A very bizarre case has emerged involving Britney Spears’ former manager, Sam Lutfi. According to a Los Angeles Police Department report obtained by Radar Online, Lutfi has been accused of kidnapping. Even stranger, the victim is Isaiah Silva, the estranged husband of Frances Bean Cobain.
If you’re wondering how they’re all connected, it comes back to Courtney Love. Love is Frances’ mother and previously employed Lutfi as her manager as well.
According to the report, Lutfi robbed and kidnapped Silva on June 3 around 12:45 a.m. The reports say that Lutfi and another individual grabbed Silva and forced him into their car against his will. Silva was reportedly “in fear for [his] life” and “did not want to go with the suspects.”
Additionally, Lutfi allegedly stole Silva’s phone and smashed a window during the incident.
Luckily, Silva remained relatively unharmed and was able to file the police report five days after the terrible incident took place.
As of right now, there isn’t a current motive for Lutfi’s actions, but it’s clear that this strange and dangerous behavior is a pattern for him. Spears herself filed a restraining order against him eight years ago and accused him of drugging and emotionally abusing her while she was in the middle of her public meltdown. Although he’s stayed under the radar since, he has clearly not cleaned up his erratic behavior.
Silva and Frances have been separated since March after only two years together, and Love no longer lets Lutfi manage her career, so it’s unlikely that they have any connection, but it’s still a very scary story.
We’re glad to hear that Silva is fine now, and hopefully he (and everyone) will remain protected from Lutfi from now on.
