This morning I was in LA Superior, Department 88 on another matter, and who should be waiting outside the courthouse? Media, and lots of them! It was all there, more attention for the Britster than for Anthony Pellicano down the street, even though the young lady under the court’s and the cameras’ scrutiny didn’t grace us with her actual presence today.
Go figure! I guess everyone wants to be there for the “crash and burn.” Well, pretty soon Mark Kaplan showed up with Mr. Federline! Federline should reconsider his dress for court. He had a black suit and an unbuttoned, semi-pressed white shirt. I have seen better dressed indigents being prepared for burial than what this guy looked like, and the hair! He is not a bad-looking kid, but it would appear that he is lacking something…? Oh, I know…CHARACTER!
It did become evident that he is a good tipper, on a bill of less than $390 bucks at a local eatery he left a $2,000 tip!
Ms. Stacey Phillips, Brit’s latest barrister (aka the “Queen of Self-Promotion”), stated that she thought that was not responsible behavior, and that he should have given that $2,000 to his lawyers to pay down the $450,000 that they were trying to squeeze the Britster for (poor Britney gets stuck with the tab for K-Fed’s legal expenses, on top of her own)! Yes, she did say that, I was there and I heard it!
Well, back to the story, Kaplan shows up with his client and he is looking sallow â€” not to be morbid, but his color was all off, he looked like a chilled cadaver â€” this stuff I know! He was gray as if there was a circulation problem. Remember Bela Lugosi in those old vampire movies…he had more color than Mark did this morning. It would all become clear to me why!
He was here this morning on a few issues â€” one was that he wanted the court to get him paid, you know, “issue orders”…and he wanted a lot…$450,000.00! Pretty soon Stacey Philips shows up wearing a cream colored two-piece suit and zebra-striped shoes…nice. The suit was form-fitting and was a little snug across her backside…but still nice! And in tow pulling her legal briefs and papers was Britney’s dad â€” yes, he was the mule for the day, what a nice daddy! It was going to be him or a third string lawyer from the firm â€” remember these are tight times and we must save Britney’s MOOLAH! He sat down, and he and Federline just chit-chatted up a storm and were very nice to each other â€” it was a soft moment to observe, you had to be there.
