Britney Went Willingly

1/31/2008 6:34 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Britney SpearsTMZ has learned the plan to get Britney into UCLA Medical Center had been hatched for days -- it was aborted last night, but executed just minutes ago.

Back at her house, Britney's psychiatrist told her she was going to the hospital. Her response was, "Is something wrong?" She was not resistant. She made hot chocolate and waited before paramedics arrived and placed her on a gurney.

We're told the psychiatrist felt her condition had deteriorated. Britney had not slept since Saturday -- a day and half longer than she stayed up in recent memory.

The reason she's at UCLA is her new treating psychiatrist practices out of that medical center.

We're told during her initial 72-hour stay she cannot be forced to take medication against her will. If, however, she refuses to take meds, the plan is for the the psych to go to court and have Britney held for an additional 14 days, during which time she can administer proper medications.

And get this ironic twist -- Lynne Spears and Adnan drove to the Medical Center in the same car. A source tells us when Lynne found out Britney was being committed, she blamed it on Sam and was extremely agitated. When Brit heard that, she screamed to her mother, "Shut the hell up."

The fat psychotic eagle has landed. Anyway to 5150 her entire group, including her mother. FAA clearing airspace. This is getting outragous. Why didn't they call in swat, or maybe the secret service. Better yet James Bond in a tux could have taken her to the nut ward.

I think her mother is really NOT good for her! All this woman cares about is the PUBLIC appearance of her daughter! Not her medical needs!

Lynne seems to be even crazier than Britney, if possible. How can't she see that her daughter needs to be committed???

I am curious about the tift between Sam and Lynne. Did Sam by any chance pick out this shrink? Does he now have power of attorney? Were her attorneys involved in any way with selecting a doctor? Regardless, she will get some help but I was just wondering.

Poor girl will never get better as long as SOMEONE within her own house tells the media every little thing that goes on in Britney's private home. TMZ, how do you know she 'made hot chocolate' for f's sake? Why do you think we want to know this intrusive minutae? Furthermore, don't you think you would do better to let Britney and/or her mum know who is telling you this stuff? Your 'source' is the root of Britney's troubles.

Lynne is upset because this is going to completely ruin any chance her parenting book had of making it into the market.

You can't push a book on good parenting when it's obvious you've failed. And miserably at that!

I HAVE A QUESTION FOR TMZ., DOES SAM HAVE YOU GUYS ON SPEED DIAL? IT HAS GOT TO BE HIM THAT KEEPS YOU GUYS IN THE LOOP. IT LOOKS LIKE THIS GUY IS WORKING ON A BOOK OR TWO, AND MAYBE POWER OF ATTORNEY.

Cartman your comment is ridiculous. People like you make me so mad for you have zero medical training by the sounds of it. To throw a comment like that and not know what she is going through. This is a real illness just like any physical illness and at this point it is out of her control. I am a nurse and I can surely see that she is in some need of an intervention. The media has made it so much worse for this poor woman and it is sickening! They should really be ashamed of themselves!! I wish that you could find an ounce of compassion for her especially in that she is ill and needs treatment!
