Britney Spears took to social media to quash rumors about her health amid claims those around her have planned an intervention for her.
TMZ was among media outlets that published reports last Thursday (February 9) that Spears’ family and friends had scheduled an intervention for the singer due to her “erratic and unstable behavior.” The publication cited “several sources with direct knowledge” reporting that Spears was “flying away”, taking “drugs that hype her up” and not taking “drugs that stabilized her.”
TMZ also reported that a source close to Spears said they were “afraid she might die.” Shortly after the report, E ! On line, Page 6 And People posted similar stories surrounding an alleged intervention by the pop star, also citing unnamed sources. On Friday, February 10, Spears took to Instagram to dismiss the reports, writing that “enough is enough.”
“It hurts my stomach that it’s even legal for people to make up stories that I almost died,” Spears said. “I mean, at some point, enough is enough.” The singer added that she intended to limit her activity on Instagram because “obviously there are a lot of people who don’t wish me well.” The message was posted alongside a text graphic that read, “A state of gratitude will shift you to a higher frequency.”
The singer then referred to her 13-year-old guardianship, which has officially It’s over in November 2021. “Once again, conservatorship has been completed for almost a year,” Spears wrote. “No, it’s not 2007…it’s 2023 and I’m making my first homemade lasagna at home.”
Spears again addressed the reports in a separate Instagram post, again expressing her frustration “that any media outlet would say all of this.” She continued: “This week in the news it was said that I almost died and that I have a manager and ‘doctors’… I don’t have a management team and I don’t have any. never again in my life…I don’t have ‘doctors’ doctors…I take Prozac for depression and that’s about it.
In the accompanying video, Spears confirmed that she “is not dead” and is “very much alive.” She continued, “I’m here, I’m happy and I’m fine.”
Last month, police confirmed Spears was in ‘no type of danger’ after undergoing a health check as concerns for the singer grew online. Despite receiving “calls to [their] hurry,” the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office in California said, “we don’t believe Britney Spears is in any danger.”
“I felt like I was gassed and bullied once the incident made headlines,” Spears later wrote about the wellness check. “During this time in my life, I really hope that the public and my fans who are so dear to me can respect my privacy in the future.”
The singer explained the incident again in another post, writing on Twitter that she was “shocked as hell” when police arrived to carry out the wellness check, and describing it as “unwarranted”. She added, “I love my fans, but for those who did, they weren’t real fans and I honestly felt it was a way of making me look bad.”
