Why Britney Lost Custody

10/1/2007 9:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ knows exactly why Britney lost custody -- she ignored the Commissioner at every turn.

Rewind to last month. L.A. County Commissioner Scott Gordon ordered Spears to do a number of things in order to maintain 50/50 custody.

Spears was ordered to meet with a drug counselor -- she didn't do it.

Spears was ordered to submit to drug testing -- she didn't do it.

Spears was ordered to enroll in parenting classes -- didn't do it.

Spears was also required to sign the judge's order -- again, she didn't.

And last Friday, Commissioner Gordon prohibited both Spears and K-Fed from driving the children unless they had a valid California driver's license. Gordon was pissed today when TMZ posted video of Spears cavalierly driving her kids around Malibu.

In short, Spears did everything wrong ... by doing nothing.

HEY KIM "FAT ASS KARDASHIAN"    

I love all of this. Britney Spears is a nasty, disease infested, rotten crotch, who desn't deserve to have kids. I love the law and I love that those boys will not even miss that misserable excuse of a mother.

I'm so sick of people saying this is happening because KFed wants money. Any idiot should be able to see the girl is farther out there than even Anna Nicole was. It's like she is living in her own little world. You see her she is either with the kids or a dog. She is in trouble thank god Kevin is doing something so those kids can get away from her even though I wouldn't be surprised if her mom isn't coming to help him. Don't worry about B

No she didn't......    

Perezhilton.com-
Its in the Sunt times, ya'll.

We’ve all guessed and assumed but now a reporter from the Chicago Sun Times is exposing Britney Spears‘ love-hate-love relationship with the paparazzi that follow her every day.

Britney Spears has totally rejected the advice from virtually her entire management team, including her mother, Lynne, and is following her own, somewhat unconventional approach to ensuring she will continue to grace the covers of the celebrity magazines and supermarket tabloids she likes to call “the rag mags.”

“Even though her professional career and personal life are train wrecks and she seemingly is paying little attention to her appearance, she is doing everything she can to make sure she’s photographed almost daily,” a former Britney insider — who’s still in touch with Spears’ current staff — told me Saturday in Los Angeles.

Along with this source, this past weekend I also chatted with key staff members of several high-profile hotels, including the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills and the Beverly Wilshire. All told me the same story: Spears or one of her posse members makes daily calls to all the hotels — as well as various popular restaurants, nightclubs and upscale boutiques — to “find out what’s going on … who’s there today,” her ex-aide told me Saturday night.

“Britney is obsessed with keeping herself in the public eye. She has told me several times, “If they don’t see you [in the media], they forget you…. I’m not going to let that happen!’ ”

Part of this is Spears’ love-hate relationship with the paparazzi who trail her every move. While she has frequently complained about the pesky shutterbugs (to Matt Lauer, etc.), she recently has joked with the paparazzi and even has invited a few to hang out with her during various encounters in clubs and restaurants around L.A.

Sources at both the Four Seasons and Beverly Wilshire told me the singer and actress often calls the hotels herself, asking “What press junkets are going on today?” — to determine if stars will be present, to guarantee the paparazzi will be lurking outside.

It’s been rumored that Spears even has special deals with certain photo agencies, where she purportedly gives them exclusive access in exchange for a cut of the profits from the sales of her pics.

And you think those pantyless pictures are an accident? Ha!

show me the $$    

I think motherhood wasn't Brittney's cup of tea, and since she couldn't give them away like you would a couple dogs, she did whatever she could to lose custody. Those kids can't twiddle their thumbs waiting for her to clean up her act. They'd be better off with anybody else but her. I doubt she's crying any tears tonight.

It's sad how all of you people defend Britney Spears as if she knows you personally. Keep blaming Kevin Federline and Shar Jackson. What you people fail to realize is while NSYNC was on their "Dirty Pop" tour and Kevin was dancing for them, Britney set her sites on him then (Thank God for backstage passes, Once a SKANK always a SKANK). Flash forward a few years and Britney is flying Kevin overseas to tour with her....AND NO ONE HAS CALLED EITHER ONE OF THEM ON THIS? Poor Britney?? Kevin and Shar are after her money?? Are you a TARD? It's called Karma and this time Brit Brit caught it in her CELLULITE FILLED FAT FLABBY BUTTCRACK!!!!!!!!!!!

THANK YOU JESUS and thank you TMZ for burning her ass. we all know that everyone reads your stories, whether they admit it or not; i'm sure that helped. I DONT FEEL SORRY FOR HER AT ALL. she was never fit to have kids anyway, how many women wish they could have children and CANT? BEFORE ANY OF YOU START DEFENDING HER THINK ABOUT THAT. i know women who would love nothing more than to have biological children and cant and here she is with two (somewhat) healthy kids and she neglects them and treats them like toys. or props. KARMA sucks skank! you're a slap in the face of humanity and im glad that the judge has some sense. you're not even capable of FREAKING PUTTING UNDERWEAR ON much less raise kids.

and for #35- there is no worse hollywood parent out there than this whore. none. i'm a social worker and i've seen and know more than you most likely. and no, i don't have to be a parent to know what it takes to be a good parent. now that she has no one to take care of (not that she did anyway) she can go ahead and off herself

Honestly , I think that everything going on with Brit shouldnt be public viewed as it has it only makes matters worst for both parents. She loves her kids no doubt about that or she wouldnt even show herself at all, let her find her way into respecting herself her children, an honestly things should get better. Im no brit fan no doubt about that but everyone should just just mind thier thier buisness they are making it so much worst than it really is. On the real I been pulled over with a suspended lic before does that meen I should get my kids taken away too. NO. LOOK AT BOTH PERSPECTIVES ON BOTH SIDES AND BRIT IF YOU READ THIS JUST DO IT IN SAY THE HELL WITH THE PRESS AN EVERYBODY THAT DOUBTED ME. N WHAT.....
