Britney Spears rushed her two-year-old son Jayden James to hospital yesterday after he suffered a suspected seizure during a long-awaited family trip to her hometown.
In what could be a devastating setback for the singer, who has just got her life back on track after a public meltdown earlier this year, Jayden James was raced to the emergency ward after lapsing into a "vague and unresponsive" state. The toddler fell ill yesterday afternoon at the family home in Kentwood, Louisiana.
The entire Spears clan made the 25-mile dash to Southwest Mississippi Regional Medical Centre, Mississippi. Doctors were unable to pinpoint the problem straight away and kept the toddler in for overnight observation. Reports suggest a distraught Britney, refused to leave his side and asked for a bed next to him in the ward.
Her ex-husband, Kevin Federline, is now believed to be making plans to jet out of Los Angeles to be at Jayden's bedside.
It's the first time Britney has been allowed to leave California with sons Sean Preston, 3, and Jayden since their dad K-Fed was given full custody in July.
A representative for the Spears family gave BritneySpears.com the following exclusive statement about Jayden's hospitalization:
"Jayden James Federline was admitted to the Southwest Mississippi Regional Medical Center on Sunday, November 9th. Doctors concluded he had a reaction to something he ingested. He is expected to be discharged tomorrow."
Get well soon, Jayden!
