I’m Sick & Need Help
… Wants To Enroll In Mental Health Program

Tommie Lee says she needs help for serious mental issues … and now her legal team is trying to enroll her in a mental health program.
According to legal docs, obtained by TMZ, an attorney for the former ‘Love & Hip Hop’ star is petitioning the court in her child abuse case to allow Tommie to get treatment for a serious mental illness. She says she was diagnosed before or around the same time as she was charged with child abuse, and her condition is a significant part of her case.
Tommie says she’s willing to meet a long list of requirements to enter the program, such as staying sober, submitting to random drug testing and attending self-help meetings. It’s the first step in a month-long process … applications are considered by a committee, which includes a prosecutor, and it will take about 30 days to decide Tommie’s fate.
While Tommie doesn’t reveal her specific diagnosis in the docs … when she sat down with our Raquel Harper for a 2016 episode of “Raq Rants,” Tommie said she was bipolar.
Sounds like Tommie really is serious about getting herself some help … after she showed up drunk to court last month, she promised to seek treatment.
