Federline was not directly involved in the latest events, "but he was aware of what was happening," added another source. Unlike the first time Spears was sent to the hospital, the children were with Federline, the source said.
"Kevin legitimately wants Britney to get better. He wants her to be in their sons' lives. He wants them to have a loving relationship. He wants her to get healthy so she can be the mother they need and deserve," the source added. Another source said that getting medical help again for Spears "has been planned for a long time. Her family is behind this."
Britney Spears was admitted to UCLA Medical Centre because of the hospital's experience with treating bipolar disorder, reveals a source. The source added that the facilities in the new medical centre are better than L.A.'s Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre, where the fallen pop princess was hospitalised for less than 48 hours earlier this month after a standoff with police. "Her lawyers and doctors have been working with UCLA. They were ready and had everything in place," Us magazine quoted the source, as saying.
"When she went to Cedars they weren't ready for her," the source said. "They have a much stricter unit at UCLA and treat bipolar cases regularly. This is a serious unit she's on," the source added.

"She'll be in there for at least 72 hours getting evaluated. She might even stay longer," People quoted the source, as saying.
"She's more comfortable this time, she came into the waiting area, had a cigarette, made a joke about being there again. But who knows what will happen. All we can hope for is that she gets better," she added. According to the source, logistics in getting her help and getting her to the hospital were planned better and far in advance.
The 26-year-old was previously admitted to LA's Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre earlier this month after a three-hour standoff with police. "Something like this has been in the works since the [last trip to Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre]. She has been seeing her psychiatrist every day," the source said.
"No one thought this would happen this soon, but it was clear if she stayed up for more than three days she'd have to get sent, since that could cause real damage. The last time she slept was Saturday. "The motorcade and everything was planned, it was already in the works to have them block off the road and airspace. It worked out perfectly," the source added.
