Brit's Attorney Acknowledges He Can't Rep Her

2/7/2008 4:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ just received the following statement from Brit's attorney Adam Streisand:

"At the request of Britney Spears, Adam Streisand, a Partner at Loeb & Loeb LLP, met with her yesterday to discuss her legal rights in connection with the conservatorship over her person and estate. Following that meeting, Mr. Streisand learned that the court had issued orders that prevent Ms. Spears from retaining counsel of her own choosing, and on that basis, Mr.Streisand has decided he will not represent her at this time."

Party 'till you die!    

Jamie is 3:47, you are a total fool, but I too would like to see her parents just give up and wash their hands of her! Then she would have no one with her best interests and would quickly kill herself! Now that would be cool! And just so you know, because you are so stupid, Jamie owns and runs his own business and hasn't taken any of his nasty daughters money! But you're stupid, so I can understand your confusion.

OCMe...as a mother of 2, would you tell your children to wear sexy see through clothes so you could make money off them? I would never try to make money off my kids in that way, no matter how desperate I was for cash. I presume you think that's ok and that it was in her best interest to be exploited by them like that when she was a kid?

I am appalled. Her civil and legal righs have been taken away on a Dr's certificatrion and she has now been released. Her parents should not be taking care of her finances and her life. She is an adult. How dare the court stop her of retraining legal counsel. This is appaling and feels like 1920's Russia.

This jackass Streisand knew last week he could not represent her---we all did. The judge told him to stay away from her. He should not not have met with her yesterday. What a putz.

Gimme a break    

#76 If it was YOUR child on a crash course to destruction, what would you do? Let her go to protect her "civil rights", or do whatever you legally can to protect her life?

I don't believe Britney's parents are trying to get all her money. Even if they were, they certainly deserve it more than the bunch of leeches and hangers on that have planted themselves in Britney's life. They are losers and nobody's just hanging on her coatails. Her parents are making normal, sensible decisions for her because she can't do that for herself. I hope they unload the whole train of losers in Britney's life. Too bad it had to come to the point she lost her kids. GO MOM & DAD!!! Take control of the situation and do what's best for your daughter.

Mind your own business lawyer Streisand - go find another client, you leech!
Do you really think letting lunatic Britney regain control over her health care and money right now is actually going to help her in the long run? You know she'll just stop taking her medications, stop seeing a psychiatrist, and continue to blow her money and forget to pay her bills and credit cards.

Let Mr. Spears have a go at trying to help Britney straighten out her life and regain access to her kids.

Disgusted!!!!    

so now pepole are on teh band-wagon calling down Jamie Spears...Saying he's going to talk all her $$ and run. Good grief you people are so STUPID!!!!!!!!!! As a conservator, he is closely scrutinized by the courst, and in this case the media too, there is also a Co-conservator which means Jamie can't make all teh decision on his own.
Really folks....are you all this cynical and negative in respect with your own lives too, or just towards thise whom you don't know???

It sounds like she's left with Trope and Trope whether she likes it or not. That's pretty weak.

Where did he even come from? When did Britney have the time to hire him while she was in the hospital?

Let's all ask ourselves this: If your child (for those of you who HAVE children) was spiraling out of control, and it appeared she was being drugged and taken advantage of, what would you do? I sure as hell would step in - regardless of age. There's OBVIOUSLY some mental condition present with this girl.. and most of the influences in her life have not helped. Her Mom and Dad are her only hope. For those here who don't have children of their own... if and when you do - you will remember your comments here, as they will haunt you. Suicide is never a "cool" thing - it's a very permanent solution to a temporary problem. My well wishes go out to her and all of her family. Her career as she knew it is likely over, but she still has her life... for now at least.
