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.

Cynic    

Those poor little boys. She should just give them up gracefully instead of making herself and her life (and theirs) into such a public freak show. She can't even take care of herself, much less two precious babies.

Also, I think "Q" has mellowed out a little bit, so let's lighten up just a tad, okay?

I THINK BRITNEY ROCKS    

I know some people have said that Britney only finished the ninth grade but didn't she recieve her GED? Last I recall I heard she did. Next of all I would have fired the lawyers for not doing their jobs as well as Kevins. Seems Kevin has one heck of a lawyer that's dragging poor Britney through the mud.

too bad    

#15 you must be britney. get a grip, call your lawyer and listen to them, you might actually win if you listen to the lawyers. BTW stalling tactics are very bush-league and any judge sees through that b.s. and will punish anyone who plays these amateur games. besides, she isn't stalling if she is in contempt.

15. Hello! Can you say 'stalling tactic'?

This girl ain't bright, but she's definitely got street smarts.

Dude, how do you figure she has street smarts? She is a sheltered kid that worked for the disney channel. She is from a podunk town in Louisiana, not New Orleans, not Baton Rouge, not even Shreveport. You could make more of a case for the Spears family being products of inbreeding. Seriously? How do you figure Britney Spears has street smarts?

the lost    

It's pretty bad when a high-priced lawyer in a high-profile case drops their client. Maybe Brit should get "My Cousin Abernathy" to represent her. LOL.
