According to reports, the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department conducted a welfare check on Britney Spears.
This comes after Spears was seen with multiple cuts on her body as well as bandages, after she posted a video of herself dancing around holding 2 large knives in her hands.
The clip quickly went viral.
The explosive video comes after the news of Britney’s impending divorce from Sam Asghari. Britney and Sam first started dating way back in 2016 after meeting on the set of one of Britney’s videos. They got engaged in September 2021, and officially tied the knot in June 2022.
Twenty-nine-year-old Sam was there the whole way through the Free Britney movement, and seemed to be firmly on Britney’s side through the whole saga, even posing in a T-shirt for the cause.
But ever since her restrictive conservatorship ended, forty-one-year-old Britney has been making headlines across the world.
At first, she was delighting fans with the glimpse of newfound freedom, but it wasn’t long before fans began to grow concerned for the star.
Earlier this year, fans were left concerned about Brit’s well-being once again, after her Instagram account disappeared from the site. In total, she has reportedly deactivated her account a whopping 8 times over the last year.
Fans were so concerned about the star in fact, that one time they called the Ventura Co. Sheriff’s Office, and the police actually paid a visit to Britney at her home, as per TMZ.
She took to Twitter to share her response, writing: “As everyone knows, the police were called to my home based on some prank phone calls. I love and adore my fans but this time things went a little too far and my privacy was invaded.
“The police never entered my home and when they came to my gate they quickly realised there was no issue and left immediately.
“I truly hope the public and my fans who I care so much about can respect my privacy moving forward,” she concluded.
Since this incident, Britney has been laying pretty low. However, in recent months, both her and her husband, Sam Asghari, have been spotted out and about without their wedding bands on, leading to speculation as to whether the pair were still together.
However, earlier this month, the news was confirmed by TMZ that the pair are heading for divorce.
The outlet reported that it comes after ‘deep trouble’ in Britney and Sam’s relationship, with sources claiming that a ‘nuclear’ argument about cheating allegations as being the final nail in the coffin. They add that Sam has moved out of the house and is living in his own place.
They went on to report that Sam was hitting out at Britney by telling people that she cheated on him with at least one male member of staff, and has engaged in inappropriate conduct with other workers. He claims that there is compromising footage of Britney with a staffer, which confirmed his suspicions.
However, the latest update from the star has sparked concern from fans.
The singer is no stranger to posting dancing videos on her Instagram, but her latest post has fans anxious about her wellbeing.
In a video posted earlier today, Britney shared a video of herself with a chef’s knife in each hand as she danced around in a bikini.
“I started playing in the kitchen with knives today,” she wrote in the caption.
“Don’t worry they are NOT real knives!!! Halloween is soon,” she added.
Despite her insistence that the knives were not real, she has since been seen with multiple cuts on her body, as well as wearing bandages.
Dozens of fans have shared their concerns for the star online, with one writing: “Omg that this scary prayers.”
While another commented: “Please someone who cares about her get her some help!!! She needs an intervention,” a third added.
And now, the star has received a welfare check from the police.
Deputies allegedly went to her $7.4 million property “to make sure she was safe.”
A source told TMZ that it was conducted “out of an abundance of caution.” and that they confirmed she “was okay.”
