Concerned Britney Spears fans reached out to the police to perform a home visit after she deleted her Instagram account once again, it has been claimed.
After withdrawing from social media this week after deciding to change her name to River Red, the Toxic singer caused some concern for her safety.
According to reports, some followers of the 41-year-old were alarmed by his departure and contacted law enforcement as a result.
They allegedly got in touch with the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office, and deputies were sent to the two-parent mother’s house to see if she was alright.
TMZ reports that officers determined that she was not in any danger – but it is unclear whether they spoke to her directly, or someone else.
It comes after Spears claimed she made a big life decision and changed her name to River Red in a cryptic Instagram post shared last week.
Announcing her supposed name change, Spears wrote on Friday: ‘A bright one … easy does it !!! Thank you, childhood friend, I found my ball … don’t underestimate the power of purity !!!
‘I see right through it all … it has liquid and is wet … it’s playful and has mass !!! I changed my name to River Red !!! Yet the fire is where it illuminates … to stare at it and jump right in with no fear at all !!!! S**t. Now I have to find my FORK!!! [sic]’
The hitmaker also recently made headlines for what was deemed a drunken outburst in a restaurant in Los Angeles.
The Baby One More Time star and her husband, Sam Asghari, went out for a quiet dinner earlier this month, with TMZ later claiming that her beau, 28, became ‘visibly upset’ and ‘abruptly stood up and stormed out the door’.
The outlet also alleged that Spears caused a scene at the establishment in Woodland Hills, California, after becoming distressed when people took photos of her.
Eyewitnesses at the venue suggested the award-winning artist grew more and more upset and started ‘yelling’ and speaking in gibberish, a reaction that apparently prompted her spouse’s walk-out.
However, Asghari soon explained what actually went down, after previously encouraging fans not to believe everything they read with a cryptic social media post.
Asghari shared how his wife – whom he met on set of her music video in 2016 – feels ‘disrespected’ when she’s filmed while out and about.
Speaking calmly to paparazzi, the dancer was asked by a TMZ reporter: ‘How are you and Britney? The other night, we saw the video from the restaurant, what happened? Can you elaborate a little bit?’
The actor replied: ‘People get a little too excited to see my wife, so everybody’s filming and doing their thing, but you know how it is… fame comes with the territory and I went to get the car to get the hell out of there and people just thought I left!’
‘But that didn’t happen,’ he assured, rubbishing rumours of any kind of kick-off.
The mum-of-two last deleted her Instagram account in June, just one week after her and Asghari’s wedding.
‘It is what it is, man,’ he added.
