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.

Does she feel like having a drink and a pill, now? Gonna hang out in all the wrong places til the wee hours of the morning? Having herself blacklisted from the Chateau, her manager dropping her as well as her attorney, and finally losing the custody of her children all within the last 48 hours should pretty much put her in the mood for some late night partying, right? Did you think you were so above everything, Britney, that it wouldn't finally catch up? Did you think that your notoriety and fame would keep you from getting your due? THINK AGAIN! It's called accountability, learn it, sleep it, breath it...then LIVE IT!

Britney is special. She is my kind of girl. So talented and mature. A businesswoman, yes, but more importantly a star! Too conservative, perhaps, for my taste, but I appreciate her support and hope that she will continue to perform on TV and live. If she needs a lawyer, I know someone...

Post Mortem of a Career
Shhh! Patients are healing. Here we are at Shady Rest Psychiatric Hospital outside Kentwood, Louisiana were Ms. Spears was committed today. She was found without her panties in a barely there t-shirt that reads: I LOVE POPEYE’S Y’ALL, HE”S MY MAN! As we enter the ward we see a flank of paparazzi, snapping pictures of the disheveled Ms. Spears. Her weave was turned around, with a lollipop stuck to the side of her head where there is still not too much hair. Earlier today, she was pulled away from the trailer, where she came out swinging with her umbrella and attacked the arresting officers. The officers were appalled at the living conditions, including cases of empty beer bottles, bags of pork rinds, chips and cans of bean dip, moldy wrappers from Taco Bell and chicken wings from Popeye’s. The call came from the manager from the trailer park where Ms. Spears was residing, who asked the Sherriff to serve eviction papers to Ms. Spears for back rent on her trailer. Ms Spears began to take food and mash it on her face and said she would not leave. She screamed at her dog Bit-Bit to urinate on the officers. When that did not work, she began to attack them with her umbrella and started lip synching, Gimme More, then began crying Leave Britney Alone, Leave Britney Alone. As she reached for her cell phone, she realized, she no longer had enough money for a cell phone, or a lawyer or body guards to call. Ms. Spears was escorted to a nearby facility. She can be seen nightly at the Shady Rest Psychiatric Hospital outside Kentwood, Louisiana, where she is staging her comeback tour.

#80 was that necessary?? I bet with your great attitude the majority hates you too.
And no.... not everyone hates Britney
I don't understand why you would go out of your way to make a nasty remark like that to someone that doesn't even know you exist.
To not like her is fine but come on... seek some help before you hurt someone.

Britney has actually given up on herself, but a few well intentioned people who believe they can still make a buck on her, keep promoting her talent- or what seems to be left of her talent.
She has to spend her energies on learning to be a good mother- and being that good mother- for a couple of years. Then she can start a nice long rehearsal for her come-back So long Brit. See ya later.
