Just hours after a judge ordered Britney Spears to undergo random drug testing, the troubled mother-of-two made it clear she is in no rush to tame her wild ways by heading out for a late-night bender with pop singer Avril Lavigne.
The 25-year-old was first spotted at Hollywood club Winston’s before moving on to celebrity haunt Hyde Lounge, where she danced on table tops until the bar closed at 2am.
An onlooker told American magazine People: “They kept bringing her shots and so they were drinking.”
“She was dancing on the tables trying to be really sexy, even putting a black sock over her head as a hat, and putting on a show for everyone.”
Earlier that day, a judge described Britney as a ‘habitual and frequent user’ of controlled substances and alcohol, and ordered to undergo random drug testing and hire a parenting coach in order to keep her children.
Superior Court Commissioner Scott Gordon ruled: “Based on the evidence presented, the court finds that there is habitual, frequent and continuous use of controlled substances and alcohol by the petitioner”.
Gordon ordered Spears to undergo testing for drugs and alcohol twice per week on random dates and times.
Both Spears and Federline, 29, are to undergo ‘joint co-parenting counselling’ and the judge said each must refrain from making derogatory remarks about the other.
And the pair were also barred from using drink or drugs for 12 hours before having custody of the children.
But he saved his most stringent requirements for troubled Britney, who in recent months has exhibited bizarre behaviour after completing a rehab program in March.
Britney was ordered to meet with a counsellor at least once a week to address parenting issues and she must work with a parenting coach at least eight hours a week, according to court documents released after the hearing.
“The parenting coach is to observe (Spears’s) interaction with the minor children and her parenting skills,” the Commissioner wrote.
The coach will provide lawyers on both sides with written reports, and will appear in court at the next hearing scheduled between Spear’s and Federline on Nov 26.
Federline, 29, who Britney has now divorced, had been asking for increased custody of the boys, but Gordon maintained the current 50/50 joint arrangement.
