Britney Spears has been in the public eye since her days as a child actor on the Mickey Mouse Club.

She became an international pop icon less than a decade later with the release of "...Baby One More Time".


That life in the public eye also meant that the world was privy to all of her triumphs and struggles. However, it also means a fan base that jumps up to support her when times are hard.

On Wednesday, it was reported that Britney Spears checked herself into a mental health facility.



Spears' father, Jamie Spears, has been in failing health. His condition worsened after he was hospitalized for a ruptured colon back in January.

This has taken a toll on the singer. While Britney takes time in the facility, her children are being cared for by their father, Kevin Federline.

Fans reached out to offer their words of support.





Many were inspired by her willingness to take care of her mental health.






And many hoped people would not turn her choice to seek help into a punchline.





We're all keeping Britney and her father Jamie in our thoughts.
