After a late arrival by Britney to the courtroom, she has been partially granted her request for overnight visits.
Commish to Brit -- Nighttime Is the Right Time
Britney Spears will get one overnight visit with her kids per week.-- at least for now.
L.A. County Court Commissioner Scott Gordon partially accepted her lawyer's plea to give Spears monitored overnight visitation. Spears, who was in court, was sworn in as the afternoon hearing began. She testified, but we don't know what she said.
Spears left the courtroom visibly upset. The overnight visits will be monitored. The parties have not reached an agreement on who the monitor will be.
A court spokesman said the result today was a compromise between the two sides -- Brit wanted more, K-Fed didn't want her to have any overnights.
K-Fed's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, said after the hearing that he met with Brit's lawyers during the lunch hour. The attorneys told the court that they all agreed to "slightly increase" Brit's visitation. In other words, K-Fed agreed to give Brit a break, and a chance.
Kaplan said protections were in place for the kids.
