Police called to Britney Spears' house


Police were called to the residence of Britney Spears late Thursday in a custody dispute involving her children, a police spokesman said.

Around 8 p.m. police were called to Spears' Los Angeles residence, said Officer Jason Lee. At 10 p.m., the police were still there, he said.

The call involved a "family custodial dispute that we are trying to resolve ... peacefully by court order," said Lee.

Lee declined to give more details.

Spears and ex-husband Kevin Federline are fighting over custody of their you sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James.

Federline has temporary custody of the children because Spears, who has limited visitation rights, has defied court orders. The two were married in October 2004 and divorced in July.

Calls to attorneys for Federline and Spears were not immediately returned.

Earlier Thursday, appeared for a deposition in her custody dispute.

Spears was deposed for just 14 minutes, attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan told reporters after Spears left.

Spears called in sick for a Dec. 12 court-ordered deposition, but was photographed that day driving with a friend. She also didn't show up for a session Wednesday, Kaplan said.

Spears' attorneys from the firm Trope and Trope on Wednesday filed a court motion asking to be relieved due to a "breakdown" in communication with their client.

Kaplan said Spears' attorneys were present for what became a very abbreviated session.

"The deposition proceeding did go forward today. It was scheduled for 9:45 to 11:45," Kaplan said. "However, it wasn't able to commence until 11:32."

"You can imagine in 14 minutes there's not a lot of time to develop questions," he said.

Kaplan said another deposition will be scheduled.
