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

You people amaze me as someone who has dealth with mental illness in my family you can't even imagine what may be going on in her head. Someone stated that Bi-polar disorder does not make you avoid drug tests well to you I say you obviously don't know anyone who is diagnosed Bi-polar. My brother refused a urine test at the hospital after a wreck when he was in a manic stage not because he had anything to hide but because he thought they were all against him trying to make him in his mind do something that need not be done. It must be a scary thing we one can know longer control there own mind and the thoughts running through it. I can only imagine. Have some sympathy just because she is wealthy doesn't mean she isn't human. Have some sympathy just because she isn't living her life by your all's standards doesn't mean she isn't living her life the best that she can right now. I hope she finds the inner strength she needs to rise above all of this. May she come out of this a success story and a role models for others who may be experiancing the same thing.

This is so very sad. Somebody has GOT to step in and get this girl some help STAT, whether she wants it or not! Britney, you CAN recover and 99.9% of the public WANTS to see you bounce back and go on to greater things! DON'T BE A STATISTIC! You don't know me from adam, but I would be GLAD to help you....just find SOMEONE, ANYONE, that has your best interest at heart...believe in yourself and turn it around!! I'm praying for you.

Mental illness is a real brain disorder. It is not controllable, it is not narcissism, and it is NOT her fault that she is psychotic. It is her responsibility to work with the treatment she gets, and I hope, so much, for her sake and her boys' sake, she can get the medication and help she needs.

Would you throw stones at an old man wandering naked in the street with Alzheimer's????

Wow, what a bunch of cruel comments. This young women needs help, and you people can only think to say awful things about her. Wouldn't it be sad if one of you had the same problem and people laughed at you. It boggles my mind how cruel our society has become. My thoughts and prayers are with Britney and her family, hopefully she will get the help she needs and come out on top again. Oh and depression is a real desease, left untreated it can kill and Britney certainly seems to be suffering from severe depression. God Bless her...

27. DID KFED EVEN GIVE THIS MUCH OF A "CUSTODY" SH*T ABOUT HIS OTHER KIDS HE HAD WITH THAT OTHER HOE? OF COURSE NOT BECAUSE SHE IS A PENILESS NO-TALENT HACK UNLIKE HIS "MEALTICKET" MRS MONEYBAGS SPEARS!!!!!! KFED IS THE NEW LARRY BIRKHEAD, HE WON'T REST UNTIL BRITNEY IS DEAD!!!

#27, I don't like or respect K-Fed, but I've never heard - not even once - that Shar Jackson was an irresponsible mother, got drunk, held her kids hostage, kids supposedly bruised/neglected, ect... Maybe he's not trying to take his kids away from Shar because he never has to go to sleep at night wondering if they'll still be alive and in one piece tomorrow morning.

It's beyond sad. She is so obviously bipolar. She needs professional help without cameras all over the place. The people in her life are enablers and users and someone needs to step up to the plate and take care of her and kick all these hangers on out of her life. And we should all be ashamed of ourselves for contributing to this - myself included. TMZ for reporting it, following her around everywhere, and all of us for tuning in to find some perverse pleasure. Mental illness is not funny. It's serious. Yes, she needs to have her kids taken away from her until she receives the help and takes strides to clean up her life. They have to be protected. But in her defense, she probably doesn't even have a clue as to what she has done.

I think the bloggers need to reframe from judgment. If all of the conclusions are true, Britney will still require some type of therapy. These comments show the sick nature of some the TMZ posters, who need mental help, well beyond Britney needs.
At least, Britney has a history of having a likable personality with a strong work ethic which is more credit than I can give some of you.

Oh yeah, Shar Jackson, He's at least a has been, she was just a wannabe, never was, and yes, I'm sure she does end up with some of BritBrits money. No one held a gun to britney's head and forced her to marry him, just like no one has force her to drink or drug, and yes, a lot of bi-polars or people with mental health problem do self-medicate

She needs to wake up. Someone put a hold on her money, she should stop driving get some help if she is ready. She needs to be a strong person to be a good mom. The boys maybe young but they need sane parents they can look up & learn from.

Its been a tramatic fews years for this broad and only has one ending:
Spends all her money and goes broke, ends up in a porn with Tommy Lee, and finally settles down in a trailer park to live out her life as a 300 lbs crazy lady. Classic American Story!

this young woman obviously suffers from a mental illness, possibly brought on by the change in her hormones from having 2 children so close together. Bi-polar formerly known as manic depressive, she goes from being very upbeat, happy go lucky to a raging crazy person shaving her heard and attacking a car with an umbrella. Hopefully this latest incident will force her to get the psychiatric help she is in need of. There is no shame in being mentally ill, the only shame is not getting help for it.
