Following the lead of Laura Wasser, Jeff Kwatinetz has effectively told Britney Spears, "B!tch, you someone else's problem now!"
Yes, Britney Spears' manager has officially jumped ship, and the reasons sound strangely similar to her former lawyer's gripes about the singer.
Jeff Kwatinetz, who took over for Larry Rudolph, said "It saddens us to confirm media reports that we have terminated our relationship with Britney Spears."
Noting Kwatinetz repped Brit for a grand total of one month, he continued, "We believe Britney is enormously talented, and has made a terrific record, but current circumstances prevent us from properly doing our job."
So what are the circumstances?
Maybe they're similar to what we hear about Laura Wasser said, that Britney makes terrible decisions in judgment and simply could not be controlled.
Sources close to the matter say Jeff Kwatinetz had similar problems, such as at the VMAs, when Britney decided to switch the costume she planned to wear for that glittery bikini, without telling anyone. We all know what happened next.
After the VMAs, Jeff Kwatinetz and his firm demanded to meet with her, but she refused. They felt she needed help, but she wouldn't hear it. Shocking.
Since the performance, Britney Spears has kept a low profile, moving into a new Malibu home with sons Sean Preston Federline, 2, and Jayden James Federline, 1.
Yesterday, lawyer Gloria Allred revealed that former a Spears bodyguard, Tony Barretto, is willing to testify at her custody case "on issues of nudity... drug use and safety issues involving [Spears'] children, post-rehab."
