Britney's Stay Will Be Extended

2/2/2008 8:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Britney SpearsIt's not a done deal, but expect that sometime tonight, papers will be signed at UCLA extending Britney Spears' stay at the psych ward -- by 14 days.

It's an internal process -- done without a court order. But we're told it will indeed happen, and that's not surprising given her mental health. As we first reported, Britney's been diagnosed with severe bipolar disorder.

The ward Britney is in is considered one of the best in the nation for the treatment she is receiving.

I am now in production of "One Flew Over the Britney Nest" starring a sedated Brit Brit.

In the 1st scene Brit announces her arrival in lockup by getting down on all fours & barking like rabid hyena - in a British accent.

Meanwhile TMZ orderlies constantly kiss up to her & tell her how cute she looks.

Just inject her with Ritalin and she'll be fine.

I am sooooooo glad to hear this. She's needed help for a long time. Now, if the media and the hounds can just back off and let her be at peace!

That fame clock is ticking away Sam and your 15 minutes are almost up. The truth will eventually all come out and I hope you get the full punishment.

How could you steal from her? She is sick and vulnerable. You are the devil.

This whole thing is so sad. I feel bad for the family. It must be very hard to deal with all of this while the world looks on.

Well I'll be checking daily off and on for updates on her wellbeing and unfortunately the next saga in the life of Britney...At this point it's become an addiction... Sorry... It was a kicker while she was riding around and talking in her British accent, but I'm glad that she is getting the help she needs....

oh steve- post #61.. she brought this on herself.... of course we wouldn't harrass and annoy someone with cancer.... the person with cancer doesn't run around town showin of their kibble and bits to the world. someone with cancer doesn't run around with pap smears at 3 am.... someone with cancer seems to have some common sense .... does something worth while in their life.... makes a difference.... britster is just plan ole loooney.... stevie..... pumpkin... it will be okay.... here's a tissue.

Her psychiatrist and Britney or her conservator will appear before a judge and the judge will decide if the 14 day hold is justified. The hearing can be held at the hospital or in a ourtroom. Check the Welfare & Institution Code for the exact details. Her hold is now a 5250. She also has free assistance from a Patient's Rights Advocate provided by LA County. She cannot be put on the 14 day without a hearing.
