The on-going saga of the real life, Lifetime movie, the Amanda Bynes story has again, taken a strange twist.
Sam Lutfi, the notorious ex-manager of Britney Spears, has oddly taken to social media to discuss and defend troubled starlet Amanda Bynes, and their much scrutinized, and public relationship.
Lutfi, who was once closely linked to Spears, played a role in tricking the actress back to California for help. Sam has been a central figure in the newest attempt to rehabilitate Bynes and took to Xo Jane to write an odd editorial piece in which he staunchly defends himself and his actions.
Even more surprising, Sam admits that it was client, Courtney Love, who pushed him to write the piece, in an attempt to try and change public perception, and misinformation. In the Xo Jane article he refers to tweets and messages Love has sent praising him for being integral to her rehabilitation.

Of Bynes, Lutfi says, "Amanda is getting the help that she needs.....I am working closely with her and her family in order to ensure that we can move on from the tabloid sensationalism of her ‘breakdown' and instead concentrate on what a rare, talented young woman she has always been and continues to be."
Despite his best efforts to reach the public, it would seem the jury is still out on what exactly Lutfi's motivations are but we hope Amanda is getting the help she needs.
