Britney's Shortest. Deposition. Ever.

1/3/2008 5:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ was in Century City, Calif. as Brit Brit came -- and went -- from her scheduled deposition today. Why the rush?!


As K-Fed's attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan explained, the depo was originally scheduled to go from 9:45 to 11:45 AM. It poses a little bit of a problem when the person who is to be deposed shows up almost two hours late! Kaplan says the proceedings started around 11:32 AM and he was able to fire off a few questions before having to end at the scheduled time -- thirteen minutes later. So much for asking deep questions!

So why was the popwreck so tardy? He wouldn't say. But he did say another depo has been scheduled. As for seeking sanctions against her, Kaplan says he hasn't yet decided. But he might, if her behavior caused his client -- K-Fed -- any undue "hardships." Hasn't she already?

Just because she has money to pay the legal fees, doesn't give her the green light to continually miss appointments and waste other people's time and the Court's time. She is not the only pebble on the beach. Bella

She is a complete and TOTAL LOSER!! The fact that K-Fed's attorney keeps giving the dumb ass bimbo all these chances pretty much tells me that she clearly could give a damn her kids, court orders or anything that doesn't pertain to her getting laid. She is the NASTIEST SKANK OF A WHORE, who does not deserve to have her kids and as far as visitations go, I wouldn't even give her those.

Britney does not want those two beautiful little boys and in reality does not deserve to have them. Why would anyone who is a single parent bring along your lay of the week to your family holiday. What are her kids going to think when they are going to be shown what their mother really thinks about obtaining any form of custody of her kids. Telling her to grow up would like be telling a dog to go fetch your underwear, he is just going to sit there and look at you with a stupid look on his face, just like her. Why doesn't she just GO AWAY!!! BRITNEY SPEARS SUCKS AS A MOTHER AND A HUMAN BEING. ALL SHE IS A TALENTLESS HACK!!! I'M SICK OF HER AND ESCAPDES OF LATE.

sounds like most women in divorce the gail.
You think brits innocent? deluded
The courts might expect more from mothers but like brits shown, mothers get away with soooo much more than fathers to the point where they can get all visitation removed based solely on what she claims without looking into it or questioning it. Denise richards.
It's virtually impossible for women to lose all custody compared to how easy it is for men. sort of cancels out the whole courts being tougher on mothers. In fact looks like its harder on men.

Isn't everyone just getting tired of her antics? Her own attorneys are quitting because of "communication breakdown." How many attorneys has she been through thus far?? It's really ridiculous and pathetic. The only thing more pathetic than her behavior is her loyal fans who are still making excuses for her.

This may cause gay fed hardship?! Like what, taking time away from sitting in front of the TV?! He should be a man and give it up. He had a couple of good years living off britney. It's time to move on a get a job!

The "hardship" probably has very little to do with Kevin and everything to do with all of the attorneys' fees, court reporter, etc. fees that were wasted when she didn't show up.

Believe me, the attorneys didn't show up and not bill for it.

Britney is the one running up the attorneys' fees and she (rightfully) should be the one to pay them.

Do you realize how horrible you appear when you are so judgmental? Some of her actions may not be the greatest, but when you say these things, you come off sounding worse than her.

Hey OCD

Your a DUNCE. Learn how to read!

'But he might, if her behavior caused his client -- K-Fed -- any undue "hardships." '

Britneys paying the legal bills. The only hardship is gay fed missing his tv shows. gay fed doesn't care about the kids, he cares about the money. Britney pays a nanny to watch her kids when she goes out partying and gay fed pays a nanny with britneys money when he goes out partying.

I'm not going to reply to the "your *sic* a DUNCE" comment, but I will stand by my reasoning that this statement:

As for seeking sanctions against her, Kaplan says he hasn't yet decided. But he might, if her behavior caused his client -- K-Fed -- any undue "hardships."

means that "hardships" include additional legal fees that will be charged to KEVIN since the deposition was requested by Kevin's attorney as well as the attorneys' fees and costs of the hearings in order to force Britney to attend a deposition have been numerous and costly. Sanctions include everything from recouping attorneys' fees, jail, loss of privileges and just about anything else the judge wants to order.

And until the judge awards reimbursement of legal fees to Kevin, then yes, Kevin will be responsible for all of those fees. That is why it is a "hardship". That is a LOT of money.

she really needs to grow up and take responsibility of what she has made of her life. i wonder if anything that she really cares about really matters to her at all; not even her own dignity! that is almost the same as setting your own kids out in the cold and leaving them there! all BRITNEY fans need to stop being fans and help her by not "being" fans because all her fame and fortune are getting way out of control for her!it is like a addictive drug for her! those babies should be the first thing that comes first in her life and "not trying to show up late or not at all" being a priority for her court dates. i cannot believe that are mothers out there that lose their children everyday to some kind of tragic accident and doesn't even give a crap! we all have our moments and dark days, but when it involves children that didn't even deserve any of this ... it is way wrong! i just feel bad for her for what ever is the real problem and for those babies! how much more heartaches are you going to choose and cause for yourself! GET DOWN ON YOUR KNEES BRITNEY AND START PRAYING! those are your roots and you know what the real problem is ! you need to let GO...
