Dr. Phil on Britney: She Is in "Dire Need" of Help

1/5/2008 6:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. PhilDr. Phil has issued the following statement to ET about his visit with Britney Spears this morning.

"My meeting with Britney and some of her family members this morning in her room at Cedars leaves me convinced more than ever that she is in dire need of both medical and psychological intervention.

She was released moments before my arrival and was packing when I entered the room. We visited for about an hour before I walked with her to her car. I am very concerned for her."

What I find is hilarious is all the posters who are "Leave her alone Harvey/Perez its all your fault, stop hounding her !!ZOMGBBQ!!"

Perez couldn't have had a record setting day without you. Comedy gold. Entirely yours.

No wonder the poor girl has gone off the deep end...Maype if people would back off her and give her space she might seek the help she may need without the whole world knowing her bussiness.

Where you like Dr. Phil or not, he is very skilled in dealing with cases like Britney. If he didn't get involved, he would have been criticized still. He is a no nonsense Dr. and that is what Britney needs right now. Yes, he has a show, but I'm sure he feels he has some duty to step in. He can't just sit there and watch this unfold like the rest of us, especially when he is friends with the family. I could see the headlines now, "Family Friend Dr. Phil no where to be found when Britney had breakdown."

Don't be criticizing him, be thankful that he has spoken to Britney. He's tough and may be the only person who can make a difference with her. For those bashing him, why don't you try and do a better job at it then.

And don't blame K-Fed either. Britney has herself to blame. Stop with the blame games. Britney is a grown woman who has made bad choices WITHOUT PEOPLE FORCING HER. If K-Fed did not make attempts to remove the children away from Britney, he would have been criticized for that too.

She needs mental help and once that is accomplished, then I think she will be ok.

Dr. Phil McGraw is worse than Dr. Jan Adams (who performed surgery on Kanye West's mother). The Texas State Board of Examiners of Psychologists imposed disciplinary sanctions on McGraw in 1989 and he was ordered to take an ethics class, etc. McGraw DID NOT complete the ethics course and is NOT licensed or permitted to practice as a psychologist. Britney should seek help from a LICENSED professional, not a media-hungry talk show host.

What a jer! Why is he speaking publicly. A real doctor with principles would not speak about a patient.
He is a snake oil salesman. OPRAH...PUT A LID ON THIS JERK!!!!!!!

Let's see... this is the same jerk who not long ago stated what a good job he thought her mother has done. How things change when the TV ratings matter. What a phony POS he is.

This is RIDICULOUS. Dr. Phil is such a fraud. I used to like him, but now that I see he's taking advantage of the situation, he's just looking for a cash cow. And as for Britney, I am NOT defending her ass either. This being on Dr. Phil is just what she wanted. More attention. Her career is nothing more than a stupid reality series starring herself.

I just copied this from PageSix.com. This was posted at 3:04PM.

After returning home from the hospital earlier this morning, Britney Spears is back on the road.
Just eight minutes ago, the brokendown pop wreck left her Beverly Hills mansion in her white Mercedes, saw photographers and turned in the other direction.
Currently, she's driving aimlessly near her house.
Meanwhile, media eyes spotted her father Jamie Spears leaving his daughter's gated community shortly after she left. Kevin Federline hasn't left his house all day and is still holed up with sons Sean Preston and Jayden James.

This DOES NOT sound like she is any better!!!

Ok, are there 2 year olds posting in here? I cannot believe I read in here that Dr. Phil is not a Dr. What planet are you on? Of course he's a Dr! Not a medical doctor but a clinical psychologist. Hello!!
