Britney Spears

'Medical Issue'

Is Behind Conservatorship

8/23/2012 12:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0823_britney_spears_article_tmzThere's a reason Britney Spears' conservatorship has lasted 4 1/2 years with no end in sight -- it's because she has a serious medical issue that prevents her from making consistently sound decisions ... TMZ has learned.

Documents were filed Tuesday in the conservatorship case, urgently asking the judge to seal certain records.  In the papers, lawyers for the conservators called the records "highly sensitive," adding "irreparable harm and immediate danger" would befall Britney if the documents weren't sealed.

Multiple sources with firsthand knowledge tell TMZ ... the records are medical documents outlining Britney's condition and treatment. 

We're told the singer has a disorder affecting her personality that can affect her state of mind.  We're told she is doing "extremely well" but needs the safety net of a conservatorship.

Sources tell us there is no plan to end the conservatorship, and the judge is completely down with it.

FYI ... there are 2 components of the conservatorship -- the personal and the business.  The personal conservatorship allows Jamie Spears and Jason Trawick to make life decisions for her.  The business conservatorship involves managing Britney's career and fortune.  As for the business side, we're told it will probably go on indefinitely because it has been incredibly successful.

There's a problem here    

Bipolar is the mental illness du jour. She is a manic depressive. A lot of depressives ... a whole lot ... attempt suicide and also quit their meds, which starts the whole ball rolling once again. Pink wig. Head shaved. Offspring held hostage. Not bathing. Need I go on. It's for life baby. As long as those who have to look out for her make sure she is on her meds and steer her to her next lip synching stage event she'll be just fine. Trawick ain't dumb.

Gee ya think it might have something to do with sexualizing her as a pedophile's dream child in her young teens? So she grows up and she's got nothing of herself besides the phantom of entertaining, which is all manufactured and she would pretty much suck at on her own. Poor thing. Off her meds she'd drop like a rock and be dead within a month.

The woman's eyes don't lie. Very, very sad. I think she had a nervous breakdown or has a multiple personality disorder.
