Troubled pop star BRITNEY SPEARS has called an emergency hearing with a judge in a desperate bid to see her sons as part of her mental health rehabilitation.
The singer’s lawyers have scheduled a session at a Los Angeles court on Wednesday (23Jan08) morning and will be asking for Spears to be allowed “monitored visitation in a therapeutic setting”.
Commissioner Scott Gordon, who has been overseeing much of Spears’ custody case, has repeatedly ordered the Toxic hitmaker to undergo a mental check – known as a 730 evaluation – which she has consistently refused.
But, according to TMZ.com, the star is now hoping the courts will allow her to see Sean Preston, two, and Jayden James, one, as part of a plan to allow the her to get mental health help in a “creative way”.
Spears has been stripped of all custody and visitation rights following a string of bizarre incidents including an apparent breakdown earlier this month
(Jan08) when she refused to hand her boys back to Federline following a scheduled visit. The incident sparked a lengthy stand off with police at her Beverly Hills home and culminated in the star being hospitalized under a mental health order.
