New Driver Can't Handle Britney's Heat -- Drives Off

11/27/2007 8:07 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Britney Spears finally wised up and hired a driver to help, er, curb some of her recent mishaps behind the wheel. Good move! Except that just days later, he is already "on his way out."
Britney Spears
TMZ has learned that the chauffeur/driver Spears hired to drive her, the kids and a court-ordered monitor around town is quitting -- because driving for Brit Brit is a "liability." Obviously! A source close to Spears tells TMZ, that the driver and a monitor both had very close calls with paparazzi and other vehicles while driving Miss Britney.

A close call is an improvement over running over photog's foot.

Then it is obvious that she is being denied he basic rights and the stupid Judge on this case or the city attornys or the prosecutord office should step in and press criminal charges against these dopes. She is being denied her basic rights and her children too..........When is it ever going to end?

Dear God!

Just hire a limo driver who is used to all the comotion and use a real limo.

Another way to go - is to have the kids, responsible baby sitter, and court appointed monitor driven by a driver in one car, and Britney can drive herself in her own car.
This option would really be best for her kids.

It's really not that hard to comply.

For someone with such a lot of money, she sure doesn't seem to be able to hire decent help, or hold onto anyone. She must be absolutely HELL to work for. She can't even seem to keep any family or friends around ... I think she and X17's paparazzo Sandro should just marry and be done with it. He was a former cop in Brazil.

Does Britney Desperately Seek Paparazzi?AOLPosted:

1) -- If you feel bad for Britney Spears having to constantly fend
off hordes of paparazzi, you may lose some of your sympathy if you
keep reading. In a new column, Chicago Sun-Times writer Bill Zwecker
offers some insight into Spears' daily workings. Zwecker's sources
claim that almost daily, Spears finds out where the paparazzi will be
that day, and then makes sure she heads to that area. Spears
sometimes
even does the grunt work herself, Zwecker reports, calling hotels to
find out what press junket or celebrities will be there on that day.

Press Wherever Britney Spears goes nowadays, dozens of flash bulbs
are popping all around her thanks to a constant swarm of eager
paparazzi.1 of 9 "Even though her professional career and personal
life are train wrecks and she seemingly is paying little attention to
her appearance, she is doing everything she can to make sure she's
photographed almost daily," a source inside of Britney's camp tells
Zwecker. The source goes on to report that Spears or someone in her
entourage will call hotels, nightclubs and other popular paparazzi
hangouts to "find out what's going on ... who's there today." The pop
star will then show up to get her picture taken. "Britney is obsessed
with keeping herself in the public eye. She has told me several
times, "If they don't see you [in the media], they forget you ... I'm
not going to let that happen,'" the source said. The surprising
revleations come after a tumultuous year for Spears that included
many complaints about the paparazzi. In an interview with NBC's Matt
Lauer, Spears said that photographers "crossed the line" and said "I
feel like I'm a target." In another incident, Spears beat on a
photographers car with an umbrella in the days leading up to her
checking into Promises rehab.

The driver probably got annoyed with her not wearing underwear and perspiring directly onto his car seats. It gets HOT in L.A. when the air-conditioner isn't running ... !

The driver probably wasn't a professional anyways. Her main qualifications for employees is that they be hip, cool with drinking and drugs, can change a baby diaper, and that they don't mind her being naked all the time.

She used the paps for cheap publicity to promote her "comeback" and now she can't take legal action against them because everyone will find out about her little arrangements with them. Other celebs call the police when there is problems. How about the daily photo ops she arranges with X17, makes it hard for her to complain when she is still using the paps. I too wish she would run over the paps because I'd love to see her ass sitting in prison for 15-20 years for vehicular homicide.

Seems Brittany isn't the only one having trouble driving. Maybe it really isn't Brittany but others trying to get the best shot!!!!!

So many employees have left the Britney camp in the past (changing nannies and mannies -- constantly) She has gone through several managers and her attorney before Kiley quit. I think there is more to this than the driver quiting because he said it was too much of a liability. It's either poor wages or not wanting to have to deal with Britney's erratic and irrational decisions in her every day life. For one example--seeking out the most public places for her attention seeking ego and exposing everyone around her to the insanity of it all.

good grief....I'm thinking that if its hard for a "hired driver" do manage aroung the paps...than maybe we should all have a lil bit of understanding to the pressure that Brit has faced trying to drive and do "normal things" can you imiagin the pressure having someone following you around and just waiting for you to make a mistake?
leave the poor girl alone....
