Brit's Parents Tried to Commit Her

1/9/2008 3:02 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Britney's parents -- especially her dad -- have been earnestly trying for months to get her committed into a mental hospital for a bipolar disorder.

We know Jamie Spears in particular has felt since last summer that Brit was suffering from a mental disease and not substance abuse. Jamie was looking for a way to push his daughter into a facility but she refused. Indeed, we're told she refused and continues to refuse to undergo a battery of tests that would officially diagnose the bipolar disorder.

We're told both Jamie and Lynne Spears believe Sam Lutfi, the guy who was inseparable from Brit until last week, was a prime reason she was refusing treatment. They are so mad at Lutfi they threw him out of Cedars last week.

I don't trust anything those gold digging parents say. But Britney, your fans love you and want you to be healthy & happy.

The reason she doesn't want treatment is because she doesn't have a mental disorder. The only thing she needs is an attitude adjustment.

Hopefully her parents will start acting more like parents and less opportunistic like Lufti, Adnan, etc. They have done questionable things in the past (selling stories, info, "parenting books") but sadly they are the best she has right now in terms of her getting her head back on straight. Maybe they should surprise everyone and do it right.

Maybe Brit is a scientologist and doesn't believe in treating mental disorders.

They call it Tough Love for a reason. Unfortunately a little to late? I really feel sad for the young Mother, she is all alone and cant trust anyone apparently.

yeah. And I'll bet as soon as she was committed they would sprint over to court and try to be put in charge of her money too.

She's probably one more freak-out closer to having a court-appointed guardian for her.

It could still happen. I doubt that it is anything that anyone (including her family or the court) would want to have happen, but if they care about her mental and physical welfare, it is something that might have to be done.

Sadly, it looks like Britney probably isn't even capable of making any decisions for herself at this time. She has stiff-armed all offers of help and is denying there is anything wrong. The simplest thing to do would be to get an evaluation and prove to yourself and everyone else that there isn't a problem---if that is truly the case. If it isn't, then the sooner she gets help, the better. Better for herself and better for her children.

She's not the only one suffering. She is think more about herself and her wants rather than doing what is best for the sake of her children by facing some down home realities that aren't going to go away because she pokes out her bottom lip and turns her back in a fit of pique.

I think it will come out in the news that Bratney's parents were skimming money all this time in order to support their crack habit
