Britney Spears and former manager Sam Lutfi have reportedly ended their seven-year legal battle.

Lutfi filed a defamation case against Britney and the Spears family in 2009, accusing them of publicly slandering him by claiming he had some responsibility for the singer's downfall that saw her hospitalised in 2008.

However, Lutfi insisted Britney's alleged drug abuse was the real reason for her very public fall from grace, and even went as far as claiming he had tried to stop the singer relying on drugs.

After a judge dismissed Lutfi's case in 2012, he appealed on the grounds that he was still owed unpaid earnings, and a trial was due to begin in Los Angeles next week (beg12Sep16).

Britney Spears' manager: 'There's no big drama about scrapped music video'

  Britney Spears' manager: 'There's no big drama about scrapped music video' Britney Spears' manager insists there is no controversy over the star's scrapped Make Me music video - it just "didn't work". The pop star released the first single from her new album this summer (16), and photo teasers of a David LaChapelle-directed promo were released online, including one snap she posted on Instagram featuring her handsome male extras. But last month (16), the video was leaked on the Internet, and bosses at RCA Records released a statement saying it was "not a suitable representation of the song". When the Make Me video was officially released, fans noted it was not the same one Britney had promoted earlier, and furthermore, videographer Randee St. Nicholas was credited as the director and not LaChapelle. This prompted devotees to start a petition urging label bosses to release the original video, and the Change.org initiative garnered support from over 10,000 people around the world. In addition, fans also concocted theories as to why Britney's team would release a new version, with some suggesting the promo was canned because the singer thought it was "too sexy". Now Britney's longtime manager Larry Rudolph is seeking to end the drama, telling the Los Angeles Times there is simply no scandal to the matter. "It's really simple. The video just didn't work," Rudolph says. "This is the first time we've reshot a video, and because it's Britney there are all kinds of conspiracies. Nobody is hiding anything." LaChapelle previously worked with Britney on her Everytime video, but is also known for other promos like Christina Aguilera's sexually suggestive promo for Dirrty.

Britney Spears is ending her own 7 years war with Sam Lutfi the ex - manager who accused her of rampant drug abuse and slandering his name -- the case has settled. Britney paid Lutfi "in the low 6 figures," but less than the estimated 0,000 in legal fees it would have cost her to defend the lawsuit.

However, TMZ.com reports that Britney and Lutfi settled their case last week (ends04Sep16). An insider told the outlet that Britney paid out "in the low six figures" to her ex-manager. While the exact amount wasn't confirmed, it is believed to have been less than the estimated $500,000 (£372,825) it would have cost Britney in legal fees to defend the case.

Britney and Lutfi first met in 2007, when the singer's life was in turmoil. As well as undergoing a divorce from then-husband Kevin Federline and a custody battle with him over their sons Sean Preston and Jayden James, Britney was also estranged from her parents, and it's at this time she was allegedly abusing drugs. It was around this time that the singer had her now infamous public breakdown, which saw her shave her head and attack a car with an umbrella.

Following her breakdown, Britney's father Jamie won a conservatorship, meaning he took control of the singer's life - primarily her financial decisions and ones that greatly impacted her life, such as those about her sons. To date, Britney has never challenged this conservatorship, so there are currently no plans for it to come to an end.

Britney has since bounced back from the drama and is currently enjoying huge success and critical acclaim for her new album Glory.

Britney Spears was on Loose Women and it was brilliant viewing .
"Are you guys really Loose Women?" UmmmmIt's not every day we get to see Britney Spears appear on daytime television, but today's Loose Women was an absolute treat thanks to a brilliant, if slightly bizarre, episode featuring Brit.
