Britney Loses Lawyer, Manager, Now Kids?

If you thought last week was rough for Britney Spears, you should check out this week. After the media launched brutal assault on the former pop princess following her VMA disappointment, people closer to home are turning their backs on her as well.

On Monday, her lawyer, famed divorce maven Laura Wasser, parted ways with Britney, saying, "I don't want anyone to perceive that we're dumping Britney. In a lot of attorney-client relationships, there comes a time when some fresh blood is necessary." Later that afternoon, her manager, Jeff Kwatinetz, also announced he would be leaving her. “It saddens us to confirm media reports that we have terminated our professional relationship with Britney Spears," his agency said in a statement. "We believe Britney is enormously talented, and has made a terrific record. But current circumstances have prevented us from properly doing our job. We wish Britney the best.” Word on the street is that Kwatinetz was pissed at Britney for partying late into the night before her big VMA show.

And just to kick her while she's down, it appears she's about to lose temporary custody of her two kids. After receiving certain unknown information about Britney over the weekend, the Los Angeles family court reportedly plans to order the boys to be turned over to Kevin Federline later today.
