Celebrity attorney Laura Wasser is reportedly about to withdraw as matrimonial counsel to pop singer Britney Spears.
Tired of dealing with a difficult client who has rejected her advice and created problems with a previously agreed 50/50 child custody split, Wasser is about to end the representation now that Spears' divorce is concluded, writes TMZ.com.
Wasser is to be replaced as Spears' counsel in the ongoing child custody battle by Mel Goldsman and Marci Levine, the well-known celebrity blog says.
In a filed statement in the custody case over her two boys, aged 1 and 2, a former bodyguard now contends that Spears has "nudity, drug use and safety issues post-rehab," according to Fox News.
