Britney Spears' former manager says her father threatened to kill him.

Sam Lutfi told a Los Angeles courtroom yesterday Jamie Spears barged into her house and chased him around a kitchen, saying Lutfi had hurt his daughter and he was going to beat him up.

He says the next day Jamie Spears came back, punched him in the solar plexus and threatened to kill him. Jamie Spears' lawyer said in opening statements Spears only touched Lutfi in the chest.

Lutfi also denies he tried to keep Britney's family away. He's suing them for defamation and a cut of her profits.
