Well known pop star, Britney Spears was admitted to Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for psychiatric evaluation as part of a child-custody dispute with ex-husband Kevin Federline, who temporarily had sole legal and physical custody of the couple’s children. Dr. Phil McGraw, well-known talk show host, and friend of the family visited Spears in the hospital on January 7th without Spears consent. McGraw subsequently released a statement where he said his: “Meeting with Britney and some of her family members this morning in her room at Cedars leaves me convinced more than ever that she is in dire need of both medical and psychological intervention. She was released moments before my arrival and was packing when I entered the room. We visited for about an hour before I walked with her to her car. I am very concerned for her.” (Harris 2008)
