Britney's Breakdown -- Tears and Possible Jail Time

Britney's Breakdown -- Tears and Possible Jail Time

From bad… to worse.

Britney Spears broke down into tears as she entered her lawyer’s office on Friday in Los Angeles.

“She pulled up in the car, and then suddenly tears started streaming down her face,” one eyewitness tells OK!.

Brit received news from the Los Angeles City Attorney that she was charged with one count of hit-and-run causing property damage and driving without a valid license.

“According to the DMV, Ms. Spears was never issued a California license – ever,” City Attorney’s spokesman Frank Mateljan told People.

This all stems from a fender-bender in a Los Angeles parking lot on August 6 (video here).

Brit faces a maximum sentence of 6 months in jail for each of the two misdemeanors. A hearing is set for October 10 in Van Nuys Superior Court.

    Wow…that’s all I’ve got…

  • Maia

    Poor nothing. We all saw her hit the other person’s car, get out, check her own car, and then carry on about her business as if the world revolves around her. She consciously made the decision to leave the scene after hitting someone’s car, without notifying the other person. Trash.

  • Purple Gem

    I feel for her.

    Wow.
    Let the whole world have her phone number and contact information.
    THAT would work real well. [/not]
    Seriously that’s like Brad Pitt putting his number on a billboard.
    You seriously doubt that people would scoop up any information she would place on the vehicle to contact her?

    People are crazy. I would not doubt that someone would be so rude to publish her number or whatever.

  • Purple Gem

    I remember when little girls looked up to her, men salivating at her presence, she had Justin, Xtina was 2nd fiddle to her, and then she just threw it all away. So sad.

  • emch

    Stupid Fool – With all that money but no brain! She deserves all this…. almost like she asked for it. Grow up girl!! How are you going to be a good example to your kids? BYE BYE Britney…you’re gonna be just – HISTORY…

    You know you are one fcuk up individual, happy and wishing a person slit their wrists. Jesus, what is wrong with you people?

    It is disturbing and sub-human to find joy in someone’s misery or meltdown.

  • So Sad

    Yeah, she screwed up her life, made bad decisions. It’s so sad to see her reap what she sowed. I hope she really takes these trying times in her life and learns from them. Inspite of it all, I do feel sympathy for her. Sympathy because it seems like it’s so hard for her to see her own mistakes and to turn herself around.

    It makes me sad to see her cry. I hope she turns things around soon.

  • Frenchy

    Forget about a comeback or even a career. Se’s made enough money t never have to work in her life again. Take care of you Britney. Your babies need you. I was never a fan but I’m not a fan of people going thru turmoil.

  • anon

    I am not a Britney fan but I do feel for her. Seeing how things started to unravel after the birth of her second child, I feel she might be going through a pretty severe case of PPD (postpartum depression). She really needs to seek therapy above all else.
    I don’t want the next headline to include her name and “suicide” right after.
    Though she is a celebrity and it seems like we can laugh and make fun of her all we want, she is a daughter, sister, friend, and mother. I feel for them too, most especially her boys, as I am sure it is just heartbreaking to see her go through this and not knowing what to do, ontop of the paparazzi and public watching your every move and seemingly watching to taunt and not support them.
    After my own son’s birth, I had a period of ‘babyblues’ but thankfully I had the love and support of my family, and not the prying eyes of the paparazzi or the scandal hungry tabloids. If they were added to the equation, it might be hard for me to overcome that period as well.
    Why not show our support for her, not her behavior but her person so her children will get their mother back and her family, the Britney they have missed.

  • Jennie

    sad to hear. i hate how every time she seems to be getting back on track, something else just hits her. like people are out to get her.

  • trailer trash

    she has so many chances to turn her life around and what did she do. time and time again, she fcuk it up. if she doesn’t care about herself, think of her children. how can you fcuking people feel sorry for a woman who doesn’t give a shit about her life. there are people out there who need more help than she does. all brit does is show her virgina, party, get drunk, shave her head to get attention, and a bunch of non-sense shit. she is pathetic. she brought all of that shit upon herself. i don’t feel sorry for her. i do feel sorry for her kids. if she doesn’t wake up now for her kids sake than she deserve everthing that’s happening to her.

  • anon

    I don’t really feel sorry for her because the whole thing was completely avoidable. I saw the video of the hit and run, and she was completely selfish–she didn’t care at all that she hit another person’s car

  • Fug Face Man!ston

    LOSER! say bye bye to the kiddies

  • sarah

    oh wow…am speechles
    feel bad 4 her =[

    Why the pity for Britney, when she trashed someone else’s car, and left the scene without legally (and respectfully) reporting it to the owner?

    The law needs to intervene to STOP Britney for her OWN SAKE, at the very least. I kid you not, this girl is going to kill herself, and will take her kids with her. Believe it.

  • Ruth

    I agree with Anon (18). Britney has severe problems which need treatment now before a tragedy happens. This is beyond just a bad performance or numerous photos of her backside – she needs help. First off, it would be good if the pap’z would just leave her alone, but we all know that this isn’t going to happen. I hope that she will accept the help of her family and friends before something really bad takes place.

  • n

    I’ve never been a fan of Britney, but it is becoming clear that she has some serious mental issues. She seems like she is on the verge of a nervous breakdown and I hope that she gets the help she so obviously needs. Hopefully, the people that surround her will be more worried about saving her life than her career.

  • gayle

    I hope someone is paying attention otherr than the papparazzi…this girl is a suicide waiting to happen…everyone says where is mom??….where the hell is DAD too? SOMEBODY help this girl before it is too late…

  • dancingqueen

    How fcuking stupid is this chick? How hard would it have been to just leave a note or have someone follow up with the order driver?

    On a different note, when did it become required to have a license in each state you live in? Maybe she has a license for a different state, like Louisiana.

  • lola

    PLS STOP BASHING HER, I’M NOT A FAN OF HER, BUT I THINK WHAT SHE NEEDS IS HELP(PHYSICAL,EMOTIONAL,SPIRITUAL) LOTS OF HELP, SHE DOES NOT NEED BASHING NOR JUDGEMENTS BUT PRAYERS…SHE HAS HIS KIDS AND WITH THAT CHARGES SHE COULD LOOSE THEM, JUST PUT YOURSELF IN HER SITUATION AS A MOTHER, THAT WILL LOOSE HER CHILDREN IF SHE DOES NOT CHANGE FOR THE BETTER…SHE IS ALSO A HUMAN BEING LIKE US, WE MAKE MISTAKES BUT WE DO NOT GET OUT FROM IT BUT RATHER WE CORRECT IT..PEACE OUT!!!

    Are you serious? She has lawyers, so she could have easily left someone else’s number instead of her own. She has had so many chances, and there is no explanation good enough to justify leaving the scene of a car accident. EVER!!!!!!

    I don’t really hate her but I think she deserve it. She destroy herself.

  • jess

    why can’t people just leave her alone so she can get some help without being made to look like a fool? maybe if everyone backs off she can try and straighten herself out

    FIRST TIME RELEASED TO PUBLIC! AN ABSOLUTE MUST SEE! …

    THE MOST DISGUSTING PICTURE OF BRITNEY AND K-FED WHILE SHE’S STILL PREGNANT WITH ONE OF THE ‘MISTAKES’ ….

    WARNING, YOU MIGHT HURL AFTER SEEING THIS:
    http://www.blessedbirthservices.com/images/DebandJames.jpg

    ================================================================

    that pic is not the brit and kfed, i look very closely, it don’t look like them, ne1?

  • bataglio

    she needs help in the worst way
    not everyone can handle the beast that is fame
    she should take the $ and her kids and get the heck out of that plastic hell

  • jq

    That’s the problem of getting famous at a very early age without the proper guidance. She seems really loss. Where is her parents ?

  • bob

    SHE WON’T GET JAIL TIME. THIS IS A FIRST TIME OFFENSE THAT HONESTLY ISN’T THAT MAJOR. I’M A PROSECUTOR (ITS SAD THAT I’M ON HERE I KNOW BUT I’M BORED). WITH NO RECORD AND A MINOR TRAFFIC ACCIDENT WHERE THERE IS LITTLE DAMAGE AND NO ONE IS HURT, SHE MIGHT NOT EVEN GET PROBATION. SHE MAY JUST GET A FINE. IF NICOLE RITCHIE ONLY GETS A FEW HOURS IN JAIL FOR GOING THE WRONG WAY DOWN A FREE WAY WHILE ON PAIN PILLS AND WEED, THEN BRITNEY ISN’T GOING TO JAIL FOR BASICALLY SCRATCHING A PARKED CAR. LOOK AT THE VIDEO, LOL, SHE DIDN’T SMASH INTO IT AND DO MAJOR DAMAGE LOL.

  • yo

    Some of you people are being seriously cruel! I think childhood fame can really fcuk with your head…. would you blame a person who suffers from cancer or kidney disease? It’s the exact same thing with a mental illness. And I think it’s clear that poor Britney has something a little wrong upstairs. Poor girl.

  • kathy

    No one should have to go thru all this so soon… God bless U Brit i will keep you in my prayers.

  • John

    POOR BRITNEY! SHE IS NOT TRAILER TRASH! STOP CALLING HER THAT!! SHE DOESNT NEED HELP EITHER! SHE JUST NEEDS A BREAK!! LEAVE HER ALONE!

  • nena

    this is such a bad website, they have no idea what they are talking about, they don’t know why she is crying, and she is NOT going to have probable jail time, when it was just a minor scrape and she was surrounded by the paps when she hit the car, and she probably didn’t even know she did damage to the other car, or realized that she was supposed to leave a note, but it will hardly be jailtime, we don’t live in a police state. what a joke, and what bad journalism, this is such a twisting of the truth, believe me, Jared has NO idea why she is crying and it is irresponsible to make a headlines like that, she may be irresponsible, but Jared is MUCH worse. besides, after viewing the videotape of her hitting the other car, the paps just took advantage of the whole thing, if they get her coffee for her, and ask her if she is ok, they may as well notify her that she should leave a note, what a bunch of dumb hypocrites, what a horrible world is the celebrity gossip columnists, jeepers.

  • wow

    this is sad.

  • jd

    People do need to leave her alone. The girl really needs some space. And help.

  • Heroes

    I’m annoyed with Britney, but as wild as she’s been, I still feel for her. I can’t help it, I don’t like to see her cry because I know it’s not for show. If this is what it’s going to take to make her get her act together then good.

  • flo

    I agree w/#38…u r probably right.

  • bitsy

    i posted a couple of days ago that Britney took the last straw from me on giving her more chances. After seeing the above picture of her breaking down and it literally is breaking my heart, I look at her and see that it could my daughter or if any of you are old at all on this site, perhaps your daughter. But mosst daughters have someone to turn to. Who really does Britney have anymore. Her parents seemed from the get go to take Kevins side without trying to help poor Britney. She really can’tdo anything right, it’s either this way or that. However, the paps want to spin it. She doesn’t know how to be normal, she did not grow up that way. Justin lied on Oprah the other day saying he had not talked to her in years, when documented interviews say otherwise. He is supposedly supposed to to care about her as a person. She needs help and most of all, love but by who? Who can she trust anymore. She can’t do anything without someone spying on her and reporting this and reporting that, all for money they get for their stories. Surely, someone she used to love and respect can help her. Britney it will be all OK soon. If you look at the worst is over scenario then maybe it can be. God love ya Britney

  • what goes around comes around

    in most states if you are going to reside/live/move from one state to another and have an out of state license you have so many days/months to switch it over. Britney has lived in Cali.,for awhile now.

    I notice when she hit the other persons car she asked” is my car okay”?.never checked the other persons car/as said before- no note. what was weird also was a pap asked her to sit back or stoop down or something and she was in a dress, which when bending one could look up her dress,the paps were snapping away at it,they knew they may have gotten a panty/vayjay pic. and she didnt close her legs, or put her hand up to cover the gap or anything. i can believe she calls the paps.

    BRITNEY KNEW she did not have a Cali.,license and that is why she did not call the cops, when you can clearly hear a pap say something related to calling the cops.

    thats some curse someone put on Britney

  • sarah

    poor brit shes a human as well everyone would do the same thing if they were going through the same things as her but noone understand her problems. I hate the paparazzi’s they would do anything to get their money even if they have to mess up a celebrities life they are all bastards who needs to fuk off. I don’t get the fact that vanessa hudgens took a naked pictures of her self but everyone still supported her even her fans (which she dont deserve) but britney now that her lifes messed up because of the papparazzi shes doing things to calm herself and her fans and everyone else act like she gone mentle and they are not even supporting her.

  • jolie

    please I feel sorry for her,leave this girl alone she is too young to go through all these things by herself.

  • E

    britney is not going to kill herself. she loves attention, men, sex, money and she has her boys to live for. she loves life
