Britney Free -- How It Went Down

2/6/2008 6:48 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Britney SpearsTMZ has learned UCLA doctors determined Britney did not pose the legal danger to herself or to others, such that they could continue to hold her against her will.

As a result, she was released today and we're told she's already back home.

The conservatorship is still in place. Sources connected with the case say they anticipated that UCLA would probably release her before the 14-day extension because she became cooperative and relatively stable.

We're told the goal with Brit's mom and dad was to establish the conservatorship while she was hospitalized so she would return home to a controlled environment rather than the chaos that consumed her life.

Get Sam away from her and she might have a chance. She's so lucky not to be dead - - having him crushing up pills and giving them to her unknowingly. From the legal papers Lynne submitted in court, it sounds like Britney's house is like the Twilight Zone. Amazing Brit ever managed to keep her sanity as long as she did in that coocoos nest

Yeah Yeah    

She is never going to get better. I feel bad for her two little boys. The paparazzi harassing her is no excuse for her behavior, the dumb A$$ loves it. Showing her crotch, shaving her head, and and cruising around at 2am acting like a nut case. She's asking for it.. Also her having a mental illness is no excuse either, there are a lot of professionals who have a mental illness, and they manage it by TAKING THEIR MEDICATION.. She makes me sick.

She is not on drugs, mentally ill and has been released by a great hospital. The paps and news organizations are and someone and maybe with children in their car is going to get hurt and not by Britney. Please stop from the air and the ground.

I have a child who is on Risperdal and Adderall for bi-polar and ADHD which he genetically inherrited from his father. He's fully functioning with or without his medication, but the medication helps to level out his moodswings. It doesn't impare him. I don't want to defend Sam Lutfi because I assume his intentions were to take advantage of her to begin with, but if they don't take their medication that's perscribed to them, someone should step up and get their medication into their system. The PERSCRIBED DOSE! Risperdal is a anti-psychotic and it isn't perscribed on a whim. In order for it to be effective, it has to be consistently taken. Taking her cell phone chargers and cutting the phone line, disabling her vehicles, etc..., perhaps wasn't the best way to go about doing things, but she needed something of the sorts to sheild her and just take her out of the lime light for the time being. I would hope that her parents have more of an interest invested into her getting better, but know this... being bi-polar is caused by genetics. If Brit Brit is bi-polar, someone related to her is as well... could it be either of her parents? (and p.s. They should've stepped in from the beginning regardless of their daughter's wishes... they're her parents.)

Foreclosed bankrupt working stiff    

This woman is in serious need of HELP. Sam Lufit needs to just DISAPPEAR. She should be kept some place safe where she can get the obvious help she desperately needs. Papparazzi needs to get a life an find some other poor schmuck to harrass. Because that is what they are doing, harrassing her. In the good old days of Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, even Liz Taylor they weren't this bad. What has happened to this sick world? Get a real job......

EEWWWW YUCK!    

GOOD JOB BRIT!!!!! Don't let your parents gain conservatorship of your assets. IT IS YOUR $$$$$$. If you want to spend it all, go ahead...let DADDY get a night job at TACO BELL if he wants to see you. MAKE SURE YOUR LAZY USER PARENTS ARE FINALLY PUT TO WORK. and put that NO-GOOD FED EX to work too . Everyone, stop freeloading off Ms. Spears. SO WHAT IF SHE WASTES ALL HER $$$, SHE EARNED IT AND MANY CELEBRETIES mad and lost fortunes before and since. I'm so sick of hearing that her dad has to work holidays as a chef...who cares??? How many holidays did Britney work nonstop as a child supporting her GREEDY,LAZY PARENTS?????

TMZ please give her some space for a few months to get her head together. Show the rest of the pap that you are better than them. If she goes out ignore her.

ALL WE NEED TO DO FOR BRITNEY'S SAKE IS JUST TO LEAVE HER ALONE. SHE NEEDS HER PRIVACY.
I KNOW HOW SHE FEELS , IAM A SINGLE MOTHER OF A TWO YEAR OLD AND SHE JUST NEED THE SUPPORT OF HER FAMILY AND FRIENDS, AND NOT HAVE PEOPLE FOLLOWING HER EVERY WHERE, WHY DOES THE PAPS HAVE TO FOLLOW HER EVERY WHERE SHE GOES? SHE DOESNT HAVE ONE MOMENT TO HERSELF. LET HER HAVE SOME SPACE.

Duhhhhhhhhhh    

I beg everyone to email UCLA MEDICAL CENTER and tell them how stupid it was to let Brit out. Be sure to let them know how much money it is going to cost them when the lawsuits start rolling in,
