Singer Britney Spears is giving an update on her mental health.
On Tuesday, Spears posted an Instagram video, saying, “Hi, guys, just checking in with all of you who are concerned about me. All is well. My family has been going through a lot of stress and anxiety lately, so I just needed time to deal, but don’t worry, I’ll be back very soon.”
The 37-year-old made the decision to clear the air on her well-being because “things that are being said have just gotten out of control!!!”
Alluding to the #freebritney movement, which believes she is being held against her will, Britney revealed that her team and family have received “death threats.” She admitted, “I am trying to take a moment for myself, but everything that’s happening is just making it harder for me.”
She emphasized in her Instagram caption, “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!”
While she showed appreciation to her fans, she stressed the importance of privacy. She explained, “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 ❤️❤️❤️.”
That same day, Britney treated herself to some frozen yogurt in Los Angeles. She rocked a short white dress and matching sunnies for the outing with several members of her team.
Earlier in the day, Britney’s boyfriend Sam Asghari told TMZ photogs, “Her fans are so amazing to be so concerned. Nobody needs to worry, she’s doing amazing, she will be back soon.”
