Revealing a shocking diagnosis on Britney Spears
, a renowned psychologist has declared the troubled singer is suffering a chronic mood disorder and will be dead in six months if she does not undergo medical treatment to overcome the illness.
The Beverly Hills doctor is said to expose the diagnosis to public in the hope that the "Toxic" hit-maker will read her warning and be willing to look for medical aid to save her own life.
"Unless Britney is locked away or put into a treatment program, she is going to die in six months - or even sooner," Dr. Lillian Glass told America's Globe. "In my opinion, she suffers from cyclothymia, a chronic mood disorder in which short periods of mild depression are followed by short periods of hypomania."
"That explains why one minute she (Spears) can appear perfectly sane and the next she's exhibiting totally crazy behaviour," Glass added. "She's definitely a candidate for suicide if she isn't treated immediately."
In related news about Spears, Usmagazine.com has learned that prominent news agency the Associated Press (AP) started preparing her obituary within the past month. AP entertainment editor Jesse Washington was quoted to say it's "easily one of the biggest stories in a long time" if the fallen pop star passed away, though he did not wish for it.
"I think one would agree that Britney seems at risk right now," Washington added. "Of course, we would never wish any type of misfortune on anybody and hope that we would never have to use it until 50 years from now...but if something were to happen, we would have to be prepared."
As for latest report about the 26-year-old, four paparazzi were arrested on Wednesday night (Jan. 16) for reckless driving while chasing Spears' car in the San Fernando Valley.
The singer, however, was released after being interviewed by police officers and had her driver's license verified.
