HOLLYWOOD—Even Britney Spears, enjoyed her Easter holiday on Sunday, April 21. Britney, 37, was spotted out and about with her boyfriend Sam Asghari, 25, to enjoy Easter. It’s the second time, she’s been spotted in public since checking herself into a mental health facility on April 3. The couple who met on the set of her music video in 2016, were seen leaving the Montage Resort and Hotel in Beverly Hills. The other time was on April 11, when she stopped by a Los Angeles hair salon for a quick touch-up of her roots and extensions.
This is great news about Britney’s status, since just a few weeks earlier she checked into the facility because of tremendous stress over her father’s health battle. Britney went on an “indefinite work hiatus,” and put her Las Vegas show Britney: Domination, on hold until further notice. Family-more specifically, her father, Jamie Spears, was rushed to the hospital back in November due to a ruptured colon.
After spending 28 days recovering from a “life-threatening illness,” Spears was released and expected to make a full recovery. In January, Britney shared on her Instagram and Twitter explaining that she had to make the “difficult decision to put her full focus and energy on her family at this time. According to People magazine, he’s not doing very well. Britney is very close to her dad. Jamie has been the permanent conservator of Britney’s affairs and estate since 2008.
Britney has reassured fans over her wellbeing following internet speculation about her safety. It has been suggested online that she was being held at a mental health facility against her will, sparking the #FreeBritney campaign. In an Instagram video, Spears rejected the theories, saying “All is well” and that she would “be back very soon.”
She also added: “My family has been going through a lot of stress and anxiety recently, so I just needed time to deal.” The #FreeBritney allegations led to a fan demonstration calling for her “release” outside West Hollywood City Hall on Monday. In response, Spears urged fans not to “believe everything you read and hear,” adding that her family and those working for her had received death threats due to “rumors” that were “out of control.”
The singer, who has two sons ages 12 and 13, has been out of the media spotlight since announcing she was putting her planned Las Vegas residency – and the rest of her career – on hold for the sake of her father, Jamie, who suffered a life-threatening colon rupture last year. Earlier this month, she posted about the need for “me time,” in response to reports that she checked in to a mental health facility to help her process the trauma.”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.”
She later posted a workout video on Instagram. You can’t make this stuff up. Who is Andrew Wallet? According to published reports, the conservatorship has since included, overseeing Britney’s business, personal household stuff, legal matters, entertainment, music, family law issues, litigation.
As of March 4, Wallet resigned from the conservatorship, which is why most of the current ire, as with the chanting protestors, has been turned on Jamie specifically. According to court documents obtained by ET on April 24, a judge set the hearing for May 10, Spears will not need to be present. Britney’s dad became her sole conservator this year after attorney Andrew Wallet resigned. Britney also posted a video of herself working out with dance moves to Cardi B, Bad Bunny and J Balvin’s “I Like It.”
When Britney broke her silence, many celebrities took to social media to support her. Miley Cyrus, JWoww, Hayley Kiyoko, Michele Visage and model Tess Holiday all sent love to her. One of her backup dancers, Willie Gomez, added “Love you babe, sending all positive energy.”
