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.

Thanks TMZ for the scoop. Britney must subconsiously or consciously WANT to lose these kids. They are not safe with her, and I'm relieved they are now away from her.

She is self destructive, that is obvious. I don't think she has a clue what is in store. I personally feel sorry for those kids. Both parents are idiots.

Sharond---your post was wonderful!! I am the same age as Britney, I am a single mom, and I do not go out all the time, I do not go out at all. I know my responsibility is with my kid! The "she is a kid too" excuse is weak!!

Wow. Just like her VMA performance - she didn't even make an effort. A performance is one thing but you'd think she could at least try when it comes to her kids.

We all saw it coming; unfortunately, Britney didn't. But, maybe, she didn't really want the responsiblity that comes with being a parent, so she sabotaged her chances at having custody at every turn. I'm just surprised that it took as long as it did to strip her of custody. If she didn't have money, those kids would have been removed from her a long time ago. sad comment on the class/money divide that exists in this country. this girl needs some serious help; other wise we'll be reading about her a la Anna Nicole Smith.

He is no better. These kids should be given to the grandparents until both of the parents are evaluated. Remember, these are not his only children. I haven't seen any pictures of him with the boys. There are tons of them with Brittany. Something is going on with her, that is pretty clear but, he just does abetter job of staying out of the publics eye.

Really had to believe any woman including a celebrity would screw up so bad, as to loose her children., that said, it is very obvious that the kids are not even a close 10 on her priority list, little Jaden was like what 2 months old when she started going nuts!! In my opinion Kevin is just as much of a loser and like someone else already stated will milk this for all her can, probably write a gangsta book, since he cant sing, or has no other means of supporting himself....... where are the grandparents!!! They may be the only nornal people and the children really should be with them,,, like for a couple of years... then possibly these two can truly see they are not ... first anymore.. and no one cares to see them dry humpin on dance floors, they are adults now, not teenie boppers, guess what kids,,, thats what happens when you make babies!!!!!!!!1111

Obviously, she thaught she was above the law !! She faught the law and the law won ! The kids are not in a better place with Kevin, they should be in foster care !! Forget about the grandparents taking them, both sets of grandparents did a lousy job of bring up Brittany and Kevin....The old saying....The apple doesn't fall far from the tree...

What did you think would happen?

K-Fed didn't get Brit hooked on drugs. She was hooked before the two of them got together.

When a mother is on drugs and partying nightly this is what happens. The kids are better off with K-Fed. This isn't about $ this is about the kids.

OMG We as Americans have gotten so cold hearted...shame on us...Give this poor girl a break..Yes, she has done some bad things....she is still only a kid herself...and I am sure we have all done "some things"we might not like floating all over the internet.....have any of you people thought what your lives would look like to others if you had the paparazzi following you around EVERY single day.....reporting on EVERY single thing you do??? I think the poor thing is suffering from post pardon depression and needs help...and if anyone really cared for her & not her money, they would get her help

Brittney is just one confussed child. If only her and k-fed would had really tryed to work things out instead of being wrapped up in fame... the kids wouldn't be going through this

I'm gagging while saying this BUT ...At lease K-Fed has enough brain cells to listen to Brittnay's mother, and will allow her to help with the kids, even if Brittnay doesn't.

Brit has some kind of serious psychiatric disorder and really needs tough, long term, inpatient care. Maybe she'll take this seriously now, if not, she deserves to lose custody. She has been a basket case since Justin dumped her....maybe before.
