Fans rally behind Britney Spears as she checks herself into a mental health facility

Britney Spears fans have rallied about her after reports emerge that she checked herself into a mental health facility.

According to TMZ, the pop star has admitted herself to the mental health facility to have some "me time."

Spears posted an image on Instagram with the text:

Fall in love with taking care of yourself. Mind. Body. Spirit

In the caption, she wrote that everyone needs “a little ‘me time’,” followed by a smiley emoji.

It has been said that her father's illness has continued to take a toll on the pop star.

66-year-old Jamie Spears is struggling with issues in his internal organs and last year suffered a life-threatening colon rupture.

On January 4, the singer put her Las Vegas residency on hold to focus on family.

"A couple of months ago, my father was hospitalized and almost died," she said in a statement on Instagram.

"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."

Fans of the 37-year-old have been sending messages of support to the singer on social media.
