Britney Spears was admitted to the UCLA Medical Center early Thursday morning, January 31, reportedly to undergo another mental evaluation concerning her increasingly erratic behavior.
Britney Spears made her second trip to the UCLA Medical Center early Thursday morning, January 31, being taken from her Beverly Hills home by ambulance and escorted by more than a dozen police officers as two helicopters followed overhead.
While reports are swirling that the troubled pop singer was transported to UCLA for mental treatment and evaluation during a 72-hour emergency hold, known as a 5150, a representative for the Spears family declined to comment on the hospitalization, so did the police who simply confirmed that officers were at the Spears house but declined to comment on what went down.
Unlike them all, Britney's BFF Sam Lutfi willingly shared a bit to People, saying "She went willingly. It was like something in her heart was telling her she should go. She knew something was wrong."
Britney's Thursday hospitalization according to multiple sources was engineered by Lutfi who alerted the singer's psychiatrist informed about Britney's apparent mental instability. The psychiatrist then made the call to get her in care.
Britney's mother Lynne Spears, who initially opposed to having her daughter committed to the hospital, was seen leaving the UCLA Medical Center at about 5:30 A.M. Thursday. Being asked if her daughter was all right, she replied, "Yeah."
The Thursday hospitalization was Britney's second time in a month. She was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for mental evaluation back on January 3 following a "family custody dispute" during when she refused to hand over sons Sean Preston and Jayden James to former husband Kevin Federline's bodyguards as ordered by the court.
