Britney Spears and Thursday at UCLA - Thursday 31st January 2008

Police escort the ambulance as Britney Spears is rushed to the UCLA hospital SPEARS HOSPITALISED BRITNEY SPEARS has been taken by ambulance from her Los Angeles mansion and admitted to the city's UCLA hospital. The star's ambulance was surrounded by a convoy of police cars as it left her Beverly Hills home, after a major incident which saw the property surrounded by emergency services. Police, paramedics and U.S. rangers were seen entering the star's luxury compound and opening the property's fire gates late on Wednesday (30Jan08) night. Spear's mother Lynne, who is in L.A. visiting her elder daughter, was seen entering the house, followed by the star's father Jamie, who was seen crying as he arrived at the property. As the pop star was whisked away to hospital, Lynne Spears was seen following the ambulance in a car with her daughter's paparazzo boyfriend Adnan Ghalib. Spears was admitted to UCLA at around 1.30am on Thursday (31Jan08) morning, with her longtime companion/manager Sam Lutfi seen leaving the facility a short time later. The star will be held at the hospital on a metal health order, according to TMZ.com. The 26-year-old was previously admitted to L.A.'s Cedars-Sinai Medical Center earlier this month (03Jan08) after a three-hour stand-off with police, and was held for two days on a '5150 hold' order, meaning medics have reason to believe she is a danger to herself or others.
