Pop icon Britney Spears has recently checked into a mental health facility. This development comes as Spears has been having a hard time coping with her father’s health. She’s been distraught over her dad’s health not getting any better. Her father, Jamie Spears, has been dealing with a colon condition since November when his colon ruptured. He had a surgery in November and another in March. According to reports, things have not gotten better and it’s been really to Britney.
Spears was gearing up for another run of her Las Vegas residency. However when her father’s condition took a turn for the worse, she decided to take an indefinite break and postponed the show since January.
In an Instagram post, Spears commented on needing some “me time’ amid the news of mental health check in.

Sources close to Britney state that Britney just needs some time to fouc on herself so she can be there for her dad.
“Her dad being sick has taken a toll on her,” the source continues. “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 realized she needs to make sure to take time to care for herself.”
Good for her.
