Britney Spears Offers An Update On Instagram

Britney Spears took to Instagram to check in with fans and address a slew of rumors about her current status. This month, reports broke that the 37-year-old entered an unnamed treatment center. According to People, she was seeking an “all-encompassing wellness treatment.” The news came after she embarked on an indefinite professional hiatus earlier this year to spend time supporting her ailing father. However, it sparked concern amongst a core group that she was being held against her will. She addressed that belief in the video post late last night (April 23). “All is well. My family has been going through a lot of stress and anxiety lately, so I just needed time to deal,” she said.

She opened up even more in the accompanying caption. “I wanted to say hi, because things that are being said have just gotten out of control,” she wrote. “There’s rumors, death threats to my family and my team, and just so many things crazy things being said. I am trying to take a moment for myself, but everything that’s happening is just making it harder for me.” After a trio of flower emojis, she assured that things really were alright and requested privacy. “You may not know this about me, but I am strong, and stand up for what I want! 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.”

The post was met with an outpouring of support from fans and loved ones. Boyfriend Sam Asghari also joined in to echo her request for privacy in the comments section. “Sometimes showing respect and privacy is the best support people can offer,” he wrote.

I wanted to say hi, because things that are being said have just gotten out of control!!! Wow!!! There’s rumors, death threats to my family and my team, and just so many things crazy things being said. I am trying to take a moment for myself, but everything that’s happening is just making it harder for me. Don’t believe everything you read and hear. These fake emails everywhere were crafted by Sam Lutfi years ago… I did not write them. He was pretending to be me and communicating with my team with a fake email address. My situation is unique, but I promise I’m doing what’s best at this moment 🌸🌸🌸 You may not know this about me, but I am strong, and stand up for what I want! 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. Love you ❤️❤️❤️
