People.com reported that L.A. Superior Court Commissioner Scott Gordon gave no reasons in his written decision, issued after lawyers met with him in a private session requested by Federline's lawyer. The ruling says that Federline gets custody starting Wednesday.
But the controversy lies in the fact that the judge's ruling was influenced by recent misdemeanor charges against Spears, including a minor hit-and-run incident while driving without her license (oh, Britney). Spears' ex-bodyguard also claimed to have witnessed her using drugs and being a "danger" to her kids.
Another hearing is set for tomorrow.
While I am sympathetic towards Britney (tabloids all say that her kids are the only thing she has going for her now), I must say that there are certain parenting skills she needs to develop before she's entrusted with her kids again. Telling her 2-year-old to go fetch mommy's cigarettes is just one of the crazy cases I've heard of her bad mothering tales.
