Britney Spears' former manager served in custody battle

08/30/2007 at 11:27 PM ET

The saga continues in the ongoing custody battle between singer Britney Spears, 25, and ex-husband Kevin Federline, 29. In addition to her former assistant, bodyguard, and former rehab facility; Britney’s former manager Larry Rudolph has now been subpoenaed to testify.

According to People, Larry — who has been trying to avoid getting served in order to protect Britney — was served with papers while at the L.A. tanning salon, Sunset Tan, where he is part owner. Erin Tietsort, assistant manager of the salon said,

We asked her who she was but she just said she had a meeting with [Larry]. After he walked in he said, ‘Can I help you?’ and she just handed the papers and left. He had no idea. He then said [to himself], "Oh, okay. Yeah. They’ve been looking for me. This is for Britney Spears-Kevin Federline.’ I was like, ‘Really?’ And he just stared out the window. You could tell he wasn’t too happy about it.

Britney and Kevin have two children together, sons Sean Preston, 23 months, and Jayden James, 11 months.

Wasn’t it just yesterday that Perez Hilton revealed to the world where he was hiding? He was probably the one who tipped them off.

Also, I’m hearing the child abuse claims are coming from Britney making the kids drink alcohol to ensure they sleep. Anyone hear anything more on this?

Sarah’s note: What we’ve heard is improper dental care and poor eating and sleeping habits. Nothing about alcohol.

My ex SIL used to give her daughter Nyquil or Benadryl to knock her out at nights.

did everybody see that KFed’s spousal support ends in November??? I strongly believe all this is heading towards him getting MORE money. I seriously think he is using the whole custody thing as a way to get more money from Britney. The way Brit is with her own teeth why oh why would she neglect her own kids teeth???

I don’t think he was really hiding. I get the feeling that he just wanted it made public that he was so Brittney wouldn’t hold it against him when he told the truth. Why else would somebody say publicly in a high-profile case that they were running and hiding so they wouldn’t be served? That’s just crazy to me. But, then again, this whole case is bizarre.

IF BS is a mature young woman she won’t hold anything against a person sworn to tell the truth under oath. JMO

You know, everytime I see a post about her anymore, it just breaks my heart, especially about him serving this person, and that person in this custody battle. Kevin seems to be taking some really low blows with all of the people in her life that he is serving with papers. Family, friends, co-workers..that is unfair and quite frankly, unnecessary. I am sure the judge would have been able to make a sound decision with the information at hand. Apparently that wasn’t enough for Kevin, though. It seems that he needs to make sure that she is done and over by the time he is finished with her. And to think, before he got with her, no one even knew his name. She helped him get his “rap career” up and running and never thought twice about it, and she was the one that had so much faith in him, calling him the next Eminem. And this is how he thanks her? Nice poetic justice, huh? We really don’t know how much of what these magazines print that their so called “sources” tell them is true about these people in the first place. And, if Kevin thought Britney was such a threat to his sons, why did he ever even agree to the 50/50 custody agreement to begin with? I mean, I am 100% with the majority of the public that when you have 2 small children at home, you most definately shouldn’t be out at the clubs every night. But, at the same time, you are still entitled to some “you” time. Kevin goes out (granted it’s not every night, but he does go out) so, I don’t know why he expects her not to. Maybe it’s that old cliche that the woman it supposed to be home with the kids, I don’t know. I have personally always thought he was rather sneaky anyway. I mean, it’s only been like maybe a year and a half ago or so that everyone was feeling sorry for Britney and bashing Kevin because he was out every night and flirting with all kinds of women and making her look like an idiot. I sort of think that this all started with her trying to give him a dose of his own medicine and just sort of got carried away. Of course, I could be wrong..
Her whole life that we have known of her (since she was like 14 or so) her job was to please people, and she did a good job of it. Everyone loved her. As she got older, it seemed to me that she wanted to test the waters, or rock the boat so to speak. She had a little fun, got a little crazy..she was being a normal 18-19 year old that has lived their life prior to that for everyone else. When she did meet Kevin, she thought it was true love, they got married, had a baby, had another one..we’ve all been there. I know I have. Unfortunately for her, it wasn’t true love. It didn’t work out. And, as usual, her life was on display for the world to see. Every mistake and detail played out by the cameras. I couldn’t imagine that, could you guys? She has never tried to keep those kids from Kevin, which is the funny thing to me as to why Kevin is acting the way he is about her seeing them. If we are going to believe all the bad stuff we read about her in the magazines, we might as well believe all the bad stuff about him, too, right? If that’s the case, I just read last week that when he has the boys he has 2 nannies with him at all times, and that they plan pretty much all the things like meals and meal preparation and give the boys their baths and get them ready for bedtime. So, what’s he fussing about? Because she isn’t doing that either? See what I mean? It isn’t like she doesn’t have someone doing it for her like he does. She has nannies as well. It really strikes me as odd that we never see Kevin with his other 2 kids either. I know he has visitation of them, too. And, I know alot of people will jump in and say that Shar Jackson is a good mother and he has no reason to fight for custody of those 2 kids like he does of these 2, but my point is this..how would we even know that? We don’t know much about Shar other than the fact that she is Kevin’s ex and they have 2 kdis together. Britney is followed around and the media reports about it if she passes gas. They pick her apart. She doesn’t even stand a chance. A couple of weeks ago, she took the boys out on a boat in CA..the paps took a bunch of pics of them, and people went NUTS fussing about her not having life jackets on the boys. Last week one evening, the manager of the boating company that she used the day she took the boys out on the boat was on Extra talking about all the media attention that subject was getting. He was surprised because he said she ASKED them if they had life jackets for her sons. He said she was advised that it was not necessary to have life jackets on such a large boat in the state of CA. Which is true. But yet, they still call her a bad parent. As far as some of the stuff that is being reported as reasons that Kevin wants full custody in the magazines, as to whether or not it’s true, I don’t know, but if it is, I guess some of my friends (and me!) are HORRIBLE parents! I have some friends that let the tooth-brushing rule slide sometimes at bedtime, and some of them will even let their children have some soda, sometimes even about a half a can (heck, even I do that sometimes!), sometimes when my hubby works late and gets home after our son has went to bed, I will let him go into his room and wake him up and he will tell him that Daddy is home and loves him, oh-and about the improper dental care that Kevin is accusing Britney of-my son didn’t have his 1st dentist visit until he was 4. I couldn’t find a dentist where we live that would see any child until they were 4 years old. Does any of this make me or my hubby or any of my friends bad parents? Uh..no. And as far as the person that said that they heard that someone said that Britney was making the boys drink alcohol to sleep..I haven’t heard a thing about that at all. I really don’t think she would do that, ever. If a rumor like that got started, I wouldn’t put it past Kevin’s camp to start it. I had a People magazine with Britney on the cover of from back when she shaved her head. My hubby saw the cover of it and he said “Man, that’s awful. I hope she gets some help, I mean, I hope she is OK.” That really surprised me because he never gets into this celebrity stuff at all..he thinks they got money, the shouldn’t have problems..lol. I asked him what he meant about what he said, and he said that he hadn’t seen that look in someone’s eyes since he saw it in mine. Right when I was first diagnosed with post partum depression. I had long thought that that may be what had been what her problems were. They may still be..we will never know, we will only know what the magazines want us to know. I will never leave a mean and nasty comment on this or any other website about her or any other celebrity. Some of the comments that I have read about her on some of the other websites shock me. Not so much this website..but the others..I would want no part of that. I have no idea if she even reads them, but I would never want to think that I had a part in hurting someone like that. These people leave such mean and hurtful comments, they must have alot of hate or strong dislike for her. And they don’t even know her. I don’t see how that is possible. I know that when I was at my lowest when I was dealing with PPD, I could not have dealt with reading anything like that about myself. I wish her and her sons only the best during this time.
