Britney SpearsFans believed something was seriously wrong with the singer after her Instagram account disappeared… they called the police to her home to see if she was in any danger.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that Britney deleted her Instagram account — something she’s done many times — sometime in the past 12 hours. For whatever reason, fans became alarmed, believing the deleted account meant Britney was in trouble… and called the Ventura Co. Sheriff’s Office.
Sheriff’s office deputies then went to Britney’s home and determined that there was no reason to believe she was in any danger. It’s unclear if they spoke to Britney directly, or if someone else assured them she was fine.
The incident comes less than two weeks after Britney was spotted at a local restaurant, which witnesses tell us about she became ‘manic’, frustrate her husband, Sam Asghari, to the point of getting up and leaving. Video obtained by TMZ showed Spears babbling nonsense at the table.
