After saying "all is well," Britney Spears all set to check out of mental health facility
Soon after Britney Spears released a video saying "all is well" after the #FreeBritney movement started gaining traction, it was reported that the popstar is checking herself out of the mental health facility. Earlier this month she checked herself in the mental health facility, and many believed that she was being held against her will.
TMZ reported that the 'Hit Me Baby One More Time' singer is checking out as early as today, but still has ample of unresolved issues especially pertaining to her meds.
Sources told TMZ that Britney's mental state is much better than what it was when she checked in. During her time of check-in, the singer is said to have been distraught over her father Jamie Spears' illness, who was hospitalized in November 2018 after his colon spontaneously ruptured. At the same time, her medicines for her mental stability stopped working. She stopped taking the meds prescribed by the doctors as they failed to get the right combination of medicines for her. Over the last decade, the singer has received treatment for her mental health condition and has been on board with her treatment plan.
The right medication, however, still seems to be an issue, even after she would have checked out from the facility. TMZ's sources said that Britney checked into the facility to get her "head straight" and not the meds right. The songstress is said to leave the facility as early as today or if extended, will be out by the weekend, at the most.
Meanwhile, the #FreeBritney conspiracy has taken over the internet since April 16 and posits that the singer has been put in the facilityv against her wish. On Monday night, a crowd of fans gathered in protest outside West Hollywood City Hall and demanded Spears’ release; the event was live streamed on YouTube.
It all began with a fan podcast billed as a “special emergency episode” hosted by comedians Tess Barker and Barbara Gray. In the episode, the hosts claimed that they received “an anonymous tip from a credible source," who alleged that Spears had entered treatment against her will. On the leaked voicemail, the anonymous tipster claimed Jamie discovered his daughter, who was rehearsing for her Domination Vegas show, had allegedly not been taking her medications as prescribed. When the 'Piece of Me' singer reportedly refused to get on board with a new care regimen, the tipster claims Jamie “pulled the show” and instructed her team to blame it on his own ongoing health struggles. The podcast’s source also claimed that although an announcement was made in April, Spears has actually been in treatment since January.
Three months prior to entering treatment, Spears announced that she was taking an indefinite break from work to support her father and that she would not be returning to the Las Vegas strip with her show Domination as planned.
