Brit Could Be Involuntary Commitment Candidate

1/31/2008 10:16 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Sources at UCLA Medical Center tell TMZ Britney Spears has been classified as "G.D." -- Gravely Disabled. That is a huge and dangerous deal. That means the patient is unable to take care of basic needs, such as the acquisition of food, clothing or shelter. Being G.D. is one of the criteria for involuntary commitment.

Several health care professionals tell us Britney has fallen into a "manic state" due to her bipolar disorder. We're also told she arrived at the hospital this morning at around 2:15 AM, but wasn't admitted until 4:15 AM because she was causing such a scene in the hospital.

We first reported that Britney accused her mother of sleeping with her boyfriend. Now we have more. We're told Britney screamed, "The only reason she's admitting me is because she wants to be alone with her boyfriend! She wants to sleep with my boyfriend!!" Britney never said exactly who she was talking about.

When Brit calmed down, she talked about her kids, how much she misses them and how it's unfair that she doesn't have them.

EVERYONE NEEDS TO JUST LEAVE BRITTANY ALONE. SHE NEVER REALLY HAD A CHILDHOOD. EVERYONE IN HER LIFE TAKED ADVANTAGE OF HER. THIS GIRL IS HURTING. SHE IS IN A GREAT DEAL OF PAIN.SHE DOESN'T KOW WHAT TO DO. SHE HAS NO ONE IN HER LIFE THAT SHE FEELS THAT SHE CAN GO TO AND TALK THESE ISSUES OUT. SHE IS LOSING HER PURPOSE FOR LIFE IT SEEMS. THE MEDIA IS NOT HELPING HER BY HOUNDING HER AND MAKING THINGS UP. IT IS ALMOST LIKE THE MEDIA IS TRYING TO GET HER TO KILL HERSELF. WHAT GOOD WOULD THAT DO. REGARDLESS IF SHE HAS BER CHILDREN THAT WOULD BE A VOID IN THEIR LIVES. i FEEL FOR THIS WOMAN. SHE JUST WANTS TO BE LOVED! IT IS LIKE SHE HAS GONE NUMB.

To: TMZ is full of it

You can, in fact, suspend a human beings rights at ANYTIME and ANYWHERE if they fulfill any or all of the following criteria:

1) imminent danger to self
2) imminent danger to others
3) gravely disabled

It's called a Lanterman-Petris/5150 Short Act, or an Involuntary 72 hour hold.

The "shopping for red bull" is just a cover for the truth. Which happens to be that she is awake for days because of METHAMPHETAMINE. She is a SPEED FREAK!!!

Whoo hooo!!!! Pray the Lord my girl Brit is my hero! I am in awe of how she shows her pee pee in public! Why would anyone want her to fight for her kids when she can stay out all night and party with the Paps! How dare all of you for putting her down. She just wants to be free from the burden of raising kids for awhile!

The term is GRAVELY DISABLED. You have to be declared such to be admitted on a 5150 hold, which is an unvoluntary commitment to protect the patient.

I'm interested to find out why these episodes of hers are happening. My take on the whole thing? She did some LSD, shrooms, or PCP and that is what triggered these mental problems. Look it up it's drug enduced psychosis.

to bad it wasn't sooner!    

Hey did anyone forget that her lawyers were trying to pull a fast one in court the other day by saying that she Therputic visits with her kids! And if you look back at the TMZ post last night it was all set up with her doctor and lawyers and cops to make this happen. Wow she sat and waited for the cops to show up and take her! Sound to me like she's playing another game not only with her kids but the media. So for all who say that she should get her kids back....why? She had a court person in the car with the kids while she shopped for lights! If someone wasn't in the car she would have left the kids by themself! And driving around all night....yea would she put the kids in the car to do this all night long or would she just leave them by themself at home so she could go get laxitves or go to the gas station to go pooo? She will be out in less than a day and she will be back in court to win her special visit with the kids.

Lock her up and throw away the key.....she's a waste of space!

Sam will do anything to get to Britney, so he can get her to believe all hi lies. Did any one read the article in blender? His goal is to make it look like he's the only one that cares, than take over her finances. Anyone who's breathing can see that. Why is he trying to make himself the only one in her life? That right there screams, problem! He hasn't even known her that long, her family has been there all her life, this girl will come to realize that family is first ALWAYS. Sam needs to back off, if he really cares. Whens shes cleaned up, she'll find him again, if she wants.

LET'S SEE ..........

* She makes coffee, soda and food runs every hour on the hour,
* She demands high end clothing boutiques be opened at 2 am for her private shopping pleasure.
* She has a couple of mansions and practically lives at 4 star hotels.

I'd say she's PERFECTLY capable of taking care of herself !!!

I've been through this with a friend. She's bipolar and she's manic.
She needs medication badly. But it's hard to get these people the
help that they need because they are sooo delusional that have no
clue that anything is wrong with them. And you can't just force a
grown adult to get help, like you can a child. She needs to be
strapped down in the Psych ward and given lots of medication. There
is no other way if she wants to get better. Like I said I've been
through this with a good friend, and it is very treatable and they
can get better 100%, the hardest part is just initially getting them
committed.
