Britney finally shows up for court appearance

She's two hours late and stays for just 14 minutes

Britney finally shows up for court appearance
Britney Spears finally made it to court today (January 3) after failing to appear five times in the same case.

Spears was deposed in the child custody case with her ex-husband Kevin Federline, who currently has custody of the pair’s two children Jayden James and Sean Preston.

Spears two hours late to court, wearing a pink dress and sunglasses, and stayed for just 14 minutes.

According to Federline’s lawyer Mark Vincent Kaplan, the deposition was scheduled from 9.45 to 11.45 but Spears lateness forced it to begin at 11.32 leaving them just 14 minutes to question her

"You can imagine in 14 minutes there's not a lot of time to develop questions" Kaplan told reporters.

Lawyers for Spears yesterday requested that they be relieved of representation duties. They were present with her today.

Another deposition will be scheduled.
