Last week, the Make Me… singer settled her lawsuit with ex-manager Sam Lutfi. As we reported, Lutfi claims the musician owes him money for his services. He also believes Spears and her family defamed him, and blamed him for her infamous 2008 hospitalization. After the case was dismissed in 2012, Sam appealed and was able to revive his allegations.

According to sources, the pop star paid her former friend in the low six figures. Apparently, she was better off giving him the dough because it would’ve cost her half a mil in legal fees to defend her side.
