As anyone who reads the Hollywood gossip pages know, Britney Spears is in a custody battle with her ex-husband for her two kids. According to People.com, Britney’s divorce-custody lawyer Laura Wasser is parting ways with the popstar:
“I don’t want anyone to perceive that we’re dumping Britney,” Wasser added. “In a lot of attorney-client relationships, there comes a time when some fresh blood is necessary.”
I’m not sure what circumstances are necessary for “fresh blood.” But I think any client dis-engagement explanation containing the word “blood” can’t be a good thing. The next time you have a tough client, just remember, at least s/he is not Britney Spears.
Good luck to incoming attorney Marci Levine of Freid and Goldsman.
UPDATE: TMZ.com reports that Britney has a new lawyer (again), Sorrell Trope. He has a kind face. Maybe he can help her…
