TMZ are reporting that Britney Spears has been checked into a mental health facility.
Sources close to the singer are saying that she has been distraught over her father’s serious illness and health issues.
Jamie Spears has been suffering from health problems since late last year after his colon spontaneously ruptured. He has since had two surgeries to correct major issues with his intestines and colon.
It’s believed that he is suffering from complications following the most recent surgery.
Britney recently put her Las Vegas residency on hold to take care of her father and it’s reported that she’s been having a tough time dealing with it.

I don’t even know where to start with this, because this is so tough for me to say. I will not be performing my new show Domination. I’ve been looking forward to this show and seeing all of you this year, so doing this breaks my heart. However, it’s important to always put your family first… and that’s the decision I had to make. A couple of months ago, my father was hospitalized 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. I hope you all can understand. More information on ticket refunds is available on britneyspears.com. I appreciate your prayers and support for my family during this time. Thank you, and love you all… always.
Sources have told TMZ that Britney checked herself into a facility about a week ago and that she will remain there for 30 days.
Back in November, Britney revealed that he father had “almost died” while announcing that her residency, Britney: Domination, would be suspended.
“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.”
Sending all our love to Britney during this time. We hope she’s doing okay!
