January 5th, 2008 // 39 Comments

UPDATE: In an exclusive statement to ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT and THE INSIDER, Dr. Phil McGraw shares his experience with Britney Spears this morning, “My meeting with Britney and some family members this morning in her room at Cedars leaves me convinced more than ever that she is in dire need of both medical and psychological intervention. She was released moments before my arrival and was packing when I entered the room. We visited for about an hour before I walked with her to her car. I am very concerned for her.”

According to “Entertainment Tonight” and “The Insider” Britney Spears asked to be released from the hospital this morning. Shortly after that, Dr. Phil McGraw entered her room for a visit with Britney and her father. Sources also tell ET and “The Insider” that Dr. Phil walked Britney to her car, where she then returned to her Studio City home. Stay tuned!

Any thoughts about Britney’s future? What will her next move be? Discuss in the comments area.

If you’re extremely hard up for some extremely boring video of the first “sighting” (her car arriving home) from the hospital, the video is after the jump.

    She’ll probably kill herself. Newscasters will sadly relay the news. A&E will do a Biography on her. Her funeral will be televised.

    She’ll be forgotten by March.

    I wish her the best. I hope her Dad is smarter than his wife and stays with her. Hopefully this is the wake up call that everybody needed and will help her get some kind of help.

  5. Whatever happens to her next, the hospital should take the full blame!!!

  6. Melilicious

    Does this seem like a publicity stunt to anyone else but me?

  7. hehe

    I hope she drains in her Latte.

  8. Cat

    Oh good grief, the gril or child I should say needs a spanking!!! After that grow up!!

  9. kellygrrrl

    oh, no. Dr. Phil is going to shove the BuyBull down her STD infected throat.
    now she’s really going to go mental

  10. nonna

    She is completely alone. Sadly, I feel this will bring her to committ suicide. I’m praying for you Britney.

  12. Jenn

    Dumbshits………….,
    You missed the part of the story where they diagnosed her with BIPOLAR DISORDER! Give the whole story not just part. She has a mental health disorder. One that has the highest suicide rate if left untreated. Quit fucking laughing at her. The people out here who said she had mental problems were right. The rest of you are dicks.

  13. MaryAnn

    She was not diagnosed with bipolar, assface. That’s just another website blogger’s guess. Take your meds, now.

  14. Cyndi

    Dr. Phil please help Britney. Everyone should pray for Britney…her heart is broken in a million pieces and she probably doesn’t know who to trust. She is drowning in her own pain. Everyone around her wants something from her. Hopefully the judge will see his way past her cries for help. K-fed needs to have his lawyer back off. Dr. Phil is a step in the right direction.

  15. PinkWeenie

    Dr Phucking Phil? Are you SERIOUS? He’s a bigger publicity whore than she is. He’s like the white Rev Al. I had a smidgen of feel-sorry for her. Until this.

    What a joke.

  16. Jenn

    How much do you want to bet that all of the haters out here hoping the worst for Britney
    are fat, ugly women? Wanna bet on it? People
    who hate on people even when they’re at their worst place in life are cruel, cruel, cruel.
    No one is that cruel unless they hate themselves. Feel sorry for your own “assfaces”. Britney will be fine. Signing off to all you jealous trolls.

  17. jbonz

    There is no doubt that she will lose her kids.That is the main factor to consider.
    Will she flip out and do herself in?
    Or will she finally realize what everyone else has known for the past two years and REALLY get help?
    This is the end result of a child (Britney the Mouseketeer) being shamelessly, callously and pitilessly corrupted, exploited and whored out by the adults in her life (up to and including Michael Eisner). She has NEVER been told “no” by anyone; she has never learned that you can’t always have what you want just because you want it. Her behavior makes it clear that she was convinced that she could jolly well do just as she dammned well pleased and that some “power” would just make everything alright in the end, just like it always has done since she was a Mousketeer. Her only hope now is to grow up and get real. But can she do it?
    I’ve railed against Britney Spears literally from the very first time I ever saw her, back in her “Baby One More Time” days. Not because I have a personal hatred for the girl herself but because it was glaringly obvious to me what she was: a little underage poontang princess being marketed to pedophiles and misguided tween-age girls. I have a daughter myself and the last thing I want is for her to have any respect for Britney Spears whatsoever.
    All you mothers who pushed Britney onto your daughters so enthusiastically back in the day: do you still dream of having a Britney of your own now?

  18. jbonz

    Jenn:
    Your attitude, shared by everyone in Britney’s life, is EXACTLY what put Britney in the hellhole she’s in right now: “Oh, it’s just a passing phase, a bump in the road, something she needs to work through and then she’ll be just like she always was before”.
    Britney needs to STOP being what she was before, FOREVER. NOW.

  19. Jenn's a dumb bitch

    HAHAHAHA you are one dumb troll, Jenn!

  20. Aerobella

    Okay.. it’s getting serious so Britney will finally wake up NOT where she planned, IV in arm, trapped in a short, butt exposing hospital gown, without ciggy’s her morning frappe and car keys.. The gowns okay.. it shows her cute tush, and she’s not having needles give her norishment, she needs the smoke and caffene.. so she is blowing this joint, okay. She’s just bi-polar and bi.. well other things.. so that’s not a crime. She can manage very nicely and will seek her own remedy’s and help from lawyers and managers that will keep her on schedule and free to roam.. well, until she forgets what got her into this mess, this time..

  21. jimi

    MaryAnn is correct. She hasn’t been diagnosed with anything . . . other than stupid. Plus, even if she is bi-polar, it doesn’t explain everything nor does it excuse anything. Funny how she acts “mental” when she needs to be responsible. Never when going for her coffee or out to the clubs or to Taco Bell. Hmm. Convenient.

    Even if she is bi-polar, what are the chances she’ll follow any treatment plan? I think Dianne is right.

  22. Jessica

    If this is a publicity stunt, these people have completely lost their souls to the devil…the Dr.Phil devil, that is. She is supposed to be on his show on Wednesday. How pathetic.

  23. Crackatear

    I hope sure hope all you hypocrites are perfect. You’re all sucking off her celebrity too.

  24. price

    there is quite few nasty comments everyone will kick her while shes down shes only human she is very sick at the moment she dont want to hear this shit at the end of the day nobody knows wats going on behind closed doors no ones perfect including you lot

  25. Chaz

    I hope her future will take place far outside the gaze of the camera. I’m sick of her and couldn’t care less what happens to her. There are too many innocent victims in the world for me to give 2 shits about a spoiled moron who lucked into an entertainment career despite a lack of any talent aside from peddling a phony image.

    If you see her in the pink wig, continuing to drive around aimlessly, or otherwise courting the paparazzi, that will tell you that getting attention is still all she cares about.

    By the way, nice for someone selfless and thoroughly uninterested in headlines like Dr. Phil to stick his nose in this. He’s another whore.

  26. Pray for Brittany and her family….I think this is sad…Brittany is human…Everyone back off on being negative…Brittany will move forward and be fine! I pray that God will give her Peace in her heart and that her faith will grow……LOVE, CALIFORNIA

  27. Hey Cupcake

    The only reason Dr. Phil would be there is to subsequently televise this intervention bullshit. I just wonder, who got him involved? Or is he like the police in that he can just cross the tape and stick his big, bald, stupid head into any situation? I didn’t think this whole story could get any more absurd, but I’m continually proven wrong.

  28. Lola

    I agree with PinkWeenie. Dr. Phil is a bigger publicity whore than Britney is! He doesn’t care about Britney. He just wants to get his name in the paper. Even his dumb ass wife has a book out. Talk about riding on your spouse’s coattails :-(

  29. Lizzle

    wow, this bitch has really lost her got damn mind. i kinda feel bad, for her, but then again i dont. she purposely courts the paparazzi’s attention on the one hand, but on the other, it seems as if she really does have some mental health issues. that sad, she really needs to get the fuck outta LA, ASAP!!!

  30. blah

    How can you blame Britney for Dr. Phil getting involved? This is her parent’s doing. Even while her daughter is batshit crazy, they are still going to a high profile ambulance chaser like Dr. Phil. It’s like her mom loves the attention or something. Very munchausen by proxy sounding to me. It’s not like he knows her personally or anything. I mean, they are both southern but that doesn’t mean they are neighbors or anything. I feel bad that she’s been molded into something that people despise. I wish her the best. She’s got two kids and regardless of how fucked up she is, they are going to miss her if she’s not around.

    my prayers, are there for you kid. you just don’t know which way to turn. Reporter’s –GET AWAY!!!! let her breathe. and where would she be now, if it hadn’t been for all of us, wanting to know, whats going on. buying her stuff, buying the tabloids. and if she’s bi-polar, then lets get her some med’s. get her straightened out. or she might die. and no matter what she is, she is still the boy’s mom. and they need her. she didn’t need k-fed. i feel he just latched on, at the right time. and is he a perfect parent? and yes, i think that she needs some parenting class’es. when did she have time to learn anything, kids don’t come with directions. and then pop star to married life, and she wanted to; settle down. to a regular life. with her husbands help, as a family. where was he?? and who is on her side? I really hope that her dad, helps her and sticks by her side. cb.

    So disturbing on SO many levels.

  34. Zelda F.

    May I add…… for all of us… “there but for the grace of God, go I”. I don’t care how many millions of dollars she has, I wouldn’t want her life. Regardless of whose fault this mess is.

  35. Rain Dance

    Weeelll….
    I agree with you, Zelda F., to a point.

    Brit’s life situation is sad and pathetic and empathizable, but it’s not as if she doesn’t have a zillion resources at her disposal to get better. She’s young and (presumably relatively) physically healthy, with 2 young (presumably relatively) healthy kids she hasn’t yet lost, and millions of dollars, and hopefully, at least ONE person truly concerned about her well-being. Hopefully, SOMEONE with sense (not Dr. Phil or her mom) will take her away to a nice, quiet farm in Georgia for a while. Seriously. Doesn’t she have a Great Aunt Betty or somebody who could spirit her away for a while? It seems like the ONLY thing that might help her is just to be forcibly removed from the L.A. scene entirely.

  36. Mia

    SIMPLY PUT……HEARTBREAKING.
    She is Human just like you and I, placed in this Very abnormal and unnatural situation known as a ‘Celebrity’.
    Poor Girl, I Really hope she makes it out of this one okay.
    No one should be forced into this desparate last hope bottom she has fallen into where she feels her only way out is to kill herself.
    HEARTBREAKING !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Rain Dance: I personally do not know ANYTHING about mental illness; other than working with Crazy Jeannie May J. for 20 years. BUT, I can imagine that someone who is sick, does not realize they are sick. They do not believe they are sick, and do not seek help; regardless of the financial resources available to pay for the help they so desparately need. One has to be cognitive of the situation to seek help. She’s probably NOT cognitive of her mental state, her rapidly deteriorating state. I can only surmize that Brittany is in this situation. I DO agree with those of you who say she is a spoilt child, way too much, way too soon. She obviously craves the media attention. I agree, media whore. But REALLY, all ANY of us know is what we read on dumbass blog sites like this (and is this information truly reliable??? really??? These are people that make a living by making money off the misery of, and ridiculing others)). I’ve done the same, I’m guilty of being judgemental like so many others. HOWEVER, if there is a mental healthe issue, then personally, I think the rules of the game change. And, for the sake of her children, I hope she gets the help she obviously needs. The sins of the mother should not ruin the lives of two totally, innocent children. Would anyone wish that a child grow up without a mother? No, I think not. The woman desperatly needs help. Whether it be de-tox, drug rehab, institutionalization or God. Whatever gets her thru it. Maybe all. But she’s a mess in need of help. For her sake, but mostly for the sake of her children. I would not wish any child to grow up without a (sane) mother.

    She doesn’t really want your prayers, just your rapt attention.
    If anyone has heard that obnoxious and crappy song where she basically says “Everyone look at me! I’m shameless, y’all! Over here!”, then I think we can see her Mensa-level – no, Carny-level plan to stay famous and constantly talked about without the need for that pesky talent thing, or having to produce any art. That sounds way easier when you can’t ever prise the frappachino from your mitts.
