Brit Wants What Judge Has Already Ordered

1/22/2008 2:28 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Commissioner Scott Gordon has repeatedly ordered Britney Spears to undergo a psychological evaluation but she has refused to comply.

We're told the Commish has issued multiple orders -- known as a 730 evaluation. Now, as we just reported, Brit's family and professionals have devised a plan to get her mental health help in a "creative way." But given his previous orders, the Commish may not be receptive, and almost certainly K-Fed's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, will object.

Evaluating bipolar disorder is a long process. If it's done pursuant to a 730 evaluation, the results are submitted to the court. If the Commish were to accept the alternative form of treatment, a doctor-patient privilege could prevent certain information from making its way to the court (unless the privilege is waived).

Here's the likely scenario based on what we're hearing: K-Fed (and probably the court) will not want Brit to bypass the 730 evaluation process. That could make it unlikely for Brit's lawyers to win a bid to regain visitation in a therapeutic setting.

We'll be live streaming video at the courthouse tomorrow morning. Stay tuned.

When, oh, when will the Court get fed up with her manipulation? Why do they let this bitch run free? Please don't fall for this latest bit of crap. Please. That woman has about as much interest in her children as she would in reading Proust. None.

Britney would benefit greatly from seeing her children. Her children would also benefit from being around their mother, regardless of what we all assume to think about her. Those children need PARENTS and whether we like it or not, Britney is a parent. Yes, she needs help, but she should also see her children. In a therapeutic setting, this can be helpful for both her and her children.

Because all her dirty laundry has been aired publicly by herself via the paps, Kevin and his unprofessional attorney, plus this website....I hope her family of origin is able to intervene so she can be (thoroughly) evaluated out of the eyes of Kevin and his attorney, plus the public! When the mainstream media gets involved daily in the destruction of Britney, she deserves to be evaluated privately rather than through the Courts.

It's time for Kevin to step-up-to-the-plate, get full-time work to provide for his children as other single fathers do, while hiring a good domestic and caregiving staff to take care of these little boys until their mother is professionally treated and stabilized so she can participate (as an empowered woman) in raising her sons. If I were Britney and her family, I would (also) make certain papers were filed to prevent the almighty Shar Jackson from having anything to do with these little boys! What Kevin has cowardly done by having those little boys dropped off and picked up by his hood bodyguards is inexcusable and demonstrates what a little junkyard dog he is in this life.

"monitored visitation in a therapeutic setting."

Does that mean that she & the boys are going to take a Jacuzzi together w/ a lifeguard present?

No, it usually takes a lot more for your kids to be taken away from you. Britney has never really been in trouble with the law--everything has been minor. Everything in this case is hearsay; it's just that she hasn't denied any of it, since she won't show up for depositions and everything.
And Kevin has an endless amount of money (HERS) to pay his lawyers to critique every
aspect of her life.

She is ill and is not thinking straight! Mental illness is a hard thing to accept! I believe she is a good mother but has lost her way. I am so sad for her! Her mother should get out of Jamie Lynn's ass and go help her sick child.

This woman isn't crazy...she is playing everyone. the talk shows are beginning to notice that this is an ACT.
The stupid accent, the antics, the paps - it is what she wants.
Perhhaps she is crazy as a fox? However, she believes everyone is dumb enough to think she is crazy -
and apparently she does not realize she could lose her children - guess she doesn't care about her money either,
as K-Fed laughs all the way to the bank!

Hoser-eh how can you wish death upon someone's child, someone's mother, someone's sister?????? She may not mean something to you, but there are people that love and care for her. If you are not one of them then why even waste your time commenting??? Loser.

people need to leave her alone an let her at least try and do anything she can, to try and restore her relationship with her kids. people are not thinking of her precious litle boys when they downing britney. no matter what she does, she will always be their mother. yes, she has had numerous opportunities to make things right, but bashing her will not make her correct everything the public says she has done. it is not for us to judge her, it is her life and people need to leave her alone. when she does go for this therapy, the paps need to let her do that in peace, and stop trying to make a dollar off of her, i cannot imagine not being able to be around my kids and having people follow my every move making it public. i heard her in one instance where she told someone that was supposed to be homeless, " they were better off being homeless than being her", this is so sad. she has so much to live for and her make a comment like that. that should tell people that they need to leave her alone. people need to pray for her rather than continuously down her, people have no right to play GOD
