Britney Checks Out of Rehab after One Night


MALIBU, Calif. (AP) - Britney Spears left a live-in rehabilitation facility early Wednesday, less than a day after checking in, according to several reports.

It was the second time in a week that Spears entered a rehab facility and checked out within hours.

The television news magazine "The Insider" initially reported that Spears called a car service, walked out of the Promises rehabilitation center and left the facility early Wednesday morning.

Later, the TV show "Extra" and the Web site said Spears, 25, left the center far short of the usual 45-day stay.
