Today's closed hearing has begun. All media -- including TMZ -- have been kicked out of the courtroom. The nerve!
Before that happened, our observers noted that as K-Fed walked into the room, his eyes were on Britney the entire time. She, however, never looked at him.
A lawyer for the California Department of Children and Family Services is present as well.
Both Brit and Fed-Ex were sworn in by the court clerk.
One thing -- Britney's nails are bitten down and her red polish is extremely chipped. Girl ... get a mani!
