Britney’s dad claimed she has dementia to get her on Conservatorship ASAP

But documents show she does not have dementia...

[quote]Mr Spears had ticked a box saying it related to “dementia placement or treatment”.

Interesting. All these years we'd assumed it was mental health placement or drug treatment, and instead he said her diagnosis was "dementia," which was clearly not her problem.

Supposedly there were rumors that the diagnosis was "dementia" for years on some Britney fan sites, and no one seriously believed it. Now I'm wondering who leaked that info.

Dementia? Low IQ, mentally challenged (retarded) more than likely

by Anonymousreply 13Last Saturday at 8:28 AM

I worked with special needs kids and if she's challenged she's pretty high functioning. Remembering dance routines and lyrics and being able to keep herself at a relatively high level of grooming indicates she's doing well. However, if she does have some challenges and also has some emotional issues, she probably needs some kind of court-ordered assistance to keep her from being taken advantage of.

I don't think she has dementia. I just thought her as slow but harmless (Anna Nicole Smith). Now, she just seems scared and uncomfortable when interacting with the media which could be why she always seems 'off' in photos/videos. I still don't see the (public) incidences of her 'crazy' behavior as a evidence that she lost her mind. Given the amount of attention she was receiving and the way the media was constantly after her, I just see it as someone reaching the end of their rope and lashing out. I actually think this is why she's come to prefer the conservatorship: She's gotten far less negative and invasive public attention after being placed in one and still gets to perform.

She had her kids taken away from her when they were very young and sole custody was awarded to Kevin Federline. That’s a red flag that she had serious mental problems, for a judge to that when the legal system almost always sides with the bio mother.

An old blind item-type gossip around the time of the head shaving alleged that a huge pop star who recently lost it, was diagnosed bipolar schizophrenic but was drinking, doing drugs, not taking her meds and fucking everyone in sight. She would sometimes go to the velvet rope clubs in LA and get fucked by 2-3 guys a night in the bathroom. She really started to unravel when she found out she was POZ.

R26, if she was really a “functioning adult”, as you claim, she wouldn’t have needed “somebody on her side” and wouldn’t have “wasted away her fortune”. Most functioning adults are capable of managing their own lives or hiring people to do the things that are beyond their abilities. Britney is not capable of managing her own life.

I find it hard to believe that a judge has not reviewed any neuropsychological testing or any neurologic expert testimony— there has to be something there before anybody can say somebody has dementia. Bipolar and schizophrenia are more vague imo. Unless her dementia is drug induced, like meth.

r29, again, you and others are using past tense talking about things that happened ages ago. Its time to move on. Britney is about to be 40 years old and you are talking about stuff that happened in her 20s. I'm sure if I pulled up a file on some of you bitches in your 20s you'd earn a conservatorship as well.

And besides all of this, her dad is almost 70. In another couple of years he'll probably be dead, as he is already in poor health. Then what? Even if she remains in this insane setup, its time to change guard. They don't need to wait until he dies to do it.

R17 I just read one or two of the recent Forbes stories done on Britney, and saw nothing where you said she was once worth $500 million.

Not saying it's not true, because this is Britney Spears we're talking about. But I didn't see it.

I remember watching "The Fabulous Life of Britney Spears" on VH1 back in the early 00s, and at the end of her episode, they said she was worth $100 million then.

So what happened to all of her money? Someone like Britney at this point in her career and life and as big of deal she was during her heyday. I'd expect she'd have a fortune in the neighborhood of at least $400/$600 million bucks.

She's being robbed blind by everyone it sounds like. If she's not going to preform, she should seriously consider getting into merchandising using her name and imagery. She could get a team of really good graphic designers and illustrators and they could create some really beautiful tshirts long sleeved shirts hats beach towels etc. and launch it through ecommerce. I bet she'd make a killing. The fans would eat it up.

But she'd need to have full ownership of that venture.

by Anonymousreply 52Last Sunday at 8:33 AM

I think too much focus is on her money and not her well being. Even if she ends up living a more modest life, she can at least have her independence as a middle aged woman. To me that is worth more than being wealthy.

There are so many celebrities out there who go through financial bloodletting at some point. While they might not have an extremely lavish lifestyle afterwards, they are still more comfortable than most people.

He's a fool. If he had told the truth (she is a talentless slag who suffers from severe mental retardation), now he wouldn't be in trouble... Apparently, Britney takes after her dad as far as brains are concerned. 😂

Now, seriously, we should clarify a couple of things: first of all the net worth of many celebrities is grossly inflated, for promotional purposes. God knows how much money she must have had before the conservatorship, and how much she blew away in nonsense during drunken stupors and drug-induced chaos. I'm sure that Sam Lufti wasn't the only one leeching off her. USD 52 million is more than enough for someone who hasn't had a hit in over a decade, used to throw money around like it was water (did anyone read the papers during her divorce from Kevin Federline? She used to spend a fortune on ridiculous nonsense every month), and needs to pay a fortune in lawyers.

Finally, I am surprised by the fascination that she inspires in so many people... Why? She is not a beauty like Marilyn Monroe, doesn't have talent or charisma (let's not even mention intelligence), and has never done anything unique by celebrity standards. Could it be that people who barely manage to reach the lower end of mediocrity, see themselves reflected in her and live their dreams of stardom vicariously, through her? Otherwise, I cannot understand it.

r54 I think it depends on what age group you are in. If you grew up in the late 90s/00s Britney Spears was a teen idol of course. It had nothing really do with her talent level, she was a record label product put at the forefront of pop culture at that time like her peers Christina, Justin Timberlake and Beyonce. As an adult now I have appreciation of their work, despite not listening any of their music. They just represent a time in my life and make me reminiscent.

by Anonymousreply 56Last Sunday at 9:19 AM

R56 Agreed. I was born in the late 80s grew up in the 90s and entered my teen years during the early 00s. So absolutely these people bring back memories from those years in my life, just like you.

I think Britney has schizophrenia. Psychotic symptoms like halluciations or paranoia can mostly be controlled with meds, but what often leads to people needing long-term assistance are the so-called 'negative symptoms'. From what I know, they tend to persist, or even get worse with each psychotic episode.

I think there’s more there than they’re willing to release to the public and maybe Britney had bouts of dementia brought on by serious side facets of strong medication and we’re not seeing the entire picture. I also read that what was working previously isn’t anymore and it’s difficult with schizophrenia to recalibrate the meds.

We’ve also seen three serious financial downturns in the economy the past twenty five years and I’m guessing her financial people cannot turn on a dime with their financial decisions. It’s possible she lost a lot of money in the market or with real estate decisions. People invest more prudently without employment and money flow, folks.

They’ve been very careful revealing too much about her mental state but it’s really skating on the edge now and could go either way. I think the stans are bloodthirsty and this will become a Salem Witch Trial where rumors, hearsay and allusions really mess everything up. Whatever is released publicly won’t be enough for these people and even if Britney pleads for her privacy, they’re going to claim she was “forced” to. Some of the people in the documentary seem completely unhinged and have nothing better going on in their lives and love the spotlight on them, it’s unnerving and sad.

by Anonymousreply 69Last Sunday at 2:21 PM

I’m inclined to agree with R67.

There’s no way anyone that young would be placed in a conservatorship (with kids taken away?!?) without some very strong argument for doing so.

Remaining under a conservator would be highly unusual, especially in this day and age, with a celebrity that famous.

Frankly, I feel the whole hoopla surrounding the #FreeBritney movement is designed to maximize keeping her name in the news, and maintaining a mystique that will come in quite handy for marketing purposes.

Why do people keep assuming that the courts just took her father's word for it without having a third-party medical expert provide an evaluation? Is there proof that they didn't bother to have her evaluated or is this just speculation?

People claim the proof that she was setup is that a conversatorship for someone that young is irregular, but perhaps that actually points to how serious Britney's condition is?

How does the public know her father is profiting off of her? I remember seeing something once that showed how much he was getting paid to be her caretaker, and it was supposedly less than he was earning running his restaurants (?). Did something get leaked about other money he was getting or stealing?

I haven't followed any of this so genuinely asking.

Also someone commented upthread that she's too young to have dementia.. It wouldn't be uncommon for her to have exhibited signs of dementia in her early 30's and it wouldn't necessarily prohibit her from being able to perform.

Doesn't mental illness run in her family? I remember someone mentioning that her Grandmother had some sort of mental illness and killed herself in her early-30s.

by Anonymousreply 72Last Sunday at 2:46 PM

[quote]Why do people keep assuming that the courts just took her father's word for it without having a third-party medical expert provide an evaluation?

Well even if it was dependent on a medical expert, that evaluation captured her mental state many, many years ago. Someone's mental state can change significantly over the course of year, let alone over the time this arrangement has been in place. If this that is what the conservatorship was contingent upon, it's time to reevaluate.

by Anonymousreply 73Last Sunday at 2:57 PM

It’s possible past therapies didn’t work or produced serious side effects. Obviously, a doctor or firm ISN”T going to publicly acknowledge nor want to show up on court papers that they treated or evaluated Britney-

1. As a loose cannon, she had a history of prescription, illegal drug abuse. 2. There’s a wild bunch of opinionated people ready to picket out front, hack their systems, or pay off employees for info. 3. There’s honestly no upside to saying you have Britney a a client.

I also question the narrative we are fed that the father is taking advantage. Obviously her extended family is ok with him and like I said, we aren’t privy to a lot of private messy info. Mary!

by Anonymousreply 74Last Sunday at 4:39 PM

R73 but the conservatorship wasn't just set and never looked at again. Hasn't it been renewed several times over the years? Presumably that would mean that medical experts didn't find that her situation had improved.

The same daddy who insisted it's in Britney's best interest to keep working and making the family money, money she doesn't have access to.

Britney isn't asking for no conservatorship last I knew, it was for Jodi Montgomery to remain conservator and not bring her dad back on. She also doesn't want Andrew Wallet, chosen by her father, to remain co-conservator, but wants Bessemer Trust instead because they have a physical office and are cheaper than Wallet is.

R75, part of the problem is that the conservatorship WAS just set and then, over the years, little changes were made here and there, but the best I can tell, there was no full review. There is paperwork filed every two years, but that was the only thing close to a review being done until she started pushing for more freedom in about 2016. There are doctors on the team but they were picked by her father, and she had a court-appointed attorney who made something like $10M over about eight years, which made people question whether she was being represented by someone acting in her interests.

This article in 2016 shows that there are a lot of people close to her who say she's a lot more capable than she's being made out to be.

There is actually more objective evidence for dementia than “too crazy to take care of myself”. If a judge agreed with it, she would have fit criteria (alzheimers, frontotemporal, parkinsons, drug induced) and her neuropsych tests are probably pretty bad. You crazy britbrit stans need to give it a rest, britbrit probably has a mental age of 5 now, and in a few years will be like 2. And yes, she never asked for freedom from conservatorship, she just wanted a change in her conservator. She herself knows she aint got it anymore, she has no mental capacity to take care of herself.
