Britney Spears’s involuntary stay at an LA hospital has been extended to 14 days, People reports. The order came from the pop star’s psychiatrist, but Spears, who’s being held in a padded room in the psychiatric unit, could be released earlier on orders from a judge or her doctor. “It is a terrible situation,” said a well-placed source.
“Her family is so worried about her.” Spears, plagued by rumors of drug abuse and involved in a nasty child custody suit, was admitted to the hospital last week for her second visit in less than a month. Tomorrow, Spears’s legal team will try to remove her father as her co-conservator because she “feels hatred” toward him, TMZ says.
