Dr. Phil: Lynne Spears Called Me to Help Britney

by at . Comments

Dr. Phil says Lynne Spears called and asked him to intervene before Britney Spears was released from L.A.'s Cedars-Sinai Medical Center Saturday.

"I want to set the record straight. I went to see Britney Spears at the request of her family. I talked to Lynne, [father] Jamie Spears and [brother] Brian Spears because they were frustrated that she wasn't going to be held for a longer time," Dr. Phraud said on CBS' The Early Show this morning.

So, just so we understand this: Britney Spears' mother - despite her daughter being treated at a world-class hospital - decides to call Dr. f*%king Phil!?

Sad, but true. Dr. Phil â€" who will devote a show to the troubled singer this week â€" says he got looped in after Britney was rushed to the hospital.

"Thursday night, the phone rang, it was Lynne. Clearly she was very upset, as any parent would be," he said. "I was first contacted by her family a year ago and had maintained a running dialogue for the last year or so."

While Lynne Spears continues her relentless, decade-long effort to cash in on her daughter at every turn, Britney's father has been falling apart at the seams.

He and his eldest daughter have had a rocky relationship, but with ex-wife Lynne and daughter Jamie-Lynn Spears already traveling back to Louisiana, he was the sole family member present for Britney's mental evaluation.

After keeping close watch of his daughter at Cedars-Sinai hospital, Jamie Spears broke down in tears shortly after her discharge Saturday morning.

"Jamie was really upset," a source says, "He was in tears. When he got to the house and realized the situation there, it broke him down."

Jamie Spears, who supported Dr. Phil's visit, "thought he understood what was going on. He doesn't know what to do. Everyone is trying to figure out the best thing to do, but who knows what that is now."

She recorded live vesniors of the vocals for the tour, and ALL of these press releases that are coming from her camp that claim she is singing live are complete and utter bullshit. This is how much she thinks of her fans, not only to not give them their money's worth, but to blatantly lie about it like you're all idiots. It's despicable. They say she's sings about 40% of the show live bwahahaha!! Oh, ok, so she should get credit for actually singing less than half the show? What a tool.

What Brtiney spears needs in not to be exposed anymore and let her get the help she needs quitly.
And for the public to leave her alon. I am a single mother of three children and I am 26 yrs old. I know exactly what she is going through. What her family needs to do cut off everyone that is and has been a negaitve influence on her and only surround her with people that are positive. She is not far gone trust me if I can do it so can she. One piece of advice to Britnry Spears, is to look deep down inside your heart and think of all the good things to live for, and when you come up with the answer, then you fight you fight with everything you got.

Star Jones' comment and verbal slap at Dr. Phil as being "a TV psychirist" was totally un-called for, catty and juvenile. I guess this was from a "TV atty?"
