Back in 2007, Britney Spears suffered one of most surprising celebrity breakdowns of all time.
Broken by the constant stresses of fame, Spears shaved her head, attacked paparazzi, and generally acted out in a fashion that left fans genuinely concerned.
You may remember the "leave Britney alone" guy and his many imitators.
Fortunately, Brit recovered and put those days behind her.
She's now a stable mother of two and the headliner of a wildly lucrative Las Vegas residency.
Sadly, a new report from Celebrity Dirty Laundry indicates that family are friends are worried that Spears may be "headed for another breakdown."
Feeling constrained by her contract with Planet Hollywood, the demands of motherhood, and her ongoing conservatorship, Britney has reportedly confided to members of her inner circle that she's unsure of how much longer she can go on under her current set of circumstances.
“She recently said that her children have more freedom than she does,” one source tells the website.
Insiders say Spears is on the verge of quitting her Vegas gig, as she feels that it's currently adding "unneeded stress" to her life.
It's a far cry from comments she made earlier this year, in which she gushed about living in Vegas and being able to perform on a regular basis without the stress of touring.
As for her love life, friends say Spears is happily single after breaking up with Charlie Ebersol nearly a year ago.
Apparently, her primary focus is on spending more time with her kids, and less time in the spotlight.
We imagine if she gets the support she needs, Britney will be just fine - and she won't need Chris Crocker or anyone else to stand up for her.
