There have been many rumors floating around about Britney Spears after she reportedly had a breakdown a few weeks back, but Britney has decided to address them all in a video posted to Instagram.

"I wanted to say hi, because things that are being said have just gotten out of control!!! " the post's caption begins.

"There’s rumors, death threats to my family and my team, and just so many things crazy things being said. 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..." she continued, calling out her former manager, Lufti.

She added "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 🌸🌸🌸 You may not know this about me, but I am strong, and stand up for what I want!"

Before concluding:

"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 the accompanying video she tells fans that her family is "going through a lot of stress" and that "all is well" and promised to return soon.
