BRITNEY'S ATTORNEY: I QUIT (CelebTV.com, January 02, 2008)
Heather Mills is not the only recent celebrity to have problems keeping her lawyer. Now Britney Spears' latest attorney wants out of Britney's custody dispute.
"CelebTV.com is the first to reveal that Britney Spears' divorce attorney, Sorrell Trope, is seeking to drop his troubled client. On Jan. 2, Trope filed a motion in L.A. Superior Court to be relieved as Spears' counsel, saying he could no longer represent the singer's interests.
'There has been a breakdown in communications between Petitioner and Trope and Trope [law firm] making further representation of her interests impossible,' reads the document.
Trope has been representing Spears in her ongoing custody battle with Kevin Federline. A hearing on Trope's motion to be relieved as counsel is scheduled for Feb. 4, 2008."
