Britney Spears is more than irritated after concerned fans asked the police to check on her.

According to Page Six, the Ventura County Sheriff's Office received calls asking them to perform a wellness check on the singer.

A spokesperson for the police said:

"I can confirm that we did get calls into our dispatch, and essentially, I can confirm that we don't believe that Britney Spears is in any kind of harm or any kind of danger."

Spears allegedly posted "911" then deleted her Instagram account, which caused distress to some fans. It should be noted Spears has deleted her Instagram several times in the past.

Worried fans even posted TikTok videos of their calls to the police.

Spears herself addressed the incident on Twitter.

"As everyone knows the police were called to my home based on some prank phone calls."
"I love and adore my fans but this time things went a little too far and my privacy was invaded."

Spears revealed the police came to her gate and left once they realized there "was no issue."

She continued:

"This felt like I was being gaslit and bullied once the incident made it to the news and being portrayed once again in a poor and unfair light by the media."
"During this time in my life, I truly hope the public and my fans who I can so much about can respect my privacy moving forward."
"All the love, B."

Many responded the incident is giving off major 2007 vibes and reeked of abbleism.

Mental illness carries a heavy stigma. It isn't helped by infantilizing the person with the diagnosis which happens very often to women.

Well meaning, but misguided people put the mentally ill under a microscope, picking apart every thing they do and say. The constant pressure to act perfectly or suffer consequences puts tremendous pressure on the subject of the constant scrutiny.

They echoed Spears' request to respect her privacy.




Some, however, agreed Spears displayed concerning behavior and claimed fans just wanted to make sure she was safe.





The concern from fans comes just days after Spears was captured on video "causing a scene" at a restaurant.

According to TMZ, the behavior began and escalated because restaurant patrons were recording the singer on their cell phones.

While Spears' behavior may be concerning to some, we do hope her fans listen to her pleas and respect her privacy.
