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.
