Britney Spears was back on the streets Wednesday, after being released from UCLA Medical Center's psych ward. The singer, who was initially committed and kept on 72-hour involuntary hold, quietly left the hospital, but was soon chased by hoards of paparazzi and news helicopters. It was complete madness.
Britney was supposed to spend another 14 days in the facility, but left after only four, having been in for a total of seven days. Why, you ask? Apparently a court representative felt that there was "no just cause" to keep Britney in against her will, even though doctors advised that the singer stay.
So where was Britney's first freedom visit? The Beverly Hills Hotel, of course, where she met reunited with paparazzi boyfriend Adnan Ghalib and reportedly met with her business manager. Then she was off (with Adnan by her side) to meet with her new lawyer, Adam Streisand.
According to X17online.com, Britney and Adnan then went to a restaurant and finally back to her house, where her parents where waiting for her. That probably wasn't the happiest of scenes, huh?
No word on if Britney will continue getting medical attention on an outpatient basis, but, man, I hope so. She was so close!
