TMZ Tape Subpoenaed in Brit Custody Case

10/3/2007 2:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ video will become an exhibit in the Britney/K-Fed custody fight.


As we first reported, one of the reasons L.A. County Court Commissioner Scott Gordon stripped Brit of custody was because she was driving her kids this past weekend without a valid California license -- a direct violation of the judge's order.

Turns out, Gordon found out about Britney's Malibu drive after TMZ posted the video this past weekend.

Celebrity lawyer Mark Vincent Kaplan subpoenaed our video yesterday. We complied with the subpoena today by depositing it with the court. There's a hearing today at 1:30 PM, where Brit's lawyers will argue Britney's non-compliance was all a big misunderstanding.

Spears got her California license yesterday, so she is now free to drive to the fast food restaurant of her choice and has the blessing of the state of California.

Britney is doing exactly what I see all the hyper jogger-stroller moms do here in Texas: they get all sunglassed out, hats on and comformtable and then burn their children's retinas out with the sun by not protecting them with glasses or keeping them facing away from the sun. Britney could of kept the top up and protected their little baby eyes from the sun but no, she has to get pictures taken of her everywhere she goes so people "remember her". That should be everyone's concern is how lacking many mothers do not know how to take care of their children, not just Britney. Also, any mother would have had their children taking away if they were acting like Britney, so every quit thinking Britney is being targeted! I see it happen in court all the time and there are always huge custody battles over children where this kind of behaviour is brought into question.

I'm sorry, people, but Brit Brit was smiling away when she handed the kids over to KFed on Monday. I don't think she is as sympathetic as you seem to think. If she wanted to be a better mother, she would have: 1. followed the judge's instructions (like, duh) 2. Conducted herself in a mature and responsible manner But oh no.

I have to admit, the Britney bashing on this website has gone a little overboard. She's the only (white) individual on TMZ that gets a harder time than successful black men. Sure she's made some poor choices, but she's still human. The continuous slams by the media and paparazzi are enough to drive the most sane person bonkers. I hope she survives her obvious state of depression without seriously hurting herself or, even worse, some innocent bystander. Maybe the lost of her children will serve as a turning point. I remember when Madonna went through her publicity scandals in the late 80's and early 90's, but somehow she survived. Say what you want, she's (Madonna) still one talented, good-looking woman, and from all appearances an excellent mother. Best wishes for Britney.

1. Everyone just about other than her family USES her to their advantage
2. Jason Alexander got $ from her then complained on TV to boost himself
3. Kevin F. used her to push himself to FAME & when he found out he gets not as much $ as he wanted he NOW must MAKE HIS KIDS MOM LOOK BAD B/C IT’S THE ONLY WAY HES GONNA GET ANY $
4. OK people what kind of father puts down the mother of his own KIDS on national news?
5. The new family LAWYER (for the bodyguard) is NOW on the MAP since she is ON the news & YOU REALLY THINK SHE CARES ABOUT THE KIDS??? CMON ITS FREE ADVERTISING THAT WOULD COSTS THOUSANDS
6. DOESN’T ANY1 GET IT?????

It has been reported, that she calls the paps, because she is afraid people will forget about her if she is not in the news everyday. Sounds about right.

If Britney wants privacy then stay home and enjoy your little boys. Have your "people" drive you as your tend to the boys in the back seat. It's fun riding with your kids. I've been there and done it!! If you need a Starbucks don't get it yourself. Those drinks are so hot and I'm sure there is a Starbucks close enough to your home that it will still be steamy when they bring it to you! And please wear longer skirts.....photos don't go away! Don't embarrass thos elittle boys later in life by showing your butt. Plus, it's not that flattering on you anymore.
STAY HOME.....PLEEEEEEZE!!!!Or...... are you just a sick attention whore.?

OMG, now TMZ is going to video celebrities then turn them over to the cops. What happened to the privacy of people, next thing you know TMZ is going to start naming their "sources" Harvey, this is not something to be proud of doing. You are a big A-HOLE

I can't believe some of the posts on here. First, if you don't like TMZ and bit*h that they are in the face of every celeb, then don't come on here. This is a gossip site and w/o those pics and videos this site would not exist. Second, whenever there was a pic of Brit partying over and over and over and over,etc. over 1000 comments were made on how she should loose her kids and she is a horrible mom. Now that it happened people are saying just the opposite - hypocrites. Third, Brit did not loose her kids becuase of the license issue - she cleary defined the judge. She did not go to parenting classes, drug testing, etc. Fourth, Brit knows she is the # 1 hit for paparazzis so in knowing this she should not have disobeyed the judge. She also should have stayed in but she loves the attention. I'm glad TMZ got involved becuase Brit should have lost the kids along time ago but DSS dropped the ball on that one. Britney is a spoiled brat who is accustomed to having everything she wants. Make no mistake this women did not want her kids & she got what she wanted. If she was truly upset about loosing her kids, she would have immediately went for a drug test, signed up for parenting classes and would be showing remorse. Instead, she hands the kids over 2 days early, checks into a well known pap infested hotel and has yet to show any remorse.

Its so sad that TMZ had something to do with this entire pathetic case against Britney.They are obviously on K-feds side.Is he going to give them any of the 23% gold mine he gets if he is given custody of the two boys.Lets see do the MATH 750k a month 23% thats a lot of loot at stake. His Lawyer entered the TMZ video.He asked Britney to pay for his lawyers..so its her money paying for his case against her..probably...Thats so pathetic.Britney has issues yes she is a mess right now and maybe she does want to be seen out and about. But she also is in a high profile case and war waged for the almight dollar.Kevin Federline is never seen with the children there are not many photo's of him even holding those boys.She would not have left him if he was Dad of the year.He is only now pretending to be superDad.Its all pathetic.I hope she is seeing him for what he is instead of wanting him back.I hope she gets the help she needs and gets her kids back.Children need a mother.Shame on K-fed for driving her nuts for money. I hope he will get his in the end they all do.

BOY YOU GUYS REALLY HAVE STOOPED TO AN ALL TIME LOW. NEXT THING YOU DO WILL BE TO REVEAL THE NAMES OF YOUR SOURCES. TO BE PROUD AND BRAGGING ABOUT THE VIDEO OF HER DRIVING IS REALLY SCRAPING THE BOTTOM.

HARVEY YOU ARE A BOTTOM FEEDER.

I wouldn't think TMZ could be used as creditable since lies and gossip is all they deal in, Now that we have digital photos and computer programs to change them that wood not be creditable IMO either
