Britney Spears may have a personality disorder, rapper Machine Gun Kelly spits vodka into fan's mouth, Quentin Tarantino saved Eli Roth from being roofied.
Rumors of Britney Spears’ drug use and reported bipolar disorder have been extensive. But now there’s a new wrinkle in the ongoing saga of her mental health: reports surfaced today via court documents that the singer's ongoing conservatorship may be the result of a medical issue—in this case, a personality disorder.

The incident was captured on video. (Disclaimer: It’s not for those with weak stomachs.)

The actor and director Eli Roth narrowly avoided an ugly scene a few years ago when he was nearly roofied by women he met in Las Vegas.
