BRIT'S DIRTY DOZEN
DAILY STAR SUNDAY

BRITNEY Spears’ lovers face a court grilling about her steamy sex life.
The singer’s ex-husband Kevin Federline wants the “Dirty Dozen” – including one woman – to give evidence in their child custody battle.
At least two of the people Britney has shared her private life with since she filed for divorce last year have already had witness summonses.
Yesterday a source close to Federline confirmed: “Expect a lot more of Britney’s suitors to find themselves getting hit with legal papers.
“Kevin intends to prove that Britney devotes more energy to partying and pursuing a wild social life than she does being a mom to their two sons.”
In the ten months since Britney, 25, and Federline, 29, broke up last November – they were officially divorced on July 30 – the Toxic singer has been photographed with 12 ‘dates’, including music mogul Jonathan “J.R.” Rotem and American Football quarterback Matt Leinart.
Steamy photos even emerged of Britney and her former personal assistant Shannon Funk topless and apparently tipsy in a hotel pool.
Yesterday a source close to Britney’s mum Lynne said: “Britney’s an adult and she’s an international sex symbol. She’s free to date whoever she likes.
“But racing around town with so many men on the eve of her child custody fight with Kevin is playing right into his hands.
“Any jury is going to study all the photos of her with so many people and wonder just what sort of time she can spare to being a mom.”
Funk and Brit’s close pal Daimon Shippen have already been subpoenaed by private detectives for Federline’s attorney Mark Kaplan.
A spokesman said: “I believe there are a number of other people whose testimony we will be actively seeking.”
Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner has set a court date of September 17.
The full hearing will now go ahead in November.
Lawyers for both sides are expected in court on Friday when Commissioner Gordon will rule on an application by America’s giant NBC television network and People magazine that sealed legal papers in the case be made public.
The hearing is on the same day Britney’s older son Sean Preston turns two. Jayden James is one on Wednesday.
