How did it all go so wrong so fast? She finished a highly successful Las Vegas residency at Planet Hollywood in December of 2017, barely 17 months ago. Then she went on tour in July 2018. And in October of 2018 she announced a second Las Vegas residency this time at Park MGM beginning in February 2019, which went on hold before it ever began.

Since then Britney has been struggling and was admitted to a mental health facility by her father and conservator. Now her conservatorship is going to undergo what some feel is much needed scrutiny over how Britney's finances have been managed, or perhaps mis-managed. And according to People Magazine, it seems Britney has a long way to go.

"Britney Spears is weathering a difficult time amid her conservatorship drama, post-treatment lifestyle and her father Jamie’s recovery after suffering a life-threatening colon rupture last fall. “Britney is dealing with debilitating emotional issues that need to be treated with medications. It’s like she isn’t in control over her emotions right now,” a Spears family source tells PEOPLE. “Everything is very up and down.” PEOPLE previously reported that Spears’ prior medication regimen had lost some efficacy over time. “There is no doubt that she needs to be on medications to try and find a balance again, but it’s very scary when the meds are not working,” the source continues. According to the insider, Spears experiences a range of emotions on a daily basis. “Right now, she is very sluggish and down. Some days, she is a zombie. There is no life and definitely no passion in her. It’s very sad.”

Your physical and mental health is really everything. We know according to court records that Britney informed the judge her father, Jaime, was administering drugs without her consent and she expressed wanting more freedom (having visitors of her choosing for example). That was not granted, by the way.

Posts have resumed on her Insta. Were they posted in real time or are these older photos/videos that make it look like everything is going fine?
