Britney Spears has temporarily lost custody of her children, two-year-old Sean Preston and one-year-old Jayden James. At a hearing earlier today in Los Angeles, a judge awarded custody of the two boys to ex-husband Kevin Federline starting this Wednesday until the court orders otherwise. It looks like twelve-plus months of panty-free partying, rehab stints, the VMAs disaster, damaging bodyguard testimony and Spears' failure to hang on to legal counsel probably didn't help her case. We could joke about how bad a mother you have to be to lose your children to a dude like K-Fed, but at this point, we just feel really sorry for those kids. Spears must still attend counseling, meet with a parenting coach and submit to random drug testing.
