(Newser) – Pop tart Britney Spears has been granted supervised visits with her two young sons just days after she sensationally lost custody to the boys' father. Spears was not present at a three-hour closed-door hearing in Los Angeles yesterday, but ex-husband Kevin Federline appeared, sporting an eye patch.

Spears will be allowed up to two-hour supervised visits, eventually building to longer periods. It will take at least three months of clean drug tests before the court will consider allowing Spears unsupervised visits. Spears lost custody of the children after she failed to show up for a court-ordered drug test and continued to drive without a valid license. She finally obtained a license earlier this week.
