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.

PUBLIC SAFETY IS AT STAKE    

Now her laptop and some racy videos of her are missing, since she left for the hospital (according to her parents).

I wonder if O'Slime-a would know anything about that ...

Our prayers are answered. Maybe now the world will be educated re:this disorder. To treat someone badly because their disease is mental is morally wrong. I am guilty, too. Just from fear and ignorance. I have learned a lot from this site, and friends have started talking about their problems. They were on meds, and the rest of us didn't even kknow they were bi-polar. To laugh at this is so stupid and unkind.

Complicated    

There is no doubt this girl needs help...but being crazy is not against the law...going to starbucks and gas stations, not against the law, dating a photographer not against the law and it's not even against the law to not want your children. So, how is it this easy to get someone committed against their will? And, by the very parents who caused her to be this way in the first place...why on earth would anyone think her parents are capable of making appropriate decisions on her behalf.. According to tmz all of her drug tests came up clean, so, what exactly warrants her being held against her will for another 2 weeks? She may very well need to be hospitalized, but forcing someone to be committed involuntarily is a scary line to cross....especially when her own mother needs a meal ticket, that Britney stopped providing for her.

We all need to pray for Britney she is a sick girl and needs people around her to care about her, not exploit her. There must be some relative or friend that can help her. I truly feel she is now getting the help that she so desperately needs hopefully God will place a Angel in her path that will help her. I pray for her everyday, she is a human being and we should all try to understand her plea for help! Pray for Britney.

Let me just say bi polar is a horrible illness. It is a one step at a time illness. Stability is moment by moment. I am a mother of a bipolar child.The hardest thing to do is sit and watch our child go through this. Brittney I dont listen to you music much to young for me HOWEVER there is a light at the end of your tunnell. You must get better for yourself. Its not an easy road but it is way worth it. Your boys to look back and say but mom we understand and you have become a better person. Brittney your children love you tap into that love they have for you and it will pull you through. Maybe through this youll be able to speak up and bring light to this illness that some of our chilren deal with daily. Everyone has a purpose and everything happens for a reason. Think about it you could be a positive voice! Theres way more to life then what you have expirenced, your still young. Brittney I wish you the best! My thoughts and prayers are with you.

We're only given so many opportunities in life and this is one more for Britney, her family, and the people who truly care about her to get her the medical help she needs so in the years ahead her life will not be a carbon copy of Anna Nicole Smith but those of a bright, intelligent, talented woman who can regain the respect and credibility of the community in addition to being a good, productive parent who won't raise her children like Anna Nicole raised her son.

Mr. Spears and co-conservator, God Bless You for stepping up to the plate. Doing the right thing in life is often the hardest thing to do but it is obvious by this action that you truly do care about your child's future. HANG IN THERE MR. SPEARS no matter how many rants and raves and hearbreaking things she may say. YOU ARE DOING THE RIGHT THING BY YOUR CHILD.

Perez was just joking around. He doesn't know yet what was taken.

How would her parents know sex tapes were missing?

She's not in jail people. SHE'S MENTALLY SICK. People like that you don't just let out on the street! They're crazy! Nothing anybody says means anything except her doctors in the psych ward. If her doctors say she is sick and must be held for 14 days then she's going to be held for 14 days. That's just the way it is, it's done all the time. They do it so the person can get better! Not because they're mad at them or they did something wrong!
