Spears loses custody of sons L.A. Superior Court Judge Scott M. Gordon ruled that Britney Spears must surrender custody of her two children to their father, ex-husband Kevin Federline. Federline will take custody of Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1, on Wednesday (Oct. 3) ''until further order of the court.'' Gordon did not give a reason for his ruling, which follows an unspecified oral motion made by Federline's attorneys that was handled in a closed-door hearing. Another hearing is scheduled for Wednesday. Spears has recently been charged with hit-and-run and driving without a valid California license, and faces claims made by her ex-bodyguard that she used drugs and is a danger to her children. Gordon has already declared that Spears is a ''habitual, frequent, and continuous'' user of alcohol and controlled substances, and ordered her to submit to random twice-weekly testing.
