Mel Gibson has been in the news recently over his verbal tirade towards his girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva which was all recorded. As Gibson seems to have had his mental meltdown the question arises if Brittney Spears will reach out.

It was just over two years ago in May of 2008 that Brittney Spears had her famous and public meltdown as everything in her life seemed to be going the wrong way. Back then one of the few celebrities that reached out to her was Mel Gibson. Gibson and Spears had been neighbors when she lived in Malibu and as a good neighbor, Gibson felt it was his place to reach out to her.
Gibson and then wife Robin took Brittney and her father to Costa Rica to stay at their home to help her get away as part of her recuperation. The two stars were even seen dining at a Russian restaurant in Studio City.
Now it seems that the shoe is on the other foot and while Spears appears to have made a comeback, Gibson is seeing his life crumble around him and that raises the question as to whether or not Spears will reach out to her former neighbor in his time of need or not.
