Britney Spears has quickly gone from pop sensation to mother in crisis " with her wild ride playing out in the tabloids and on TV. She's been photographed at Hollywood hotspots with Paris Hilton, partying without panties, impulsively shaving her head, raging at a car with an umbrella, spending a month in rehab and driving with her kids on her lap and without a valid state diver's license. Last month, a judge ordered the singer to comply with a list of orders so that she could maintain custody of her children. In recent weeks, Spears continued her happy-go-lucky ways, and failed to comply with the judge's orders. At noon yesterday, the pop star handed over her children to their father, Kevin Federline.
