Britney's main leach Sam Lutfi phoned Barbara Walters and basically told her that Britney has mental issues.
Lutfi said Britney "is starting some kind of treatment" for "mental issues."
"There is a man named Sam Lutfi, who is the manager and very good friend of Britney," Walters told the audience during 'The View' this morning. "He has been staying with her constantly.
"He got in touch with us... I can't vouch for this... He seemed to be very knowledgeable and he certainly was very nice.
"He said Britney was suffering from what he describes as mental issues which are treatable.
"He said that she has been to a psychiatrist and ... I assume she is starting some kind of treatment. She has been having mood swings. She has been having some kind of trouble sleeping."
Lutfi also said that Britney's been "in touch with her mother" Lynne, who arrived in LA on Sunday night. It's definitely a step in the right direction!
