Britney Spears Leaves Rehab

A day after entering Promises, a residential rehab facility in Malibu, Britney Spears has checked out of the treatment center, a source confirms to PEOPLE.

"It was against their advice," says the source. "If she comes back for treatment, Promises will have to assess the situation. Sometimes people come back, but it doesn't look good."

Promises is not a locked-down facility, so a patient is able to leave the program if he or she wants to.

Entertainment Tonight and TMZ.com were first to report that Spears had left rehab.

On Tuesday, Spears's manager, Larry Rudolph, told PEOPLE the singer had "voluntarily checked herself into an undisclosed rehab facility today."

Over the weekend, Spears, 25, shaved her head, got two new tattoos and was spotted partying in West Hollywood.

Last week, she visited Eric Clapton's Crossroads Centre in Antigua but left after just one day and headed to Florida, a source told PEOPLE at the time.

Alison's note - there have so many rumors and reports about this it's hard to keep up. I'm posting this rumor because if true it's pretty significant and it involves Kevin.

Britney's Been Spotted!

This is still unconfirmed, but we just received a tip that Britney Spears is at an office building in West Hollywood RIGHT NOW (9119 Sunset Blvd, which is near the Chateau Marmont, where another source told PerezHilton.com Britney was at earlier today).

Spears it apparently at the law office of Barry Tarlows (a defense attorney) wearing her 2 dollar blonde wig with a brown hat and some brown haired assistant-looking girl.

No clue what she's doing there.

Update: Britney is reportedly "flipping out" because Kevin Federline won't let her see their two boys, sources tell us.

Britney Spears Lawyers Up

Britney Spears has lawyered up again -- this time, she met with the lawyer who represented Mel Gibson in his DUI case.

Sources say Spears went this morning to meet with Blair Berk, a prominent criminal defense lawyer whose roster of clients includes Lindsay Lohan, Halle Berry, Tracy Morgan and others.

We do not know why Spears chose to meet with Berk, although it's unlikely it has anything to do with her divorce. In her divorce case, Spears is repped by disso-queen Laura Wasser.

Spears could have met with Berk on a civil matter, as Berk handles both civil and criminal matters. Interestingly, Berk once repped Reese Witherspoon in her battle with hard-driving paparazzi. It's possible Spears went to Berk for similar reasons.

Britney. :( It's not going to work this time. The sooner you accept the situation the better.

There are also sources claiming that Lynne has them. Which one is it. Whatever, at least they are safe.

Britney was at the rehab place since Monday, but "freaked out" when the media found her yesterday and that is why she left according to more sources.

This is just too much.

X17 has a new video of Britney up leaving a criminal defense law office. This is about to get really nasty considering the recent news about Kevin keeping the children from Britney.

While I don't blame Kevin ONE BIT because I woulld do the same, legally he might could get in trouble because Britney is the one who legally has phyically custody.

This is way the law is so fucked up.

That video was a Princess Diana-like accident waiting to happen. The driving by the paparrazzi was dangerous as hell.

I wouldn't be surprised if Britney ended up just like Princess Di. They are doing her the same way. Sad, sad, sad.

Why the hell is he screaming "Are you okay? Your fans want to know! at her. She is not ok. Damn.

OMG, this is so sad. Please, please leave this girl alone so she can get her life in order. Princess Di met her untimely death because of this type of thing - Britney may not be in a good mental state now but she does not need to have paps hounding her and chasing her. How sad - I am not a Britney fan but I sure do feel for her.

Also, there are different reports about who has the children. Where are they?

I really hope she goes back and this was just a way to prevent the paparazzi from stalking her at the clinic. It's invasive to the Britney, the other patients, and the staff trying to help the patients.

Wow, don't even compare Britney Spears to Princess Di!!!! What the hell?!?! Yea, the paps were followin her and it sucks, but lets face it. If they weren't interested in her, she pull some stupid stunt (i.e. shaving her frickin head) to get their attention. Brit Brit has truly turned into a media spectacle...

Anonymous 4:24pm - I went back and reread some of the posts and I don't see where anyone is comparing Britney to Princess Di personally. I think they are comparing the situation with the papparzzi and hounding them.
