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.

You know, I really don’t get the impression that Britney is going to knock herself off. My impression is that the only thing on her radar is herself. Her little girl speaking voice REALLY grates on my nerves. She’s been in this business for a decade … but she doesn’t seem to have any polish about her. What multi-millionaire “home dyes” her own hair? She dresses like a slob … wearing the same dirty clothes for days at a time. Her fans seem to be rooting for her career comeback, but Britney doesn’t appear to have any interest in making a comeback. I feel sorry for her fans. They don’t seem to “get it”. Their little pop star was a complete fabrication just to make money. She is EXACTLY like Michael Jackson.

Seems like 99.5% of the idjits posting here haven't a clue what is going on. Britney is making the judge look like a dummy and her lgal team worse. She has been ordered to court and the judge is finally going to find her and possibly her law team in contempt and that means go directly to jail. Her team of lawyers can't afford that as they have 1oo's of other clients that are counting on them. If they were jailed they would be sued by all of them for not presenting them as they have contracted to do. This has gone beyond Britiney fighting to get custody of her kids. This is a grown woman that has the brains of one of her sons and just doesn't think she has to abide by the laws like you and I have to. She has been given 50 miles of rope and that is one hell of alot of rope to yourself with.

Lack of communication is putting it mildly. What happened to the court ordered drug testing? The court and the Federline camp has always had trouble reaching her since the second custody case began. Not answering her door in the past for scheduled visitation with the boys, and not answering her cell or home phone when the court mandated drug testing company tried to contact her. No wonder her most recent lawyers have bowed out.

It's amazing how quick we jump to judge other's for their behavior. As a paralegal i seen many child support cases and 90% of this cases either Mother or Father do the same behavior. I am sure noone of us could live the life Britney lives it's hard enought being a famous much less the papparozzi watching every step you make. It's a shame she is going threw this hard time in her life but I am sure she had a good reason to fire the lawfirm that represented her.

Just let it go now, shes made her bed, she has to sleep in it sometime and this trully is so very sad. She realllllllllllllllly needs help and I hope someone is able to help and I am not talking men, we need someone to intervene. Forget her mother, shes a 2 time loser now and pitiful.

She needs to be COMMITTED. She is mentally ill!!

That is not an insult, it's just the truth. Her mother has abandoned her by not forcing her into a mental hospital so that she can get help.
