Britney Spears drugging claims are not being investigated by police

Sam Lutfi and Britney SpearsPolice insist they are not investigating claims Britney Spears was drugged by pal Sam Lutfi, despite reports robbery and homicide officers are on the case.

US websites reported an investigation is "well underway" and has been assigned to Robbery Homicide because of the sensitive nature of the allegations. But LAPD Media Relations representative Richard French dismissed the stories.

He said: "There is no investigation into Sam allegedly medicating Britney."

Officer Jason Lee also rubbished the claims on behalf of the media department, saying: "Who would you believe? The LAPD or internet reports."

Website reported sources saying investigators have interviewed several witnesses about the drugs found in Britney's system when she was recently committed. It said the investigation was temporarily held up by the death of an LAPD SWAT officer but is now "back on track".

Lutfi's spokesman Michael Sands slammed the "bogus stories".

Lutfi was accused of drugging Britney by her mum Lynne, who made the explosive allegation in the restraining order taken out against him.

She described a chaotic night at Britney's Hollywood Hills home where the popwreck was led around in a drugged and confused state by Lutfi.

Lynne's statement claimed Lutfi had "drugged Britney, he has cut Britney's home phone lines and removed her cell phone chargers".

She added: "He claims to control everything - Britney's business manager, her attorneys and the security guards at the gate."
