Britney Spears threw a fit on the 7th floor of Cedars-Sinai. She was demanding to leave, screaming at the staff, and would not will not lay or sit still. Apparently, she pulled her IV out also.
She was being held on a 5150, which means she is a danger to herself and others. People in that situation can be held for 72 hours against their will. However, the hospital decided to let her go! Britney Spears was released from Cedars-Sinai hospital following her fit.
Sources say the hospital released her without notifying any of the principles involved in the ongoing custody battle.
So, what crazy thing is she going to do first?
UPDATE: Sources now tell TMZ Cedars absolutely made the decision on its own without consulting any of the lawyers in the case. It is Cedars policy ( and the policy of other California hospitals) to evaluate whether the “danger” has subsided at any point during the 72-hour hold. Even though there is significant evidence that Britney has a bipolar disorder, Cedars cannot hold her against her will to treat such a problem. If doctors determine she is no longer a danger, they must let her go.
Sources tell ET that the pop star was released this morning via an underground tunnel. Dr Phil was seen in the hospital visiting with Britney and members of her family prior to her release, and he even walked Britney to her car afterward, sources tell.
According to the hospital, there was no reason to hold Britney any longer.
