Britney Spears Asks Fans For Privacy After Calls To Police Prompt Welfare Check
Britney Spears recently took to social media to ask her fans to respect her privacy after “prank phone calls” prompted a wellness check from police last week.
“I love and adore my fans but this time things went a little too far and my privacy was invaded,” Spears wrote on Twitter. She also specified that the police “never entered” her home and that once they arrived, “they quickly realized there was no issue and left immediately.”
The singer said the incident left her feeling “gaslit and bullied” and that she was “being portrayed once again in a poor an unfair light by the media.”
“During this time in my life, I truly hope the public and my fans who I care so much about can respect my privacy moving forward,” she wrote.
According to CNN, Sgt. Jason Karol from the Ventura County Sheriff’s office sent a mail saying that the department had “received some calls from concerned fans” after Spears deleted her Instagram account.
He said the wellness check was completed “out of an abundance of caution” and that it was “determined she was safe and in no danger.”
