BREAKING NEWS: Britney Spears Finally Being Committed?

January 4th, 2008 // 25 Comments

UPDATE: According to Page Six, over the past couple of weeks Britney’s stress over the possibility of losing her kids has resulted in her losing “a tremendous amount of weight” and this is related to her hospital stay. The pop star is under suicide watch and her two boys remain with their father.

Oh it was pandemonium early this morning in Los Angeles when Britney Spears was taken away by ambulance, strapped down to a freakin’ gurney, for “evaluation” at Cedars-Sinai Hospital. The trouble started when there was some kind of crazy three hour stand-off when Britney refused to hand her tots over to Kevin Federline’s bodyguard. Apparently, she was under the influence of an unknown substance (coke, meth, Red Bull) and she’s been placed on a “medical hold” which is basically a mental evaluation, sources say. Hot damn! Is this finally hitting bottom! Reports say she was grinning like a madwoman in the back of the ambulance and that she flipped off the photogs when the ambulance pulled up at the hospital. Stay tuned for more details and hopefully the best photos of a crazy pop songstress strapped to a gurney that you’ve ever seen. Oh the humanity!

    I’m relieved that finally something has occured that required hospitalization for mental status eval. It’s been obvious to many for some time now that Britney Spears is in a serious psychotic event, and needs treatment to reclaim her life. I for one feel sympathy for those people, celebs or not, who suffer from a form of mental illness. While they are at it, someone should evaluate Lynn Spears for the damage she’s done to her two daughters by her method of “mothering”

    Sadly, I am anticipating something really bad to happen to either her, or her children, in the next couple of months. I hope that she can get the help she needs, if only for the sake of those babies. AND GEEZE, take it easy paparazzi! The poor girl needs a break! She is on her way to the mental institution for Christ sakes!

    This dumb cow is just now figuring out she might lose her kids for good? So she then turns around and does the type of stunt that guarantees she loses them. She really is insane or incredibly stupid

  4. Sassafrassy

    Totally agree Patty. Lynn Spears should hang her head in shame for the two train wrecks she has produced. What a selfish, money-hungry, pig. And she is writing a parenting book?! Honey, your 16 year old is knocked up, and your oldest is drugged out, holding her baby hostage. You may want to rethink that.

  5. Joy

    I find this just really sad. I read in Yahoo that Jayden James rode in the ambulance as well?? I really hope that those little boys didn’t come to any harm (physically, anyway… we all know they’ve more than likely been already hurt emotionally). I am praying and hoping she gets some much needed help.

    ABOUT TIME!!!!!!!!!!!

    this can only results as the BEST thing that could of happen to my girl Brit Brit, or the worse. She can only get better or kill herself… and for all the losers that have stop believing in her, I HAVE NOT. I have been like “what ever” about her, but this shows she is in need of medication, off of booze and she NEEDS GOD!!!!!!!

    I will pray for her. I want her back, I want my Britney BACK, she can do it…..

    help me pray for this lost soul.

    It’s just too bad that Lynne didn’t have her parenting book in print already. If Brit woulda just had some sort of parental reference to guide her, this wouldn’t even be an issue!

    But seriously, even after a visually stunning celebritney train-wreck, I hope someone’s there to get her and JL (and even Lynne) the help they desperately need.

    I don’t wish suicide on anyone (especially a parent or child), and those who do have a date with Karma.

  8. DruNken LauRen

    its a F shame all of you people are pointing fingers like you have NEVER f’up before in your life.

    It is not that momma Spears is a bad mother, the only difference is that she is in the spot light… and you know what??? she is banking and you are not and her girls, both of her girls will successed!!!!!!!!! ok? mark my words

    and you will continue to suck….

  9. Jennifer

    This makes me want to cry. I really do feel sorry for her. I think with the world on her shoulders and abusing her with their taunts and comments, with every incident that occurs in her life, she has reached her limit. I am a mother myself and I would walk through fire for my 2 children and I feel that this is what she is doing. Why in the world they would let her young child ride in the ambulance and watch is beyond me. I would have those techs fired and her monitor would be fired too. That is not good for the son. No one should witness her behavior at that moment except for the medical staff. I do believe she needs help and with that said, I think bloggers, the paps, and everyone in general need to back off and give her some space and some time to heal. Mental illness is a disease and there is no cure for it just treatment, understanding, and a lot of love.

  10. Maggie

    First off, why was the bodyguard picking up the kids? Why not Kevin?

  11. bruchick

    Britney has no sense of responsibility; & her kids are victims of her crazy antics, the poor things.

  12. rsm

    Enough already. This is just sad. Who cares at this point whether she courts the press or not?She’s clearly mentally ill. There are a lot of other celebrities out there to report on. “Britney’s crazy” is not news anymore. Move on and let this girl get some help.

  13. katy

    I feel sorry for here. She have a probl and are in need for help not pap al the time. I can’t believe how cruel people are.

    I had been crazy myself if I had lived like here. Som one ho always has an opinion about my hair, eye,clothes, boots,how I treat my kids, you name it!!
    Im glad Im not live in US
    Leave here alone!!!

  14. All of you lunatics whining boo-hoo for Britney…STFU.

    Britney Spears is and has always been a no-talent twit.

    She is a mental case who deserves to have those kids taken away FOREVER.

    Whoever the dumbass was that’s whining about the ambulance tech having the kid in the amulance…ARE YOU FRIGGIN kidding???? BRITNEY HAD THEM LOCKED IN A BATHROOM FOR THREE HOURS WITH HER WHILE SHE HAD HER BREAKDOWN! These kids have a half-witted nut-case for a mother….they are scarred.

    Keep those kids away from this trainwreck.

  15. katy

    To hello people:

    Ho are you and how do you know thats correct?

    Wy should we belive YOU and not…….another

  16. 2 Old 4 This

    leave her strapped to that gurney for “evaluation” for a few weeks until she has totally detoxed…..then go in for another evaluation.

    You can’t assess her mental state until she’s clean.
    Oh & for those of you blaming the pap, blogs, etc…for her kids seeing it???
    WTF??

    How about the other random single parents that loose their s*#@t in front of their kids because of drug dependancy?

    Happens all over the world – every day – without the aid of blogs, papparazzi, etc…

    Feel bad for the kids but place the blame squarely where it belongs – with their mother.

    She needs to get her act together for her children NOW

    I am surprised and saddened by this response and coverage of an obviously personal situation. I am so dissapointed in what this world is coming to and the lack of tolerance we all have for one another. Try and sympathize with your fellow humans, we are all imperfect and have our faults and just because you have a gift and became famous, it does not exclude you from this truth. She is a person, with feelings, fears, and issues. We all handle things differently and I can say I am not certain how I would react if I was in a custody battle with my ex husband, being followed by loads of people constantly, having people want to be my friends for the wrong reason and all of my dirty laundry being aired for the world to see and have opinions on. The media should be ashamed of themselves, as a country we are far too concerned with bottom line and we will exploit anyone and anything to make money. This is the catalyst of the deterioration of our morals and values, and we should all be ashamed of ourselves!!!!

    Yeah, I only have a little sympathy for her…and that’s only b/c she probably is severely mentally ill. But her illness was certainly exacerbated by her drug use and/or drinking.

    What did she really expect? She failed to appear 5 times and showed up extremely late when she did appear. She should have been arrested for contempt of court and allowed to detox in a jail cell. Realization when you are suffering the consequences of your actions isn’t actually realization…mostly b/c I don’t think she’s learning anything from this experience; everything will go back to the same when she’s released from the hospital (a la Lohan in rehab). She needs to be thoroughly medicated. Maybe then she’ll possess enough clarity to take responsibility for herself, her actions and her children.

  19. C'mon people

    I love how you’ve highlighted the picture of her “restraints”. Have you ever been loaded into an ambulance? Have you ever witnessed someone being loaded? They MUST strap down anyone that is being transported, no matter what the reason (sliced off finger, bump to the head, whatever). They’re legally required to protect their patients.

    Can you imagine being Britney Spears. Cameras and flashbulbs accompanying your every single move. How disconcerting that must be.

    If a court told me I had to hand over my kids to my ex-husband, that’s exactly what I would do. I wouldn’t hand them over to ANYONE ELSE, esp bulky security guards who may or may not know my children. Especially given the fact that she is so high profile and so rich. It wouldn’t be the first time the child of a rich and famous person has been kidnapped for ransom.

    Am I excusing Britney’s behaviour? Absolutely not. She needs help – and lots of it.

    I’ve always been jealous of those women who don’t eat when they are stressed. Me, it’s the opposite. If I were her, I would have gained 50 lbs. But, if I were her, I would not have had those particular children. What with being skeeved out by K-Fed, there would have been no way!!

  22. Five

    I feeling like screaming out like CC “LEAVE BRITNEY ALONE” I blame the people who where around during her early years Keeping people in bubbles is not healthy. She really needs someone to listen and talk to. It would be a good idea for the those fleabag paps to leave her alone for awhile too

    How many paps were at that ambulance door? I don’t really care if BS has any talent or not, she need help, she is frightened of losing her children, and she has behaved badly at times. Perhaps she will get what she need now and maybe then her children will get their mum back.
