Britney Spears hospitalized after standoff

January 4th, 2008 // 104 Comments

Britney Spears was strapped to a gurney and taken from her home after a custody standoff with the police and local fire department. The police are saying Britney was under the influence of an unknown substance when she refused to allow her children to leave her house with Kevin Federline’s bodyguard. The Associated Press reports:

Officers were called to Spears’ house around 8 p.m. to respond to the custody dispute with ex-husband Kevin Federline over their sons, 2-year-old Sean Preston and 1-year-old Jayden James, Lee said.
By about 10:30 p.m., six police cars, two ambulances and a fire truck had entered the gated-community that includes Spears’ house. Several police cars were seen in the area earlier in the night.
Spears turned over the children around 10:50 p.m., Lee said.

TMZ is reporting that Kevin’s lawyers are meeting with the judge this morning to strip Britney of her visitation rights. She is currently on “5150 hold” at Cedars-Sinai hospital which means there is evidence that Britney is a danger to herself and others.

UPDATE: Us Magazine has a time line of Britney’s meltdown. She’s being treated at the hospital as a “special needs” patient which indicates indicates either an overdose or suicide attempt.

    as much as I don,t care about her, I’m starting to feel bad for her…life is a bitch sometimes and we all know that, if you irritate the bitch, she’ll come back stronger!!!

  4. Eamon

    where’s your usual snarky remarks? That’s why I come here dammit!

  5. Victoria

    It’s about time! WTF were they waiting for?

  6. noneyobeezwax

    i wonder what odds vegas has on her killing herself this year? i think that may be a pretty safe bet. she’s definitely off to a promising start.

  7. Thomas

    I’d hit it… with a big cartoon hammer so she’d have pretty cartoon birdies circling her head to match the look on her face.

  8. Sorry to hear this. In fact, I have read the new at another coummity, which is hot dating and chating for bisexual. They alwasy send news ahead of time.

  9. latty

    I can definitely say this comes as no surprise to ANYONE. Crazy bitch.

  10. bsh10984

    Sounds like the kids got a hold of her crayons

  11. James

    Poor girl. You can see her unravelling and it’s so sad.

  12. latty

    I think our first clue to something big happening was the story “Britney NOT completely screwed”.

  13. Dude

    Fuck you Amanda and your bullshit spam. At least you could learn how to write a sentence properly. Get the fuck off this site and quit pushing your bullshit dating sites.

  14. #1 hater

    That’s so hot…….

  15. Ang

    I can’t believe the Judge has given her so many chances. Any visitation rights she has should be taken from her.
    She’s a nut case.

  16. Auntie Kryst

    Fuck yeah, about time this story popped up. It’s official now, the crazy train is about to derail!

    I have to admit though, a bit overkill on the response to the call; 6 cop cars and a firetruck?

  17. FACE

    Why doesnt she just kill herself and spare us all the stupid bullshit?

  18. HEE

    The next Anna Nicole Smith story!
    NEXT: who are the real fathers of the baby’s? comming soon……

    As much as I dislike Britney Spears, I think she is unravelling fast and will do harm to herself or her kids if she doesn’t get help. This is really bad. My heart aches for her poor kids. They need a warm, loving and stable home. Not this mess. And the paparazzi need to go away. That’s not a normal way to grow up. Poor kids.

  21. Conscience Found

    pray for brit ok?

  22. gotmilk?

    question – don’t people who are “under the influence” get hauled in to jail? this bitch gets brought to the damn hospital! and why such a huge police response? i’m sure stuff like this happens all the time in trailer parks and MAYBE the cops show up. pffft!

    i say let nature take its course. let the dumb whore kill herself.

  23. D. Richards (Saint.)

    Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha! Yes! I woke up this morning so uptight and with hardly any purpose at all. I didn’t want to talk to fuckign anybody, but now, I wanna dance in the street and give out religious pamplets. Hitler was correct.

    Britney had an actual break-down! This is great news, because this means she’s one step closer to ending her life. Praise Jesus!

    I can’t wait for the toxicology findings to come out. You know it’s gonna be fucking gnarly!

  24. ScottL

    This is starting to be not funny anymore

    *Sits back, makes some popcorn and gets ready to watchi this trainwreck*

    Oh, and #1, You’re a loser.

  26. MindRiot

    what took so damn long.

  27. D. Richards (Scumbag.)

    #21? Pray for ‘brit’? Are you serious?! I’m gonna pray to lunch.

  28. heidi

    How dare she take drugs while watching her kids. She has NO BUSINESS taking care of them. How selfish!!!

    FINALLY, bad things happening to BAD people.

    Karma is a bitch Britney, you talentless, ugly, psycho hillbilly.

  30. Trauma Man

    I worked for a Regional Trauma Center for several years with anything and everything you can imagine… so while it’s certainly plausible that Britney is in for a suicide attempt or drug overdose, a ‘Special Needs’ status is ALWAYS given to patients that are celebrity OR just request to remain anonymous. Most all hospital computer systems only have 2 patient status — private and non-private. Rape victims and those admitted on a police hold are also automatically given ‘Special Need’…

    Nevertheless, Britney is nuts. You can only tread water so long after going off the deep end.

  31. Danielle

    The Exorcist…thier making a sequel or something??

  32. Jeezy

    Don’t feel bad for her. Feel bad for her kids. She brought this all upon herself. She’s not some innocent victim, she’s a rich spoiled brat.

  33. Men in White Coats

    I hope the next picture we see of Britney is one of her running around naked wearing only a straight jacket. What a Nut.

  34. she really is crazy

    ah, she looks really crazy in this picture ( her crazy fan’s website)

  35. fergernauster

    This individual may have been doomed from the get-go. Severe mental instability runs in her family and her mummy pimped her out (and her now-knocked-up teenage sis) to the masses for $$.

    Also, she is not overly bright, which has no doubt resulted in some very poor choices in her young life.

    The ending to this story might be very tragic, but I pray it is not.

    Bye bye for now…

  36. mrs.t

    I can’t believe this, but I actually have to look away from this particular wreck of a woman. I came here to witness the horror, and it’s so depressing that I can’t look. At least there’s no shorn-beaver-upskirt of her being hauled into the ambulance….yet.

  37. eve

    See more on X17, this time they are up to date!!!

    Honey, is there any place that you would like to beat, I know this coffee shop on 52th Street…………………………………..

  40. p0nk

    now that she’s “special needs”, does that mean she can ride the short bus?

    how can anybody feel sorry for this asshat? she’s a product of her own deliberate choices.

    Hey Amanda:

    Hi there, I’m a loser with no life. I’m paid $3.50 per hour to post idiotic drivel, directing you to some lame dating website that takes your money and gives you nothing in return. I have no job, so I sit around all day and post this garbage on as many websites as I can under many different aliases. I don’t have any friends, so I must rely on these moronic posts to make myself feel better about myself. My mother hates me and dropped me on my head as a child. You can find me at I’
    I heard Jamie Lynn Spears met her older man, I mean match, at this site.

  42. Superevil

    Site admin needs to get off his fucking ass a do something about this lame as spam.

  43. Look at those EYEBALLZ jesus!

  44. whatever

    Hey amanda…I feel bad about this to. I saw the news on a site you might want to check out,

  45. lala

    gotmilk, no when u are only takin to jail if u are under the innluence and commit a crime or are picked up by the police. if ur under the influence and a danger to urself as in suicidal, u go to the mental hospital. happened to me….

    anyways, i bet she’s on ice. i’ve known some methheads back in the day and they acted like this crazy bitch.

  46. whatever

    What does she make again? $700k a month?

    She’s young and therefore has both money and (should have) her health. She fucked herself up. This is actually so sad that part of me hopes she find a way to clean up. But on the other hand I’m pissed this spoiled little bitch has thrown her life away while others struggle and suffer.

    Another site where you can post comments about this story is

  47. Political Groupie

    Well, at least Her Supreme Craziness is a lot more interesting than hearing/reading about the political nuts in Iowa.

    Too bad she didn’t kill herself like the rest of these narcissistic bleach blond celebrities.

  48. dr.pepper

    I don’t really agree 32.
    Would you go to a mental ward of a hospital and look at craziescrying and pulling out their hair with contempt saying ” they brought this on themselves” maybe some of them were once rich. look at britney’s appearance for the last three years. she is obviously not overly self-indulgent with her richness( compared to others that are that rich). she eats taco bell and refuses makeup artists and hair stylists. she does not take tropical vacations, she drives to starbucks. she does not spoil herself ( with HER money).

    at this point, she IS crazy and needs a lot of help. I kind of hope one day she will completely recover and tell us exactly when and why she went crazy.
    but she will prob dite this year.
