Britney is “very optimistic” that she’ll get her sons back as she completes the judge’s checklist, the singer’s close friend Sam Lufti told People magazine.
Sam Lufti, whom Kevin Federline’s camp attempted to subpoena in the ongoing custody battle, reminded People magazine in an e-mail that Kevin getting custody is “temporary.”
“We … signed all the necessary documents that she needed to get done,” he said. Britney, he added, is “in a good mood, no problems, very optimistic.”
Monday a judge granted Kevin physical custody of Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1, “until further order of the court.” Sam Lufti told People magazine that what led to the ruling was just a misunderstanding.
“Scheduling conflicts and errors in communication led her to believe that her deadline was later this week rather than Monday,” Sam Lufti said. “However, once we finally realized what was going on, we completed the list of tasks. …So everything’s looking good.”
At least one of the judge’s requirements, however, remains unfulfilled.
Britney, facing a misdemeanor charge of driving without a valid license, went to the DMV on Monday to get a California license to replace her Louisiana card, but DMV spokesperson Jan Mendoza says Britney hasn’t yet finished the application process.
“As of now, she’s not legally able to drive in California,” said Jan Mendoza.
“Britney Spears is still unlicensed,” Jan Mendoza adds. “She does have a pending application. She’s very close to getting a California license.”
Another hearing in the custody case is set for Wednesday.
I hope that Britney will just hire a driver! She should just quit driving….she can afford it!
