Britney Spears loses custody of children.



Hands up who didn't see this coming. Britney has lost custody of both her children.
From today's daily mail...

"The order from LA County Superior Court judge Scott Gordon comes after Britney, 25, ignored the Commissioner's list of requirements of things she needed to do in order to maintain 50/50 custody.

Which included meeting with a drug counsellor, submitting to twice-weekly drug-testing, and enrolling in parenting classes.

The judge also banned either parent from taking drugs or drinking up to 12 hours before caring for the boys.

According to celebrity website TMZ, Britney failed to meet any of the judges requirements.

Last Friday, Commissioner Gordon banned both Spears and Federline from driving the children unless they had a valid California driver's licence. But on the weekend, Britney was allegedly seen driving her two children around LA without a valid licence.


She was already being investigated for the alleged hit-and-run and for driving without a licence in August, offences for which she was warned she faced up to a year in prison.

The driving offences likely compelled the judge to issue Monday's orders, said New York divorce lawyer Raoul Felder.

"She was driving without a license with a child in the car," he said.


"You can put aside the in and out of rehab, the shaving her head. But this? When a judge went out on a limb for her? There's no going back."

Britney has faced a barrage of criticism over her high-profile lifestyle, including court allegations that she was a "habitual and continuous" user of drink and drugs.

The judge said Federline, an aspiring rapper, was to "retain physical custody of the minor children until further order of the court".


I'm not sure what went wrong in this girl's head but this has been coming for more than three years. While I think it is a total tragedy for any parent to lose their children, I think it is probably better in this case for the moment that the two children Britney has are made safe and she gets enough time to do whatever the hell it is she needs to do to get her bead together.
The fact that she handed the children over early and then went tanning and shopping shows a woman so disconnected from reality it's frightening.

Who would have thought Kevin Federline would come out as the responsible one?

It could be the making of him, or it may just be a matter of time before they're made wards of court.

She's still in that celebrity (it can't happen to me ) bubble. She thinks she's invisible or a different set of rules apply to her.

This is the best outcome for her children, gives K-Fed a job and might (though I doubt it) shock Ms Spears into motherhood and responsibility.

I wonder how maternal she is. Perhaps on a level with Kate Moss on that one. She seems to be out most nights, add in work commitments. Surely they must be strangers to their children?

I wonder about that too, If you're out half the night you're probabaly sleeping in most of the following day. When do you get to do the normal things with your children?

Yup, there must be an in-bed-by-midnight glass ceiling for would-be celebrities who are parents. It's so unfair. I blame the children.

She was just too damn young for any of that shit. The fame, the money, all that sexpot rubbish. Then the marriage to an IDIOT, and having offspring?

Too young, too young, too young.

And now she's doing the stupid shit and making the bad decisions she should have finished with in high school. Only in the public eye, and with two kids who will suffer for it.

I blame her parents.

True, but then so did Christina and that toilet brush Justin.
Say Andraste, are you recovered from the drinkathon?

But Missus, you have a right to celebrity too! And you can't get your picture in the papers unless you're out on the lash at 'openings' and 'launches', and falling out of trendy nite spots with young ginger hotties in the early hours while displaying your nethers.

Fully recovered and up and at 'em, Cat.

Though the roller coaster begins again tomorrow, with the MLB playoffs...

Whatever about the hotties Conan, but my lady patch is staying well covered.
Andraste, eeekk, there's no rest is there? I"m going to The Playboy of The Western World tomorrow night, there is sure to be a pre/mid/post drink or two.

Look at the picture of over at Dlisted.
She looks like she just got out of jail.
Very sad altogether.

I know, she's either on serious uppers or she's absolutely relieved to be free of any and all responsibility.
God damn it, Why am I still here and not half way through a 10k run? Anyone ever get like that? Total heel dragging. Where's MElvin when you need him?

I'm with Andraste - she was too young for any of it. What a mess. Poor wee kids.

Well, she surrendered the kids two days early, and has already been spotted prancing about with her arse hanging out.

Neat blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?

A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog jump out.
Please let me know where you got your theme. Thanks a lot
