Fired by Clarkson, Hired by Britney!

8/6/2007 4:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Britney SpearsTMZ has learned that Britney Spears has finally succumbed -- to the notion of having legit management! Britz has hired uber-manager Jeff Kwatinez to help resurrect her dying career. Nurse! Code Blue!

We're told Kwatinetz, CEO of The Firm, one of Hollywood's most powerful agencies, is eager to get his hands on a charity case -- and Britney's a case, for sure. If he can pull off an image revamp for the trashtastic poptart, he'll be considered a hero in Hollywood ... and considered for sainthood by the Vatican! Good luck to him. Bring your own Taser!

As TMZ first reported, Kelly Clarkson axed Kwatinetz to hire Reba McEntire's manager/husband Narvel Blackstock. The Firm reps such stars as Leo DiCaprio, Cameron Diaz, Mandy Moore, Korn, Enrique Iglesias and Ice Cube.

I have to say that I have been a “train wreck” a time or two in my life. I bet if all of us were really honest with ourselves we would be able to say that we have made really bad decisions more than we would like to admit. The difference between us and Britney’s is her every mistake is magnified which I am sure makes a bounce back that much harder to do. I am so glad Britney has reached her hand out for help that is the first REAL step to recovery. Those of you who judge her are just haters so do your job haters!

I am sure this girl doesn't need to work another day in her entire life. She's definately not a charity case. TMZ needs to write articles not speculate oh I forgot u are afterall a gossip zone.

This is too funny. She could have taken her mothers' advice for FREE. But now she is hiring someone to turn her career around!

She'll fire this guy the first time he tells her something she doesn't want to hear. I hope he tells her she dresses like a whore and that her store bought hair is a total disaster.

He might be able to dress her up but he isn't going to be able to "clean her up". She will still be the girl with the holes in her stockings, food stains on her clothes and have a bloated face & body.

I think it more likely that somebody could work out peace in the Middle East, than get this trainwreck back on track. Maybe she should hire a pro like Dina Lohan who can get her coke, and blame all her problems on everybody else.

You people complain she needs a good PR person to help her get back on tract, once she does that, you still bash this poor woman. God forbid you've made any mistakes in your lifetime & you're told about it over & over & over .... God didn't create us to be perfect, we're Human, we do make mistakes, it's part of living & growing. She's @ least trying to get things back in order in her life & career.

Sad thing is, this Tabloid page & other sites inlcuding magazines only report the bad stuff she or any other celeb does ... never anything postive because people only want to read or hear what they did bad. It's a shame Celebs have to always prove themselves to be goody goody but yet when they make a mistake, they're bashed to no end. Like no one has ever made a mistake.

I wish Brit well & hope things work out for her, her children, & her career.

She has to heed his advice if she wants to regain her career. However, she has a proven track record of the doing what she wants to do without caring a rat's butt about the advice from others.
