For a long time it seemed as if Britney SpearsDark days were finally behind her. After a much-publicized slump in 2007 and 2008, the Princess of Pop came out on top, winning one award after another, winning a four-year Las Vegas residency that raised nearly $ 138 million.
In February 2019, Spears would return to the Las Vegas Strip for Piece of mefollow up, Domination. However, she announced a month before the scheduled start date that she would work indefinitely to care for her sick father, Jamie Spears, who underwent life-threatening surgery after his colon had ruptured the previous fall spontaneously.
Britney then went dark on social media and only posted in mid-January to mark the 20th anniversary of her debut album, … Baby again. She only came back in April 2019, when she posted on Instagram that she was taking ‘a little’ time for myself. Within minutes, news broke that Britney had quietly checked into a mental health facility in California for a 30-day stay in late March. A source said Us weekly exclusive that the Grammy winner decided to seek help after the stress of her father’s admission and the complex process of changing the drugs she had taken for a secret mental illness.
The news rocked the Britney army, which began to speculate on the well-being of the pop star, picking up the # FreeBritney movement launched by the cohosts of a podcast dedicated to Britney’s Instagram. Her sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, was quick to shut down unfounded rumors of the “Toxic” singer and wrote on Instagram: “I’ve been here for someone else for a long time and I’ll be here for a long time afterwards. I love my sister with everything I have So anyone or anything that speaks to the contrary can GTFOH with any comments about what you don’t understand. Don’t come for me or for those I love again. “Britney spoke out later that day and assured fans in a video message that” everything good is’.
The Intersection actress has not been able to make major personal or financial decisions in her life without her father’s approval since a court-approved curatorship was instituted in February 2008 following her meltdown and divorce from Kevin Federline, with whom she shares sons Preston and Jayden. As a result, co-curators Jamie and lawyer Andrew Wallett have been credited with saving Britney’s life. Wallett abruptly resigned in March 2019, leaving Jamie the sole curator until he temporarily quit in September after an alleged feud with Preston. (Jamie was later cleared of misconduct.)
