Spears loses custody of sons


Pop star Britney Spears on October 1 lost custody of her two sons after a highly publicised court battle with ex-husband Kevin Federline. “Federline is to retain physical custody of the minor children on Wednesday October 3, 2007 at 12:00 pm until further order of the court,” Judge Scott Gordon wrote in his order.

Celebrity websites TMZ and X17 said Spears took her sons to the drive-through window of a fast food restaurant before handing them over to Federline’s bodyguards shortly after noon on October 1. The divorce between Spears and Federline became final at the end of July.
