Brit's Former Assistant -- You Got Served!

8/15/2007 10:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Shannon Funk -- a one-time assistant to Britney Spears -- was welcomed at the Long Beach airport last night by a wall of paparazzi ... and a subpoena!

TMZ cameras were outside the baggage claim after Funk was served with papers from Kevin Federline's attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan -- adding the former Team Britney member to a growing list of people being used against Spears in the nasty custody battle. Brit's cousin/assistant Alli was served early Sunday morning and the singer's bodyguard/"manny" got his subpoena the following day.

Although she was a bit POed at her unwelcoming arrival, Funk did manage to crack a smile as the paps grilled her about her former boss, keeping her lips tighter than Britney's weave as she made her way out. Funk-y!

Is that Britney's lesbian pool pal?‘BI’ BRIT
August 15, 2007 -- Maybe Britney Spears is more interested in being with a mom.

The pop tart was spied frolicking in a pool with another topless woman in exclusive photos obtained by OK! magazine.

The mystery woman playing touch-and-kiss with Spears in the rooftop pool at the Standard Downtown Hotel in L.A. is the singer’s one-time assistant Shannon Funk.

But Britney has also made moves on porn star Jenna Jameson and has kissed at least 15 women in her life, the magazine is reporting.

OK! quotes Jameson, fellow adult star Tera Patrick and an anonymous former employee as sources. They all say Spears is a recreational lesbian.

It wasn’t immediately clear if reports of Spears’ lesbian trysts would have any impact on her custody battle with ex-hubby Kevin Federline, 29.

K-Fed’s lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, declined to bash Spears, but said his client would provide an “appropriate” setting for their children.

“What Kevin wants is a custody arrangement that’s more appropriate for the kids,” Kaplan said outside court.

Spears and Federline were not required to attend yesterday’s hearing and didn’t show up.

Lawyers for Spears, 25, and K-Fed are due back in court on Sept. 14.

Since their separation earlier this year, they’ve shared custody of sons 22-month-old Sean Preston and 10-month-old Jayden James.

K-Fed’s lawyer confirmed his client is seeking more time with his kids - but wants many details of the courtroom fight kept under wraps.

“It would be best for the children that they not be exposed,” Kaplan said.

Sean and Jayden appear healthy and cared for. These children are doing fine with Britney. Lots of parents party. So what? Why doesn't K-fud work for a living instead of riding the Britney train forever.

GET A JOB KEVIN..............YOU ARE 29 YEARS OLD..........

I just think Britney would be better off if she just took a break for a while, from her professional career. let some time pass and then make a come back. Mostly I think her problem is that no one can be an underdog, and make a come back if you don't appear to take time to reflect and "change". Right now, she is feeding the fire. It makes a better story for her to fail than succeed.

It is a shame. I always saw her as a professional smart woman until the Fed-Ex and Brit realty show. Then I saw her as a stupid girl based on her video realty show.

I want to root for her. But it just is so slimey right now, how can I root for someone that isn't rooting for herself.

It is a shame.....

How much could this girl even know having only worked for Britney about one month? Don't think she's knows anymore than has already been told.
