Britney Spears enjoyed one last wild weekend of drinking before checking into Promises rehab centre, it has been revealed. The 'Toxic' singer arrived at Los Angeles' fashionable Mondrian hotel early on Saturday February 17, wearing a blonde wig to cover her newly shaven head but was refused a room because she had no cash or credit cards. Britney, 25, was seen at 11am stripped down to her bra and knickers, sunbathing by the pool. She then shaved her legs in the pool bathroom. A source said: "It was sad. It looked like she really needed a friend." At around midday, the singer made friends with a woman who offered to lend her a bikini.
Britney followed the woman to her hotel room, changed into the orange two-piece swimsuit and raided her mini-bar. A source told Us Weekly magazine: "She grabbed four or five bottles and just started mixing everything and drinking them." Three days later Britney checked into Promises rehab centre in Malibu. She checked out 24 hours later, before returning the same day for a 45-day programme. It has been claimed she re-entered the centre because her estranged husband
Kevin Federline issued her with an ultimatum over custody of their children. Britney allegedly agreed to return to rehab in return for Kevin cancelling a court hearing in which he planned to seek full custody of seventeen-month-old Sean Preston and five-month-old Jayden James. A source said: "Britney scared everyone real bad. Kevin is working closely with Britney's mom Lynne to let Britney know how serious it is that she gets help. Kevin loves Britney nothing has changed about that. The boys are being taken care of by Kevin. Lynne is helping."
