Police rushed to pop star Britney Spears’ house after she posted a strange video of herself dancing erratically with two butcher knives.
Authorities said they conducted a wellness check based on fans concerns after the dancing footage was posted.
According to TMZ, police sources said “they received a call Wednesday expressing concern for Britney based on her recent conduct on social media. We’re told deputies were also familiar with the knife video, and out of an abundance of caution, deputies from the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department went out to Britney’s house.”
Britney was home and reportedly spoke to deputies and assured them she was okay, the police said.
In 2022, Britney Spears’ conservatorship case garnered national attention amid her attempts to regain control over her finances and livelihood.
She was under a conservatorship for nearly 14 years under father James Spears. The legal fight ended up at the center of a widespread #FreeBritney campaign aimed at regranting the pop singer authority over her medical, personal and financial decisions.
She alleged she became a victim of misconduct at the hands of her father.
Since the conservatorship ended, Britney has exhibited strange behavior that has worried fans across the globe. The popstar recently divorced her partner, Sam Asghari, after just 14 months of marriage.
She met and began dating Asghari, a model and actor, when he appeared in her video for the song “Slumber Party” in 2016.
She cited her desire to marry Asghari as among the reasons she wanted an end to the constraining conservatorship, which she said was preventing it. The two announced their engagement in September of 2021 as it became clear she would be freed from the conservatorship — which was ended that November.
