Jamie & Lynne Spears still have love for Dr. Phil.
The family is now denying that a person who went on the CBS Early Show this week is their spokesperson.
A Spears source feeds Entertainment Tonight this spin:
A source close to the Spears family tells ET that BRITNEY's parents urged Dr. PHIL McGRAW to visit their daughter while she was hospitalized at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center last Saturday.
The family source further contended that it was parents' JAMIE and LYNNE as well as her brother BRYAN's idea to appear on McGraw's show to discuss Britney's downward spiral, and that they backed out of the appearance after details of the hospital visit hit the media. Britney, the source tell us, found Dr. Phil "really cool" and even took his number and said she'd like to call him in the future. LOU TAYLOR, who launched angry rhetoric against Dr. Phil on Wednesday, according to the source is not Lynne Spears' spokesperson.
When ET reached Britney's manager SAM LUTFI to comment on the above info, he confirmed it.
We just LOVE how Osama is Brit's manager now! Officially.
He probably has no idea where she is!
