Britney Spears lost custody of her children today in a hearing held in Los Angeles. According to this AP story, Spears was ordered to surrender custody of the children to her ex-husband Kevin Federline.
Superior Court Judge Scott M. Gordon ruled that Federline will take custody of Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1, beginning Wednesday “until further order of the court.”
Earlier this month, the judge accused Spears of engaging in “habitual, frequent and continuous use of controlled substances and alcohol” and ordered her to undergo random drug and alcohol testing twice a week as part of her ongoing custody dispute with her ex-husband, the AP story says.
She was also ordered to meet weekly with a “parenting coach” who was to observe her with her children and report back to the court.
Damn, this is sad. I know the girl has problems, but it’s heartbreaking to imagine being in her shoes. If the fiasco at MTV’s Video Music Awards show wasn’t enough, I hope this get her moving towards some serious help.
