LATEST: Britney Spears' estranged husband Kevin Federline insists he never called for an emergency hearing on the custody of his children and believes someone was playing a vile prank. MICHAEL SANDS, a publicist for Federline's attorney, claims someone made up the news of the hearing and then told Los Angeles Superior Court spokesman ALLAN PARACHINI about it. Federline and his attorney, MARK VINCENT KAPLAN, say they never called for a hearing and that no court papers for a hearing were ever filed. Parachini later issued an update after receiving a call from Kaplan saying no hearing request had been filed by Federline. Parachini explained, "A lawyer has called the bailiff and indicated nothing is going to happen today." Meanwhile, Federline's lawyer issued a statement saying, "Kevin continues to be a very focused father with his children with hands-on management." Federline sought spousal support and sole custody of the boys after Spears filed for divorce in November (06), but a temporary order issued 1 February (07) granted joint custody throughout this month.
