Britney Spears went from being an innocent girl in 'The Mickey Mouse Club' to a controversy stirring pop sensation in her teens. Unfortunately, her adult life has been dominated by personal and public turmoil and we have had a front row seat to all of the drama.
From the sweet teen romance with Justin Timberlake, we have since seen her face drug allegations from former husband Kevin Federline during a nasty custody battle for her children. She also went from being one of the most respected singers and dancers in the world to making bizarre public scenes, like shaving her head in front of rabid paparazzi in an apparent cry for help. And who can forget the images of her in a confused and disoriented state while being put in an ambulance on a stretcher in front of her home? And she recently has been accused by a former manager of using crystal meth.
