Pop star Britney Spears is having a tough year and took to Instagram to check that her fans have not forgotten about her - despite her not dropping any new music in a minute.

"I hope y'all haven't forgotten about me!!! I'm taking this transition in my life to focus on what I really want ... I've been working nonstop, well, since I was 8 years old in the business. Sometimes it's good to stop and reflect !!!! Miss you all ... I really do have the best fans in the world !!! #fbf" she wrote in the caption where she also shared several pictures of her performing on stage.

Britney has had a number of personal issues this year. She's first been dealing with her father Jamie's declining health. Then her ex-husband Kevin Federline filed a restraining order against her father over an alleged incident of abuse involving their 14-year-old, Sean Preston. Jamie was eventually cleared of abuse.

The state of the star's mental health has been widely speculated as well, but Brit wants her fans to know that she's still got it.

Does she?
