Britney Spears Speaks Up for the First Time Since Entering Rehab and Fans Are Shocked!
Britney Spears is no stranger to mental health issues. Ever since the pop star’s 2007 mental breakdown, fans have been following her incredible journey towards rehabilitation and her epic comeback in the music industry. But more than ten years later, Spears’ troubles are far from over.
Fans have been wishing for nothing but for her to overcome whatever challenges and trials she faced, and return to the stage to reclaim her title as the queen of pop.
While many were ecstatic when the news of Britney Spears’ grand comeback emerged in 2008, fans couldn’t help but express their concern after the singer’s recent rehab stint brought on by her father’s health struggles.
In a heartbreaking announcement, Spears announced a long hiatus from her career as she checked herself and her father into a mental health facility to focus on their health and wellbeing.
While it was meant to be a reassuring post, some fans couldn’t help but speculate whether the pop star is on the verge of another meltdown again. Some even went as far as to say that the singer was being held in the rehabilitation center against her will.
Britney Spears finally broke her silence about the rumors circulating around her mental health and checked in with concerned fans to let them know that everything was going fine.
In early April, Britney Spears shocked the world when the 37-year-old singer revealed she enrolled in a mental health facility to help her deal with the emotional turmoil and stress she’s feeling about her father’s illness. The renowned actress says to her fans she needs some time off to focus on tending to her family’s needs.
Despite her clarification, some fans speculate Britney might be going through another mental health crisis, hence her eagerness to get therapy again. But before these baseless rumors could turn into something bigger, the pop star shut down the rumors surrounding her personal life by posting a video update on her Instagram account.
Last April 23, Britney posted a video on her Instagram account addressing the issue concerning about her mental health. While her family has been dealing with a lot of anxiety and stress, Britney says everything is still going well.
According to the actress, her father is responding well to therapy and medication, which means that he should be back on his feet in no time. The pop star also asked for everyone’s prayers and emplored them to understand what she and her family are currently going through. Spears promised her fans she’ll be back very soon after all of this is over.
While the pop singer is ecstatic to know her fans are just concerned for her wellbeing, she urges everyone to be wary of what they see on the Internet. She didn’t want her fans to go overboard and start creating a ruckus over fake news and misinformation.
This, after a group of protesters recently marched outside of West Hollywood’s City Hall demanding the facility to release her. It prompted Spears to post an update and reassures her fans she’s still okay.
