Wenn reported, BRITNEY SPEARS has been classed as a "special needs" patient following her admission to a Los Angeles hospital, after it emerged she locked one of her young sons in a room with her at her Los Angeles home. The troubled singer, 26, was admitted to the city's Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Thursday evening (03Jan08) following a major stand-off with police at her Beverly Hills mansion after she refused to hand over her two boys to ex-husband Kevin Federline after a scheduled visit. Her court-appointed monitor called for emergency services after witnessing Spears' apparent mental breakdown.
A source tells People.com, "She had already put Sean Preston in the car when Britney locked herself in a room with Jayden James. "The cops came and got through the door and tied her down to a gurney." And Spears is being kept under close watch at the hospital - she is being held on a "5150 hold" order, meaning medics have reason to believe she is a danger to herself or others.
AP reported on Friday, "A court commissioner gave sole physical and legal custody of Britney Spears' two little boys Friday to ex-husband Kevin Federline and suspended the troubled pop star's visitation rights." Read the Wenn report
