Experts opine on Britney's mental state



We all know by now that Britney Spears is plum loco, but leave it to People to actually try to figure out which kind of loco.

The mag quotes Dr. Robert Butterworth, a psychologist who hasn’t even treated Brat, as saying “Her erratic behavior has moved into bipolar disorder. Your energy level and emotions alternate between highs and lows, and that seems to have happened here.”

Meanwhile, psychologist Robi Ludwig says her behavior could be the result of drug or alcohol abuse. “It seems that Britney has a mood disorder,” she says. “She strikes me as someone going through a delayed adolescence.”

Thanks for the expert opinions, docs!
