ET - Britney Spears Leaves Rehab Again

Sources tell ET that BRITNEY SPEARS left Promises residential treatment center in Malibu, CA early this morning -- less than 24 hours after checking into the facility.

Following the news that she was in rehab, her manager LARRY RUDOLPH released a statement Tuesday, saying, "Britney Spears has voluntarily checked herself into an undisclosed rehab facility today. We ask that the media respect her privacy as well as those of her family and friends at this time."

It all started over the weekend, when Britney made headlines by taking a pair of electric shears to her head and shaving off all of her hair. The mom of two small children visited a Tarzana, Calif. hair salon on Friday, and asked veteran stylist ESTHER TOGNOZZI to shave her head.

"All of a sudden there were people knocking on my door saying, 'Open the door,' and they said Britney Spears needs to come in," Tognozzi tells ET.

"She sat on my chair and wanted her hair shaved off and I said, 'I'm not doing it,'" she continues. "I said, 'Maybe you're having, you know, a hormonal moment [and] tomorrow will be different, let's talk about it,' and she said, 'No I want my hair shaved off.'" When Tognozzi hesitated, Brit used a pair of electric clippers to shave her hair off herself. "[She] came over and sat in this chair ... and proceeded shaving off her hair."

The songstress was then spotted at a Los Angeles-area tattoo parlor, where she got two new pieces of body art.

This shocking move comes on the heels of People magazine's report that last week the singer checked in and abruptly checked out of ERIC CLAPTON's Crossroads Centre, a rehab facility in Antigua, leaving after just one day and returning to Southern California on Friday.

Ever since separating from Federline in November, Britney has been making headlines for her party-hopping and no-panty-wearing ways.

Besides being caught numerous times by paparazzi flashing her goods while getting in and out of her rides, she has also been spotted everywhere, from Malibu to Las Vegas to New York City, making the rounds at the hottest clubs.

First she was seen out a number of times with PARIS HILTON. Soon that friendship reportedly fizzled, and Britney started spending time with ISAAC COHEN until their reported recent split.

Goddamnit, Britney! I'm sick and tired of this! She better had left rehab for a good damn reason. I know the paps were stalking the hell out of her. That better be the reason why. I hope Larry comes out with a statement, letting us know why she left. Hopefully, Brit is going to another facility. Maybe one close to home in Louisiana, I hope. If I catch her partying this week while she is supposed to be getting help, most likely I'm going to dump her off. I'm sick and tired of this.

I am sad and disappointed that she left, but at the same time this was effecting more than just Britney. Apparently the media was affecting the programs of the other patients as well and this was causign issues. Helicopters snapping pictures of a private anoynomous-patient facility can't have it. I hope Britney is just moving somewhere else and not quitting altogether.

TMZ says Britney tried to get a new tattoo before going home but the parlor was closed.

As a consequence of the media feeding frenzy at Promises, Britney Spears is moving to a rehab facility which is more secure. With the pap swarming, the staff, other patients and Britney felt it would be best for her to check out of Promises and enter a more secure rehab facility where she can begin the process of healing and not have to worry about hiding from the cameras 24 hours a day. I will keep you updated.

I hope she is, but why is the source. Britneyspearsforums is not a valid one.

I hope she is just moving for security, and I hope if this is reported they're not just saying that to make Britney look better.

More waiting...

I hope it's true. That would make a lot of sense if she did. Plus, it's giving respect to the patients who are there. The stupid ass paps were probably scaring the hell out of the poor people. God. Please let this be true.

X17 says they didn't see her leave, and other sites say she did, some say she's relocating. There's so many stories right now i don't know what to believe.

Update: Sources tell us that Spears has headed to the Chateau Marmont!

Update #2: Britney is having a difficult time functioning at the moment as her family has frozen her credit cards. Sources tell us that one of her stupid dancer friends drove her from the rehab this morning.

How can she head to the Chateau Marmont when all her money has been frozen by her family? I guess her dancers paid for it. This is another rumor. Someone needs to make an official statement about this.

People.com says there's no word yet. I'm sure they're waiting to hear from Larry. Larry better tell us the truth.

Larry Rudolph. Fuck what others are saying. I'm waiting for Larry to drop the official statement.

Personally, I think Larry would have told People ahead of time if the move was planned so that there wouldn't be rumors.

Her family froze her accounts? That is intervention you you. Good for them.

I also hope that someone intervenes before Sean Preston and Jayden James become motherless.

The Associated Press

MALIBU, Calif. Feb 21, 2007 (AP)— Britney Spears left a live-in rehabilitation facility early Wednesday, just hours after checking in, according to reports.

It was the second time in a week that Spears entered a rehab facility and checked out within hours.

The television news magazine "The Insider" initially reported that Spears walked out of the Promises rehabilitation center. She called a car service and left the facility early Wednesday morning, "The Insider" said.

Hours later, the TV show "Extra" and the celebrity Web site TMZ.com said Spears left the center far short of the usual 45-day stay. TMZ said she couldn't handle rehab and went home.
