Sam Lutfi: Britney Spears in "Some Kind of Treatment"

by at . Comments

Will we see Britney Spears nude in Blender? The jury is still out.

Is she finally seeking help for myriad mental problems? We'll have to see on that, as well, but her seedy friend seems to think so.

In a phone call to Barbara Walters (really, we're serious), Britney Spears' pal and shady character extraordinaire Sam Lutfi revealed that the troubled pop singer "is starting some kind of treatment" for "mental issues."

"There is a man named Sam Lutfi, who is the manager and very good friend of Britney," Walters said. "He has been staying with her constantly.

THG NOTE: Why on Earth is Barbara Walters talking to Sam Lutfi? She used to be an actual journalist, right? Okay, we now return to Walters' quote ...

"[Sam Lutfi] got in touch with us... I can't vouch for this... He seemed to be very knowledgeable and he certainly was very nice. He said Britney was suffering from what he describes as mental issues which are treatable.

For whatever reason, Sam Lutfi talked to Barbara Walters today and said that Britney Spears is seeking treatment for her worsening mental problems.

Walters continued: "He said she has been to a psychiatrist and ... I assume she is starting some kind of treatment. [Britney Spears] has been having severe mood swings. She has been having some kind of trouble sleeping."

Walters said Sam Lutfi also claims Spears â€" who hasn't seen her sons Sean Preston and Jayden James in three weeks since she lost visitation rights â€" "is in touch with her mother â€" because we had heard that she wasn't â€" and her mother [Lynne Spears, who arrived in L.A. Sunday] has been very supportive."

This is a personal thing. This is serious. This is not another one of your storeis!! This is a person whom God created that is not on this planet to please you. Britney may not be what you expect her to be, but God loves her and HE is her ONLY JUDGE!!! I am glad she is speaking to her mother, I believe alot of prayers that went out for her are bieng answered now and I will continue to pray for Britney and hope for the best for her. Unless you want to be judged with the same HARSHNESS you judge her, you should pray to.
