In Touch Weekly has a long, detailed story about Britney Spears having yet another breakdown/meltdown, this time on Mother’s Day. Britney and her boyfriend Jason Trawick had made arrangements (with the help of Jamie Spears) for Britney and her sons to go to Disneyland, have a private audience with Mickey Mouse, sit front-row for a fireworks display and generally get VIP treatment everywhere. But everything went to hell.
When they checked into the Disneyland Hotel, it looked like Britney and Jason has just had an argument. With the boys in another room with their nannies, Britney locked herself into her hotel room.
“She started out crying hysterically and refused to go out,” an insider shares. “Jason and the boys were left sitting with the nanny all day. They never got to meet Mickey Mouse.”
That night, things went from bad to worse when Britney ordered scissors sent to her room and began cutting off her hair. The insider says: “When the cleaners came to the room, so much hair had been flushed down the toilet, it was blocked.”
Sadly, strange scenes like that one are becoming more and more typical. On May 1, she paid a local tattoo artist $5,000 to ink a red crown on her butt, a pal shares, to show “she’s the ruler of her life.” It hasn’t helped.
Britney’s relationship with Jason is more tumultuous than ever, and even her dad has been away lately.
“Jamie’s spent the last two weeks in Louisiana and only checks in with Britney by phone… he is basically relying on her staff to look after her.” Feeling unloved, Britney has begun acting out.
“If things keep going the way they are, she is headed for something very bad.”

Again. She is headed for something very bad again. On one side, I will say again, I feel for Britney because I believe she has some very genuine mental/emotional/psychological problems. On the other side, I want her to know herself well enough to get help, and to really put in the effort to be healthy and put her sons’ interests ahead of her own. With that story of her cutting off her hair in the bathroom, all I thought was “What a petty, self-absorbed little drama queen.” But I’m open to the possibility that she could have seriously been having a breakdown. Ugh… I wonder if it would help if people stopped treating her with kid gloves? I mean, if you didn’t know she was mentally ill, and she locked herself in a room and ordered scissors, wouldn’t you just call the cops? Maybe that’s what they should do next time.
Also: I think the source for this story must be either one of Britney’s bodyguards or one of her sons’ nannies. It’s so detailed, and it seems true, like there was a genuine eyewitness.
