[Blind Gossip] There is some misdirection going in the case of this performer’s health.
They are trying to say that she is upset over her father. That’s not the real story. The truth is that she totally stopped taking her meds and was babbling and acting crazy like she did years ago.
That is why she is currently out of sight. They are getting her back on her medications.
Let’s hope our girl stays on them and can experience the sunshine soon!

Your friends at Blind Gossip told you a week ago that the claim that Britney Spears had checked into a mental health facility because she was upset over her dad’s illness was a misdirection.
We also told you that the real reason she checked in because she was having a problem with her medications.
Both of those facts are now being confirmed by other sources.
Yes, her team initially lied/misdirected the public about what was going on.
This is actually quite understandable. Spears suffers from a mental health condition, but, because she is a celebrity, it makes it hard to keep her treatment private.
If they had said, “Britney Spears is having a mental breakdown again!”, the media and fans would have gone crazy!
Her team needed to make sure that media and the fans backed off and let her heal. That’s why they came up with the story about how she was being treated for stress over her father’s illness. A plausible excuse that kept everyone at bay.
Back to her current health issue.
Basically, the efficacy of the medications Britney Spears was on had declined, and her symptoms had returned. Before the doctors could put her on a new regime, she had to be weaned off her old meds, so there was a time period where she was on no medication at all. To keep her safe, this all needed to be closely monitored. That’s why she was at the health facility.
Despite the claims that Britney was being held against her will (#FreeBritney!), she had actually checked herself into the facility. She left for one day to spend some time with her boyfriend and family, but then went right back in.
She looks shaky, but that’s to be expected. The weaning off of the old meds and the trialing of new meds takes time. They have to find the right meds, the right combinations, and the right dosages.
She’s doing better now, but she will be in the facility a while longer.
All of you conspiracy theorists can stand down!
Meds Triggered Mental Health Crisis
Britney Spears is at the tail end of her 30-day stay at a mental health facility … and we’ve learned more about how she landed there in the first place.
As we reported, Britney has had a rough time dealing with her dad’s recent illness. Jamie and Britney are super close — he’s been her conservator for nearly a dozen years — and his health battles have taken a big toll on her.
We’re told at the same time, Britney’s doctors were adjusting her meds which had lost their efficacy. Britney’s mental health issues were stabilized with a cocktail of medicines that were designed specifically her. Over time, those meds were increasingly ineffective and doctors needed to create a new cocktail.
We’re told there were problems. First, they had to wean Britney off the existing meds. This cannot be done quickly and there’s a risk of suicide if it’s not done right — it’s that serious.
As doctors weaned her off the meds, they created a new cocktail, but it’s all trial and error, and there were errors that made Britney unstable and ultimately unwilling to cooperate with doctors.
She was admitted to the mental health facility and we’re told doctors think they’ve now found the right mixture of drugs.
Britney got a day pass Sunday to spend time with her boyfriend, Sam Asghari, in Bev Hills. She went back to the facility the same day.
One other thing … there have been reports the conservatorship has forced meds on Britney against her will. Not true. The conservatorship Britney is under does not permit the conservator to force drugs on the person for whom the conservatorship was created.
On that note, there have also been reports Jamie Spears forced Britney into the mental health facility. The type of conservatorship Britney has — through the probate court — does not allow a conservator to force someone into a mental health facility.
What’s more, we’re told Jamie is adamant — he did not want his daughter to go to the facility because he thought it would leak out to the media and he felt there were better ways of solving her problems. We’re told Britney is the one who said she wanted to go.
Get well, Britney!
Congratulations to Boyjack4 for being first with the correct response!
Why is no one calling out HER MOM for that ambiguous social media post that actually drove the fan frenzy? If she’d not posted that, most conspiracy-driven fans wouldn’t have had anything to feed their delusions.
Brit Brit – Get well soon!
Jason L says
there’s something I don’t get. Why did she stop the meds? She has to know what it means. Was she suffering nasty side effects?
Britney. Poor girl.
After reading the related blind, I’m wondering if this is maybe Amanda Bynes? My Initial guess was Britney, but I think I need to change it.
I hope both Britney and Amanda find peace health and happiness.
But for this one, I’m going with Amanda.
Everytime is my favorite song of hers. Hauntingly beautiful. Get better Brit. Mental health comes first above all else. If you aren’t well you can’t care for your family and yourself.
So much love for Britney. Get well soon xx
As someone who is currently secretly off my meds, I get it. I wonder how long I’ll last before being stuck in bed crying my eyes out. I wish her the best.
Britney Spears. I understand because I suffer with the same issues. In our family, mental health issues are genetic, & many family members have died from alcoholism & drug overdoses due to self-medication trying to quiet the demons. Those who have never dealt with mental health issues might not understand but the problem is very difficult. Lucky for me, I have never gotten into drugs or alcohol, but I take my meds and go to my therapists as instructed. Saying prayers for Britney! <3
I listened to that podcast where they said she was being held against her will. I don’t know who or what to believe, but I hope she gets better soon and HER best interests are being considered top priority.
And I hope they’re able to #FreeBritney soon, but not at the expense of her mental and physical wellbeing.
This is why folks who claim her daddy has been too controlling of her drive me batty. She NEEDS the constant, steady hand on all aspects of her life, unfortunately. Good luck to her; I hope she gets *well” (as well as she can) soon.
Poor thing , mental illness is no joke and she has been through so much . Hope she gets better soon !
My favorite work is probably the Blackout or circus album , underrated !
It’s Britney! Get well soon, Brit Brit.
This is not the whole story.
Her leaving her show due to her father’s illness seemed to come out of nowhere and not even the show’s creative team knew.
I just generally love Britney (although Baby One More Time and Oops I Did it Again will always have a special place in my heart).
Brittney, of course.
tinker belle says
britney spears. back in the paris hilton frienship days thought that her behavior was due to alcoholand drugs. now it seems that there is more. mental issues are no joke. they make you their prisoner, not free to live life and hopeless of ever getting better as though you are always chained. i really wish the best for britney xx
Poor Britney 🙁
Britney Spears – hope it works out for her.
Poor Britney… mental illness is horrible. So many stop their meds only.to have to start over again. Hope that they get her back on her meds and dosages soon.
I’ve always thought she was pretty sexy in her ‘Toxic’ video.
Performer: Britney Spears
I just feel bad for her
Oh BritBrit, take your meds & get better. Take a much deserved break & enjoy your family.
Poor cray cray Britney.
I hope for the best for her. She seems like a real sweetheart, and she is so lost right now. Get better Brit, and take a good amount of time off for you and your family.
Dang, Brit Brit! Get right, hon.
Awww brit brit. We love you girl…get well.
I hope she sues his butt! This man has been so disrespectful to this woman. Love or hate her, no one deserves this.
Toxic is very slick.
Optional: Her work trying to be a good mom
Poor Britney ……
I love her. She didn’t deserve this.
Poor woman, she always seems to be a performing robot medicated up to the eyeballs… Maybe she was sick of always being told what to do. The only photos I’ve seen of her in the last few years when she looks happy are when she’s with her boys. She should just stop working for a while and spend some time with her kids. She doesn’t need the money or the stress.
Poor girl. I love all her work- great to get up and dance!
This item is definitely regarding Britney Spears. I hope she’s getting the help she needs. I don’t think the public truly knows the extent of her troubles, past and present. She’s fortunate to have a supportive family who stands their ground regarding her mental health.
I’ve always been partial to “Toxic”.
Poor Britney! I hope she gets better. It was heartbreaking watching her breakdown before they got her on good meds to keep her in check.
Britney, and the clue is the umbrella. She always seemed really nice, but was really exploited and sexualized when she was barely 18. Hope she gets well soon.
My favorite song of her is toxic
The truth is Britney has serious problems that need to be addressed. Her father deserved every penny he was paid – because he kept her in line all those years. Doubt there is anyone else around her that can do the same – if there was, we would have known by now.
Difficult when family don’t really genuinely care for each other – sad.
Brit. With no one to watch her as he fell ill, she started to spiaal
Get well soon, Brit-brit!!
Her Blackout album was underrated
Poor Britney hope she gets well soon.
Oh, Brit-Brit, get back in balance soon.
Hope Daddy Jamie is recovering too.
Ms. Spears. I think she’s schizophrenic, not bipolar as put out there. But who knows.
She could be both, unfortunately. :-/
I think she is schizophrenic too. I feel really bad for her and it can be disastrous without the meds. Hopefully she’s back on them and adjusting successfully. And she’s not being held against her will. If she wants to petition the court to end the conservatorship, she can. Whether it’s successful or not is another matter.
Performer: Awww, Britney… 🙁
[Optional] Your favorite work of hers? The Blackout album
What’s wrong with Brit Brit’s father?
Britney Spears 🙁
I can’t even remember the last time I listened to her.

Hope she’s ok whatever is going on
It’s Britney, bitch!
I wish her the best.
Now Britney’s mom’s message makes sense…. I think everyone with any type of chronic illness has faced the temptation to stop taking their meds at some point. It’s so easy to start believing you don’t need them anymore, that your body has healed itself, when you’ve been feeling good a long time. But it’s a lie you tell yourself. Get well, girl. Stick with it and hang in there.
I know, and my heart goes out to the family. I had a friend who suffer from the disorder. She would go off her meds ever do often and wound up in Psychiatric hospitals. Than she got a new boyfriend who didn’t understand anything about the disease. He convinced her she didn’t need it,and she went off her meds and wound up committing suicide.
My daughter suffer from the disorder too. So it is not close to home whenever I read stories like this.
Britney. I worry about her after her father is gone (which hopefully won’t be for a long time).
Oh Britney, good for you for getting help! I love you and am praying for you!
I think she’s being held against her will. She’s just a cash cow – if her family, including her ailing father, really cared about her they wouldn’t keep making her work. It’s screwed up and the people around her are to blame.
Brittney Spears. She has bi polar disorder. I’m very glad she’s getting the help she needs. I feel for her.
The classics! Grew up with Baby One More Time
It’s Brittney baby!!!
I am rooting for you!
Oh, dear! Get well, Britney! You need those meds, as do many people. Take care of yourself.
‘Oops!…I Did It Again!’ I’m a little too old for the Britney craze. However, I remember sitting poolside in Vegas when this song was playing and thinking that Britney had become such a big star.
I always have that memory whenever I hear the song.
The umbrella is a clue. 🙁
It’s Britney Spears being held captive by her dad & boyfriend. Even if she gets back on her meds, I don’t see this ending well … like Anna Nicole Smith. ‘Memba HER??
Never been a serious fan of Brit Brit, but her first two albums were fun.
Sadly I think this is Amanda Bynes
Aw, Britney 🙁
I’ve always liked Womanizer, and I was in like middle school when Circus came out and remember how I had no idea what “If U Seek Amy” was really about
Britney Spears. Poor girl.
Poor Britney Spears, very sad
