Britney Spears Gets Released From the Hospital

TMZ is reporting that Britney Spears was released from Cedars-Sinai this morning via an underground tunnel after a visit from Dr. Phil of all people and behaving like an absolute nightmare.

We are hearing from multiple sources that Britney Spears is throwing a fit on the 7th floor of Cedars-Sinai. She is demanding to leave, screaming at the staff, will not lie or sit still, we’re told. From all indications, she is being held on a 5150, which means she is a danger to herself and others. Typically, people in that situation can be held for 72 hours against their will. We have also been told she has pulled her IV out and is generally out of control. Another source at the hospital tells TMZ she could be heard yelling at various staffers and she was described by nurses as being “difficult.”

About her release:

Sources say the hospital released her without notifying any of the principles involved in the ongoing kiddie drama. So, you ask, how could she have been released so quickly, given that she had been declared a danger to herself and others? We’re told the “5150 hold” means that she can be held against her will for a max of 72 hours, but if the hospital determines she is no longer a danger, they can release her before that.”

I’m sure all the hospital staffers breathed a collective sigh of relief when that spoiled pain in the ass left the hospital. One day with Britney must have felt worse than a day in Hell. In Britney Hell you’re left scraping wads off chewing gum off the furniture, picking up clumps of dirty hair extensions, and struggling to keep your balance on the fast-food grease covered floor as you chase after the plethora of wayward Starbucks cups. I’m pretty sure I’d rather be on fire with a pitchfork stuck in my ass, thank you.

Update: Here’s a video Hollywood.TV and the Insider just sent us of Britney driving around her Hollywood Hills home/community around noon today – just hours after she was released from the hospital. Release the hounds!

Note: It’s rumored that shortly before this video was shot, she kicked her dad out of her house and left to help one of her “friends” get through security at her community’s front gate, which is probably what was going on in this video.
