Britney Spears addresses mental health issues in video, tells fans she will 'be back soon'
Britney Spears had checked into a mental health facility in March, following a bout of emotional distress.
Singer-songwriter Britney Spears on 23 April addressed her fans in a video and said that "all is well." Her fans had demanded that she be released from a mental treatment facility that she joined in March.
“Hi guys, just checking in with all of you that are concerned about me. All is well, my family has been going through a lot of stress and anxiety, so I just needed time to deal, but don’t worry, I’ll be back very soon," said Spears.
In the caption, she thanked her fans for their support and also indirectly addressed those who had assumed that she was being held against her will at the mental health facility. A group of agitating members had gathered outside West Hollywood City Hall on 22 April, holding up placards which said, "Free Britney" and "Truth Will Set Her Free."

I wanted to say hi, because things that are being said have just gotten out of control!!! Wow!!! There’s rumors, death threats to my family and my team, and just so many things crazy things being said. I am trying to take a moment for myself, but everything that’s happening is just making it harder for me. Don’t believe everything you read and hear. These fake emails everywhere were crafted by Sam Lutfi years ago... I did not write them. He was pretending to be me and communicating with my team with a fake email address. My situation is unique, but I promise I’m doing what’s best at this moment 🌸🌸🌸 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. If you could do that, I would be forever grateful. Love you ❤️❤️❤️
