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.

How pathetic for those of you who are wishing Britney ill harm - you guys are ruthless, May every bad thing you've wished for Britney come back at you ten times. Remember, KARMA is a Bitch! Get educated on this disease that she is suffering from or at least get educated!

When Britney first started acting out I said she was suffering from either postpartum depression or bi-polar disorder or both. Everyone else said she was just looking for attention. That poor girl needed help long before now and yet people all around her just kept using her and encouraging her bizarre behavior. From what we now know it appears that no one in Britney's "inner circle" has her best interests at heart because they've all got their own agenda. I feel so sorry for that girl. If I could I'd take her in myself, away from all the paps, and see to it that she got the medical help she so desperately needs. That girl needs one person in her life who will be a true friend to her and will look out for her without expecting anything in return. She really is a "little girl all alone" and it's just so sad. I really hope this time she will finally get the right medical care for the right amount of time that will put her on the road to recovery. Hopefully when she gets out she can have some clarity of mind and start getting rid of the losers around her so she can then work toward getting her children back. Being bi-polar does not mean that you're a loser or a bad mother; it simply means that you have a disease.

Britney Spears has to be institutionalized for good any other person without celebrity would
have been. For the safety of bystanders around Britney she should permanently reside at an
institution. If Britney needs to be put in 5150 twice in one month and this time she is in
G.D. and under consideration of a fourteen day observation but I doubt won't happen, she
needs to reside in an institution once she is done with the 5150 so Britney still has a chance
of life and she won't have the possibility of hurting or killing other people.

49. Whew, it's about time. The poor gal really needs to stay right where she is, and even though I don't like her, I will still say a prayer for her and her kids. I wanted to share a video with all of you. It's called "It's not Easy Being Britney Spears", I call it, "God Calling Britney, is Anyone Home." Well, here it is..

Maybe you can remember back and can feel what I'm trying to say. The words, I will fix you, are most appropriate at this time. Just so everyone know, I'm not a Britney fan, never have been. I'm just a person who has empathy..:) Enjoy...:)

It is NOT "GREATLY" disabled - it is "GRAVELY" disabled. It is a category/classification of mental disabilty that can be used in front of a judge to grant conservatorship of the patient if he/she refuses medications. The judge grants the conservator authority to keep the patient in the hospital until they are medically stabilized and no longer a danger to self or others. I know because I am a certified medical transcriptionist and do 5150 holds, psychiatric charts and REISE petitions all the time.

This is the best news so far. She won't disappear on her own so permanent hospitalization is a fantastic second option. Go Away Britney and all her family and hangers on. Enough of this crazy story.

The BritWreck acts in such a way to ENCOURAGE the paps.. Heck, look at her "boyfriend"!

Even the police escort to the funny farm..

There's no reason she couldn't have just laid down in the back seat of a car, and gotten there without the media attention..

The woman needs help, or at a minimum, needs to be secured so that she doesn't harm others.

Britney is probably schizo....sounds like paranoid delusions to me. I seriously DOUBT her mother is sleeping with her bfs (she wouldnt want to catch the skanks STDs). Paranoia is a major symption of a delusional person. Course drugs can do that too.
