Britney Spears has checked into a mental health facility after suffering from emotional distress.

The pop star (37) is expected to be in treatment for a month after being admitted more than a week ago, 'Variety' has confirmed.

It's believed that Spears, who announced a break from music in January, has been concerned by her father Jamie's health crisis over the past year.

The singer halted her Las Vegas residency to look after her parent (67), writing on Instagram: "A couple of months ago, my father was hospitalised 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."

A source told 'People': "Her dad being sick has taken a toll on her. "
