Spears’ lawyer wants out

Britney SpearsBritney Spears‘ lawyer, Sorrel Trope, has asked to quit because of a “communication breakdown” between himself and the pop wreck, “making further representation of her interests impossible.” In other words, Spears doesn’t listen to a word he says. She did not show up for her scheduled deposition on January 2nd; the fifth time she’s been a no-show. Trope has worked for Spears in her child custody case against ex-husband Kevin Federline since September, but his firm filed papers on Wednesday to withdraw from her case, according to TMZ.com. Spears has been going through attorneys at lightning speed: her first attorney in the case resigned in September. Spears then hired Freid & Goldsman, but fired them after just a few days before hiring Trope.

    She or her handlers are masters of publicity. She farts and they pull reporters off the presidential race to cover event.
    With due respect to Fart if you love Celine.

    I think she should just represent herself! That way if she don’t show, then her lawyer doesn’t show and does not have to make excuses for her. Also, she will always listen to herself and know what she is up to. I have to admit that I will never understand the antics of a crackhead!

    What a train wreck. Suppose Kevin is the lesser of the two evils…Poor kids!

    The sad reality is that she has no family, no support system, no love. Just the paparazzi and the record company. I really do believe that if she doesn’t get help, she will become the Anna Nicole Smith of 2008. For real.

    She needs to go away for a while and stop “entertaining” the paparazzi and focus on getting healthy so she can win the judge over to get her kids back. Otherwise, it’s just a matter of time before we see her dead body on the CNN news screen. Sad to say it but I believe that is the road she is going down. Her mother should hang her head in shame to have raised daughters who don’t have self esteem, lack moral values and surround themselves with bad people. Now Jamie Lynn is pregnant at 16. A truly bad example of parenting gone terribly wrong.

    I wish them peace, a content heart and that they would all get their lives back on track…sooner rather than later.

    Somebody invovled with her had better get serious and get her help or they’ll find her floating in the pool. Anna nicole smith all over again and so many others that become throw away.

    Not to worry, there will always be another slime-ball lawyer waiting in the wings to take her money. The more lawyers she goes through, the higher the fee from the next one will be – kind of like hazard pay!

    Yeah, where is Howard K. Stern when you need him?? LOL.

    I know that the people in the Entertainment world give up alot of their privacy, but to watch how the TV reporters and Magazine (ANIMALS) I MEAN PEOPLE act hunting her daily 24/7. Where are the police the courts. Where are the people that are suppose to be guiding her. W H E R E IS H E R “M O T H E R”!!!
    and as for Kevin Federline a knowbody who became somebody after his marriage to Brittany only moved to her after Shar, as the P A Y C H E Q U E became alot bigger.
