"I wanted to say hi, because things that are being said have just gotten out of control!!! Wow!!!"
"There’s rumors, death threats to my family and my team, and just so many things crazy things being said."
She continued, "I am trying to take a moment for myself, but everything that’s happening is just making it harder for me. Don’t believe everything you read and hear."
"These fake emails everywhere were crafted by Sam Lutfi years ago... I did not write them. He was pretending to be me and communicating with my team with a fake email address. My situation is unique, but I promise I’m doing what’s best at this moment 🌸🌸🌸 "
Adding, "You may not know this about me, but I am strong, and stand up for what I want! Your love and dedication is amazing, but what I need right now is a little bit of privacy to deal with all the hard things that life is throwing my way. If you could do that, I would be forever grateful. Love you ❤️❤️❤️"
In April, Britany confirmed she needed help.
The singer took to Instagram to confirm that following her indefinite hiatus back in January - she is now seeking professional medical help to help her focus on her "me time."
She posted a picture of a quote which read": “Fall in love with taking care of yourself, mind, body, spirit.”
The quote was teamed up with the caption: “We all need to take time for a little ‘me time.’ :)”
A source close to the family told PEOPLE that “Britney just needed to focus on herself” as she cares for her father Jamie after his “life-threatening” colon rupture.
“Her dad being sick has taken a toll on her,” the source explained.
“He nearly died and actually had another surgery a few weeks ago. He’s not doing well. They’re so close and it has been a lot. There is nothing dramatic going on with her — she just realized she needs to make sure to take time to care for herself.”
