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.

1. #15 I do agree that Rosie has the funds and should make the girls 16th birthday the best she has ever seen. rosie should make sure there is a cruise she with her name on it with 51 rooms for each.
2. Bri on the other hand should just become a small ball and bounce out of the world. she was on top but like alot of your stars thy do not know how to handel the money and fame.
3. Now for the gay/lesbian cruise in July what can you say. Bump and grind and such what the hell you want but do it behind the doors of your state room. SAFE SEX. Damn I love women and what they can do to a man. Not sorry I am straight/heterosexual but Rosie is wrong here.
4. About time to but the Brown in the ground what the hell is that problem. Why keep the dead above.

Check out britney's myspace page, seriously, there is a lot of love. People still support her. Everyone has mental breakdowns at some point when the going gets tough. I feel bad for her. Ever since Justin and her parents divorce, she's been a wreck. K-Fed sucked from the beggining, but when you are down, you just want to be loved. And that's all she wants. Just like any other girl, it's too bad she's made some costly mistakes that make people judge her. But that's what fame and California will do to you. I pray she makes it through. Just like when she was younger, we're still watching her grow as a person. She's like us, just all over the news...

Tom Cruise has landed    

Funny how everyone is blaming Howard K. Stern for giving Anna drugs, but noone is mentioning that K-fed could be part of the blame for the Brit breakdown. I think it is pretty safe to say that K-fed is no stranger to alcohol and drugs. Take away the $200 million Britney is supposedly worth and you just have normal wellfare collecting, drug and alcohol abusing family. If Britney didn't have her money, her and Kevin would be living in government funded housing (unwed ofcouse, so that she could get the housing for being a single mom) and collecting a welfare check while K-fed is making meth for all the local teens in the area. Both of them would be surviving off of grain alcohol and generic menthol cigarettes. Britney would eventually be caught shoplifting cold medicine at the local Wal-mart. Great that she is in rehab and has the resouces to get help.

Brittany has been betrayed. She has given her all to everyone around her both finacially and personally and this is what she gets for it???? I can imagine how she feels! She is prob so mixed up as to who she can trust now....who won't be? Ya know,I think when these celebrities just give & give to others,they just get stomped on! It's too bad that they can't find some respect from others.That is prob what started all this is just getting betrayed everywhere she turned.

Finally exposed - shes a wierdo    

I said it before, and I'll say it again. This chick cut off her hair because she was going to have to submit (by court order) to a follicle test, which would have proven just how much drugs she'd taken & which ones. Follicle test determine substance residue & how long it's been going on. Fed-ex has been attempting to get the kids, so he can jump on the juicy child support bandwagon. A bad follicle test (which would have shown on her) would have swayed the court to give them joint custody, which means she would have had to pay him oodles of child support bucks every month, until the kids hit 18.

This isn't Rosie's fault. NCL (and other cruiselines) do this all the time when a large group books a specialty cruise AKA a charter that ends up being popular and filling the entire ship. The terms and conditions of the passenger contracts usually have wording covering this.

It's unfortunate, but it is the way the cruiselines do business NOT Rosie. I am not defending her (I think she is a twatfaced twit), but it's dumb for people to blame someone who had no control.

I never book cruises until 1-2 months before they sail. I've noticed most people with stories like this booked more than a year in advance.

As for the sick girl. She has lupus. She's not dying. Lupus is not a happy thing to have and can be horribily awful, but using the "sick girl" card is a bit much. I am sure other people who got bumped off the cruise had their own sob stories to tell too.

I don't understand how come James Brown's body was able to withstand 2 months, yet Anna's was "decaying" after 2 weeks? Don't they have freezers in these morgues? not to be disrespectful - but, it doesnt make sense. Is it because he's black? KIDDING! =)...not about the decay -part.
