Brit's Lawyers Will Quit -- She's Impossible!

1/2/2008 8:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Britney's latest set of lawyers has bitten the dust.
Read the motion
The high-powered firm of Trope and Trope filed legal papers today asking to withdraw as Brit's hired guns in her custody dispute with K-Daddy.

In the legal papers, attorney Tara Scott from Trope and Trope wrote, "There has been a breakdown in communications between [Britney] and Trope and Trope making further representation of her interests impossible." Ding dang wha?!

No word on whether Brit has a new lawyer.

You may recall, disso-queen Laura Wasser quit Brit last year as well. Representing a popwreck can be a bitch!

UPDATE: Sources tell TMZ the reason Trope and Trope withdrew is because Britney just didn't listen to her lawyers' advice, and her behavior was generally sinking her case.

She needs to tell the court she does not want the kids. It is not what we like ot hear from a mother, but in this case it would be the best thing. If you think about it, she is telling us that now through her actions.

Brit, we all know you read this, so just let go!!!! Look at what you have done to your sister!

Does anyone think that MAYBE these lawyers are dropping her because she won't use anything on k-fed ? just asking. Maybe their is evidence she will not use against him due to the kids,she has stated herself she does not like anyone talking bad about him...

Ugh, only you retard. This has nothing to do with K-fed you idiot. They are dumping her because she will not listen and do what she is told. Therefore, she is considered a lost cause and they cannot win. Man, are you ever dumb.

Party 'till you die!    

"Q" please keep on running your mouth! I really enjoy watching angry, insane people run amok! Hell, that's why I'm on this very blog! It's so savagely fun to watch people implode, people just like you Q! Brit still has a chance at getting mental help, but Q, you well past any sort of help!

GIVE THE KIDS TO A GUY WHO DECIDED THAT IT WAS A GOOD IDEA TO GO PARTY IN VEGAS FOR THREE DAYS STRAIGHT TO DRINK, AND DRUG IT UP! YEAH, SHE SHOULD JUST GIVE HER CHILDREN OVER TO A DEADBEAT, WHO HAS TO HIRE A NANNY BECAUSE HE DOESN'T KNOW HOW TO TAKE CARE OF HIS OWN CHILDREN, OR JUST DOESN'T CARE TO ACTUALLY TAKE CARE OF THEM, SO HE GETS A NANNY TO DO HIS JOB, EVEN TOUGHT HE DOES NOTHING ALL DAY LONG, AND HAS NO JOB TO GO TO. A GUY WHO OBVIOULSY HAS SUCH A BAD DRINKING PROBLEM THAT HE COUDN'T HELP BUT DRINK RIGHT OUT OF THE WHISKEY BOTTLE, ALL NIGHT WHILE PARTYING IN VEGAS, FINISHNG A WHOLE WHISKEY BOTTLE BEFORE THE NIGHT WAS OVER, AND ONLY STOPPED IN BETWEEN GULPS TO DRINK SHOTS OF TEQUILA.(Splashnewsonline.com), has the pics, just look under Kevin Federline to see the drunk at work!!
K-FED IS AN ALCOHOLIC!! AND THERE IS NO WAY BRITNEY SHOULD JUST TURN HER SONS OVER TO HIM!! BRITNEY IS THE DRUG-FREE and ALCOHOL FREE ONE!! K-FED NEEDS TO STRAIGHT GO TO REHAB!!

If I was about to lose my kids forever, I would listen to my lawyers.
She obviously does not care and deserves to never see her kids again - for their own safety and well being! She is the absolute most selfish, self-centered mom I have ever seen. I hope she gets sterilized and never has another kid.
I also hope she is banned from owning pets too because Britney probably forgets to feed them and they die - which is why she seems to be getting a new dog every week!.

too bad    

Only Britney would think she doesn't need to listen to her lawyers. I don't care if she was "over-managed" at a young age and now thinks she doesn't need to listen to Professionals. Why doesn't her family have her committed and assume POA? She is clearly nuts of something (bi-polar, on drugs, in denial of her custody case...). What are they waiting for? She is acting suicidal on so many levels. In five years the money will be gone and if she hasn't harmed herself by then, who knows what she will do when the $$$ is gone. Her family needs to step up. Of course, now that Britney isn't making $$$$ for them, they have disappeared...and whoring out the little one who also acts horridly immature and clueless...
