In January 2008, Britney Spears was placed under two involuntary psychiatric holds. The first hold was the result of a child custody dispute. The second hold immediately precipitated a conservatorship request by her father, Jamie Spears. The podcast Eat, Pray, Britney provides a retrospective summary of the incidents in their third episode, "5150".
