Pop singer Britney Spears has checked into a psychiatric facility after suffering from emotional distress.
Spears was admitted over a week ago, as first reported by TMZ, and is expected to remain in the treatment center for about a month.
Spears has been troubled over the past year by her father’s health crisis. Jamie Spears recently underwent a second surgery to fix a ruptured colon.
Back in November the pop star put her Las Vegas residency on hold to care for her dad. She wrote on Instagram: “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.”
