Grammy winner Britney Spears is reportedly doing just fine after being released from a mental health facility.
Spears checked herself into the facility at the end of March to help cope with her father’s illness, according to an Entertainment Tonight report published Friday. The 37-year-old “Toxic” singer checked out of the facility April 26.
“When she was in the facility, Britney spoke nonstop about going home and seeing her boys, and that is the very first thing she did,” the source said. “She wants to spend every moment she can with them and can’t wait for their summer break to begin.” (RELATED: Britney Spears Insists She’s Fine Following Fan Freakout About Her Mental Health Struggles)
“While everyone warned her to take it slow and give herself time in the facility, Britney missed her routine and just being in her own bed,” the source added. “She has come such a long way. She’s had years of therapy and care, and this time, she knew the signs when she needed help. With the support of [boyfriend] Sam Asghari and her father [Jamie Spears] she made the decision to get help and she’s very proud of that.”

I wanted to say hi, because things that are being said have just gotten out of control!!! Wow!!! There’s rumors, death threats to my family and my team, and just so many things crazy things being said. I am trying to take a moment for myself, but everything that’s happening is just making it harder for me. Don’t believe everything you read and hear. These fake emails everywhere were crafted by Sam Lutfi years ago… I did not write them. He was pretending to be me and communicating with my team with a fake email address. My situation is unique, but I promise I’m doing what’s best at this moment ???????????? You may not know this about me, but I am strong, and stand up for what I want! Your love and dedication is amazing, but what I need right now is a little bit of privacy to deal with all the hard things that life is throwing my way. If you could do that, I would be forever grateful. Love you ❤️❤️❤️
Spears has made a lot of progress but wants to get back into a routine, the source said.
“With that said, she is also aware of how quickly things can turn, so she’s agreed to continue to take care of herself,” the source told ET. “She is so excited to get back to her regular workout routine and eating habits. She feels in a very good place again and has made so much progress.”
The mental health facility check-in came after Spears announced she was putting her Las Vegas residency on hold indefinitely.
