Brit's Lawyers to Commish -- We Have a Plan...

1/23/2008 3:37 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Brit's lawyers did exactly what we told you they would do -- they asked Commissioner Scott Gordon today for visitation in a therapeutic setting, but it went over like a lead balloon.
Britney Spears
As we first reported, Britney's lawyers know they're up against it -- their client has some sort of bipolar disorder but has refused to commit herself to a mental hospital for evaluation and treatment. She cannot be involuntarily committed. So, her lawyers and family have devised a "creative way" of treating Brit, and they wanted the Commish to let her visit the kids while she undergoes treatment.

We're told Commish Gordon was unmoved, especially since he has repeatedly ordered Brit to undergo a court-ordered psych evaluation, but she has refused.

We're also told Brit's lawyers said this "creative" treatment has not yet commenced.

I am so tired of hearing about this girl! Yes, she needs help but doesnt want it. Her kids are better off without her anyway! As a mother there is NO way in hell I would be ok with not being able to see my kids! She needs a reality check and fast!!

17. No problems with the ruling at all. What I don't understand is why when she was taken to the hospital the night of her breakdown and kept for 48 hours, the mental evaluation did not occur? I would like to believe that the hospital in determining that she was not a threat to herself or anyone else would have based that perspective on a legitimate and informed diagnosis. If they did not why was she released? Were no meds prescribed? I am no expert but I believe they had up to 72 hours to hold her in the first instance. Can someone clarify this for me please?

Check out what's involved in this 730 evaluation that the judge has ordered. It's very comprehensive and will take months to complete. There is no possible way for a psychiatrist to be able to diagnose her within the time frame that she was in the hospital. http://www.730evaluation.com/730overview.php

Maybe if this idiot would STOP going out---and act like she really cared about getting her boys back---she might possibly---- at the very least --- get to visit with them on a weekly basis. What Judge would allow this train wreck to see her kids again--let alone have joint custody?! What a disgrace of a human being she is.

SHE'S AN ATTENTION WHORE    

FINALLY; someone who will stand up to dumbass SLUTney & is not swayed by her being a celebrity. I'm glad the judge shut the stupid slut down. This is like a stare down contest; dumbass leg spreadin' SLUTney needs to accept the fact that she's subject to the rule of law; that includes court orders requiring her to be evaluated. She wants to see her kids, she undergoes the 730. No cow-towing to her, no special privileges, she's no better than anyone else. If she refuses to get evaluated (she's refusing because she KNOWS she'll get put in the hospital & treated), then she won't see her kids again.

As soon as she realizes that the court is NOT going to give her special privileges, and that she needs to act like a normal person, she'll step up. It may take some time, but she will ultimately give in.

Everyone needs to quit babying Britney and someone has got to take control here and get the girl some help NOW.
Because, after she's dead everyone is sure going to wish they had when it's too late.
And sorry to say this but, I really see it coming soon. Just like Anna Nicole.
