Britney Spears Collapses At NYE Bash

Looks like the New Year didn’t take off on a good start for pop princess Britney Spears. The newly single mother was hosting a New Years eve bash at club PURE in Las Vegas where she mysteriously collapsed in the VIP section just moments after she cheered in the New Years.

Sources say things were going smoothly for the pop princess who hosted two countdowns at the club, one in the inside VIP section and the second on the club’s upper outdoor terrace. Here is what went down.

She had been seated on a VIP tented-cabana bed overlooking the dance floor at 12:50AM talking with one of her male dancers. She intimated she wanted to leave and as she stood up, "she went into a dead faint and just fell right to the floor."

Her group pulled her up and lay her on the bed at the same time as her personal security asked for the club to provide at least 10 other security managers to "get her out as quickly as possible." They surrounded the stricken pop star in an attempt to screen her from all observers and the new years revelers on the crowded dance floor.

One woman in the Spears' entourage yelled, "Make sure nobody gets any photos. No photos anywhere."

When the 12-strong security phalanx was in place, two of her dancers wrapped Britney in what appeared to be a blanket-hooded poncho. Literally carrying her in both arms, they managed to propell her through the crowds and out of the club.

It appeared as if "she was being dragged as she wasn't walking under her own speed" said one eyewitness. "It looked as if they wanted to get her up to her hotel room as soon as possible."

At 2AM this morning, an ambulance was summoned to the hotel but it was totally unclear if it was brought to Caesars for Britney.

Maybe Britney mistook the mysterious white pill for advil or thought she was sniffing "pixie sticks"?

UPDATE:Britney's manager Larry Rudolph has given a explanation to the Las Vegas Review Journal about the pop stars collapse at Club PURE. "She's fine. She had been traveling all day. She got real tired. It was a late night for her. [She] wasn't drinking that much."
