Britney Spears's former confidante, Sam Lutfi, has agreed to stay away from the pop star through July 31, it was revealed at a Los Angeles court Wednesday.

A restraining order was slapped on Lutfi in February, after Spears's mother accused him of drugging Britney, 26.

Keep-away orders can be extended to up to five years, legal experts say.

Meanwhile, the singer's father and a lawyer remain in legal control over her affairs.

Their conservatorship will be reviewed by the court on July 31 – but it's expected their control will be extended.

Another hearing regarding Spears's estate is set for Thursday.
