Britney Spears checks into mental health facility amid dad’s illness

Britney Spears has been admitted to a mental health facility.

The pop star is receiving treatment amid her struggle to cope with her dad’s declining health.

“Britney was having a hard time dealing with her dad’s health issues. Britney hasn’t been drinking or doing drugs or anything, she just has some very difficult emotional and mental health issues. She’s gone away to try to deal with her issues before they get worse,” a source close to the Spears family told Page Six Wednesday.

“She has recently been showing signs of being under a lot of strain,” our source added, before pointing out that dad Jamie is “the support in her life.”

Spears has been in the facility for about a week and is slated to stay for 30 days, TMZ reports.

She seemingly acknowledged her mental health in an Instagram post on Wednesday, writing, “We all need to take time for a little ‘me time.’ :)”

Jamie has been battling a colon condition since last November when his colon spontaneously ruptured. He underwent surgery at the time and was slated to go under the knife again in March.

He has been Britney’s conservator since 2008 after she underwent issues relating to a bipolar diagnosis and her 2007 shaved-head meltdown.

Spears, 37, postponed her Las Vegas residency and new music release to care for him.

Spears’ rep didn’t immediately get back to us.
