Britney Spears Rehab Update


Since checking into rehab, it looks like perhaps Britney Spears will be able to enjoy life out of the public eye somewhat–but not completely. TMZ reports that paparazzi were quick to mobilize themselves to make sure that just because Britney is tucked away in rehab, doesn’t mean they’re going to hang up their cameras and call it a day. A group of photogs rounded themselves up Tuesday evening and jumped in a helicopter at the Santa Monica airport with the sole mission of photographing Spears while at the “Promises” treatment center in Malibu. Even going so far as taking off the doors from the helicopter to keep anything from obstructing their view, these dudes clearly mean business.

ExtraTV spills the beans on what events may have led up to Britney’s crazy weekend that resulted in her shaving her head and checking into rehab yesterday.

According to a stunning new report in OK magazine, Kevin Federline was at the pop star’s Malibu mansion on Friday when she arrived home from rehab, and a blowout between the exes broke out.

“They had a huge argument,” revealed OK’s Rob Shuter. “Kevin threatened Britney that he was going to have people test her hair to find out exactly what she’s been up to. She was so scared. That was what made her have her head shaved.”

Friday night, after her trip to the hair salon, Britney hit the Mondrian Hotel on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood. She wore an electric blue wig, but had no means of payment on her person and was denied a room. Confused and upset, she was later spotted at the hotel’s pool, shaving her legs while crying.

And on a random little side note, an American Hockey League team have formulated a transparent publicity stunt offered to Britney the opportunity to enjoy a weekend away in Syracuse, New York. The offer is for an all expenses paid trip and was made by the The Syracuse Crunch hockey team, according to Sports Illustrated.

The Crunch is also offering any woman who shaves her head a free ticket to their Feb. 24 game against the Manitoba Moose. If Spears accepts the Crunch’s invitation, each member of the club’s front office staff will also shave their heads.

Hmm…well, my boyfriend’s into hockey. Maybe if I show up with a shaved head, doing my best “Toxic” moves, I can figure out for a way for me and The Crunch to mutually exploit one another.
