K-Fed's Lawyer Headed to Court

1/4/2008 12:31 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned K-Fed's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, will scurry to court this morning at 8:30 AM and ask the Commissioner to strip Brit of her visitation rights -- at least for now. We're told there may not be much of an argument and it's almost certain the Commish will see Kaplan's point. Attorney Tara Scott from the law firm of Trope and Trope will represent Brit -- awkward, since the firm has asked to withdraw as counsel.

As we reported, Britney is at Cedars-Sinai on a "5150 hold," meaning there's evidence she's a danger to herself or others -- others as in her kids.

Here's what's interesting. We've been reporting for several months now that Britney doesn't have a drug or alcohol problem -- that her instability is mental, not chemical. Well placed sources tell us what happened last night is not rooted in drugs, and that of late, her mental state has deteriorated to the point that what happened at her home was not unexpected.

Stay tuned

Thats even scarier. You can detox from drugs but to get her mind straight might be more of a challenge. God help her.

Not surprising. She exhibits all the classic signs of bipolar & postpartum depression. Ease up guys. Just cuz you haven't been there, doesn't mean you can't at least try and understand.

WHO CARES WHY SHE'S SO LOOPY!!! She's nuts and needs the kids taken away from her before she harms them!!! She's incapable of being a proper parent. K-Fed, regardless of what we think of him, has proven to be the better parent here. Give him those kids and whisk Brit away to some remote town where she can get back to reality.

Well this should seal the deal. K-Fed can now count on getting payed until the kids are 18 years old. Britney didn't want them anyway so I guess everyone wins!!

What a friggin train wreck.
Any judge that lets her continue to have those babies has rocks in their heads. That judge had better protect those little ones.

I'm so disgusted that she would do this in front of her kids. She pretty much used them as props.

As a mother of two children myself, I feel so badly for this girl. I feel terrible that with all the money and fame, a person can literally surround themselves with people who tell them what they want and let them do what they wish, whether it is above the law, or just plain crazy. This girl needs a mother and a father for crying out loud - WHERE ON EARTH ARE THEY? She needs to be taken out of that crazy environment and get back to her roots. Who is helping her? She isn't going to be here for long if no one takes the bull by the horns. And if her people can't do it, then the law must. And the kids, I feel so badly for them. They have no idea what is happening to their mom and they will be affected by this for the rest of their lives.

TMZ has been "reporting"!!! OMG is that a joke?!?!?!
"Reporters" do not follow a person every minute of everyday just to get the money shot for their website. I imagine TMZ staff were salivating yesterday with happiness that they finally got the money shot of Brit being taken away.
The girl needs medical help not help from TMZ "reporting" on her every move.
