After much deliberation, OK! Magazine has decided to use observations from its "disastrous" photo shoot with Britney Spears to illustrate just how far off the straight and narrow the beleaguered pop tart still is, even after a rendezvous with rehab.

During the shoot, sources tell TMZ, Spears experienced "nothing less than a meltdown" and appeared "completely out of it," ultimately producing photos that could "kill her career" if published. Spears reportedly trashed severl big-bucks pieces of wardrobe, including a Chanel dress which she let her dog, um, use as a hydrant. After weighing the pro of protecting what's left of Brit's rep with the con of being some sort of enabler, the tab opted to forego the planned (presumably puff-piece) profile and go public with the eye-opening pics.

In a statement, OK!'s editor-in-chief says, "[We] spent a heartbreaking day with Britney Spears and witnessed firsthand an emotional cry for help that will leave you shocked and sad. [In our next issue] the truth will be told."
