Britney Spears has been committed again on mental evaluation hold (5150 psychiatric hold) for the second time in less than a month. TMZ has exhausting coverage of this latest Britney drama. Early Thursday morning, Spears, was escorted via ambulance, and police motorcycle detail to the UCLA Medical Center.
Britney’s shrink called the cops and set everything in motion. The psychiatrist was shocked at the wreckless behavior shown by Spears the day before with the high speed chase she was involved in. Cops referred to Spears as ‘the package’ in transporting her to the hospital.
Pseudo cousin Alli Sims was all smiles upon arriving at the hospital. Britney’s dad, Jamie Spears, was polite in asking the media to respect his privacy during this difficult time. Her manager, Sam Lufti, the one who supposedly arranged the intervention, arrived at the hospital to check on his welfare check. Her mom, Lynne Spears, and brother, Bryan Spears, have also arrived.
Brit went willingly to the hospital upon hearing the news from her shrink. If Spears refuses medicine while under the 5150 hold then the psychiatrist is likely to go to court and ask a judge to hold her for an additional 14 days.
Lufti, not Brit’s parents, was making the medial decisions regarding Spears’ health initially. She had her lawyers draw up papers last month blocking her parents from making medical decisions for her. If she signs a Power of Attorney they can then make medical decisions for her. Spears parents appear to have gained temporary control to make medical decisions for Spears, but this could change until a judge grants them that right legally.
