It was too much for Britney Spears to take. Shortly after stumbling on a New York street and almost dropping Sean Preston, Britney broke down crying. On Thursday, Britney was leaving the Ritz Carlton Hotel in New York. As she maneuvered through the crowd of onlookers, holding a glass in one hand and her baby in the other, she tripped. Sean's hat flew off, his head snapped back and a bodyguard made the precious save. After the incident, Britney went to FAO Schwartz with Sean, shopped around and then went to a nearby restaurant where she sat with Sean in hand. She was all smiles with the waitress and she and an unidentified woman ordered. Then, suddenly, Britney broke down and began crying. She tried to mask the emotion by using her baby to shield her face. Britney then took Sean to the bathroom where we're told she reapplied her makeup and then left.
