Well, I posted too soon. It seems that "Extra" is reporting that Britney Spears has entered a rehab facility and that's why she's off the paparazzi radar. But if she truly is a celeb, she'll find a way to stay in the public eye while she's in rehab, just like Lindsay Lohan did.
“Extra” has learned that pop star Britney Spears is entering a rehab facility.
Spears was last seen leaving New York City four nights ago on a private jet with her two young sons heading to Miami.
Then, she disappeared off the paparazzi radar. Spears entering rehab comes after months of hard partying and friends having reached out to her to seek help.
This is all they have to say, which causes me to wonder if this is just wishful speculation. No official comment has been made, so we'll have to stay tuned to "Extra" for the latest news...ugh, Mark McGrath? No thanks. So let's go to TMZ.com for more deets:
"TMZ has learned that while Britney Spears checked-in to rehab, she refused to stay and checked out -- less than twenty-four hours later!
As "EXTRA" first reported, the pop star entered a rehab facility two days ago. Now TMZ has learned that the center was located outside of the country, and she refused to stay.
TMZ is told that Britney checked in at the urging of friends and family, after being seen intoxicated in public places and was so "exhausted" on New Year's Eve she collapsed.
According to TMZ sources, Britney is on her way back to Los Angeles.
A rep for Britney could not immediately be reached for comment."
Hmmmm...Reconstructing Britney is the challenge of the century: lose the sauce, gain some clothes, take mothering classes, and release hit album. Can it be done?
