Britney Spears must attend joint counselling sessions with ex-husband Kevin Federline to keep visitation rights to her sons.

Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Scott M. Gordon imposed the strict demands on the Toxic singer – who lost custody of sons Sean Preston, two and one-year-old Jayden James on Monday (01.10.07) – at Wednesday’s hearing (03.10.07).

He ruled Britney must complete “at least three individual counselling sessions” and “at least three joint counselling sessions” before the next hearing on 26 October.

The 25-year-old singer must take twice weekly random drug and alcohol tests and the judge warned “a missed drug test, refusal to submit to a test, or failure to respond to the testing agency’s call shall be deemed by the court as a failed test.”

Court documents also state “the monitor shall terminate visitation immediately if any conduct or action by Britney endangers the minor children.”

Kevin will keep full custody of the boys until the next court date which both he and Britney must attend.

It was revealed yesterday (04.10.07), Britney’s former bodyguard Tony Barretto – who gave evidence against her in the custody battle – has filed a Child Abuse Referral against her.

This gives the Department of Child and Family Services the legal power to investigate the mother-of-two’s care of her sons.

Barretto’s lawyer, Gloria Allred released a statement which said: “I call on Britney Spears to cooperate with the investigation of Children and Family Services.

“As part of their investigation they will want to interview her. Rather than avoiding them she should speak with them as soon as possible and give them the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so that they can fulfil their legal mandate to protect the children and keep them safe.”

Meanwhile, Britney’s mother Lynne Spears has finally broken her silence over her estranged daughter.

She said last night: “I just want to say that I love my daughter – very much.”
