Court: Spears Can Meet Children

by | 31 October 2007

A Los Angeles court hearing the child custody battle between Britney Spears and her ex-husband has not restored the singer's child custody rights.

However Spears, who previously lost custody of her children to former spouse Kevin Federline, has been granted visitation rights. All of the singer's time with her two sons will take place in the presence of a court-appointed monitor.

Under the new terms, the troubled pop princess is entitled to two daytime visits and an overnight stay with her children every week.

Los Angeles court commissioner Scott Gordon also ruled that the Baby One More Time would have to childproof her home and continue to meet regularly with parenting coaches. Spears will also have to meet with Federline to decide on a schedule for custody during holidays.

Previous court directives ordering the star to undergo weekly drug tests remain in place.

Documents of testimony given by court-appointed parenting coach Lisa Hacker, who appeared at a previous hearing, also reveal that the star missed three scheduled visits with the counsellor.

Hacker told the court that the environment at the Spears household ranged from "chaotic to almost sombre with little communication at all".

"It seems that her (Spears) choices are dependent more upon what she wants to do at any given time rather than what would be more enjoyable
for the children," she said.

However, the parenting coach added that the star loved her children
and that her two sons had a bond with their mother.

At the moment, Federline maintains full custody of the couple's two children - Sean Preston, two, and one-year-old Jayden James.
