Britney Spears broke her silence two days after anxious fans phoned the police at her residence to check on her well-being and to make sure she was okay. In a message that she released on Thursday, the singer, who is 41 years old, begged her supporters and the media to respect her privacy.
“I love and cherish my fans but this time things went a little too far and my privacy was violated,” Spears said in an open letter, explaining that police were called in response to “some hoax phone calls.”
The pop artist said, “The police never entered my house, and when they got to my gate, they instantly recognized there was no problem and went promptly.” “After the event was reported in the press and I was once again depicted in a negative and unjust way by the media, I felt as if I were being harassed and gaslighted because of what happened. During this period in my life, it is my sincere desire that the general public, as well as my fans, whom I care so deeply about, would respect my right to personal space going forward. Thank you very much, B.”
On Tuesday night, deputies from the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office rushed to Britney Spears’ house in Thousand Oaks, California, after receiving reports from concerned fans about her well-being. After the “Toxic” singer’s Instagram account was deleted, her devoted fans began to express their concern about her whereabouts. Spears is said to have written in a post that has since been removed that she “changed my name to River Red” before deleting her account. Some individuals thought it was a secret term for asking for assistance.
In recent weeks, numerous people have expressed concern over Spears’ Instagram. The tweets on social media appeared at the same time as a story on TMZ that said the performer exhibited unusual behavior at a restaurant. The celebrity news website allegedly published a video in which Spears can be seen babbling incoherently and her husband, Sam Asghari, can be seen storming out of the house. TMZ received a vehement denial from Asghari about the existence of any “manic incident.” A worker at the restaurant is said to have confirmed to a fan account that the information in the story is false.
After making allegations that she was being abused by her conservator, Spears was finally released from her conservatorship in 2021. Fans of the singer played a pivotal role in the organization of the #FreeBritney campaign, which attracted attention from across the globe in the midst of the diva’s legal dispute with her father, Jamie Spears.
