Britney Spears has checked into a mental health facility after suffering from emotional distress.
The pop star is expected to be in treatment for a month after being admitted more than a week ago, ‘Variety’ has confirmed.
It’s believed that Spears, who announced a hiatus from music in January, has been concerned by her father’s health crisis over the past year.
The singer halted her Las Vegas residency to look after her parent, writing on Instagram: “A couple of months ago, my father was hospitalised 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.”
A source told ‘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.”
