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.

FINALLY people are abandoning her like she deserves. this selfish brat does nothing but make life miserable for those around her, her kids included. right now kevin deserves those kids. she's a washed up talentless brat. she's going to learn the hard way, oh yes, trust me. and i saw someone defending her (or trying and FAILING) saying that most women who have kids young dont know what the're doing. this might be true but that's why you have family and friends to help you but NO OF COURSE NOT- she pushes everyone away and people are SICK of her. her husband left her, friends leave, she fires people on a whim (bitch move cuz ppl need to work) and when her kids grow older they'll hate her. and i'l say this again- sean preston looks like there is something wrong with him. and notice how those kids never smile?

With each wacked-out incident, it becomes more and more apparent that this 20-something girl has a very serious psychiatric disorder. She needs to get with a strong, experienced, well-qualified and very real psychiatrist, someone who will immediately gain the upper hand with this spoiled and extremely messed up girl. A good shrink and effective meds would do her a lot more good than that winter vacation in Malibu in "rehab".

Ding Dang y'all. I have always thought Brit had no talent and wasn't even clever enough to sell herself the way no talent, but mass market mogal madge (aka Madonna) has, but she sure is a tough nut to crack. Tough love isn't working. Does she have a bottom to hit? When will it all end? Amazing! Scary. And finally, so sad.

Why is she still news? If she can manage to destroy her career through her own stupidty she might end up pushing Chris Croker over the edge.

Brtiney, if your'e reading this, get help! Your ship is sinking fast. You need to get off the party bus & start being a responsible parent to those babies And for all of you out there who are ripping this poor girl apart. We don't know what goes on behind closed doors, we only hear what we want to hear. She may be a good mom behind closed doors, but what she does out in the public is another story. She needs help! I say, let Dr. Phil take a stab at this. She seriously needs an adult who can help her. Momma Spears, you need to be in touch with your daughter. You need to help this poor girl. KFed, children need a responsible parent & you're not a great role model. The crap that I'm reading in magazines, doesn't exactly make you a saint either. You too could easily loose these little babies to someone other than family. You need to come together as a divorced couple & decide the welfare of these 2 children. I feel sorry for you Britney, I hope you can see past your partying ways & get the help you need to be a mother to these 2 little ones. They need a mother, not a party girl.

my opinion    

Why do mothers push and push their daughters into show business, little girl beauty pageants, and convince them that they don't need an education? Britney is the poster child for those who have no real talent.

I bet Britney's mama weeps when she sees how the real talent, Christina A, has a normal life for show business people. Xtina has REAL talent. Justin Timberlake has REAL talent..

The poptart era was all electronics and only those with good voices will survive. Britney is a has been and a never-should-have-been in the entertainment world. A back up dancer maybe. Then when she gained weight and started living a crappy lifestyle her body would have told her that it was time to give it up, stay home and raise kids.

The sad part she really thinks she is coming back. Sad so sad.

tromba, We were just saying that this morning, about Britney not living past 35, and that might even be pushing it. I get Sick and tired of people saying oh Kfed did this to her, or Paris did this to her..Or her mother..That's all bull crap. Britney did this to HERSELF! No One Made her do this garbage against her will. The young Lady is really messed up, and in serious need of psychiatric counseling. (not to mention her Crying friend that sits under a sheet to send his messages)...But it is safe to say she is done, and over with. Now take whats left and try to rebuild your life, get counseling and find a real job Ya'll Time to move on!

You Wait And See    

Who doesn't like dirty news as much as the next person, but berating this girl to the extent of no end is ridiculous! She may have been hard to work with, however I don't believe the judge should be awarding K-Fed the kids in what it seems to be based on everyone abandoning her. Does anyone think that they are being too harsh on her? Especially about criticizing her body. I'm no angel, I have my opinions, but I keep it strictly dealing with her performance. But, I'm not posting nasty comments about her being a nobody or that she has no hope. Everyone got out of her what they wanted and used her until they couldn't use her anymore. I am just hoping that she doesn't commit suicide. Nothing is worth that.
