Britney Spears has reportedly checked herself back into rehab.

According to reports, the troubled pop princess voluntarily made her way to an undisclosed rehabilitation facility yesterday, after pressure from her family and friends.

Her publicist has refused to tell media what the star is being treated for.

"Britney Spears has voluntarily checked herself into an undisclosed rehab facility today," said her publicist Larry Rudolph.

"We ask that the media respect her privacy as well as those of her family and friends at this time."

A bald Britney has been surrounded paparazzi since she took the drastic step of shaving her own head last Friday. The singer and mother-of-two shaved off her own hair after a hairdresser refused to do it for her.

Her night continued at a tattoo parlour where she had two small tattoos inked onto her body.

Despite going bald, Britney continued partying over the weekend, being spotted by a number of paparazzi wearing a blonde wig.

Many reports had claimed that the pop princess was on the verge of a breakdown, her life spiralling downwards since her split with husband Kevin Federline last November.
