Britney Spears ordered to take drugs tests by court

Singer also told to see 'parenting coach'

Britney Spears has been ordered to undergo drug and alcohol tests twice a week by US courts.

Following on from yesterday’s (September 18) revelations that both her management and lawyer have bailed on the singer, court documents in her child custody dispute have been made public which detail that Spears must take regular tests.

The court has also ordered the singer and her former husband Kevin Federline to complete parenting classes, reports BBC News.

The pair must meet a “parenting coach” for eight hours a week, but only Spears must adhere to the weekly drug and alcohol testing.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Scott M Gordon said Britney Spears displayed “a habitual, frequent and continuous use of controlled substances and alcohol”.

The court order, enforced on Monday (September 17), requests that both parents refrain from drinking and using drugs around their two children, and specifically 12 hours before either parent cares for them.
