Britney Spears is keeping her fans in the loop after clearing up rumors that she entered a wellness facility against her will earlier this month. The “Sometimes” singer posted a video of her working out on Wednesday, April 24, where she admitted that “stress” has caused her to drop some weight recently. Read on for all the details.
Britney, 37, shared a clip of her working out in a yellow sports bra and grey sweats.
“Who knew stress would be a great 5 pound weight loss,” she captioned. “Yay for me.”
The pop icon posted a separate Instagram clip the night before on Tuesday, April 24.
“Hi guys, just checking in with all of you who are concerned about me. All is well. My family has been going through a lot of stress and anxiety lately, so I just needed time to deal, but don’t worry, I’ll be back very soon,” Britney said in the clip.
She was more detailed in the caption section of the post amid growing concerns from some of her fans who think she’s being held against her will.
"I wanted to say hi, because things that are being said have just gotten out of control!!! Wow!!! There’s rumors, death threats to my family and my team, and just so many things crazy things being said," Britney wrote in the caption. "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. These fake emails everywhere were crafted by Sam Lutfi years ago... I did not write them."
"My situation is unique, but I promise I’m doing what’s best at this moment,” she continued. “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."
The mother-of-two entered a wellness facility on Wednesday, April 3. Her father Jamie’s health issues were reportedly why she decided to do this.
She’s been seen out and about numerous times since her stint at the facility began.
Britney was spotted leaving The Montage Hotel on Sunday, April 22, with her boyfriend Sam Asghari. She also took a solo trip to a frozen yogurt stand two days later.
