 According to reports, the police was called at Britney Spear's home at around 4:00am on Thursday by by Spears' psychiatrist. She was then escorted by a number of police vehicles and motorcycles, as well as, get this, two police helicopters. The initial reports claimed that Britney Spears attempted a suicide, but the rumor has been denied by her friend Alli Sims and manager Osama Lutfi, who were at the house during the latest Britney escapade. According to Lutfi, Spears went to the hospital peacefully, "It was like something in her heart was telling her she should go," her manager was quoted.

 This was the second time Britney Spears was taken to the hospital for mental evaluation this month, on January 3rd Spears was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, after a stand-off with the cops, when she refused to turn over her two sons to ex Kevin Federline.
