Earlier this month, pop star Britney Spears checked into a mental health and wellness facility in the hopes of dealing with her complicated feelings surrounding her father’s illness. Fans will recall that her father had suffered a ruptured colon last year and ever since then, has experienced a number of setbacks.
But on Thursday (April 25,) it was time for the “Toxic” hit maker to go home.

According to People magazine, Spears was picked up by her boyfriend Sam Asghari and quickly driven home in hopes of getting back to normal.
Earlier this week, Spears headed to her Instagram page to talk to her fans to ensure them that she was, in fact, getting better.
“Hi guys, just checking in with all of you who are concerned about me,” the pop star said in a video shared on Instagram Tuesday (April 23.) “All is well. My family has been going through a lot of stress and anxiety lately, so I just needed time to deal. Don’t worry I’ll be back very soon.”

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 ❤️❤️❤️
She also shared the fact that she had lost 5 pounds as of late due to stress.
Sending some prayers to Britney that she continues on the road to emotional recovery.
