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.

Britney loves the paparazzi following her around or else she might stay home for a least one day without going out.

Watching that video reminded me of how addicted Britney is to attention and paps. Watching that video made me wonder why Britney has such expensive houses when she is rarely in them. Watching that video reminded my that Britney can't go one hour without getting into her car to go hunt down the paps. Maybe she should get help, her addiction for attention seems pretty unhealthy.

Yeah Mom, she's worth defending until she accidently smashes her new Mercedes into your two children while high and text messaging.

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

That's one of the oldest tricks to get someone to stop... if that jerk's foot really got run over it was because he put it there.

We agree that Brit is a trainwreck but don't let that make you think we don't see the papaNAZZIs for the slimeballs they are.

In our town if you act pathetic and needy, if you get dumped and if you screw up enough times and go around looking and acting like a nut case, you are pretty much banned from all socialization. No one will want anything to do with you. Not out of curiosity, not out of pity, not out of anything. You're done. Basically, our town is a clique of people who will ostracize someone who behaves like Britney, even for 5 minutes on a very bad day. You don't get second chances in the real world sometimes. When my ex bf dumped me, so did all our friends. No one is interested in me, no one cares whether I live or die, therefore I don't have the option of making a career out of being in the lime light. Because of one mistake that I made, I have to just lay low and make new friends who aren't part of this back-stabbing community. The thing is, if this happened to Britney, she'd be long gone. If she were living in my town she'd be hiding away in a house on a hill, too afraid to show her face anywhere. Perhaps I should be living in Hollywood, they are a lot more forgiving than a regular small California town.

The Simple Facts    

To #93, Jeffries: You made an xlnt point, "Mr. Christie, why don't you put the same question to Twitney Spears, with her vasts amount of money and time, why not ask HER why she isn't doing charity work or something to help others instead of driving around all day looking for photogs while shopping and doing all the restaurants and coffee houses every damned day?"

And of course, that poster is a flaming hypocrite; most of unfitney's fans & defenders are. As well as dull, low class, tasteless nutjobs. That's why they like her; she's the epitome of every trait they have.

To Poster 98: You also nailed it. These idiots will continue to sing her praises, until / unless Twit smashes into one of them while texting or high.

EVERY TIME SHE GETS BEHIND THE WHEEL OR EVERY MOVE SHE MAKES! NEVER MIND, SHE TRIES HIRING A DRIVER? THEY'RE STILL UNDER A MICROSCOPE! POOR BRITNEY,
EVERY MINUTE MISTAKE IS BEING MONITORED, NO WONDER WHY SHE CAN'T REALLY
THINK ANYMORE!

SHE'S AN ATTENTION WHORE    

I guess slutney can't keep anyone in her employ. She's fired her managers, fired her management team, changed record companies, fired her attornies 3x, fired 3 assistants, now her driver is quitting because she's a "liability". Well, slutney is to blame for this; she creates the difficult & dangerous situations by calling all the media, to let them know where she'll be & at what time. If I were her driver, I'd dump her skanky ass, too; any job is better than having to work for braindead dumbass trailer trash slutney...

14. Oh STFU jealous peeps. Brit is the queen of pop and a role model too me and my kids.

Leah, you need a brain transplant. So, this drunk, drug taking, kid abusing, narcoleptic, lying, manipulative, snatch flashing, family destroying, mentally diseased media whore is a role model to you & your kids? Be afraid, be very afraid. Maybe (and I mean MAYBE) she was the queen of pop around 7 years ago, but not now. And, if those things are what you & your kids role model yourselves after, please drive off a cliff very soon. It'll be a lot less expensive for all us tax payers than to pay all the state sponsored mental hospital bills & therapy your idiotic kid role model choices are going to cause.

Get a clue people......BRIT is NOT the danger to her kids....the paps are!! The driver is not quiting because of something BRIT did but because he fears for his and her safety because the paps can't back off of her! This is NOT her fault.....she nor her kids or any other celebrity should be made a prisoner of their own home because these idiots are willing to endanger lives for a photo and some bucks??? We need laws to protect celebs and famous people from not being able to live their lives safely thanks to these paps! A smart jusge (which hers is obviously not) would put a restraining order on the paps in regards to her kids....next time instead of running a redlight because a flash blinded her or because she was too scared to stop, she can call 911 and have their butts hauled off to jail! Follow the adults if you need to, but my gosh leave their kids alone!!!

why doesnt she go to the courts and file harrassment against all of them, they are endangering her and her children and anyone who is around her. She could sue all of them for all the danger they are causing unless she likes the publicity. Sad isn't it? She can't go anywhere without them following her, and getting her into trouble.. hmm maybe they are all working for her ex! he needs the money.. he is probably calling them and telling them what she is doing next.
