LOS ANGELES: Pop star Britney Spears has sought to reassure fans concerned for her mental health, saying she is “the happiest (she’s) ever been.”
Spears, 38, whose business and personal affairs have been controlled by her father since 2008, posted an Instagram video this week in which she addressed persistent reports that she was not doing well.
“I know that there have been a lot of comments and a lot of people saying a lot of different things about me, but I just want to let you guys know that I am fine,” the singer said in the video.
“I’m the happiest I’ve ever been in my life,” she added.
A small but vocal group of fans has launched a #FreeBritney campaign that seeks to end a court-ordered conservatorship that was put in place after the “Toxic” singer suffered a mental breakdown some 12 years ago.
