Britney Spears begs her followers to ‘respect my privacy’ after obsessive fans ‘went too far’ and called the POLICE for a welfare check after she deleted Instagram
Britney Spears sounded as if she had had enough of overzealous fans in a statement she posted Thursday in response to a recent fan-triggered visit by the police.
The 41-year-old pop icon — who recently shut down her Instagram page once again — wrote on Twitter about her struggles maintaining her privacy and complained that she felt like she was being ‘gaslit’ and ‘bullied.’
Although she stressed that police never ‘entered’ her house and stayed at her gate, she said the situation went ‘a little too far.’
Fans of the singer have lately expressed even more concern than usual after she was seen apparently having a ‘manic’ meltdown at a restaurant earlier this month with her husband Sam Asghari, 28.

In contrast with her usual bubbly Instagram posts, Spears’ Twitter statement was unusually sober and reserved.
‘As everyone knows the police were called to my home based on some prank phone calls,’ she began. ‘I love and adore my fans this time things went a little too far and my privacy was invaded.
She clarified that, ‘The police never entered my home,’ and they apparently left shortly after arriving at her gate after finding ‘no issue.’
But the run-in with law enforcement over the ‘prank phone calls’ still left her feeling accosted.
‘This felt like I was being gaslit and bullied once the incident made it to the news and being portrayed once again in a poor and unfair light by the media,’ she continued.
