(celebcrust.com) - Britney Spears is featured as the cover story of the latest issue of People magazine with the title "The Real Story of Britney's Mental Illness". The cover story got onto the newsstands past Friday.
The magazine reveals that Britney Spears's family is terrified. A family revealed that, "everyone has been worried for some time," with her continuing to shun longtime friends and relatives. "Her world has been crumbling around her."
There are multiple sources that say the events are the result of a long-gestating mental illness. "She's suffered from a psychological disease for years," says a source close to the singer. Two separate sources close to Spears believe she has been diagnosed as bipolar, while additional sources confirm she has been prescribed at least one antidepressant/anti-anxiety drug.
Yet "she does not think she has a problem," says a source close to Spears. Dr. Mark Goulston, a Santa Monica-based psychiatrist who has not treated Spears, points out that "manic behavior is when you don't have any sense of rules. There's a grandiosity: 'I play by my own rules.' "
The only way to save Britney right now is to probably put her against her will for treatment. What would you do?
