I wanted to say hi, because things that are being said have just gotten out of control!!! Wow!!! 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... 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! 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 ❤️❤️❤️

She continued: "Don’t worry I’ll be back very soon."

Spears explained in the caption that she felt compelled to speak out because "things that are being said have just gotten out of control!"

Last month, Spears had said she was taking some "me time."

"Wow! There’s rumors, death threats to my family and my team, and just so many things crazy things being said," she wrote. "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."

Spears didn't directly address the speculation, but did promise her fans that she's "doing what’s best at this moment" for herself.

"You may not know this about me, but I am strong, and stand up for what I want!" she wrote. "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."
