Britney Spears Fans Think There’s Another Reason She May Have Deleted Her Instagram Besides Her Engagement

Britney Spears has been making many headlines lately. Fans are well aware that her conservatorship has been suspended after a judge described the arrangement with her father, Jamie, to be “toxic.” NBC News reports that the pop singer is focused on healing, spending more time with her sons, and focusing on what is to come in the future.

Another thing dominating the news is that Spears recently stepped out with a massive diamond ring on her finger, and fans couldn’t be happier for her. Soon after it happened, Spears, who usually is pretty active on social media, decided to take a break for a while to celebrate her upcoming nuptials. Now, fans think that there is another reason she may have deleted her Instagram besides her engagement.

What was the reason Spears gave on Twitter after her Instagram was deleted? 

Fans love following celebrities on social media, and the fact that Spears had 34 million followers on Instagram more than proved that. According to Insider, the platform was her primary source of communication with her fans, which is why it was a huge shock when she deleted it.

She began using the “#FreeBritney” hashtag, and a short time later, deactivated the account altogether. Fans wondered if Instagram had removed the account. However, the social media platform itself said that it was not. So, what was the reason that Spears gave for deleting it herself?

She sent out a tweet saying that it was due to her recent engagement to longtime boyfriend, Sam Asghari, explaining that she was taking a break so that they could celebrate. Spears assured fans that the break was temporary and she would be back, but that didn’t stop people from wondering if the engagement was the only reason.

It is no secret that a new documentary called Framing Britney Spears is now streaming, and a recent tweet suggested this may be the real reason why Spears decided to disappear from Instagram. The New York Times reports that the documentary uncovered many details regarding Spears’ conservatorship, and she may not be too happy about it.

What did a Twitter user have to say about the whole situation? One person took to the social media platform to speculate that the documentary is the reason Spears canceled her Instagram, and the pop star herself even had a reply. Spears tweeted that she couldn’t “believe it,” followed by a string of engagement ring emojis.

While this response can undoubtedly leave things open to interpretation, we do know that the singer said that “I truly believe this conservatorship is abusive,” and continued by adding, “I don’t feel like I can live a full life.”

Britney’s reaction to the documentary

It can’t be easy when the entire world knows your personal, intimate secrets, and most people can’t imagine being in Spears’ position. According to Harper’s Bazaar, she actually “cried for two weeks” following the release, and even more shocking is that she didn’t even watch it.

The film shed a bit of light on the #FreeBritney movement, and Spears posted that “My life has always been very speculated,” Spears began the post. “[I’ve been] watched … and judged really my whole life!!!” We wish Britney nothing but the best in the future and hope that she finds the happiness that she deserves.
