The memorable footage of Britney Spears dancing while waving knives has stirred up a lot of emotions on the internet. Someone apparently decided that this was too much, as officers visited the singer's villa. The person concerned has already spoken out.

There is again a lot happening with Britney Spears, unfortunately in a not very positive context. Recent media reports have informed about the star's breakup with her husband, Sam Asghari, which both have now confirmed. It was said that one of the reasons for the split was the singer's suspicious fascination with knives, which reportedly made him fear for his life. Consequently, her latest Instagram video took everyone by surprise.

"Britney Spears is dancing with knives, and the whole world is worried. The police have been called."

A video has been posted on the celebrity's profile in which she dances with knives in her hands, waving them all around. Some claimed that it was purely her artistic vision, others bluntly indicated that due to Britney's breakup, she might have suffered a mental health decline. Ultimately, the latter party decided to respond, and officers appeared at her home.

As reported by Page Six, the police conducted a so-called "wellness check" at the singer's villa, a standard procedure intended to ensure that nothing threatens her health or life. Dean Worthy from the Ventura County Sheriff's Office reported that the call was handled by an officer who had previously visited the star's home. Interestingly, it turns out that the notification was not made by a worried fan, but by "someone close to Britney".

A person close to Britney saw a video of her waving knives. They thought her mental state was alarming and were worried for her well-being - was disclosed in a public statement quoted by the service. We usually do not respond to fan reports who believe something may be wrong, but we verified the case in the system, and it was a person who actually knows her.

Intervention of officers at Britney Spears' house. The star has spoken out

Ultimately, it was determined that Spears was not in danger and no intervention was necessary. As for the question regarding the second recording, which was released later and in which the singer has a bandage on her shoulder, the officer simply stated that he had no knowledge of the matter. Britney's management team did not decide to comment on the matter.

Finally, the person in question herself spoke up, assuring on Instagram that it was just an artistic provocation. She first commented on the confusion briefly, claiming that she is fine and simply... was inspired by Shakira.

Chill out with these knives, I'm just copying Shakira - she stated.

However, this did not convince everyone, so she also commented on the matter more broadly in a new post. She accompanied it with - you guessed it - a knife dance.

I know I scared some with my last post, but those are fake knives we rented from a shop in Los Angeles. They're not real. Nobody needs to worry or call the police. I just wanted to be like Shakira, who greatly inspired me. Kudos to women who are not afraid to take risks and push boundaries.

Did she calm you down?
