Britney Spears’ mental health has made headlines once again. The singer checked herself into a psychiatric facility to deal with emotional issues while coping with her father Jamie Spears’s failing health.
Back in January, the pop sensation announced she was pulling out of her new series of concerts in Las Vegas residency to be with her family after her father came close to death after suffering a ruptured colon las year. “We’re so grateful that he came out of it alive but he still has a long road ahead of him,” Britney said at the time.
Without going into specifics, the Stronger hitmaker posted a message to her Instagram account saying: “We all need to take time for a little ‘me time.’” She also shared a quote reading “Fall in love with taking care of yourself, mind, body, spirit.”
Multiple outlets inform Spears voluntarily checked herself into a mental health facility last week and is planning to undergo a 30-day stay. According to reports, Jamie Spears was not doing well after a second surgery three weeks ago, and that the singer was finding his prolonged illness hard to deal with.”
