Posted at 10:14 PM, Apr 03, 2019

Musician Britney Spears has reportedly checked into an “all-encompassing wellness treatment" after previously announcing that she was taking a break from performing.

People Magazine reported on Wednesday that Spears checked into the facility as she has been taking care of her ailing father. According to People, Spears' father Jamie Spears, 66, underwent a second colon surgery.

In January, Britney Spears tweeted that her father had a brush with death.

"It's important to always put your family first… and that’s the decision I had to make," Spears said when announcing her break from entertainment. "A couple of months ago, my father was hospitalized and almost died. We’re all so grateful that he came out of it alive, but he still has a long road ahead of him."

On Wednesday, Spears posted on her Instagram account a quote reading, "Fall in love with taking care of yourself, mind, body, spirit."

A source told People Magazine, "“Her dad being sick has taken a toll on her... He nearly died and actually had another surgery a few weeks ago. He’s not doing well. They’re so close and it has been a lot. There is nothing dramatic going on with her — she just realized she needs to make sure to take time to care for herself.”
