Variety reported that pop royalty Britney Spears has checked into a mental health facility after going through emotional distress following personal and family issues.
Reports say the singer became emotionally distressed due to her father's failing health. A source close to the star said to People: “Her dad being sick has taken a toll on her. He nearly died and actually had another surgery a few weeks ago. He’s not doing well. They’re so close and it has been a lot. There is nothing dramatic going on with her, she just realised she needs to make sure to take time to care for herself.”
Last January, Britney posted a family picture on Instagram. “A couple of months ago, my father was hospitalised and almost died,” she wrote. “We’re all so grateful that he came out of it alive, but he still has a long road ahead of him."
The "Baby One More Time" singer - who cancelled her new Las Vegas residency "Domination" to spend more time with her father - just posted an artcard which reads "Fall in love with taking care of yourself, mind, body, spirit." She also wrote in the caption: "We all need to take time for a little me time."
