Is Britney Spears Bipolar?

From stripping down to her skivvies for a July 18 dip in the Pacific to melting down at a July 19 photo shoot for OK! Magazine, Britney Spears could hardly be classified as stable.

What could be plaguing the pop tart?

“Her erratic behavior has moved into bipolar disorder,” surmises psychologist Dr. Robert Butterworth, who has not treated Spears, 25.

“Your energy level and emotions alternate between highs and lows, and that seems to have happened here.”

Psychologist Robi Ludwig, who also hasn’t treated her, agrees – to a point.

“It seems that Britney has a mood disorder,” she says, acknowledging that the singer’s behavior is “self-destructive, erratic and dramatic,” which could also be symptomatic of drug and alcohol abuse.

She added: "She strikes me as someone going through a delayed adolescence."

    my money is on borderline personality disorder and polysubstance abuse. It looks like Jaden James has Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, and her behaviour isn't as consistently bizarre (thus far) as in someone who is manic. But she could latch on to the diagnosis of bipolar disorder (when she finally ends up in hospita) to gain public sympathy and avoid responsibility for er actions.

    Britney Spears needs to stop acting like she is hot shit. I mean.. she is never going to be popular again. I can't wait for the year 2009 when Britney Spears is not on any magazine or anything. She has like NO back up plan either when you music career goes in the stinker.

    I feel no pity for this mother who drives around with her child in her lap.

    Britney is over.

    I've been saying that for weeks! she needs some serious help. like being bi-polar isn't funny (cause my friend has it) but i mean how did it get this bad? because her parents and friends are idiots

  33. lor says – reply to this


    33

    I have bipolar disorder and, in fact, I am a patient of Dr. Ludwig. She is accurate to say that without examination she cannot say with certainty what ails Brit. But I have posted all along that she is bipolar because it takes one to know one. If she does have it, like mine, it is a very mild case and highly treatable. You should not use pejorative language when describing mental illness, its 2007.

  34. beebo says – reply to this


    34

    I've said this from the beginning and I'm glad it's finally coming out. Because I'm friends with Kevin and his family (and Shar's), I normally just tell him my opinion and he brushes it off. But with every new day he's starting to see she's NOT getting better and she DOES have issues. Last night the two of us were watching some entertainment show and, yet, another crazy story came on about her….and I saw the realization go off in his head. She isn't just rebelling she has mental issues….she's not all there.

    I am a person with bipolar disorder (manic depression), and was diagnosed many, many years ago. It is a complex and serious mental illness. The episodes you have can be extremely damaging not only to yourself, but family and friends as well.

    Now, with that being said, you still wouldn't catch me in that crazy-ass wig!

    It takes several years to get a true bipolar diagnosis.

  48. CATHAZAT says – reply to this


    48

    Yup…I'd wager on borderline personality disorder which can also include traits/symptoms of bipolarity. Usually attacks girls in their teens/late teens. Drugs/alcohol don't help and can make manias worse, etc. Impulsivity can be a huge trait as can self-destructive behaviors (eating disorders, cutting, addictions). Usually marked by a disconnect and often an unresolved situation of childhood abuse. My bet is that poor Brit will soon become the poster child for this misunderstood, little known mental illness.

    It makes sense.. one minute you are very happy, on top of the world.. and then out of no where your emotions plummet to the ground. That poor girl.. she needs to get help.. for her kids sakes. Look at her nails.. she is really feeling anxious and stressed.

    Any right that she had to go through a "delayed adolescence" disappeared after she had kids. She is sick and completely fucked up and her kids don't deserve to be put through that.

    IT DOENS'T TAKE A DR TO SEE SHE IS BIPOLAR. I AM ALSO BIPOLAR AND CAN SPOT ANOTHER WITH MY CONDITION A MILE AWAY..KINDA LIKE GAYDAR..U KNO? I FEEL FOR HER BECASUE MOST W/ BIPOLAR DON'T KNO IT AND USUALLY THEY GO UNTREATED. I WAS MUCH LIKE HER BEFORE TREATMENT…NOW?? NO MORE CRAZY! LOVE UR SITE SPEND HOURS ON IT EVERY DAY! XXOOXXOO

  57. CATHAZAT says – reply to this


    57

    PS I agree with Doc Cherry above. (see my other previous posting) Also, sadly, she should be treated for her symptoms and a diagnosis doesn't really matter because ultimately, mental illness or not, SHE is responsible for her actions. She needs a good therapist, the right combination of meds, and a supportive family environment to achieve health and well-being. Because of her money she can feed her shopping and addictive impulses and it will utlimately either destroy her or her children if she doesn't get help.

  58. Vicki says – reply to this


    58

    to be bipolar would mean that you'd have to have very low lows. She has never been out of the spotlight long enough to explain any depressive "can't get out of my bed" symptoms. She has a major drug and alcohol problem which is making her look crazy.

  59. josie says – reply to this


    59

    Please hear me out on this: Keep in mind that i am not a Britney fan but just a human being watching another person "losing it" in front of the world. Between this headline and the one about Britney and her wanting her sons teeth whitened, i am really beginning to feel worried about this girl. I mean it in this sense: There is a witch hunt going on right now and everyone is out to find things to make her look bad-even if she donated an organ to someone she would still be attacked. She is obviously mentally unstable at this point and i cant help but wonder if she will feel pushed into doing something to herself. She must feel backed into a corner and no way out. I think if i was her I would take my money and run away to a place where i can live in peace and get myself back on track again. Unfortunately, she cant even do that because of her custody battle. I just feel like i am watching a DISASTER unfold and at the end we will all feel sick about the conclusion………

    #38 (Mike) Your wrong. It's not about making a comeback anymore. She is beyond that point. Her chance was when she got married….remember?? She was still "normal". You cannot feel bad because the last time I checked she lives in a place where the paps are EVERYWHERE! She has enough money to move to a remote place and chill with her boys. I think half of the reason she has not done that is because she thrives on fame. If she moves she knows no one will follow. She needs the attention right now. And I believe bi polar is a possibility.

    Britney Spears was robbed of her adolesence by greedy record companies… she is a mess because she was used so badly , she doesn't know who she can trust, everyone around her has sold out on her for money . No one could withstand that kind of betrayal - she is melting down and rightly so . God Bless her and her children.

    If we are going to be armchair psychologists, how about histrionic personality disorder: Excessive emotional display, attention-seeking behavior, dependency on the support and approval of others and a constant search for novelty and excitement.

    I'm no doctor, but I've been saying this for months. Of course, it takes an actual doctor and weeks of therapy to get to the bottom of her problems before an accurate diagnosis is given. When and if that does happen, I will not be surprised if she is in fact deemed bipolar.

    To all of you Scientology posters. Let me say this from first hand experience within my realm of the world: mental illness IS real, biochemical imbalances DO exist, and the brain can not do well without seratonin (a known hormone in the body), just for starters. When you can show me your Klingon alien being that John Travolta played in that dumb SciFi pic a few years ago, I might believe you. Sorry, but I had too many bad experiences with Scientologists trying to give me and my friends "psychological profiles" in London. You try to convert gays to being not gay through your "programming", you have NO idea how some people truly suffer with mental illness or other personality disorders. And I'm willing to bet that Katie Holmes had major post-partum last summer and that one reason they became so close with Brooke Shields after 'all of that' was because Brooke helped her through it (and probably got her the right meds). So get off your cultish, brainwashed high horses and deal with reality!

    coming from someone in the mental health field, i think it is extremely irresponsible and unethical for these "psychologists" to make (or imply) diagnoses. i question their credentials because anyone who went through six years of postgraduate training would know that you can't diagnose someone without having adequate one-on-one contact and certainly not by falling the news (least of all, perezhilton.com and the like)! unfortunately, lay people will buy into these diagnoses as they lack the proper training to recognize the sheer absurdity. tsk tsk "doctors", tsk tsk.

    Don't give bipolar people a bad name. Frankly, given her record, Ludwig's guess — She added: “She strikes me as someone going through a delayed adolescence.” — seems right on. I'd guess borderline personality disorder and drugs/drinking… take a look at the kids.

    Delayed Adolescence? Well you took the words right out of my mouth. Ive been saying this for months, Im not 100% sure she is bi-polar but she does have some kind of mental health issue, this woman is not sane. Do you see Christina Agulaira acting like this? She seems to act as if she is being followed around cause she is oh my god, Brittney Spears the teen idol, who everyone loves and adores, guess what Brittney? your being followed around cause you are like a animal at the zoo, or let me change that one thats to nice, your like a freak at the circus that we all have to see cause we cant beleive it, we dont like you but we must see this trainwreck derail. Get over it Brittney, you are not Madonna and you wont be singing in front of millions of fans in twenty years with a knockout figure, you had your fun, now move over cause your a wasting our time! Sorry if I come off mean, but it just blows me away that this woman has all this money and opportunitys and she just blows it every time, not to mention she disrespects her own mom.

    If people would lay off her and let her alone, she just might get her shit together. I couldn't TAKE people following me around, hounding me, taking pictures, saying crap about taking away my children, etc. without having a meltdown. People are freaking driving the poor gal nuts. She can't trust anybody..that alone would make me nuts. I don't think those children are suffering. They don't look unhappy to me. The world is full of asshole who WANT her to fail, so they can sell more rag mags and write more crap about her. Assholes.

  88. INSIDER says – reply to this


    88

    Don't be fooled. Britney and her "peeps" often tell the paparazzi where she be. She courts them. Craves the attention. That can be part of the disorder too: whether histrionic or borderline or narcissistic. My bets are on borderline with traits of bipolarity. And yup, borderlines can act like pre-adolescents because they often developmental "stop" at the age of trauma. In her case, likely the shock of fame and being oversexualized at a young age. Abused by her handlers and parents who allowed her to be this young little Lolita sex toy.

    I think everyone should leave Britney alone.I'm a fan (even though I used to be an even bigger fan in 2005). I think that all of these magazines are overexaggerating because they expect her to be perfect. She may have problems, just like the rest of us. She's a normal human being. And yes, I think she is a better parent than that bum K-Fed.
