Britney Spears was let go from Cedars Sinai medical center because she no longer posed an imminent threat to herself as perceived by the hospital, PerezHilton.com.
The trainwreck demanded to be released, and Cedars Sinai had no choice but to let her go.
A source tells us, "It is very difficult to keep a patient in a psych ward at a hospital for longer than 24 to 48 hours. Even if you have tried to committ suicide (which Brit did not do) you are released as soon as you are no longer a threat to yourself. It is very very rare for someone to be in the psych ward of a hospital for more than a week or two even after attempting suicide."
Continues our source, "Brit is no different than other mentally ill people. After being admitted and given meds they are released if they are not a suicidal threat to themselves or others."
Spears' father, Jamie, was with Britney the morning of her release.
Britney probably left AMA (against medical advice), we're told.
A source says, "Normally, you have to have a court order or judge ruling to keep someone against their will in the hospital."
Britney's dad or lawyers should do that ASAP!!!!!!!
