Almost 12 hours after being released from her court-ordered hospitalization, troubled pop star Britney Spears finally returned to her home behind the gates of her private community. And what had at first appeared to be headed for another classic Britney night of hotel-hopping and driving aimlessly until sunrise was brought to a quiet end after the intervention of her father.

Shortly before 9 pm on Wednesday (CLICK HERE for the entire timeline) a weary-looking Jamie Spears entered the lobby of the Beverly Hills Hotel, where his daughter was holed up in a room on the second floor with her boyfriend, photographer Adnan Ghalib. In his hands, Jamie was clenching a pile of legal documents that he was attempting to get the hotel staff to look at.

Thirty minutes later, with the assistance of hotel security and the LAPD, Jamie found himself face to face with the daughter who reportedly wants nothing to do with him. And yet somehow he was able to convince Brit to ultimately return to her home.

It’s possible that, as her court-appointed conservator, Jamie was able to tug on her purse strings to make her realize that she can’t afford expensive four-star hotel rooms without his approval. Regardless, insiders tell OK! that Brit and Adnan were driven to a restaurant in the San Fernando Valley and then to her home in The Summit where she and Adnan are currently staying with Jamie and Britney’s mom Lynne.

Sources also tell OK! that Jamie and Britney’s mom, Lynne, are likely to head to court as early as Thursday to ask the judge to strengthen the existing conservatorship. It is believed that Brit met with lawyer Adam Streisand shortly after being released from the hospital today and that Streisand, who attempted unsuccesfully earlier this week to present himself as Brit’s lawyer, may once again attempt to involve himself in the case.

OK! will be on hand at the courthouse tomorrow to bring you any breaking news.
