Britney Spears Takes a Break from Treatment as She Spends Easter with Boyfriend Sam Asghari
Britney Spears "had a short break this weekend to enjoy Easter," a family insider tells PEOPLE
On Easter Sunday, Spears, 37, and Asghari, 25, were seen leaving The Montage Resort and Hotel in Beverly Hills.
“Britney is still receiving treatment but had a short break this weekend to enjoy Easter. She spent time with Sam,” a Spears family insider tells PEOPLE, adding that friends and family are still concerned about the singer.
A separate source previously told PEOPLE that Spears is encouraged to keep up with some usual routines as part of the treatment process.
Her outing at the luxury L.A. hotspot is the second time she has been spotted since the source told PEOPLE exclusively that she checked into a facility for “all-encompassing wellness treatment” earlier this month.
Over a week ago, Spears got her hair done at an L.A. salon.
In November 2018, the singer’s father became seriously ill after his colon spontaneously ruptured. Jamie’s hospitalization and subsequent surgeries have taken an emotional toll on his daughter, according to the Spears family insider, who recently told PEOPLE that she “was absolutely devastated and out-of-mind worried” when he first entered the hospital.
The insider adds that Spears’ father Jamie, who continues to recover from a life-threatening colon rupture, is “doing okay” healthwise.
Late last year, the mother of two was gearing up for a return to the Las Vegas strip with her show Domination following her wildly successful Vegas show Britney: Piece of Me on tour that summer.
But in January, Spears announced that she was taking an indefinite break from work to support her father. “[My father and I] have a very special relationship and I want to be with my family at this time just like they have always been there for me,” she said in her statement to PEOPLE about halting her career.
The family insider also told PEOPLE that Spears has every right to take time off to focus on her mental health.
“To ask her to keep up with her shows while worrying about her dad is not anything the people that love her would ask,” the insider said.
“The recovery is slow, but he is getting better. Everyone has been worried sick. His condition seemed so frail, but Jamie is strong.”
