The head shaving, the custody issues, the drug accusations – see the path that led to her most recent meltdown. By Brian Orloff


2008 gets off to a rocky start for Britney Spears: The singer is taken from her Studio City, Calif., home to an L.A. Hospital on a gurney Jan. 3. Police say she was under the influence of an unknown substance and refused to return her children to Kevin Federline after a visit. Earlier that day, the singer arrived 90 minutes late to a custody deposition after missing several past appointments.
