Why Britney Lost Custody

10/3/2007 11:19 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Britney SpearsWe now know exactly what went down in court Monday when L.A .County Superior Court Commissioner Scott Gordon stripped Britney Spears of physical custody of Sean Preston and Jayden James.

As we first reported, Britney didn't follow a number of conditions the Commish laid down. But sources tell us three factors were the last straws for Gordon.

Britney was supposed to sign a document that would have given the green light for a custody evaluator to conduct psychological evaluations. Commissioner Gordon ordered Spears to get the signed document to Mark Vincent Kaplan, K-Fed's lawyer, by Monday at 10:00 AM or appear in court. She did neither.

- The judge ordered both Kevin and Britney to submit proof they had valid California driver's licenses and insurance. He also ordered that neither party drive with the children if they didn't have the proper license. Over the weekend, TMZ posted video of Spears driving with the kids in Malibu. She did not have a California license at the time. The TMZ posting was discussed in court and the Commish was pissed off.

- The biggest reason for the change was Thursday night, Britney was at a Social Group event at Sutra nightclub in Costa Mesa. TMZ shot video inside the club. Various people say they saw her drinking alcohol after midnight. According to Gordon's order on September 17, neither Britney nor K-Fed were allowed to consume alcohol within 12 hours of the time they obtained physical custody of the kids. We know Britney picked the children up at 12 noon on Friday, which means she would have violated Gordon's order.

In short, Gordon was ticked off that Britney thumbed her nose at the court. Stay tuned.

Tammera:

I am from Spokane, WA originally and I think I know (without saying names) which facility you may be referring to. It has an excellent reputation. The medical field in Spokane in general is excellent. It is one of the largest employers and brings in some of the most advanced and talented individuals and treatment modalities many fields, cancer treatment being one of "the biggies". I know most people are like, HUH?? Spo-where? But take heart in the fact she is in great hands. I will pray for your daughter's speedy recovery! Did you have to travel very far from where you are from? Is anyone helping your family while in town?

We GUARNDAMNTEE you Britney will be dead soon. As much as we detest Lohan, at least she is trying to clean herself up. Britney is what many detractors, like us, called her B*TCHNEY SNEERS. She only cares about herself and made Keith Richards Keith Moon and Elton John's drug use look like child's play in comparison. Britney will either OD or hang herself or shoot herself. She made a deal with Satan and he came to collect. Once her wholesome image went, so didn't her career.

Come on people, this all doesnt make her unfit it shows that the people that she pays god knows what are not doing thier jobs. She prob. had no idea what she needed to do and when it should have been done. I am not saying that what she does is ok, its no different then what every other single mother in America wants or is doing she is just in the Limelight for it all. I really hope that the cameras are there when Kevin the loser is going out to drink and party and leaves those poor boys with someone other than him!!!! Did anyone think that this was part of a plan that he and Shar Jackson had, to scam Britney out of money becasue they are broke a$$ losers that cannot cut it in Hollywood?

It's amazing what can happen when people actually band together for something positive. It makes me happy to see all the warm wishes for Tammera. I liked your post in #65 regarding a will. I've said that too. She needs the best estate planner money can buy. If something happens to her, whether by outside forces or sadly, self-inflicted, I don't want to see K-Fed get one red penny more than he deserves (which is nothing). He already got a larger divorce settlement than he was supposed to get. Have someone who can dole out the money as the kids need it (education, a vacation here and there) just like the rest of the world lives. I hope she gets better so we don't have to entertain these notions (but in actuality, even if she were Mother of the Year, she should have a Will when she is worth this much).

Why are people so hard with Britney?!

First we Love you then we Disss....and Hate on you...til what?! - American lesson 101?

Britney is human and we all make mistakes. We learn sooner then later....
She has always been surrounded by people how have told her what to do. Her family, her management, her label, her empire executives, and only she knows who else....
I can only imagine the pressure Britney is feeling... She might even feel lost and hopeless....
She married a guy she loved.
Then America dissed her for it. And NOW everyone is loving K-Fed.. for being a good dad.
What about when he left his first family.

Every first time mom has issues with her first born... but that because its a learning process.
What she need is to start feeling the love from everyone!
TMZ! why wont you start this Good VIBE off?!
Report on the good... her progress.... The good things shes doing....
Everyone should report and encorage her to do better, but instead.. she is just being attacked!
K-Fed, just wants her money! And He seems to be just pulling her down and down.... with the help of the Press! its like He has flipped the pancake.
Britney is a Sagittarius. And With Jupiter hitting directly this girl need to start feeling the LOVE from the people that made her a star.
She does have a few positives already. She has great lawyers, good accountants, this woman has her wealth protected from from trash like K-fed.
Britney just needsto relax, read, hire the best stylist in Hollywood baby and a good team to clean her image. She has the money....
Lets NOT forget this girl is smart! Look at what she has accomplished (her positives) which are to many to note.
Rumors about drugs? Maybe.. maybe not?! Do we really care to know? NO. I'm sure we all got a number. Johnny down the block or Walgreens. Who cares?! Its advertised on TV- use this for that, ask this for that, etc. etc.....
Her lic? So many people move down the street, to a new city, a new state etc, etc, and do they renew it? Ummm I do not think so. But at long as your a nobody who will ever know?! Unless someone snitches on you....
I think Britney will end all her problems this year.... And all this will be a thing of the past.

I wonder, who will America diss on next? Justin? I'm sure he uses drugs.
No, it has to be a girl.. or someone who made it very high to the top.....ummmm
Jessica Simpson? No, she had taste of it... but we still love her.

Talk about Media Bulling!
But whatever makes the $$$
Shame on you!

WOW, POOR GIRL. SHE JUST WANTS TO BE LOVED BUT CHOSE THE WRONG GUY. HE IS SO UNAPPRECIATED THAT SHE MADE HIM A MILLIONAIRE.
