Britney Spears Update

As if the rest of the world already did not know, pop singer Britney Spears had a custody related breakdown on January 3 at her California home, which included barricading herself and her youngest son Jayden James in a walk in closet, a 3 hour police standoff and resulted in Spears being forcibly removed by police and paramedics with her legs strapped to a gurney under a 5150 medical hold for psychiatric evaluation (she spent about 34 of the maximum 72 hours in total under evaluation at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center).

This episode also resulted in Britney losing visitation as well as custody of her two children.

Britney and her attorneys are due in court today to answer to Judge Scott Gordon in this matter.
