A lawyer for Kevin Federline wants the Los Angeles Police Department to release its report on an incident at ex-wife Britney Spears’ home that led to the pop star losing custody of her two sons.

According to a court order released by Los Angeles County Superior Court yesterday, there was a hearing on Thursday in the couple’s child custody dispute.

Mr Federline’s lawyer, Mark Kaplan, asked for the police report and also requested the names of the officers who responded to the incident.

A hearing on the requests was set for Monday.

On January 3, police intervened when Spears refused to return the children to her ex-husband after a court-monitored visit.

After a stand-off, Spears was taken to a hospital in an ambulance that was chased by a crowd of photographers.

The next day, Commissioner Scott Gordon awarded sole legal and physical custody of the boys, one-year-old Jayden and two-year-old Sean, to Mr Federline and suspended Spears’ visitation rights.

Spears left Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre a day and a half later.

According to the court order, the judge denied a request from Spears’ lawyers to close Thursday’s hearing to the media.

Court spokesman Allan Parachini said it would be unusual if the lawyers did not move to close Monday’s hearing to the press.
