Oath the Humanity: Britney Deposed

Oath the Humanity: Britney Deposed

Los Angeles (E! Online) - It's time for Britney Spears to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. So help us, God. The pop star is due to submit to questioning from Kevin Federline's attorneys Wednesday morning, giving, at long last, a deposition in the ex-couple's ongoing custody battle, sources close to the case confirm to E! News.

Spears' under-oath testimony is scheduled to kick off at the Los Angeles offices of Federline's main legal man, Mark Vincent Kaplan, at roughly 10 a.m. The Q&A session, which Federline's lawyers have been laboring for more than a year to secure, is expected to last most of the day.

The 26-year-old will likely be grilled on such issues as her past drug and alcohol use, her struggles to abide by Court Commissioner Scott M. Gordon's orders, her penchant for rolling over the feet of bystanders and her general fitness as a mother to sons Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1.

A November motion from the Department of Child and Family Services made public last week indicated the agency "has concerns of its own regarding the safety and welfare of the children if the children are left in the mother's care."

Fortunately for Spears, the details Wednesday's deposition won't be fit for public consumption.

On Oct. 26, Gordon ruled the session could not be videotaped, after Spears' legal crew voiced fears the recording would be leaked.

So, when Spears arrives for her deposition Wednesday morning, she will be accompanied by her lawyers, including lead attorney Sorrell Trope, and a court stenographer, but no cameraman.

Kaplan has already grilled several members of Spears' posse, including sidekick Alli Sims, former manager Larry Rudolph and former bodyguard and manny Daimon Shippen.

Spears second banana Sam Lufti was scheduled to be deposed Nov. 30, but he failed to show for his appointment. Federline's camp is planning to file a motion compelling the self-styled movie producer to testify in January.

The 29-year-old Federline was granted primary physical custody of his sons with Spears earlier this year, with supervised visitation given to his ex. Last month, attorneys for the duo managed to keep it civil long enough to hash out a holiday schedule without assistance from the court.
