UPDATE: 1:42pm: So nothing real important seems to be going on right now. Which is good because I need to leave to take my car to the shop. I’ll update when I get back.
UPDATE: 1:30pm: Oh crap, we missed it! Britney entered the court house on the DL. From TMZ: “Britney Spears got inside the courthouse on the down low, after circling the block several times. We’re waiting for K-Fed. Brit will probably testify later today. So far, only one of the six or seven witnesses has testified. We’re told as of now it looks like the hearing will go til sometime tomorrow.” – Britney’s In the Building!
UPDATE: It’s 1:25pm and Britney is still in the passenger’s seat of the Escalade, driving around the court house. I have to leave in about 15mins to take my car to the shop, but I should be back no later than 3:00. I have a feeling I’m going to miss it when she actually stops and gets out of the car (just my luck). Maybe she’ll still be going in circles when I get back.
UPDATE: 1:20pm: Yup, that was Britney in the Escalade. Round and round she goes…will she stop?…nobody knows!
UPDATE: It’s 1:12pm and it certainly looks like something is happening. It’s being said that Britney is in a black Escalade. If it’s the one I think it is, it just keeps going around the block. But there are a bunch of police stationed in bunch of places, so she must be close; I can hear choppers too.
UPDATE: It’s 12:50pm now and according to TMZ, Britney has left her home. She may or may not be heading towards the court house – it’s about a 20min drive without traffic. Stay tuned!
UPDATE: It’s 12:15pm now, still no Britney. Per TMZ: “the custody hearing has just gone into lunch recess. Brit’s lawyer just said he’s “hopeful” that Brit will show for the afternoon session.”
UPDATE: It’s 10:50 and still no sign of Britney.
Britney Spears was nowhere to be seen Monday as a court hearing convened in her child custody battle with ex-husband Kevin Federline.
Federline and his lawyer were on hand as Superior Court Commissioner Scott Gordon began the hearing, which was scheduled after Gordon earlier this month suspended Spears’ right to visit her two sons.
Gordon allowed reporters into the courtroom for about one minute before he announced that the hearing was being closed.
The commissioner granted a motion from Spears’ attorneys to quash a subpoena, but there was no information given about what the subpoena involved or to whom it had been issued…
…“I don’t know if she will be there” on Monday, Federline attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan told The Associated Press. “You can’t phone this one in.” Britney Spears was a no-show. Shocking – In Case You Didn’t Know
*** Beginning of original post. ***
Well Britney Spears was supposed to show up at the court house at 9:30 this morning.
It is now 9:53 and she has yet to show.
I will keep you updated.
If Britney doesn’t show up for this court date, it is very likely that she will not be able to see her children at all until the custody trial which starts in April. I REALLY hope she shows. If she doesn’t, maybe the judge will order her to be hospitalized against her will. If she doesn’t show, she’s extremely mentally ill and needs extreme help. Of course, I’ve been saying this for about a year now.
9:57, still no Brit-Brit.
TMZ.com has live streaming video from both the front entrance and the back one.
Kevin Federline, on the other hand, arrived right on time.
