Since Britney Spears checked herself into a 30-day treatment program in March, her journey has been questioned by some fans who are concerned for the singer's well-being. Allegations in a "special emergency episode" of the fan podcast Britney's Gram claimed that the pop princess is being held in a mental health facility against her will. As a result, the #FreeBritney hashtag emerged and a group of fans protested for her release in West Hollywood on Monday.
On Tuesday (April 23), Spears hopped on Instagram to clear the air. "Hi guys, just checking in with all of you who are concerned about me," she said in the quick selfie video. "All is well. My family has been going through a lot of stress and anxiety lately, so I just needed time to deal. But don’t worry, I’ll be back very soon."
