Britney Spears, who has been embarked upon a very public and prolonged saga of self destruction and drug and alcohol abuse, was released from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center last night to the custody of TV head expert Doctor Phil.
“Dr. Phil” McGraw said Britney Spears, though now free of the hospital, still needs psychological help.
Dr. McGraw is the psychologist known for his own shrink show – one of the most watched daytime TV shows seen mostly by women.
Miss Spears was taken by ambulance from her Hollywood home Friday night because of a dispute involving the two sons she had with ex-husband Kevin Federline.
“My meeting with Britney and some family members this morning in her room at Cedars leaves me convinced more than ever that she is in dire need of both medical and psychological intervention,” said the brilliant Dr. McGraw.
“She was released moments before my arrival and was packing when I entered the room. We visited for about an hour before I walked with her to her car. I am very concerned for her,” he said.
McGraw planned to talk more about Miss Spears on his daytime talk show this week, a press release said.
Isn’t that special.
Responding to an e-mail request for further comment from McGraw, a “Dr. Phil” publicist referred The Associated Press to his statement posted on the etonline.com Web site.
