2008: Britney Spears suffers from a mental breakdown in Beverly Hills, California, where she refuses to hand over her sons Jayden James and Sean Preston to their father, Kevin Federline (seen here with Spears in 2006). Spears was eventually taken to Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center via ambulance and admitted as a "special needs" patient. The following day, her visitation rights were suspended at an emergency court hearing, and Federline was given sole physical and legal custody of the children. The pop singer would eventually be committed to the psychiatric ward of Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center on an involuntary psychiatric hold and the court placed her under temporary conservatorship of her father James Spears and attorney Andrew Wallet, giving them complete control of her assets. Spears was released on Feb. 6, 2008.
