Celeb Caucus, Schmaucus—Britney’s in the HOSPITAL!
posted by January 4 at 9:04 AMon
Clearly furious at being upstaged by the hubbub in Iowa, Britney Spears ratcheted up the crazy last night, reportedly refusing to hand over her two children to primary parent Keven Federline at the scheduled time, instigating a three-hour standoff with police during which Britney “appeared to be under the influence of an unknown substance” and after which Britney was strapped to a gurney and hauled off in an ambulance. She’s reportedly being held in a Los Angeles hospital for psychological evaluation.
After that, the drama really begins, as allegations of Britney’s “substance”-fueled mini-kidnapping of her children are investigated by various authorities. At best, she’ll probably never enjoy unsurpervised visits with her kids again. At worst, she could face criminal charges.
In other news, Britney Spears is desperately mentally ill. Last year, I wrote at least twice that humanity is forbidden to stand around and watch as Britney’s sucked into the same pathetic public death-trap as Anna Nicole Smith. This year, I think Britney will be lucky to have so dignified a death. After last night’s ruckus, I can easily imagine her being fatally shot in a McDonald’s parking lot by a man in a police helicopter.
