People: Britney Spears Enters Rehab

Britney Spears has entered rehab, the singer's manager Larry Rudolph, confirms to PEOPLE.

"Britney Spears has voluntarily checked herself into an undisclosed rehab facility today," Rudolph says in a statement. "We ask that the media respect her privacy as well as those of her family and friends at this time."

The latest news caps off a wild holiday weekend for the pop star, who shaved her head, got two new tattoos and was spotted partying in West Hollywood over the last several days.

Last week Spears, 25, visited Eric Clapton's Crossroads Centre in Antigua but left after just one day and headed to Florida, a source told PEOPLE on Friday.

Kevin should take advantage of this. I know it might be low down. But i would take advantage of her current state and use that against her.

Now that things have been settled and Britney is in rehab, I think it's time for Kevin to act too. He probably already is. I wouldn't be surprised to hear something in the next few days. I don't know how long it will take to put together something, put it before the judge, and get his/her decision.

Stupid. She's getting help. You should be happy that Brit has at least decided that she needs help, and is now taking advantage of it, before it's too late. Instead of saying ignorant shit like Kevin should take advantage of the situation. Unless Kevin and his lawyer can really prove that both boys are in harms way, he has nothing to fight against Britney there. I highly doubt Brit abuses her kids, and isolate them.

It actually wouldn't be very smart of Kevin to use Britney's mental illness as a way to stick it to her, especially if he is still asking for spousal support. It will just look like he is taking advantage of her in a fragile state. It will backfire. He will look bad.

Now if he was just asking for the boys to be physically in his care temporary, then that is another thing entirely. I can see a judge doing that.

Yes, I'm happy Britney's getting help. That doesn't mean she's the better parent though. I'm not convinced she's taken great care of her kids since the divorce. She may love them but that doesn't mean she's able to tend to them very well right now, she's got too many problems of her own.

I agree. But then again you never know. I hate to say this, but if Britney keeps going the route she is, Kevin will have a good shot at taking those kids. I believe that's part of the reason why she's getting help now. Not all parents are perfect, and the judges know this. They will be looking for the most fit parent. They won't give a shit how pretty Britney is, and the fact that she was one of the worlds biggest pop stars. It's the most suitable parent that counts. It seems as if Kevin has more to use against her, than she does him. I really don't think Kevin did any harm to those kids. But Brit obviously asked for sole custody for a reason.

I'm sure Britney did have her reasons for filing for sole custody but they could be selfish ones. It's not necessarily because she's putting the kids first. Britney's been having problems for awhile now, and I don't think she's always thinking very clearly.

he can t take advantage cause she is getting help...so she will be better and at the court it will be prove and she will get custody!!!guys return to school!!

I am sure she asked for sole custody for a reason. Kevin also filed back for a reason as well. All that dirt will come to play in the courtroom when and if it gets there.

Britney's mental state is also no guarantee that Kevin will get full custody of the children. There are a lot of things he will have to prove himself as far as stability goes.

And because of Britney's mental state, the judge will be even more strict on how all is handled in the custody case. So I am sure Kevin's people are doing everything in their power to make sure that Kevin has a squeaky clean record, because when it comes to children they are not afriad to take them awaay from BOTH parents and put them in the care of someone else.

Do I think it will happen with Sean Preston and Jayden James? Of course not. But like I said nothing is a guarantee.

I agree, there's no guarantees. Now we all just sit back and wait to see what happens.

Kevin have said countless of times in interviews that Britney is a good mother. He has even defended the incident with driving around with Sean in her lap. Sorry. This now makes me believe that Kevin didn't file for sole custody because he believes Brit is unfit(which is now crossed out because he already said she's a good mom), but because he wants her money. This is just my opinion.

I think Kevin should use this moment to work with his lawyer to come up with a reasonable joint custody agreement that would suit both him and Britney and present it to her lawyer when the time is right.

I'd hope that he wouldn't use her current problems against her unless she tried something that was truely underhanded and dirty to discredit him as a parent. For some reason I don't think she'd do that, unless Larry has a say.

I'm glad she's finally getting help. I hope it teaches her how to deal with the stress of the life she lives and her own personal demons.

I doubt it was soley to ger her money either. I do think him asking for full spousal support and bill payment was slimely, but ti feel it was more of a slam back for asking for sole custody and taking back all that she gave him.

I would not be shocked if w see that Kevin has dropped the spousal support claim because really, who would that look these days?

Anonymous said...

I suspect when Kevin filed for sole custody it was because Britney did and he wanted them to meet in the middle somewhere. I think he was scared she'd keep the kids to herself and he'd never see them. But Britney's gotten a lot worse since the divorce, and he's thoughts about this could have changed.

Kevin has always talked about how much his kids mean to him. Right from his first interview before Sean and Jayden were born. He also defended Britney - at the time the media was being pretty hard on her. He loved Britney and he knew she loved her kids. Did he ever have any private doubts? Who knows. Neither Kevin or Britney have ever really said anything too negative about each other, both before or after the divorce. I think they had a really strong bond.

Kevin Is Concerned About Britney, Says a Friend

During Britney Spears's recent wild weekend, her ex, Kevin Federline, canceled plans to party in Las Vegas during the NBA All-Star weekend in order to stay in Los Angeles to be available for the couple's children, sources tell PEOPLE.

"Kevin is concerned for Britney and his children," says a friend of Federline's. "Of course he's concerned about her. He loves her. He's always loved her – even after she started divorce proceedings."

The pair, who split in November, have two sons together, Sean Preston, 1, and Jayden James 5 months.

According to another source, Federline had booked a room from Feb. 14 - 19 at the Venetian Resort Hotel Casino, but canceled the reservation.

It's not clear if Federline has been in direct contact with his two sons or Spears, who voluntarily entered a rehabilitation facility on Tuesday.

A rep for Federline could not be reached for comment.

So long as the kids had adequate care while she was out partying, that won't lose her the kids - her penchant for going commando won't either.

It's reports of suspected drug addiction and erratic behaviour/moods that will cause concern for a court, and the best thing she can do to be countering that is embarking on this kind of treatment program. Not only is it a positive step that she's taking, she'll undergo evaluations that can be used in court as an accurate show of what's going on with her instead of her husband's lawyer being able to throw inaccurate tabloid coverage at them.

Kevin will also have to PROVE that he is capable of caring for the boys if he gets full custody...someting his background and trackrecord doesn't prove! And all of that is going to be looked at as well as why he has done nothing to "protect" his children. Which any seasoned judge would find concerning given her behavior for the last couple of months! Kevin's lifestyle is also going to come under scrutiny- don't think that it is not! Questions regarding his nightlife and his apparent lack of regard for the wellbeing of his children are going to be raised also.

this is all about when fed-ex will make his move and collect his money...like he gives a rat's ass about any of the children he spawned.

I'm really glad she voluntarily checked in and is seeking treatment. If you've ever been around someone who needs serious help the hardest thing for them is to finally admit their problems and it seems like she is owning up to hers and is doing what's best for herself and family.
