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.

What??    

The children need to see their mother. At this point it is not important what Brit or Fed X wants

As someone with bipolar disorder, I can tell you that many people I know have gone through similar ordeals to Brit.
It doesn't feel to her like she has a problem, and you can bet she's scared of the implications of having this. Many bipolars only get diagnosed after having run-ins with the law. One I know started doing arson, another was suspected of cocaine use when stopped roadside, much like Brit was hauled off to detox. You can bet she's suspicious of everyone, and her mind is probably racing and she doesn't think about the reprecussions of all these stupid things.

(a) she deserves to be evaluated privately rather than through the Courts.

The courts are trying to 'evaluate' child custody matters. Therefore they have every right to process this through their system, in order to do their job, and at some point put an end to this matter.

(b) I would (also) make certain papers were filed to prevent the almighty Shar Jackson from having anything to do with these little boys!

The court has NO authority to tell a parent who they can be around, or have their children around unless it can be proven that the person's company is a danger in some way to the child.

(c) What Kevin has cowardly done by having those little boys dropped off and picked up by his hood bodyguards is inexcusable.

In highly contentious child custody battles, this is STANDARD PROCEDURE in order to avoid any ugly confrontations between the parents, in front of the children.

*** In short, you are a frickin' moron and obviously have NO CLUE how this sort of thing works, or why!! So it's time to STFU!

THIS WOMAN IS A WORTHLESS PIECE OF GARBAGE WHO FLOODS HORROR INTO HER CHILDREN'S LIVES. SHE HAD SUPERVISED VISITATION IN HER OWN HOME WITH A COURT APPOINTED MONITOR. WE ALL KNOW HOW THAT TURNED OUT. IF SHE REFUSES TO BE COMMITTED PARENTAL RIGHTS SHOULD BE SEVERED. SHE HAS HAD MORE THAN ENOUGH CHANCES. SHE CAN THEN PLAY WHATEVER SELF DESTRUCTIVE GAMES SHE WANTS TO PLAY UNTIL NATURE TAKES ITS INEVITABLE COURSE.

Kids? What kids?    


I think that now it’s known that literally everyone has been trying to get her help, but she’s too pigheaded/mental/whatever to do it, the judge should just say “No” to this.

What is she afraid of? That they might discover that she doesn’t have any mental illness and will realize that she is just a spoiled, manipulating POS?

She has already shown clearly where her priorities are, and they are not with her children. She should not be allowed to have any type of visitation until she has been evaluated and treated successfully for her mental health issues.

She is going to die.
Blondie had a song called "Die Young, Stay Pretty".. (too late for the pretty, here.)
She hacked her hair, herself and her lipsyncing career to bits.
