Hearing Starts Without Britney, K-Fed in Court

Britney Spears' custody hearing has started without her.

The pop star is a no-show today for the downtown L.A. hearing. Kevin Federline arrived at 9:00 AM for the 9:30 AM hearing. Superior Court Commissioner Scott Gordon began the hearing but reporters are not allowed in the courtroom.

Today's hearing will focus on Brit's standoff with police last week which led to her being stripped of all temporary visitation rights. Firefighters and police officers are expected to testify.

K-Fed's attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan told "Extra" last week that Brit may not see her kids until April if things continue this way.
