Britney Spears enters rehab after bizarre behavior

AGENCIES , NEW YORK ANDLOS ANGELES

Britney Spears has entered a rehabilitation center, her spokesman said on Tuesday, after the troubled pop star's recent wild ways escalated this weekend to a bizarre incident in which she shaved her own head.

Spears' manager, Larry Rudolph, told People magazine's Web site that Spears, 25, had voluntarily checked herself into an undisclosed treatment facility.

"We ask that the media respect her privacy as well as those of her family and friends at this time," he was quoted as saying.

The Web site TMZ.com said Spears had entered an inpatient facility in Los Angeles after family members pressed her to check in.

Since her split with husband Kevin Federline last November after two years of marriage, Spears has raised eyebrows with heavy partying, sometimes with celebrity heiress Paris Hilton, and a series of pictures that caught the singer wearing no panties under her short skirts.

But on Friday reports swirled that Spears had entered rehab on the Caribbean island of Antigua, only to drop out 24 hours later.

Later that evening she was spotted at a hair salon in Los Angeles, shaving her own head. She followed that up with a trip to a tattoo parlor and on Sunday night she was photographed heading into a West Hollywood night club wearing an ill-fitting blonde wig.
