    BEIJING, Nov. 9 (Xinhuanet) -- Britney Spears must provide a single, working telephone number so that drug testing lab is able to reach her, a court commissioner ruled Thursday.

    "There needs to be one number that the testing facility calls that she responds to," Superior Court Commissioner Scott Gordon ruled. If she has a necessity to change her phone numbers, that's fine, but everyone involved must be notified, he said.

    The rule was made after Mark Vincent Kaplan, attorney of Spears's ex-husband complained that the pop star failed to respond to eight of 14 laboratory requests for drug testing.

    Spears's lawyer Anne Kiley argued Spears did not respond to the lab phone calls within an hour because she was sleeping. Spears should be given six hours to respond to the laboratory phone requests, she said.

    But Gordon said that he was not going to make any further modifications to existing custody orders and suggested Spears get a separate cell phone for lab use only.

    Under those orders, Federline has primary custody. Spears can have one overnight visit and two daytime visits a week. A court-appointed parenting coach, a childproofed home and car restraints were all written into the orders.

    Spears and Federline married in October 2004 and divorced this July. Kevin Federline has temporary custody of Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1.
