Is Britney Spears ready to head back to rehab?


I now hear Spears’ legal team and the few friends and family members she’s still in contact with may be urging the pop princess to—once again—check in for treatment for alleged substance-abuse issues.

It was just mid February when Spears shaved off her hair at a suburban Los Angeles salon, after spending less than 24 hours in Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Centre in Antigua. A few days later, she checked into Promises Malibu but bolted after one day. Forty-eight hours later, she returned, after Kevin Federline reportedly threatened legal action to gain full custody of their two sons.

Spears left Promises on March 20. Larry Rudolph, her manager at the time, said she was released after “successfully completing their program.”

“She has said she’ll go again,” a source tells me. “But everyone is worried she won’t go at the last minute.”

On Monday, Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Scott M. Gordon ordered Spears to undergo random drug testing in order to keep joint custody of her kids, one-year-old Jayden James and two-year-old Sean Preston. “Based on the evidence presented, the Court finds there is a habitual, frequent and continuous use of controlled substances by [Spears],” reads the order handed down by Gordon.

Spears will have to submit to two tests a week, to be given on different days of the week and at different times.

Spears' attorney did not comment.
