Britney Spears wheeled out of house on gurney after cops called

Cops called when Britney refused to hand over children
Just when you think that Britney Spears can’t get any more crazy she goes and tops herself. America’s favorite trainwreck just managed to bring more attention to herself while ensuring that her kids are scarred for life. She refused to hand over her boys to her ex Kevin Federline’s bodyguard at 7 pm as scheduled after their visit at her Studio City Los Angeles home. The cops were called an hour later to mediate the dispute and they ended up staying four hours while a media circus gathered outside. There were news and police helicopters, nine police cars, three fire engines, multiple paparazzi cars and three ambulances. There was no violence or injuries on the scene, according to the LAPD.

Britney taken to hospital for “evaluation” and was under the influence
Paramedics were in Britney’s house at 11 p.m. to “treat” her, but doesn’t seem that there was anything wrong with her besides the usual, and photos show her smiling and sitting up on the gurney. Police said she was detained as she was under the influence of an unknown substance. Britney was wheeled out of her house on a gurney, smiling maniacally. She arrived at Cedars-Sinai medical center at 12:30 this morning and is on a “medical hold” while her mental state is evaluated. She could be in the hospital for 72 hours as they try to diagnose what’s wrong with her.

Jayden James, 1, is in the hospital for unknown reasons. Sean Preston is with K-Fed
Sadly, at least one child was said to be in another ambulance accompanying her to the hospital, according to E! Online, but it seems as if they may have been using the ambulance to transport one of the tots since the police say there were no injuries. CNN reported that both Jayden James, 1, and Sean Preston, 2, were returned to Federline’s custody after the incident, but additional reports have Jayden in the hospital.


Pop star Britney Spears was taken to hospital for tests to see if she was under the influence of alcohol or drugs and for a psychological evaluation after police were called to her home Thursday night to mediate a custody dispute, a police spokesman said.

Spears appeared to be conscious as she was rolled out of her Studio City home on a gurney about three hours after police and ambulances arrived there.

The children were returned to their father, Kevin Federline, who has primary legal custody of the two sons, a police spokesman said.

Doctors at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles will decide whether to invoke a California law that allows a patient to be held for psychological evaluation for 72 hours, the police spokesman said.

Aerial video provided by local television station helicopters showed Spears on a stretcher and surrounded by police and paramedics as it was rolled to an ambulance near her home.

K-Fed’s lawyer went to Britney’s house with court order, she just wanted to keep kids overnight
This story is a bit confusing to me due to the ongoing custody battle between Britney and K-Fed. Britney has visitation rights and Kevin has full legal custody, but why did Britney chose to hold onto the boys at this time? She was 90 minutes late to a court-ordered deposition that morning, and didn’t miss it as we first reported. She could only be questioned for 14 minutes. Maybe she realized at that point that she’s about to lose even supervised visits with her children and decided to stage a last stand off. K-Fed’s attorney did go to Britney’s house after she refused to hand over the children and was seen carrying papers that were thought to be the court order to show police. The court order could have just been the proof that the children should be with K-Fed and wasn’t necessarily new. K-Fed’s lawyer left before Britney was wheeled out.

Britney’s lawyer, who just quit on Wednesday, said “In a normal case when someone shows up with a certified court order saying the kids need to be somewhere else, the police see to it that the order is obeyed. But that is in a normal case.”

He meant that’s with a normal person didn’t he? If Britney wasn’t about to lose visits with her boys before, it seems like she is now. Maybe that’s what she wanted all along.

Update: E! Online reported that one child was transported in an ambulance, and Page Six says it was Jayden James:

Brit’s divorce attorney, legal ace and saint Anne Kiley drove Sean P. to Federline’s house and Jayden James has been taken to the hospital.

TMZ confirms that report that Jayden is in the hospital, but it is not known why.

Page Six also says that Britney was “hysterical and just want[ed] to keep the kids overnight.” She has also lost a lot of weight recently or something. I haven’t seen it, but whatever:

Our very well placed source has also told us that the stress and mental anguish of the ongoing custody battle and deposition has caused Spears to “lose a tremendous amount of weight in the past several weeks.”
