‘Me Time’: Britney Spears just checked herself into a Mental Health Facility

Britney Spears has decided to take some time for herself after months of caring for her father in light of his health issues involving a ruptured colon have taken a toll on her emotionally. She took to Instagram to post a photo—her first in three months—which said “Fall in love with taking care of yourself, mind, body, spirit” and wrote this on the caption: “We all need to take time for a little “me time.” :)”

According to multiple reports, Britney checked herself into a mental health facility about a week prior to her Instagram post and will be staying there for 30 days.

A source close to the Spears family tells celebrity news website Page Six, “Britney was having a hard time dealing with her dad’s health issues. Britney hasn’t been drinking or doing drugs or anything, she just has some very difficult emotional and mental health issues. She’s gone away to try to deal with her issues before they get worse.”

At the end of 2018, Britney had to put her Las Vegas show Domination on hold while she cared for her father. On January this year, she announced that the show wasn’t going to happen.

“It’s important to always put your family first… and that’s the decision I had to make,” she wrote on an Instagram post. “A couple of months ago, my father was hospitalized and almost died. We’re all so grateful that he came out of it alive, but he still has a long road ahead of him. I had to make the difficult decision to put my full focus and energy on my family at this time.”

I don’t even know where to start with this, because this is so tough for me to say. I will not be performing my new show Domination. I’ve been looking forward to this show and seeing all of you this year, so doing this breaks my heart. However, it’s important to always put your family first… and that’s the decision I had to make. A couple of months ago, my father was hospitalized and almost died. We’re all so grateful that he came out of it alive, but he still has a long road ahead of him. I had to make the difficult decision to put my full focus and energy on my family at this time. I hope you all can understand. More information on ticket refunds is available on britneyspears.com. I appreciate your prayers and support for my family during this time. Thank you, and love you all… always.
