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.

Good for her ! Thank God!!!! Maybe he can hie her a sensible stylist to do something with her wardrobe and hair. I hope this works for her. and I also think she needs a publicity agent so she can stop getting into these pedictements.

I love Britney Spears so much. She's the best. All she need to do is hit the gym and she's okay. I don't think she's crazy at all. People just judge her and they don't even know her. People just think (most people think she's crazy so I'm just gonna say that she crazy too.) Britney Spears is a great recording artist and I know that her come back is going to be huge because only a real Britney fan would know that. I bet not one of these people who said bad things about her even brought any of you albums and I have all 4! From 1999-2003!
Yay Britney Spears!

Whatever he's being paid can't nearly be enough money to deal with Brit! She needs a psychiatrist and meds-not career management. Until she get's the personal drama together, the career is not gonna fly.

We Bash Her because We Don't like Her... it's as Simple as that. She's a Poster-child for for Bad Behavior, Bad Parenting, Bad Talent (if You call that talent), and every other category You could Possible think of. She should have just done the right thing and disappeared into the sunset when her childhood career ended... but she didn't because she's addicted to fame and publicity, good or bad. She obviously doesn't care if she's a Trainwheck... as long as people are still looking at her. If TMZ, and all other Media outlets, would just do a "Brit Embargo", she's probably just Self Implode. So Stop Talking about Her, Stop Writing about Her, Stop taking pictures of Her, and Stop Interviewing Her. If We can Do that for a While.. We might finally be rid of Her once and for all. :P

HORAY!!!!!!! another YES MEN assistant just like her THUG BODYGUARDS thay shall
have in acordance for there CONTRACT will not stop bRIT-bRIT from taking narcos
drinking, and killing photogs. They will pay no concern by CONTRACT for the kids and
the diet and dental problems. This is just more bad medicine, but as soon as Kwatinez
makes notion of concern for bRIT-bRITZ declining stability and the childrens declining
health bRIT will fire him figuratively or literaly.

"anon",.....legally, "public figures" are fair game when it comes to written and spoken opinions (from TMZ, or you, or I), - that's why Howeird Stern's threats were treated as the laughable legal smoke-screen that they were (there have been ZERO lawsuits filed). There is NO power in it, it's a "Paper Tiger", nothing more. HKS is a murderer and B.S. is a no-talent has-been. C'mon, sue me.

Britney Spears and her "career" are DOA. She doesn't need a lawyer -- she needs a mortician.
