Britney Still Can't See Her Sons

Britney Spears was not granted visitation rights with her two sons after the singer arrived for a custody hearing Wednesday – then left the courthouse before it began. "The hearing is over. The previous custody orders – in which Ms Spears has no visitation – have not changed," court rep Allan Parachini said Wednesday.

"Both sides were heard in court. Notice was taken of Ms. Spears's absence by the court," he continued. "She arrived at the courthouse, but (shortly afterward) indicated that she wanted to leave. Kevin [Federline] did answer some questions posed by (Commissioner Scott Gordon)."

The emergency hearing, which the pop singer had requested, was a replay of last week's hearing, when Britney showed up at the courthouse only to depart, missing a session in which she lost all access to sons Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1.

Neither Britney nor her ex-husband Kevin Federline is required to attend the hearings. Britney and Kevin arrived separately at the downtown Los Angeles courthouse Wednesday morning. Kevin was seen entering the courtroom, but a court spokesman said Britney had left in her Mercedes.

On Monday, Brit was questioned for 45 minutes by Kevin’s attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan in what the lawyer called a "gut-wrenching" deposition.
