Britney Spears Wants to Leave Mental Institution Family Says No

Pop star 37-year-old Britney Spears checked herself into a mental institution less than a month ago. RadarOnline is reporting Spears wants to discharge herself from the facility.

A source said the mother of two is insisting she is cured and she wants to return home.

Spears checked herself into a facility in Los Angeles, California, after she was having a difficult time coping with the health issues concerning her father Jamie, which is declining.

The source has said that Spears’ advisors and the mental health professionals have advisors have told her she must stay in treatment for the entire 30 day period. However, the source claims Spears thinks she can handle the rest of her treatment on her own at home.

Spears’ parents Lynne and Jamie have also told their daughter that she must remain at the facility until she completes the program in one month.

However, since Spears voluntarily signed herself into the facility, there is no legal recourse for her to stay and the pop star can sign herself out if she wishes.

Spears has an extensive history of mental health issues. Her father, in 2008, became the conservator of her estate which is worth several millions of dollars. This was following several documented breakdowns in public and rehab stints.
