Federline to TMZ: Hit Me with Your Best Britney Shot

12/18/2007 12:02 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Britney SpearsTMZ received a subpoena late yesterday in the Britney Spears case.

K-Daddy's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, served papers on TMZ late yesterday, asking for the video we shot of Brit the same day she was a no show for her deposition. That same night, we shot Brit at two gas stations and at the Four Seasons Hotel.

We're told Brit's reason for not showing for the depo was that she was sick with anxiety. Ding dang, her recovery was a miracle!

We believe Kaplan will ask the judge to deny Britney the right to change the custody order until she sits for her depo. We're told he will ask that all of Brit's requests (including a change in custody and the right to drive her kids again) should not be heard in January as scheduled. Kaplan wants everything delayed until April.

I work in the legal field, and even though the wheels of justice turn slowly, eventually Spears' pattern and way of life will catch up to her. People have better things to do than cater to someone who has a compete lack of respect for their time and efforts to help her. The more she "snubs" the legal system, whether it's a Court hearing, a meeting in an attorney's office, and others, the bigger hole she digs for herself. Time is no longer on her side, and she will not be allowed to manipulate people any more. In the not too distant future, the reigns will be pulled in. She is a 26 year old grown woman who lives in the past of her hey day, and thinks she is so important no one else matters. With the exception of a few, the general public has lost respect for her. It is clear from her repeated antics she has limited goals personally and professionally. As wealthy as she is now, unless her spending is curtailed, the funds will dissipate in time just like all other aspects of her life. Money cannot buy back the second that just passed by. She will regret her bad choices regarding her two precious little boys, and if she kills or maims someone with her car, none of her money will make that person whole again, or bring them back to their loved ones. She will have no one to blame but herself. Bella

Hey Spurs, what gives you the right to call those "stupid or idiot", if their opinion is for Brit?. What makes you think your opinion only counts? Everyone here is entitled to their opinions & thoughts. Are you a parent? If so, why don't you spend some time with your kids (if @ home) instead being on this site trashing everyone. Just stating what I see.

I hope they take all her rights as a parent away. She has shown numerous times that her kids come last and her partying and shopping come first. If I were her, I would be sleeping at the steps of the court building just to make sure I was there. Again, if this was any other normal citizen, they would have taken the kids away from her and taken her parental rights away. K-Fed is working to make sure the kids are safe and sound. He seems to be a good daddy.

Britney, grow up.

I agree with #15. It's like a vendetta or something that TMZ has against her. I am not ignorant to what she has done in public or how she seemingly neglects her children, but having cameras flashing while you are trying to drive would be distracting to say the least, and the stalking (there is no other way to put it) of course is going to catch her at her worse moments. Why not leave her alone and maybe she can get her life together? Is this such an alien idea? BTW, any pap that close to a moving car is an moron and deserves to have his/her foot or other body part ran over. If you don't have the sense to get out of the way, well, it's not the driver...

Standards are badly needed.    

It doesn't matter who did what in the past or whether you actually love your kids or not or who has how many nannies.
If you are supposed to show up at court, you show up at court, period. If you don't, you are one step closer to losing.
Add missing those legal steps together chronically and repeatedly, and you cause yourself to look very unfit.
Kevin, money grubber or no, is simply dotting his i's and crossing his t's. That is how you prove fitness; by showing enough caring and ability to problem solve through the legal process ; doggingly being able to take and finishing the necessary steps to try to equitably settle the divorce and child care arrangements. It demonstrates a further ability to problem solve, and therefore demonstrates the mental, emotional, and physical ability to be there for your kids, and proves that you are capable of teaching THEM how to dot their basic future i's and cross their t's. Nanny or no, you need someone with this ability to guide them through life's challenges while they are minors, and even beyond.

Not showing up for any steps of the legal process has heavy consequences for everyone who is in it, not just Spears; driving around aimlessly to gas stations and the Four Seasons the night of a missed deposition, regardless of reason, demonstrates a person who is not doing her 'homework' as it were, and doesn't 'get it ', or 'gets it' but demonstrates a refusal to dit it, enough to not be given charge of minors. She doesn't even seem to care enough or be smart enough to lay low on the night of a missed deposition. If she has anxiety, she should hire a driver and bodygaurds with all her cash, so she doesn't get caught breaking traffic laws. She can send out for cigs and take-out like most would, but particularly on that night.

To cast even one finger of blame at TMZ for being subpeonad for that tape is irrational. That subpeona means TMZ has to turn it over by law. It's not voluntary. If she didn't go out the night of a missed deposition, TMZ reporters wouldn't HAVE that tape. Blaming others demonstrates child-like thinking skills, and an inability to link actions with consequences. Someone who lacks that ability can't be put in charge of minors until they prove that they have developed that skill.

#3 K-loser isn't paying anyone, it's more like how much is Britney paying! Enough already with this trash it's over played and worn out much like both of their so called careers. If the judge doesn't see that this is beyond a circus and that neither of them seem to have the childrens best interest in mind then he's also an idiot like both the defendant and petitioner in this case.
TMZ you are just as bad you report on anything in hopes of it paying your bills. You are no better fueling the fire. Britney you have more money than common sense, why not forego starbucks today and instead use some of that money on real help like a visit to a Doctor and not for lipo but for your mental health or lack of it!

#98, Britney did NOT go gallavanting during the day, she was home. She went out late @ night. Shen went to get gas & then went right back to the 4 Seasons, where she has a suite there. TMZ had the video, it clearly shows it was late night, they just made the headling & story look like she was out all day. She was NOT. No, I am not a fan of her but I do believe she is getting a bumn rap for this because she was not out during the day. Sadly how no one is getting on Kevin's case for not giving his depo, he missed his too. Where is the bashing for him? Even his lawyer will ask the judge to prevent Kevin from giving his depo, he believes Brit should be the only one to give it (per his interview on Inside Edition). What is Kevin hiding?

Anybody notice that Britney must not be out and about yesterday, last night or this morning? No new about her whereabouts.

Either something has happened to her, TMZ is slipping on their stalking of her, or Britney has gotten wise and decided to stay home for a bit (last not not likely!!)

KAPLAN IS AN IMBECILE! Do your own homework you attorney slob. How pathetic that he is calling on TMZ for footgae of her. She is footing all your bills so hire someone yourself and not ask the paparazzi for assistance! The judge should not allow footgae taken by paps as evidence- how absurd!!!!!!!!!! Woh is following around Kfed all day cathing everything he does worng? Oh wait no one because no one cares about him =(

That's how it should be!!! If she doesn't want to play by the rules & show up in court, she shouldn't be able to modify visitation & so forth. That would be rewarding her for her crappy behavior. If she can't handle giving a deposition, I doubt if she could handle raising her kids. Simple as that!!!

Anxiety attack my @$$!!!! We all knew that she wouldn't show up to court. This dumb *itch can't do anything but party, go to the gas station & drink coffee. Whatta worthless pile of trainwreckage!!! We need to sweep her off the tracks!!! This *itch is DONE!!! D-O-N-E!!!

Dumb Brit, if you didn't want kids...you should have used protection!!! It's time to grow up & take care of your responsiblities! If you're not able to, relinquish your parental rights! Do right by those 2 boys or they'll grow up dispising you. Keep this up & we'll see Sean & Jaden dragging you on to Dr. Phil or better yet Jerry Springer!!

Blahblah    

Hey Spurs, if you take that corn cob out of your a$$, you might feel a whole lot better and stop venting the anger from your pain on everyone who has a different opinion than you! It is EVERY American's right to voice their opinion, not to be an a$$hole and criticize someone for not believing what you do!
