Britney in rehab for 3rd time in a week

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Britney Spears' in-again out-again rehab saga found her back in a Malibu facility on Thursday, halting an emergency court hearing in which estranged husband Kevin Federline planned to discuss custody of their two children.

Celebrity Web sites reported that the pop singer returned late on Wednesday to the Promises rehabilitation center, which she had fled earlier in the day after less than 24 hours of treatment.

Spears' spokesman did not return calls for comment on the reports, which followed a turbulent week that has seen one of the world's best-known pop stars in and out of rehab three times and shaving her own head.

The Web site of syndicated TV show Extra said there was video showing her driving through the gates of the luxury Promises center with her mother.

Other reports said Spears returned after seeking a meeting with Federline on Wednesday but being denied entry to the house where he is staying with their children, Jayden James, 5 months old, and Sean Preston, 17 months old.

Spears filed for divorce in November after two years of marriage and both she and Federline are seeking custody.

Several reports said Spears returned for a full 30-45 days of treatment after Federline gave her a last chance to get help or risk losing custody of the children.

Los Angeles County Superior Court spokesman Allan Parachini said the family court was notified on Wednesday that papers requesting a hearing on the children could be filed. But Parachini said Federline's lawyers had called to say no court action would be held on Thursday.

"Kevin continues to be a very focused father with his children's best interests at heart," said a statement from Mark Vincent Kaplan, read by the lawyer's publicist, Michael Sands.
