Britney Spears' Lawyers: We Want Out!

by at . Comments

The lawyers representing Britney Spears in her custody battle are quitting.

The law firm Trope and Trope asked the court Wednesday to be formally relieved as Spears' attorneys. The firm cited a "breakdown" in communication with the troubled pop princess that makes representing her impossible.

Spears and ex-husband Kevin Federline have been wrangling for months over custody of their sons, 2-year-old Sean Preston and 1-year-old Jayden James.

FedEx has temporary custody because Spears, who has limited visitation rights, has defied court orders. A lot. She's also a drunk, and a little bit unstable.

Britney Spears and Kevin Federline married in October 2004, separated near the end of 2006 and finalized their divorce in July of 2007. They have two l'il mistakes.

On a separate legal front, an attorney for Spears wants the city attorney's office to prove that the star is a permanent California resident and thus subject to state laws that require her to have a valid California driver's license.

Spears faces up to a year's probation if convicted of driving without a valid license, a charge to which she has pleaded not guilty. The case stems from a videotaped fender bender in a parking lot in August. A hit-and-run charge was dismissed.

Spears' attorney, J. Michael Flanagan, requested Wednesday that prosecutors be required to demonstrate that Spears, who also owns homes in Louisiana and Florida, intends to make Los Angeles her permanent legal home.

Flanagan said Britney Spears had a valid Louisiana driver's license during the incident and got a California license six days after the complaint was filed.


My heart goes out to Britney Spears. No matter what mistakes she has made or bad choices she has made, she is still a child of God. Instead of making judgments about her and joining in with all of the slander, I say we do something constructive for her. If we all would pray for her like her Mom asked then maybe we would see different results. There is power in prayer and Britney needs our prayers. I have never been a Britney fan or have really listened to her music, I just love people. When I read articles, every day, about Britney and how she has been deteriorating it breaks my heart and I know that it breaks God's heart. She is His child and He loves her. Our job is to PRAY!!!!!! Pray that Britney will get well, get in touch with who she is and become that person God intends for her to be. Enough is enough! Britney you have my love and prayers!!!


wtf is up with CONSTANTLY calling those babies 2 lil mistakes? I don't really give a rats a$$ who said it or's old, no longer funny...and pathetic that people have to CONTINUE to make articles with it in there. Damn near every one of your articles with the kids involved say that exact phase. For the love of all things holy...drop it


Brit needs to pull herself together, regain custody of her kids, buy creepy Federline out of her life (you know he'll say yes $$) and get the f*** out of this country for awhile. Now that the courts, SS workers and shrinks have their claws in her, they'll continue to torture and abuse her over every petty little thing until they drive her over the edge. Run for your life, Brit and take the kids with you!!!
