Abstract. We prove that $C^r$-smooth ($r>2$) circle diffeomorphisms with a break, i.e., circle diffeomorphisms with a single singular point where the derivative has a jump discontinuity, are generically, i.e., for almost all irrational rotation numbers, not $C^{1+ arepsilon}$-rigid, for any $ arepsilon>0$. This result complements our recent proof, joint with K. Khanin, that such maps are generically $C^1$-rigid. It stands in remarkable contrast to the result of J.-C. Yoccoz that $C^r$-smooth circle diffeomorphisms are generically $C^{r-1- arkappa}$-rigid, for any $ arkappa>0$.
