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!

I would lie in front of a bus for my kids and your poor, pathetic soul can't even manage to go to court...and on time...for yours. Being a mother is a privilege you don't deserve. You seem to think that being Britney Spears means you are owed something...YOU'RE NOT! Being Britney Spears means nothing more than being Paris Hilton right now. You aren't contributing anything at this point and the only thing you're accomplishing is wreaking havoc on LA. You desperately need to get help. You owe that to your sons.

Nic 4:04, this nice add with the odds! This style of prediction seems to be catching on. I think scoops ( who I stole from) created a monster! We'll soon get to stick all of our noses into this soon enough. Schadenfreude!?!

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.

I had read that in one of these rag articles, maybe up to 6 hours a week. I think that may be wishful thinking on the part of Brit's lawyers though. Social Services would be a REALLY good idea.

She'll show, twelve hours after the scheduled time, drunk, high, and delusional. She'll be in her wedding dress which itself will be covered in poo, screaming about deep fried chicken and the how the water fountain out front needs to do as she says!! Ding dang it!!!!

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.

Brit needs drama to keep herself alive in the media. If she did not do these stupid, foolish things in her life, no one would think twice on seeing what is going on with her.
