Britney rushed to hospital again

Pop star Britney Spears has been rushed to hospital for the second time in a month.

Police escorted her ambulance to the hospital from her home in Los Angeles in the early hours of Thursday.

According to local reporters, doctors said Britney needed to go into hospital for help with her mental health.

Earlier this year, Britney was admitted to hospital after a row with police when she refused to hand her two young sons over to her ex-husband.

A court later decided that Britney wasn't allowed to visit her sons - Sean Preston, two, and one-year-old Jayden James.

They are being looked after by their dad, Kevin Federline.

Before the row, Kevin was the temporary full-time carer of the children, but Britney was still allowed to see them.
