Britney Spears went "completely psycho" as she was rushed to L.A.'s Cedars-Sinai Medical center late last night, sources very close to the embattled singer, who has been designated a "special needs" patient, report.

"They had to strap her down to the gurney like a mental patient and she was going between laughing and hysterics," a hospital source tells Us Weekly, calling it "a total psychotic breakdown. She just went crazy."

Sources at the hospital are now reporting that Britney's meltdown had nothing to do with drugs or alcohol, as was originally believed. They say it's mental and that what went down last night was not unexpected.

Life & Style claims that Britney tested negative for drugs and booze. A source told the magazine, "Her blood test just came back, and, thank God, it was clean. There are no traces of drugs or alcohol of any kind."

Because Britney Spears is in Cedars-Sinai's special needs unit, staff are monitoring her around the clock. However, the source said when they got the call to monitor the singer, "none of us wanted to go sit with her." Shocking!

Britney Spears will be on lockdown for 72 hours.

LAPD Officer Jason Lee said Spears appeared to be under the influence of an unknown substance after she was taken to the hospital on a gurney following a bizarre, nearly three-hour custody standoff. No injuries were reported.

Once in the ambulance, paramedics could be seen trying to strap her legs down before taking off. Britney Spears was admitted to Cedars-Sinai and placed on a "medical hold" - essentially an extended mental evaluation.

Reports also say Britney Spears has not slept or eaten in days.

Says a Britney Spears pal: "She has good and bad days - it's mental instability. All she has is to think of something sad and she goes crazy."

You think?

Meanwhile, TMZ reports that K-Fed's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, will be in front of the court at 8:30 PST requesting Britney's visitation rights for Sean Preston and Jayden James (already limited) be revoked altogether.

After Britney Spears defied court-mandated visitation hours Thursday night by refusing to turn over her two sons to ex-husband Kevin Federline, police were summoned to the singer's home - and later, a reportedly intoxicated Britney was taken via ambulance to L.A.'s Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

As of 3:45 a.m PST Friday, Britney Spears remains hospitalized.

A hospital source says Britney Spears is designated a "special needs" patient, meaning "they have either overdosed or tried to commit suicide."

Hospital staff stays with these patients and monitors them constantly, to ensure they don't hurt themselves, and to make sure people who come visit them don't pass anything to them. They're watching you, Sam Lutfi.

Speaking of Sam Lutfi, he apparently rushed to the hospital early this morning, as did Britney's father, Jamie Spears. No sign of Adnan Gahlib.

Britney Spears was wheeled out of her home on a gurney... but was still coherent enough to give the finger to the celebrity news media, according to TMZ.

The star was due to turn over Sean Preston and Jayden James Thursday at 7 p.m. Federline's bodyguard was supposed to pick them up, but Spears was defiant. She had been with the two little kids at her Beverly Hills home since noon Thursday, after her brief court deposition in her ongoing custody dispute.

About 90 minutes after refusing to give up the kids, police arrived.

"There have been police sent to that residence," an LAPD officer said. "We don't know any more at this time, but apparently they've arrived."

TMZ reports that while cops were at the troubled pop star's home, they discovered Spears under the influence of an unknown substance.

Several ambulances were called to the scene, and a complete clusterf*%k ensued. Stay tuned for more details as the story develops.

That stint in rehab was time and money well spent.

Cameras caught Lindsay Lohan taking a swig out of a bottle of what several sources later confirmed was champagne on New Year's Eve in Italy...

Recovering alcoholic Lindsay Lohan relapses ... on tape!

Blair Berk, Lindsay's lawyer, told TMZ: "The good news was that Lindsay stopped herself that night, called her sponsor, and got herself immediately back on track. There is no magic cure here. The most unfortunate part of this is that Lindsay has to share her 'one day at a time' with the entire world."

At least LiLo can find comfort in her AA sponsor ... and in sex with Eduardo Costa, or Dario Faiella, and/or Alessandro Di Nunzio. And hey, if she has to go back to rehab, there's always a chance she'll meet Riley Giles 2.0 there!

Sadly, Tony Romo appears to have had enough of Sophia Bush.

Celebrity gossip fans, however, yearn for more of the One Tree Hill star.

Kylie Jenner Fashion

Yeah we know. We reported this, then recanted it, twice before.

But new evidence suggests the end may still be in sight for Pamela Anderson and Rick Salomon - which would stun celebrity news observers everywhere.

After they married in October and Anderson filed for divorce from the Paris Hilton sex tape star in mid-December, and then said they were "working things out," her attorney filed a proof of service of summons December 28.

This proves Rick Salomon was served with divorce papers on December 15. He has 30 days to file a response to her divorce claim.

"I would think this means the divorce is going ahead," says L.A. family law attorney Lynn Soodik. "But this filing is just a procedural thing."

On New Year's, Pamela Anderson, 40, acknowledged that her struggles with Rick Salomon were continuing but that she was trying her best to move on.

"Oh there's plenty," of problems, she said en route to Las Vegas to ring in 2008. "What can you do? We're all human. We're all trying."

In a posting on her official site Thursday, Anderson says she is enjoying some family time, but does not mention Rick Salomon:

"My kids and I had a great new years in Vegas! They loved the fireworks and hot chocolate at midnight. Mommy made it home by 1:30 am. Nice! Now on family vacation in the snow. We are doing great. Getting rest, planning new year."

Hillary Clinton has Barbra Streisand. Mike Huckabee has Chuck Norris (and maybe Jamie Lynn Spears). Barack Obama has Oprah, former stars of The OC, and most Democratic voters under 30... including Scarlett Johansson!

After partying with beau Ryan Reynolds for New Year's, the actress surfaced at the Iowa Caucuses on Thursday to support the Democratic contender.

A Barack Obama press rep reports that Scarlett Johansson, the 23-year-old Lost in Translation star showed up to support her candidate of choice at two of his final Iowa campaign events - in Des Moines and Coralville.

Could Scarlett be the new Obama girl? Watch out, Amber Lee Ettinger!

So how did her man do? Barack Obama surprised everyone with a victory over both Hillary Clinton and John Edwards last night. We can only imagine which celebrities will jump aboard this bandwagon for change next.

It was quite the scene in Century City, Calif., today as Britney Spears arrived for her mandatory court deposition - then bolted very shortly after.

Why the rush, Britney?

K-Fed's attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, explained that the deposition in her custody case was originally scheduled to go from 9:45 to 11:45 a.m.

It poses a bit of a problem, of course, when the person being deposed shows up almost two hours late. Kaplan says the proceedings started around 11:32 a.m. when Britney finally rolled in, leaving him time to fire off only a few questions before ending at the regularly scheduled time - 13 minutes later.

Two hours late!? Hey, at least Britney Spears showed up this time!

Why was the train wreck so tardy? Mark Vincent Kaplan wouldn't say. But he did say another deposition has been scheduled. As for seeking new sanctions against Spears - who continues to disobey court orders and make his job damn near impossible - Kaplan says he hasn't decided whether to go there.

But he might, he says, if he decides Britney Spears - whose own lawyers quit today - caused his client, Kevin Federline - any "undue hardship."

Like the last year and a half?
