Oscar Pistorius may be forced to take a psychiatric evaluation!

We've seen plenty of pauses and breaks in the action in Oscar Pistorius' murder trial so far, and it looks like there's a chance we'll see an even bigger delay soon.

Prosecutor Gerrie Nel filed a motion in court today and argued the paralympian should be forced to undergo a 30-day psychiatric evaluation to make sure his mental health wasn't a factor in the shooting of Reeva Steenkamp.

This came after psychiatrist Merryll Vorster testified today and yesterday and went into great detail on how Oscar's past could have affected his mental state up to this point.

She started at his childhood, saying he could have viewed the amputation of his legs as

Amber Portwood Has Been Released From The Hospital

Amber Released From Hospital

This morning, Teen Mom Amber Portwood was released from the hospital after a suicide attempt on Tuesday.

It's necessary in a lot of cases that those who have attempted suicide be held for 72 hours for psychiatric evaluations before they're released. So this isn't uncommon at all.

We really really do wish she gets well, as suicide should never be the answer. There is always help, somewhere. For Amber, this is how:

"The amount of positive support and energy has been overwhelming. An email account has been set up for those who would like to send well wishes to Amber herself. Your support is too special to pass up. All emails will be screened and any positive message will be printed and given to Amber - thinkingofamber@gmail.com.”

Amber, a lot of people are thinking of you. We wish you well, and hope you have a great recovery and go on to lead the happy life you deserve.

Get well soon, your baby misses you!

Brit Brit's Off The Hook! Sam Lufti Shut Down In Court AGAIN!

Filed under: Britney SpearsLegal Matters

sam-lufti-shut-down-in-court-again

Phew!

Sam Lufti has once again struck out in his attempts to get Britney Spears to testify on his behalf in his defamation lawsuit against her parents, as El Lay Superior Court Judge Zaven Sinanian refused his attorney's request to have the pop star undergo an independent psychological evaluation, as it would infringe upon sealed orders from Judge Reva Goetz, who is responsible for her conservatorship!

Furthermore, Sinanian also refused the request to obtain child-visitation reports and drug test results from 2008, which Lufti claims would prove that he wasn't slipping Spears drugs back when he was her 'manager.'

Good! Keep him away from her!

We think it's disgusting that he would even TRY to slither his way back into her life, just as she's really starting to shine again!

Guess you're on your own!

Too bad! So sad!

Brit Brit Won't Have To Appear In Court With Sam Lufti!

Filed under: Britney SpearsLegal Matters

Although her former manager, Sam Lufti, had been attempting to force Britney Spears to give a deposition on his behalf in his lawsuit against her parents for breach of contract, defamation, and libel, the pop star will NOT have to, nor will she have to appear at the trial for testimony!

According to a letter from her attorney, Joel Boxer:

"While I am of course willing to engage in further dialogue with you concerning this topic, the record is clear: Plaintiff noticed Ms. Spears deposition, pursuant to the order of April 27, 2011 issued by Judge Goetz, the Co-Conservators may not produce her (Britney Spears) for deposition or trial testimony in the Lutfi litigation. Based on the findings of Judge Goetz — grounded in three years of supervision over the Conservatorship and the Conservatee as well as the recent report from an expert selected by the Court….. the Co-Conservators respectfully submit that Plaintiff's motion for an IME (independent medical exam) of Ms. Spears should be denied."

Furthermore, Boxer is asking the court to impose sanctions on Lufti and award attorney's fees - $9300 - to the conservatorship!

However, it's still unclear as to whether or not Brit will have to be evaluated by an independent psychiatrist, and a hearing has been set for June 15th to determine what to do!

Good! She shouldn't have to go anywhere near that creep!

Here's hoping that they she won't have to!

Sam Lufti Wants Brit Brit To Testify In His Defamation Lawsuit!

sam-lufti-wants-britney-spears-to-testify-in-his-defamation-lawsuit

This guy is a real piece of work. Hasn't he put this poor girl through enough?

Sam Lufti, who manipulated his way into the role of Britney Spears' manager while she was going through her issues and basically took advantage of her mental condition, has been pursuing a defamation lawsuit against her mother, Lynne Spears, for publishing just that in her memoir, Through The Storm.

Apparently, he's now trying to get the pop star on the stand to give a deposition, but her team has resisted, claiming she is mentally incapable of doing so. Therefore, on Monday, he asked a judge to have a pyschiatric evaluation of her to that the claims are not true, due to her recent lucid interviews and upcoming tour.

According to a declaration to the court by UCLA Assistant Professor of Psychiatry Joshua Retsky, who analyzed the singer's recent behavior on behalf of Lufti:

"In the Ryan Seacrest interview, which was recorded approximately two months ago, Britney Spears is interviewed at length, and she responds logically and coherently to questions, evidencing logical thinking and mental competency. The edited interviews in the [MTV] video documentary also evidence coherent and logical thinking, responsiveness to questions, and mental competence … In my opinion, there is good cause to conduct an Independent Medical Examination to investigate the Conservators' claim that Ms. Spears is not mentally capable of testifying, and the claim that she was not mentally competent to enter into a binding contract. …"

Yes, this all may be true, but that doesn't mean she should have to be thrown into a room with that man again!

It's clear that our Brit Brit has come a long way, and has made an amazing recovery from her issues thus far, but we imagine she's still got a long way to go - and there's no need to have to endure the added stress of a man who enabled her when she was at her absolute worst!

Can't he just leave her alone?! Ugh.

Absolutely deplorable!

What do U think?? Should Brit Brit be forced to testify?
