The #FreeBritney movement is still going strong, and now, fans have a real reason to be concerned for the “Toxic” singer.
On Sunday, April 21, Britney Spears was caught on camera leaving The Montage hotel in Beverly Hills after days in a rehab facility.
When walking to her car with boyfriend Sam Asghari, the star looked exhausted, dazed and disheveled. Her hair was messy, and she wore no makeup.
In bizarre photos, she was seen ducking down, hiding her dark eye circles as her man held a protective arm around her. She was wearing a strapless floral red dress and tan Birkenstocks.
As RadarOnline.com readers know, Britney, 37, entered a psychiatric wellness center earlier this month after allegedly suffering a breakdown over her beloved father Jamie’s life-threatening colon rupture, invasive surgeries and declining health.
A PR worker in Los Angeles spotted her days before she checked into the facility and told Radar, “She looked not normal. She just looked kind of out of it. Once I heard she went into rehab it all made sense which is so sad because she didn’t look okay.”
Britney has not spoken out on the matter, and her family has been extremely secretive, all which has caused fans to create countless conspiracy theories. The most popular one is that the pop diva was being held in the rehab facility against her will after she stopped taking her meds.
Worried fans started the hashtag #FreeBritney in an effort to raise awareness to the problem and save the star. Strangely, Britney’s mom, Lynne Spears, added fuel to the fire by “liking” several of the #FreeBritney posts on Instagram!
A source close to her exclusively told Radar that Britney was released from the center on Easter Sunday after doctors “were able to stabilize her medication.”
“Britney is going to set the record straight in the right time,” the insider added.
An eyewitness told Radar that Britney and Sam, 25, "came out of the Montage a little after 5:00 p.m. on Easter Sunday. They had been there all day together."
"She was able to leave to enjoy the holiday with her boyfriend. We know they spent all day there and believe she may have gone back to the facility afterwards. It seems like she was just getting out and having a break and it seems to be working," continued the eyewitness, adding that the singer seemed to go back to rehab willingly despite rumors she's being forced into treatment.
Her exit from rehab came just as her sister, Jamie Lynn, posted a series of sweet family photos from her Easter celebration. It also came as her boyfriend, Sam, shared a series of videos of his delicious holiday dinner.
So In Love
Britney’s last Instagram post is from April 3, when she shared a quote about taking care of your “mind, body, spirit.” Her supportive boyfriend reposted the quotes, just as a source told Radar he’d been visiting the star in rehab every single day!
“Sam is not going anywhere and has been with her non-stop. He was a huge part of her decision to go and get help,” the source said. “She is doing as well as she can be and has calmed down a lot. He is so proud of her.”
An eyewitness who crossed paths with them this Sunday also noted the sweet bond between them.
"Sam was sweet and seems very protective of her. He immediately let her out, got the door for her and seems overall very loving towards her. She was carrying pair of sneakers and a sweatshirt along with a handbag. She dropped a sneaker as she got into the car and Sam didn’t skip a beat and immediately picked it up for her. She had a small smile and just looked chill, like she got to just get away from things for a little while and enjoy a normal day with her boyfriend," the eyewitness told Radar.
Radar readers know Jamie was put in charge of Britney’s finances after her infamous meltdown of 2007, when she shaved her head and attacked a paparazzo’s car with an umbrella.
It’s unclear how Britney is doing after her most recent crisis, but for now, she’s cancelled her shows and is staying out of the spotlight.
