Britney Spears Checks Into Mental Health Facility


TMZ reports that Britney Spears has checked herself into a mental health facility this week because she’s said to be “distraught” over her dad's condition. She later shared on Instagram, "We all need to take time for a little "me time." :)"

As we previously told you, Britney postponed her new Las Vegas residency in order to care for her father, who was hospitalized last September and almost died. He recently underwent surgery to repair a ruptured colon, but according to TMZ, he’s been suffering complications and things are pretty serious. 

“Britney just needed to focus on herself,” a source tells 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.” The source adds, “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.”

According to the site, Britney's expected to stay for about a month. We wish Britney all the best and hope she (and her father) feel better!
