Lord, ya'll. This is craaaaazy! Britney Spears has finally lost what was left of her marbles. CNN reports:
Pop star Britney Spears was taken to a hospital for tests to see if she was under the influence of alcohol or drugs and for a psychological evaluation after police were called to her home Thursday night to mediate a custody dispute, a police spokesman said.US Weekly screams:
Spears appeared to be conscious as she was rolled out of her Studio City home on a gurney about three hours after police and ambulances arrived there.
According to The Associated Press, officers were called to Spears' house around 8 p.m. to respond to a custodial dispute with ex-husband Kevin Federline over their sons, 2-year-old Sean Preston and 1-year-old Jayden James, Officer Jason Lee of the Los Angeles Police Department 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.
The children were returned to Federline, who has primary legal custody of the two.
Britney Spears went “completely psycho” as she was rushed to L.A.’s Cedars-Sinai Thursday, a source tells Usmagazine.com.
“They had to strap her down like a mental patient and she was going between laughing and hysterics,” the source adds, calling it “a total psychotic breakdown. She just went crazy."
(LAPD Jason Lee told City News Service that Spears appeared to be under the influence of an unknown substance at the time.)
Another Spears pal tells Us: "I guess she has good days and bad days - it's mental instability. All she has is to think of something sad and she goes crazy.”...
A hospital source tells Usmagazine.com that Spears has been designated a "special needs" patient, meaning "they have either overdosed or tried to commit suicide. So we go stay with these patients and monitor them constantly. We watch them so they don't hurt themselves and watch the people who come visit them to make sure they don't pass anything to them."
Here's the trashtastic video from US Weekly that is sure to be the Zapruder film of our lame generation:
WOW. That creepy smile on Britney's face in those photos of her in the ambulance are bone chilling! This all reminds me of that movie Frances, about the real-life actress Frances Farmer (played by Jessica Lange in the film) who was dragged away in a straight jacket and thrown into a loony bin against her will--except with no panties, of course.
