Brit-Brit Threw a Fit-Fit

Here are more pictures for you of Britney being loaded onto the ambulance that took her to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre late last night. For those of you just joining us, it all started when Britney refused to hand over her two boys to Kevin Federline and ended four hours later, with Britney seen here, in an ambulance on her way to a mental health evaluation. Reportedly, her breakdown is not the result of drugs, however her mental state has degraded so much over the past few weeks that she currently is being held under a “5150 hold,” which is code that means she’s possibly a danger to herself and others. In layman’s terms, girl gone crazy. According to an Us Weekly source, “They had to strap her down like a mental patient and she was going between laughing and hysterics.” Video of her being restrained is after the jump.

As for her legal situation, Kevin Federline’s attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan is headed to court to have Britney’s visitation rights with their children removed and I doubt he’ll experience much resistance at this point. Additionally, Britney’s legal representation had already quit on her, so God only knows who will be representing her.

    You know, she’s been in the news a lot and it’s obvious to anyone that pays attention that she was in serious need of some help.

    Since no one in her life appeared to want to take the bull by the horns (literally) and force her to seek it, she is now being forced to do just that by the authorities. Hopefully, she will be unable to find counsel that will work towards getting her released and will continue to be forced to get the help that she needs.

  2. GirlyGirl

    Girlfriend is a hot mess. With 2 babies in her custody it really isn’t funny. But would it be wrong to say she looks better in these pictures- out of her ever-lovin’ mind and tied to Nurse Ratchett- than she has screwing around with Lufti and Adnan-the-Leech pap.

    God bless her. Whackadoodles need love too.

  3. nicole

    it is about fucken time!!!!!

  4. Sarah

    Dear god, already! How out of control is this situation that an ambulance with it’s lights and sirens BLARING can’t even get the paparazzi to get OUT OF THE DAMN WAY?!?!?!?! The girl is having a meltdown! If reading these stories means the girl has to be followed and photographed in the middle of a mental breakdown like this, I’d rather see NO Britney stories at all.

  5. Croz

    The poor girl. I suppose it was only a matter of time until this happened. I wish her well and hope she gets the help she needs and can find her way out of the spotlight for a while. The real trainwreck here is the culture we are living in.

  6. Strapped to a gurney like the raving lunatic that she is!

    I hope they lock this chick in the looney bin for life. Tired of her whorin to the papz, killin little dogs, and snorting Starbucks. Tired of her bloated body, her meth face, and her mule-hair weave!

    Scene Spears bathroom:
    Britney: Sean Preston, I tolds you ta eat the blue pills! They’z fun! JJ, do you still have Mummy’s ciggies? Yes you do! I sed ya could have some, but Mummy wants one! Share JJ! Hey whutz that bangin sound? Sean Preston, call Sam and have him pick Mummy up more Frap, she’s feelin icky. JJ, give Mummy the white pills…I can’t stop that bangin noise!

  7. nica

    I watched the video of her in the ambulance. The attendants were trying to cover her up to possibly avoid any photos from the paps. She moved the cover/towel away.

    I truly believe that she loves the attention even that which is negative. I also believe she has some serious mental problems. Hopefully the court can intervene where no one in her life has been able to and get her the helps she needs. Although, a part of me believes she is beyond help.

  8. nastybugger

    nica, I noticed that too. she appears to be straining to peer around the sheet to make sure the paps got pics of her.

    and to silverlining…the reason nobody “took the bull by the horns” is that anyone who tried to help her or convince her that she needed help was cut out of her life.

    She wasn’t dependent on anyone for $, she didn’t qualify (in legalese) as a “danger to herself or others” (until last night), so she was free to live the life she wanted to. I speak from experience and I will tell you that it takes a LOT to have someone committed without their consent.

    Until she WAS a danger to herself or someone else, or until SHE wanted the help, people were pretty much powerless to do anything about it.

  9. Persistent Cat

    Nica, that’s why I came to comment. Is it me or is she straining to be seen?

  10. Applespice

    Looks like she wants to be seen to me.

    I really hope they get her the help she needs. I’m hearing now she may end up staying for 14 days in the hospital, but that’s from my local radio station not anywhere I can find online yet.

  11. Logan

    I don’t buy it. This bi-polar disorder theory is a catch-all diagnosis used as an excuse for SOME people to get away with being spoiled brats and party animals – this is just a big ol’ temper tantrum ’cause Brit-Brit didn’t get her own way. She wanted her babies to sleep overnight, and was told NO! Next came the huge ass hissy fit, cops and all…..what a surprise…..NOT!

  12. LRM216

    I am not now, nor have I ever been a “Britney” fan. I am too old for that, but I pray for her that this be her bottom and with proper medical help, she can make her way back to sanity. The poor lost soul has had no one to DEMAND that something be done regarding her downward spiral. Her parents could have had her court-ordered for evaluation long before this. They have taken the easy way out by saying she wouldn’t cooperate. What the hell insane person cooperates????? Shame on them both.

  15. Hmmm

    She has been finally been driven Maddd!!!! Mad I tell you!!!

    She will never be the same, she is to messed up!!!

  16. nastybugger

    actually, LRM216, her parents would have had no authority to have her evaluated. they are not her legal guardians, she’s not underage, and (as I said above) she was not legally a danger to herself or others (until last night), which is the criteria for commitment/evaluation.

    if she didn’t cooperate, they had no way to do it against her wishes.

  17. PinkWeenie

    I agree LRM216… her parents should have stepped in long before this. It doesn’t matter that Britney is an adult, or if she is truly mentally whacked or just playing the spoiled brat. They should have done something, anything… had her kidnapped by those mercenary types that snatch people out of cults, and taken far far away and got her the help she needs.

  18. RumerDennis

    “if she didn’t cooperate, they had no way to do it against her wishes.”

    Sure they did. And should have.

  19. Mom 2 3

    This is THE best publicity she could have ever hoped for.
    Unfortunately it’s at a dear price.
    “PinkWeenie” I agree with you on the spoiled brat part. This is a little girl in a woman’s body, playing house. Always has been, always will be.
    She is just perpetuating the cycle in which she was raised.
    Drugs and alcohol only exaggerate her already drama-filled life.
    Mental illness? Sure, why not.
    Maybe she has something worse, I don’t know. She never sticks with any one treatment plan to find out. But it is clear on one thing.
    IF this girl were serious about getting help. She would LEAVE L.A., get herself some REAL therapy and turn her life around so she can be a real mother to her boys and live the life she was meant to live.
    L.A. is just a cesspool of vultures and bloodsuckers. The majority of people she surrounds herself with (INCLUDING her own mother) just want to bleed her dry…$$$$$$$.
    “Nastybugger”, you’re right, she’s an adult and all the pleading and begging and threatening won’t make her do a thing unless she wants to! Besides it’s easier for her to keep running away rather than face her demons.
    Until now.
    Now she’s messing with court orders and judges.
    Hopefully now the legal system won’t let her children down…even if it means living with K-Fed, who, on the surface, appears to be the more stable one here. Let’s hope he doesn’t disappoint.

  20. Jenn

    Most mentally unstable people don’t cooperate with anyone and they still get help. Their relatives call 911 and get them evaluated. They could have done something. Kevin could have done something more to show he gave a crap too. No one cares about this girl. They just care about her money. I feel sad for her.

  21. Jenn

    Easy for you to say Mom23. You’re probably neither mentally sick nor chemically addicted.

    So easy to point fingers when it isn’t you, isn’t it?

  22. T-Bone

    I agree, Jenn.

  23. nastybugger

    how many of you who are saying “they could have done something” have ever been in a situation where you KNOW someone needed psychiatric help but wouldn’t seek it themselves?

    I have. LEGALLY, there is NOTHING you can do to get them committed, evaluated, or on meds. THEY HAVE TO DO IT THEMSELVES, or at least agree to it. Unless the are a danger to themselves or others.

    so, rumerdennis and others, please explain to me what exactly her parents could have done? LEGALLY. Not “having her kidnapped by mercernaries”, but something that they legally could have done. You can call 911 until your fingers fall off, but if they aren’t hurting themselves or someone else, the cops/EMTs can’t do anything.

  24. Sad Cupcake

    I agree that it looks like she wants to be seen. But this is nothing new… Britney’s so disturbed that she seeks attention when she’s at her absolute nastiest and most deluded. It IS really sad. Who would have predicted such a fall a few years back, when she was a cute blonde girl, dating Justin Timberlake?

  25. joan durtz

    That bitch is a mess. Why doesn’t the press stop covering her already. Enough is enough. I guess everyone wants to see her die on camera. She is pathetic.

  26. Jenn,
    Shut up. You’re just as judgemental as the rest of the people on this site. Shut your pie hole.

    TO HELL WITH SHITNEY SPEARS.

  27. RumerDennis

    nastybugger: I didn’t say LEGALLY. If you truly care about someone who is really in trouble, you do what you have to do… LEGALLY or not. Her parents should have, they didn’t, they must take some blame and should feel much shame.

    And no, I haven’t “been there.” I don’t need to have “been there” to know what I would do.

  28. Amber

    RumerDennis, agreed.

    You don’t have to be in a situation to know exactly what you would do. If she were my daughter, she would have gotten her ass WHOOPED at the great age of 23, when she started acting like an asshole. My parents WOULD have come all the way from Los Angeles to Nashville, just to drag my ass back home and shove God and medication down my throat. Why? Because my parents love me. Legal or not, my parents would have NEVER let me fall down the road that Britney did. My mother would have let herself be led away by police before she let me flash my vagina to the public.

    Her parents ARE responsible, and they SHOULD be very ashamed of themselves. God help Jamie-Lynn’s baby.

  29. T-Bone

    Chronologically, Britney is an adult. Mentally, she’s about 16 years old. We see this a lot with child stars. They simply don’t have the tools to function like the rest of us, because they haven’t gone through the same things. We all learn to deal with things like rejection, failure, having no money, having to work our butts off to make a living, and how to relate to other people, in general. Child stars don’t always learn these things. Put that on top of something like bipolar and/or chemical addiction and it’s a recipe for disaster. Everyone failed this girl, from her father to her mother to KFED to herself. And I just hope she gets strong enough to pull herself up and pull it together.

  30. pop psychologist

    The whole debate about what people “should” have done or “could” have done is really a bit ridiculous considering that we’re talking about a family headed by a matriarch that allowed her young, adolescent daughter to get whored out and turned into a hyper-sexualized object in a way that was arguably unprecedented. I mean, anyone who saw Britney Spears’ first music video would have been idiotic to think that girl was going to mature into a healthy, whole human being.
    And yeah…Spears probably did want to be seen, since she seems to be suffering from some kind of dissociative or personality disorder, and probably only exists, to herself, as reflected by the flashbulbs. She’s watching this whole absurd and tragic melodrama play out like the rest of us. She seems to be disconnected from herself and reality. Hopefully, she will receive the psychological treatment that she needs in order to grow into some semblance of a healthy person.

  32. I actually feel bad for Britney. I know she has really gone off the deep end, and at times it seems she’s trying to get attention, but this is horrible. That video with the paparazzi chasing down her ambulance, jumping in front of it and everything…I can’t believe people would do that. What kind of world do we live in where it’s ok to drive someone to a mental breakdown and then enjoy and make money off of their problems? Maybe she’s crazy, maybe she did it to herself, I don’t know what her problem is…but give the girl a break.

  33. fedup

    the media needs to leave her alone!!!! there are a lot of messed up women in america, why do we have to keep hearing about this one? she has problems, she has issues but please, the press really needs to let her be. quite sick of hearing about it. not interested. lets move on to something worth reporting.Leave the poor kid alone.its just a sad situation.

  36. p-town

    It appears as if the only thing left for her to do is die. I wouldn’t wish it on her, of course, but it seems like the clock is ticking.

    Maybe she’ll have an epiphany, or something, and then die. Who knows with her anymore?

  37. BritneyForever

    Would you all just leave her the fuck alone. If she’s going to get better and get her kids back, she doesn’t need all of this.

  38. BritneyForever

  39. Anaconda

    I personally feel sad for her…and her children. I never thought I would say that because I am not a Britney fan. I couldn’t believe she chose to, basically, steal a pregnant woman’s man (who obviously wasn’t worth a sh*t and used her for her money and fame), marry him and have 2 children with him,etc,etc. She doesn’t know what boundries are because she was never taught any. She was never taught morals, or much of anything, except how to sell her sexuality. She has no tools to know how to make good decisions or to take care of herself. She can’t seem to live without the media around her. The sad thing is that is one of the main things she needs is to be able to live her life without everyone following her around and scrutinizing her every move. Don’t you think all these things she’s done in the last couple of years knowing she would be plastered on the cover of every mag and tv trash show are a cry for help…or something. I sincerely hope she can get herself together and have a semi-normal life and can grow up (she really is mentally like a young girl still) and be a good mother to her children. And I don’t think Kevin Federline is good for anything. His character speaks for itself! Someone who would leave his pregnant woman for somebody else because it seemed like a free ride is a piece of sh*t and always will be. Those children don’t need to learn to be anything like him. For a long time I thought Britney and Kevin deserved each other, but I think she’s lost her mind due to the crap he put her through. I think she really was fooled into believing Kevin was in love with her. And her being a little slow, realized as time passed that he was only in it for the money and what he could take from her. There is nothing harder than realizing the person you love, doesn’t really love you back. Karma does bite you in the ass sometimes and she should have known not to go near him in the first place…and he should have known that you don’t even look at another woman when you already have a pregnant woman who already gave birth to your child. With morals like theirs, this is going to be one f*cked up world!

  40. Bolo

    britney is a crazy loud b *tch but id still bury da bone in’r

  41. gail

    Nastybugger is totally right….even at the age of 12 (in Florida) i could NOT get my daughter committed unless she agreed to it! She ended up being Baker acted several times, but it’s the follow up that really makes or breaks. You cannot force a mentally ill person to take the meds that can save them. Yes, been there, done that. Britney has what’s called “dual diagnosis”, which is mental disorder combined with drug abuse. She shows all the signs of being bipolar, plus God knows what substances she’s tried to self-medicate with. I’m just surprised her kids weren’t removed long ago! If an adult who is not literally threatening someone’s or her own life wants to be crazy, they have that right. That’s America folks.

  42. nastybugger

    thank you for your support on this issue gail. a lot of posters are saying they “know exactly what they’d do” when, in actuality, you have NO idea WHAT you’d do until you are actually IN that situation. I notice while rumerdennis said they know what’d they’d do, they didn’t say what it was.

    and, unfortunately, Amber, Britney has enough security that no one, not even her parents, could have taken her somewhere against her will. Britney pays her security and her bodyguards, and if she told them to keep her parents away, they would.

    I will agree with both of you, however, that her parents should have intervened way before it got to this point. Because her parents, or anyone else for that matter, never told her “no”, she never had any reason to see them as any type of authority figure. She was living with Justin Timberlake by the time she was 18. That was just one indication that her parents never set limits.

  43. Studying Psychology at A University

    hm…
    I agree, with gail and nastybugger about the whole “you have to be a danger to yourself or others to be committed.” However, it isn’t that hard to convince a doctor that a person is a danger, and it isn’t that hard to have someone committed (trust me, I know). I don’t know much about the whole Brittney situation, on whether or not she is mentally ill, a camera whore, a drug addict or whatever, but I do know that they can get you mental health treatment for even things such as a drug problem (most behavioral health facilities cater to drug problems, as well as mental problems and dual diagnosis’) so, people could have tried just a *lil* bit harder to get her committed if she was spiraling down so fast, even if she was unwilling.
    P.S. Gail, I don’t know about the laws in FL, but I do know that in most states, if you are under the age of 18 (sometimes 16) a parent can force a child to do WHATEVER they deem necessary, i.e. get mental health treatment. Furthermore, if it is inpatient treatment if you are under the age of 18 the doctors there can force a child to take medicine (while there in inpatient, only, of course) if they are refusing; I know because its been done to me before dozens of time (in fact, I’ve been hospitalized for the sole fact I was refusing medication at home).

  44. anon123

    This is my first time on this site and I have to tell all of you… GET A LIFE!! Please! There is too much to life than talking about someone who doesn’t know like as if he/she was your best friend. Jeez! I visited site out of shear boredom. I’m on duty in the Middle East and there isn’t much going on where I’m at. I heard about this whole Britney Spears thing and thought it would be a hoot to check it out. Then I read all of the posts. You guys… Wow! Some of you sound like Jerry Springer guests. The others sound like the Jerry Springer audience members. Realize that Britney Spears, or any other celebrity, doesn’t know who you are nor does she care to know who you are. You are a consumer, a paycheck, some babbling fool at a concert that wants something from her. I’m sure that if you put as much effort into analyzing your own life as much as what you have on silly celebrities’ lives, you wouldn’t be on this site. That is unless you are as bored as I am.
