Monday, January 14.
This is shaping up to be one of the most important days of Britney Spears' life. No, not because she's gonna show us her crotch. Although she might!
As you might recall, in the aftermath of Britney's meltdown last week, the judge stripped her of all custody and visitation rights regarding her sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James, until the January 14 hearing.
If she has any hope of getting her kids back, TMZ cites sources close to the case saying that Britney sure as hell better show up - and cooperate.
Should Britney Spears pull one of her trademark no-shows, or cause a scene, or act at all disrespectful in court, it could be curtains for her custody case.
Moreover, police sources say Commissioner Scott Gordon will hear firsthand eyewitness accounts of Thursday's epic meltdown from the LAPD, firefighters and paramedics who were on scene at Britney's mansion.
We don't imagine that will be a pretty picture.
In any case, the L.A County Sheriff's Department isn't taking any chances come Monday - they're ready for anything. If Britney Spears loses it or commotion breaks out in court, they will there to "handle" the situation.
Get ready, celebrity gossip fans. This could be a circus. We just hope Britney and Adnan Ghalib turn up before then and she remembers to go.
UPDATE: A source close to the case reports that Mark Vincent Kaplan, Kevin Federline's attorney, may ask in court that Britney Spears' visitation rights "be cut off completely until a trial in April." Stay tuned.
