Britney Spears gets day pass from mental health facility for Easter Sunday, spends it with boyfriend Sam Asghari
Distraught over her father's serious illness, the singer had admitted herself to the mental health facility a few weeks ago
A few weeks ago, distraught over her father's serious illness, which reportedly isn't going to get better, Britney Spears admitted herself to a mental health facility.
But she got a day pass on Easter Sunday and reportedly spent the day with her boyfriend Sam Asghari. There was no sign of her children on this Sunday outing.
Britney joined the facility voluntarily and is supposed to stay there for a month.
Her father Jamie Spears has had two surgeries in an attempt to correct major issues with his intestines and colon. His second surgery is what caused complications. Jamie had practically saved Britney's life in 2007 when he said he was afraid he would wake up one day to a call from a coroner. Following which, since 2008, Britney has been under a conservatorship for issues related to her mental health.
But even after fans saw Britney for the first time after entering treatment, they had some views to share about her condition.

Break free from all your lies.

While others had already started stringing conspiracy theories.
If Jamie is struggling with his health, why was he seen at a wedding? And why was Britney spotted at some office looking ‘medicated’ if she’s ok and happy? WHY did ‘she’ post that Instagram post a couple weeks ago, and why did Sam post that what Britney is doing is inspiring? 1/?— #FREEBRITNEY (@benshutupdamn) April 18, 2019
Britney's struggle with mental illnesses goes back a long time. She was publicly struggling with her mental health in 2007 when the pop star infamously shaved off her head and attacked a paparazzi's car with an umbrella. She fled the scene of a car accident and was charged with two counts of hit and run - eventually hospitalized under a 5150 involuntary psychiatric hold in early 2008.
But back in 2007, this was treated with neither empathy nor sensitivity. In fact, the entire subject was treated like a star's sensational "breakdown" or "meltdown". It was at this time that she became candid about her mental health - the singer wrote a letter on her website addressed to her fans admitting that she was "lost".
Either way, we know that the singer-songwriter has definitely seen better days, and here's to seeing more!
