After weeks of missed depositions and court appointments, the firm representing Britney Spears in her custody battle with ex-husband Kevin Federline has had enough.

After Spears missed yet another deposition on Wednesday, Britney Spears’ law firm, Trope and Trope, asked a court to be relieved of their responsibilities as Spears attorneys. The firm claims there’s been a “breakdown in communication” with the popwreck, making their job "impossible."


Federline currently has custody of the couple’s two sons, Jayden James and Sean Preston, after Spears repeatedly defied court orders.


This is Spears’ fifth legal team in almost as many months.
