Britney Leaves LA Courtroom Upset

Thursday, October 11th, 2007

Britney finally shows in court. TMZ reports that she left the courtroom 3:17 pm, “teary-eyed and visibly upset”.

Her lawyer is pleading for monitored overnight visitation. Commissioner Scott Gordon, partially accepted with monitored overnight visits. The parties have not reached an agreement on choosing a different monitor, other than the one that is currently in place.

Britney was sworn in and did testify, but no word on what she said.

It is reported that she left the court room teary-eyed and visibly upset.

A court spokesman said today was the result of 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. I don’t know why, it’s not like she’s earned it!

Kaplan said protections were in place for the kids.
