    Britney finally "rehab"ilitates herself

    Britney Spears' impending breakdown may have been triggered by the death of her aunt in January. The 'Toxic' singer lost her aunt Sandra Bridges Covington - her mother's sister - to cancer in late January and has had a hard time coming to terms with her grief. Britney's aunt Wanda Bridges told the New York Daily News newspaper: "Last time I saw her was at the funeral. She seemed fine, but we were all very upset. She finds it aggravating. They can't lead a normal life. She's down to earth. They're a down to earth family."

    Britney's mother Lynne - who encouraged her daughter to go to rehab for fear she might lose custody of her two children, Sean Preston and Jayden James - has now flown from her home in Kentwood, Louisiana, to be at her daughter's side in Los Angeles. Britney parked fears for her well being after she shaved off all her hair during to a visit to Esther's Haircutting Salon in Tarazana, California. Hairdressers had refused to shave her head, but Britney grabbed a pair of clippers and sheared off her locks herself. An hour later she went to the Body and Soul Tattoo parlour and had pink lips etched onto her wrist and a black, pink and white cross on her lower hip.

    Britney Spears checked into rehab last night. The 25-year-old singer admitted herself into California's Promises Malibu Treatment Center following concerns for her erratic behaviour. Her manager Larry Rudolph confirmed: "Britney Spears has voluntarily checked herself into a rehab facility. We ask that the media respect her privacy as well as those of her family and friends at this time." Rudolph did not disclose what Britney was being treated for. Britney's treatment is said to involve an immediate detox with 24-hour supervision, followed by intense therapy sessions. US reports claim the 'Toxic' singer has allegedly taken cocaine, ecstasy and prescription drugs.

    Britney's decision to seek help follows a wild weekend where she shaved her head, got two new tattoos and was seen partying while wearing different wigs. Last week, she visited Eric Clapton's Crossroads Centre in Antigua, but left rehab after less than 24 hours. Britney checked herself into the in-patient facility after her father Jamie reportedly begged her to get help on Sunday. A source told Us Weekly magazine: "Jamie just told Britney how much he loves her and that he wants her to get help. He told her that he's afraid for her safety and that she needs to take a look at her life and make some major changes or everything is going to get worse."
