Britney Spears has been away from the public eye for over two months now. The singer abruptly announced the postponement of her new Las Vegas residency Domination citing the debilitating health of her father. Today, after posting on social media for the first time since January, she was revealed to have checked into a mental health facility about one week ago.
Her father’s condition after two delicate surgeries involving his intestines and colon has not gotten any better. This has been devastating for Britney which lead not only to putting a hold to her Vegas show, but now having to receive professional help. She will be residing in this facility for the next 30 days.
This is not new to Britney, who suffered from an intense, infamous breakdown in the mid-2000’s. That was so hard for her mental health that it created never-ending problems for the pop star. Something like her father’s fragile health is seemingly triggering it all over it again.
Today a photo of a quote appeared on her Instagram page that read: ‘Fall in love with taking care of yourself. Mind. Body. Spirit.’
Fans were excited to see her posting again presuming that it had to do with an episode from the podcast It’s Britney, Bitch! that was published recently centering around her noticeable absence from social media or the paparazzi to be with her family. This was of course before news broke about her seeking help.
Hopefully she recovers soon. A healthy mind is the most important thing in the world, period.
