Brit's Former Assistant Found ... and She's Talking!

8/14/2007 3:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

While K-Fed's lawyers were tying to reach Brit-Brit's former assistant Shannon Funk at home, she was having a girl's night out with OK! magazine staff in NYC. And in the continuing saga of Brit's fantastic train wreckical life, we've learned that it's Shannon who's the source for the juicy new tell-all from an "unnamed employee" that the mag is featuring this week. Confidentiality agreements be damned!

TMZ spotted Funk, who worked for Spears for an all-too-brief three weeks before being fired by the demanding diva July 25, out in the Big Apple on Sunday night with OK! senior reporter Shauna Bass and photo director Maria Collazo. Of course, Funk was the assistant who was with Spears at her chicken-grease-smearing, public-peeing debacle of a photo shoot with OK! a few weeks back. That's irony, mmmkay?

Sources tell TMZ that K-Fed's lawyer Mark Vincent Kaplan placed several calls to Funk's mother's home in the past few days an effort to track her down. Kaplan's hoping that her testimony, along with the testimony of Spears' other ass-istant/cousin Alli Sims, will prove that K-Fed should have full custody of the couple's two kids, Jayden and Sean.

You can't take away the kids just because mom has no class. It's not like Kevin has any class. He just knows how to lay low for his image to get more money from Britney.

I garentee you once he got the money he will party around town with all the skanks and hos having their pictures taken.

Maybe her ex isn't a model Dad. Come on, they both did that stupid reality show! Recently She strips down & takes a dip in the ocean w/ all the Paps cameras clicking away.. She has no private life but she brings it on herself. She did that bad NBC interview & begged for the press to leave her alone, but LOOK at her behavior! She lives for attention, even if it is negative!!! The kids suffer the most in this.. Britt photo opp w/ the kids will be coming soon- just wait. Her ex may not be the best guy, but just by not having his life on display makes him look so much better than her. Her record label will drop her soon enough, but she will find some way to stay in the spotlight! She won't settle for anything less, no matter how sad her life gets. Celeb kids will grow up to write great tell-all books!

Sarah Silverman SUCKS!    

If she did sign a confidentiality agreement I hope Britney sues her! Look at what happened to JLo's ex-husband.

I didn't know brit's ex-personal assistant was transgender. Good for her/him! You should spend whatever money OK is giving you for a new face, because damn, it, you are ugly!! Use quickly before you have to hand that money over to Brit after she sues the snot out of you!

This bitch was fired and she will have nothing nice to say about Brittany Spears,
you can bet your sweet little tutu's she will say things just to make it worst than it
ever was and anything she's heard since beig fired will also be added with some
fabrication and at the and if that moron K-Fed wins she will be well rewarded by the
loser Fed and also get the satisfaction that she got "even" for being fired by BRITTANY
SPEARS.

Kevin is part of the reason for her downfall...He has been after her money from the beginning...getting custody of the boys will only further his financial gain...

i saw the cover of the next oK : she claims to be the lover of Britney. they use photos from the same party where US claims she was with that student.
one of both (or both) lies. all they want is to use Britney's fame and put her down (things she can do herself without help).
and i think that nor Britney nor Kevin are good parents.
