“How did it feel?” Schleimer asked.
“It hurt,” Lutfi replied.
Asked what he did, he said, “I ran to the game room and locked myself in.”
“No,” Lutfi said firmly.
“Did you attempt to keep Britney’s family away?” he was asked.
“To the contrary, sir,” Lutfi answered.
He denied cutting wires to phone lines in the house and hiding Britney’s cellphones. He also said he never drugged the superstar.

She has made a remarkable comeback from her hard times, now acting as a judge on TV’s “The X Factor.”
