Britney showed up late to her deposition on Thursday, but we didn't know how badly things were about to devolve. She was with her boys in the afternoon and supposed to hand them back to Kevin at 7 pm. Instead she apparently locked herself in her house with SP and JJ refusing to give them over. Cops, ambulances and helicopters fought their way through the paparazzi mob to get to the door and try to reason with Britney. After a few hours, she was wheeled out on a gurney and taken to the hospital for a "mental evaluation." While there are a lot of ways to point fingers in this situation, we still don't know the details of what exactly went down and clearly this debacle has reached a heartbreaking low.
Keep refreshing for more updates below.
Update: According to cops, she was "under the influence of an unknown substance."
Update #2: Britney was, in fact, taken out of her house on a gurney (seen below in blurry screen caps). Soon after her boys were taken out of the house. Kevin was on the scene.
Update #3: According to OK! Kevin and his lawyer are at the hospital with Britney. Sam Lutfi is also there as is Britney's father.
Update #4: Sean Preston came to the hospital with Kevin, but Jayden James was brought in a second ambulance, separate from Britney. Poor baby.
Update #5: Britney is currently being held at Cedars-Sinai under a 72-hour suicide watch, and will undergo a mental evaluation later today. Sean Preston and Jayden James were released from the hospital early this morning.
On the legal side of the subject, TMZ is reporting that Kevin's lawyer Mark Vincent is headed to court at 8:30 this morning to try to get Britney's visitation rights fully removed, at least for the time being.
