Lawyer to Britney -- Enough Already

8/17/2007 1:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Laura Wasser/Britney SpearsTMZ has learned famed divorce lawyer Laura Wasser wants to quit Brit.

Sources connected to her divorce case tell us Wasser is about to resign as Spears' attorney. The disso-queen, who has repped scores of stars including Angelina Jolie and Nick Lachey, sealed the deal on the divorce late last month. Now that the divorce is done, Wasser is done.

We're told Wasser has put Spears in touch with other lawyers who could help the singer in her ongoing custody battle with Fed-Ex, but Spears has become so reliant on Wasser she doesn't like any of the alternatives. There's probably good reason -- with Spears flipping out before our eyes, it's pretty amazing Wasser was able to get a 50/50 custody split in the settlement.

As for why Wasser wants out, we're guessin' crisis of conscience.

Wasser didn't return our calls.

It's too stressful, I wouldn't represent her either. She is not trying to work with her lawyer.

Blah blah blah    

All this is on record, all the videos, magazine articles and so on. It is in the history books so to speak. Her poor boys, when they grow up and see all this, I hope they are more forgiving of their mother than she is her own.

This needs to stop. Everyone else would be flipping out too if they constantly had cameras on them all the time, scrutinizing their every move. There are FOUR tabloids out right now that are just completely running her under the bus. That would make anyone a total mental case. I feel sorry for her.

I could see it coming. I knew it was just a matter of time.

If Britney keeps this up, she's not only going to lose custody, but she's going to wind up with supervised visitation.

Brit you are not a low life you are out of control and lost. Our decisions and experiances make us who we are and you havent made good choices in a LONG time.Get out of LA. Go buy yourself a beautiful piece of property somewhere in the south. Rest, exercise, get back on your meds, find a good church, get out of the spotlight before you end up like Sharon Stone in Casino. Take a couple of years off, regroup, find yourself ,you are young, nobody is going to forget you. Belive me your fans want to see you healthy emotionally and physically. You need to fire everyone around you and make a new home for yourself , You lay down with dogs you get fleas. You are a southern girl,you can do it!!

Could you honestly stand in front of a judge and say that your client (Brit) is capable of raising two little boys? Sounds like Wasser is trying to save her soul and not be struck by a bolt of lightening. Number 6... You are so right on.

If the lawyer wants to quit she should just quit. Obviously, she wants much more than that. She wants some of that celeb publicity for herself.

#7 Chewi, Maybe if she stayed home and quit doing things to attract the attention, going for a swim in the ocean in her underwear, for one, she wouldn't be constantly scrutinized. She brings it all on herself. Maybe KFed's attorney should ask for a drug test!!! I am, by no means, a KFed fan, but he is looking like the better parent. What a shame!!!

I think that Laura Wasser is sick and tired of Britney Spears' excessive behavior as of late that she didn't want to mess with her on the child custody case. Kevin Federline is fighting very hard to get custody of those two boys. He's been wise with staying out of the spotlight and the cameras. Britney needs to keep a low profile during all this conflict.

Britney needs to hire a lawyer to start suing the tabloids and to sue the people talking smack about her. She has done some messed up things but she hasn't done everything that is being reported and said. If she doesn't stand up and get a handle on this she will lose those boys for good.
