It looks like Britney Spears still has problems being in the public eye.
The Hit Me Baby One More Time singer, who had a public breakdown seven years ago, reportedly felt the pressure of being at Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Oscar-viewing party, so she made a quick exit just minutes after arriving.
“Britney was excited when she first went to the party but moments later she was fazed about being at such an over-crowded event. She started to break out in a sweat and become short of breath, it was like she was having a panic attack,” revealed a close source.
The mum-of-two shaved her head in 2001 after a breakdown that lead to her losing custody of her two kids Sean Preston, eight, and Jayden James, seven.
The source added: “Britney still finds large crowds nerve-wracking and doesn’t feel comfortable at showbiz events.”
