Britney must hand over custody of her sons to Kevin Federline this week “until further notice of the court,” a judge ruled Monday after a closed-door hearing.
L.A. Superior Court Commissioner Scott Gordon gave no reasons in his written decision, issued after lawyers met with him in a private session requested by Kevin’s lawyer. The ruling says that Kevin gets custody starting Wednesday.
But the ruling came after the filing of misdemeanor charges against Britney – hit-and-run and driving without a valid California license – and claims by her ex-bodyguard that she used drugs and is a danger to her children, Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1.
Scott Gordon also previously found that Britney is a “habitual, frequent and continuous” user of alcohol and controlled substances, and ordered her to submit to random twice-weekly testing.
The singer, who has 50-50 custody with Kevin, was seen around town with her children over the weekend, and on Sunday they had an early dinner at Taverna Tony in Malibu.
“She seemed fine,” the restaurant’s owner, Tony Koursaris, says. “She was very comfortable having dinner here with her boys. … The kids had a good time. Then we had to fight the paparazzi, of course.”
OMG! I can’t believe that it has come to this. It is so sad. 🙁
