Britney Spears has reportedly checked herself into a mental health facility amid her father Jamie’s ongoing illness.

She has checked into a“wellness center that prioritizes physical, mental and spiritual well-being and Britney will be there for a few weeks,” an insider has reported to Us Weekly.

Amid the reports the star also took to her social media on Wednesday, April 3 to share a quote. “Fall in love with taking care of yourself, mind, body, spirit” on Instagram on Wednesday, along with the caption: “We all need to take time for a little ‘me time.’ :)”

A Spears family told PEOPLE that the star is okay, but needs time to care for herself after caring for her father. “Her dad being sick has taken a toll on her,” the source said. “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.”
