While Britney's life seems to have finally calmed down a bit -- she is safely in rehab, her kids are under the care of Kevin and Brit's mom, all of whom have been to visit Britney and show their support -- reports of what was going on before her final breakdown are starting to surface. Rumor had it that the Saturday following Britney's late night hair cutting adventure was pretty insane, including a sloppy afternoon at the Mondrian hotel. Some of the hotel guests who interacted with Britney that day have come forward (ooooor were finally given the right price) with their story and photos (BTW, Say what you will about how Brit looks these days, but girlfriend knows how to pose right). Us Weekly Reports:
Bright and early on February 17, a newly bald Spears arrived at L.A.'s chic Mondrian hotel, ready to catch some rays. But the star was denied a room due to lack of credit cards or cash.
By 11 a.m., an undeterred Spears, 25, had stripped down to a bra and panties poolside, then shaved her legs in the pool bathroom.
“It was sad,” says a source. “It looked like she really needed a friend.”
She got two – at least for a few hours. Around noon, Spears (then in a blonde wig) began chatting up a woman in the bathroom, who offered to loan the pop star a bathing suit.*
Spears followed her new friend to her hotel room where -- after changing into a borrowed bikini -- she raided the minibar.
“She grabbed four or five bottles and just started mixing everything and drinking them.”
Well, I guess I can't be too hard on these "new friends" for selling Brit out because it's not like they were actually friends...and those mini bar tabs can sure add up quick. Meanwhile, it's still constantly amazing to feel like I'm actually interested in Kevin's side of the story. I said it once, I'll say it again -- he's looking like a freaking knight these days.
