Britney Spears Breaks Her Silence About Chilling Knives Video After Police Visit Her Home
Earlier this week, we reported that fans were concerned about the singer Britney Spears after she posted a disturbing video of herself dancing with knives while wearing very little clothing. Now, Spears has broken her silence to explain this video after police performed a welfare check on her at her home.

Spears Doubles Down On Knives
Spears, 41, took to Instagram once again overnight to post another video of her dancing with knives, this time while wearing a white cropped top and pink bikini bottoms.
“I know I spooked everyone with the last post, but these are fake knives that my team rented from Hand Prop shop in LA,” Spears explained. “These are not real knives. No one needs to worry or call the police.”
“I’m trying to imitate one of my favorite performers Shakira … a performance I was inspired by !!!” she added. “Cheers to us bad girls who aren’t afraid to push boundaries and take risks.”

Police Called To Spears’ Home
This came after Fox News reported that the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department conducted a welfare check at Spears’ home in California on Wednesday after the original knives video went up. Officers ultimately cleared the call without incident after establishing from two independent sources that Spears was not in any danger physically or emotionally.
Concern for Spears’ wellbeing was first flagged to the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department by a member of the LAPD Smart Team, which deals with mental health calls.

Spears had captioned the initial dancing video by writing, “I started playing in the kitchen with knives today !!! Don’t worry they are NOT real knives !!!! Halloween is soon.”
However, fans were skeptical about this, as the knives made the typical clanking sound when Spears hit them together.
“Lighten up about the knives I’m copying Shakira !!!” she tried to clarify.

Police Previously Called To Spears’ Home
This isn’t the first time this year that Spears has had police come to her home to check on her. Back in January, she lashed out at her fans for invading her privacy after police were called to her home.
“As everyone knows the police were called to my home based on some prank phone calls,” she said. “I love and adore my fans but this time things went a little too far and my privacy was invaded.”
Spears went on to claim that police never entered her house and instead “left immediately” after they realized there was “no issue” upon arrival.
“This felt like I was being gaslit and bullied once the incident made it to the news and being portrayed once again in a poor and unfair light by the media,” she lamented.

This also comes one month after Spears announced that she is divorcing her estranged husband Sam Asghari following six years with him and less than one year of marriage.
“6 years is a long time to be with someone so, I’m a little shocked but … I’m not here to explain why because its [sic] honestly nobody’s business !!!” she wrote on Instagram on August 18. “But, I couldn’t take the pain anymore honestly!!! In some sort of telepathic way I have been receiving so many messages that melt my heart from friends and I thank you !!!”
UPDATE: Britney Spears and Sam Asghari’s prenup leaves him with no payout for their divorce and also prevents him from getting any type of spousal support. pic.twitter.com/6MS9JPfGrF

It has since been reported that members of Spears’ inner circle are concerned about her mental health.
“Some people are of the opinion that Britney’s on a dangerous downward spiral,” a source told US Weekly last month. “And the stuff she’s been [doing] hasn’t done much to dampen that worry. The concern for Britney’s welfare right now is off the charts.”
Whether the knives were real or fake, it’s clear that Spears is going through a very difficult time right now. Please join us in saying a prayer for her.
