Britney Spears Shuts It Down for New Kenzo Campaign

Spears stepped away from her Las Vegas residency in late 2018 to care for her ailing father, who continues to endure health complications.

Britney Spears is getting very public support from some of those closest to her after TMZ reported that the singer has checked herself into a mental health facility.

The singer had already put her Las Vegas residency on hold to care for her ailing father, whose colon abruptly ruptured late last year. Now, TMZ reports that despite two surgeries to attempt to correct his system, Jamie Spears continues to suffer complications.

According to TMZ's sources, Spears checked into the facility a week ago as she is struggling with her father's ongoing illness and intends to spend 30 days there.

Jamie Lynn Spears dropped a sweet throwback message to her Instagram page Wednesday evening, clearly thinking about her big sister and how much Britney has always been there for her. In the adorable picture, Britney can be seen getting off of a school bus with a very young Jamie Lynn.

"Yup, she rode the bus home with me after my first day of school, cuz she’s the fn best," Jamie-Lynn captioned the image.

Britney's boyfriend, Sam Asghari, paid tribute to his love by resharing her post with a new caption championing her "absolute strength" and saying how much she is inspiring him by putting her mental health needs first.

As news of the story broke, Spears took to Instagram to share her initial message of inspiration, she captioned, "We all need to take time for a little 'me time.'" It was her first post in nearly three months.

And this was just the tip of the iceberg for Britney, as her fans lit up social media in support of her taking all the time she needs. Below is just a taste of the positivity across Twitter as news of Britney's mental health struggle went public.
