What’s going on with Britney again?
Britney Spears, 39, deactivated her Instagram account two days after her engagement became known and only a few days after her father agreed to step down as her guardian after 13 years.
“I grew up in a world where basically almost everything I did was controlled by someone else … I hope this message gets through to people who have been confused or manipulated by a system !!! “I’ve waited 13 years and I’m counting the days to my freedom”, she wrote one last post, deleted it immediately afterwards and then deleted her entire account, reports the celebrity magazine “Variety”.
That caused an uproar among their fans – and great concern! But the singer reassured her in a Twitter post shortly after: “Don’t worry, folks … I’m just taking a little break from social media to celebrate my engagement. I will be back soon.”
Whether a break is really the reason for this? Not clear! Celebrities like to use the (temporary) withdrawal from social media to arouse curiosity or prepare an important announcement. It may also have something to do with the new court hearing in the guardianship case against her father, Jamie Spears, which will take place on September 29th. Because some of her very frank Instagram photos might not go down so well with the judges.
The news of Spears’ engagement came just days after her father filed a petition to end her guardianship, signaling the beginning of the end of the pop star’s long litigation that lasted 13 years. In the court hearing in two weeks ‘time it could be decided whether Jamie Spears’ guardianship will be officially revoked.
