Britney Spears received an unexpected knock on her door today from the police.
The former Disney star and pop princess deleted her Instagram account overnight after a series of incoherent posts, sending fans into a frenzied panic.
The furor comes just weeks after Spears was photographed having a mini-breakdown in public with her husband, and fans are more worried than ever about the mental state of their favorite singer.
Britney Spears Fans Call Police
TMZ reported on Wednesday that police were called to the home of Britney Spears after fans became alarmed at her online presence – or rather, lack of presence.
The outlet reports, “Britney Spears’ fans believed something was seriously wrong with the singer after her Instagram account disappeared … calling the cops to her home to see if she was in danger.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Britney deleted her Instagram account — something she’s done many times — at some point within the last 12 hours. For whatever reason, fans became alarmed, believing the deleted account meant Britney was in trouble … and called the Ventura Co. Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies from the sheriff’s office then went out to Britney’s home and determined there was no reason to believe she was in danger. It’s unclear if they spoke to Britney directly, or if someone else assured them she was OK.”
It’s also unclear exactly why fans panicked, since Spears has deleted and re-opened her account many times, but a series of incoherent posts before the account went dark are likely to blame.
And their concern could also be due to a recent public episode that has fans feeling a little bit concerned.
Britney Spears Has Mini-Breakdown in Public
Just under two weeks ago, Spears made headlines for all the wrong reasons.
In mid-January, Spears and her husband Sam Asghari were having dinner when things got hairy.
Spears and Asghari turned up at LA’s JOEY restaurant in Woodland Hills with their security escort.
People instantly recognized the famous couple and began taking cell phone photographs.
Spears allegedly got upset and her behavior turned “manic.” Eyewitnesses of the event say that the star was yelling and talking gibberish, spouting nonsense words.
According to those at the restaurant, Asghari got upset and stormed out of the restaurant.
Video obtained by TMZ showed Spears sitting alone at a booth speaking incoherently, after Asghari left.
Ever since the former Disney darling was freed from her conservatorship, fans have worried about her mental health. But being rude and acting crazy in public isn’t proof that someone is a danger to themselves and others – so for now, Spears remains free.
And according to the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department, last night’s behavior was no cause for concern.
