Britney Spears’ Rep Calls Instagram Comment Allegations ‘Absurd’
Representatives from Britney Spears' team are responding to allegations that they've been deleting positive comments from the singer's Instagram posts "to keep up the illusion that she needs help."
"We unequivocally deny the absurd allegations that we have promoted negative statements or deleted positive posts from Instagram and are considering appropriate action," a rep told Entertainment Tonight on Wednesday (June 19).
The statement comes after the Instagram account @absolutebritneycom shared a post accusing her team of deleting comments. "So Britney's team is deleting positive comments on her Instagram post and leaving negative ones to keep up the illusion that she needs help!" the post reads. "They were all so quick to remove all comments before but now all the sudden they are leaving all negative ones but removing positive ones! How much longer is this going to be?!? This has to be [a] human rights violation!!!! #FreeBritney"
The pop star's mom, Lynne Spears, replied with her agreement of the post. "I can’t believe u just posted this because I had a friend tell me the same thing! I posted something and tried to go back and find it and none of it is in order and I couldn’t find mine, which I JUST POSTED???" she wrote. "I know you are a true fan and love her so thank you for pointing this out because I have had others say the same."
It's been a tough few months for Britney, who recently admitted her father forced her into a treatment center and has been dealing with a legal battle over the conservatorship he has over her.
