Fans of Britney Spears are wondering why she deleted her Instagram account just days after getting married to Sam Asghari. The 40-year-old pop artist is a regular Instagram user, but she has disabled her profile, sparking a flood of conspiracy theories from her devoted followers.
Some speculate that family conflict is at work, while others believe she is simply taking a break from social media to enjoy her honeymoon.
Spears’ family conflict was resurrected before she deleted her account when she failed to invite her mother Lynne Spears, father Jamie Spears, and sister Jamie-Lynn Spears to her wedding.
Earlier reports suggested that Spears’ brother, Bryan Spears, had been invited to the wedding, but the singer rejected this in a now-deleted post, saying: “I never asked you to my wedding… Bryan, F**K YOURSELF.”
In another deleted message, the singer stated that she “can’t stand most alcohol” and chastised her family for drug testing her every week during her conservatorship.
The pop star was placed on a psychiatric hold at the beginning of 2008, resulting in her contentious conservatorship, in which her personal and financial decisions were controlled by outsiders for over 14 years before being dissolved late last year.
Her security crew was also reportedly sacked after her ex-husband Jason Alexander broke into her home on the day of her wedding.
In an unexpected decision, the singer opted to disappear from Instagram, as she appeared to have disabled or erased her account without warning, leaving her followers to wonder what went wrong. According to US Weekly, a source told the publication that the choice was her own, and that “Britney chose to disable her own Instagram.” Despite the fact that no explanation was given.
The singer recently made headlines for posting a series of naked images on her Instagram account, in which she expressed her desire to be rebellious and free in her words. Britney‘s Instagram hiatus comes months after she became embroiled in a public spat with her sister Jamie Lynn Spears, who published her autobiography, Things I Should Have Said, earlier this year.
Britney removed her profile after clearing the air with her brother Byran. According to reports, Bryan was the only member of her family to receive an invitation to the wedding, but he was unable to attend because his daughter graduated from elementary school. Britney soon responded, “You were never invited to my wedding, so why even respond???” “Do you honestly think I want my brother there who has been telling me no to a Jack and coke for four years?” she wrote on Instagram.
Bryan’s girlfriend reportedly said he “felt bad” about skipping the wedding, but Britney has two words for him. “And I’m thinking about forcing myself to drink Jack tonight… ‘F*** YOU!!!’ look up at the moon.” She continued. “I know you’re family, and certainly, blood flows deep, but no one in my family would do what you did to me.”
Then those who did receive an invitation to the wedding? Many members of Sam Asghari‘s family were there, including his sisters. Britney’s children and family were not present, but she was surrounded by celebrity pals such as Paris Hilton, Madonna, Selena Gomez, Donatella Versace, and Drew Barrymore.
