Dr. Phil Blindsided Britney Spears At Cedars

The Britney Spears saga is turning into a bad soap opera and at this point it’s no longer entertaining. As we reported yesterday, Britney Spears was released from Cedars Hospital and here’s the real scoop on what really went down with Dr. Phil and his visit.

According to TMZ, Dr. Phil walked into Britney’s room at 7:30 am on the 7th floor at Cedars uninvited and completely blindsided the pop star. According to People magazine, Britney’s father Jamie was the one who pushed Dr. Phil to intervene since he believes Dr. Phil is a “God”.

When Dr. Phil walked into the pop wrecks room, Britney walked out and eventually came back. Sources reveal to TMZ that Phil tried speaking with Spears for about 15 minutes -- not an hour as Dr. Phil's press release states. Britney wasn't too receptive from his visit and wanted none of it.

In regards to Dr. Phil walking the pop princess to her car as his release states, TMZ confirmed there is no truth to that. Sources say,” if he was walking behind her, that's news to her. She absolutely was not accompanied by him.”

The sad part about this story is Dr. Phil has convinced Brit's mom and dad to be on his show, which will tape Monday and air Tuesday. According to sources, don’t count on Britney to be on his show. "Based on the interaction between Dr. Phil and Britney this morning, it'll be a cold day in hell before Britney goes on his show."

Here is our take on this mess. It’s a pathetic move by Dr. Phil to barge into Britney’s hospital room in order to help her. A true psychologist would try to help a person when they are down, not publicize their troubles and put them on air. The only thing Dr. Phil will be helping is his ratings.

Maybe this is the reason why Britney is in the mess she is today. If people around her would focus less on the public attention and more on the “situation” itself, then Britney could be saved. Since when do people walk into hospital rooms without any permission? I guess being a celebrity opens a lot of doors for you, even critical ones.
