Britney Spears checks into mental health facility

Britney Spears has checked into a mental health facility after being “distraught” over her dad Jamie’s health woes, according to reports.

The singer is said to be up in arms over her father’s illness which is allegedly “not getting any better.”

Readers know Jamie recently underwent a second surgery following his colon rupture and hospitalization.

In November 2017, the 66-year-old father to Britney, 37, Jamie Lynn, 27, and Bryan Spears, 41, fell “seriously ill” after his colon “spontaneously ruptured,” leaving him hospitalized for several months.

And although a press release issued by the Spears camp said that Jamie is “expected to make a full recovery” after “almost dying,” a source close to the pop princess told Radar Jamie’s health is not “well at all” just yet.

“He is having a lot of health complications that are stemming from his initial ruptured colon,” the insider said.

“She is back and forth to Louisiana, but she is not doing great by any means,” the insider said. “You can see it on her face.”

Her father’s medical issues have “really taken a toll on her.”

“She is not sleeping well and is really leaning on Sam right now as a source of support,” the source said. “Thankfully, he is there for her as much as he can be.”

On Jan. 5, a spokesperson for Britney said that she has decided to cancel her entire upcoming “Britney: Domination” residency in Las Vegas to care for her ailing dad.

Reports now say Britney checked herself into the facility about a week ago where she will live for 30 days.
