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.

huh, missing some documents    

As much as I truly believe there is nothing wrong with Britney, except that she loves the attention, I do believe children need contact with both parents, unless there is a clear and present danger. Unfortunately right now that danger is Britney. She courts the attention, lets the paps know where she is going and pulls outrageous stunts and makes completely ridiculous and irrational decisions. One appearance at a deposition does not a good parent make. Some outlets are reporting that she bailed after the first 2 hours because "she cannot sit still long enough". Whether or not that is true remains to be seen. Who is to say that she will not tell the paps where and when the meetings with the kids will be. That clearly is putting them in danger right there. What if she speaks to the kids in the british accent? Is that not clearly a confusing situation for them to be in? Heaven forbid, what if she refuses to let them go at the end of the time and makes some scene. Is that not emotionally damaging to these children? Unfortunately the unpredictable behavior that she currently exhbits makes her a danger, at least in the short tun. She needs to follow the commissioner's order - anyone else who filed (yes, again she filed) a custody suit would have to. I wonder about her lawyers also. Obviously the are going to be there tomorrow, but are they still going to request to be removed or has she snowed them with her "good" behavior by showing up to the depo. My guess is that they still ask to be released as they too see her behavior as a clear and present danger to their case alone.

Ha! I wonder what creative thing her family is going to do to get her the help she needs....will they like throw an oreo through the front door of the psyc ward or something? Maybe put a "catch it live" trap next to the gas pump? Thats classic, creative.

How about you just do an intervention, like a real one, without camera's and reporters and enablers, just family saying we are worried and we want to help? With no agenda? She needs help. I might have blamed her before, but she is loony toons right now, someone needs to push her or she will never see those kids again! They miss their mommy, they are just babies. If her family doesn't like her, thats life, but the kids need to see their mommy is ok, and not for a week, but forever.

'nuff said.

Okay, okay, okay ---- I get it that Britney isn't all hooked up, I think everybody gets that point. I also understand why the judge/court has required her to undergo random drug and alcohol screenings, no argument there. I DO HAVE A HUGE QUESTION THOUGH --- DOES K-FED HAVE TO DO AN ALCOHOL OR DRUG SCREENINGS? IS ANYTHING SUPERVISED AT HIS HOUSE?

Off topic...UK's The Sun has a pic of Sam Lufti licking Brit's ear. What is his story, just some LA talent manager who is not about to lose his bread and butter? Creep.

It's quite obvious that MANY of you posting on here have NO experince what so ever dealing with a person that has a mental disorder. Show some compassion people!

I think that the woman needs professional help and what she gets are a bunch of posers and losers directing her every move instead of giving her help. Its criminal how people feed on the misery and pain of others. I dont care for her as a singer she has little to no real talent but she is human and should be helped not used as fodder for our entertainment.

Considering she's already not complied with court orders for a mental evaluation, I think she needs to deal with that first. THEN after the psychiatrist feels she's safe to be around the kids, the psychiatrist can be the court ordered monitor. It needs to be established that she isn't going to cause the children more harm than good when she eventually does get visits.

I've been thinking for a while that this is just an act on Brit's part. The British accent is not another personality. She doesn't have MPD. Did you see the video yesterday where she was talking to the paps in her fake accent and one of them asked what part of England she was from and she just froze up and had a funny look on her face? Brit's response was "Please let me go now" after hesitating.Why? Because she doesn't know anything about England and she couldn't think of a place to say she was from! If it was another personality, "she" would have answered the question with an actual place in England!

She knows that what started as goofing around and talking in a funny accent got her a bunch of attention with people speculating that she has alternate personalities, blah, blah, blah, so she's continued with the accent, embraced it and is jerking everyone around. The main addiction that Britney has is attention addiction. She's really insecure, feels like a nothing without being the center of attention, can't handle being alone and will do anything to get the attention she craves, whether it involves exposing her body, doing crazy things, wandering aimlessly around until her adoring pap posse trails after her, telling her how great (???!!!) she looks. The paps are taking the place of the screaming fans at concerts that she used to feed her ego with. I guess when you're that bad off, any screaming crowd is better than no screaming crowd. In her eyes, it means that she's still somebody special and somebody important.

I do not think Brit is mental--yeah thats right --i think she has played us all--but at the same time i think she unintentially screwed herself--her plan backfired--now she goes to plan z--she thinks only of herself--her first--and is oblivious to how it impacts those around her especially the people who love her--she is working damage control and probably thinks she can come out on top on this issue again---If she really LOVED or even CARED for her kids it would not have played out like it has--she would have listened to her NUMEROUS lawyers, family and true friends (if she has any left) she would have fought with every ounce of her essence to get those kids back and in her life---she did not!!!

And she needs to quit hanging out with Sam Lutfi...He's either seriously ill or a heavy drug user based on those dark circles that go all the way around his eyes (and no, I don't think he was born that way or hasn't gotten a good night's sleep in a while). He seems like bad news and is just another paid sycophant.

Why should she get any special allowances when her irresponsible behavior was what got her into this mess in the first place. If she wants her children that badly then she'll do as they ask. Problem is she obviously doesn't want her children that much or she's a complete moron.

she'll get what she wants...It is painfully obvious that the Cali court system is as worst as it gets. Dont count on anything changing, until she OD's or crashes her car.

Why was she not evaluated when she was in rehab?
Why was the court ordered monitor (psychogist) not able to get a pretty clear adea of her mental state during all that time
she spent with her.
This shez makes no sense to me.
