After being evaluated and supposedly having to remain at Cedars-Sinai hospital for 72 hours, ET reports the starlet is home free and was released via an underground tunnel. She was released since she is no longer considered a danger. We just hope she continues to get help since it's clear she needs some love and rest. The mother of two has lost all temporary visitation rights with her boys but her family and Kevin Federline have been by her side and in contact with Britney since her breakdown late Thursday night. Rumors are still swirling as to what mental issues she is suffering from. I'm thinking it's years of light-bulbs flashing in her face. That's gotta make someone insane right? Anyway, as always in this sadness, we just hope Britney gets better!

Update – Many of you are commenting on the Dr Phil story. Yes he was supposedly there but since I can't stand the man's voice I was trying to avoid that part of the story. Apparently, he escorted Brit out of the hospital with her father, hopefully, to help her instead of exploit her on his show. To see Dr. Phil's statement about his meeting with Britney just read more.

He released the following statement to ET: "My meeting with Britney and some of her family members this morning in her room at Cedars leaves me convinced more than ever that she is in dire need of both medical and psychological intervention. She was released moments before my arrival and was packing when I entered the room. We visited for about an hour before I walked with her to her car. I am very concerned for her."
