According to Life & Style magazine, in the midst of some extremely negative publicity, the troubled Pop Tart fired her assistant, Shannon Funk, this past Wednesday (July 25), because she thought Funk was more trouble than she was worth.
Sources close to Britney say that the singer fired Funk because she felt a lot of her recent troubles were due to her assistant, and she couldnt take it anymore.
An insider adds, Britney thought Shannon was talking badly about her. She was very rude and Britney felt she was letting business emails fall by the wayside.
Funk is just the latest in a long list of people that Spears has cut out of her life during her infamous meltdowns.
Her mother Lynne Spears, has been publicly bashed by Brit numerous times, and her former assistant, cousin Alli Sims, parted ways with the star last month.
