Brit Gets Visitation Rights — Was The Judge Too Harsh?

Kevin Federline just emerged from court (wearing an eye patch, which I assume we'll learn more about later) after testifying in today's hearing where Brit was a no show. Britney lost custody of the two boys on Monday and this afternoon the judge ruled to leave Kevin with full custody of the kids, but allow Britney monitored visitation rights. The next hearing is set for October 26th, and the judge ruled that both parties must be present.

Since Monday, Brit has finally gotten a valid CA license and signed the court order papers saying that she will attend the mandatory parenting classes and take the drug tests. It would seem she is taking steps in the right direction, but it apparently wasn't enough to prove to the judge that she deserves custody. Maybe, just maybe she has learned her lesson and these past two days were the wake-up call she needs to get her life in order.

What do you think — was the judge too harsh in deciding to keep full custody with Kevin?

I don't like Britney and as a mum I feel sad for those kids but you've never seen Kevin with the children only grandparents and nanny! He's out party but that's okey? He's the one who's smoking weed and that's okey? The only good about him is that he got himself a good lawyer that will make Britney pay so he still can play the fields. There's no proof that Kevin is a good father just because Britney is not the best mother. He only wants her money and he didn't acted until she stopped paying him every month.

It seems she's trying her hardest to NOT get awarded custody. What does she do after the judge gives his decision? She gets a tan. Does that sound like someone who wants custody of her own kids?

The kids should have been taken away a long time ago. At this rate, she'll never learn her lesson.

Everyone around is concernced that she's going to kill herself. You don't leave children alone with someone like that. I mean there have been reports of her body guards not allowing her to swim with the boys, due to their fear she would kill them...

She did not even show up so how important could it be for her? She is more interested in being followed around by the paps asis her "cousin".

I'm not surprised. When the ex parte motion awarded Kevin physical custody, albeit temporary, that pretty much indicated to me that Brit has bigger issues than just obtaining a valid driver's license. The judge's primary concern is to insure the health, safety and welfare of the children. The burden is now on Britney to demonstrate that she is responsible, capable of being a decent parent and following through on all of the court orders in a thoughtful and timely manner. It takes a lot to lose custody but once it happens it can take up to a year of good behavior to regain. Brit will be given visitation rights most likely with supervision until then.

I think she's lucky to even get visitation rights!

He was not too hard on her. She didn't do what the court ordered because she thought she didn't have to.

The judge is only looking out for those children, it dosen't matter if you are Britney Spears or Joe Blow. I agree, it looks like she is totally not interested in her children and dosen't even want them. I would die if my son was taken away and do everything I could to get him back. She will regret this in the future when she wants them in her life and they want nothing to do with her.

She didn't even show up? Then the judge was absolutely right to deny her parental rights.

while i'm sure there are worse parents out there in the world, she's being a shady parent infront of the world, it's her own fault. anyone who has entered into the entertainment industry after the golden age of hollywood knows they have little expectation of privacy. it's not like OK!, Us Weekly and People just hit the news stands this year. People is older than she is. big thanks to hurst for sensational entertainment.
