(Newser) – Britney Spears is now such a massive trainwreck that even her lawyers can't deal with her. The law firm representing her filed paperwork yesterday asking to be removed from the ongoing case to determine final custody of her two young sons. Brit reportedly missed a rescheduled deposition that was set after she skipped out on the first date.

"There has been a breakdown in communications between Petitioner and Trope & Trope making further representation of her interests impossible," the motion states. The company has been working with Spears since September, ever since she and her previous lawyer parted ways.
