Psychiatric Lockdown #2

Last night, Britney Spears' new psychiatrist went to her home and felt she was a danger to herself and others -- partly because of her reckless driving and partly because of her "downhill behavior." As a result, the shrink launched a plan (days in the making) to have Britney committed to UCLA Medical Center by calling the cops.

Sources say the cops knew it was coming. In fact, the plan was for cops and paramedics to take Britney away the night before, but it was scrubbed. Last night, it all went down according to plan. Cops even used code to minimize craziness in transporting Britney to the hospital. Over the police radio, she was referred to as "The Package."

Before the cops arrived, the shrink told her she was going back to the hospital and she offered no resistance. She said, "Is something wrong?" She made hot chocolate and waited. Her mom, Lynne, got extremely agitated, accusing Sam of engineering the impending commitment. We're told Brit told her to "shut the hell up." She demanded silence, sat on the floor and wrote notes to people who were there as they waited. When emergency personnel arrived, Brit went on the gurney without resistance.

When everyone arrived at UCLA, things got heated. Jamie Spears began screaming at Sam Lutfi, accusing him of trying to control Britney. We're told as far as the doctors are concerned -- at least for now -- Lynne and Jamie Spears are not calling the shots. The point guy for the docs is Brit's friend, Sam Lutfi.

Sources say after Britney's commitment earlier this month, she was extremely upset at her dad for getting angry at Sam and the hospital staff. Britney had lawyers draft several documents, however, she did not sign a durable power of attorney giving Lutfi the power to make medical decisions on her behalf. Nevertheless, something was signed and doctors are going to Lutfi for guidance. Jamie went off on Lutfi in the hallway, accusing him of trying to control his daughter.

Britney has been calm in the hospital, even getting a "cigarette break."

During the initial 72-hour stay she cannot be forced to take medication against her will. If, however, she refuses to take the meds, the plan is for the psychiatrist to go to court and have Britney held for an additional 14 days, during which time he could administer proper medications.

TMZ has some video clips.

Classy Guy

Adnan Ghalib, the creepy paparazzo who weaseled his way into pop wreck Britney Spears' life, has not only tried to score extra money by selling videos and photos of Spears crying - he also participated in a test survey of male "enhancement" products. Ghalib is in a group of 12 men who tried out various products touted on the Internet at SexHealthReview.com.

On the site, Ghalib is identified by a photo and his name, "Adnan G," and lists his occupation as "filmmaker." Ghalib notes, "I work in 'the' industry in Los Angeles, and I know many of my friends use these products. Thought this would be an interesting opportunity to reveal the truth to many men worldwide."

Meanwhile, he's trying to maintain his tenuous grip on Spears . Monday night, he was denied entry to her LA home by her "manager," Sam Lutfi, who accused him in a series of text messages of being a "trigger" to her mania. Ghalib eventually got to Spears and drove her around after she had another fight with her mother, Lynne, and Lutfi, who are trying to get her to seek psychiatric help.

Romo Serenades Jess

“Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey has been ruined many a time at karaoke nights around the country. Tony Romo belted out the old favorite and is pictured singing it to Jessica Simpson at Key Club in LA on Monday.

Eventually, the audience coaxed the Dallas Cowboys quarterback to the stage. Romo’s pick: Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing.” As he belted out the hit, Simpson alternated between kissing him on the cheek, wrapping her arms around him and staring dreamily into his eyes. “He was singing directly to her — and she was on cloud nine,” a witness said.

TMZ even has audio and video. Click here. Check out the chant to get him on stage. Ha! Of course, the ever-so-worthless and annoying Ken Paves is there clinging on to her. Oh, and watch long enough to listen to him butcher "Sweet Child O Mine."

Lindsay Parties On

Lindsay Lohan "took a swig of vodka from a bottle of Grey Goose" at the Box Friday night as she partied with Stavros Niarchos, her deejay pal Samantha Ronson, Brody Jenner, and "an entourage of blond 20-somethings," a witness says. Lohan was "trying to keep a low profile and covering her face." Lohan and Niarchos then stopped by West 17th Street spot 1 Oak, where "Lindsay wasn't drinking," say sources, before returning to the Four Seasons Hotel, where they spent the night. Lohan's rep had no comment.

What a Wimp

Kathy Griffin was re-banned from a show. "I was supposed to be on 'The View' [today]," said Griffin, who performs her final sold-out stand-up show tonight at Madison Square Garden. "But then I get a call from [producer] Bill Geddie, and he says, 'You were too mean to Barbara [Walters] on your last special, so you can't come on.' Can you believe it? I've been banned before but never re-banned!" Griffin does a spot-on impersonation of Walters, but she didn't insult the TV legend any more than usual on her last special for Bravo.

Babs needs to toughen up. Personally, I think Kathy is hilarious.

Shrek Is Coming to Broadway

Shrek is to be made into a Broadway musical.

The stage version of the DreamWorks animated film will open in Seattle in August before moving to New York. The movie was a huge hit on its release in 2001 and went on to spawn two sequels, with a third scheduled for release in 2010.

Show director Jason Moore has been working on the project for three years and said it will reveal more about central characters Shrek, Donkey and Princess Fiona than the original film.

Perez Wins!

Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton won the $85,000 lawsuit brought against him by Lindsay Lohan pal and disc jockey, Samantha Ronson. Samantha sued Perez after he said she planted cocaine on Lindsay Lohan leading to her arrest. Lawyers for Perez argued he was protected by free speech, even if it was a lie. The suit was dropped, but Perez sued Samantha for repayment of legal fees…and won.

Samantha’s lawyers claim the fees were too excessive and should be more than $13,000 or $14,000 but the judge ordered Samantha to pay the fees anyway. And Perezzers intends to collect. Perez Hilton will take steps to make sure every dime is collected," said his lawyer, Bryan J. Freedman. "This should make one careful before filing a lawsuit against him."

The Fotog Breaks His Silence

Britney Spears' paparazzo boy toy, Adnan Ghalib, says he's been having sex with the whacked-out pop tart and believes she wants to have his baby. Acknowledging that Spears bought herself a pregnancy test, the lensman tells tonight's "Entertainment Tonight" and "The Insider": "She has a very maternal instinct. She was feeling a lot of things she said she felt when she was pregnant. I think she was hoping she was pregnant with my child." Ghalib insists Spears is not suicidal and that her on-again, off-again British accent is perfectly normal. "She just thinks it's cute," he said.

Ghalib denied Spears has taken out a restraining order against him. In fact, he'd be ready to marry Britney. "I'd be lying if I said no," he gushes, adding their relationship is "far from over."

Ghalib's wife, Azlynn, apparently agrees that's the case. She filed papers yesterday to formally separate from her husband of four years, citing "irreconcilable differences."

The Big Noms

Get ready! The Oscar nominations will be announced later this morning. I'll post the list later.

I saw "No Country for Old Men" yesterday. Wow. If you're easily rattled, I wouldn't recommend it. However, I thought it was fabulous. All 3 leads--Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin, and Tommy Lee Jones were acting perfection.
