BREAKING NEWS: Britney Spears Finally Being Committed?

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!
