A Los Angeles County Court commissioner laid down the law to singer Britney Spears today, saying there was evidence that the pop star was "a habitual, frequent and continuous" user of drugs and alcohol and ordered mandatory, random biweekly drug tests.
The commissioner, ruling in a dispute between Spears and her former husband, Kevin Federline, over custody of their two children, also ruled that she must meet with a parenting coach.
Federline wanted to reconsider the pair's child custody agreement amid several high-profile incidents of erratic behavior by Spears.
Despite taking Spears to task, Commissioner Scott M. Gordon did not change the custody agreement, which gives each parent shared custody of the children.
The court proceeding comes about a year after Spears, 25, filed for divorce from Federline, 29, after two years of marriage.
