Britney Spears Reportedly Admitted to Mental Health Facility Amid Father’s Illness
Britney Spears has reportedly checked into a mental health facility.
TMZ reports the pop icon has been "distraught over her dad's illness ... something we're told is quite serious and not getting better."
The performer's father, Jamie Spears, reportedly underwent two surgeries to "correct major issues with his intestines and colon," but unfortunately has been "suffering complications" since the second surgery.
Back in January, Spears announced she would put her 2019 Vegas residency plans on hold to care for her father, who has served as one of her conservators since 2008 (and sole conservator since early 2019). Sources tell the tabloid that the singer checked herself into a facility last week, and that she plans to remain there for 30 days receiving treatment.
The news that Spears is reportedly receiving mental health treatment comes just hours after she made a fleeting return to Instagram after a near three-month hiatus to share a message about taking "a little 'me time.'"
