Ugh, Britney. So much for starting 2008 off on the right foot. Today's another mess of stories and legal trouble. According to TMZ, Britney's deposition was scheduled to take place today, but for the fifth time she was a no show. This, combined with what I can only imagine is the biggest headache ever working for Brit, led her team of lawyers to file a petition to quit the case. The firm, Trope and Trope, had this to say, "There has been a breakdown in communications between [Britney] and Trope and Trope making further representation of her interests impossible." These guys were only able to stand a few short months working for the pop tart after her last legal team bailed in September.

Where was Britney this whole time? Well, she apparently checked into the Parker Hotel in Palm Springs with her photog buddy Adnan Ghalib at about 2 AM last night only to check out at 7 AM. I hate to expect the worst, but it sounds like Brit may be headed for even more disaster.
