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!

Truth    

O.K. all you pity poohs who think she needs help and she's sick and she's NOT RESPONSIBLE for any of her troubles. You forget, how many times has this spoiled brat been in and out of treatment?? Needs help but won't do anything for herself to recover!! Give me a break! Life has slapped her in the face soooo many times and the chick just don't get it. Growing up might help, stop thinking I'm Brit, got money, famous, people love me no matter what I do. If this was Jane Q public and there are thousands of them, the kids would of been gone long ago! I don't care if it's Brit Smears or anyone else, grow up, be a MOM, put down the pipe or bottle or whatever and be responsible for your own actions, (good or bad)! All the sympathy/empathy, caring loving words won't help this wreck, and apparently she ain't hit her ROCK BOTTOM yet. I'd hate to see what it's gonna take for her to clean up her act. I don't hate Brit, don't know her, but what I've seen leaves an unfavorable impression. If she don't like the lime light go away, get a room with MJ, he's good at hiding. Stop thinking your above it all, cuz your not, and I wouldn't trade spots with you or KF for all the money in the world.
Truth be told!!

I've no pitty for her, if she wants to get better she would have shown an interest. She needs to get help (obviously) and if not for herself, she needs to do it for he kids. For crying out loud she isn't a child anymore she is twenty something she needs to stop smelling the coke and smell the coffee. I've known strugling mother younger than her doing everything they can and who feels pitty for them??? And the publics doesn't make her who she is, we didn't force her into the lifestyle she has. STOP TRYING TO MAKE EXCUSES FOR HER!!!!

"Britney is crazy, most mothers of two don't shave their heads for no damn good reason."

Here's a reason for her to shave her head - drug testing. The majority of drugs leave behind metabolized traces in the hair shaft for up to 90 days. She needed to "dispose" of the evidence, which was her hair. In her case this would be a problem, since the longer a person's hair, the farther back a drug history could be detected by a lab.

I wish you people could say nice things about her like you did before all of this craziness in her life Look at your own lives... I am sure you all have skeletons in your closets and are ashamed of things you have done. Life can suck sometimes and hers sucks now. She is a young woman who had everyone worshiping her and watching her every move. Now she has hit hard times and the media is making her out to be an idiot. THE MEDIA IS THE PROBLEM, not Britney. I say LEAVE HER ALONE and let her get her help. No child deserves to be without a mom.. it will only screw them up!

I feel sad for her. She's not well.It's a shame it is ending like this for her.

Also feel bad for the kiddies, but maybe living with their Dad is the best thing for them.

Maybe a horrible car accident with your face all cut up and a arm missing would make the world feel good about itself. God help you people!!!!

291. Hello people...someone needs to come to the aid of this alarming disease being hidden in the closet for years, BIPOLAR DISORDER!! DISEASE the people who have it, and their families suffer tremendously...She is a very sick, sick, woman and needs lithium or better , a regimen of blood tests, sponsors, etc., No wonder her family is so unwilling to stop her a pre super bowl party? they can't be this ignorant are they??! It appears however broken they are over this, their too ignorant to realize this is a very serious mental health problem nevertheless..

It's sad when TMZ has to tell Britney's parents she needs so much love and care...plus treatment..I hope the hospital in CA... has been successful...however it sounds it's unlikely...because when a bipolar has a manic attack...they act just like Britney, then after med's a few days they feel great! and don't need their med's anymore..what a nightmare..sounds to me Britney has no clue....what she has is so destructive.

she can and will survive this if it's caught early...This disease never address and her life will be one mess after another until she finally decides to take her own life...This is serious people!
People of America unite! Come help this "girl" ...not this poor young starlet..she needs a decent fight.

The media should be ashamed yet proud of themselves they have made this story possible.
Harvey Levin is a decent guy, he needs to figure out how to help her...Nobody is going to help her unless she is treated.... this illness...It's a real challenge for doctors to tolerate these patients....

No matter how poor or rich, unknown or famous a person can be in this wolrd, living without surrendering our lives to the Lord Jesus and giving Him a chance to be our saviour as well as our faithful best friend, we will never know how to have peace, joy, and happiness as we live day to day. JESUS is our Hope, and the answer to every problem and trouble we are trying to escape and find answers to.
