Britney Spears calls welfare checks a ‘joke’ after authorities visited her home due to pop star sharing video of herself dancing with ‘fake’ knives: ‘I am getting an apology’
Britney Spears has called welfare checks a ‘joke’ not long after authorities visited her California home after the pop singer shared an Instagram video of herself dancing with knives that she has since claimed are ‘fake.’
The Toxic singer, 41, who shared a second clip of herself with the kitchen knives following the welfare check, uploaded a photo of a ballerina’s point shoes balancing on knives on stage alongside a lengthy caption on Saturday.
‘Is it a joke in the news again with welfare checks??? Come on America … we cooler than that, right???’ the performer began.
‘The officers came to my home and said they would not leave until they spoke to me as people do 4 minute performances with them,’ she penned, and adamantly added, ‘I am getting an apology.’
Spears then added, ‘I’ve been bullied in my home for so long now…ITS ENOUGH! Don’t talk about it, come on, let’s DO!!!’

Britney then wrote, ‘As my mom does the silent treatment when paps ask questions about her own daughter as if I’m in the wrong…nope it’s an old game.’
In conclusion, she further slammed authorities showing up at her home and typed, ‘People need to be responsible for their actions! It’s about power for cops.’
Earlier this week, TMZ reported that the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department had received a call on Wednesday from an individual ‘expressing concern’ over the singer’s latest social media posts – which included her performance with knives.
‘Out of an abundance of caution,’ officers made the decision to stop by Britney’s $7.4 million mansion for a welfare check.
Deputies were able to confirm that the pop singer was fine, and left her house soon afterwards. However, other sources told the outlet that, ‘several people called the cops after Britney posted the knife video…’
TMZ later reported that the call on Wednesday was actually made by the LAPD Smart Team – a mental evaluation unit. Authorities went to the star’s house after the caller assured them that she wasn’t just a fan.
Spears’ attorney reached out to the deputies after the welfare check, and authorities explained that they visited Britney’s home due to the caller knowing the singer.
The Baby One More Time hitmaker initially sparked concern when she shared a reel of herself dancing with two knives which she uploaded to her 42.1 million followers on Monday.
