Spears, raised in Kentwood, Louisiana, first showed off her vocal skills on the Star Search singing competition at ten years old in 1992. Following a stint on The Mickey Mouse Club, she signed a record deal with Jive Records in 1997. She began a highly successful career as a pop singer and performer with the release of the single “…Baby One More Time” in 1998. Spears achieved massive sales with albums like “Oops!… I Did It Again” and “Britney” before experiencing a series of personal and professional setbacks. She rebounded with the chart-topping “Femme Fatale” in 2011 and later enjoyed an extended residency at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.
In 2007, Spears made headlines for a very public breakdown, which led her to lose primary custody of her boys temporarily. She was also placed under a legal conservatorship in February 2008, giving her father, Jamie Spears, control over her finances and her person. Nearly a decade later, the Grammy winner addressed her battle with mental health during an interview.
Fans are concerned for her wellbeing
Britney Spears has always been on a roll when publishing eye-catching photos on social media lately. Recent bold nude Instagram photos showing a little too much skin have undoubtedly piqued Britney’s fans’ interest and sparked a huge online debate.
Britney Spears left fans wondering whether all is well with her after sharing a string of racy photos on Instagram, many of which appeared to be near-duplicates of each other. The first slideshow was captioned, “Photo dump of the last time I was in Mexico…” and included seven shots of the pop star standing completely naked, covering her modesty with her hands and a large heart emoji. The comments were filled with concerned fans wondering why Spears felt compelled to over-share so much.
Apart from her bizarre social media behavior, which has only intensified following the termination of her 13-year-long conservatorship in November 2021, Spears recently made headlines for a not-so-often incident.
A few months ago, Spears ran out of gas on the highway, and the police were called. Authorities found Spears unharmed in the backseat of a passerby’s vehicle. Her new husband, Sam Asgahri, came to pick her up once the police were able to move her car to safety.
In June 2021, Britney broke her silence about her 13-year conservatorship during a 20-minute address to the court full of bombshell revelations. She said she felt “enslaved” by her father, adding that she had been forced to take lithium against her will, among other things.
With the termination of her 13-year-long conservatorship in November of last year, Britney was granted back control of her finances, medical, and personal decisions after a highly publicized legal struggle. Her ardent admirers rallied behind her and helped launch the #FreeBritney movement, which was claimed to have helped her break free from her father, Jamie Spears.
