Britney Spears Addresses Her Mental Health

Britney Spears' fans have understandably been concerned since she decided to check herself into a mental health facility earlier this month for a 30-day stay after her father, who she’s very close to, fell seriously ill.

And the rumor mill regarding her health has since gone into full swing.

So Britney decided to return to Instagram with a quick video addressing the issue directly. In the actual clip, she says:

"All is well. My family has been going through a lot of stress lately so I just needed time to deal, but don’t worry I’ll be back very soon."

In the video’s caption she goes on to ask for patience as the rumors about her are only making the process more challenging, writing in part:

"Things that are being said have just gotten out of control…I am trying to take a moment for myself, but everything that’s happening is making it harder for me…My situation is unique, but I promise I’m doing what’s best for me at this moment…What I need right now is a little bit of privacy to deal with all the hard things that life is throwing my way."

We obviously wish Britney well. You can read Britney’s full post below:
