Commissioner Scott Gordon, the judge in Britney Spears’ custody case, has repeatedly ordered the train wreck to undergo a psychological evaluation, but she has refused to comply, according to celebrity news site TMZ.
Here’s the latest from the courtroom:
- Gordon has issued multiple orders – known as a 730 evaluation.
- However, reports say Britney Spears’ family and professionals have devised a plan to get her mental health help … in a “creative way.”
- Given recent events, the Commissioner may not dig that. K-Fed’s lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, who deposed her yesterday, will certainly object.
- If evaluating bipolar disorder is done pursuant to a 730 evaluation, results are submitted to the court. If Gordon accepts an alternative treatment, the doctor-patient privilege could prevent info from making its way to court.
Britney Spears, seen here with Sam Lutfi, has refused mental help.
The likely scenario? Kevin Federline and Mark Vincent Kaplan will fight to make sure the singer does not bypass the 730 evaluation process.
That could make it unlikely for Britney Spears to win a bid to regain visitation rights with Sean Preston and Jayden James “in a therapeutic setting,” which her attorneys are expected to argue for tomorrow morning in court.
