Britney Spears checked into a mental health facility, according to Variety. The 37-year-old singer took to Instagram on Wednesday to share a quote about self care. After the quote was published, it was soon reported that Spears had checked into the mental facility a week ago.
According to People, Britney “just needed to focus on herself” and “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,” said a source to the outlet. “There is nothing dramatic going on with her — she just realized she needs to make sure to take time to care for herself.”
