Best and others advising the couple resigned because their advice was ignored, sources told RadarOnline.com.

Best quit May 19, a day after the Salahis exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com. In that interview, the notorious gatecrashers said they wanted an apology for the way they were treated at the White House!

They were then busted days later trying to crash another White House event.

When asked by RadarOnline.com about his resignation, Best refused to confirm or deny the move: “I simply cannot comment… I have ethical and fiduciary obligations to Tareq and Michaele and must honor them by not commenting.”

We’re told the Salahis were given simple advice: no media interviews while the criminal investigations are pending.

Law enforcement authorities haven’t decided whether to charge the pair with a crime, and, if so, what crime to charge them with.

But in the last week, the fame-hunting socialites have turned up on NBC’s Today Show and MSNBC, in addition to their world exclusive with RadarOnline.com at their home in Virginia.

They also staged the now notorious drive-by of the White House last Wednesday, on the night of another state dinner, this one for President Felipe Calderon of Mexico.

In their interview with RadarOnline.com, the Salahis demanded an apology from White House for not being “gracious” to them.

“It would be nice if somebody apologized to us and for (the White House) to call it quits,” Tareq Salahi, along with his wife Michaele, told RadarOnline.com, exclusively.

“I would certainly not treat anyone this way that comes to my house, even if there was a question about an invitation, or there was some miscommunication… I would still welcome anyone and be gracious.”

Said Michaele: “The American way is to love people.”
