Fans of Britney Spears were concerned for her safety after her Instagram account disappeared and they called the police to check on her.
According to TMZ, the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office received calls from fans who believed that the deletion of Britney’s Instagram account meant that she was in danger.
Deputies from the sheriff’s office went to Britney’s home and determined that there was no reason to believe that she was in danger.
It is unclear whether they spoke to Britney directly or if someone else assured them that she was okay.
This incident follows the singer changing her name on the social media platform to River Red, posting a video of herself dancing and announcing “I changed my name to River Red” and including the message “don’t underestimate the power of purity.”
The announcement was made in a cryptic post on her Instagram, where she shared a picture of Mars and wrote in the caption, “I changed my name to River Red. Yet the fire is where it illuminates… to stare at it and jump right in with no fear at all !!! S**t. Now I have to find my FORK!!!.”
Additionally, it was reported that Britney has recently been showing her Calabasas home off-market to potential buyers.
She only bought the home last year, but it seems that she never really liked the place, buying it for $11.8 million and now selling it for $12 million.
The welfare check was conducted at the home she’s lived in for years in Thousand Oaks.
The incident highlights the concern fans have for Britney’s well-being. While it seems that Britney was fine and this was a false alarm, it is important for celebrities, especially those who have a large and dedicated fan base, to be mindful of the way their actions can be interpreted and to be responsive to fans’ concerns.
Spears, who is known for her dynamic performances and chart-topping hits, further solidified her new identity by changing her name on her Instagram profile.
The 41-year-old singer, who has been in the public eye for decades, has always been known for her bold and daring choices. Her fans are excited to see what the future holds for the artist now known as River Red.
