Britney Spears has been admitted to a mental health facility.
No, she didn’t go crazy and shave her head again.
Back in January, the pop star put her Las Vegas show on hold so she could be with her dad as he recovered from some serious health issues.
Britney’s stress over her dad has increased to the point that she checked herself into a mental health facility about a week ago and plans to stay there for 30 days.
Sources say that after Jamie Spears’ colon spontaneously ruptured last year, he’s had two surgeries, but continues to suffer from complications, especially as of late.
Britney hasn't said anything publicly about being in a mental health facility, but last night, she did post a quote on Instagram about self-care that she captioned,"We all need to take time for a little 'me time.'"
This came as no surprise to Brit’s family and friends, who say she plunged into a deep depression after her dad’s health issues started getting really bad.
A friend described her like this: “It’s almost like there are two Britneys – the one who is able to go out on stage and perform to thousands of fans in Vegas – and the girl who is really quite normal with her family.”
So again, to reiterate, this is not a case of Britney abusing drugs, prescription meds or alcohol. This is her simply being stressed, overwhelmed, and dealing with some stuff emotionally.
