K-Fed gets full
physical and legal
custody; Britney loses
Kevin Federline was granted temporary full physical and legal custody of his and Britney Spears' children at an emergency hearing held in an LA courthouse today. Britney's visitation rights with the children, Sean Preston and Jayden James, have been suspended. Upon exiting the LA courthouse, Kevin's attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, told In Touch , "I'm not happy about any of these events going on," adding, "There are no winners." The order is in effect until January 14, when there will be a hearing to determine where the case goes.
Earlier today, Britney Spears' lawyer Tara Scott left the chambers looking extremely unhappy alongside Kaplan after a 20-minute meeting behind closed doors. According to insiders, the mood at the courthouse was somber as people were still in shock over the events that took place last night. Just yesterday, Scott filed legal papers requesting that Trope and Trope be removed from Britney's case, citing a "breakdown in communication" between the law firm and the troubled pop star.
