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.

Don't know if this is true. I guess will find out so enough but I wouldn't be surprised if it was. I'm sure she has been told to cut out the late night outings at least during the custody dispute.

Hell, say what about Kevin but he does seem to be listening to his lawyer to lay low. To all the Britney fans who say it ok for her to go out and spend the night with guys she just met, yes she is single, but to a judge it shows bad judgement. If she has bad judgement on this what else is she bad decisions about.

Hey Chewi, I agree, it's sad that her every move is caught on camera, but she should be laying low, out of the spotlight for her kids sake. I really think she is mentally ill, and completely self-sabotaging. If she cared about her rep and children,she wouldn't be stripping in public, skinny dipping, peeing in front of everyone, and unraveling before the nation's very eyes.

Did you stop to think that what is said is true and pictures do not lie. Also, why does she put herself out there and do all of these crazy things. Just take a good look at her eyes, always rolling around and the constant opening of her mouth, plus all of the crazy things that she does. You don't need a psychiatrist to tell you that this woman needs, psychiatric help.
Post#14 Did you mean by being a southern girl that she is the dog with the fleas? If so you're right!!!

Believe it or not, there are parents out there that are much WORSE then Britney and they have their children. I hope she keeps 50/50 custody. No matter who she is and how she is, she is still their mother!!!!!

This girl obviously has some serious mental health issues. It's one thing after another with her. It's almost as though she WANTS out from under the responsibility of raising two kids---she has done everything but hand them over to him on a silver platter. She better RUN, not WALK and apologize to her Mother and try to salvage whatever little is left in order to straighten her life out. It's past the point of being amusing--she has become an irresposible person and she's way too old at this point to chalk it up to youthful indescretions.

Bipolar disorder can cause problems with relationships, jobs, and family.
Married people with bipolar disorder are 2 to 3 times more likely to get divorced than those who do not have the disease.
Bipolar disorder is often not treated or misdiagnosed. Because of this, you may not understand your own behavior and your loved ones may feel frustrated.

I have seen this first hand. They think they are the most important person in the world, they are over the top happy laughing and smiling all the time. They have random sex with people, have an energy level that is absurd and they don't just shop too much but they steal.

Kevin needs to encourage mental health not rehab for Britney. The depression for bipolar is severe and the suicide rate is high. She needs help NOW.

Get a Clue    

Bipolar Disorder
SYMPTOMS
Bipolar disorder (also known as "manic depression") is often not recognized by the patient, relatives, friends, or even physicians. An early sign of manic-depressive illness may be hypomania -- a state in which the person shows a high level of energy, excessive moodiness or irritability, and impulsive or reckless behavior. Hypomania may feel good to the person who experiences it. Thus, even when family and friends learn to recognize the mood swings, the individual often will deny that anything is wrong.

In its early stages, bipolar disorder may masquerade as a problem other than mental illness. For example, it may first appear as alcohol or drug abuse, or poor school or work performance.

It's this simple. Lawyers have specialties. Wasser handles divorce matters that settle. She does not handle custody matters or matters that go to trial. She is not a trial attorney that I've ever seen.
Let's take a look at Kevin's case against Brit for a moment. All the gossip and innuendo in Star, O.K, and so on simply is not evidence. He is going to have to produce evidence. Also, the judge is going to have some hard questions for Kevin concerning why he agreed to 50 - 50 split on day one and was back in court practically the next day disatisfied with his own agreement.
Kevin received a very generous settlement from Brit (she supports him and the children). Why is he unwilling to use any of that money to pay for this custody battle -- he's asking the court to order Brit to pay for his lawyers and her own.
Brit's a troubled young girl, but she's paid everyone's way for most of her short life -- first mom, dad and her siblings, now her ex-husband and the kids. Everyone uses her. God help her.

I completely agree with number 20 and 21's posts. If you know your every move is being watched, why not lay low and display a positive image. Is it that hard to put on an act of a sweet Sunday afternoon with the kids at a park or the zoo? Or God forbid, not club for a whole month? Even if I was a hard-core partyer, if I cared about my kids at all, I would at least pretend to be a good stay at home mom. It's like she just doesn't get it..
