Britney's Massive Meltdown - Nudity, Drugs, Sex, (and Pictures)
The night that Britney Spears locked herself in her bathroom with her two young sons and refused to come out was a night that she made headlines quite literally around the globe. Viewers worldwide were subjected to images of an apparently cheery Britney being wheeled out to a waiting ambulance, and subsequently rushed off to Cedars Sinai hospital.
But what exactly happened that night, and why? At first, reports were sketchy and contradictory. Some claimed that she was under the influence of drugs, but others soon testified that she was completely clean and had passed all her drug tests.
It would appear that Britney is clean, for illicit drugs anyway. However, according to her personal assistant, Britney is in the habit of popping prescription pills, such as Prozac, when the mood takes her. This writer questions whether or not someone can be determined to be clean merely because it is not illegal drugs that are clouding their mind.
Other voices soon weighed in on the night in question as well, and several law enforcement officers spoke to the agency TMZ, revealing some shocking facts about the hostage drama and how it went down. According to their accounts, when Britney left the bathroom, she was wearing naught but a pair of panties. This did not stop her from giving the officers a piece of her mind, as she was allegedly quite displeased to find them cluttering up her home.
Britney was talked down by the authorities, and soon agreed to put some clothes on. Unfortunately, she apparently chose to don a see through nightgown, which rather defeated the purpose of the exercise. Britney may be quite crazy, but she certainly seems to have enough of her wits about her to be contrary to most all instructions.
Fortunately, her children were not harmed in the incident, and they were returned to their father's care, whilst visitation was temporarily terminated, and full custody awarded for the time being to Kevin Federline.
Taken to Cedars Sinai, Britney was held under observation for 48 hours, at the end of which period, she was legally allowed to discharge herself. She did so, amidst the meddling interference of Dr Phil McGraw, who allegedly blindsided her in her hospital room, causing her to throw yet another of her Britney style fits. Dr Phil later spoke about his extreme concern for Britney, and claimed that they had spoken for an hour before walking her to her car. In actual fact, he had spoken to Britney for all of 15 minutes, unwillingly at that, and though he may have trailed her out to her car, she certainly wasn't aware of him, according to sources.
The Spears family later came out and said that they were upset and felt betrayed by Dr Phil's attempts to wrangle their daughter onto his show, and canceled their appearances. Dr. Phil then announced that he would not be airing his Britney Spears special, as the issue was too intense. Also, one might propose that he didn't feel like facing a large lawsuit.
In the meantime, Britney rushed into the arms of her married paparazzi lover, Adnan Ghalib, and the two set about having a fine time together. Adnan tried shopping naked pictures he had taken of Britney for the princely sum of one million dollars, but found that it turned out to be a rather hard sell indeed. He eventually sold them to an Australian magazine for $57,000.
Here ends Part One.
