The Britney Spears army is not buying that the pop star’s latest post.
On Thursday, Spears, 37, shared a video of herself dancing to Michael and Janet Jackson’s “Scream” with the caption, “Me and Michael.”
The post comes less than 24 hours after Spears’ longtime manager Larry Rudolph implied that the “Toxic” singer may never perform again. He later clarified Spears simply hasn’t called him in months to work, adding that he is “not sure if or when she will ever want to work again.”
In the comments section, fans pointed out similarities between the recent video and a second video Spears shared in March 2018, in which she was wearing the exact same outfit, including a yellow sports bra, plaid shorts, orange sneakers and a yellow wrist band.
Spears superfan Chris Crocker, who is known for his “Leave Britney Alone!” YouTube video, commented, “This video is from 2018. Im not buying that Britney posted this.”
Another wrote, “This isnt fooling us… we know that this isnt recent and we know comments that say that are being deleted.”
A rep for Spears could not be reached for comment.
Ever since the singer checked herself into a mental health facility in April to cope with her father’s illness, fans speculated that she was being forced to go to treatment and launched the social media campaign #FreeBritney.
Spears addressed the conspiracy theories in an Instagram video, saying, I wanted to say hi, because things that are being said have just gotten out of control!!! Wow!!!&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.
On May 10, the pop star appeared in court over her conservatorship, which has given her father Jamie Spears control over many aspects of her life for 11 years.
