Britney Spears

Has Lost Her Kids

10/1/2007 4:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Britney Spears has lost physical custody of her kids.
Custody Order
L.A. County Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon issued an order today, stating that Kevin Federline, the boys' father, "is to retain physical custody of the minor children on Wednesday, October 3, 2007 at 12:00 PM until further order of the court."

Mark Vincent KaplanJudge Gordon had ordered Spears to undergo random drug testing and take parenting classes. Sources say Federline's powerhouse lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan (left), raised the issue that Spears was driving without a valid California driver's license, something first reported by TMZ.

X17
is reporting that Spears took the kids to the drive-thru at Carl's Jr. at 12:02 this afternoon and surrendered the kids to K-Fed's bodyguard three minutes later.

A source connected with the case says Spears was not focusing on the judge's order last month, and she may not have attended the parenting classes or performed the required drug and alcohol testing.

The Los Angeles courts rarely take custody away from the mother. Things have to be really bad and proven in order for something like this to happen. Hopefully this will be her wakeup call and she will get help.

Poor children. Hard to decide which parent is the lesser of two evils.

What a tragedy when a woman screws up so badly that her children are taken away... not to mention that the entire world hears about it before her own parents. She needs to start thinking moreabout those babies that she brought into this world and less about going out partying. Maybe she should have waited untill she was a real adult before becoming a parent.

That's really heartbreaking. Hopefully, this will be rock bottom for her and she'll start to live life differently. I'm really rooting for the girl, and I'm not even a fan.

Just a quick request to the people that continually mock her and laugh at her hardships, I know that she's made some really crappy choices, but maybe you could try to act a little human about the situation and treat her situation with the somberness it deserves....

Is anyone really surprised by this? I hate to say it but her kids are better off. She needs to get her life back in order. Maybe it means another stint in rehab or therapy. She definitly seems bi-polar to me and she needs help. Hopefully she'll be able to focus on getting herself better.

Good Luck Brit!

I don't know what was more improbable the Phillies winning the East (Thank You again Mets!) or K-Fed managing to be a responsible parent.

Time to pick Brittney in the Dead Pool! She is a stone cold mortal lock down to end up taking a dirt nap!

oh no    

that's so wrong... they can take her kids when she is at least paying for someone to take care of them... how about these losers that leave their kids at home ALONE... and they still have their kids. She is always out with them.

Apparently she was driving around all weekend without a driver's license. And before that, when the judge ordered random drug and alcohol testing, her response was to go out and party at two clubs. Did she think this was all a big joke? I feel sad for her, but everyone could see this coming a mile away. The judge in this case is probably just trying to protect the kids from her irrational behavior.
