Britney Flees Before Judge Decrees

January 15, 2008

LOS ANGELES – Britney Spears went to a courthouse Monday but abruptly left amid a swarm of paparazzi without attending a hearing in her child-custody battle with her ex-husband, missing a chance to try to persuade a commissioner to restore her visitation rights to her two little boys.

Instead, the Superior Court commissioner heard a day of closed-door testimony from Kevin Federline and witnesses to a bizarre situation this month in which police took the pop singer to a hospital after a standoff in her home when she refused to return the boys to Federline’s bodyguard after a visit.

Britney: Paging Dr. Phil

Britney Spears, who has been embarked upon a very public and prolonged saga of self destruction and drug and alcohol abuse, was released from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center last night to the custody of TV head expert Doctor Phil.

“Dr. Phil” McGraw said Britney Spears, though now free of the hospital, still needs psychological help.

Dr. McGraw is the psychologist known for his own shrink show – one of the most watched daytime TV shows seen mostly by women.

Miss Spears was taken by ambulance from her Hollywood home Friday night because of a dispute involving the two sons she had with ex-husband Kevin Federline.

“My meeting with Britney and some family members this morning in her room at Cedars leaves me convinced more than ever that she is in dire need of both medical and psychological intervention,” said the brilliant Dr. McGraw.

“She was released moments before my arrival and was packing when I entered the room. We visited for about an hour before I walked with her to her car. I am very concerned for her,” he said.

McGraw planned to talk more about Miss Spears on his daytime talk show this week, a press release said.

Isn’t that special.

Responding to an e-mail request for further comment from McGraw, a “Dr. Phil” publicist referred The Associated Press to his statement posted on the etonline.com Web site.

LOS ANGELES – Britney Spears was derailed yet again in her struggle to get her life back on track, losing custody of her two sons to ex-husband Kevin Federline. A court commissioner Friday gave sole physical and legal custody of the former couple’s two little boys to Federline and suspended the troubled pop star’s visitation rights.

Spears was hauled away from her home to a hospital by paramedics a day before, after police had to intervene when she refused to return the children to Federline after a court-monitored visit.

Commissioner Scott Gordon ordered another hearing to be held Jan. 14.

Federline had previously been awarded temporary custody of 2-year-old Sean Preston and 1-year-old Jayden James because Spears has defied court orders, resulting in limitations….
