When Spears’ father was hospitalized for health problems, she went on hiatus in January 2019. She put her career on hold to spend more time with her dad and the rest of her family. Then Spears herself reportedly sought treatment at a mental health facility for what many believe is bipolar disorder (something she’s never disclosed).

Fans thought she was forced against her will into the facility, but Spears assured fans she was fine. She then attended a conservatorship hearing in May. It’s unclear how her income is being affected by her and her family’s health problems.
