Brit Was a No Show at Her Depo

1/2/2008 9:23 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Britney Spears' deposition was scheduled today and she didn't show -- again!

If we're counting correctly, this is the fifth time her scheduled deposition in the custody case didn't happen. Last month, Britney claimed she was too ill to sit for her depo, yet TMZ caught her out partying that same night.

Sources say the fact that she didn't show for the depo was a factor in her lawyers' decision to file papers today asking to withdraw as counsel, but it was only one of many reasons. As one connected source put it, "Her whole life has become insane and it's impossible for anyone to get through to her."

Britt, invincible is just a state of mind that lasts a very short time.........with all your talent, with all your money, you have proven time and time again, that neither buys trustworthiness or class.............I'm beginnining to think that Roseanne Barr and Courtney Love, as classless as they may be, have a whole lot more class. Even your die-hard fans are now giviving up on you, and siding with your ex on child custody. Tho never a fan, Kevin really is showing the parental resonsibilty!!!!

She's going to lose everything! People should just stop paying any attention to her and TMZ should lead the way. Addicts have to hit the bottom before they can pick themselves up. You can't help them.

If this was anyone one else her visitation rights would have long ago been stripped away. The judge shouldn't give a damn if this is Britney Spears. If she wants to trash her own life fine but she shouldn't have the right to trash the kids life right along wih hers. As long as the court puts up with her behaviour she will pull the same crap.

Britney is no different from the mothers we read about on the news all the time who leave their kids alone, who put them in microwaves, or beat and torture them. No, she's not brutal with them like these mothers---the similarity is that there is no maternal instinct whatsoever. She really doesn't want them but she knows she'd be vilified if she comes out and says so. So she's doing the next best thing by doing this stupid crap so that the court will take them away from her and she thinks she'll get all the "Poor thing" crap from her 12 remaining die-hard fans. She won't just hand over custody to Kevin but will get the court in a position where they have no choice.
I don't remember much from my college days but one thing always stayed with me. A professor once said that a child will always bond with its mother, no matter what. But a mother won't always bond with a child no matter what---unless there is maternal instinct, which not all mothers have. Britney doesn't have it. She has shown that to the world for a long time now. The sooner the court can take all custody away, the better it will be for those two boys. Let's hope it ends soon.

Q---It is frightening to me that a hatefilled, twisted brain like yours, who speaks about any and all subjects with a political slant is allowed to vote!!!!!!!!!! I've seen these same remarks on here before and I do hope you're writing from a mental hospital. You have some serious obsessions pal!!!! You really need to get over it---or is it that you just think you're so cool with all your "neo" words, that people will think you're smart. Sorry, you just make a jackass out of yourself TRYING to sound superior. It ain't working. Go back to the drawing board and come up with something new.

It's evident that someone, somewhere needs to step in, and the sooner the better. The judge will perhaps start to do it, and forcibly if needs be. She is also wasting other people's time and money. She is redefining 'rock bottom'. She needs extensive counseling, and probably in an inpatient setting. How much self destruction has to occur before interceding or before she gets carried away in an ambulance, white jacket, or worse? This is unbelievable, and I'm saddened that her breaking down has become a form of website entertainment.

I do not blame the lawyers at all they have to be in those court rooms everyday and see those judges also. The lawyer's have to maintain the respect of the judges and representing this whacko is not the way. granted they can charge her money through the nose but if it ruins the name of the law firm they are screwed.

i think this entire saga of the whacko is major entertainment. I also thank TMZ for being there so we can follow, w/o TMZ I do not think anyone would ever believe the things that have happened.

The whacko needs to just give up there is no way to ever correct the things that have happened and regain any type of credibility in the eyes of the public or the courts. I feel for the children but parents split up everyday and kids have to deal with it, (normal people) these kids need to be shielded from the actions of their donor womb for a very long time. Yes I refuse to use the word mother when speaking of this whack job

Reading between the lines here, could it be that she is under the influence of drugs and is too paranoid to come to court?

What is wrong with that girl? Is she not gonna be happy until her little boys are taken away for good? She is certainly on the right track for that to happen!

Even some of the worst drug addicts in the world make some sort of attempt to regain their children. This is much more. She just doesn't care about her children. Although hard to believe, there are some women in the world that possess no maternal instincts. At this point, I think letting the boys go with her at all is dangerous. She could stop all this nonsense and sign over her parental rights, but she is so sick, she is willing to put these poor children through this. All of the people allowing her to do this need to step up, and stop her from further hurting them. Lord knows they are going to face years of suffering from having a mother who rejected them. I hate to say it, but at this point, the boys would be better off with her dead.
