Britney Spears Lawyers Up

2/21/2007 7:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Britney Spears has lawyered up again -- this time, she met with the lawyer who represented Mel Gibson in his DUI case.

Sources say Spears -- wearing a blonde wig -- went this morning to meet with Blair Berk, a prominent criminal defense lawyer whose roster of clients includes Lindsay Lohan, Halle Berry, Tracy Morgan and others.

We do not know why Spears chose to meet with Berk, although it's unlikely it has anything to do with her divorce. In her divorce case, Spears is repped by disso-queen Laura Wasser.

Spears could have met with Berk on a civil matter, as Berk handles both civil and criminal matters. Interestingly, Berk once repped Reese Witherspoon in her battle with hard-driving paparazzi. It's possible Spears went to Berk for similar reasons.

I don' t think the press drove her to do drugs and shave her head.....

If she didn't want fame, she shoulda stayed back in Louisiana!

If you read carefully the whole divorce thing is being handled by another lawyer and they suspect it might be a civil suit! i seriously hope its something having to do with the papparazzi... i think she's got enough on her plate to also have these idiots taking pics of her at rehab and inspecting every move she makes. SOOO many people in the world that are worse off than she is but she needs to go through a divorce, custody battle AND addiction and withdrawal with a lense in her face taking pics and helicopters flying over when she needs privacy. i would've killed myself by now. cut the chick some slack, let her be and get better.

#4, only "virgin" hair can be donated for wigs, etc. Her hair was so abused and nasty that no one could use it. If you would like to donate hair to Locks of Love, etc., it can't be dyed...I'm just sayin'....

Maybe she is meeting with the lawyer because her family finally got smart and is having her committed so she HAS to stay in rehab. All they have to do is claim she is incompetent and is harmful to herself and they can commit her.
If that were the case, she would be upset because she could not booze it up or drug it up anymore and instead she would have to GROW UP! Lets all just hope KFed gets the kids. Good for him - he proved to be the more responsible parent after all!!!!!
