Headlines exploded all over Friday, stating that pop princess Britney Spears was on suicide watch.
But now only “Extra” can reveal the truth behind the disturbing new Brit shocker. “Extra's” Jerry Penacoli got the answer straight from Britney's manager, Larry Rudolph.
“The story is absolutely untrue,” he said. “She is in rehab, and it is very disappointing that various media outlets are running these false stories about her, as Britney tries to get better.”
Spears has successfully completed two days in a row at the exclusive Promises rehab center in Malibu, after her mom dropped her off there Wednesday night.
Now “Extra” is uncovering new details about Britney's wild rampage just hours before going back to the rehab clinic.
The mother of two was wild eyed, desperate and out of control as she wielded an umbrella like a baseball bat and repeatedly struck a paparazzo's SUV.
Brit's blows were so forceful, dents to the car were visible. The photog also claims he was hit.
Spears' wild attack happened after her ex, Kevin Federline, refused to let her into his house.
“Extra” has also learned that Kevin called the cops to the house he is said to be staying with the kids just to rein in the shutterbugs.
We've also learned Federline has teamed up with former adversary, Britney's mom Lynne, who arrived at K-Fed's Tarzana home early Friday morning around the same time as Kevin's mom.
As the world waits for Britney to find herself, is it true Barbara Walters will be the first to sit down for a one on one with the pop princess?
“Let her find herself, please,” Walters said. “What I hope for Britney is that she herself recovers. She has gone through so much. That's the most important thing. Then if she does, she has a long way to go before she sits down for an interview.”
