Britney Spears Checks Into Mental Health Facility
Pop star Britney Spears has checked into a mental health facility as she struggles to deal with her father's health battles.
Spears has cancelled her upcoming 'Domination' residency show in Las Vegas, offering refunds to all of her fans who have already bought tickets.
Britney's father, Jamie, has been been suffering complications following recent surgeries to correct issues with his intestines and colon. Britney has been under a conservatorship overseen by her father since 2008 which sees him taking care of her finances, career and medical care following a series of mental health issues for the star.
It's believed Spears checked herself into a mental health facility a week ago for 30 days as she's having a hard time dealing with her father's illness.
Posting a throwback photo with her parents on Instagram, Britney explained that she needed some "me time" away from the spotlight to concentrate on what truly in matters in life.
She said: "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 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."
She continued: "I had to make the difficult decision to put my full focus and energy on my family at this time. I hope you can all understand.
"I appreciate your prayers and support for my family during this time. Thank you, and love you all...always."
