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.

She needs to spend a little time with her sons after she is released. They are the only humans that love her unconditionally. Lufti texed x17 from her room last night..her parents have exploited her for years. K-fed can and should meet with Brit at like a Mickey D's and supervise a hugfest between the kids and her. Is her current state the product of post pardum depression that has escalated to this current mental breakdown? Could there have been some sort of intervention months earlier if there weren't so many "yes men" around her? I hope she hugs her kids and gets the hell out of LaLa Land.

"GD" stands for Gravely (not "greatly") Disabled. I am certified to do 5150s in San Francisco. According to the law, gravely disabled means a person not only cannot provide her own food and shelter, but no one else is doing it, either. So, she has NO ACCESS to food, and so on. Ms. Spears obviously has shelter, clothing, and makes trips all over the place to buy food. If she doesn't, others do it for her. So, she is not gravely disabled. And, "DWM" (driving while manic) is not against the law and not a criterion for a 5150, either. Endangering yourself means suicidal or actively seeking to harm oneself. Endangering someone else means homicidal, or directly endangering or threatening to endanger someone. The threats must be specific, or there must be a reasonable certainty that there is danger, e.g. if she was driving while drunk with her kids in the car. (This may or may not have happened in the past!) None of my colleagues or I would be able to legally 5150 Britney Spears, nor could a psychiatrist "push" for it. Having said all of that, she did go voluntarily and that's a good thing, but I think someone was able to get a 5150 to stick in the ER just because she's a famous and very publicly mentally ill person. Good luck with getting her to stay more than the 72 hours, take meds, and comply with outpatient treatment. Bipolar patients are notorious for non-compliance and lack of insight - at least for the first couple of decades of their illness. Let's keep our fingers crossed for that tormented girl.

I think bipolar is a misdiagnosis. Everything I read points to schizophrenia. That is if what I read is true. I truly hope she can be stabilized soon.

they need to find a better reason than G.D. if your definition is right, it doesn't seem to apply to Brit. She is constantly buying trashy clothes, eating at fast food restaurants and buying junk food from gas station convience stores, and i just heard she just bought a house for 7mil.

God Bless this poor girl who was led into the entertaining too young and like so many other entertainers, some can handle it and some cannot. The media created a sex image of a young girl who should have been going to highschool dances. How sad that she is caught up in what she was and trying to get back there and for what to be chased by the paparazi and now robbed of her children. Her life is a mess, I hope someone gets her out of the entertainment business, takes her far away where she gain regain some custody of her children and learn that life has far more too offer than being drove crazy by the media. You can say what you want, but the influence and the glory can start out glorious and end up the worst thing that happend to them, this is evident with allot of people who win millions of dollars and say it ruins their lives. How many times do we turn on the TV and hear another drug overdose proves that the only way than can escape their mistery is with pills and alcohol> Britney, take your money and run as far away from the entertainment business as you can get. Through therapy and time you can regain a life far more rewarding than this circus you are living in. You can do it and we can let you go. Find peace dear girl before it is too late.

I'm pulling for Brit. So glad she is getting the help that she obviously needs. I wish I felt better about her parents' involvement here but I don't. I don't think much of Lynne and Jamie as parents. I wish she had someone in her life that genuinely cared, perhaps her brother Bryan. It's good to see him at the hospital today.
