Britney Spears Finally Shows Up to Get Grilled

by at . Comments

After months of waffling and no-shows, Britney Spears actually showed up at the Los Angeles office of Kevin Federline's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, this afternoon for an ongoing deposition in their custody battle.

At 10:40 a.m. PST, Britney Spears, 26, wearing a dark blue top and jeans, drove up to the office in her white Mercedes-Benz SL65 with Sam Lutfi.

Both Britney and Sam Lutfi had "serious expressions" on their faces. Oooh.

The one-time singer has missed numerous appointments for the court-ordered cross examination by Kaplan, FedEx's high-powered attorney.

Spears is expected to be grilled about her drug and alcohol use, her apparent failure to follow court orders and other matters pertaining to her parenting.

Federline's attorney will use evidence gathered in depositions to try to convince a court that his client (K-Fed) should retain primary physical custody of the ex-couple's children, Jayden James and Sean Preston.

That should be a real hard sell. The custody trial is set for April.

"Kevin wants nothing more than to be able to parent his children with participation by their mother," Mark Vincent Kaplan said.

"But the best interest of the children require that they be in the most sound, safe, nurturing and consistent environment. That is paramount."

On January 3, Spears was deposed for only 14 minutes, after arriving late - over an hour and a half late. That night and into the next morning, Spears had a four-hour standoff with police, ending with her hospitalization.

Last Monday, she lost all rights to visit Sean and Jayden indefinitely when she showed up... then left the hearing without entering the courthouse.

UPDATE: Britney and Sam left around 1 p.m., and Spears "looked very upset and walked quickly to her car" before speeding off. Britney's attorneys, Sorrell Trope and Tara Scott, tell TMZ that Brit was "in good spirits." Riiight. Also, we have learned the deposition may take up to two days, so expect Spears back!
