Britney Hospitalised Again For Being A Danger To Herself

Written by admin. Posted in Personal Issues

Britney Spears was hospitalized at UCLA Medical Center for a psychiatric hold early Thursday morning, after being transported by ambulance from her Studio City home around 1 a.m.

An LAPD source tells PEOPLE: “Spears was escorted by police and is on her way to get help.”

The singer, 26, was transported to UCLA for treatment and evaluation during a 72-hour emergency hold, known as a 5150.

“She went willingly. It was like something in her heart was telling her she should go. She knew something was wrong,” confidant Sam Lutfi tells PEOPLE.

Police or a mental health professional can request one if a person is deemed to be a danger to herself or others. (Spears was held at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on such an order earlier this month, following her Jan. 3 custody standoff with police.)

Spears’s mother, Lynne – who’s in the midst of a tense reunion with her daughter – friend Alli Sims and Lutfi were all inside the gated mansion when police and the fire department arrived.

What brought on the hospitalization? “She was driving around her neighborhood like a mad-woman,” says a Spears family source. “Britney has been prescribed medication which she refuses to take. This is just another sad, sad evening.”

Lutfi and Spears’s father, Jamie, arrived at the hospital shortly after the singer. Her mother was later spotted leaving the Summit home with Spears’s photographer beau, Adnan Ghalib, in the backseat.

Earlier in the night, Internet rumors claimed that the singer had attempted suicide, but Lutfi and Sims both denied those claims to PEOPLE.

Since the January standoff, Spears has been stripped of visitation rights for her two sons Preston, 2, and Jayden, 1. Two sources have said she suffers from a psychological disease, with one source saying, “there is no question she is bipolar… she’s had manic episodes for years.”

As last night’s incident unfolded, a Spears source told PEOPLE simply, “Pray, please.”

    The title of this needs to be changed to Britney being a danger to herself and OTHERS. She was actually driving around near a cliff yesterday and had not slept since SATURDAY. Lutfi needs to have his ass kicked to the curb, I am so SICK of hearing about him and seeing his lying, conniving face. Hopefully they won’t let Britney leave the hospital’s care until she has enough medication onboard so she won’t relapse again. It would be wonderful if she could get well, do an interview, and admit her mistakes. THAT would turn her life around.

    I pushed da wrong button in my other statement so I didn’t finish. But i wuz sayin da she bring back everybody dat wuz wit her when she achevied fame. They really cared about her. I think it will help her in life, wit her kids and wit her career. They all had a positive influence on her and I think it would be tter if they were back. O bring back her original manager and her assistant felicia. Not sam, I don’t even kno who da fuck he is. He look like someone dat wuz found on da street…. LOSER!!!!!

    I am suprised dat she didn’t kill anybody or herself. Not sleepin 4 (3) days is like takin medication dat makes u drowsy and then takin yo ass out 2 drive WUT DA FUCK…. I think dat if da psychiatrist wasn’t in her life she would have not gone on her own… Good 4 her in makin a good choice 4 once!!!! I don’t think brit is sucidual, if she wuz she would be dead by now she would have done it already…. I hope they make her stay the whole 14 days after da 3 day evaluation!!!!!!!!!!

    I’m glad to see she is gettin help, i’m sure her parents had somethin to do with this, i hope that it’s true that she went willingly, cuz then it would seem that she knows she needs the help and hopefully she will cooperate and then be on her way to recover from this, and then soon after that be on her way to gettin custody of her kids back. LOVE YA BRIT!!!!!!!! Stay strong honey and please get better, u’r in my prayers!!
