While her ex-husband and their respective lawyers battled it out yesterday in a three-hour court hearing about the custody of her kids, Britney Spears did what any caring, accountable mom would do – she skipped court to go to a gas station, vitamin store and Starbucks. And she brought her real child – pet dog London – along with her! She dotes, ya’ll. Her absence must have pissed off the judge, because he’s ordered the starlet to be present at their next hearing on October 26th. After completely failing to comply with any of the judge’s orders, Brit has kinda sorta started to get her sh*t together. She finally obtained her California driver’s license this week and is allegedly scheduling her first drug test. But it still didn’t sway the judge’s ruling – K-Fed still has full custody of their two boys, with Britney allowed supervised visitation with the tots.
Though she was rumored to be heading to rehab, the singer was spotted later in the day checking into the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills (even though she owns like, five mansions). A hotel employee reported that she seemed to be ” in a really good mood.” Of course she is! She’s got no god damn kids to worry about any more! She can spend an hour in the “vitamin shop” if she wants and her arms are free to cuddle with her 20-pound whole milk Frappuccino with whipped cream. Her dream of motherhood is finally realized. Way to go, B! [Image: Getty]
