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.
In this image taken from video and released by TMZ, Britney Spears arrives to court in Los Angeles Monday, Jan. 14, 2008 for her child custody ruling. Superior Court commissioner decided Monday to keep in effect an earlier order suspending Britney Spears’ right to visit her two sons and keeping them in ex-husband Kevin Federline’s custody.
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.
