Britney rape rumor

There’s a rumor going around that Britney was raped “at a club,” which prompted her to shave her head. Commentors on aggregate news site Oh No They Didn’t are gossiping about it.

There are several reasons for this story:

1. Someone reported on Oh No They Didn’t that their “uncle” works at Cedars Sinai Medical Center and that Britney was checked out at the emergency room there and released. They spelled Center the British way, though, with the r before the e, like Centre. If their uncle worked there, don’t you think they’d spell it the US way, and if they made a genuine typo wouldn’t it be less like an alternate spelling? I know I don’t spell stuff the British way by mistake. (It’s possible that the reporting person who made the post and wrote out Centre is British, because they say that the information is from this other user, and that the reporting person, not the source, is the one who spelled Centre that way.)

The person who this information is from has no personal details on LiveJournal and is only a member of two groups.

My uncle is a nurse at CSMC and texted me 10 minutes ago saying Britney Spears was admitted about an hour ago. He’s going to text me when he finds out why and any more information. I’m scared! I don’t know what’s going on with her.

I don’t have many details. My uncle called and said she just left. He didn’t see her or deal with her, one of his friend co-workers was around her for a minute. Somebody she was with brought her there and admitted her. His friend said she acted like she wasn’t “there” and seemed disturbed. Because it’s confidental, he doesn’t know what she was admitted for or what she saw the doctor about, but because she’s already gone home, that usually means nothing major. Oh, almost forgot, she was WEARING A DARK COLORED WIG. I’m so freaked out. I just want her to be normal and cute again like pre-Slave 4 U.

2. Britney told the tattoo artists that she shaved her head because “I don’t want anyone touching me. I’m tired of everybody touching me.” To me that just meant she’s tired of getting her extensions done every few days, but people are jumping to the conclusion that it’s a sign she was raped.

3. Britney’s manager Larry Rudolph has made a statement about her shaving her head, saying she went through a “tragic thing” and that this was cathartic for her, and people are jumping to conclusions:

“Britney has been through a tragic thing that hopefully will never happen again, shaving her hair was a sort of therapeutic thing for her.”

Larry also goes on to speak about Britney seeking help “Britney knows that she needs help and is already going through counselling, she knows what needs to be done and is slowly re-building herself step by step.”

4. Something made Britney leave Miami in a big hurry. She originally planned to spend a full week at the Four Seasons resort there with her kids, but left after just a few days. A source told Us Weekly that “something happened” that made her want to hightail it out of there. Now, I think one of her kids could have been sick again or something. Jayden is said to have breathing problems. Maybe she just got sick of it there, but people are jumping to conclusions and filling in the blank about what that “something” could be.


The general consensus is that this is pure conjecture and is not true at all. It is assumed that Britney has bodyguards with her at all times, and that some other “tragic thing” prompted her head shave freak out.

Britney’s aunt died of breast cancer on January 21st at the age of 59. It’s likely that this is the “tragic thing” that Rudolf is referring to. Shaving her head may have been a way to show solidarity and honor her aunt, who may have lost her hair to the disease before she passed. Or maybe Britney was just sick of the media attention and her ratty extensions and was coked out of her brain.

The video of Britney being accosted by an x17 paparrazo has her saying “Because of you” when asked why she shaved her head, perhaps meaning that she hates the constant media scrutiny into her every move.

And the tattoo parlor employee where Britney got two tattoos later that day said that Britney explained that she went bald because she was “sick of it all”

She basically just said that she was tired of having things plugged into it and she didn’t want anyone touching her, tired of people touching her, sick of it all, whatever it all is… She seemed very distraught and disturbed, she was very scatterbrained and wasn’t really answering many questions… She was very upset… she really wanted to be left alone.

It just looks like Britney is losing it – her hair and her sanity, and I doubt this rape rumor is true. Why can’t she fly to a nice island somewhere and relax? Oh wait, she tried that. I do hope she gets better and that she’s able to accept help. She’s certainly crying out for it.

    Maybe it’s the whole Anna Nicole thing, but this is all taking on a surreal quality, like we’re all sitting back and just watching a tragedy in the making. Think what you like about her as a performer, but I really hope she has someone to turn to and rely on, who is going to take charge and help her.

    This is distressing.

  2. lizze says:

    She needs to stop and breath. Get some sane people around her and organise her life.

    More likely to be a drug induced incident then a rape that happened.

  3. DogRunner says:

    Yeah, this is hard to watch.

    There is something about her eyes that look really ‘dead’ to me.

  4. CP says:

    I wonder if she is trying to get back the spotlight and thought nothing short of shaving her head would be up there with another ans story.

  5. Tracey004004 says:

    I dunno, for someone so apparently sick of the spotlight, she is certainly doing all the right things to stay in it.
    Call me cynical, but it seems very contrived to me.
    If she stayed at home and just chilled out with her kids for 6 months or so, no one will give a damn about her anymore. But go out everynight and pull all these bat-shit-crazy stunts, with 50 papparazzi in tow … well guess what … your image will be plastered all over the internet and tabs quicker than shit through a goose.
    She’s crazy allright, crazy like a fox.

  6. DogRunner says:

    Exactly, staying at home and raising your kids doesn’t make interesting news for the paparazzi!

    Good points, but I have to disagree. I don’t think Britney’s bright enough to have developed this as a strategy. Even if she did try to garner publicity, is this the image one would want to portray? I think the 6 months out of the spotlight would do her a world of good but likely her handlers are warning her that if she drops out now she will fade away.

    It’s like watching a slow motion car accident. Hit the brakes Britney! Hit the brakes!

  8. Kim says:

    I’m glad there are comments being posted towards the girl’s welfare. Post partum depression at it’s finest maybe? I don’t know either but God help her. No other way to see this.. this girl needs love…fast!!
    I may be sick of seeing all this too…but she doesn’t need anymore bashing..she really, really needs good help. A prayer your way Britney.

  9. deb says:

    or maybe just the realization that the slime she watched lovingly changing her babies and maybe hoped that this one person wouldn’t want her for her money just maybe just maybe him selling the story of their sex lives to the media after dumping her on the phone…..poor kid if i had bigger place would tell her to pack up her kids and run me and my six year old son could be better parents to her i think her mom just worried the gravy train is about to crash no concern for her daughter

  10. TishDish says:

    It seems to me that Ms.Spears did this because all the attention lately has been focused on ANS death and such. Good Lord, now Brit’s kids have a whacked out mom that’s on her way to the Hoo hoo hospital. She needs to get her shit together before it’s too late and her kids are turned over to K-fed. I guess at this juncture that he is the lesser of the two evils at this point. Geeze, she really has lost it! I feel really sorry for her kids. What’s the deal with her mom too? If that was my daughter making a total ass of herself I would step in and make sure she got whatever help she needed, if she wanted it or not!! At the rate she’s going she may be the next ANS.

  11. Gigohead says:

    Listen, it’s just hair. It will grow back. However…I can’t say the same thing about her brain.

  12. T says:

    In Canada we spell it centre too, so maybe that’s where the source is from; but I agree with you, the hospital could be anything.
    I think she’s off the meds and it’s freaking her out.

  13. Toubrouk says:

    Yes, Centre is also spelled that way in Canada.

    Knowing this, Let’s all remember that Mrs. Spears is surrounded by bodyguards and paparazis. I don’t see how she could had been sexualy assaulted.

    On the other side, if she got raped, she deserve the best help that any woman deserve to ger from a medical staff and the heavy arm of the legal system.

    This being said, I think that Britney is ready to hit the rock bottom. She got way too much overexposure, her divorce is going bad, Britney-Bashing became a sport and all the ANS crap might just reach her.

    She deserve help, fast.

  14. Viv says:

    I love the Mr. Clean reference, I almost shit on myself when I saw that, K!

  15. adri says:

    where are her parents? famiy? friends? how could they let it get this far? does she have no support whatsoever?

    I feel so sorry for her.

  16. Cyndi says:

    when you are famous before you can legally drink. Surrounded by yes-plp including your family who depend on you financially in a surreal nasty place like Hollywood, you would have a nervous breakdown as well. I truly wish Britney the best help money can buy since I hardly think she’ll manage sincere, loving people to seek in her private life.

    BTW….Its tragically sad and down right sexist to call her utter nonsense of names usually reserved for women!

  17. qtp2t says:

    shaving her head and tattooing her wrist – honestly, she might be suicidal. doesn’t anyone else see that?

  18. Nadjah says:

    I’m pretty sure that she uses some kind of drugs and all these resent things she has done, have happened because of her drug use.

    Someone said that she has this “dead look” in her eyes and yes, because she uses drugs!

    I don’t understand why anyone else doesn’t see that!

  19. Wendy says:

    I was never really a Britney fan but I feel horrible for her right now. This last stunt seems like a desperate cry for help.

    Doesn’t she have one real friend? Where the hell are her mother and younger sister? Does she need to self-immolate before someone steps up and gives her some help?

  20. JM says:

    I usually think celebrities should be left alone more. Britney, however, is hardly a victim. She is an airheaded, no-talent spoiled brat who will just do anything it takes to get noticed. Honestly, given that she’s made hundreds of millions off of no discernible talent whatsoever, it’s inexcusable for her to be having pity parties for herself now.

    She’s the one who pushed herself on Federline and jumped to have 2 kids. Now that she’s got them, she needs to step up and take care of them.

  21. evil dick says:

    Soon she’ll have all the privacy she wants because she’s rocketing towards “where are they now?” status. Right now, her various antics are the only thing that makes her newsworthy in any way. Her awful “music” was a fad since passed and she’s got nothing else to offer.

  22. Mags says:

    I think she’s not just taking illegal drugs, but she is probably taking more than her share of anti-depression and anti-anxiety meds. When people do not take those meds as they should, mixing them with coke, too much booze and a half dozen Red Bulls a day they’re bound to flip the eff out.

    And the fact that she’s A) not the smartest woman to being with, B) she was robbed of a childhood and a proper education by her stage mother, C) she toed the line for years and did as she was told, only to wake up one day in a crappy relationship with two kids (and Irish twins at that!)…. all of this is a recipe for a total meltdown.

    She’s headed for worse things, for sure. None of this is a media stunt. Poor dumb bunny!

  23. Diva says:

    Wow – without a credible source of information I’m sick that people would put this rumor out there. Nothing like kicking a girl when she’s down.

    Like any other rape victim, even IF this was true (and that’s a mighty big IF) – its no ones business unless SHE wants to make it our business. Jesus people!

  24. aneurysm says:

    smells like a publicity stunt to me. the owner of the hairdresser’s made a comment about her not knowing how britney found them, but yet, there are a load of paps that just happened to be there? yeah right.
    i mean it’s just hair. it will grow back. people act like she just slit her wrists. anyone who has ever been around anyone suicidal will tell you that those people withdraw. she’s just in need of attn & by acting batshit crazy, she will get a huge show of sympathy from people, as evidence of just these very comments posted above mine.

  25. anonymous says:

    This is just too heartbreaking to watch anymore. I know there are people that love it when this sort of thing happens but it is just too tragic.

    Britney a lot of us want you to be ok. Please, go to your momma’s house and stay there for a while: detox, relax and take care of yourself.

  26. countrybabe says:

    I really think the media is blowing this out of porportion. No wonder the girl does stuff like this, it was all over the news, Why?
    And they were acting like oh my god she got tatoos. She wears wigs and stuff all the time.

  27. m.a. says:

    Look, if she REALLY was “sick of it all” she most definitely COULD just drop out of the spotlight and live quietly. Who cares if her music career goes away while she’s out of the spotlight, SHE’S RICH! She doesn’t NEED to have her singing career anymore. I WISH I had the money that she does, cuz I know I’d never do anything I didn’t want to do if I was that well off. She really CAN do whatever she wants and obviously she WANTS to be in the spotlight, anyway. The only thing I feel bad for her about is the fact that she probably doesn’t have many “real” friends, because of all of that money that I was just talking about. She started in showbiz at a young age, so she probably wasn’t able to develop the kinds of friendships that us “regular folks” take for granted, ya know? Maybe if she had some “real” people to talk to, she might not be wiggin’ out so bad, right now. Just my opinion. :)

  28. babymagic says:

    she ought to take what is left of her millions, make some sensible investments, downsize a little and comfortably live the rest of her life anywhere but LA, NY or miami, and raise her children in a proper manner. wake up n’ smell the red bull, brit, your career is so over!

  29. Yoink! says:

    I wonder what the tragic event was or if it’s just a combo of poor choices, popping out babies and partying too much.

    She’s clearly flipped out, and needs professional help. I agree she’s been catered to for so long she won’t listen to anyone, and she’s a young dumbfuck who’s clearly out of her element. Good luck deary, you need it.

  30. ROBIN HARBECK says:

    I THINK BRITNEY SPEARS IS AN UGLY PERSON. ALL OF HER FEW FANS OUT THERE NEED TO GET OVER HER. SHE SUCKS. SHE’S A HORRIBLE MOTHER. PARIS HILTON WOULD BE A BETTER MOTHER THAN HER.
