* SPEARS GRANTED ONE MORE NIGHT WITH KIDS LATEST: BRITNEY SPEARS has been granted one overnight visit a week with her young sons after a crazy day in court in Los Angeles. The pop star's attorney, Anne Kiley, called an emergency hearing early on Thursday morning (11Oct07) to readdress her client's custody arrangement after she lost physical custody of Sean Preston, two, and Jayden James, one, a week ago. But Spears failed to show when Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Scott Gordon agreed to meet with attorneys representing the singer and her ex-husband Kevin Federline. Gordon sent the lawyers away, urging them to "work it out". Spears then arrived at the courthouse in a white convertible Mercedes-Benz early on Thursday afternoon - to face Commissioner Gordon herself in a closed-court meeting. According to court spokesperson Allan Parachini, her presence prompted the judge to modify his custody decision from last week (ends05Oct07). Parachini claims Spears was respectful when she spoke to the judge, who appeared to empathise with the young mum, stating, "This is a relationship of very young parents and little guy kids." Spears has now been granted a monitored overnight visit once a week with her children. Federline's attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, explained in court that he had initially fought a modification of the custody deal because Spears' legal team wanted last week's ruling completely reversed. He revealed the lawyers agreed on a new arrangement to give Spears more time with her sons in between the two court appearances on Thursday. Kiley then explained Spears' once-estranged mother Lynne could be interested in acting as a monitor for the overnight visits. Dressed in blue jeans, a long dark blue sweater and wearing aviator sunglasses, Spears revealed she had an eye infection and asked if she could keep her glasses on throughout the hearing. Her lawyer told the commissioner that Spears had stayed away from the morning hearing in a bid to avoid the media crush that surrounded the courthouse. The attorney growled, "Nobody should have even known about this hearing today." After the short meeting with the commissioner, Spears left the courthouse visibly distressed, and went shopping in nearby Beverly Hills.

* SPEARS LOSES CUSTODY HEARING BATTLE LATEST: BRITNEY SPEARS has lost her bid to alter the conditions of her child custody arrangement, despite winning an emergency hearing in Los Angeles on Thursday morning (11Oct07). The troubled pop star failed to show up in court to face Commissioner Scott Gordon and ex-husband Kevin Federline's attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan, amid a confusion of media interest and misfiled paperwork. The court revealed early Thursday morning that paperwork had not been filed properly and, as a result, the hearing had not been scheduled, but Gordon agreed to meet with the parties, reportedly telling them to "go and get a cup of coffee and work it out". In her absence, Spears' lawyers had asked Commissioner Scott Gordon for overnights, partly because she's passed all her drug tests. Kaplan fought a new ruling, claiming the custody order is only one week old. Commissioner Gordon refused to reverse the decision he made a week ago when he gave Federline physical custody of his kids, set the custody parameters and demanded Spears undergo a series of random drug and alcohol tests. Meanwhile, Thursday's court hearing wasn't the only thing Spears missed - she also failed to show for a scheduled audition, leaving 50 dancers standing outside the Millennium Dance Studio in North Hollywood. Spears was expected to check out the dancers for upcoming appearances and dates. The auditions will be rescheduled. As WENN went to press Spears had mysteriously just turned up at court - hours after her attorney's impromptu hearing had taken place. The singer drove to court in her white convertible Mercedes Benz and refused to get out of her car until all paparazzi crowding the entrance were cleared. Camera-shy Britney was then directed to an underground parking garage. She again refused to step out of her vehicle when she spotted a persistent photographer waiting to take a snapshot of her. She only agreed to leave her car when the snapper had taken off his camera and placed it on the floor by his feet. (KL/WN&WNWCMZ/GES) Los Angeles, California - 11.10.07
