Britney Spears is looking to put a more definable amount of distance between herself and her past.

Attorneys for the resurgent star petitioned Friday for a restraining order against Spears' former manager, Sam Lutfi, and her onetime paparazzo boyfriend, Adnan Ghalib, both frequent companions of hers during the period she was known more for melting down than for catchy pop melodies.

Los Angles Superior Court public information officer Vania Stuelp confirmed that Spears' camp filed papers today, but said the judge assigned to the case wanted to review the documents before making them public.

A hearing is scheduled for Monday.

Ghalib and Lutfi, who hasn't been welcomed at Casa Spears or anywhere else Britney can be found for some time, couldn't immediately be reached for comment.

For several months last year, starting Feb. 1 when Spears was briefly commited to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for observationn, Lutfi quietly abided by a temporary order that mandated he stay at least 250 yards away from her.

In July, however, sources told E! News Lutfi was unwilling to agree to a permanent stay-away. And the ambiguity of such an arrangement has apparently finally gotten to Britney.

Per, Britney asked her conservators, including dad Jamie Spears, to protect her from Lutfi and Ghalib.

Lutfi was supposedly the one behind a campaign to overturn the conservatorship, which began Feb. 1 and has since been made permanent pending further action from Britney to dissolve it, early last year.
