Britney Spears has announced that she is “taking a break” from social media after her engagement to boyfriend Sam Asghari.
The singer caused confusion on Tuesday when fans noticed her Instagram account was gone, initially suggesting it had been disabled. But Spears later clarified that she had deleted the account herself:
“Don’t worry folks… I’m just taking a little break from social media to celebrate my engagement !!! I’ll be back soon “, she said wrote on Twitter.
Spears’ Instagram account has long been at the center of the battle over her guardianship, a complex legal arrangement she was placed under in 2008. The deal, usually reserved for the very old or infirm, has her father, Jamie, Spears, in charge of his finances. , health care and other important decisions. Spears described the guardianship as “abusive” and recently testified before a judge about his father’s dismissal.
As Britney Spears fought in secret to regain control of her life, fans assumed she was sending secret messages through her Instagram account, where she posted memes and photos of her children. His sometimes cryptic messages even inspired a podcast dissecting their true meanings.
As her fight to regain control of her life became public, she began posting more candidly on Instagram, sharing the criticisms of her father and sister in a recent caption. “My so-called support system hurt me deeply,” she wrote.
Jamie Spears has since filed a request to terminate guardianship. Lawyers for Jamie Spears said, “As Mr. Spears has said time and time again, all he wants is what’s best for his daughter.”
Days later, Spears announced her engagement to Asghari on Sunday with a message displaying a diamond ring.
Spears had said in his plea to the court to remove guardianship that the agreement prevented her from marrying Asghari and having a baby.
