UsMagazine.com, People magazine, X17 and TMZ report Britney Spears is refusing to turn over her two boys Sean Preston and Jayden James to her ex-husband Kevin Federline in defiance of court-mandated custody hours. Because of this, the LAPD were called and are currently outside the troubled pop tart’s home. “There have been police sent to that residence,” a LAPD officer tells Usmagazine.com. “We don’t know any more at this time, but apparently they’ve arrived.” Also at the residence is K-Fed’s lawyer Mark Vincent Kaplan.
Sorrell Trope, the attorney for Spears who has requested to be removed as her counsel, told the mag, “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.”
LAPD officer Jason Lee tells People magazine: “Around 8 p.m. we got a call about a custodial dispute regarding Britney Spears’s children. Officers are still there. We’re trying to resolve the dispute peacefully per a court order.”
Meanwhile, a witness tells OK! magazine that the scene is “like a hostage situation in there,” adding that Britney’s “cousin” Alli Sims and assistant Carla have exited the home.
