LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Britney Spears is expected to attend a child-custody hearing today in a Los Angeles courtroom.
The pop star has been under conservatorship of her father since leaving the psychiatric ward of UCLA Medical Center in February.
A month earlier, ex-husband Kevin Federline was given full custody of his two sons by Spears, 2-year-old Sean Preston and 1-year-old Jayden James. That came after police were called to Spears' home when she refused to hand over one of the boys to a Federline bodyguard.
Spears was taken by ambulance to a hospital after the incident. Her visitation rights were suspended, but have been gradually restored in recent months.
