Pop idol Britney Spears is clearing up rumours about her mental health and well-being on her social media, confirming: “All is well”.

37-year-old Toxic singer checked into a mental health facility earlier in April to cope with the stress of her father’s ongoing illness.

Rumours were swirling that there was more going on beneath the surface of Spears’ visit, but she shared a video on Instagram on April 23 to dispel the myth.

“Hi guys, just checking in with all of you who are concerned about me,” Britney said in the video, referring to her father Jamie, who she is very close with.

“My family has been going through a lot of stress and anxiety lately, so I just needed time to deal. But don’t worry, I’ll be back very soon,” she continued.

Her fans were deeply concerned about her treatment and suspected that her family had forced her to enter the facility.

Mental health has been known to play a big role in addiction as a whole. Brittany spears is a perfect example of this. She has finally understood that she cannot enter a drug rehab program without getting help with her mental health issues.

A group of protesters gathered outside City Hall on Monday in LA to demand her release from the facility after claims about her mental health went viral.

Britney’s caption disputes the “out of control” things which fans online have said, and even alluded to shocking death threats made to her family and team;

“I am trying to take a moment for myself, but everything that’s happening is just making it harder for me,” Britney wrote. “Don’t believe everything you read and hear.”

She wrote a detailed and emotional Instagram post about her dad’s health back in early January;

“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. I had to make the difficult decision to put my full focus and energy on my family at this time.”

Britney also spoke out against her former manager, Sam Lutfi, who she claimed wrote fake emails in her name to communicate with her team; “My situation is unique, but I promise I’m doing what’s best at this moment,” she said.

“You may not know this about me, but I am strong, and stand up for what I want!” Britney continued in the social media video.

“Your love and dedication is amazing, but what I need right now is a little bit of privacy to deal with all the hard things that life is throwing my way. If you could do that, I would be forever grateful.”

We wish her well and hope her father makes a speedy and full recovery. We need Brit back to her best.

Former Friends actor Matthew Perry has been battling addiction for many years, but his fans are worried about his welfare after his latest tweet.

The 49-year-old's weight has hugely fluctuated over the years of his substance abuse, with reports of pancreatitis after his Vicodin addiction and use of methadone, amphetamines, and alcohol. 

He entered rehab in 1997, 2001 and 2015, the BBC reported. He also told that publication in 2016 that he barely remembered filming three seasons of Friends.

He tweeted this morning; "I got kicked out of therapy today," leading many fans to worry that he's slipping back into substance abuse.

The post comes only five months after he tweeted in September that he had spent three months in hospital to undergo surgery to repair a ruptured bowel.

He told his followers, "Three months in a hospital bed. Check."

He spoke to ABC News in 2018, saying; "Mostly it was drinking and opiates. I think I was pretty good at hiding it from my Friends co-stars but eventually people are aware."

The actor says he has used his abuse issues to aid fellow addicts, telling The Hollywood Reporter:

"I've had a lot of ups and downs in my life and a lot of wonderful accolades, but the best thing about me is that if an alcoholic comes up to me and says, 'Will you help me stop drinking?' I will say, 'Yes. I know how to do that.'" 

We wish him a healthy recovery, and hope that he's taking care of his mental health too.

It's not news that Demi Lovato has had a ridiculously tough year, following her opioid overdose and subsequent trip to rehab in the past six months. 

After taking time away from the spotlight, the 26-year-old singer has finally returned to the 'gram for an important cause: to encourage her fans to vote in the US mid-term elections.

She posted this today from her polling place:

"I am so grateful to be home in time to vote! One vote can make a difference, so make sure your voice is heard!"

Lovato isn't the only celebrity to display their political standpoints and show their stance, but Demi's is all the more valuable for the struggle she is currently enduring following 90 days of sobriety.


A post shared by Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) on

The former child star was admitted to a rehabilitation facility on July 24 after suffering an opioid overdose in her Hollywood Hills mansion, currently on sale for €8.995 million.

She stayed in Beverley Hills hospital for almost two weeks before seeking in-patient treatment for her addiction, which she has suffered with throughout her life, alongside mental illness and eating disorders.

The star entered a treatment facility in 2010 for bipolar disorder, self-harm, addiction and bulimia, but relapsed after leaving the centre. Following this, she entered a sober living facility for a year, and celebrated six years of sobriety in March.

Her July overdose shocked fans and the famous alike. It followed the release of her semi-autobiographical single, Sober in June.

Her previous Instagram post is a selfie from July 23, the day before entering rehab, without a caption. She appears to have been dispelling fan fears that her life had ended as a result of the overdose:

The singer thanked her friends and family for their support during her troubles, and has been silent ever since. Today, she has used her platform to encourage a higher voter turnout.

Her mother, Dianna De La Garza,  has recently spoken out about her daughter's advancement: “Yes, she has 90 days and I couldn’t be more thankful or more proud of her because addiction being a disease, it’s work."

"She’s getting the help she needs. And that, in itself, encourages me about her future and about the future of our family.”

The 26-year-old singer was spotted by paparazzi out for the first time in Los Angeles last weekend, leading the public to believe that she has finished her stint at an addiction facility.

She went out to dinner with friend and designer Henry Levy, TMZ reported.

Her mother has been especially vocal about how grateful their family is that Demi is alive:

“I just feel like the reason she’s alive today is because of the millions of prayers that went up that day, when everybody found out what was happening,” she said.

“I don’t think she would be here if it hadn’t been for those prayers. I couldn’t have asked for a better team of people to save her life.”

Demi Lovato has been an absolute warrior during her recovery, and reports say that Demi is preparing to leave this week.

The singer was found unconscious in her home last week due to an overdose.

Demi has been struggling with addiction on and off again for many years, and she has always been open about her struggle. Just last year, she published a youtube documentary about her life, laying it all out for people to hear and learn from.

It is important to Demi that no matter what she is going through, she can use her experience to help others going through the same thing.

Many stars struggle with addiction, and it can be so difficult to break free from its clutches when under pressure from the limelight.

Demi has it even harder due to her diagnosed bipolar disorder. She is constantly on the road, performing for thousands of fans, and having every bit of her life all over social media.

The singer also struggled with an eating disorder, making dependency even more difficult to let go of in her life. 

It was suspected that Demi had relapsed after she surprised fans with her song “Sober” a few days before her overdose.

In the track, she apologies to her family and fans: “I’m not sober anymore. […] I wanna be a role model, but I'm only human.”

A source told TMZ that Demi nearly died but is stable and said to be released this week from the hospital.

Demi has continued to be transparent about her journey in life through her lyrics and in interviews as well.

Many of her fans love that the star is so real with them and were absolutely devastated when they heard the news of her hospitalisation.

The singer has not announced what her plans are after her release yet, but we can assume she will make a statement soon verifying her recovered health. 

We are glad to see that Demi has a supportive circle of loved ones around her, and we hope that she can continue to be strong and seek the help she needs.

Kid Cudi has checked himself into rehab for depression and suicidal thoughts. 

Speaking to TMZ, the rapper explained that he hasn't felt "at peace" in years and was spiralling down a dark hole.

He said: "I would've done something to myself. I simply am a damaged human swimming in a pool of emotions everyday of my life."

"I really am sorry. I'll be back, stronger, better. Reborn. I feel like shit, I feel so ashamed. I'm sorry," he added.

Kid recently hit out at his mentors, Kanye West and Drake for not working with him on his new music.

We're glad he's getting the help that he needs.


She’s been open about her struggles with anxiety and depression, but MTV’s Catelynn Lowell is still struggling to live a drug-free life.

In a Teen Mom OG sneak peek, the 24-year-old explains how she learned to manage her mental health issues during a 30 day stint in rehab, but confesses that she still regularly smokes weed.

Speaking to her mother-in-law, Kim, Catelynn says: “I learned a lot of crap everyday…We had classes and stuff you had to go to.  I haven’t had a trigger.”

As reported by Radar Online, Tyler’s mother was not convinced by the young mum and proceeded to ask her straight out if she’s been using drugs.

The star – who gave her first child, Carly, up for adoption while filming 16 and Pregnant – replies: “It’s something I probably won’t talk about because I don’t want the whole world to know.”

Catelynn’s husband of one year then tells his mother that he has chosen to remain silent on his partner’s drug use because “she’s responsible for her[self]”.

Other clips highlight the damaging effect the issue has had on their marriage.

In an extended trailer for the series, Catelynn – who gave birth to Novalee Reign on New Year’s Day 2015 – claims that her “mental illness ruins everything”.

Earlier this month, the star admitted on Twitter that she has driven while high.

When Demi Lovato was admitted to rehab six years ago many thought her time in the spotlight had come to an end.

But – as a new interview with CBS has revealed – the period Demi spent away from the public eye actually marked a turning point in her life from which she was eventually able to propel her career to new heights.

Having recently confessed that attending rehab helped her ditch her Disney image, the Confident singer has now shared that while attending the CAST rehabilitation centre in LA for depression, bulimia and substance abuse, she made a promise to God that she would help others with their mental health problems.

She said: “It sounds ridiculous, but I kind of made a pact with God.  And I don't even think you're supposed to do that, but I promised, ‘If You make me a singer one day, I'm going to use my voice for so much more than singing, and I'm going to help people with it.’”

Since then Demi has gone on to speak openly about her personal experience of mental health in a bid to break down the stigma which is still seen to surround the topic.

On top of that, the 24-year-old star revealed that she is now a co-owner of the facility at which she received treatment when she was just 18.

According to TIME, CAST announced in June that it would be holding talks at every stop on Demi’s current tour. 

Fair play!


CBB's Marco Pierre White Jr has announced that he's going to rehab after he broke up with his new girlfriend Holly.

The reality star has been on a rollercoaster of nights out since leaving the infamous house and now it seems that it has all become too much for him to handle.

Marco posted several tweets during the week, which made his fans worry about his health:


Then, he tweeted about "rehab" and becoming sober:

We hope he finds the help that he needs.



Last month Zayn Malik revealed to the world that he has been suffering with anxiety after he was forced to cancel his appearance at Capital Radio’s Summertime Ball.

At the time Zayn's model girlfriend Gigi Hadid was one of the first people to publicly announce their desire to support Zayn through his issues and it seems Gigi is now eager to keep that promise.

According to Celebs Now, the 21-year-old star wants Zayn to go to a US rehabilitation facility to receive treatment for his anxiety and already has a number of LA-based lifestyle gurus lined up to help the former One Direction band member.  

A source told the Now: "Gigi worries that Zayn’s anxiety attacks could ruin his career and in turn their relationship."

“She’s already lined up some of LA’s top lifestyle gurus to help convince Zayn to take a two-week break at a treatment facility.  But it’s not going to be easy.”

The source went on to explain how the pop star tries to escape his issues and commitments through partying.

They said: “When Zayn’s really in a bad place, all he wants to do is party and escape from his anxiety and pressures of real life and a relationship.”

“He just cuts himself off from the world – like when he has cancelled appearances but been spotted partying the same day.  Perhaps it’s his coping mechanism?”

Zayn has admitted in the past that as well as suffering from anxiety, he also smokes marijuana.

He told Complex magazine: "I smoke sometimes when I’m writing. Sometimes it helps with the creative process, depending on the strength of the weed. It helped me think outside the box."

However despite his personal issues, Zayn and Gigi seem to be closer than ever lately as only yesterday the Topshop model shared a sweet snap of them together.
