Back in Rehab

2/20/2007 4:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0220_britney_exclusive-1Update: TMZ has learned that Britney has checked into Promises, a treatment facility in Malibu.

TMZ has learned Britney Spears is back in rehab. Sources say the singer has checked into an in-patient facility in Los Angeles. We're told the move came after family members, including her mom, pressed her to check in.

Spears entered the facility today. After TMZ posted the news, a rep for the singer told PEOPLE "Britney Spears has voluntarily checked herself into an undisclosed rehab facility today. We ask that the media respect her privacy as well as those of her family and friends at this time."

Last week, Spears checked herself into a rehab facility in Antigua but checked out less than 24 hours later.

I hope she can heal her pain.

BTW, the last person she needs help from is Justin.
This is the same guy that told the world he took her virginity and continues to make vengeful videos about their breakup.
I don't think that was cool. I'm sure that didn't help.

I hope she gets the help she needs so she can be strong for her little boys.

She also might have just wanted to BUMP Anna Nicole off the News for a while!! DUH!!!

here's my take - she has a child custody issue going on and obviously is a drug abuser - she bolts from rehab the first time, shaves her head (can't test hair for drugs if there isn't any hair!), then ends up in the hospital ER a few hours later (wanna bet it was for detox meds?) - finally and thank God, loved ones intervene and get her back into rehab. Attention getting? You bet - Anna Nicole was getting all the attention. This girl wanted to make sure the photogs were able to see her - she opened the blinds for them. If you really want privacy, you go to a back room. She has a tough road ahead and for the sake of those babies, I hope she makes it. Who ever thought KEVIN would come out as the better parent? Geez.

I hope she makes the best of this and comes out ready to resume a healthy life with her children. As much as I hate to say it, I think she should just give K-Fed his $20 million just to get rid of him and get that part of her life behind her. He'll blow the money in 5 years anyway. Come out of rehab and spend a lot of time with your children, even if that means putting your record on hold for now. Or maybe try some morning recording sessions, and not at 3am, so you can spend afternoons and evenings at home with your children. In the end Britney your children and your family are the ones that really love you, don't neglect them further. You're young and you still have the opportunity to turn your life around and become a positive person. Good luck.

I also think she might have shaved her head, just in case a Judge ordered a drug screening. Drugs deposit in your hair! If she doesn't have any hair, there is no drugs! Child Custody cases can be a bitch.
K-Fed would do anything to get continued support from Brit, and having Custody would be a "CASH COW" for him.

in hollywood and for celebs rehab is no more than a cliche now. its a joke. when she comes out (which will be in a couple of days) she will still be a complete and utter mess. they need to lock her up in a mental institution and throw away the key.

Just a girl    

Its so easy for everyone to pass judgement on her. We are all standing her looking into her life, not living it! But of course we want to know everything that goes on in her life, we read about it, we watch it on tv, we are blogging about it! It has to be hard having your every move documented and watched by the whole world. I am not a fan of Britneys music or anything, but I feel for her. She is a young girl who got thrust into the spotlight. Yeah thats what she wanted, (to be famous) and none of us would've turned it down either. She didn't expect it to be this big, I'm sure. Anyway I wish her the best. People go through things like this, hers is just out there for the whole world to see and riducule her about.

Boy does she ever need it. If she has not lost those children already, (all this bad public behavior) she seems that's the road she is taking. I can't imagine what will happen to them if that loser EX get custody of the kids!

Alrighty-o ................................ So when should we expect the media and public to feel sorry enough for her to keep throwing money at her by buying her CD's and supporting her new ventures?

If the media would just STOP the coverage, maybe we'd stop hearing about her, as well as others like her (P. Hilton, Anna Nicole Smith, etc., etc.)................If a tree falls in a forest and there's no one there to hear it, does anyone care????

While I commend people who have enough courage to check themselves into a rehab, I do not believe that Britney is doing this for the right reasons. Come on people, what female would honestly shave their head? (minus charity and cancer) Two words for what Britney is........Attention Whore....
