Good news for all of you Britney Spears fans – she has finally checked out of her treatment facility.

 

Back in January, Britney’s father fell extremely ill. Britney made the decision to take an indefinite break and also postponed her brand new Las Vegas residency, Domination.  At the time, Britney’s main focus was to concentrate on her father and her family.  A source revealed, “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. They’re so close and it has been a lot. There is nothing dramatic going on with her — she just realized she needs to make sure to take time to care for herself.”  Due to the amount of stress Britney and her family were under, she made her own decision and checked herself into a facility for ‘encompassing wellness treatment.’  A source close to Britney says, “She recognized she needed to focus on her own health and sought treatment.  No one forced her to go.”

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.

Also, according to PEOPLE, “The medicine Spears was previously taking had lost some efficacy over time.  As doctors weaned her off the old medicine cocktail and created a new, tweaked regimen, the adjustment period was challenging.”  Following her father’s illness and announcing her break from music, Britney tweeted, “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.  We have a very special relationship and I want to be with my family at this time just like they have always been there for me.”  

 

 

Following the multiple rumours that surrounded Britney and her decision to enter a treatment facility, Britney not only wrote a message to her fans but, she also uploaded a video on Instagram, letting her fans know that she is okay, “I wanted to say hi, because things that are being said have just gotten out of control!!! Wow!!! There’s rumours, death threats to my family and my team, and just so many things crazy things being said. I am trying to take a moment for myself, but everything that’s happening is just making it harder for me. Don’t believe everything you read and hear. These fake emails everywhere were crafted by Sam Lutfi years ago… I did not write them. He was pretending to be me and communicating with my team with a fake email address. My situation is unique, but I promise I’m doing what’s best at this moment.  You may not know this about me, but I am strong, and stand up for what I want! Your love and dedication is amazing, but what I need right now is a little bit of privacy to deal with all the hard things that life is throwing my way. If you could do that, I would be forever grateful. Love you.”
