Why Brit Locked Herself in the Bathroom

1/8/2008 5:37 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned what triggered the drama last Thursday night that ended with Britney being strapped to a stretcher and carted off in an ambulance.Britney Spears

Unimpeachable sources tell TMZ Brit pitched a fit that she had to attend a deposition in the custody case earlier in the day and she wanted "make-up" time with the kids that evening. Britney had visitation rights with the kids that day. She was supposed to surrender them to K-Daddy at 7:00 PM, but wanted two extra hours. K-Fed and his lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, wouldn't allow it, so she locked herself in the house -- thus the stand-off.

Here are the probs with Brit's theory. First, the reason her depo was set for last Thursday was because she failed to show the day before. Second, Thursday's depo was supposed to begin at 9:45 AM and go until 11:45 AM. She didn't show until 11:32, so the depo lasted less than 15 minutes. We've learned she only had visitation rights that day between noon and 7 PM. The depo ended at 11:45 and her house was only 15 minutes away. So she really didn't lose any time with the kids.

Bottom line -- Brit was legally off base.

Visitation isn't necessarily for the parents, it's "what's best for the child". If Brit had missed any time with her kids, it should be discussed and worked out during normal hours for the kids -- not at or past their bedtimes.

Wait, Britney wanted to keep the kids until 9pm? Aren't a 1 and 2 year old suppose to be in bed well before 9? Kids are suppose to be on a schedule and everything. What kind of a mother is Britney? Those kids need to be as far away from her as possible.

I heard attorney Greta van Susternan interviewing Harvey (of TMZ) on TV. She seemed amazed that K-Fed'd attorney didn't allow the deposition to go on longer. She said "when someone's late, you just go on through lunch." Her attitude seemed to be--why didn't K-Fed's attorney do what an attorney normally would do?? What gives?

It wasn't a courtroom situation. It was just an attorney's office. Britney pays this attorney, he could've had the courtesy to continue with the deposition. He ain't god, and he's not a judge. She's paying for his time. He's just a two bit attorney--who seems to like getting a lot of publicity and TV time. THINK ABOUT IT.....
