Britney Spears responded to rumors that she’s being held against her will in a wellness-center and said that her family receives death threats in a video posted on Instagram Tuesday night.
BRITNEY SPEARS’ MOTHER LYNNE, POSTS CRYPTIC MESSAGE, ‘LIKES’ COMMENTS, WHICH SAY, THAT ‘GIVE’ SINGER ‘HER FREEDOM’
The Fans started the #FreeBritney based on unfounded rumors that the 37-year-old pop star was held against her will in a psychiatric institution by her father Jamie Spears.
The 66-year-old gained some conservatorship of his daughter’s estate in March, after the singer’s lawyer, Andrew Wallet, suddenly resigned.
Wallet had checked Britney’s finances since her public meltdown in 2008. The artist checked in a health facility for mental health care, earlier this month, to help her cope with her father’s declining health, Fox News previously reported.
“There are rumors, death threats to my family and my team, and so many things crazy things are said to have,” wrote Spears Tuesday, without clarifying whether she was kept on the mental health of the institution against her will or when she voluntarily engaged in treatment. “My situation is unique, but I promise you that I will do what is best at this time,” she added.
Adding fuel to the fire, Britney’s mother, Lynne Spears, 63, found a number of comments on her own Instagram post last week that supported rumours of her daughter being held captive. “Give Britney her freedom, her voice, her life! Love you #freeBritney,” read a message from the matriarch found.

The “Toxic” singer closed Tuesday post by assuring fans that she is strong and stands for what she wants. “Your love and devotion is great, but what I need right now is a little privacy to cope with the difficult things life is throwing my way,” Spears said. The singer announced in January that they have an indefinite hiatus on her “Britney: Domination” show in Las Vegas to be by her father’s side as he battles a serious bowel condition.
