From the top of her game to being snapped at her lowest moments, it's been a long hard fall for Britney Spears. The International popstar and Grammy-award winner leapt into the music industry at just eighteen with her debut album Baby One More Time.
Since then her personal life has gained immense media interest which some say has been the cause of her breakdown this year. We take a look at some of the key moments in her life and wish her well on the road to recovery.
From the outside she was the pop princess envied by all of her hollywood peers. After four years together, Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears split up in 2002.
Drinking, partying and drinking some more with childhood sweetheart Jason Allen Alexander was only ever going to end one way.
In a flash they were married and then fifty-five hours later Britney Spears and childhood friend Jason Allen Alexander annulled their impromptu wedding at The Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas.
Their two sons Sean Preston and Jayden James were born in 2005 and 2006 respectivelyBritney filed for divorce in November 2006, citing irreconcilable differences and asking for both physical and legal custody of their two children.
Federline immediately requested physical and legal custody of their children and hence the battle began.
It could only be a cry for help but there were numerous interpretations of why the singer would have shaved off her hair.
It certainly wasn't a new trend and for many it highlighted the pain that the young mum was feeling.
Having shaved her head and then initiated an unsuccesful reconciliation with K-Fed, Britney made an attempt at suicide whilst in rehab.
Worried fans and close friends realised then how serious the situation had become and feared for her safety.
Loyal fans questioned who would be the best parent afterall and almost everyone had an opinion on what would happen next.
When a judge awarded sole custody of Britney Spears' two children to ex-husband Kevin Federline, suspending the singer's visitation rights, all hell broke loose.
Britney refused to hand her sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James, over to the children's father.
A mountain of problems have snowballed over the year and knocked Britney off her feet. Her world's been turned upside down, and having hit rock bottom the only way is now up. Finally she may get the help she's been desperately in need of as she has been rushed to a psychiatric ward
