Britney Spears granted three visits per week with sons

Commissioner Scott Gordon court ordered the ‘Toxic’ singer to work out a holiday schedule with ex-husband Kevin Federline.

In addition, the judge ordered that Spears’ house must be childproofed for the visits.

In his order, the judge wrote that, when Britney has the kids, “the environment at the house ranged from chaotic to almost sombre with little communication at all.”

The ruling also requires Spears to undergo random weekly drug and alcohol tests, reports The Sun.

Spears, 25, also must continue meeting with a court-appointed parenting coach, and the kids must be in car seats when they are being driven, the ruling states.

The nine-page ruling said Spears could have overnight visits with her kids - something she had been seeking. She will get two visits a week from noon to 7pm and one from noon to 10am the next morning.

The order also cited some details of an Oct. 19 report submitted by parenting coach Lisa Hacker about her observations of Spears with her children.

“During all three of my visits, Ms. Spears rarely engaged with the children in either conversation or play,” Hacker had said.

The coach also said Spears seemed to have “a lack of general attention at times” but there was nothing she would characterise as “abusive in a traditional sense.”

The ruling came after a three-hour hearing on Oct 26 attended by both Spears and Federline.

Commissioner Gordon previously said there was evidence that Spears is a “habitual, frequent and continuous” user of drugs and alcohol.

He had withdrawn approval for her to even visit the children after finding she had failed to comply with some conditions for shared custody. (ANI)
