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.

good, i'm glad. i hope everyone abandons her. she doesn't deserve anyone caring for her, not when she cares for no one, not even herself or her kids. i normally don't actively hate celebrities but i hate her. i will even stand paris or nicole over her. she's nothing but a selfish child abusing crackhead who deserves everything bad that happens to her. karma is a bitch and she's reaping plenty of it right now lmao

Getting dumped by your divorce attorney is not very unusual. I was dumped by my attorneys twice during my divorce, and I had grounds to file ethical complaints against both and malpractice grounds against one.

Britney knows exactly what K-Fed and his attorney have in store for her at the deposition. They’re going to degrade and humiliate her as much as they possibly can—just like K-Fed did during their marriage. Abusers like K-Fed know how to instill fear in their victims, and their attorneys use that fear to their legal advantage. If you don’t believe me, spend a few days watching domestic law attorneys come and go from initial hearings. Overwhelmingly, the attorneys match the clients.

K-Fed’s attorneys have every intention of making her deposition as painful, degrading, humiliating and as L-O-N-G as they can. All they need to do to is provoke her to rage during the deposition, and it is a home run for the opposing party. After an abusive, cruel marriage, provoking the abused spouse to rage is very, very easy: just repeat K-Fed’s abuse of her during the deposition. If you don’t think this is possible—or if it wasn’t possible during your divorce deposition—your marriage didn’t have enough abuse and your divorce didn’t have enough money at stake. Nothing about this deposition will help her get her children back; the most she can do is hold her small piece of ground against the onslaught.

If you’ve never been in a marriage or a divorce like this, reserve judgment, for Christ’s sake!

Why doesn't she just get it over with and kill herself? We all know she's heading there eventually. It'd be better for the kids, better for the world. Obviously, I'd prefer she get her act together, but as of now she shows no sign of doing anything to help herself.

This is very sad to see and watch -- I do not believe she needs those babies -they look scared when they are with her at 2 a.m. at a gas station of all places when normal parents are fast asleep and so are their children. She is selfish and in dire need of inhouse psychiatric care for an extended stay with no chance of getting out --so many people have tried to help to no avail. If she is confined and brought down off her high horse maybe there is a chance for her but not her babies, they need and deserve more than the two parents (if you want to call them parents) they were unlucky enough to be given them to love, nourish, undersand, be compassionate. Now her sister is pregnant what a shame -- MOM SPEARS what the hell were you thinking? Money is the root of all evil -- look what you are raising! Now what is your excuse for Jaimie Lynne?

I am not a fan of Britney Spears. However, she is so obviously ill that even a blind person can see how sick she is. I am surprised that her mother has not filed papers in an attempt to have her daughter forced into custody to recieve mental help and substance abuse counseling. I am sure that she loves her sons and that she wants them in her life but she is so lost that she doesn't know how to help herself let alone care for her boys. And I love TMZ but you and all the paparazzi really need to back off of this ongoing tragedy because your just feeding the monster. It's sad but Britney will probably end up dead at a young age and be remembered for her downward spiral into insanity.

I think Britney could care less about "getting help" and just LOVES getting attention, so even bad attention is fine with her. She'll either OD, or kill someone on the road, whatever comes first. It's her own fault, and choice.

It seems very evident that Spears is on the road to insanity. She may either be on drugs, or is mentally ill. Someday, she may recover, but I believe she will crash and burn before she does. In the meantime, her 2 young sons have to remain in their dad's custody while she contiues to get monitered visitation. A lot of the public tends to knock K-Fed, but he does seem like a stable person. He keeps his children very sheltered from the public, and he does not display any outrageous public behavior. His only downfall is that he does not have much in the way of musical talent. But that ooes not make him an unfit parent. In fact, he seems to love his kids very very much.

Street Smarts? The only people who have "Street Smarts" are uneducated ignorant dropouts who watch too much TV.

dude, she clearly has some serious mental issues, try bipolar with psychotic features, delusions of grandeur, rules do not apply to her, manic behavior-stripping, not wearing underwear, changing clothes, provacative clothing, substance abuse, shaving her head!!!! she is completely irrational and no one can work with her, sadly as a mental health professional i fear the only thing that will help her is hitting bottom-and with all that money she can be pretty insultated. i watched the ths and the paparazzi she is hanging with really made her sound pathetic-calling the paps her only friend, and then she keeps him around. it is all very sad!!!

Does anyone think she really reads this stuff? Cause if she did and I was her I would be too ashamed to show my face outside ever again..........I mean really..what the hell is wrong with this girl? I think the bottom line is she has never been told no by anyone ever.......that judge needs to throw her stupid, hillbilly azz in jail for like a month so she will see that the whole world does not revolve around her......and those poor kids. K-daddy was partying this wekend with Paris...yikes I hate to say it but she is a step up from Britney, at least she dresses nice.

One, as a reporter and online radio show host for thedailybs.com, let me start off by saying that Britney Spears is a waste of typing space. How can a mother sit there and tell people she loves her children and yet act the way she does. She can afford to buy wigs made from pubic hair but not afford to provide for her children. I really hope a family court judge looks strongly at this and throws the parent guidebook at her, cause she's not one.

With her lil' sister and the bun in her oven, this family is screwed up. The little Britney we once knew is now a pubic hair wearing, foul mouthed, whore who sleeps with camera men. Kevin, although your rapping skills suck, I do give you props for trying to be a father.
