Police helicopters, ambulances, displaced tots, gurneys, and “unknown substances”— it was a scene taken straight out of a horror movie and Britney Spears was smack in the middle of it.
Ms. Meltdown has spiraled out of control yet again and is in the hospital this morning as a result.
While you were sleeping all heck broke out at the popwreck’s Studio City home last night and according to the latest news reports, Spears is still at L.A.’s Cedars-Sinai Medical Center hospital undergoing a mental evaluation.
The ugly incident began around 8 p.m. Pacific time when police responded to a call “about a custodial dispute regarding Britney Spears’s children.”
The mom to 2-year-old Sean Preston and 1-year-old Jayden James reportedly refused to relinquish custody to her ex-husband Kevin Federline and the cops were called in. According to police reports, “While officers were on the scene, they observed Ms. Spears under the influence of an unknown substance.”
Three hours, two ambulances, several fire trucks, multiple police cars and a police helicopter later Brit was taken out of her mansion on a gurney and loaded into a waiting ambulance.
TMZ.com is reporting that after Spears arrived at the hospital, her father, Jamie, and Federline – as well as both of her sons – were also spotted there. A source confirms that the boys had not suffered any injuries.
Police say according to a court order, Spears was scheduled to hand her sons over to Federline at 7 p.m. Thursday. A bodyguard for Federline arrived to pick up the boys at the designated time, but Spears refused to allow the boys to leave her home. Shortly there after police and a number of attorneys including Federline’s lawyer Mark Vincent Kaplan arrived at the singer’s house.
No word on why Britney was transported to the hospital via an ambulance. NBC News is reporting that the delusional former Mouseketeer was snapped smiling and grabbing at emergency responders as she was being loaded into the ambulance and upon her arrival at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center witnesses say Spears flipped off the waiting paparazzi.
