    Her Psychiatrist Gave the Order

    Once again, Spears was committed using California's 5150 emergency hold, but this time, a source says, it was her psychiatrist – Santa Monica-based Dr. Deborah Nadel, who is certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology – not police, who issued the order.

    "This means it might be a more favorable outcome," says Dr. Diana ***schner, a New York City psychologist who has not treated Spears. With mental illness such as bipolar disorder – which two sources tell PEOPLE Spears has been diagnosed with – patients "have to make a connection [with a mental health professional] to move forward," says ***schner. "There is a way you can bond with a client even though you are slapping them with something like [the 5150]."

    Although pal Sam Lutfi told PEOPLE that Spears entered the hospital "willingly," Dr. Mark Goulston, a Santa Monica psychiatrist, points out that the 5150 is by necessity "an involuntary hold. ... It may be that she went in willingly, [but] her mental state was seen to be so volatile that whomever evaluated her didn't trust it would change."


    Her Severe Lack of Sleep
    Sleeplessness – friends say Spears hadn't slept since Saturday – "is a cardinal symptom of bipolar disorder," says Dr. Goulston, who has not treated Spears. "Not sleeping for three days could interfere with all of us functioning at a reasonable level. In someone who has bipolar disorder, sleep deprivation can trigger a full-blown episode. One of the things they will want to do in the hospital is get her to sleep. The question is: When she wakes up, will she be sane enough to leave, and then not accept treatment? That will be the challenge."


    Possibility of Longer Hospitalization
    Although the 5150 typically involves a 72-hour hospitalization for treatment and evaluation, when she was last hospitalized Spears left Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after just two nights. Currently, "[Nadel] has the power to decide whether Spears can be released in that time frame or not," says a veteran L.A. psychiatric social worker. "However, [Nadel] is only one opinion. Within the three-day hold, patients-rights workers from the L.A. County Department of Mental Health will interview Spears and review her charts to determine whether the hold is legally justified." After 72 hours, "[Nadel] can request a 14-additional-day hold called a 5250."


    Medication
    Although Spears is more likely to comply with medical orders in a hospital setting, forcing her to take medication can still be challenging. "If she refuses to take meds that a doctor determines she needs, [Nadel] can request a court to grant that power – but that's a lengthy process that won't happen in just 72 hours," says the social worker. "I've seen patients housed for 40 days with not a single pill given."


    Family Involvement
    Although her dad Jamie visited Britney in the hospital during her Jan. 3 hospitalization, her mom Lynne remained in Kentwood. This time, Lynne has been present throughout the crisis. Still, "during a 5150 hold, a patient's family has no power unless the patient is a minor," says the social worker. "This is because, in part, family involvement could create further conflict. Even visitation can't be granted to family unless the patient asks for it in writing."

    Says Dr. ***schner: "The fact that the person's family is around them is generally favorable." Given the fact that she was hospitalized a second time under a 5150, "she was probably increasingly worrying people who were worried for her well-being," says Dr. Goulston. "If she's driving and she's actively bipolar she is a danger to herself. The question is: How many of these will it take to stick and for Britney to be willing to get help?"

    Attorneys for Britney Spears and her father attended a closed-door emergency hearing Thursday, a day after the singer's early release from a psychiatric hospital.

    The attorneys met before Commissioner Reva Goetz, who recently extended temporary control of Spears's affairs to her father Jamie and a lawyer. The session lasted about a half hour, and the lawyers left without commenting.

    Apearing in Goetz's downtown L.A. court were Jeryll S. Cohen and Vivian Thoreen, who represent Jamie; Samuel Ingham, a court-appointed lawyer for Britney; and Andrew Wallet who, along with Jamie, is co-temporary conservator of the pop star's estate.

    Adam Streisand, an attorney (and relative of Barbra Streisand) who had once claimed to represent Spears – and who met with her Wednesday night – was not there; his firm announced he was off the case.

    Britney's Lawyers Prepare for Custody Hearing

    Attorneys for Britney Spears return to court Tuesday morning for the first scheduled custody hearing since the pop star's most recent hospitalization.

    Insiders doubt there will be any major change from the current custody arrangement, which bars Spears from visiting her sons Preston, 2, and Jayden, 1. (She is, however, allowed telephone contact.) Still, it's possible the 26-year-old singer who hasn't seen the boys since her Jan. 3 standoff with police could be awarded some temporary physical access.

    Tuesday's court session which was scheduled after Spears's stay in the psych ward at the UCLA Medical Center sets the stage for more major hearings in the coming weeks, as Spears and Kevin Federline seek to reevaluate their custody agreement. (Her former husband and backup dancer is seeking full physical custody.)

    The judge may also hear arguments from Federline's attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, who has asked for a full psychological evaluation of the troubled pop star.

    But the biggest news out of today's hearing could be a change in representation for Spears. Los Angeles attorney Sorrell Trope has asked for the second time to be released from the case. (The law firm of Trope & Trope filed similar papers in January, but later withdrew the request.

    Possible replacements include Laura Wasser, who resigned from Spears's case in September. At the time, she denied "dumping" Spears, telling PEOPLE the singer's legal team simply needed "fresh blood." But Wasser appears to be back in the picture, after reportedly visiting Spears during her UCLA stay.

    UCLA Medical Center will be firing at least 13 employees and is disciplining others, including physicians, for looking at Britney Spears's medical files, the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Spears, 26, was involuntary hospitalized at the campus's psych ward for one week beginning Jan. 31, after her doctor made the request.

    But the records reviewed by those who are targeted for dismissal were from previous hospitalizations at UCLA, the Times reports. The dates and purposes of those hospitalizations weren't known.

    UCLA officials declined to comment on the reported firings, but said in a statement: "UCLA Health System considers patient confidentiality a critical part of our mission of teaching, research and patient care. ... We have stringent policies to protect patient confidentiality and address violations of those policies."

    Britney Spears has received a third nomination for the MTV Video Music Awards as speculation mounts about her appearing at the event following her calamitous comeback last year.

    Nominations for various categories are slowly being announced by MTV, with those for Video of the Year and Best Rock Video announced on Friday.


    Spears was named as one of five candidates for the Video of the Year award, for her single 'Piece of Me'. She has already been nominated for the same video clip in the Best Female Video and Best Pop Video categories.


    The US singer will face competition in the Video of the Year category from Jonas Brothers' 'Burnin' Up', Chris Brown's 'Forever', Pussycat Dolls' 'When I Grow Up' and the Ting Tings' 'Shut Up and Let Me Go'.


    Meanwhile, Paramore's 'CrushCrushCrush', Slipknot's 'Psychosocial', Linkin Park's 'Shadow of the Day', Foo Fighters' 'The Pretender' and Fall Out Boy's cover of Michael Jackson's 'Beat It' will fight it out in the Best Rock Video category.


    Other categories announced so far include Best Male Video, Best Hip Hop Video, Best New Artist and Best Dancing in a Video.


    The 25th MTV Video Music Awards will take place in Los Angeles on 7 September, though neither the broadcaster or Spears has yet confirmed whether the star will again use the live show as a platform for another comeback.


    Last year Spears gave an ill-fated and critically-mauled performance of her song 'Gimme More'.


    The star has appeared in a number of recent promotional videos for the upcoming awards show, which will be hosted by British comedian Russell Brand.

    After a tumultuous relationship with paparazzo Adnan Ghalib and a heartbreaking divorce from Kevin Federline, Britney Spears has found somebody new and her family approves.

    Confirming Internet rumors, a source tells PEOPLE that Spears, 27, is romantically involved with her agent, Jason Trawick. "They are totally and definitely dating," the source says. "Her dad loves him. He's the best thing that happened to her."

    In recent months, Trawick has often been photographed with the pop star, including during her May trip to the Bahamas with her sons, Preston, 3, and Jaden, 2.

    "They're very sweet together," the source says, adding that Spears "always had a crush" on Trawick, who is also one of her brother Bryan's best friends. "He makes Britney really happy, and he's great with the boys."

    Spears's rep had no comment.

    Britney Spears

    Biography for
    Britney Spears More at IMDbPro
    advertisementDate of Birth
    2 December 1981, Kentwood, Louisiana, USA


    Birth Name
    Britney Jean Spears


    Nickname
    Brit
    Pinkey
    The Princess of Pop


    Height
    5' 4" (1.63 m)


    Mini Biography
    Britney Jean Spears was born in rural Louisiana (Kentwood) on December 2, 1981, to Jamie and Lynne Spears. As a child, Britney attended dance classes, and she was great at gymnastics, winning many competitions and the like. But, most of all, Britney loved to sing. At age 8, Britney tried out for "MMC" (1989), but was turned down due to her young age. This directed her to an off-Broadway show, "Ruthless", for a 2-year run as the title character. At age 11, she again tried for "MMC" (1989) and this time made it as a mouseketeer along side many stars of today (Justin Timberlake and J.C. Chasez of N*Sync and Ryan Gosling). Her big break, however, came when she was signed as a Jive Recording Artist in the late 90s. With the release of her debut album, "...Baby One More Time" in early 1999, Britney became an international success, selling 13 million copies of "Baby" and 9 million (as of July 2001) of her sophomore album, "Oops!...I Did It Again," released in May of 2000.
