protection. The Cobains are grateful for the anti-harassment order issued by the Los Angeles Superior Court against Mr. Lutfi and the powers it provides law enforcement to assure that Mr. Lutfi terminates all contact with the family,” Love's attorney, Howard King had told The Blast when Love first filed for the restraining order.
Lufti is known for being the former manager of pop royalty, Britney Spears’ during the mid-2000s around the time of her infamous meltdown. He later sued Spears and her family for defamation; the lawsuit settled years later.
