Brit's Lawyer to Judge -- You're Not a Pop Star

11/8/2007 2:33 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Britney Spears' lawyer has just told the Commissioner in the custody case that he just don't understand what it takes to be a pop star.

As TMZ first reported, K-Fed's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, went to court this morning, arguing that Brit's visitation should be modified because she's violating the order requiring her to respond to the drug-testing people within an hour of the time they call.

High-powered lawyer Anne Kiley, who reps Brit, told the judge her client has received calls as early as 8:00 AM. Kiley said pop stars don't get up that early, adding, "You are not a pop star with a number one album, so you don't know." The courtroom erupted in laughter.

Apparently, Kiley got her message across, because the Commish is open to a more flexible timetable that works for Brit.

They're back in court at 10:30 AM PST. Stay tuned.

UPDATE: Both sides came back to court and told the judge they had not yet reached an agreement. They said they needed more time to talk and will present a complete plan to the court by Tuesday at Noon.

Commissioner Gordon reiterated that Britney Spears must provide a single, working telephone number to be called in for drug testing. K-Fed's attorney told the court that of the 14 calls from the company assigned to perform the random tests on the popwreck, she failed to respond eight times. The Commish did not change the current visitation order, so everything remains as he ordered on October 26. One item he did order: Brit must notify her lawyer immediately when she changes her cell phone number. Apparently, she changes her number as often as she changes her clothes, and he's over it! He told her attorney that she must then immediately contact Kevin's lawyer, and then call the drug testing facility. That's some phone tree!

The judge told her lawyer, "Basically, the testing facility needs a number they can call and get a response."

They'll be back in court on November 26.

What she should have said was, "You are not a train wreck talentless whore who is about as unfit as a parent can get"

"You are not a pop star with a number one album, so you don't know." The courtroom erupted in laughter.

Cruel & unusal treatment -only Unfitney would think so- Brit should get her ass outta bed by 8 so her boo boo's could be on a decent schedule.

Maybe pop stars don't, but mothers of young children do. More proof she isn't fit for parenthood.

The fact she's not up at 8am, with 2 small children, speaks volumes! When does she spend time with them? It seems she's out every night.

You have got to be kidding! I guess it's more important to be a 'pop star' then to be a mother.

It's hard to get up and take a drug test at 8am when you've been doing X and coke and IV drugs and having unprotected sex with strangers in all night clubs.

I don't get this - I really don't. If this lazy tramp had a real JOB that precluded her from being available at the set times I would understand the need for flexiblity - but Britney Spears DOESN'T DO ANYTHING!!!

Well, she shops and ignores her kids, but other than that she doesn't DO anything!

I really don't care what time she goes to bed and what time she gets up. She should be available at any time if she wants those children. Being a "pop star" doesn't make her special. Actually, she is rather un-special in her crazy behavior.
