After Britney Spears defied court-mandated visitation hours Thursday night by refusing to turn over her two sons to ex-husband Kevin Federline, police were called to her home and later a reportedly intoxicated Britney Spears was taken via ambulance to Cedars Sinai Medical Center. As of 3:30 a.m PST Friday, Spears remained in the hospital. has learned that the pop star was due to turn over Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1, Thursday at 7 p.m. PST. Federline's bodyguard was supposed to pick them up, but Spears was defiant. She had been with the kids at her Beverly Hills home since noon Thursday, after being briefly deposed earlier in her ongoing custody dispute.
About ninety minutes after refusing to give up the kids, police arrived.
"There have been police sent to that residence," an LAPD officer told Us. "We don't know any more at this time, but apparently they've arrived."
Federline's attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, was seen leaving Spears' home around 9 p.m.
Spears' attorney, Sorrell Trope, tells Us, "In a normal case when someone shows up with a certified court order saying the kids need to be somewhere else, the police see to it that the order is obeyed. But that is in a normal case."
Spears had shown up for a
custody deposition Thursday afternoon (after skipping two depositions in the past month) but left after about 45 minutes.
"She was cooperative," Kaplan said. "There has been no change in anything. It will be continued to another date, which I will not say at this time."
On Wednesday, Trope sought permission from the court to
end his representation of the singer.
A source told "[Trope's firm] couldn’t rein her in. No one can, and it's an embarrassment in front of the judge."
Spears, 26, lost shared custody of her sons in October.
