UPDATE! She showed up very late and stayed 14 minutes.
Britney, Britney, Britney. Put down the dang Cheetos and listen:
You have to do what the Judge tells you to do. Like go to the depositions.
What a Nutjob....Wait! That's it! She'll be the first to plead insanity as a defense in a child custody/family law matter.
Britney Keeps It Brief at Deposition
LOS ANGELES (Jan. 3) - Britney Spears finally appeared Thursday for a deposition in her child-custody battle with Kevin Federline, her ex-husband's lawyer said. Spears was deposed for just 14 minutes, attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan told reporters after the 26-year-old singer left.
After missing two court-ordered depositions, causing her lawyer to quit, Britney Spears was deposed for 14 minutes by Kevin Federline's attorney in the ex-couple's custody battle.
Paparazzi sprinted after Spears, who was wearing a hot pink dress and sunglasses, as she drove away from the Century City office tower in a white Mercedes-Benz. Security guards dashed across the driveway to keep photographers on the sidewalk. Spears called in sick for a Dec. 12 court-ordered deposition, but was photographed that day driving with a friend. She also didn't show up for a session Wednesday, Kaplan said.
Spears' attorneys from the firm Trope and Trope filed a court motion Wednesday asking to be relieved due to a "breakdown" in communication with their client. Kaplan said Spears' attorneys were present for what became a very abbreviated session. "The deposition proceeding did go forward today. It was scheduled for 9:45 to 11:45," Kaplan said. "However, it wasn't able to commence until 11:32."
"You can imagine in 14 minutes there's not a lot of time to develop questions," he said. Kaplan said another deposition will be scheduled. Spears' representatives didn't speak to reporters outside the office building. Spears and Federline, 29, have been wrangling over custody of their sons, 2-year-old Sean Preston and 1-year-old Jayden James. Federline has temporary custody of the children because Spears, who has limited visitation rights, has defied court orders. The two were married in October 2004 and divorced in July.
Britney's 3rd set of lawyers quit, she doesn't go to depositions again,
Britney Spears is clearly doing whatever she can to make her life as difficult as possible. While it often seems she’s doing it for attention, she’s also doing it because she’s an idiot. Yeah I know you were looking for something a little more profound on that last one. A psychologist would probably say that she’s subconsciously sabotaging herself for some reason. Probably true. But that girl doesn’t have two IQ points to rub together. She’s not just emotionally immature, she’s flat-out dumb. Britney’s lawyers can’t handle her immature, self-centered behavior, and are about to quit. If they do, it’ll be the third round of lawyer’s Brit’s gone through since her divorce started.
The high-powered firm of Trope and Trope filed legal papers today asking to withdraw as Brit’s hired guns in her custody dispute with K-Daddy.
In the legal papers, attorney Tara Scott from Trope and Trope wrote, “There has been a breakdown in communications between [Britney] and Trope and Trope making further representation of her interests impossible.” Ding dang wha?!
No word on whether Brit has a new lawyer. You may recall, disso-queen Laura Wasser quit Brit last year as well. Representing a popwreck can be a bitch!
UPDATE: Sources tell TMZ the reason Trope and Trope withdrew is because Britney just didn’t listen to her lawyers’ advice, and her behavior was generally sinking her case.
Celebitchy also pointed out that Brit also may be facing jail time as a result of her immature, lazy behavior. She’s failed to show up to multiple depositions recently, and it’s been noted that she could be held in contempt of court if she missed another one. OK reports that Brit blew of (what I’m guessing will be) her final deposition this morning.
As first reported by OK!, following her decision on Wednesday to blow off her second court-ordered — and seventh in total — deposition in her custody battle with ex-husband Kevin Federline, Britney Spears was given one final chance to make good on her legal responsibilities. All she had to do was show up today at 9:45am PT to give her deposition.And yet, as off 10:20am PT, she had not arrived at the office of K-Fed’s lawyer Mark Vincent Kaplan.

Where exactly is Brit? According to OK, she did leave her house sometime around 10:25. Keep in mind that means she left at least an hour after she should have, to safely be at the lawyer’s office by 9:45. But did she end up going there? Nope. A few minutes after she left, she turned around and headed back home. OK reported that Brit only has until 10:30 before Kaplan goes straight to the judge and asks him to give K-Fed permanent custody. This makes eight depositions Britney Spears has blown off. After such a ridiculous history, I’m guessing the judge will give serious consideration to Kaplan’s request.
Britney seems hell-bent on proving to everyone that no one can tell her what to do. The problem is that pretty much everyone else in the world realizes that no matter who you are, there are a few people who can boss you around no matter what – and judges are one of them. Britney’s much more concerned with her own “freedom” and out of control ego than she is with her kids. Someone like that won’t ever mature to the point that she’d be a good mom. Hopefully she’ll lose her kids for the long haul, and then she can have all the freedom she wants.
