Britney Spears is off to the hospital again – this time apparently for the whole 72-hour period on a mental hold, early Thursday morning.
There was a full on police motorcade going. At the house there were plainclothes officers, motorcycle police, ambulance crews, and even some of the brass! (ie: they didn’t want to get their asses sued.) She was taken to UCLA Medical Center.
A judge has signed a 5150 order, so she’s definitely going to stay the whole time period. TMZ was told that there’s a “good possibility” that it will be extended to 2 weeks.
Of course the parents are fighting with Sam Lufti, her “manager,” over who will take care of her. Good for them. It’s time to boost that leech out of her life.
Prior to her being transported, her new psychiatrist that her lawyers hired last week came to the house, and he’s the one who triggered the escort to the hospital and the mental hold.
As TMZ first reported, Britney has already been diagnosed with a bipolar disorder and has sporadically taken her medication.
OK – there is so much to snark here. Really. But I’m not going to. The bottom line is this… This woman is a mother, who cannot see her children due to her mental illness. Because of who she is, people have taken advantage of her, and really taken advantage of her mental illness. This has caused her to lose her mental stability, lose her children, lose her dignity…
Truly she’s dug a really really deep hole. I don’t know if she can make it out. Perhaps, now that her parents are here, she’ll really get the help she needs? I don’t know, I mean they did raise her after all. One could argue that that’s a good AND a bad thing.
But I do know one thing. Call KFed whatever you want – but he’s taken the steps he needed to to protect his children. He’s also kept his mouth shut about it. And you know what? He probably could have ripped into her like no one else during these months of watching her go down the drain. But he didn’t. Even his attorney, when speaking, basically only spoke of the legal manouverings. I can’t believe it.
I’ve gained respect for Kevin Federline.
