Britney Spears is suffering from some sort of bipolar disorder.
By now everyone from Adnan Ghalib to the average celebrity news reader has to understand that much. But what, if anything, will she do about it?
For months, Commissioner Scott Gordon, the judge in her custody case, has ordered her to undergo psychological tests. She has not complied.
As we reported yesterday, Spears was shot down in her attempt to regain visitation rights with sons Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1.
Her divorce lawyers have devised an "alternative" plan to get Britney Spears into treatment, and while it has not worked to this point, sources now say it's got at least a glimmer of hope - and it's an outpatient treatment.
The attorneys believe it would allow professionals to "evaluate and treat" her. Spears is reportedly "receptive" to the idea, but it's not a done deal.
If it happens, the process will start immediately, reports TMZ.
Britney's lawyers were reported to be trying to get off her custody case as soon as possible, but evidently had a change of heart. The firm, Trope and Trope, is not filing to withdraw as counsel and will remain at the helm.
