Britney's Mouthpiece Muzzled

9/4/2007 1:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Laura Wasser Britney SpearsTMZ was in court a few minutes ago, while Britney and K-Fed's lawyers were duking it out over custody.

The judge asked if County Counsel was present. You'll recall, County Counsel represents the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services, which had been investigating if Britney was guilty of bad dental hygiene for her kids. We were told that investigation was all but closed.

Today, Wasser pretty much made it clear -- DCFS has closed the investigation. Responding to the judge's question about County Counsel, Wasser said, "They're not coming. This is much adieu about ..." Before she could say "nothing," K-Fed's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, jumped up and asked the judge to clear the courtroom of media. We left, but the cat's out of the bag.

I think the best interest of the children should be on everyones's mind. Brittany is not hiding her madness. If it were anyone else the children would be put into a wsafe haven.

I fear she may hurt those children. That is my main concern......

Eventual DCFS is going to tell FedEx and his lawyers to stop calling just to get this issue in the press to try and make his case more sympathetic.

They are just trying to shake down Britney for more $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ by taking every molehill and pretending that it's a mountain or creating the mountain out of thin air in hopes of getting a big settlement.

ADIEU? Are your staffers REALLY that dumb?

Good God, Harvey, spend some bucks so you can stop hiring writers from Ronald Reagan Elementary School, Mrs. Smith's 3rd grade class.

whatev, you're the moron. Yes, adieu is the French word for bidding farewell but they're not saying that. You're not even paying attention to the context.

So what if she is smoking cigs in front of her children, and who has not given their kids some soda and or candy? You people need to get a damn life if you want to get on someone do it to the money hungry k-fed, I'm not a fan of Brits but she shouldn't have to pay a penny to him. Have you ever thought that maybe she is getting her act together, no all you want to do is talk about her smoking in front the kids. Most of you don't have sense enough to get out of the rain.

Bogus claims? The woman is a terrible Mother. Kfed doesn't need to make things up, we've all seen them for ourselves. Her kids ARE NOT number one on her list. SHE comes first. Waking up the babies at all hours in the morning so a drunk, drugged Brit can see them? Yeah, that a real motherly thing. It's probably because KFed told her that HERS is the first face the kids should see in the mornings. I guess that is her version of it!. After a night on the town. I'm not saying she shouldn't have some fun but life is NOT a constant party when you have kids that need nuturing, and attention. Other start Moms have time for their kids, you see them out in their old clothes playing and having fun with them. Brits Mom moments always seem posed. You're really missing something, girl. No one loves you like your kids (well, at least when they're little). Wake up! Life isn't about you and your privates.

JUST BECAUSE SHE GIVES HER KIDS DAMN CHEETOS AND A COKE DOES NOT MEAN SHES A BAD MOTHER. I GIVE MY 2 YEAR OLD DORITOS AND COKE BUT NOT 24/7. ALSO IF YOUR GOING TO GO AFTER BRIT FOR SMOKING WITH HER KIDS PRESENT YOU MIGHT AS WELL GO AFTER EVERYONE ELSE THAT SMOKES. YOU CANT TAKE SOMEONES KIDS JUST BECAUSE THEY SMOKE. WELL IT DEPENDS ON WHAT YOURE SMOKING. ANYWAY HIS SPOUSAL SUPPORT ENDS NOVEMBER AND HES JUST GRASPING FOR STRAWS. MARK VINCENT KAPLAN IS A JOKE. THEY WANT HER TO PAY KEVINS LEGAL FEES BECAUSE HIM AND HIS QUAK OF A LAWYER KNOW THAT HE WILL SOON BE BROKE!!! I DO THINK SHE NEEDS TO BE SPENDING MORE TIME AT HOME WITH HER KIDS BUT YOU CANT BASE A PERSONS MOTHERING SKILLS OR ABILITY TO BE A MOTHER ON FREAKING CHEETOS AND COKE. THATS WHAT ITS COMING DOWN TO AND I WOULD LOVE TO BE RIGHT IN FRONT OF FEDEX RIGHT NOW TO TELL HIM EXACTLY WHAT I THOUGHT OF HIM

as for the bad teeth the kids are with kevin half of the time and from what ive heard kevin had bad teeth before britney got them fixed it may run in the family. I think it is an act with britney to keep her name in the press she is young and she will learn as she goes on ,the kids don't look like they are suffering. Kevin needs to get a job because some people thought he got a settlement from the house that didn't happen and that why he is asking for briney to pay his legal bills

Why does he need her money so badly? Isn't he going to get half the proceeds from the sale of the house they lived in?

Fed-EX would not be any better!!!    

Do you all realize if Brit loses her kids, they don't go to anyone any better than she is!!! Fed-EX has left the kids home with nannies to go out partying too. He left the kids with nannies while he partied it up in Vegas and yet you all call Brit bad because she parties when her kids are with Kevin.

Kevin is no better. He is worse actually because this isn't about the safety of the boys but about hoping for a larger check each month to ease the pain of losing the 20k spousal support in November.

Let's face it. These boys are basically going to be raised by Nannies anyway. I think they are better off with their mom since she can at least afford them where as Kevin is a deadbeat bum who couldn't afford his first two kids but yet decided to have more he could not afford and will probably have even more kids he can't afford with another new baby mama.

Anon asks: Why does he need her money so badly? Isn't he going to get half the proceeds from the sale of the house they lived in?


They only lived in the house two years. Proceeds means after purchase costs and closing costs. They bought it for around 7 million, put 2 million into upgrades and it sold for like 12 million so KFed probably only got around a million dollars (after taxes) from the sale which he probably put as a down on his new 3 million dollar pad. Now he needs to pay a mortgage every month and his 20k ends in Nov.

He only gets 15k a month child support, some of which is designated to go towards a Nanny, since Fedex can't be trusted to care for the kids all by himself.

He spent all his money from modeling & the TV series Chaotic on his failed rap album which he paid to produce himself since no record company wanted to touch him with a 10 foot pole. His tour was a bust and lost him even more money.

He better hope this One Tree Hill gig turns into a more regular thing or he is going to be all tapped out soon.
