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.

She is an idiot attention hog. There's definately something wrong with her and it may go back to her childhood or lack thereof but she doesn't need to have visitation rights. British accent... horse manure.... she thinks this is something cute and something to talk about... she really is child like.

At this point, it doesn't matter what Brit does or doesn't do, all that matters are the kids. If the kids could be in danger, or if the kids are having to deal with "multiple personalities" they shouldn't be anywhere near her. How does a toddler process all this and how are they not affected for the rest of their lives.....?

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

This is the reason she won't comply with this order everything conveniently gets leaked and the judge so far has done nothing to find out who the leak is and there is only ONE side to this story Brit needs to step up and tell hers this is why this case is so sad her family/friends ...

God Bless those kids...

TMZ - your headline doesn't match the story. Story itself says nothing about her complying. What gives?

They should make her wait until February. Or make her fully comply to earlier requests. She simply should not be allowed to have everything on her terms

Ummmhmmm    

You know ,when it boils down to it -Britney needs to PROVE her actions first and only then should she be allowed "Theraputic Visitation" .Thats what the average Joe would have to do and Britney needs to learn that she IS an average Joe in this custody thing .A grown up teaches their children that there are consequences to their actions ,and what she is trying to do is cut a deal on her mental health .BS if you ask me ...

For those of you that think it is merely an act--then explain to me why she gets naked in front of anyone--everyone knows that is a sign of deep mental issues.any self respecting person keeps their clothes on in public. for god's sake-even porn stars and strippers don't run around naked in clothing stores!! SHE HAS A PROBLEM AND SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED ANY VISITATION UNTIL SHE HAS UNDERGONE THE EVALUATION--THE NORMAL PERSON COULD NOT DICTATE HOW AND WHEN SHE IS GOING TO VISIT HER KIDS AND SHE SHOULD NOT BE ABLE TO EITHER--BUT I DO THINK KEVIN SHOULD HAVE MENTAL EVALUATIONS TOO-TO MAKE CERTAIN HE WILL NOT ALIENATE THE CHILDREN FROM HER.
Britney does not love herself --this comes from being used by her parents as a money bag. It is sad but no excuse for her having visitation with the kids--she either needs to decide she is going to get better or walk out of the kid's life. AND A HEAD'S UP FOR K-FED---IF SHE DIES, YOU WON'T BE AS LUCKY AS LARRY BIRKHEAD,--YOU WON'T GET CONTROL OF THE ESTATE--HE HAS HOWARD STERN WHO WAS SO HOPELESSLY IN LOVE WITH ANNA NICOLE THAT HE WILL GO TO ANY LENGTHS TO SEE THAT DANNIELYNN HAS EVERYTHING THAT HE CAN HELP ACCOMPLISH FOR HER. YOU WILL BE LEFT WITH SOCIAL SECURITY--BIG DROP FROM CHILD SUPPORT--***YOU BETTER BE DOING EVERYTHING IN YOUR POWER TO HELP HER GET BETTER AND NOT COMMIT SUICIDE--***CHILD SUPPORT ENDS WHEN THE PERSON DIES***GET WITH IT K-FED--GET OFF YOUR LAZY BUTT AND HAVE A TRUCE AND HELP THIS PERSON THAT YOU HELPED SCREW UP!!!!BE A DECENT MAN INSTEAD OF A FREE LOADER--IN OTHER STATES, THE EX DOESN'T HAVE TO PAY ATTORNEY FEES FOR CHILD CUSTODY AND CHILD SUPPORT ISSUES.*****GROW UP K-FED--REALIZE YOUR GRAVY TRAIN WILL COME TO AN END IF SHE COMMITS SUICIDE.!!!!!!

I think that Britney is suffering from post-pardum depression. This girl has been "off" since she had the babies. For now, K-Fed needs custody of those kids to allow her to regain control of herself. She can not be a mother to those kids until she learns to love herself. And right now, those kids are not a top priority in her life. Her dog gets better treatment then those kids and that is a shame.

Instead of catering to Britney, why don't they put the interest of the children first. God knows how much this loon has already damaged those kids. Let her prove herself before you let her near those kids again. Stop catering to this spoiled brat and playing by her rules.

She's still playing you people. Her own scheme to get the sympathy vote for idiots worked with you. There is nothing wrong with her. She wasn't crazy last year and she's NOT crazy now.

Keep that crazy bitch away from the kids! I think she will try to kill herself and them as well.

What self respecting attorney would represent her and what self respecting court and judge would allow children to be around someone that is playing games or as mentally ill as she is? She seems to enjoy everyone trying to figure out if she is ill or playing games. She has proven she toys with the media and thinks it is hilarious.

She is either extremely ill or playing games that will cost her the children. If she claims she is well and goes around speaking in a foreign accent, claims to forget people and situations and on and on, then why would anyone allow children around someone that plays games to this extent? If she is ill and will not get help, then she loses her children. It really is black and white.

What part of common sense does anyone not understand how simple this solution truly is. The courts and police go out of their way to appease this woman. If we caused this type of commotion in our communities; do you know what would happen to us?

Please make a stand as attorneys, police officers, judges and courts to stop this damn madness...
