Visitation Stays the Same

1/23/2008 3:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Britney Spears was shut down in her attempt to regain some sort of visitation. There are no changes. K-Fed has sole custody and no visitation for Brit for now.

Brit arrived at the courthouse and went through the metal detector, but then had a change of heart and didn't want to go inside the courtroom.

Sources told TMZ Brit wanted visitation restored in a "therapeutic setting" -- meaning under the treatment of medical professionals -- but that wasn't gonna happen, especially since she never showed to make a plea. The Court noted Brit's absence.

As we first reported, Brit has some sort of bipolar disorder. The Commish has repeatedly ordered her to get a medical evaluation, but she has refused to comply.

Respect her?! She deserves no respect! She obviously has no respect for anyone or even herself. And if anyone needs to "grow up" it's her. You're ignorant Ana.

Where is her mother? It's funny how you would always see her mother behind her when she was touring, and making all this money. It's obvious she was pimping her daughters, one is having a baby, the other is a mess! Way to go MOM!!!! Hope your happy with your millions.

Did she really think she was going to get her kids back?!! What an idiot. She was told what she can do to get her kids back, but she refuses to do it, That's her own fault. I feel no sympathy for her at all. I would feel the same way even if she was a no body. Anyone who thinks of themselves before their kids, should be in the same position. To Britney Grow up and realize that you are not the only person on this planet. Even your other personalities.

OK! so Alaska does'nt want her, who can blame them - could'nt she just be dropped off somewhere on an island in the Pacific ocean (or any ocean for that matter) with Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Anne Colter, Amy Whinehouse, (just insert whoever you can't stand here) and don't go back for them, The worst part for them would be no cameras, paparazzi, no TMZ streaming, I'm sorry but she does'nt deserve any more chances, and I hope the Judge digs his heels in. I am sure her family have tried their best, but she rejects everyone, you really can't blame them for all this, although I am sure they wish they had done things differently a long time ago, she just thinks the world revolves around her and its not going to change unless she gets help and she does'nt want to do that, so she should have to live with the consequences, its her choice!!!

There is no such thing as "some sort of bipolar disorder," as TMZ says. Bipolar disorder is a specific disorder, not a vague umbrella over a bevy of disorders. And you don't have to have yourself "committed" in order to undergo an evaluation to determine the particulars of mental health. Unless TMZ has a medical license or some other psychiatric credentials, they should limit their "diagnosis" to simply stating that there may be mental health issues at play.

Everybody and their brother has TRIED to get this girl help and SHE REFUSES.

Why do you think her family and former friends are not even allowed near her anymore??? Because they tried to force her to get help via the rehab route and she HATES them now.

The court has ORDERED her to get a mental evaluation and SHE WILL NOT. Her lawyers can not control her at all and are going to bail on her Feb.3.

And she is surrounded by enablers who constantly tell her she is ok and validate her stupid actions and choices.

Maybe you should go help.

She's pathetic. She thinks this is a game. In the meantime, K-Fed is laughing all the way to the bank and those poor little boys.....

It is sad that Britney finds it so difficult to show up at these hearings to see if she can visit with her sons. What is the idea of going to the courthouse and then not going into the courtroom. YO, BRITNEY, GROW THE F U C K UP!!! These are your children and it is growing apparent to all of us that you cannot handle them or yourself. Get rid of that Adnan a__hole and straighten your priorities out!!! You don't need the paparazzi idiots following you around. You need your children because they will help ground you and keep you on the straight path. Don't let your ex-idiot continue making you look like the fool you have been acting like. Grow up please and go to court and fight for the two people in this world who really need you and want you.

are there pics anywhere of what she had on? Just curious, considering her past fashion debacles....Kudos to Commissioner Gordon! I kinda thought he may give in and be soft with her today but he surprised me! And before anyone jumps down my throat...I do think she should see her boys-eventually. She hasn't put forth any effort in winning back visitation and her lifestyle screams abnormal and unsuitable for young kids. I hope she gets her act together for the boys' sake. As a mom, I can't imagine not seeing my kids and not doing anything I can to win custody back.

This has got me thinking, though. The other day was her longest depo ever, but it was reported Kaplan only asked 2% of his questions. We all know she has avoided every other depo like the plague, as well as court hearings. SOMETHING must be there that really freaks her out. She must have done something or is guilty of many of these accusations for her not to just face these depos and hearings and get on with her life. HMMMMM, makes me wonder....Kevin! Write the tell all!!!!!!

This incident perfectly highlights two points. First, Britney is incapable of working with her attorneys in any fashion. She's simply not up to it and this whole thing must have been her idea. Her attorneys surely explained that the commissioner wouldn't buy it. I would feel sorry for them if they weren't pulling down a big check. Secondly, and more importantly, Britney is incapable of behving in a rational adult way in order to regain some access to her children. That is so sad but it's true and it supports the current custody arrangement. I wonder how long it will be before Britney can bring herself to face the judge like a grown up.

Someone go over there and stay with her that truly loves her, please. Sincerely, this is so sad. Moms of America-aren't you feeling sad for this girl, not yet a WOMAN?

calling it like i see it    

No surprise here. She isn't concerned with anyone or anything right now but herself. Her children are better off without her in their life. Just wonder about ten years down the line, when she isn't famous only infamous, how she'll explain to her children that stops at the gas station, crusising with a married man and shopping are soo much more important than seeing her precious miracles. She needs to get help and get out of the public eye. Those poor babies didn't ask to be born to this unstable wreck. If it's a disorder, then for goodness, get help. If it's just pure selfishness and lack of morals, then get the heck out of those babies lives. Either way, Brit grow the hell up......
