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!

No matter what happens tomorrow, I believe she will get some limited visitation. It won’t be for her benefit … but her boys benefit … so that they will know who she is, and if and when she can pull herself together … it won’t be like trying to have a relationship with a complete stranger.

They are supposed to have the trial in April. With the way Britney's been acting lately out in public, I'm not so sure it would be good for her kids to see her until she is stabilized on meds and stops speaking with a British accent. It might seriously scare the boys to see her like that.

If she wants her kids - she will show... if she doesn't want them she wont show.

Party 'till you die!    

So ( ripping off scoop's idea)
Brit will lose her kids and won't care ( duh!)
She only trusts Adnan, who is obviously using her to make a pile.
They will temporarily leave the country, per Adnan.
She will marry Adnan.
Brit won't get the meds she needs, but Ad will control her for a bit.
She will find that life isn't as good overseas.
She will have a baby that Adnan uses only for $.
She will flip out badly once, but Ad will still maintain his grip on
She will really meltdown and Adnan will bail.
She will probably be hospitalized in serious condition, but won't
Adnan will never return to the US
He will write a big Tell All and make more $
He will sell the raciest picks to the biggest bidder=$$$$$
Pics will show EVERYTHING we suspected.
Adnan will be HATED HERE, but famous elsewhere.
If she survives, people will rally, but soon find that she has lost
it mentally.
She will still have $, but much of it is lost.
Her kids will grow up dysfunctional with Corn Fed and act out.
Her kids figure out what happened, but will never be close to her.
Her new kids with Adnan will also be removed.
She will become a recluse after a failed comeback.
Her meds will never be perfect, so she will live in agony If.....
She doesn't pull the wild Card and kill herself.

Oh, I forgot.
She will convert to Islam and will be despised for it by both sides.
She will not be able to handle the strictness of Islam and fight
She will be a target for Muslim extremist, that make Solman Rushdie
look small.
She will convert back to Christianity using a big Dr. Phil style
religious figure.
She and many others will continue to question her faith and she'll
never live down the Muslim thing.

I don't necessarily want this to happen, but I bet at least 80% of it
comes true.

Someone needs to give this girl a reality check. First of all she claims that she would do anything for her kids but she has yet to prove it. If she really ment that don't you think she would do whatever the courts wanted her to do in order to maintain her visitation and work to get her custody back. Second of all its pretty sad that all you hear about is all the crazy crap about Britney but we don't give attention to the men and women that are fighting for our freedom. Maybe if the media stopped giving her the attention she wants ,then just maybe she would get her act together and act like a mother instead of a freak side show. If she doesn't show up for court I think the judge should mandate her into a mental institution. People want to bash Dr. Phil for going to the hospital but seems to me he is the only one to really reach out and offer her the help she needs. She obvisouly did not learn her lesson when K-Fed used her because she is doing the same thing. She is putting this loser before her children. Britney is a spoiled brat and someone needs to knock her off her high horse already.

It will probably be at a social services office for 1-2 hours. If she’s out of control, she wouldn’t be allowed to see them.

Democrats are evil    

This egotistical "I'm Friggin Hot", piece of human trash, deserves every miserable thing that life has coming to her. I still think I'm going to collect on my bet that she will never reach her 40th birthday. She's just a clone of all the others who have gone before her. Love to see people like this implode.

Ayla of no people    

Did Britney place this ad??

Please realize I did not write this! I found this on a forum and thought it was funny. Enjoy!

Please help! After two long years of being on a waiting list for a
dog, we have been notified by breed rescue that, at long last, our number
has come up and ... WE ARE HAVING A PUPPY!
We must get rid of our children IMMEDIATELY because we just know how
time consuming our new little puppy is going to be and it just wouldn't
be fair to the children. Since our little puppy will be arriving on Monday we MUST place the children up for adoption this weekend!
They are described as:

One male -- his name is Tommy, Caucasian (English/Irish mix), light
blonde hair, blue eyes. Four years old. Excellent disposition. He doesn't
bite. Temperament tested. Has had chicken Pox and is current on all shots.

One female -- her name is Lexie, Caucasian (English/Irish mix),
strawberry blonde hair, green eyes quite freckled. Two years old. Can be surly
at times. Non-biter, thumb sucker. Has been temperament tested but needs a
little attitude adjusting occasionally. She is current on all shots, would do best in a one child household.

We really do LOVE our children so much and want to do what's right
for them.
But we simply can no longer keep them.
Also, we are afraid that they may hurt our new puppy.
I hope you understand that ours is a UNIQUE situation and we have a
real emergency here!
They MUST be placed into your rescue by Sunday night
at the latest or we will be forced to drop them off at the orphanage or along some dark, country road. Our priority now has to be our new puppy.
We may need to place the childrens sire as well if he does not bond well with the puppy. He is older but well trained and can be quite affectionate.
