Britney Spears’ lawyers will make a request tomorrow for Britney to have “monitored visitation in a therapeutic setting.” Britney’s family and friends apparently are successfully encouraging Britney to get mental health help for bipolar disorder in a “creative way.” Britney has previously refused the judge’s requests to undergo a 730 mental evaluation. If the judge agrees to Britney’s current plan, it could prove troublesome for Kevin’s lawyers, according to TMZ:
Evaluating bipolar disorder is a long process. If it’s done pursuant to a 730 evaluation, the results are submitted to the court. If the Commish were to accept the alternative form of treatment, a doctor-patient privilege could prevent certain information from making its way to the court (unless the privilege is waived).
Here’s the likely scenario based on what we’re hearing: K-Fed (and probably the court) will not want Brit to bypass the 730 evaluation process. That could make it unlikely for Brit’s lawyers to win a bid to regain visitation in a therapeutic setting.
I don’t see the harm in letting Britney have the therapeutic visitation. But, if she starts speaking in a British accent, the shrink has the right to mace Britney in the mouth. Also the children alternate turns wearing a football helmet and brass knuckles to each visit. Or, wait, scratch all that. Is it legal to have a tiger in an office building? For arguments sake, let’s say it’s wearing a lab coat and stethoscope.
