Britney's Pal Alli Sims Served with Legal Papers

At 2:30 a.m. on Sunday, Britney Spears's longtime pal, Alli Sims, was served with legal papers concerning the ongoing custody battle between Spears and her ex-husband, Kevin Federline, a source tells PEOPLE.

Sims was leaving a party at a private home in the Hollywood Hills when she was served by Aaron Cohen of IMS-Security.

"Alli was really shocked and covered her face," an observer tells PEOPLE. "[She was] really distraught and said 'Oh my God.' "

Spears, who was also at the party, did not witness the serving of the papers, according to the observer.

The papers are a deposition subpoena sent by Federline's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, compelling Sims to testify about Spears's parenting skills.

Sims, who has known Spears since childhood and is regularly at her side while partying in Los Angeles, recently told PEOPLE: "[Britney] is a wonderful mom and she is so hands-on. ... Britney loves those babies to death. And they adore her."

On Wednesday, Federline filed for primary custody of the couple's two sons, Sean Preston, 22 months, and Jayden James, 10 months.

A source close to Federline told PEOPLE recently that the would-be rapper has been worried about Spears's behavior and thinks she may be exposing the boys to "unnecessary risk."

Sources connected with the custody battle between Britney Spears and Kevin Federline tell TMZ $$$$ may really be at the heart of the tussle over the kids.

As we first reported, K-Fed is going back to court asking for more custody of the kids. Federline just agreed to a 50/50 split. Then, he turned around almost immediately and filed papers asking for 70/30. So why such a sudden change of heart?

It's puzzling that Kevin is suddenly alarmed, given that he's had absolutely no contact with Spears for almost three months. In fact, we're told she's begging him to communicate because of parenting issues but he won't play ball.

That brings us to the paperwork Federline filed. Sources say there are declarations from Kevin, both of his lawyers, Kevin's nanny and a nanny who interviewed with Britney is October, 2006, before the couple separated. In the papers, Federline's lawyer also included various magazine articles about Britney. Legal experts say good luck getting that into evidence.

Alli Sims, Britney's cousin, was served over the weekend. Kevin's lawyer wants to take her deposition. Now here's what's telling. Federline's lawyer also wants to take Britney's depo, but a source connected with Alli says the deposition notice Britney received is all financial -- in other words, the references are all about money, not the kids.

So does K-Fed want more custody just so he can get more cash? A Federline source says it's all about the kids and not money. Federline wants Britney under oath talking about whether she drinks and how she parents the kids.

Oh, and by the way: Kev's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, is asking that Britney pay his legal fees for the hearing and preparation -- and that they're in the six figures.

Kevin's lawyer just served Alli and JR to get them to talk, obviously he'll have more info besides the tabloids. Sounds like a lot of sources saying different things, and a gossip blog putting a spin on it, what's new. Just because you like the spin doesn't make it any different from any other article trashing Britney.

There's so many naive people who know nothing about divorce and make all kinds extreme statements. Obviously money is something that needs to be worked out as well as custody. Duh. What did you think divorce was?
