Spears loses custody of kids


A judge Monday ordered that pop star Britney Spears' ex-husband, Kevin Federline, take custody of their two children until further notice, starting Wednesday, court documents showed.

The order, issued by Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon, stated that Federline "is to retain physical custody of the minor children (starting at noon) on Wednesday ... until further order of the court."

Representatives for Spears and Federline were not immediately available for comment.

The judge's order came 10 days after the 25-year-old singer was charged with hit and run and driving without a valid license.

She and Federline have been battling over custody of their two sons, Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1.
