Today Britney Spears' lawyers made it clear they want out.
But it's not that easy. After meeting in chambers with Commissioner Scott Gordon, the matter was continued to February 19.
The gist: Gordon wants to make sure when Trope and Trope says bye bye Brit, someone is already in place to handle the case.
The Commish wants Trope and Trope to come back with a plan and wants to know specifically who's coming in to rep Spears.
Sorrell Trope and an attorney for Kevin Federline emerged from the court session without comment. The matter will resume Tuesday.
Trope cited communication problems with Britney (seen here with mother Lynne Spears), as has Laura Wasser, his predecessor - and possible replacement.
After a shopping trip with mom and a rigorous dance workout at Millennium Dance Complex in North Hollywood yesterday, Britney Spears was visited by boyfriend Adnan Ghalib around 8:00 p.m. at her Summit Circle estate.
Adnan Ghalib must be on Jamie Spears' good side - Britney's pop can restrict who visits her, as her estate's conservator - as the celebrity news photographer came through the security gates outside her place without incident.
