Britney Wheeled Out on a Gurney!!

1/4/2008 12:38 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

OMG THE DRAMA! TMZ is there as Britney Spears was just wheeled out of her home on a gurney by paramedics. Look at that shot of her inside the ambulance -- she's frickin' smiling! Why God, why?!?

Once in the ambulance, paramedics can be seen trying to strap her legs down before taking off.

Britney Spears: Click to watchWe're told Britney is being taken to a local hospital on a "medical hold" -- essentially a mental evaluation. Cops found her earlier this evening at her home under the influence of an "unknown substance."

Cops were called to the popnightmare's home in Beverly Hills this evening, after she reportedly refused to return custody of her two kids to their father's bodyguard. Oh, the insanity of it all!

UPDATE: Britney has arrived at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. We're told as she was brought out of the ambulance, she flipped off the waiting paparazzi. Oh my God. That Britney's shameless!

Keep refreshing for updates!

I have been saying that since she shaved her head she is suffering from post pardum depression. Anyone who has, or has known of someone who has suffered from this would not be judging, laughing, etc.... Itis an ILLNESS...if she had diabetes and acted loopy because of lack of insulin would we all find it so fun to pick on her??!! Cut her abreak, just cause she has money does not mean she's not human! She is a twenty something, divorced, mother oftwo kids under 2!! That's daunting for anyone!

While I think she's a trainwreck I also feel for her simply because the paparazzi won't leave her alone for a second. Perhaps if she could have a normal life and not be followed everywhere she could begin to help herself. Everyone needs to leave her alone ~ if not for her, for her kids.

This young lady is suffering from a serious mental illness of some sort. Yes, I'm sure she was on illegal drugs, Probably to self medicate and numb herself to the pain. Yes, we all saw this coming, and laughed..Last night could have been much worse. She could have injured or killed those poor babies of hers. My god, one had to be taken to the hospital in an ambulance. Those pictures are heartbreaking. She has clearly had some sort of psychotic break. TMZ is handling this quite professionally, in my opinion. Please do NOT compare them to that freak Perez H. He is a celebrity now, and his info is wrong much of the time. This young lady will need years of therapy, as will those children of hers. Thank God she is in a controlled environment now. However, sadly, I think as soon as she is released, it will be business as ususal for her. Just keep her away from those kids, she has proven to be a danger to them. This is news, TMZ is always right on the money.

she is clearly mentally, and spiritually ill. I hope they keep her in psychiatric care for a while...hey Britney, DBT therapy has worked very well for me, don't kill yourself. just get out of L.A, I am not being sarcastic, get the hell out of there, go somewhere small...and please, paparazzi, help her by keeping her hidden.... its not funny anymore.

Regardless of whether Brittany is using drugs or not, her inconsistent erratic behavior is very much like someone with Bipolar Disorder who is experiencing a manic state. Its good they are finally getting a psychiatric eval because without proper treamtent if she does have a mental illness, she will only continue her self-destructive behaviors. If she is psychiatrically unstable her insight and judgement are just not going to be there to keep herself safe let alone her children.

For all of you concerned about where the court moniter was: The court moniter had just put Sean in the body guards car, when she returned to retrieve Jayden, Britney had locked herself and Jayden in a room and refused to come out. At that point the court moniter called the police.

What makes me feel sad is we live in a culture that produces such excess in wealth that is in no way justifiable. It puts a huge burden and guilt, especially in weak people that creates a unrealistic world where the ego rules supreme. Clearly Britt, Lohan and the list goes on are having a hard time justifying their existence...all of them would be better off with less money and more humility. At least Brit is getting a healthy dose of humility that may be the only thing that saves her life. She would be well served to take a page from Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie...compassion, giving and generosity. She needs to understand that the money she makes belongs to everyone ...she is just the steward of it. It might help her get a purpose.. just a thought.
