A permanent restraining order has been slapped against Britney Spears' former associate, Sam Lutfi, has exclusively learned.

A judge in Los Angeles granted the request Tuesday.

Lutfi must stay away from a former roommate, Samuel Barth, and have no communications with Barth, his mother, or his brother. Barth, an aspiring actor from Virginia, moved into Lufti's Los Angeles neighborhood in early 2010. He says their friendship went south after he moved in with Lutfi rent-free.

"Mr. Lutfi began to insist that my mother was 'evil,' and my family relationships seemed unhealthy. Mr. Lutfi was a concerted effort to turn my minor sister against our mother, incessantly calling, emailing, and texting about me and our supposedly unhealthy family life," Barth stated in court documents.

Lutfi also allegedly hacked into Barth's Twitter and Facebook accounts and gained access to his mother Deborah's email. Deborah states in a sworn declaration, "I have never actually met Mr. Osama Lutfi and have no desire to have any contact with him.

"Mr. Lutfi has persistently stalked and harassed me, repeatedly calling and sending my family, my friends and me unwanted and unsolicited text, chat, and email messages....even tried to disrupt my relationship with my minor daughter, offering her a cell phone she could use to avoid my supervision, suggesting he send her airline tickets to Los Angeles, and urging her seek a court order to terminate my custody."

The restraining order is in place for three years. Sam Lutfi was a no show in court Tuesday morning.
