BRITNEY MAY LOSE CUSTODY BATTLE
The lawyer of Britney's ex-husband Kevin Federline is reportedly bringing a "secret" witness to a court hearing in Los Angeles at 8.30am, whose evidence could see two-year-old Sean Preston and one-year-old Jayden James immediately removed from Britney's care.
According to Fox news, Kevin's lawyer Gloria Allred filed a signed declaration from the witness, who is described only "as a man who has had close observation of Spears' behavior with her kids," to the judge hearing the closed court case last week.
The "secret witness" declaration is believed to contain a testimony claiming Britney, 25, has used drugs in her home and in front of her children.
Commissioner Scott Gordon - who is hearing the case - is able to rule or dismiss the testimony in its written form but the witness could be called to give evidence in court today if the 'Toxic' singer's legal team wish to cross-examine him.
Allred said: "You may recognize him as we walk into court. But maybe not. He is not famous. He's just someone who's concerned about the kids."
Britney and her attorney Laura Wasser will have learned the witness' name when the declaration was filed on Friday (Sept 14, 2007).
Meanwhile, it has also been claimed Britney plans to bribe Kevin with a multi-million dollar sum to allow her joint custody of the children.
Kevin, 29, is seeking 70 per cent custody of the boys and Britney is allegedly terrified he has enough evidence to against her to win, and so is resorting to a cash-for-kids settlement, giving her 70 per cent custody.
A source said: "She is a caring, devoted mom despite her crazy lifestyle. The kids mean the world to her."
"However, she has finally come to terms with the fact that the way things are heading, she is going to lose them."
"She doesn't think she will win full custody. So she has decided to reach a compromise with Kevin where she will have most custody."
