oh my god.
In a scene eerily reminiscent of her Jan. 4 standoff with authories, around 11pm PT on Wednesday, five LAPD squad cars arrived at Britney Spears' house in The Summit, the gated community on Mulholland Drive, above Beverly Hills. Additionally, three helicopters — though not all may be police helicopters — are hovering overhead.
Britney's mother Lynne Spears, who appeared to have begun to patch up her rocky relationship with her daughter this week, pulled into the Summit gates shortly after and the elite community's emergency rear gates (used for fire/rescue) have just been opened, so perhaps an ambulance is on the way.
Both Britney pal Sam Lutfi and his nemesis, her boyfriend Adnan Ghalib, are believed to be in the house with the singer. Adnan had spent the day with her, including a two-hour long late lunch at The Polo Lounge in the Beverly Hills Hotel.SOY SAUCE ON MY FACE, PREASE
BTW ISNT IT ODD SHE DID THIS ON JUSTIN'S BIRTHDAY???????
An X17online photographer has been in touch with Britney's friend Sam Lutfi and Sam tells us "everything is fine."
He did not elaborate on the supposed suicide attempt nor did he go into any detail about Britney's current state.
Meanwhile, Lynne Spears has arrived at the house -- she rushed there after receiving an urgent phone call from someone inside Britney's home -- possibly from Britney herself.
There is still no ambulance at the scene.SAUCE #3
ty oyfreakinvey for the brutiful banner.
It seems as if there was some unnecessary urgency in a phone call Lynne Spears received tonight around 10:15 pm PT -- Lynne was worried that her daughter had attempted suicide, but now she has told X17online that "Britney is fine."
What isn't clear is why police arrived at Britney's home around 10 pm and cordoned off Britney's home and placed themselves at the gate to Brit's neighborhood.
We hope Britney is safe and that whatever emergency happened almost two hours ago has been taken care of and is over.SAUCE #4
TMZ has learned that the police are back at Britney Spears' Beverly Hills home, but police officials would not reveal the reason why.
Almost 60 paparazzi -- way more than usual -- several local news vans and a helicopter are on the scene. A TMZ photog described the crowd as being very similar to the one that was camped outside her home on the night she was taken to the hospital, though no ambulances have been spotted thus far.SAUCE #5
Over 100 photographers outside The Summit now. News crews, helicopters. Still no news from inside.SAUCE #6
UPDATE - Police on the ground and an LAPD helicopter are still on the scene, two hours after they arrived tonight.SAUCE #7OH SNAP.
Britney About to Be Temporarily Committed
Sources tell TMZ Britney's psychiatrist visited her tonight -- as we first reported, she is under the daily care of a shrink who is giving her medicine for a bipolar disorder. The shrink was alarmed at her reckless driving and her conduct and has decided Brit needs to be hospitalized on another 5150 hold.
He has called for police who are en route. No one has entered the house yet.
Contrary to an online report, Britney has not tried to kill herself.
We're told Lynne Spears is at the house and is upset with the shrink. Sam Lutfi is in favor of the 5150, given Britney's mental state.
Britney is basically non-responsive about the whole thing -- out of it.
Story developing ...SAUCE #8
There is 20 police cars heading towards The Summit as we are writing this. This just reached us - there is an ambulance on its way as well.SAUCE #9
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Britney's psychiatrist got in touch with the North Hollywood division of the LAPD and set tonight's events in motion.
As we first reported (see below) the shrink told cops that he was alarmed at her driving and her "downhill behavior" we're told the Captain at the North Hollywood division told officers "something must be done."
The EMS just arrived and we expect Britney will be taken to Cedars Sinai Medical Center.SAUCE #10
X17 PHOTOGRAPHERS ON THE SCENE REPORT THAT ONE AMBULANCE, A LARGE WHITE VAN, TWO UNDERCOVER POLICE CARS, AND APPROXIMATELY 15 MOTORCYCLE POLICE HAVE ARRIVED AT BRITNEY'S HOME.SAUCE #11
There is an Internet report circulating that Britney tried to commit suicide, but people inside the house dispute that.
Now law enforcement sources tell us the psychiatrist who called police never mentioned anything about a suicide, but rather her reckless driving and erratic behavior.SAUCE #12
Britney Went Willingly
TMZ has learned the plan to get Britney into UCLA Medical Center had been hatched for days -- it was aborted last night, but executed just minutes ago. And we're told the plan was so intricate the FAA had cleared airspace in route to the hospital.
Back at her house, Britney's psychiatrist told her she was going to the hospital. Her response was, "Is something wrong?" She was not resistant. She made hot chocolate and waited before paramedics arrived and placed her on a gurney.
We're told the psychiatrist felt her condition had deteriorated. Britney had not slept since Saturday -- a day and half longer than she stayed up in recent memory.
The reason she's at UCLA is her new treating psychiatrist practices out of that medical center.
We're told during her initial 72-hour stay she cannot be forced to take medication against her will. If, however, she refuses to take meds, the plan is for the the psych to go to court and have Britney held for an additional 14 days, during which time he can administer proper medications.
And this ironic -- twist Lynne Spears and Adnan drove to the medical center in the same car. A source tells us when Lynne found us Britney was being committed, she blamed it on Sam and was extremely agitated. When Brit heard that, she screamed to her mother, "Shut the hell up."SAUCE #13
