Britney Spears Addresses Rumors That She’s Being Held Against Her Will

Britney Spears has had a tough month. A few weeks ago, she checked herself into a wellness center to take care of her mental health while dealing with her dad’s health issues.

Soon after she began treatment, rumors started circulating that Spears wasn’t doing well and was being held against her will at the facility.

Spears had remained silent as the rumors started spreading, but yesterday she finally took to Instagram to address what everyone had been saying.

What does Britney Spears have to say to the rumors?

“Hi guys, just checking in with all of you who are concerned about me,” she said in her Instagram video.

“All is well. My family has been going through a lot of stress and anxiety lately, so I just needed time to deal. Don’t worry I’ll be back very soon.”

She continued to address the situation in her Instagram caption.

“I wanted to say hi, because things that are being said have just gotten out of control!!! Wow!!!” 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. Don’t believe everything you read and hear.”

What did Spears have to say about the emails?

She went on to address the emails that had been circulating around that appeared to be from her. She alleged that they were faked by her former manager, Sam Lutfi.

“These fake emails everywhere were crafted by Sam Lutfi years ago… I did not write them,” she said. “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.”

She went on to ask her fans for 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. If you could do that, I would be forever grateful. Love you ❤️❤️❤️

Lutfi has since denied writing the emails.

Jamie Lynn Spears speaks out

Always one to back up her sister, Jamie Lynn Spears couldn’t stay silent while all these stories were flying around about Britney.

On Tuesday, she posted an old video of her and her older sister walking together while paparazzi swarmed around them.

“10 years ago, who was there??” she captioned the video. “I have been here long before anyone else, and I’ll be here long after. I love my sister with everything I have. So, anyone or anything that speaks to the contrary can GTFOH with all the comments about what you don’t understand. Do not come for me or the ones I love anymore. You can move the “blank” outta here with all that, just like this other lady who was running her mouth.”

Jaime Lynn wasn’t the only one to stick up for Britney. The singer’s boyfriend Sam Asghari also spoke to the media to tell people not to worry about the Toxic singer.

“Her fans are so amazing to be so concerned, but she’s doing great,” Asghari told TMZ. “Nobody needs to worry.”

He and Spears spent some quality time together outside of the wellness facility over Easter weekend.
