Britney Spears -- Hotel Mommy

10/6/2007 3:44 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Multiple sources tell TMZ that Britney's first scheduled visit with her children since being stripped of custody was a disaster.

We're told Spears was to have a scheduled visit with her kids at 10:00 AM Thursday, surrendering the kids to K-Fed later that day. Sources say on Wednesday night, Britney decided she wouldn't see her children at either of her homes -- instead, she wanted to visit with her kids at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. We're told K-Fed's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, went ballistic.

The way we understand it, a parenting coach was supposed to be present for the visit, and Kaplan felt it was appropriate for the coach to counsel Britney on how to take care of her kids at home -- not at a hotel.

We're told Spears, who checked into the Beverly Wilshire Hotel at 6:00 PM Wednesday and then checked out at 2:00 AM Thursday, went back to her Malibu home and decided not to fight for her desire for a hotel visit with her children.

At 10:00 AM Thursday, the scheduled time for visitation, a K-Fed bodyguard arrived at Brit's Malibu home and rang the buzzer. He waited forty minutes -- but no one came out. With the kids inside the car, we're told the plug was finally pulled and they all went back to K-Fed's.

Some people just crack me up....what's wrong with a hotel. They seem to be giving her more privacy than she has had anywhere else.

While everyone is commenting on Brit's poor choice of actions on Thursday- does anyone know how KFed has managed the boys since he was given custody? Has he fed them, or taken them to the park or gotten down on the carpet to play trucks with them or given them baths, rocked them to sleep? Or did he delegate this to a nanny? Brit's actions always seem to make headlines, while KFed who has a party reputation, seems to be out of the spotlight when it comes to the boys. Has he changed, or is he the lesser of two evils and/or is he better than Brit at concealing his party ways? Just wondering, and praying that those boys stay safe.

The court, Kevin and parenting coach could not have made this visit any more CONVENIENT FOR BRITNEY - yet she screwed it up. No one cares how much she begged or "was devestated." The concern is that the children were the ones devestated or disappointed. Were they crying themselves to sleep that night? Did they have nightmares?

Many parents going through similar custody matters do not have it nearly as easy as Ms. Spears. Some people do not have cars and have to rely on public transportation and have to go great distances to visit their children - especially if they are placed in foster care.

Britney should be thanking the Judge profusely when and if she attends the next hearing, which she is required to do. She is being allowed frequent visitation in her own home and should be greatful for that.

The court and Child Services are not going to cater to Britney ... I hope she is getting that through her head, somehow.

Flavor Flav would have had taken her to a nice lunch and since he wears big ass clocks around his neck Ms. Brit would have had time to wipe the coke off her nose and be there in time to love those little babies. Now those kids are GONE forget them Brit! Be a total whore and inject those tatted up arms with the best heroin $750k per month can buy.

Well, presumably he is doing as well as you or I or my next door neighbor. He IS out of the spotlight when it comes to the boys and you are beyond naive if you believe that it's simply because the paparazzi aren't trying to find him in a compromising position. With this custody fight heating up, believe me - K-Fed is news right now. The paparazzi are looking for him to screw up - it is worth money. Either he has cleaned up his act or he is phenomonally smarter than Britney - either way, he would be a better choice for those boys.

Notice that she won't do another crying game news interview, because they would actually ask her the hard questions. She doesnt want to face up to them yet if ever!

Andre-The whole reason TMZ spends so much time on her is because we keep failing the test. Notice three different stories are clumped together before you get to the comment link. We keep responding only to the britney stuff, and as a result they keep picking up the story. It's called back door market research. Britney is the bread n butter.

There are almost 30,000 votes here to the question; "Should Brit be able to visit the kids?" I think the fact that 52% answered "No" is a horrible testament to a society of people who would deny a woman a right that is bestowed upon her by the natural order of nature, THE RIGHT TO NURTURE AND CULTIVATE A BOND WITH HER CHILDREN.

I do not believe that vote because I refuse to believe that on such a basic issue of human rights our society has become almost evenly divided on whether or not governing powers should be given supreme judgement. Of course Britney should be able to visit the kids! It may be that a judge has found cause to strip her of custody while evaluating her fitness to retain custody, but there is nothing she has done that is so harmful to the children that she should be stripped of visitation.

As for what judgements that are appropriate for people to give governing powers, I think it wise to recall the warning; "Let all the world learn to give mortal men no greater power than they are content they shall use, for use it they will." -- (John Cotton)

Let's remember the history here. She didn't get the license in time to show it to the judge. She failed to test for alcohol and drugs as directed by the Court. She failed to attend individual counseling as ordered by the Judge. She failed to attend co-parenting sessions as directed by the Court. She decided not to show up for the Court hearing and NOW she misses the first visit with her children because "the intercom was broken" and mean old Kevin wouldn't let the driver bring the kids back. Give me a break! This woman has no intention of letting anything interfere with her self-indulgent party, not children, not courts, not public disgust, nothing is going to interfere with Britney's having her own way.
Britney Spears has more than $750,000.00 per month in income. That's more than 3/4 of a million dollars every month. That much money will keep her stoned enough that the kids are already a distant memory. They mean no more to her than the little dogs she totes around or her designer handbags or the McDonalds grease that fills her with such delight.
The only thing that will get through to her is if the public loses interest to the degree that the photographers are no longer following her and the media are no longer writing about her. Then she might make some effort. But once back in the limelight she would revert to type-selfish, spoiled, self-absorbed excuse for a human being. It is too late and it was already too late long ago.
