Britney Skips Deposition Due To Illness

Written by admin. Posted in Custody Battle

Britney Spears was unable to attend her court-ordered deposition Wednesday morning due to an illness, a lawyer for Kevin Federline announced.

“I was told of a general [medical] condition, and [Spears] felt she couldn’t attend,” Mark Vincent Kaplan said outside his Los Angeles office.

A new date was selected, but not revealed. Federline’s attorney indicated he “will pursue” a court sanction against the pop star for failing to show.

Spears’s testimony was expected to last no more than a day. The pop star, 26, is battling ex-husband Federline, 29, over custody of sons Preston, 2 and Jayden, 1. Federline currently has primary physical custody, with supervised visitation for Spears.

Kaplan already has completed a number of depositions of former Spears associates, including pal Alli Sims, former manager Larry Rudolph, and former bodyguard Daimon Shippen.

On Oct. 26, a court forbid her deposition from being videotaped. At that hearing, Kaplan complained that Spears had evaded a deposition four times over the course of a year.

Britney To Give Her Deposition To Kevin's Lawyer Today

Written by admin. Posted in Custody Battle

Britney Spears undergoes questioning Wednesday by Kevin Federline’s lawyers in their ongoing custody case, PEOPLE confirms.

A source close to the case expects Spears’s testimony, taken under oath, to last no more than one day. It begins in the morning at the offices of Federline’s attorneys.

Spears, 26, is battling ex-husband Federline, 29, over custody of sons Preston, 2 and Jayden, 1. Last month, they agreed to share time with the children on Christmas, but a final custody arrangement remains unresolved. Federline currently has primary physical custody, with supervised visitation for Spears.

It’s expected that Spears will be grilled about her past drug and alcohol use, her alleged failure to follow court orders, and anything that reveals whether she’s a fit mother.

“A deposition can be emotionally draining, because Kevin’s lawyer can ask very personal questions about her relationship with her kids – and she’ll be under oath,” explains L.A. family lawyer Lynn Soodik, who’s not involved with the case.

Federline’s lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, has already completed a number of depositions of former Spears associates, including pal Alli Sims, former manager Larry Rudolph, and former bodyguard Daimon Shippen.

Spears will be accompanied to the appointment by her legal team lead by Sorrell Trope, and a court stenographer will also be present.

On Oct. 26, a court forbid her deposition from being videotaped. At that hearing, Kaplan complained that Spears had evaded a deposition four times over the course of a year.

Private Britney Pics Could End Up Being Released

Written by admin. Posted in Personal Issues

BRITNEY SPEARS is facing more embarrassment after failing to get a photographer she hired for a family photo session to sign a confidentiality agreement.

The troubled pop superstar invited Dani Brubaker into her California home last week (ends07Dec07) to take a holiday photograph of her and her two sons Sean Preston, two, and Jayden James, one. The images were meant to be for Spears’ personal use only – but shortly after the snaps were taken, Brubaker released a press statement bragging about the private shoot. And the intimate family pictures could now end up being sold off, because Brubaker was never asked to sign a privacy contract.

A source tells MSNBC’s The Scoop, “She (Brubaker)’s just another person in a long line of people trying to profit from Britney Spears. “Britney had no confidentiality agreement in place, so this photographer was able to tell the world that this photo shoot, which was meant to be a sweet family affair, not a publicity stunt, took place.

“(Spears) was choosing a photographer who had no reason to be faithful to Britney. Who knows whether Dani will turn around down the road and sell the proofs. It shows that there is no one advising this poor girl.” Representatives for Brubaker have yet to comment on the situation.
