Britney Spears' mom, Lynne Spears, has broken her silence after a source told ET on Wednesday that Spears has decided to take time to care for herself at a health facility.
A source close to the Spears family told ET that the 37-year-old singer is currently in a health facility after being under tremendous stress over her father, Jamie Spears', current health crisis. On Thursday, Lynne took to Instagram to share an inspirational message.
"Keep going no matter how bad things are right now, no matter how stuck you feel, no matter how many days you've spent crying, no matter how many days you've spent wishing things were different, no matter how hopeless and depressed you feel -- I promise you won't feel this way forever," the message reads. "Keep going."
Spears has also received public support from her younger sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, and her boyfriend, model Sam Asghari. While Jamie Lynn shared an adorable throwback photo of Spears riding the school bus with her on her first day of school and named her as her "Woman Crush Wednesday," Asghari reposted Spears' Instagram message that read, "Fall in love with taking care of yourself. Mind. Body. Spirit."
Asghari wrote, "It isn’t weakness, It’s a sign of absolute strength, people should only be inspired by this, at least I am ♥️ #stronger."
A separate source told ET on Wednesday that Spears' relationship with Asghari has been affected by her dealing with a rough 2019. In January, Spears announced that she would be taking an indefinite work hiatus, postponing her album and putting her new Britney: Domination show at Park Theater at the Park MGM resort in Las Vegas on hold until further notice, following her father suffering a life-threatening illness. Late last year, Jamie was rushed to the hospital when his colon ruptured. According to a release, he spent 28 days in the hospital, and the family credited the doctors and nurses for saving his life.
"She hasn't felt emotionally available for the relationship," the source said of her and Asghari. "She has been white-knuckling this time just trying to hold it together."
The source also said that it was Spears herself who made the decision to seek treatment at a facility.
"She is the one who finally decided she needed help and made the decision to manage her own emotions," the source said. "She finally realized it was affecting her everyday life and even her relationships. She wants to feel better and more relaxed and taking time to focus on herself truly is her only option. It has been a rough year. While those closest to her have encouraged her to get help, she finally decided on her own it was time."
"She seems to be on a constant roller coaster and can't get off," the source added. "She is finally getting the help she needs."
