All Fingers in Brit Case Point to TMZ!

4/3/2008 1:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

So we just got our mitts on a bunch of papers in the Britney Spears custody case, and it appears Brit's former lawyers are using TMZ to prove who was leaking info like Brandon Davis at a beer fest.

According to a declaration filed by attorney Hillary Slevin, she seems to be saying what triggered her firm's interest in a gag order was a bunch of stuff we were putting on the website.

ITEM: "On December 12, 2007 ... I was viewing the website known as TMZ.com. At that time I saw that TMZ.com had set up a streaming video in front of a building where counsel for respondent, Mark Vincent Kaplan has his office."

ITEM: "The video continued to play throughout the morning ... At approximately 10:50 AM the text stated that Petitioner (Brit) would not be appearing for her deposition because she was ill."

And it goes on and on, suggesting that K-Daddy's lawyer may have been the leak. Note to Hillary: How do you think we would get information about why Britney wouldn't be attending the depo -- How would he know? Of course, we're not sayin how we got it...

OMG!!!!! That explains sooo much. Britney was the victim of a slander campaign caused by Fed-ex and his crew. I didn't think she had any mental problems, but was rather scared and worried about what was going on. The tables have turned, and after reading this sabatoge against Brit, I hope she gets full custody back. Looks like Kev and his people lied, manipulated, their way through the system. I hope Karma kicks Fed-ex and his crew in the ass. Brit must really love her boys to still and try to stay decent through all of this where kevin was far from decent.

It's the Sam Lufti guy.......I bet he's been selling Britney out to everyone and anyone the whole time. He was always with her....I bet he even talked her out of it and came up with being "ill."

Anyone care to explain why all you posters are getting your panties in a twist over this? I mean, all this says is that Ms. Slevin wants the court to issue a gag order to keep Kaplan from reporting events. It's not like he's revealing any confidences. Come on, now, how is Kaplan reporting that Brit was too sick to show up for a deposition or that she showed up late or that he was trying to find the connection between Sam and x17 -- how does that show that the Commish is biased or K-Fed is manipulating the system? All it shows is that (1) Brit was too sick one day to show up (2) Brit was late and only got in 15 minutes of questioning (3) Kaplan asked Lutfi about his connections to some tabloid site.

In my view, all of you are acting like those girls in "The Crucible" -- you know, the movie where Winona Ryder is the leader of a bunch of hysterical girls who all join in a chorus to convince the court that other villagers are witches who took the form of a bird or cat or whatever. Get a grip.

Anyone notice the date of the Declaration? This was filed back in January by Trope & Trope. It was offered to support their motion for enlargement of the gag order that, you will recall, was denied. Old news.
