Britney Spears checked into rehab on the Caribbean island of Antigua, but she couldn’t hack it and got the hell out less than 24 hours later.
Then she flew back, coach, from Miami to her home in LA. She then went out to a hair salon where she demanded that a hairdresser shave her head. When he refused to do the deed, Britney snatched the clippers and did it herself. (x17 has the pictures of Britney shaving her head, and I’ve e-mailed them about purchasing the rights to publish them here. Everyone else is putting up the watermarked versions, but they are quite particular about it and say it’s illegal.)
Bald Britney then went from the hair salon to a Sherman Oaks tattoo parlor, where she paid $80 for a new tattoo of a cross on her hip and some lips on her wrist. She freaked out at the pain though, and was said to be moving around a lot in the chair while she was getting inked. There was a huge crowd outside the tattoo parlor with paparazzi and people vying for a glimpse of the newly-shorn Britney. LAPD had to do crowd control outside as people watched Britney getting tattooed.
When asked why she shaved her head, Britney said “I don’t want anyone touching me. I’m tired of everybody touching me.”
Employees at the tattoo parlor said it was clear she was “totally freaking out” and that she was “on the verge of a nervous breakdown.”
What I want to know is, if she was having trouble and didn’t want to go to rehab, couldn’t she have stayed in Antigua at a nice resort there?
Is she on some heavy drugs that are making her freak out and act all paranoid and self-destructive? Does she have a new nanny yet, and where’s her mother?
