What Is Wrong With Britney And Will She Go Over The Deep End?

Family and friends fear that the judges decision to award custody of her two sons to their father, Kevin Federline, will propel troubled Britney Spears to harm herself, but that’s not how Britney reacted! In keeping with much of her bizarre behavior the singer's reaction was to make an essential stop at the tanning salon. It was business as usual for troubled Britney and the first stop on the singer's agenda - after surrendering her boys Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1, to their father Kevin's bodyguard - was a visit to Epitome, her favorite Bel Air tanning salon.

Afterwards she checked in to the Peninsula Hotel. But, as she made her way inside, two photographers got into a fight which seemed to amuse the giggling singer no end. Then, Britney paid a visit to the Department of Motor Vehicles office in Van Nuys, California, where she finally applied for a driving license and took a written test. The singer still has a valid license in her home state of Louisiana, but since she has been an LA resident for years, she is required by law to get a Californian license. Jan Mendoza, information officer at the Department of Motor Vehicles explained: "When you make your home here, or take a job and you want to drive in California, you must apply for a California driver license within 10 days. Britney is considered an unlicensed driver in California."

Last Friday, Commissioner Gordon banned both Britney and Kevin from driving the children unless they had a valid California driver's license. But on the weekend, Britney was allegedly seen driving her two children around LA without a valid license. She was already being investigated for the alleged hit-and-run and for driving without a license in August, offences for which she was warned she faced up to a year in prison. New York divorce lawyer Raoul Felder said: "She was driving without a license with a child in the car," he said. "You can put aside the in and out of rehab, the shaving her head. But this? When a judge went out on a limb for her? There's no going back."

Kevin's lawyer immediately went to an Los Angeles court and on Monday the judge ordered the singer's ex-husband to take charge of Sean Preston and Jayden James from midday until further notice. The order from LA County Superior Court judge Scott Gordon comes after Britney ignored the Commissioner's list of requirements of things she needed to do in order to maintain 50/50 custody. She has failed to obey any of the other demands laid down by the judge: she didn't meet a drug counselor; she refused to submit to drug testing; she didn't enroll in parenting classes; and she failed to sign the judge's order. The judge also banned either parent from taking drugs or drinking up to 12 hours before caring for the boys. According to celebrity website TMZ, Britney failed to meet any of the judges requirements. The judge said Kevin was to "retain physical custody of the minor children until further order of the court".

Britney has faced a barrage of criticism over her high-profile lifestyle, including court allegations that she was a "habitual and continuous" user of drink and drugs. Last month a bodyguard told a hearing of the extent of Britney's drug abuse. Tony Barretto claimed the singer had overdosed on a mixture of Class A drugs hours before her comeback performance in May and just weeks after leaving rehab. Mr Barretto said Britney had taken cocaine and crystal meth with fellow troubled pop star Howie Day, with whom she was rumored to have had a fling, and was "completely out of it. She was distraught, crying and looked so ill. We thought she was dying."

Britney was charged last month for allegedly crashing into a parked car and shortly afterward was seen in floods of tears after taking a drugs test ordered by the court. The incident followed a disastrous week in which her lawyer and manager quit because they could not cope with her erratic behaviour. Mr Barretto said: "Britney is out of control and needs help. She is not a good mother and has mental problems. "With her drug and booze issues, her home is no place for children to be raised."

Britney didn’t just lose it since she left rehab last spring what about what put her their in the first place. The famous meltdown last February where she shaved her head! But after all that wasn’t even the beginning. It just happened to be a high point. She did have issues that were called into question before that. Remember Britney driving with five month old, Sean Preston on her lap? Or when she almost dropped him in May of 2006 while carrying a drink in the other hand?

So whether you want to focus on the recent Britney issues or the old this girl needs help. And I personally think the judge did the right thing giving the boys to Kevin. Maybe she can turn it around and get them back, but going tanning after losing your kids and smiling sure doesn’t help that.

Here are some images of Britney from yesterday:

Britney's reaction to losing custody of her children was mild, she headed to the tanning salon.

It was reported Britney had dinner at the restaurant Nobu in Malibu last night.

Yesterday afternoon an emotionless Britney seen just after she learned she had lost custody of her children.

The children arrived at father Kevin Federline's mansion in Tarzana, California after being collected from Britney by a bodyguard.
