K-Fed Wants Brit Caught on Tape -- Commissioner Rules

10/26/2007 1:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Britney AM hearing is over -- it was all about videotaping Brit's deposition.

K-Fed's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, told the judge he wanted to videotape Spears' depo, because the way Britney speaks is as important as what she says.

Sources tell us that during Britney's last court appearance, her words to the Commissioner sounded sincere but they were dripping with sarcasm.

Spears' lawyer, Thomas Dunlap, argued that there have been tons of leaks and he didn't want the videotape ending up on TMZ.com.

The Commish said he was not concerned about Britney being videotaped because she seems to court all that with the media. He said, "Your client's concern on paper makes sense, but the ongoing pattern with the media and with the kids doesn't square."

As for TMZ getting the story as to what was in the parenting coach's report, Commissioner Gordon said, "I am deeply impressed by the investigative work of the media, although I think it's a little stretch of their talent." Aw, shucks!

Standards are badly needed.    

I'm sure the judge can ascertain 'dripping sarcasm' in her demeanor without having to commit it to tape. Akin to the rest of the missing pegs in her social awareness, her lawyer will simply have to inform her that having an 'attitude' with the judge who decides custody of her children will not benefit her in the long run, even if it feels good now in a juvenile way.
Also, if the commish is availing himself of different viewpoints in various mediums, it will only aid in a 360 degree overview of the nuances of her case and will help in a more informed decision on his part. Disallowing this tape is an example of his long term thinking, serves no real purpose internally, and could ultimately protect her and her children in the media later on when she's matured and looking back with some chagrin. (hopefully...)

I am so sick of hearing “poor Britney” this is not about Britney, this is about her children and their safety. Britney has repeatedly shown bad judgment with her children and now she has to fight for them. And what does Britney do? She blows off orders from a Judge, and acts like a spoiled brat. Those are not the characteristics of a good mother or a mother who really wants her children back.

Does anyone remember a few years back when Britney paraded Kevin’s daughter with Shar Jackson around? She used that little girl for attention. Attention from Kevin, the media and the public. Then when Kevin and her ended she just threw that little girl to the curb. We haven’t seen a picture with her and that little girl since then and it’s rare to see her with her own children. This is not a good mother. What mother would just dismiss a child that you showed so much attention too? And she has done the same with her own kids. It is sad and pathetic and people saying “oh poor Britney it’s unfair” she brought all of this on to herself. She needs to grow up and take responsibility for her actions.

rock I.Q    

Angie,
good post,
I agree , she could have turned this all around . She has had a month and what does she do with it ? Starbucks , tanning , lip injections and shopping for herself. She could have walked into court today with the public thinking, she is June freakin clever, who has made some mistakes. But , no she was not willing to shut down her promotion tour, to even pretend to be a good mother. Can anyone imagine what the hungry media would have done to get pictures of her in the last month, had she laid low? I will tell you what they would do, fly over her back yard and catch her playing with the kids..
.Im not in SHOW biz , but she can not even act like a good mother... She is more focused on her fame and how she looks... She needs therapy and an education.

Victoria, I think he's referring to the difference between the way she and her lawyer present her concerns on paper and then the way she actually presents daily in public. Saying one thing but doing another? Insincerity on her part? Saying in court what she thinks the judge wants to hear, but boldly and arrogantlyl demonstrating otherwise publicly and with the child monitor etc.

He's just another Idiot    

K-Fed has 6 children and can't support any of them. He just likes to screw around and let the mamas pay for them. He gives new meaning to "deadbeat dad". Britney has an ironclad pre-nupt. She has already given him millions of dollars. The contract ends on November lst. K-Fed is about to have a panic attack. He wants custody to get more custody money. It's as simple as that and, of course, for Britney to pay his lawyers.
