After Courtney Love filed documents claiming that her ex-manager Sam Lutfihas been harassing her and her family through emails, texts and phone calls, the songstress was granted a temporary restraining order Tuesday (Dec. 11). 

According to TMZ, Love said Lutfi relentlessly demanded money for his services. She wants her ex-manager to stop contacting her sister and her daughter Frances Bean Cobain. 

“The escalating verbal harassment and threats of Sam Lutfi left no choice for Courtney and her family but to seek protection,” Love's rep told People in a statement. “The Cobains are grateful for the anti-harassment order issued by the Los Angeles Superior Court against Mr. Lutfi and the powers it provides law enforcement to assure that Mr. Lutfi terminates all contact with the family.”
