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.

Are you on Crack? Have complete faith in yourself, and your loved ones people that you know. Your faith is completely misplaced in this trainwreck. You do not know her at all, and you do not know why she does what she does.

Laura    

I think she pulls most of her shinanagans to get attention. She is desperate for people to notice/watch her. She definitely has security issues. It is very sad. She seems to be spiraling downward fast.

Sheila    

She's going to have to grow up to keep real people in her corner. The brat temper tantrums and needy disposition will not get her where she wants to be.

SHE'S AN ATTENTION WHORE    

Is anyone surprised by this? She's a stupid dumbass, and a petulant little bitch who does what she wants, when she wants.

"There has been a breakdown in communications between [Britney] and Trope and Trope making further representation of her interests impossible." - Translation: Her attornys have told her exactly what to do to get her kids back (don't be a dumbass, don't court the press, don't go out driving for no reason, don't flash your snatch, don't go out clubbing or hotelling, etc), and she's totally ignored what they've suggested. They've attempted to contact her numerous times, but she doesn't answer her phones or return their calls. She's killing her own case, and doesn't give a damn. She's a braindead little dumbass, and her attorneys realize this. I agree with them; dump the dead carcass before it starts to stink up the place.

1. The girl obviously DOES NOT WANT CUSTODY OF HER CHILDREN people! If she did, she'd be fighting with all her might for them. She doesn't need a lawyer where they are concerned because The girl obviously DOES NOT WANT CUSTODY OF HER CHILDREN! A lawyer is just going to have to "pretend" she wants them. The longer she keeps putting this off, the longer she's FREE and w/out children!

2. At least K-Fed did not have the children WITH him. He gets to have a life when the children are not with him. As we all remember, she was dragging them out at 10, 11, midnight with no schedule whatsoever, with coke and teeth-rotting whatever in their bottles. A nanny that he has is better for them that THAT kind of "mothering." I say bring on the nannies for those boys. That's the closest thing to "normal" they can hope for.

3. I haven't heard mention lately of those "court ordered drug tests." Are they still going on?

4. None of it will matter before long, because she's going to be out of money... staying in hotels when she has HOUSES (what's up with THAT?)... buying very expensive new cars... paying child support... low record sales... and all that money she spends in the middle of the nights at gas stations.

Sheesh... She NEEDS to be held accountable... how many of US would have waltzed out of a store after STEALING a lighter (or anything) and it was all caught on camera? Just like when she hit that car ON TAPE and did NOTHING.

Nobody holds the girl accountable for a damn thing. It's not just her mother who needs a hand slap... as long as she's never held accountable for anything she does, she's just going to keep on doing it! She's laughing at everybody and snubbing her nose at it all, and it seems to be working beautifully for her.

She's waltzing right through life with nary a care, while the rest of us are worried about her children (not so much worried about HER anymore)... talking about how she's mentally ill in some way... talking about HER, exactly what she wants! Maybe WE are the crazy people... LOL

There's no doubt that she's bipolar. There's no doubt that she's addicted to something. And there's no doubt that her train is going to go off the tracks in 2008.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see the writing on the wall on this one. This girl is in dire need of help.

Want Dog Back on the Air    

Brit needs some help. Can you believe alittle over a year ago we all were happy to see her leave Kevin. Now we cant wait for Kevin to get the kids and everything else. Someone needs to wake this woman up. When will everyone stop encourging this behavior from her and make her grow up. As for the younger sister we all saw it coming as well. Not to put the mother down so much but she is part to blame but both spears girls have to stand on the own two feet for what they do. Brit quit party come back to earth and remember what you were before you broke up with Justin thats the brit we all want back...

Those papers were filed in 2006, did anyone read them?? Nobody is trying to get out at the last minute, or stall.... This poor lawyer, Tara Scott, has wanted out for a year and as of the 4th of this month she'll finally be free, or so I gather. I don't blame her, her job is impossible. How can you stand by someone who's hell-bent on destroying themselves? I'm not anti-Britney but if she can't admit something is wrong and actually STAY in rehab then maybe she should be officially declared ridiculous and just be commited.

whoops    

It's pretty clear that she is manic depressive (aka: bipolar 1). Combine that with NO chance to go through a normal childhood, Mommy Dearest who worked her like a dog in a circus act, toss in two babies back-to-back (and the ensuing hormones doing a giant flip-flop) and I'm only surprised that ANYONE is surprised by her behaviour. She needs about an 18 month stay in a lock up rehab, and some MEDS. She won't last as long as Anna Nicole at the rate she's going.

If you have a child that is unstable and unable to care of herself, places herself and her own children in danger, she should be placed in a hospital and have a court ordered legal guardian. Momma Spears start being a Mother and head to court and save your daughter!!!!
