Aubrey O'Day

I Have Serious

Mental Health Issues

EXCLUSIVE

0625_aubry_oday_airplane
Aubrey O'Day is a certified headcase ... so says one of her doctors, who issued the reality star an official medical document which allows her to bring her dogs on to an airplane.

A rep for Virgin America airlines tells TMZ ... the "Celebrity Apprentice" star was cleared to bring her 2 pets into the 1st class section of a flight this week ... because they are registered as "Emotional Support Animals."

So how does one get emotional support animal clearance? Ya gotta have a doctor write a letter ... stating you have mental issues.

According to the Virgin America website, the airline requires the passenger to produce a letter from a licensed mental health professional which substantiates the guest's disability-related need for the animal to accompany them in the aircraft cabin.

V.A. claims the letter must state that the passenger "has a mental health-related disability" ... and that having the animal accompany the passenger is necessary for his or her mental health.

The nature of O'Day's mental health issue is unclear.  We called the starlet for comment.
 
O'Day tweeted pics of the dogs enjoying themselves on the flight to San Francisco ... and the V.A. rep tells us she was "incredibly sweet and polite" ... and nothing short of a "great guest."

So far, no word back.

Are the dogs dyed? Then that should be proof enough for her mental health issues...

Just the fact she would bribe some doctor to write the evaluation and then publicize it is enough for me to know she is not well in the head. Hollywood attracts a lot of people like this, sadly.

It does not need to state that the person has a mental heath issue. The rule is the letter has to say that the person is seen in an office for reasons that fall under the DSM IV Edition. You can not ask a person what they actually have. That's against HIPAA.

she's got a mental health issue all right!
it's called being a spoiled, self centred, entitled, little brat
and celebs can get their doctors to do anything- pretty pathetic isn't it?
had about enough of her on Celebrity Apprentice
if she really needs a calming influence when she travels she can
-travel with a qualified, trained, paid companion
-bring a close family member along
-get relaxation tapes to listen to on the flight
-learn self hypnosis
-go into therapy to find out why she has such an issue and then overcome it with behaviour modification
many things she could do or her doctor could recommend
bottom line
she's delusional in feeling that she's special and exempt from the rules that apply to the rest of the world

ESA's are no longer legal, in any state, as a "service animal". Do your research TMZ and Virgin.

This dog trend died out long ago. Only idiot chicks who are attention whores have dogs. And when I see chicks with dogs like this I automatically assume they have mental issues

Here is the proof needed for FRAUD. And her quack, so called DR. should loose his status as he is clearly unfit for the job.

I'd rather sit next to her and her purple dogs than a screaming child.
