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.

She isn't a pop star with a #1 album. She isn't even promoting the damn thing! She is a piece of trash skank that pretends to still have a career even though it died years ago. I guess the drug test appointments are messing with her trips to the bathroom, Starbucks, gas statations and shopping for light fixtures.

Hopefully the judge DOES know what it takes to be a parent - that should be #1 to being a pop star. Promos and tours may be necessary - which she isn't doing - partying, shopping, and showing your crotch aren't!

Ewwwwww    

Yet another reason to keep those kids away from her.
They don't care that she is a "POPSTAR" they only want her to be awake when THEY get up. What will she do when they start school ?? Oh, I know have the nanny take them - every childs dream !
Why on earth do people have children only to pay for someone else to raise them ??????? If you don't want to raise them - don't have them !!!!

One hour, that is all she gets?????? That is not very much time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What if there is traffic at 8 a.m. in Los Angeles??????? Oh, Gee that would never happen, Ding, Dang Duh!
What if TMZ paparazzi where blocking her car and she couldn't get into the testing place for an hour????? That could never happen, could it?????

The Judge is definatley on Kaplans payroll or they are doing each other! This is so one sided!

O.K. I have had enough. I have followed all of this crap with Britney and the kids and I just kinda watched and listen but NOW with her lawyer saying that she is a pop star and and pop stars don't wake up that early.......ERRRRRRRRR. ANY GOOD MOTHER IN THE WORLD OF 2 YOUNG CHILDREN DO GET UP THAT EARLY IN THE MORNING. This statement just really got to me and I felt the need to finally vent. That is just crazy for anyone to say. I am a mother of a 5 yr. old and 10 yr. old and even my 10 year old is up and needing me by 9 in the morning. Even when my children may be spending time with grandma I still can't sleep in cuz my body is soooooo used to waking up with them. O.K. i vented..................

How does this piece of trash get away with this!! If it were anyone of us, we would have been arrested. Starting with the indecent exposure of her private parts. She's disgusting.

this is another example of a celebrity getting off easy just because they have fame and money. just because Britney is famous doesn't mean she can't get her lazy butt out of bed to go to court in order to get her kids back. a real mother would get up at any time of the day to get her kids back. this is more proof Britney is an unfit mother.

TO ALL BRITNEY SUPPORTERS: STOP SUPPORTING THIS TRASH,UNFIT MOTHER Y'ALL!

That is absolutely unbelievable...sorry if your drug testing is "convenient" for you Britney. You should be willing to do WHATEVER it takes...bottom line. There are millions REAL moms who work two jobs, take care of their kids and STILL manage to get up early. This judge is a joke as well.

THIS IS AN OUTRAGE. IT'S NOT LIKE THE HOE IS WORKING, SHE IS OUT CLUBBING AND PARTYING. WHY IS SHE BEING ALLOWED TO SLEEP IN & HAVE EXTRA TIME TO RESPOND? HAS THE JUDGE NEVER HEARD OF CHARCOAL? ALL SHE HAS TO DO IS DRINK SOME, WAIT A WHILE AND SHE PEE CLEAR. MAKE THE BITCH GET A HAIR FOLLICLE TEST!!

I guess being a "popstar" means you don't have to be a responsible or good mom...and you can just about do anything you want to because you are a "starrrrr". It is sick! I also hate to tell Britney and her lawyer that the Eagles have the number one album this week not her! Too Bad, So Sad!
