As an unscheduled hearing behind closed doors took place Monday morning in the custody battle between exes Kevin Federline and Britney Spears, her former manager Larry Rudolph got word out that he wants no part of their legal battle - for fear of what he possibly might have to reveal about Spears. "He said he's doing his best to hide from Kevin's process server," Ryan Seacrest, who was in contact with Rudolph over the weekend, said on his radio show. "He's actually on the run. They are trying to track him down and serve him with a subpoena and they want him to appear and testify in the custody battle." Rudolph, who was fired by Spears earlier this year, "doesn't want to be served because he said it won't be good for Britney," said Seacrest. "After all they have been through he is still loyal to her, and he doesn't want to have to go under oath and talk about certain things that might hurt her." So far, Spears's former assistant Shannon Funk, bodyguard Daimon Shippen and friend Alli Sims have been presented with subpoenas requiring them to testify in the custody case. Seacrest added that Rudolph wants it publicly known that he is avoiding being served. "There is obviously a reason why he wants [that information] out there," said Seacrest. "Here is a guy who was with her from the beginning, watched her rise to massive success, was her dear friend and confidante, then was fired and now doesn't want to have to speak in court, because he wants to be loyal to her. There's another chapter to this."
