Britney Spears' caretakers and her former confidante have settled a long-running lawsuit that centred on events before the pop star's public meltdown in 2008.

Lawyers for Spears' father, who is her conservator, filed a notice in Los Angeles Superior Court announcing the settlement with Sam Lutfi, who was Spears' self-professed manager.

Lutfi sued Spears and her parents in 2009, claiming her father Jamie hit him in the singer's mansion in early 2008. He also contended that a memoir by Spears' mother, Lynne, contained libel about him.

The filing does not provide details on the settlement.

A judge in November 2012 threw out Lutfi's claims but an appeals court later restored the lawsuit. A trial had been scheduled for October.

The settlement was first reported by celebrity website TMZ.
