Britney's Manager

Says 'Gimme Less'

9/17/2007 8:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0917_brit_ex_05_excited_tmz-1Britney's manager has jumped ship, and the reason sounds strangely similar to her former lawyer's woes over Spears.

Manager Jeff Kwatinetz issued a statement saying, "It saddens us to confirm media reports that we have terminated our professional relationship with Britney Spears." Noting Kwatinetz repped Brit for a grand total of one month, he continued, "We believe Britney is enormously talented, and has made a terrific record, but current circumstances have prevented us from properly doing our job."

So what are the "circumstances?" Maybe they're similar to what we hear about Laura Wasser going South on Spears. We're told Wasser questioned Brit's judgment but simply could not control her.

Sources close to the situation tell us Kwatinetz had similar problems, notably at the VMAs, when Britney decided to switch the costume she planned to wear for the glitterated swamp bikini, without telling anyone. Ding dang, y'all.

We're told after the VMAs, the firm demanded to meet with her but she refused. They felt she needed help, but she wouldn't hear it.

Those poor babies need to go to the state and Both parents need their parental rights TERMINATED plain and simple. This poor excuse for a woman is CTD....thats nurse talk for Circling The Drain. Now sounds like management has pulled the plug. Washed up and drugged out at 25. What a pity.

I was feeling so bad for her, but after reading this and HOW SHE WOULD NOT accept any advice, then anything bad that happens to her, its all her fault! People want to help her but she doesnt want to take any advice.........

Still totally in control.....still making her own choices.....still doing exactly as she pleases with enough money to back her up......Why does anyone at all feel sorry for her? Every bit of this is her own doing. She has not been interested in her career in quite some time and everybody moaning about it just doesn't get the picture. She is all about Britney, her kids come second, and she really just care about anything else......Media please stop enabling her behaviors!

I think Britney is a real person, going through a hard time in her life just like the rest of us do. She just needs to take some time out for herself and realize what's important. Maybe what she really wants doesn't include VMA shows, PR managers, and a "comeback."

Trust me Y'ALL, she ain't gonna quit until she's broke and files for bankruptcy! Then K-Fed won't give a crap about getting custody of those kids and then somebody will find her dead somewhere!

I just hope the house in Louisiana is in her mom's name or something. At least her mom won't be put out on the streets when dumb ass Britney goes broke!

#19 tell me how do you really feel about her? Anyway, this is the history of the entertainment field, look back at all the dead bodies and ruined lives trying to get to and stay on top. Britney Spears is really the Millie Vinillie of pop music, she really couldn't sing that well and everything was hid behind loud music and lip sych. The mask is off and people see the truth and only a handful will drink the kool-aid!!
