Britney Spears has finished her nearly one-month stint in rehab and has left the facility.

Spears “has been released by the Promises Malibu Treatment Center after successfully completing their program,” her manager, Larry Rudolph, said in a statement late Tuesday night.

A friend says the 25-year-old pop star “is doing fine.”

She voluntarily checked herself into Promises on Feb. 20 after a weekend of hard partying in which she shaved her head. She briefly left the program the next day – only to return when estranged husband Kevin Federline threatened a custody battle over their two boys.

Since then, Spears has attended Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, though her one-month stay was shorter than most. A typical stint at Promises is about 45 days.

Federline has visted her in rehab several times with their sons, most recently last weekend, and has been described as supportive of her recovery.

Currently, Spears has custody of the boys with visitation for Federline. While she was in rehab, Federline took care of the children with help from his mother and Spears’s mother.

Others rooting for Spears’s recovery include Brooke Shields, who told Access Hollywood, amid speculation that Spears may be suffering from postpartum depression, that she’d be available to talk to the singer anytime.

And music producer Timbaland, who has crafted hits for Spears’s ex-boyfriend, Justin Timberlake, tells Entertainment Weekly that he’d like to work with Spears once she’s better.


Hey guys. Congratulate Britney by writing her a letter! I made a new layout for the project, including a few previews of what the fanbook will look like. The deadline is not for some time, so I encourage you to submit a letter (even if you are from outside the U.S.). I have received over 300 emails about this project, and I encourage you guys to keep asking questions, and submitting letters (hand-written only). You won’t want to miss this!

ps – happy birthday Kevin
