Yesterday the court was all set for Britney Spears to make an appearance in a scheduled meeting with Commissioner Reva Goetz for her conservatorship case, yet, instead of heading to the courtroom downtown, Britney headed to Calabasas to do some shopping, as X17online first reported yesterday!

So what possibly could be her excuse for not showing up? A "misunderstanding"? Too many paps? Won't there be just as many when she returns next week?

In any case, Britney will have to answer to the judge next Friday the 22nd, but tell us, what do you think the real reason is that she skipped court?
