Here’s Why Britney Spears Deleted Her Instagram Account

Britney Spears has deleted her Instagram account but reassured her fans with the happy reason she’s taking a break from the social media app.

“Don’t worry folks … just taking a little break from social media to celebrate my engagement !!!!” she wrote on her Twitter account, which remains active. “I’ll be back soon.” Billboard can confirm that Spears chose to delete her Instagram account.

The pop superstar, 39, and 27-year-old personal trainer-turned-actor Sam Asghari announced their engagement Sunday, when Spears waved her sparkling engagement ring and kissed her now-fiancé on Instagram. They had been dating since 2016 when they met on the set of her “Slumber Party” music video. “I can’t f—ing believe it!!!!!!” she wrote on the post, using several ring emojis in her caption.

Spears, who’s been supporting the #FreeBritney movement in the midst of her ongoing battle to end the conservatorship that has controlled her life and career for the last 13 years, explained last month why she’s been freeing her body more and posting racy pictures on social media.

“I bet you’re wondering why I’d expose my body NOW,” she captioned a series of similar topless photos. “Well it’s because I was born into this world naked and I honestly feel like the weight of the world has been on my shoulders and it’s made me view myself that way !!!! I wanted to see myself in a lighter way … naked … like the way I was born and to me looking back at my pictures when I shoot it’s insane the psychology in seeing myself in my purest form gives evidence that pain … hurt … tears … and heavy burdens aren’t who I am. I am a woman …. a beautiful … sensitive woman who needs to look at myself in my purest form !!!”
