Britney Spears' Family Members Speak Out After She Checks Herself Into Rehab Due To Her Father Jamie's Health Issues
Several family members have stepped out to show love and support to Britney Spears who recently announced that she has decided to check herself into a wellness facility.
Via social media, the pop music legend revealed that she was taking some time off to focus on her mental health.
Britney took the decision after her father Jamie Spears' faced a “life-threatening” colon rupture.
Kevin Federline, Britney's ex-husband and the father of her two children -- 13-year-old Sean Preston and Jayden James. 12 -- issued a statement praising the diva's decision.
Kevin said via his attorney: “Kevin commends Britney for recognizing that she needs to take a step back and that she is taking the reasonable steps to deal with her situation in a responsible way.”
The diva's boyfriend, Sam Asghari, took to Instagram to say the following: “It isn’t weakness. It’s a sign of absolute strength; people should only be inspired by this; at least I am.”
Jamie Lynn Spears also came out in a show of support to her big sister with a sweet picture. The photo showed Jamie Lynn as a little girl getting off a school bus with her older sister.
She explained via the caption: “Yup, she rode the bus home with me after my first day of school, cus she’s the fn best #WCW [Woman Crush Wednesday].”
The 37-year-old entertainer said earlier this year when she revealed that she would be taking an indefinite break and putting her "Britney: Domination" show in Las Vegas on pause to be with her father: "I don’t even know where to start with this, because this is so tough for me to say. I will not be performing my new show Domination. I’ve been looking forward to this show and seeing all of you this year, so doing this breaks my heart. However, it’s important to always put your family first… and that’s the decision I had to make. A couple of months ago, my father was hospitalized and almost died. We’re all so grateful that he came out of it alive, but he still has a long road ahead of him. I had to make the difficult decision to put my full focus and energy on my family at this time. I hope you all can understand. More information on ticket refunds is available on britneyspears.com. I appreciate your prayers and support for my family during this time. Thank you, and love you all… always."
Britney is handling things the best way she can.
