Britney Spears ‘no longer a danger to herself’

Britney SpearsPop wreck Britney Spears was reportedly released from the psychiatric ward because she was deemed no longer a danger to herself.

Doctors at the UCLA medical centre where she was being held could not hold her against her will once they determined she did not pose a legal danger to herself or others.

Reports in the US claim the singer was released just after 11.30am LA time and is already at home behind closed doors.

Britney is reportedly stable and co-operative with doctors and her family.

However, the conservatorship is still in place which means that her father Jamie Spears and lawyer Andrew Wallet are in charge of her affairs.The conservatorship will remain in place until the next court hearing on February 14 and it is believed the doctors at UCLA were happier about releasing her now that her 'manager Sam Lutfi is out of the picture.

Lutfi has been ordered to stay away from Britney, her home and her parents after Jamie nad Lynne Spears took out a restraining order against him. In the order Lynne claimed that her daughter was drugged by her pal Sam Lutfi, a shocking restraining order against her self-confessed 'manager' claims.

The singer's mother Lynn alleges Lutfi crushes up Britney's medication and puts it in her food and "gave Britney something to make her more light-hearted" during one of their visits.

Lutfi, 33, apparently told Lynn Spears the Toxic star would kill herself if he wasn't there to administer her pills. "If you try to get rid of me she'll be dead and I'll piss on her grave," he said, according to the singer's mother.

The sensational events have been reported in a temporary restraining order filed against Lutfi by Britney's mother and her father Jamie.

The order, dated February 1 this year, instructs the 'manager' to stay at least 250 yards away from the singer, her cars, her children's school, her home, UCLA Medical Center, her parents' homes, and her siblings' homes. It also orders him not to harass or contact Britney, or try and find out where she is.

"If you do not obey these orders you can be arrested and charged with a crime. And you may have to go to jail, pay a fine of up to $1,000 or both," the LA Superior Court documents state.

The most shocking part of the legal documents is a declaration filed by Lynn Spears after she visited her daughter at her Beverly Hills home on January 28.

Lynn claims she went to see Britney with a friend called Jackie after hearing news reports that she was in tears following a fight with Lutfi.

According to the statement, when Lutfi heard Britney's mother was on her way he did everything he could to make sure she was not in the house.

He apparently told Britney her parents were coming to perform an intervention and gave a photographer the keys to one of her cars so he could get her out of the way.

When Lynn arrived and Britney finally returned home Lutfi allegedly told Lynn she must follow his instructions.

According to the court documents he said: "I'm the one who spends 24/7 with your daughter. I sleep in cars outside her house so she can't leave.

"You people throw everyone under the bus. If you don't listen to me I'm going to make your name sh*t in the papers."

Sources connected with the case say they anticipated that UCLA would probably release her before the 14-day extension because she became cooperative and relatively stable. "We're told the goal with Brit's mom and dad was to establish the conservatorship while she was hospitalized so she would return home to a controlled environment rather than the chaos that consumed her life."
