The Custody War Continues

September 17 2007, 2:19 am

Only with FOX News (and probably CNN) will you read a bold headline saying “Britney Spears could lose custody of her two little kids as early as Monday morning.” That sentence is basically saying there is no doubt about her losing her babies, it’s just a matter of when, and according to them it may be this morning. Did you roll your eyes, too?

Gloria Allred, a high powered attorney in Los Angeles (known for defending in high profiled cases a.k.a. attention whore), is defending Kevin Federline in the on-going custody battle against Britney Spears. Looks like Allred will fit right in with attention hungry lawyer Mark Vincent Kaplan, Kevin’s other lawyer.

Tomorrow, Allred is revealing her secret witness that will be used in the custody case, and from the sound of it, may not be the best news for Britney: “The likely observations from the witness concern drug usage by Spears in her home and in front of her kids.” I am interested in knowing what Fox News reporter assumes the “likely observations” are drug related. Fortunately the declaration may not be used: “The judge in the closed hearing case, Commissioner Scott Gordon, has the declaration, and does not have to rule on it. He can simply read it and enter it into the case’s existing papers. The only way the witness would testify is under cross examination. In other words, the declaration has already served as testimony. It would only be if Spears’ side decided to question that the witness would be asked to speak.” Conflicting this statement, Allred told Fox News on Saturday that Commissioner Gordon accepted the declaration and “praised her work.”

So who is this secret witness? “She’s kept the witness’ identity a “secret” so as not to start a publicity war,” says Fox. Bullshit, you love this hype, Gloria. Allred explains that followers of this very public case may know who the witness is: “You may recognize him as we walk into court, but maybe not. He is not famous. He’s just someone who’s concerned about the kids.” Fox News then assures their readers that it is not a “drug dealer, and that his credentials will hold up if examined in court.” Cough bullshit cough. The secret witness is expected to show up in court at 8:30am this morning (September 17).

Something is very fishy about this case. Only time will tell. In the mean time, on behalf of all your fans, Britney: We would like to wish you the best of luck in your case today! We love and support you.
