Britney Spears is currently receiving treatment for issues related to her anxiety, but sources close to the family stress she's not at a hospital.
Spears' emotional well-being took a turn for the worse after her father's colon ruptured last year. The 37-year-old star has been extremely upset over the ongoing medical issues with her dad after revealing he almost died. She even postponed her Las Vegas residency to deal with her father's illness.
However, sources close to the situation tell us the situation was actually much worse and Spears recently began to spiral out of control emotionally. We're told she recently checked into a facility, but our source stressed that it is not a hospital.
While she's been away, we're told Kevin Federline has taken "90% custody" of the former couple's two children, Sean and Jayden. Federline and Spears were recently locked in a battle over child support and she was ordered to pay "thousands more" in support, plus $100,000 for lawyer fees.
We're told Federline is now considering heading back to court to ask for more money from his baby mama to care for the kids while she is away.
Meanwhile, Spears broke her social media silence Wednesday before news broke of her treatment, telling fans, "We all need to take time for a little 'me time.'"
