Remember when Britney Spears was younger and full of promise? It’s hard to think back at those days when our minds have been so filled with the drama that surrounds her now.
She came out with hit records and was on top of the world. Back then, she was seeing Justin Timberlake and oozed sex appeal. Her fans spanned the globe and everyone was listening to her music.
Her Video Music Awards performances were packed with actual dancing AND singing! Fans were treated to actual performances that were unbeatable. She was younger and more in tune with the image that she presented to everyone.
They got married and she was pregnant with Sean Preston. Everything seemed to be going well for the couple. She was on hiatus from making music, but was enjoying her life.
They had Sean Preston and not long after, Jayden James Federline and things were about to take a turn for the worse.
After the birth of Sean Preston, Britney Spears and Kevin Federline drifted apart. She seemed heartbroken and sad, while he was busy getting high with his friends. Their divorce was imminent. She filed for divorce after they had only been together for two years.
Britney then hit the party scene and was hanging out with Paris Hilton. It was rumored that Britney’s managers told her not to hang out with the heiress so that she could stage a proper comeback.
She complied and stopped hitting the L.A. clubs with Paris Hilton. But that wasn’t before she shed every bit of dignity that she had when she didn’t cover herself when she was exiting cars that took her to those hotspots. (And I’m not showing that picture here.)
Britney then cut her hair and showed off a new look. It was rumored that this was to be her big comeback. She was seen skating with her then manager, Larry Rudolph.
Her divorce got ugly after this and Britney went crazy. She dyed her hair brown and decided that she liked being chased around by the paparazzi. She went crazy and shaved her head.
She was forced into rehab shortly thereafter, so that she could deal with her demons.
I’m not sure if the umbrella incident was before or after her stint in rehab, but it just goes to show that she had problems that were obviously not being addressed.
Her divorce was getting uglier and uglier by the minute as K-Fed wanted more and more of her money. He tried his hand at rapping, but failed. He came out with one album, Playing With Fire, and it bombed. Somewhere in the world, Britney had to be laughing.
Britney attempted to get her act together for her 2007 Video Music Awards comeback, but we all know how that turned out. She came out, looking like she was in a daze, slow-stepped the dance moves and lip-synced horribly. Her outfit was chosen by the staff of MTV, but she disagreed and opted to wear something that showed a lot more skin. Too much skin, if you ask me. Britney was once toned and petit, but for this performance, she should’ve worked out or even showed that she cared. This was not the Britney that kissed Madonna on stage or handled snakes.
Fast forward to this year…Britney was seen with snapper boytoy, Adnan Ghalib. It was said that when he was chasing her for pictures, he would always hold the door for her or pump her gas. He’s the perfect gentleman in her eyes. He even sent her flowers. Britney said that she thought he was cute. So she decided that they should be together, even though he’s still married to AzLynn Berry.
His wife has recently filed for divorce and will probably seek spousal support. Adnan was accused of trying to sell half-naked pictures of Britney, but it was rumored that nobody wanted to buy them. He got on TV, talking about her and playing them voicemail messages that she left for him.
Britney finally had a mental breakdown on January 3rd of this year. She locked her and Jayden James in her bathroom and refused to turn them over to K-Fed’s bodyguard. She was then taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, strapped to a guerney. She was placed on a 5150 hold for 72 hours.
K-Fed’s attorney was on the scene and called for an emergency hearing, at which time, she lost full custody of her children. It was proven that she is bipolar and wasn’t on any drugs of any kind. Dr. Phil came to talk to Britney at the request of her mother, Lynne Spears. He made the talk a public issue, even though Britney didn’t want him there. Britney threw a fit and got out of the hospital early.
Britney was taken to the hospital again, earlier this week, when her parents planned an intervention. Her manager, Sam Lutfi, was fighting with her parents after Britney had placed him in charge of her medical care. Britney’s father, Jamie Spears, won temporary legal control over her, as she got admitted into the UCLA Medical Center this week. He has since banned Sam from seeing Britney or staying at her home. He spoke out, saying that Britney’s parents only cared about themselves and Britney’s money.
This is a recent picture of Britney, after she had a fight with Sam last week. Look what she’s become….from Mickey Mouse princess to this….I hope that after this stay at the hospital, she can get her life back on track.
