Britney Spears’ friends and family are still saying that she desperately needs help, following reports of a planned intervention that never came to be earlier this week. They claimed Spears, 41, has been struggling with her mental health and substance abuse. As one source in regular contact with Britney told the publication, “I’m afraid she’s gonna die.”
Since the intervention didn’t happen, sources told gossip website TMZ that decision is life-threatening to the singer. One source said, “The intervention was long overdue. She is very much a danger to herself and those around her. It’s a ticking time bomb. Thank god somebody finally took some steps to do something about it.”
Another source says, “I worry about waking up in the morning and feeling like I’m going to get a horrible phone call.” A third source says, “This is 2008 all over again. There is serious fear she is either going to die or kill someone. She is abusing caffeine, Adderall, and anything she can get her hands on. She is not taking her medication, which is essential to stabilize her mood and is unknowingly trying to self-medicate with other substances, which is exacerbating her mental illness.”
One more source added, “She has unbelievable untreated trauma that with the help of therapists and specialists could put her in a much better place. An intervention is essential to make that happen.”
Last night, Spears took to Instagram to directly address the intervention rumors with a photo that read: “A state of gratitude will shift you to a higher frequency.” She paired that with the caption: “It makes me sick to my stomach that it’s even legal for people to make up stories that I almost died … I mean at some point enough is enough !!! I’m probably going to have to stop posting on Instagram because even though I enjoy doing it, there’s obviously a lot of people who don’t wish me well !!! I’m honestly not surprised at all … Again doing the best I can !!!”
The singer made it a point to remind people that her “conservatorship has been over for almost a year … No folks, it’s not 2007 … it’s 2023 and I’m making my first homemade lasagna at home !!! I finally got my fireplace to work in my living room !!! As my hubby says it best: don’t believe everything you read !!! All that love right back at ya !!!”
Asghari, 28, shared a similar message in support of his wife amid the rumors. “An intervention did not occur. My wife is in full control of her life and will continue to make all decisions involving her care regardless of circumstances. Speculation on her health is inappropriate and should end immediately,” he told Access Hollywood in a statement.
