Lawyers to Brit: Honey, You Gotta Show for This

1/13/2008 5:53 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Britney SpearsSources connected with the custody case tell TMZ Britney Spears has been strongly urged to attend tomorrow's hearing. We're told her lawyers know if she doesn't show, it will be curtains -- at least in the short term.

Sources tell us Brit's lawyers know Commissioner Scott Gordon expects Britney to address a number of issues surrounding the craziness at her home a week ago Thursday. In particular, commissioner Gordon wants Brit to explain why she violated the custody order by not turning the kids over to K-Fed's security guard at 7:00 that evening. The commissioner is also keenly interested in Britney's behavior that caused her to be placed on a 5150 hold at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

Britney's lawyers know if she does not attend tomorrow's hearing, the Commish almost certainly will extend the ban on visitation until the April trial.

The wild card, of course, is Britney herself. She hates appearing in court and it's certainly possible she'll be a no-show on Monday. TMZ will stream live video at the courthouse tomorrow, so watch and see if Brit appears!

she won't show, and if she does she'll run screaming out of the courtroom when everyone starts testifying about her terrible behaviour. either way it should be good.

Woo! Deadly clash of the routine /pop worlds! She's dastardly daring and drawn a line in the sand, then poured her Frappe in it!
Will they weep and tremble from her timely appearance or will she sleep thru the deposition and then absentmindedly take a private plane to Helsinki to get hot coco with gingerbread men cookies?

If she & the people around her had any common sense she would limit her caffeine intake and stop huffing on that OTC inhaler. Both things will cause her heart to beat faster and contribute to her feeling anxious. She really needs to learn a healthier way to live and take control of her life for the sake of her boys.

It will depend on her mood(s) and her chemical intake for the day.

I'm sure you are all familiar with the saying "ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS" this girl is the poster child for that saying. The whole world will be watching tomorrow to see if she really cares about her kids or is she too pre-occupied with her new boy-toy to bother. I know I'll be watching.

What time does this fiasco start?

Why did Cedar let her out so quickly???Why did Cedar allow Dr. Phil to trespass and get into her room at the hospital?
What is KFed doing with the children? He was in Vegas partying New Year's Eve. Is he just sitting on his lazy ass and watching football as his rep said? Who is actually spending quality time with the children??? A paid nanny???? Kaplan and KFed want Britney's MONEY. They don't care about the welfare of the children.

Now is the time for Britney to stop all this drama, and get herself to court tomorrow. This is the only way back to her boys. She needs to do this. I hope she's mentally strong enough to be aware of this and to follow through.

I wonder if Vegas has odds on this tommorrow?

She needs to go and just tell this commissioner whats going on, she needs to be honest with him. Until she seeks help, she is no good to her self or her kids and she has to realize that before its too late and her kids have no mother. On the other hand it is time for this commissioner to demand that KFed drug test too, if he is going to take TMZ's word as eveidence then he needs to also inquire as to the story in the other rag mag about his Marajuana use and if he is under the influence when he is around the kids. It it TIME someone actually cares about the BEST INTEREST for those 2 boys. They have been used and abused by both of them in this and it is not fair to them, Both if these people need to grow up, accept responisbilty for their actions, (KFed.. get a job) and truly do whats best for the boys. If Britney cant handle it right now, so be it, there is nothing wrong with a father (drug free) to raise children. They are just as capable of fulfilling the needs of a child as a mother is as ling as it is not driven by money. So tommorrow, I hope that this commissioner gets his head out of his ass and cracks the whip on both of them and KFeds attorney. I would love to see him assign an attorney to the kids to represent them and protect their rights. Children are not toys, the damage that they are both doing to them is sick and unforgivable.
