Britney Spears Leaves Rehab to Join Iraq Debate

Washington (Ucs news) — Britney Spears was the subject of intense media scrutiny Friday: Had the 25-year-old pop star checked in — and quickly out of — rehab? When will she release the much awaited “Britney Plan for peace in Iraq”?

Larry Rudolph, Spears’ manager, stated Friday that Britney Spears left the Crossroads Rehabilitation Center aboard a private jet headed for Washington D.C. According to Rudolph Britney was to address to a joint session of Congress.

Syndicated entertainment TV show “Extra” first reported that Spears, who has drawn criticism for her recent support of the President, had entered a treatment facility. Celebrity Web site TMZ.com then said the singer had entered a treatment center but had checked out one day later. Neither revealed their sources.

In a statement to the Press to Rudolph explained that Spears has devoted many hours studying the Iraq conflict. “I know Britney has a bad reputation as a ‘Party Girl’ but, people close to her know she is deeply involved in the ongoing crisis in Iraq.” Unconfirmed sources report that Britney secretly entered rehabilitation so she could complete the final recommendations of the “Britney Plan for peace in Iraq”?

People magazine’s Web site, citing “a source,” said Spears had gone in and out of rehab, and identified the facility as Eric Clapton’s Crossroads center in Antigua, in the Caribbean.

Rudolph stated “I expect that after Britney addresses the US congress she will de-brief the President, or the President may try to de-brief Britney.”
