Top Psychologist Predicts Britney's Death in Six Months


Byline: compiled by Teresa G. Martinez

A top psychologist has declared Britney Spears will be dead in six months if she doesn't get the treatment she needs for chronic mood disorder cyclothymia.

Dr. Lillian Glass has gone public with her diagnosis in the hope Spears will read her warning comments and seek medical aid.

The renowned Beverly Hills doctor tells Globe, "Unless Britney is locked away or put into a treatment program, she is going to die in six months -- or even sooner. In my opinion, she suffers from cyclothymia, a chronic mood disorder in which short periods of mild depression are followed by short periods of hypomania. That explains why one minute she (Spears) can appear perfectly sane and the next she's exhibiting totally crazy behavior."

Dr. Glass tells the publication, "She's definitely a candidate for suicide if she isn't treated immediately."

The diagnosis goes some way to explain why Spears suffered an apparent meltdown at her home on January 4, when she locked herself and her baby son in a bathroom at the end of a visitation term and refused to come out for three hours.

The pop star was committed to hospital for a psychological evaluation after the stand-off with police and paramedics.

Spears' erratic behaviour continued this week when she fled a Los Angeles courthouse after refusing to testify in a crucial custody hearing.

As a result, she lost visitation rights to her two young sons until the next hearing on Feb. 19.

Angelina & Brad plan a movie together?

Hollywood couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are hoping to star in another movie together. The actors met while filming 2005 action film "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" and after Pitt finalized his divorce from Jennifer Aniston in August 2005, the pair announced they were dating.

Jolie insists she enjoyed working with Pitt and is hoping they will be able to repeat their bigscreen success with a future project. She says, "We liked filming together and we have got our eyes open if it comes our way."

Pitt and Jolie now have three adopted kids -- Maddox, six; Pax, three, and Zahara, two -- and their biological child, 20-month-old Shiloh.

Lindsay Lohan to work in morgue

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Lindsay Lohan is about to see dead people. The 21-year-old actress will soon be working at a morgue as part of her punishment for misdemeanor drunken driving, her attorney, Blair Berk, told a judge Thursday.

She has also spent two months in rehabilitation and has done some community service, Berk said at a hearing on her progress toward fulfilling the terms of her plea bargain. Her two four-hour days at the morgue are part of a court-ordered program to show drivers the real-life consequences of drinking and driving. She must also spend two days working in a hospital emergency room.

Lohan was arrested twice last year on DUI charges and pleaded guilty in August to misdemeanor drunken driving and cocaine charges. She has already served 84 minutes in jail as part of the plea deal. Lohan was not required to appear at Thursday's hearing. …
