All I can do at this news is shake my head in disgust. I understand why she was released, legally, but still. I really think at this point, the only way Britney is going to truly get the help she so desperately needs, is to be arrested; then she can be committed against her will for an indefinite about of time.
TMZ has learned UCLA doctors determined Britney did not pose the legal danger to herself or to others, such that they could continue to hold her against her will.
As a result, she was released today and we’re told she’s already back home.
The conservatorship is still in place. Sources connected with the case say they anticipated that UCLA would probably release her before the 14-day extension because she became cooperative and relatively stable.
We’re told the goal with Brit’s mom and dad was to establish the conservatorship while she was hospitalized so she would return home to a controlled environment rather than the chaos that consumed her life. Britney Free — How It Went Down

Oh, here’s a shocker….Britney Spears had a crappy adolescence in the spotlight…
The new issue of Rolling Stone offers some insight into what has lead to Britney Spears’ downward spiral.
• As a teen, the singer’s mother, Lynne, allowed her to get breast implants. But after going under the knife, “she regretted the implants, particularly because her chest was still growing,” a friend says. “When her natural breasts became larger, she had the implants removed.” But Spears kept the surgery a secret. Adds the friend, “When other girls did their boobs [they admitted it] and moved on, but Britney was brought up to lie about herself.”
• When Britney was just beginning her career in the 1990s, she was bribed to work around the clock. “If she didn’t want to come out of the trailer, the label would come to me saying, ‘Please talk to Britney, make sure she performs, and we’ll take you on a shopping spree,’” a close friend says. Adds her former driver: “We would wake Britney up at 6 a.m., and she’d work on a video for three or four days straight for 20 hours a day.”
• Britney’s 2002 split from Justin Timberlake devastated her. “Justin had his head screwed on so straight… He became the great force in her life, but it started a pattern — she began to look for guys to help her get away from the people who could control her,” an insider says.
Rut ro….I’m sad to say that I feel we will be seeing Britney in the obituaries in the near future. God, I hope I’m wrong.
Mental illness is such a misunderstood disease. We see again, how need for the limelight, notoriety, control and/or money has destroyed a life. Unlike Anna Nicole Smith, Britney has a chance to make things right for herself. Unfortunately for Britney, she doesn’t seem to have the right people in her life (like Anna) to get her the help she so desperately needs.
God watch over you and your children, Britney. Bless your family.
