Britney Spears, the celebrity pop star, in a court ruling has lost the custody of her two sons to her ex beau Kevin Federline. The court commissioner declared her as an unfit mother and stripped her of visitation rights. The ruling, as apprehended, could be influenced by Britney’s sudden hospitalization with the rumors of being drugged and intoxicated as well as her violating the court orders in the recent past.
The verdict is out. Judges have declared that Britney Spears is unfit to be a mother. Ending much apprehension of the legal battle between Britney and Kevin Federline, the celebrity speaker is declared as an unfit mother.
The court in its ruling has passed the custodian rights of the two boys to Britney’s former husband Federline. The court commissioner have also suspended the visitation rights of the troubled pop star.
Talks are doing round that Britney’s latest hospitalization with the rumors of her being drugged and intoxicated has turned the case around her. Family law attorney Joshua Forman of the New York firm Chemtob Moss Forman & Talbert has termed it as ‘awful’ gesture from the media maintaining that the pop singer being taken out of her house on strecher has nothing to do with intoxication.
Britney on the other hand had refused to hand over her two kids Sean Preston and Jayden James to Federline when her alloted visitation has ended, a gesture that many of the legal experts termed as ‘slapping on the judge’s face’. Spears’ defing the court orders had Federline been awarded temporary custody of Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1, previously.
It must be remembered that this is not the first occasion of Britney being accused of the charge of contempt to court. In this one case itself Spears had flouted the court orders a number of times. Earlier she had not responded to her random drug test orders. On last Wednesday, 2nd January,2008, she had not shown up to her deposition only to appear late the following day.
"She has probably been given way more chances than the average person in her situation," Lois Liberman of the New York firm Blank Rome told the media accepting to the fact that she is obviously violating the court orders.
Spears and Federline were married in October 2004. Her life has spiraled downward since their July divorce, and she has spent time in rehab. Britney has been photographed by the papparatzis on a number of occasions of handling her kids irresponsibly.
Talking to the media, Britney Spears’ mother Lynn Spears requested her fans to pray for the singer. However she did not disclose anything on the condition of her daughter. The singers father, Jamie, is staying at the hospital beside his eldest daughter.
It must be remembered that the court orders and stripping Britney of the visitation rights is just a temporary arrangement due to the celebrity singers violation of court orders in a repeated manner. The law leaves enough scope for Britney to compete for the possession of her sons in future. Experts feel the legal battle is yet to end. In the coming days this battle could be one case that could cost upto millions. However, currently millions of fans will be praying for the singer expecting her to come out of the rehabilation at the earliest.
