Looks like Britney Spears might have finally cracked.
Britney Spears was admitted to Cedars Sinai hospital in L.A. early this morning following a dramatic evening in which cops were called to her home after she refused to hand her two sons back to her ex-husband Kevin Federline.
The troubled 26-year-old is on a 72-hour hold at the hospital, reportedly under suicide watch. She is getting a psychiatric evaluation and is being drug tested.
The trouble began last night when K-Fed’s bodyguard arrived at Britney’s Beverly Hills home to collect Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1. She refused to let them leave and cops were called to the house. A source said that Britney was “hysterical and just wanted to keep the kids overnight.” Additionally, police reportedly noted that Britney was “under the influence of an unknown substance.”
K-Fed’s lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, and Britney’s divorce attorney, Anne Kiley, were called to the home in an effort to resolve the stand-off.
After a tense time, during which cops threatened to arrest her if she didn’t hand over the kids, Kiley drove Sean Preston to Kevin’s house, while Jayden was rushed to the hospital. Sources tell PageSix.com that Jayden is “going to be fine.”
Britney was then transported to Cedars Sinai in an ambulance and was seen being transported into the hospital on a stretcher, looking somewhat dazed and confused, with her legs in restraints.
Our well-placed source says that the stress and mental anguish of the ongoing custody battle has caused the pop star to “lose a tremendous amount of weight in the past several weeks.”
Earlier yesterday, Britney finally showed up for her deposition in the custody case, albeit nearly two hours late. Wearing a hot pink minidress with a plunging back, she was deposed for a total of 13 minutes.
PerezHilton.com is reporting that K-Fed’s lawyer is likely to go to court this morning to ask for an ex-parte hearing in which she could lose custody of the kids.
Britney’s father, Jamie, is at the hospital with Britney, as is her pal Sam Lufti, but there is no sign of her mother, Lynne.
