Britney Spears is returning to the comfort of her home.

E! News has learned the 37-year-old star has been checked out and is headed home. The singer was seeking treatment at a mental health facility for some time, but it appears she is well-rested and ready to get back into her routine. 

"Britney Spears checked out of the treatment facility this morning and was taken home by her boyfriend Sam," a source close to the superstar told E! News. "It was her decision to leave, but she will still be monitored from home."

The insider continued, "She is still working with therapists and doctors who will be making sure that she is doing okay and following a healthy regimen for her mental health."

As of right now, the insider said Spears has "no plans" to "get back on the stage."

"She is urged to take it easy for a long period of time," they shared. "Britney expressed that treatment helped her slow down and focus on her health with less distractions and she needed the 'me time'."

If anything, "she's truly looking forward to quality time with her boys and is excited to be in the comfort of her own home," the source revealed.

In early April, a source previously told E! News that the Baby One More Time performer decided to enter a treatment facility in order to get some much-needed "me time." The singer herself advocated for prioritizing mental health in an Instagram post with the caption: "We all need to take time for a little 'me time.'"

Her stay at the mental health facility coincided with family drama involving her father, Jamie Spears', weakened health. "Britney's father's health has been weighing on her, and affecting her emotional well-being," an insider told E! News at the time. 

Throughout her brief stay at the facility, the singer took multiple excursions to different locations in Los Angeles, like a trip to a Los Angeles-area salon where she got her roots touched-up. 

She even left the center to celebrate Easter with boyfriend Sam Asghari at the Montage Beverly Hills, where they enjoyed "a relaxing day" enjoying the hotel's amenities. "She had a small smile and just looked chill, like she got to get away from things for a little while and enjoyed a normal day with her boyfriend," an eyewitness described.
