Britney Spears' former manager SAM LUTFI is suing the pop star's parents for defamation.
Jamie and Lynne Spears have publicly blamed Lutfi for the series of emotional crises that lead to the Toxic hitmaker losing custody of her two sons to ex-husband Kevin Federline in 2007.
And now he is holding the singer's parents responsible for damaging his reputation by allegedly leaking false information about his conduct to the press.
He has filed suit for compensation in a Los Angeles court, according to PerezHilton.com.
In a statement to the celebrity blogger, Lutfi's lawyer Bryan Freedman says, "This lawsuit is being brought as a result of the defamation, ridicule and harassment of Sam Lutfi by Jamie Spears and Lynne Spears.
"A thorough investigation has revealed overwhelming evidence from independent witnesses, showing that Lynne Spears knowingly and maliciously publicised devastating false information about Lutfi, which destroyed his reputation, irreparably harmed his career, and subjected him to constant scorn and humiliation."
Freedman goes on to allege Jamie and Lynne Spears are using Britney for her money, insisting the truth will all come out in court.
He adds, "At the time of the trial in this action, the jury will have an opportunity to weigh the credibility of the witnesses. In doing so, it will be faced with two threshold questions: Why would a supposedly loving mother write a tell all book about the sordid details of two of the most devastating nights of her daughter's life and go on countless talk shows for her own profit? And why would a loving father who deems his daughter to be incompetent, thrust her into a massive world tour only to subject her to the very limelight that threatened to shatter her life, for something other than his own personal gain?
"The facts of this case will reveal Jamie and Lynne's conduct in light of these questions. It will unequivocally explain the motivation of two people who are seemingly willing to destroy anyone and anything that gets in the way of their ability to control and profit from their daughter."
The lawsuit comes less than a week after Britney was granted a temporary restraining order against Lutfi, his attorney Jon Eardley, and her ex-lover Adnan Ghalib.
