Pop star Britney Spears met with a lawyer in West Hollywood, California, yesterday afternoon, after checking out of a Malibu rehab facility earlier in the day.
This is the second time the troubled 25-year-old has left a treatment center in the last week.
The “Toxic” star was spotted at the law office of Blair Berk, a high-powered criminal defense lawyer, who also represented Mel Gibson last year after his drunk-driving arrest.
Sources tell Us Weekly magazine Spears was seen outside the office sitting in the passenger seat of a blue Mercedes talking intensely on her cell phone, while her cousin, Allie Sims, reportedly sobbed.
Spears left the law office at 2 p.m. (local time) and was driven down Los Angeles’ Sunset Strip and dropped off at the Bel Air Hotel.
On Feb. 15, the singer checked herself into Crossroads Center, a treatment facility founded by musician Eric Clapton, and checked out less than 24 hours later.
Yesterday she left Promises Treatment Center in Malibu, also after less than 24 hours.
