There’s just so much you can do to help a person – I don’t dare want to be an enabler, and I cannot love her enough for the both of us. I cannot convince her in ANY way to love herself. All I can do is be a friend, someone that loved her for MANY years unconditionally, and PRAY. That, I have decided is the most and best I can do for my friend. I cannot save her from herself, nor can I commit her to any type of treatment program against her wishes and will. I am throwing my hands up and realising that I am helpless.”

ANDERSON: Breaking Britney Spears news. Tonight, did she really check into rehab? Plus, the alarming letter written to Britney from someone very close to her. The stunning warning that`s in it. SHOWBIZ TONIGHT investigates… 

LEVIN: …There`s been concern for a while now about her -- and -- for at least several months. And it`s been growing and growing and growing (since she filed for divorce)… And I think that`s when everybody got alarmed and got involved. CARROLL: I`m wondering how this might effect her ongoing custody battle with Kevin Federline regarding their two kids, Sean (ph) Preston and Jaden (ph) . They`ve been trying to work out custody arrangements on a month-to-month base. I`m wondering could Britney`s behavior give Federline more ammunition to get custody of the children?

LEVIN: Absolutely. Ultimately, a judge will have to sign off on this custody order. If she has a substance abuse problem she`s unwilling to fix, you know, that could have a big impact on any kind of a custody contest…

HARVEY LEVIN, MANAGING EDITOR, TMZ.COM: Hey, Jason. CARROLL: Harvey, you guys broke that story that Britney Spears checked in, and checked out of rehab 24 hours later. People.com is now reporting she checked herself into Eric Clapton`s Crossroads Center in Antigua. What else can you tell us about this?

LEVIN: Well, just to correct, "Extra!" broke the story that she was in rehab. We broke the story that she lasted less than 24 hours. What happened was family members, basically, staged an intervention and convinced her to go over there and do it. And she just didn`t want to have any part of it. And as of an hour ago, at least, she was in the air flying home to Los Angeles.

Feb. 16, 2007 - Around 7 pm, Britney shaves her head, and then sits for a new tattoo, leaving the studio around 9 pm. Britney then attacks a paparazzo's car with an umbrella after standing outside of the home of Kevin Federline, demanding to see their two infant sons.

Feb. 20, 2007 - According to Lynne Spears, “Right before Britney went into Promises, after she shaved her head, I got an anonymous call from a man while I was driving in Los Angeles. There are drugs planted in Britney’s Malibu home,” he said, going on to tell me that it was a conspiracy between Kevin and Britney’s assistants to make my daughter look like a bad mother.” Two paragraphs later, Lynne admits that the man who called about the drugs was Sam Lutfi.

Reading this it looks like the headshaving and the umbrella incident happened on the same night, but at least according to the New York Times in Framing Britney Spears, the umbrella thing it happened 5 days later, on February 21st. (I'm sorry I can't pull up any other sources right now about the dates)

If that's what they said, they got it wrong.

It definitely happened on the night of Friday, February 16, 2007.

Yeah I know the haircut happened on February 16. Perhaps I phrased it wrong, I didn't mean to say it ALL happened on the 21st, only that the umbrella thing happened 5 days later:

February 16: She goes to the hair salon+tattoo parlor.

February 21: Goes with Alli Sims to KFed's house, is rejected, then nicks the idiot paparazzo's car with the umbrella.

Oh, ****! You're right!

I couldn't find an original source that was from 2007 — they were all written 10 years later, looking back in retrospect.

But I just found one from 2007, and it gives extra details that might help nail down which night Lynne drugged her...And on first glance I don't think it was the night of the umbrella.

According to an USA Today timeline, this is how it went down

Feb. 16, 2007 - Spears is seen at a hair salon in Tarzana, Calif., shaving her head. Later, she was seen at a tattoo parlor getting inked on her hip and wrist. The "makeover" came the same day as reports on TV and Web sites that Spears, who has drawn criticism for her recent partying and sloppy behavior, had briefly checked into rehab at a treatment center in Antigua. Hair purportedly clipped from her head is now for sale on eBay.

Feb. 20, 2007 - Spears checks into a Los Angeles in-patient facility following a bizarre weekend that included shaving her head and getting new tattoos.

Feb. 21, 2007 - Britney, 25, returns to the Promises Malibu drug and alcohol rehabilitation center late Wednesday, according to several reports. Earlier in the day, the pop star checked out of the center less than a day after checking in voluntarily. It was the second time in a week that Spears entered a rehab facility and checked out before her first day was finished.

March 20, 2007 - After nearly a month of seclusion in a luxurious rehabilitation center, Britney checks out of Promises Malibu Alcohol and Drug Rehab Treatment Facility "after successfully completing their program," her manager, Larry Rudolph, says in a statement released by Jive Records.

 

And by my own accountings, this is what else happened

Feb. 17, 2007 - Britney tries to book a hotel room but is denied. All she has is half a credit card number scribed on a piece of paper.

Feb. 21, 2007 - Britney checks out of Promises and visits Blair Berk in the morning. In the evening, Britney visits Kevin and demands to see the children. She checks in Promises again afterwards.

This is why they say that witness testimony is notoriously flimsy...I recreated that timeline from my own memory of events as it happened in February 2007, and then only started adding in the sources after I realized this thread would become useful.

My memory told me the umbrella incident happened the same night as the head shaving! 

I'm glad I made that error, though...Because otherwise I might have overlooked all of the new clues that placing the umbrella incident on a new night reveals.

So she successfully completed the program...But Kaplan isn't able to obtain records to show she completed the program?

Interesting.

Now yall have confused me.  I also thought the umbrella was the same night as the shave, was it not? The CONs are all going to put us in conservatorships for our collective faulty memory

So...let me get this straight. We have:

Feb 14: Larry drags Britney to Crossroads rehab in Antigua

Feb 15: Britney checks out and goes to Miami 

Feb 16: Britney almost misses her Miami-LA flight

            That night she decides to shave her head an get a couple tattoos.

Also, not mentioned enough: at least two people (her assistant at the time, and a friend who was interviewed this year in the Toxic podcast) have said she had previously talked about wanting to shaved her head, so this was not a spur of the moment.

Feb 17: Britney tries to check into a hotel but can't because she has lost access to her own money.

Somewhere between Feb 17-Feb 20: Sam Lutfi enters the picture, according to Lynne's book, by calling Lynne about drugs planted in Britney's home.

Feb 20, Tuesday: Britney checks into Promises, maybe forcefully after being drugged by her own mother by grinding meds into her drink (something she'd accuse Lutfi of doing a year later)

Feb 21: Britney checks out of rehab after Kevin files an ex parte court hearing to get custody of the kids, and goes straight to see Blair Berk, criminal defence attorney.

             That night, Alli Sims drives Britney to Kevin's house to see the kids. Kevin denies her entrance. Paparazzo Roberto something calls Daniel Ramos and they both follow and bother her at a gas station until she nicks their car's door with an umbrella.

             Later that night, Britney checks into Promises again, this time stays for a whole month and completes the program.

****Conflicting reports say Lynne picked her up:

Around 8:45 pm, Britney arrives at Kevin Federline's residence, asking to see their two infant sons. Kevin refuses her entry.

At 9:30 pm, Britney is picked up from Kevin Federline's house in a vehicle driven by her mother, Lynne.

At 10:20 pm, Britney and Lynne are observed to be driving around while arguing.

At 10:33 pm, Britney is driven to Promises by her mother Lynne and checks back into rehab for the third time. She enters Promises for a minimum 30-day stay.

So what's up with that? Did Lynne pick her up later that night and drive her to Promises, after Britney and Alli came back from Kevin's house+the umbrella incident? Was Kevin's refusal what made Britney finally agree to check in voluntarily and stay the whole program?

 

Btw, I'm referencing this thread a lot:

Now yall have confused me.  I also thought the umbrella was the same night as the shave, was it not? The CONs are all going to put us in conservatorships for our collective faulty memory

I'm not sure how old you are...But I'm five years older than Britney.

I watched all of this stuff happen in real time...I'm on EST but Britney was PST, and I still stayed up to watch all of the blogs update their reporting in real time.

And I still thought the head shaving and the umbrella incident happened on the same night.

I suspect Team CON has leveraged their media connections to purposely try to obfuscate the events of February 14 to 21, 2007. That goes for the five days leading up to the CON in January 2008 as well...It's bought them 13 years to operate with repercussions.

I suspect that you're right...If not Lou, then Larry, because it was Larry who hired Betty Wyman to begin with. At least that's the way it appears from his deposition.

The records were likely withheld because of what they showed when Britney checked into rehab and what they showed when she checked out.
