Did K-Fed Push Brit to Rehab?

2/21/2007 9:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Bald Britney SpearsBritney Spears got so K-Fed-up with her soon-to-be ex-husband that she shaved her head – and then headed to rehab, sources say this morning.

The pop princess checked into Promises in Malibu yesterday, as TMZ first reported, but the head-first slide that landed her there started, says OK! magazine, with a furious phone fight with Kevin. "Kevin threatened Britney that he was going to have people test her hair to find out exactly what she's been up to," says a mag source, leading to Britney's well-documented shear madness.

Us
magazine, on the other hand, says that over dinner a few nights ago, Brit's dad Jamie made a desperate plea for her to get help, and convinced her to go to Promises, which has rehabbed such stars as Robert Downey, Jr., Diana Ross, and Matthew Perry.

Rosie – Cruise Snafu Not My Fault!


Rosie O'Donnell is defending herself after a cruise ship she chartered for a gay-and-lesbian voyage bumped a whole boatload of vacationers that had already booked passage, including one sick teen and 50 of her nearest and dearest celebrating her sweet sixteen.

The Norwegian Cruise Lines ship was commandeered by O'Donnell for a trip July 7-14, reports the New York Daily News, and as a result, hundreds of non-Rosie-affiliated vacationers were told last week that they had been thrown overboard, their vacation plans dashed. Jessica DeGonzague, a young girl who suffers from lupus, wanted to celebrate her 16th birthday on board the ship, and had been planning the trip for 50 for almost a year -- and now they can't go. The company, for its part, offered displaced passengers a $50 onboard credit, and Rosie's rep said, "It's not Rosie's fault. This is an old issue."

James Brown's Body To Be Buried, Finally


James Brown will have a final resting place at last, after his partner Tomi Rae Hynie and his six adult children have agreed on where he should be buried. As the various family parties squabbled, Brown's body has been kept in a confidential location since his death on Christmas Day. The burial may take place in the "next few days," but the specific location is not being revealed. Thankfully, the man watching over Brown's casket says that he's looking after the Godfather of Soul. "I [check on him] constantly," says Charles Reid. "[I] go in, open the casket, and close it. And he's fine."

Party Favors: Jacko Wants to Be Prince? ... Hillary Fumes Over Obama's H-wood $$$ ... Tom Brady Ditches Manhattan Pad


Michael Jackson's been talking to Prince, or so it seems. The King of Pop, says FOX News, snuck into Prince's Las Vegas show last weekend to get pointers on how to do a long-running Sin City show like his Purple Majesty is doing at the Rio. ... Hillary Clinton is none too happy that the DreamWorks trio of David Geffen, Steven Spielberg and Jeffrey Katzenberg threw a big fund-raising bash for her rival, Barack Obama, says Page Six. A source says that Clinton was "furious" until assurances were made that she would still get money from them. ... Tom Brady got rid of his Manhattan bachelor pad the minute he learned that ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynihan was pregnant, says Page Six. He had bought the $14 million apartment to be closer to Moynihan, but when she told him in December she was preggers with his baby, he got rid of the swank digs.

Amazing    

So Hillary Clinton is furious at Spielberg, Katzenberg and Geffen for giving money to Obama?? Does she think she owns the whole Jewish race the way she and her husband own the Black race? What did they ever do for anybody anyway? Ask a Black friend what Bill did for them and I promise you THEY WILL NOT KNOW ONE THING HE DID. He came up with the 3-strikes rule which has a lot of them in jail now.

Rosie should make this right. She should pay for the girl and her 50 friends to go on the trip. The girl is sick!

So K-Fed made Britney go partying without her panties on, he made her get drunk and throwup all over herself and he made her shave her head and get tated up. This is Britney's and only Britney's fault. Grow the hell up! As far as Rosie just thinking about her NAKED on a cruise with her dyke buds make me throwup in my mouth. Rosie just sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! By the way, Hilary Clinton has fat thighs and is a commie!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't think it's fair that people who booked a ship over a year ago should be displaced just because some celeb wants to use the ship. That's not right. The cruise line should have made other arrangements for Rosie and made her follow the same rules as everyone else - BOOKING A TRIP IN ADVANCE - no playing favorites. I really feel sorry for that girl who is ill and was looking forward to the trip - and I find it insulting that all the displaced passengers get is a crappy $50 "shut up" gift. The cruiseline needs to be boycotted.

I can't stand Rosie-and this does not suprise me at all-if she was ANY kind of decent person she'd say "oops-you know what? I'll change my plans" but she's much too self-centered to do that......

James Brown looks more alive in the coffin than Michael looks there.

My new dream porn would be a bald Brit and Rosie getting it on "calamari-style" on the stern of her cruise ship.

I could not agree the posts more, K-fed was smart enough to clean up his act before these precedings started. I look back at it and realize that he was not that bad of a person and her people did not know how to handle their public relationship. She was a train wreck all around and this was not his fault, the care of these kids is what matters and Kevin seems to have realized that, without Brit's money. At the rate things are going, Kevin's status is going to be better than Britney's.

IF you people are looking for someone to blame for the trainwreck that is BRITNEY....BLAME HER MOTHER! Her mother is the one who WHORED her out at such at young age and did such a poor job of raising her! Lynne is so blinded by the WEALTH and fame of her daughter that anything Brit does is OKAY...AS LONG AS THE MONEY DOESN'T STOP ROLLING IN!!! Lynne should have had that girl in THERAPY YEARS ago and should have insisted that her daughter at the very least GET AN EDUCATION as we all know Britney isn't real bright! Britney is where she is at because of her MOTHER. It is that simple! I am no fan of Britney's but I do wish her well for the sake of her two children.

truth sleuth    

well if K-Fed was the reason the shaved her head and ultimately went to rehab because her ding that went so public then all I gotta say is...GOOD FOR HIM! He CARES that the mother of his kids is doing drugs and wants to stop it! WHY are you blaming and bashing him for that?!

I don't necessarily think it sounded like anyone was BLAMING K-Fed for Brit's recent behavior, the article said it was a phone argument that pushed her into rehab. If true, shaving off her hair after he said he wanted it tested to see what she was up to speaks volumes! Obviously she was concerned that something would be found there. I am by NO MEANS a supporter of K-Fed but I wouldn't blame him for being concerned about his children's well being when this white trash slut and drunk/drug addict is the one who is supposed to be caring for them!!! I was divorced at the age of 25 and I never went out and acted the way she is! There is NO EXCUSE for her actions and anyone in a custody battle should be smart enough not to behave in the way she has been. It's SICK!
