According to a source that is close to the pop star, Britney Spears has recently checked into a mental health facility in the wake of her father’s colon rupture that seems to be life threatening.
The 37-year-old and her father have always been close and to see her father go through this has been a lot for her to handle and caused her emotional distress.
The singer had announced on Instagram, back in January, that she would be taking a work hiatus from her Las Vegas show to be by father during his illness. It was a difficult decision for her to make, but nonetheless, family comes first.
Britney is supposed to remain at this facility for mental health treatment for a few weeks. She took to Instagram on Wednesday to post a quote that read: “Fall in love with taking care of yourself, mind, body, spirit” with the caption, “We all need to take time for a little ‘me time.’ :)”
Many of her fans rushed to comment on her post in support; wishing her well and sending her prayers. This isn’t the first time Ms. Spears dealt with mental health issues. If you recall, she had a mental breakdown back in 2007 and checked herself into a psych ward in Los Angeles. We truly hope Britney gets better soon and we are so proud of her for getting the help that she needs. Self-care is always a priority!
