American Singer Britney Spears has deleted her Instagram page. The reasons for this bold step is unknown, but there have been speculations linked to her engagement to Sam Asghari.
PageSix reports that the music star took down her page over her 16 years conservatorship crisis.
The source also went on to say that the “Overprotected” pop star is taking some time away from social media “in light of the successful path that she’s been on and continues to be on [following] the news of [her engagement].”
“She’s happy and in a great place,” the source said, adding, “and silence can be a powerful thing and a powerful message. This was her decision,” it concluded.
Spears, 39, got engaged to her boyfriend of 5 years Sam Asghari at the beginning of the week. Announcing the engagement, she flaunted the 4 crats gold rock Sam gave her as he popped the question.
Sam Asghari is Britney’s third spouse. She had a relationship with Jason Allen Alexander, her childhood friend, in 2004. The relationship came to an end the same year and then she went ahead to marry Kevin Federline in 2004, and later got divorced in 2007.
Spears has two children, Sean Preston Federline and Jayden James Federline from her previous marriage with Kevin Federline.
Britney Spears was born on 2 December 1981 in McComb, Mississippi. She spent most of her childhood in Kentwood, Louisiana alongside her brother, Bryan and sister Jamie Lynn.
Her music career began after she appeared in stage productions and television series.
She signed with Jive Records in 1997 at age 15. Her first two studio albums, certified diamond in the US, Baby One More Time (1999) and Oops!… I Did It Again (2000) were global successes and became two of the best-selling albums of all time, along with making her the best-selling teenage artist of all time.
The former’s title track was named the greatest debut single of all time by Rolling Stone in 2020 and the latter held a 15-year record for fastest-selling album by a female artist in the United States with first-week sales of over 1.3 million copies.
Spears adopted more provocative themes and aesthetics for her next two studio albums, Britney (2001) and In the Zone (2003), and made her feature film debut in a starring role in Crossroads (2002).
She became the executive producer of her fifth studio album Blackout (2007), which is often critically referred to as her best work.
