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.

Susie, the media isn't the problem, nor is K-Fed. Britney isn't doing anything to get better or retain access to her children. Why blame her ex or the media?

I have a feeling Brit is consulting a lawyer before she does a lot of this stuff that doesnt make much sense. Atleast she knows the consequenses of her actions at court before she does what she does.

Have a great live feed at the next court date.

I agree with all those that have posted the following...

1) She will not be jailed for contempt because this is a Family Court matter, not a Criminal Court one.

2) These court proceedings are to determine whether or not she will get long term custody of their children. Not to force her to get any mental help. The order to get an 'mental' evaluation was given as a prerequisite to getting any custody.

3) There are very REAL consequences of her continued defiance of the court orders - NO CUSTODY.

4) I believe she is not mentally ill but simply a spoiled manipulative low IQ'd bitch who believes she can do anything, including defying the court and still get her children back because..well...she's Britney bitch.

5) She will not take any 'evaluation' because she's afraid the mental health professionals will twig to her FAKE behavior.

And I can't wait to see her get her comeuppance.

58. I wish Britney the very best in getting well & getting custody of her kids again. The media should be looking into what K-fed does instead of hounding Britney day & night.

A "Creative Way" to get treatment, what is that about, reminds me of the last lame excuse "You dont understand she's a Pop Star and doesnt get up that early in the morning". Her Lawyer's are as loopy as she is, oh and I thought her Attorney's dumped her. Make up your mind

This poor girl needs a reality check. I am so glad she has no contact with her sons. They are better off without this kind of influence in their lives. They are young and absolutely do not need to be around this type of influence. The only thing I think is that if she wanted her kids back that badly she would do whatever is asked of her in order to get them back. I would walk over hot coals and do whatever I had to if I were in this position. Just goes to show that she is not capable of making rational decisions. Standing outside a courtroom and not going in. Grow up honey you say you love your kids and want them back.. PROVE IT!! Get yourself the help that you obviously need and prove that you can be a good mother the kind of mother those two absolutely beautiful little boys deserve.

HERE'S AN IDEA FOR KEVIN'S ATTORNEYS....SUE BRITNEY'S ESTATE on behalf of her boys. Sue her for the what she has put them through...and to protect their future. I'm sure you could find an attorney to represent ONLY the boys and take her loot for THEM. Come on Geoffrey Figer...step in and get the money on behalf of the boys. Yes, Kevin needs money to raise them. But those boys deserve the bulk of her estate. Leaving her enough to live an humble life. She wouldn't have many MEN if she didn't have money. Somebody sue on behalf of Preston and Jayden. At the very least before she blows it on HERSELF..and leaves her boys without their just due.

Just saw her coming out of the court. Wearing her same gray shirt. She didn't stay. She didn't want to stay. She doesn't care about those boys. She just doesn't. She's got to get home ..smoke cigs and have sex with her Iranian boyfriend. Psych Pschmych. She's not mentally ill. She's totally self consumed. About the multiple personality disorders. She doesn't have that. She doesn't follow the MO for that disorder. She does everything she does for attention for herself. She sickens me. What a disgusting human being.

There is something so wrong with Brit. She surly reads or listens to the news reports about her craziness & what she is doing to ruin her life & ruin her future with her children. She just doesn't care & she reminds us of this ever time she leaves her house & acts like a crazy rich girl. Her money is her poison. She thinks she is so rich & young that nothing can get to her.
Well I have news for her. Soon there won't be anyone that will waste their time snapping your picture or buying your records and you will be a "has-been" (or you already are)! You better settle down & get some help. Show the courts & the world that you are not just some dumb redneck girl that is spinning into your own death bed. Do it quick!

In response to:

" What a sad state of affairs these people are in. At least the kids are young enough to not be affected on an emotional level yet." Posted at 1:56PM on Jan 23rd 2008 by Search Engine Optimization - Terry Reeves

You are very wrong. Absence of a loving and nurturing maternal figure when the child is between 1-5 years of age creates a whole host of psych problems for most children. Most will end up with serious abandonment issues and plenty of insecurity as a result. And this filters down. Kids, as adults, learn what they know. So when abandoned kids grow up they have trouble with relationships and if they do marriage, without treatment, invariably they end up raising dysfunctional kids.

when she was starting out her mother pushed her to the media,she becomes a big star,non-touchable........lose's justin,finds fed-x..........married,had children & that went bad,she is going thru a terrible emotional time & all we can do is make up stories about her,giving her NO support.PAP's are just making it worse.

she is a good person & a good mother, she needs to see her children & her children needs her, if we all leave her alone iam sure she will be fine!

this is so sick how you all get off on her downfall, i wouldn't wish this on anybody's child! we the media,fan's & pap's need to grow up............let her get her life together.

to britney............(this is in no way making you a bad mother) try to give up rights to the children & fed-x won't get no support....see how fast your children come back to you!!

I'll be praying for you and the boys. I hope you find a really good mommy to replace Britney. Also, I like the post about suing Britney for the kids, great idea ;o)

Do you remember when you where a teenager? If you were the "typical" teenager you night have cut your hair really short or dyed it some crazy color, you might have thought that marring your high school sweat heart would be the best thing ever, you craved attention from everyone, you were probably rebellious and defied authority, you most likely believed that your parents didn’t know anything… perhaps they were even out to get you and last but not least you though you were a responsible mature adult that was prepared for anything.
What does this have to do with Brittney? Well, first let me say that while Brittney’s behavior is inappropriate and unusual it’s not completely dangerous (at least not to her in the way that drinking and driving or drug abuse is). If you step back and look at it, Brittney’s acting like a rebellious, defiant, pain in the butt teenager. Think about it, it makes sense… she was thrown on stage at a very young age and never REALLY experienced her teenage years. Yes, the timing is off (maybe she should have done this before children) but she is acting like a teenager…. She won’t talk to her family, she goes to every gas station she can find and calls places LOOKING for the paparazzi, she shaved her head (which I personally believe was to avoid the hair drug test Kevin threatened her with), SHE LOCKED HERSELF IN HER ROOM… I mean come on!!! That’s exactly what I did when I was 14 and mad because my parents wouldn’t give me what I want (in this case it’s the judge). This whole downward spiral began after she married her high school boyfriend in Las Vegas… it’s like she’s trying to get back her teenage years!!! And like a typical teenager… she’s not wrong, she knows what’s best for her, she knows what she’s doing and she won’t listen to anyone!!!
I so unfortunate that the only people that will really suffer from this in years to come are those precious little boys!!!

When Britney FINALLY GETS IT, then and only then -- MAYBE she'll "humor" the Court and get evaluated. Don't hold your breath. Britney will be dead before that ever happens.
