Troubled pop star Britney Spears has filed an emergency court motion seeking to expand visitation rights with her children, who she lost custody of last week.
Mark Vincent Kaplan, lawyer for Spears' ex-husband Kevin Federline, told The Associated Press he received the motion yesterday and will be in court in Los Angeles today.
Whether Spears herself will show up is unknown.
Spears was ordered October 1st to relinquish custody of her children by a court commissioner who had raised concerns about drug and alcohol use.
Superior Court Commissioner Scott M. Gordon later granted some visitation rights to Spears, but required a monitor must watch her while she's with her sons, 2-year-old Sean Preston and 1-year-old Jayden James.
The next custody hearing had originally been set for October 26th.
