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 am so sick of hearing about Britney Spears,what is it with her parents,they want DrPhil to help her then then say he betrayed her,whats up with that or as doctor phil would say "hows that working for ya" I think personally and I agree with DrPhil,she should get help and that means immediate intervention,lets put the blame where it needs to be. Leave this woman alone,if she was any ordinary jane doe,no one would give a rats ass. She needs help,she knows it,until she gets the help and comes out of her self centered behavior,then her children will be off limits to them.

Now - if only her fellow popwreck Kelli would size 16 'weigh' in on the latest between Big Mac excursions - is it even possible Brit Brit will show herself & is it possible she'd shave down to bald for the occasion?

Britney is above the law and she will let the Judge know it. We are talking $700,000.00 a month in her gross. Britney can buy justice. The kids will be like pets, she calls they come.

Did I hear the hearing is early? Cause later in the day is better for Brit.
Did I just see a picture of her and Adnan with another dog?
I hope they have really good security cause no telling what
she may do.

'newbie' right - you are about as new as Brit Brit's insanity! More like 'freebie' - you so eager to give it away & let the world know of your celeb perversion & neoliberal lifestyle.

Yes, it's all very annoying, but once every so often, could someone remember that Spears in all likelihood is battling a serious mental health condition? If she had a serious physical condition that was not responding to treatment, would you all be so judgmental? Spears doesn't act the way she acts as a strategy nor is it planned. She quite simply does not seem able to control her self-destructive impulsive behaviors. Many people with mental health issues refuse help and believe they are doing well. Can't we have some sympathy here, some hopeful thoughts for Spears?

Those of you who think Dr Phil insinuated himself into this pathetic woman's plight out of compassion need to GET OFF YOUR ASSES, TURN OFF THE TV AND COMPUTERS AND GET A FRICKIN' JOB!!!

FYI: Philip McGraw is an ENTERTAINER with a degree. He and his wife are MEDIA WHORES. Phil stood in the same line that all the rest of them did with Ms Spears. THEY SMELL HER LIKE A MALE DOG SMELLS A BITCH IN HEAT. He couldn't care less what happens to her, as long as he gets attention and money out of it.

Next, you're going to tell me that Oprah is a wonderful person.

More like we need a TMZ post about so called 'newbie' - who is actually probably Brit Brit herself with her latest 'cry for help' as little newbie going nowhere with nobody!

Ok, Jane Doe...but will she come like THIS.....

73. 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!!!!

....While sipping starbucks mocha latte..singing give me more...chewing gum (to get the chicken out of her teeth)...after which she abruptly pulls out her gun and threatens to shoot one of those poor little puppies if they don't give her the kids back. then she'll politely ask Adnan to run to the gas station to get her some smokes in her most eloquent British accent....

I have complete faith in Ab - I have known him a long time - He could always be counted on to the job done that no one could.

Have a great day.
