Britney in O.J.-Esque Car Chase

The following italicized article is taken from www.pagesix.com:

Accompanied by a bodyguard, Britney Spears has been in a surreal car chase on the streets of Los Angeles this afternoon. Fox News has been broadcasting footage taken from a helicopter of the pop star, who was released from UCLA Medical Center today, in the driver's seat of her black Mercedes trying to negotiate bumper-to-bumper traffic and being ambushed by paparazzi every time she hits the breaks. The footage is reminiscent of the infamous O.J. Simpson white Ford Bronco car chase in June 1994. Trailed by cars, the 26-year-old pulled into driveway of the Beverly Hills Hotel only to hit the road again minutes later. Stay tuned...

Britney In The Arms Of The Enemy Again

After her unexpected release from the UCLA psych ward on Wednesday, Britney hopped in her car and went on a wild chase with the paparazzi.

The singer was accompanied by a newly hired bodyguard, but that didn't last long.

Sources reveal to PerezHilton.com that something must have happened with Brit and the security dude because Spears kicked him out of her car.

Then, somewhere along the way, a paparazzo got into Britney's car and started driving her around. No, it wasn't Adnan.

Sometime after 3:15 P.M. Pacific, Spears made her way to the Beverly Hills Hotel, where she is currently holed up, sources tell us.

UPDATE: Britney Spears Released From UCLA Psych Ward

The following italicized article is taken from www.people.com:

Britney Spears has been discharged from the psych ward at UCLA Medical Center, a source confirms to PEOPLE.

The Los Angeles Times reports that Spears left the hospital without fanfare Wednesday, with the help of a private security detail.

But as word spread, her release sparked a media frenzy. Ă…fter she was spotted driving away from her Studio City house, news helicopters and cars with photographers began following her as she drove through Beverly Hills.

Spears was taken by ambulance to the hospital on Jan. 31 and was initially held under a 72-hour psychiatric hold. Under the treatment of her psychiatrist, Dr. Deborah Nadel, Spears's stay was extended to a 14-day hold on Sunday.

Only Dr. Nadel would've had the authority to deem the singer well enough to be released, legal experts say.

It's unclear whether the singer will continue with outpatient treatment. Spears's dad Jamie was granted temporary control over his daughter's affairs on Friday (though it did not include control of her psychiatric treatment).

His conservatorship was extended this week to Feb. 14 – following a battle in court over who's best suited to look after the troubled pop star. More court documents were released Tuesday, revealing Jamie Spears's conversations with Britney in the hospital.

The release of the 26-year-old singer also comes after Spears's mother, Lynne Spears, successfully obtained a restraining order against her daughter's self-described friend and manager Sam Lutfi.

The order forbids Lutfi from getting within 250 yards of Britney, her homes, her family's homes and the hospital where she's staying.

In her court documents, Lynne Spears, describing the chaotic scene at her daughter's house when she arrived Jan. 28 for an intervention, claimed, "Mr. Lutfi has drugged Britney. He has cut Britney's home phone line and removed her cell phone chargers. He claims to control everything

TMZ has learned Sam Lutfi, the man who is legally required to stay away from Brit, is counterattacking, with the help of ... drum roll please ... Michael Sands, the former media consultant for K-Daddy's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan.

Sands, who knows a thing or two about crisis management, has been brought on board by Lutfi to, as Lutfi put it to us, "set the record straight" about who he is.

Sands cryptically told TMZ, "I'm honored to work with a patriot like Sam Lutfi." BTW, while Sands worked for Kaplan, his mission was partly to dig up dirt on Brit's former manager.

For his part, Lutfi told TMZ, "Michael did his research and found the truth."

Report: Britney Spears Released From UCLA

The following italicized article is taken from www.usmagazine.com:

Britney Spears was released after a week of treatment at the UCLA Medical Center, the Los Angeles Times reported.

A private security detail escorted Spears from the hospital around noon today, the paper reported.

Sources told the paper she could be heading to one of her homes before getting further treatment for her bipolar disorder.

A law enforcement source told TMZ.com that UCLA released her "because she was no longer required to stay there after 11:30 AM" and that she was no longer deemed a threat to herself or others.

Spears was involuntarily committed to treatment on January 31 and was expected to remain hospitalized for another 10 days.

Since her hospitalization, her father, Jamie, was named as her coconservator, enabling him to make decisions about her medical treatment and her estate.

Breaking News: Britney Out Of The Hospital

The following italicized article is taken from www.ok-magazine.com:

OK! has confirmed that Britney Spears was released earlier today from UCLA Medical Center after only a week of court-ordered psychiatric therapy.

A source close to the Spears family tells OK! exclusively that "Britney is at home with her father."

Doctors for the singer determined that the singer was no longer a danger to herself and others and could therefore no longer be held against her will. Britney was escorted out of the hospital quietly with the help of a private security detail and is now with her father, Jamie Spears, at her home in the gated community called The Summit.

Last week, the singer was taken to the hospital for the second time in under a month. It has been reported that she had been awake for as many as five days straight. On Feb. 1, a court ordered that Brit's father be named co-conservator of his daughter. The order was extended — against the wishes of Britney's lawyers — on Monday until a Feb. 14 hearing on the matter.

Britney Free -- How It Went Down

The following italicized article is taken from www.tmz.com:

TMZ has learned UCLA doctors determined Britney did not pose the legal danger to herself or to others, such that they could continue to hold her against her will.

As a result, she was released today and we're told she's already back home.

The conservatorship is still in place. Sources connected with the case say they anticipated that UCLA would probably release her before the 14-day extension because she became cooperative and relatively stable.

We're told the goal with Brit's mom and dad was to establish the conservatorship while she was hospitalized so she would return home to a controlled environment rather than the chaos that consumed her life.

Kevin Federline Puts Reality TV Plans On Hold

The following italicized article is taken from www.accesshollywood.com:

In light of Britney Spears’ recent troubles, Kevin Federline’s new reality has been put on hold.

K-Fed has reportedly temporarily scrapped plans for a reality show that would document his life as a single dad, according to E! News.

“His plans are on hold because of the Britney situation. He had planned to do it, but not now,” E! quotes a Federline source as saying.

K-Fed had reportedly been in talks with show producers for months about the project.

Kevin has two children with ex-wife Britney (Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1), as well as two kids with former girlfriend Shar Jackson (Kori, 6, and Kaleb, 4).

E! also reported Kevin had been looking into starting a business, which he could incorporate into the reality show, but now “everything is on hold,” according to their source.

Of course, if the project were to happen, it would not be Kevin’s first venture into reality TV. He previously starred alongside Spears in “Britney & Kevin: Chaotic” in 2005.

His other TV credits include guest spots on “CSI” and “One Tree Hill,” and of course his 2006 stint as a pro wrestler on "WWE Raw."

The hospital suggests bringing three to four inexpensive outfits, slippers and sweatpants. Lighters, matches, cell phones and cameras are strictly prohibited.

The welcome packet goes on to ration smokers like Britney to about seven cigarettes a day, and only under staff supervision.

In fact, Britney's every move is monitored, from 7:30 in the morning to 8:15 at night.

Mother Allowed Britney Spears To Get Breast Implants As A Teen

The following italicized article is taken from www.usmagazine.com:

The new issue of Rolling Stone offers some insight into what has lead to Britney Spears’ downward spiral.

Among the revelations:

• As a teen, the singer’s mother, Lynne, allowed her to get breast implants. But after going under the knife, “she regretted the implants, particularly because her chest was still growing,” a friend says. “When her natural breasts became larger, she had the implants removed.” But Spears kept the surgery a secret. Adds the friend, “When other girls did their boobs [they admitted it] and moved on, but Britney was brought up to lie about herself.”

• The singer never bonded with her father Jamie, mostly because of his heavy drinking. “It was upsetting for Britney Spears to be around her dad,” a pal tells Rolling Stone. “He came backstage one night, and he was wasted. She was devastated. Britney would tell friends that her father was emotionally abusive.”

• When Britney was just beginning her career in the 1990s, she was bribed to work around the clock. “If she didn’t want to come out of the trailer, the label would come to me saying, ‘Please talk to Britney, make sure she performs, and we’ll take you on a shopping spree,’” a close friend says. Adds her former driver: “We would wake Britney up at 6 a.m., and she’d work on a video for three or four days straight for 20 hours a day.”

• Throughout her career, she lobbied “ to appear sluttier,” the magazine claims, to appear more mature. (As a kid, her parents let her walk around the house naked, Rolling Stone reports.) “Every girl in America was wearing crop tops and booty shorts, and Britney felt like she was being held back,” says a friend. “She would joke about wanting to do videos topless.”

• Darrin Henson, who was the choreographer for several videos from Britney’s first album, says: “Britney would come offstage after performing in front of 15 to 16,000 people and start crying because she thought she was terrible. The girl doesn’t know who she is.”

• She reportedly began sleeping with Wade Robson around the time of the 2001 VMAs. “In February 2002, Timberlake discovered a ... note from Robson in Britney’s room. Britney and Timberlake were performing on Saturday Night Live that night, and they sat backstage miserable — he refused to accept her apologies,” an insider says. “The breakup was a terrible shock, particularly as it was followed by Britney’s parents divorce two months later.”

• Britney’s 2002 split from Justin Timberlake devastated her. “Justin had his head screwed on so straight... He became the great force in her life, but it started a pattern — she began to look for guys to help her get away from the people who could control her,” an insider says.

• Britney’s original concept for her 2004 video “Everytime”: “To die in an overflowing bathtub with pills and booze strewn around, and get reincarnated as a baby,” a source says. But Spears’ label objected, and she refused to shoot initally. “Finally, Britney agreed to do it, but first she said, ‘I need three Red Bulls, and call my doctor,’” the insider says. The video, which co-starred bad boy actor Stephen Dorff, ended up featuring her running away from the paparazzi before drowning in a bathtub.

• During a January 13 shopping trip to Betsey Johnson in Sherman Oaks, California, with paparazzo beau Adnan Ghalib, Britney threw a temper tantrum after her credit card was denied. She screamed, “F—k those b---ches! These idiots can’t do anything right!” in a “base animalistic shriek only heard at family member’s deathbed,” an insider says. She then threw “a big bottle of soda on the floor…on piles of discarded merchandise,” before changing into a new shirt, throwing her old one on the floor, and storming out.

• During the same Betsy Johnson spree, a fan asked for a picture for her little sister. Britney turned to Ghalib and screamed, “‘I don’t want her talking to me! Then she whips around and stares the girl deep in the eyes, her lips almost vibrating with anger. ‘I don’t know who you think I am, b-tch … but I’m not that person.’”

• Sam Lutfi — who was recently slapped with a restraining order — tells the magazine he may pen a book based on his troubled days with the singer. “You know, this is so much more than a magazine article — we’ve been doing dictation, she’s been telling me her story, and I’ve been writing it all down. It would make a great book!” Lutfi says.

SAM LUTFI, the self-proclaimed manager and constant companion to BRITNEY SPEARS over the past several months, is speaking out on allegations that he drugged the troubled pop star without her knowledge.

A restraining order was recently filed against Sam, which was requested by Britney's parents. In shocking court documents released yesterday, LYNNE SPEARS claimed her daughter's confidant crushed up medication and put it into her food.

In speaking with ET, Sam does not acknowledge the allegations, simply saying, "Britney takes prescription medication."

As to reports that he admitted to medicating her, "That ... stuff is fake," he says.

Jamie Lynn: Sixteen, Pregnant And Partying!

The following italicized article is taken from www.starmagazine.com:

With her mother in L.A. to be near Britney, Jamie Lynn Spears took advantage of her freedom and threw a party!

The pregnant teen invited Casey Aldridge, the boy she says is her baby's father, and a bunch of friends over to Serenity, her mom Lynne's Kentwood, La., mansion, for a Super Bowl bash.

Shortly after 2:00 p.m. on Feb. 3, a Jeep SUV with Ole Miss University and Delta Delta Delta sorority decals on the back window pulled up to Serenity's gates and five college age women got out.

“They were all laughing. They looked really happy and excited to be at the house, like they hadn't seen Jamie Lynn in a while,” says a witness.

Earlier in the day, the Zoey 101 star (carefully hiding her bump under a baggy sweatshirt) drove with Casey, 18, on a 35-minute trek to McComb, Miss., to shop at a Wal-Mart Supercenter — even though there's one much closer to Kentwood, in Amite, La. A source speculates that the couple may have gone out of their way because the McComb store sells alcohol on Sundays. "Maybe one of them has a fake ID."

Bitten and Bound to Brianne:

Hi Brianne,

Can you give me some background about the text messages and why he was texting you?

Thanks!

Andrea

Brianne to Bitten and Bound:

Hi Andrea,

Long story short…I have a friend of a friend who lives in Los Angeles that knows Sam. She probably wants to remain anonymous so I won’t give out her name. I was actually surprised to even learn that she knew Sam, noticing she had him added on Facebook and so I decided to send a random message to him which is how my contact with him began. I never actually spoke to him over the phone, was too chicken to call when he said to, although the one time he did call I picked up and just didn’t say anything (I’m shy, lol) but recorded him speaking. So we technically only ever spoke via text…and after a few random text messages about pretty much nothing, I braved it up to ask him about Britney and everything going on (not even thinking he would say anything), and that is when I received the message about Lynne. That same day I received a threatening text message from Sam which, frankly, I am too scared to show anyone — after the things I’ve been hearing and seeing from my friend, he is definitely someone I would not want to have anything to do with any longer.

If you need any more info, don’t hesitate to email me again.

Britney's Problems Are Tearing Kevin Apart

The following italicized article is taken from www.pagesix.com:

Popwreck Britney Spears may be the one undergoing inpatient care at a psychiatric facility, but her ex-husband, Kevin Federline, is the parent who is struggling these days. His contact with the troubled star has been sporadic and painful, but Kevin is trying to help Britney get better.

"Kevin has had contact with Britney twice," revealed a Federline family insider, who added that the singer used her now-infamous faux British accent during one of the calls. While Kevin waits for further guidance from a psychiatrist on how to speak to his ex-wife, he tries not to let their conversations upset him. "Kevin keeps it very clinical as he does not want to create any extra emotions for Britney right now," said the insider. "The few times they chatted, Kevin had to cut it short because Britney went off on a tangent about Kevin kidnapping the boys from her. Kevin loves her — and wants her to get better for the boys — so he's trying not to let her get to him."

But K-Fed remains heartbroken that he has to keep their two young sons, Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1, away from Britney, 26, particularly now that her stay at the Stewart & Lynda Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital at the UCLA Medical Center has been extended until February 19. Despite the difficulty of keeping the boys away from their mom, "he feels like it will all be worth it in the end," added the insider.

At least Kevin, 29, can take comfort in knowing that his burden is now being shared by Britney's parents, Jamie and Lynne. "Kevin is relieved that Britney's parents have finally been able to step in and force her to get help." Only time will tell if this stay in the hospital will finally work.

"Kevin is worried about Britney because he knows she must be going through hell right now, but his main concern is that she will not be in treatment long enough to turn things around." He is concerned that she will not get past the anger that she feels so intensely and start seeing the opportunity for healing and change she has in front of her, according to the insider.

EXCLUSIVE: Sam Lutfi Admits He Gave Britney Spears "A Handful Of Pills"

The following italicized article is taken from www.usmagazine.com:

Sam Lutfi, who is now on the receiving end of a restraining order imposed by Britney Spears' parents, was the one person by her side as she unraveled over the past six months.

In the latest issue of Us Weekly, on newsstands now, Spears' de facto manager and confidant opens up about her bipolar disorder, how he medicated her, what happened the night she was hospitalized, and how her parents reacted.

"In the depressive episodes, it's all crying," Lutfi tells Us. "But in the manic episode, there's very little crying or sympathy or compassion. She becomes another person. She becomes somebody that just doesn't care about anybody or anything."

"The British accent is part of the mania," he adds. "She'll stick to the British accent because she becomes comfortable with it... But you know, when the pink wig comes on, it's getting bad."

Lutfi says that when Spears was involuntarily committed to treatment at UCLA Medical Center on January 31, her mom, Lynne Spears, arrived and tried to remove her daughter from his guidance. "Well, he is better family than you guys will ever be," Spears responded, according to Lutfi.

Lutfi tells Us that he gave Britney "a handful of pills" before her parents arrived. "I said these pills are working wonders, they are miracle pills," he recalls. Spears, Lutfi says, agreed that the meds were helping her sleep.

(In their restraining order against Lutfi filed yesterday, Spears' parents accuse him of drugging their daughter and being verbally abusive. Jamie, who has been named as his daughter's conservator, "is doing what he has to do to save Britney," a source tells Us.)

Spears is one of nearly six million American adults suffering from bipolar disorder, a mental illness consisting of extreme shifts in mood, thought, energy, and behavior patterns.

Lutfi, 33, tells Us only he, Spears, and her psychiatrist know what brought on her bipolar disorder "roughly five years ago."

When the ambulance arrived to take Spears, "she was very quiet," Lutfi tells Us.

"When I told her, she wrote me a note and put a big heart on it and it said, 'I love you, Sam. Are there people coming? Circle yes or no,'" Lutfi recalls. "Oh, my God, it was funny, just the cutest little thing. I circled yes and I gave it back to her, and she looked at me and she's like, 'Oh, lord, here we go again.'"

Attorneys are fighting on Spears' behalf to take conservatorship away from Jamie. Having Jamie in control of her estate and medical decisions is a worst-case scenario for Spears, sources tell Us.

Check out the latest issue of Us Weekly, on newsstands now, for a complete portrait of Spears' life at UCLA and more from Lutfi.

Restraining Order Against Sam Claims He Drugged Brit, Controlled Her Life

The following italicized article is taken from www.x17online.com:

Two orders (one for a temporary restraining order, the other a harassment order) filed against Brit's pal Sam Lutfi and obtained by X17 reveal some shocking allegations by Lynne and Jamie Spears.

The restraining order requires that Sam stay at least 250 yards away from Britney's home, vehicle, workplace, children, sibling's homes, parents' homes as well as the UCLA medical center.

The harassment order, supported by a sworn declaration by Lynne herself, claims that “Sam has essentially moved into Britney's home and has purported to take control of her life, home and finances”.

It goes on to describe the "harassment" Britney has suffered, saying "Mr. Lutfi drugged Britney. He has cut Britney's home phone line and removed her cell

phone chargers. He yells at her. He claims to control everthing -- Britney's business manager, her attorneys, and the security guards at the gate."

Lynne's declaration details the night of January 28th, the night of Brit's first meltdown after a fight with Sam outside of her home.

Some of Lynne's testimony outlined the various ways in which Sam controlled Brit, including verbal abuse (he allegedly called her "a piece of trash and a whore"), threats (he apparently told Lynne "you people throw everyone under the bus, if you don't listen to me I'm going to make your name shit in the papers"), disconnecting various cell phone chargers and car batteries so that Britney couldn't drive or communicate with anyone without his knowledge, and perhaps most shockingly, that Sam claims to "grind up Britney's pills" and puts them in her food so that she will sleep.

This story keeps getting crazier and crazier!

Britney's Life On The Inside

The following italicized article is taken from www.x17online.com:

An X17 inside source has revealed some new information on how Britney Spears has been spending her time inside the UCLA psych ward.

According to our source:

Britney is isolated in her own ward, in a private room remodeled just two days before she arrived (they must have been expecting her) with round-the-clock security watching her every move.

Only people authorized by her doctors are allowed to see her; two doctors were already suspended for trying to get a peek at her file.

If Britney does want to visit a common area, all other patients (as well as unauthorized personnel) must evacuate.

Apparently, before Britney was admitted, the medical center had a huge staff meeting with all employees to discuss Britney protocol, and the consequences of any rule-breaking.

So why so strict?

UCLA is apparently taking Brit's safety extremely seriously, trying to avoid any situation in which Britney could be taken advantage. It sounds as if they are definitely doing their jobs, but at what cost?

Being completely isolated from other patients, reportedly refusing to see her parents, and being cut-off from her friend, it must be a very lonely existence for Britney.
Although that might be just what she needs.

Source: Britney Will See Kids Again

The following italicized article is taken from www.eonline.com:

Britney Spears still has at least 10 days of quality time in the psych ward of UCLA Medical Center.

But, according to an insider closer to Spears' custody battle with Kevin Federline, the "Gimme More" singer's successful completion of her hospital stint would put her on track to regain visitation rights with her children after her discharge.

"It will be monitored visitation, of course," the source tells E! News. "But still, she'll get to see her kids. They are just looking for signs that she's stabilized. But look, if she continues to take whatever medication she needs and sees her doctors regularly, they won't keep her kids from her."

Federline, 29, is aware of the possibility and isn't opposed to the visits.

"As long as she in a stable place, mentally, and there's a monitor there, he's okay with it," the source says.

Spears, 26, hasn't seen sons Sean Preston or Jayden James for more than a month. She is scheduled to remain hospitalized through Valentine's Day. The next hearing in her custody case is Feb. 19.

Separately, the K-Fed camp took a shot from Spears' side on Monday. Michael Sands, the spokesman for Federline lead attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan, was the latest person to be subpoenaed in the long-playing custody clash.

Spears' legal eagles at Trope and Trope served Sands Monday, compelling him to submit to a deposition.

While Sands is not commenting on why Team Britney want to talk to him, his attorney, Randolph Wright, offers that they might be trying to press his client on what he knows about Kevin Federline's lifestyle.

"That would make sense," Wright said. "Why else bring in a top media consultant hired for Kevin's case and try to depose him? It seems to me they are trying to find out about the relationship between my client and Kevin Federline."

But Wright added that he suspects Trope and Trope will gain very little by grilling Sands.

"My guess," said Wright, "is that is will be a very short deposition."

The Tragedy Of Britney Spears

The following italicized article is taken from www.rollingstone.com:

A pop star at the mall is an eternal cause for happiness, especially on a Sunday afternoon in the Valley. One moment, shoppers in the Westfield Topanga mall are living in the real world, monotonously selecting a new shade of eye shadow or rubbing perfume on wrists, but upon the rapture of Britney Spears, they are giggling, laughing, orgasmic, already sharing their secret on cell phones. "Her legs are actually really skinny," an adolescent whispers into her Sidekick, as Britney beelines for the Betsey Johnson boutique, pseudo-punk designer of evening dresses and splashy heels worn to suburban high school proms. In person, Britney is shockingly beautiful — clear skin, ruby lips, a perfectly proportioned twenty-six-year-old porcelain doll with a nasty weave. She cuts through the crowd swiftly, the way she used to when 20,000 adoring fans mobbed her outside a concert, with her paparazzi boyfriend, Adnan Ghalib, trailing behind.

Only a few kids are in the store, a young girl with her brother and two blondes checking out fake-gold charm bracelets. Britney rifles the racks as the Cure's "Pictures of You" blasts into the airless pink boutique, grabbing a pink lace dress, a few tight black numbers and a frilly red crop top, the kind of shirt that Britney used to wear all the time at seventeen but isn't really appropriate for anyone over that age. Then she ducks into the dressing room with Ghalib. He emerges with her black Am Ex.


The card won't go through, but they keep trying it.

"Please," begs Ghalib, "get this done quickly."

One of the girls runs to Britney's dressing room, explaining the situation through a pink gauze curtain.

A wail emerges from the cubby — guttural, vile, the kind of base animalistic shriek only heard at a family member's deathbed. "Fuck these bitches," screams Britney, each word ringing out between sobs. "These idiots can't do anything right!"

Ghalib dashes over to console her, but she's already spitting, growling, throwing a big bottle of soda on the floor so that it begins to spill underneath the curtain, and then she's got a box of tissues and is throwing them on top of the wet floor along with piles of discarded merchandise. A new card finally goes through, but by then Britney is out the door, leaving her shirt on the ground and replacing it with the red top. "Fuck you, fuck people, fuck, fuck, fuck," she keeps screaming, her face splotchy and red as she crosses the interminable mall floor, the crowd behind her growing larger and larger. "Leave us alone!" yells Ghalib.

The siblings run after Britney to get a video to put up on YouTube, and some of the shopgirls run after her to hand off the merchandise she left behind, and there's an entire bridal party wearing yellow T-shirts who have pulled out camera phones too. A crush of managers in black shirts and gold name tags try to keep the peace, but the crowd running after Britney gets larger, and now the shopgirls have ­started to catch up to her, one of them slipping spectacularly in her platform shoes, grazing her elbow. She pulls herself up, mustering the strength to tap Britney's shoulder. "Um, I'm from the South too," she mumbles, "and I was wondering if I could get a picture with you for my little sister."

Britney turns to Ghalib and grabs his arm. "I don't want her talking to me!" she screams. She whirls around and stares the girl deep in the eyes, her lips almost vibrating with anger. "I don't know who you think I am, bitch," she snarls, "but I'm not that person."

Sam Selling His Story!!!!

As we knew he would, PerezHilton.com has learned that Osama Lutfi is shopping a tell-all interview.

And he's hoping for a big pay day!

"He's already reached out to a few of the entertainment news shows," a TV insider tells us. "He's trying to broker the best deal."

Don't be surprised if Entertainment Tonight and The Insider pay him for an interview they stretch out over a week, like they did with Britney's paparazzo boy toy, Adnan Ghalib.

Additionally, Osama spoke on-the record with Rolling Stone for their cover story on Spears.
And, what he tells them is quite surprising!

"We've been doing dictation, she's been telling me her story, and I've been writing it all down," Lutfi tells the mag. "It would make a great book!"

We're sure it would, you shady backstabber.

Britney Pleads With Father: 'Let's Get Out Of Here'

The following italicized article is taken from www.people.com:

Britney Spears's father has recounted a heartbreaking meeting with his confused daughter as she struggled to cope in a psychiatric hospital.

"Come on, daddy, let's get out of here. Take my hand and let's walk out of here together," Britney said, according to Jamie Spears.

Jamie told her daughter: "I wish I could, but I can't."

In court papers filed as part of his effort to take over his daughter's affairs, Jamie Spears described how he arrived at UCLA Medical Center on Sunday. Britney had called him several times while he was working as a caterer for a Super Bowl party, urging him to see her. (Click here to view the complete document.)

Jamie Spears, who had spent several hours with Britney the day before at the hospital, found his daughter lying in bed. He leaned over to kiss her, but she turned her head away.

"I love you," he told her.

"No, you don't," said Britney. She got out of bed and said, "The doctor told me you are keeping me in here."

Jamie Spears denied it, but Britney insisted, saying, "Somebody's lying. You put me in here."

After the nurse assured Britney that, "Your daddy is not keeping you here; the hospital is keeping you here," Britney turned to her father. That was when she pleaded to leave – and her father said they couldn't.

When Britney became agitated, her father started talking about her sons Jayden and Preston, now in the custody of their father, Kevin Federline.

"Do you want me to help you get your babies back?" he asked her.

Britney, "No, I have new lawyers that will help me with my stuff."

But her father had to tell her that she had not actually fired her custody lawyers, and that there were now new lawyers involved in dealing with her affairs. Jamie said that if she needed help with the custody case, he would be there for her.

The conversation ended with Britney saying that her pal Sam Lutfi had wrongfully taken some of her property and she asked her father for help to get it back. Her father said he would.

Brit To Dad: Sam Stole My Stuff!

The following italicized article is taken from www.ok-magazine.com:

In a signed delcaration, Britney Spears' father, Jamie Spears, said his troubled daughter told him she believed her confidante, Sam Lutfi, had stolen items from her house.
"She asked me to help get it back. I told her that I would," Jamie said. Earlier this week, a police report was filed claiming "valuable possessions" were taken from Britney's house sometime between the time the pop star was admitted to UCLA's psych ward and the conservatorship papers were signed.


In the declaration, Jamie said Britney called him on Superbowl Sunday, asking him to come see her, but that he couldn't because he had to work. "While I was working Britney called my cell phone at least four times. She called me about every 20 minutes." During one call, she said, "Daddy what are you doing?" Jamie responded, "I told her I was cooking. Britney said, 'What are you doing cooking, daddy? Why are you not here with me?' I told her, 'Baby, daddy's got to work.'

"According to the declaration, when Jamie finally got to the hospital, Britney was unresponsive to him. "I leaned over to kiss her. She turned her head away from me. I said to her, 'I love you.' She said, 'No you don't.'"

Britney then became upset, claiming "someone was lying to her" about who was keeping her at UCLA. Jamie said, "No, I'm not keeping you here." A nurse came in to tell Brit that the hospital was keeping her there, not her dad.

In the declaration Jamie says, "Britney told me that she had fired her lawyers and that she had new lawyers."

According to the declaration, Jamie also said he didn't tell Britney about the results of the conservatorship because "given her emotional and psychological condition and her dealings with Sam Lutfi, I believe Britney is incapable of keeping information from Mr. Lutfi. In particular, I believe if she knew I was planning to seek a conservatorship, she would tell Mr. Lutfi about the planned conservatorship."
