Brit's Ex-Assistant Served
LOS ANGELES, Calif. (August 15, 2007) – Last night, the third person to be subpoenaed in Kevin Federline’s custody case against pop singer Britney Spears was served.
Shannon Funk, the blonde woman who was by Spears’ side earlier this summer, serving as her assistant, was given papers by Aaron Cohen’s IMS security team in another stealth operation Tuesday evening.
Funk knew she was going to be served, according to a source in the Federline camp. A magazine, the source refused to name, tipped off the former assistant. The source alleges the same publication also told the security team who has been delivering the subpoenas and several paparazzi photo agencies, what flight she was on.
After finding out the magazine had alerted photographers, the security team held a meeting and changed their plans for serving the blonde, former Brit assistant.
“This is not about media, it’s about the safety and security of the whole family,” the source told Access.
Funk’s delivery follows previous hand-offs to people who have worked with Spears including her previous assistant Alli Sims, who got her papers early Sunday morning, and bodyguard Damon Shippen, who was served on Monday night.
Seven more people are expected to be served, a source close to Federline previously told Access. All will be expected to testify about Britney’s parenting.
Spears and Federline currently split the custody of their two boys – Sean Preston and Jayden James, equally, but earlier this month, K-Fed’s lawyer filed paperwork requesting more custody of the children.
