Britney Ordered to Court -- Or Else

10/3/2007 9:24 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned L.A. County Commissioner Scott Gordon has ordered Britney and K-Fed to court at the next hearing, set for October 26.
Britney
We've learned on Monday, Commissioner Gordon said he would not order the parties to court, but made it clear that it would be a good idea for them to show. Sources say Britney's lawyer, Sorrell Trope, asked Britney to show but she wouldn't. Kevin showed up, along with his lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan. It was the first appearance in court by either one. Britney spent some of her afternoon at a Shell gas station in the San Fernando Valley.

Britney's lawyer argued that the ruling on Monday was unfair and he asked to reinstate the 50/50 custody arrangement. The judge declined to do it.

The next hearings are set for October 26 and November 26. Britney and K-Fed must be there for the October 26 hearing.

Ok- Brit has shown how she really feels by not showing up. Remember, she doesn't do anything she thinks she doesn't HAVE to.She didn't HAVE to show up, so she didn't. No, it doesn't make sense, but this is Britney we are dealing with. She is not normal, so don't expect normal behavior. Her life has not been normal either. Her mother didn't give her a normal childhood. Good going, MOM. I hope the money you made off her makes you happy. Britney hasn't had to learn responsibility, values, or morels like the rest of us. That is why she has no life skills. Somebody always did things for her. Again, thanks to her parents for raising an enterainer instead of a responsible member of society. Now she's just a hot mess, telling her parents to get lost, thinking she can make decisions (which she can'). I think K-fed was right on her redneck level. They are both losers except Kevin isn't mentally wacked out. Britney is. He will be under the microscope with those boys, you can be sure. He will have to account for everything he spends and how the boys are treated if Britney's attorneys are on the ball. She used those boys for her love of the Paps. Kevin used her. What goes around, comes around. Thank God the court sees how screwed up she is and is getting those boys away from her. Just because she is their mother doesn't mean she is capable of raising them. She should be sterilized.

I don't think he is going to be any better frankly, he is a partier and clubber too, and I think he needs to be in parenting classes (isn't that stupid that two "stars" have to go to parenting classes in their mid-20's???) and have random drug tests too, because he is a sleaze ball, the kids are still losing IMO. I see he already had a nanny take the kids around the neighborhood as he was apparently too busy doing what, drinking? sleeping? screwing someone? to be a dad on his own. I guess as long as Brittany can pay for his nannies, he will be a decent dad--the court should say NO NANNIES!!

As for Brittany, someone needs to take her cars away from her, needs to chain her to her house because she does NOT need to be out 24/7--she needs not only drink/drug counciling, but mental health counciling too. What a sick girl she is!

Hopefully she gets help i lost respect for her when she started dating Kevin and for what he did to his own unborn child i can't stand neither one but for the kids i wish the best they are adorable. The media needs to lay off because she is getting boring!!

What's REALLY ironically funny is that whatever derogatory things the Federline haters say about him, don't they realize that they're saying that Spears is evidently so much fecal matter? Since Spears is a PROVEN unfit mother, and their allegations against Federline are nothing more than opinion or accusation, it can ONLY mean that Spears is many times worse than their comments about him. Their lack of rational common-sense astounds me.

#68....I totally agree that she should have stayed with Justin. See people, don't ever cheat on anyone, because it can REALLY screw-up your life. Justin then was a jewell.....but now he even seems a bit screwed-up, cancelling a concert because of a hang-over and he has even admitted to being a drug-user. Perhaps, if they could have stayed together, they could have remained clean.

I don't know anything about either parent except what I read her.

I will bet for $20,000. per month K-fed can be a wonderful dad.

He can still get out a party from time to time. But I would think that if his choice is getting a real job and working, or appearing to be a good dad, I think he can hold up his appearence.

I'll bet Laura Wasser is breathing the heaviest sigh of relief on record about now, having withdrawn from the Cirque d' Spears. Can none of you people who are defending her READ??? Her own lawyer said he tried to get her to come, and she WOULDN'T!!! Not "was advised to stay away because of a potential media franzy", or any other such tripe, but WOULD NOT COME. No, she was't under a specific court order, but anyone who knows they're about to lose custody of their children and wants to keep them would BE THERE, order or no order. Jesus Christ on a bicycle, how much plainer does Britney have to make it? Does she actually have to look into a camera and say, "Y'all, I reckon I'm havin' too much fun jes bein' mahself to be a mama right now, so I'mo let my babies' daddy have 'em fer a while" before you finally get it? She DOESN'T CARE ENOUGH ABOUT HER KIDS TO SHOW UP TO FIGHT FOR THEM. What is it about the word "self-centered" you don't understand???

Let's face it..... Britney is not able to function on a high enough level to care for herself, let alone... . care for her children the way a RESPONSIBLE adult would.

She's so stupid, careless, self-centered, and down right ignorant.. that she doesn't have enough sense to go to court after losing her children?????

It's hard to believe she cares at all about her children. It's always all about Britney ..

britney doesnt care that much about her kids if she doesnt go to court for them. Any mother would change her ways for the kids. I mean yeah i blame the media for giving her attention when they should have left her alone. But she should have gone away out of the lime light and take a break to get better. Kevin is a good dad.. Hes not a good husband or boyfriend but he plays the daddy part well so far. Has anyone seen him almost drop his kid? i havent. Did he take his kid out with PARIS HILTON? i didnt. Do we see him take the kids to junk food places? i havent. The only thing im and everyone else is gonna see him do is get a crap load of money from her. He isnt the best person, so dont think im saying that. He does need to get a job, does he have one??? last i heard no but then again no one is surrounding him like britney. But hopefully he proves to be a great dad because it is sad that hes living off brit brits money...

and to all the mothers reading this....If you got an order to change your ways for the better of the kids wouldnt you have? or would you go against it? and wouldnt you have gone to court? and if you had 2 days left to spend time with the kids because they had to go back to daddy, wouldnt you have took that time to really spend with them??i think that was the saddest thing she did...gave the kids up 2days before she had to. what does that really show about her??

anyways, i do hope britney takes the time now to get better instead of going out shopping...and i hope kevin continues to be a good dad and work hard for his own money.
