AceShowbiz - Britney Spears' husband has spoken up amid reports that have raised concern anew about her mental health. Sam Asghari has claimed that his wife is "in full control of her life" following rumors that her family and manager planned an intervention.
"An intervention did not occur," Sam told Access Hollywood on Friday, February 10, though he didn't confirm or deny that there was such plan. He added, "My wife is in full control of her life and will continue to make all decisions involving her care regardless of circumstances. Speculation on her health is inappropriate and should end immediately."
Britney herself has slammed the rumors. "It makes me sick to my stomach that it's even legal for people to make up stories that I almost died … I mean at some point enough is enough !!!" she wrote on Thursday. "I'm probably going to have to stop posting on Instagram because even though I enjoy doing it, there's obviously a lot of people who don't wish me well !!!"
"I'm honestly not surprised at all … Again doing the best I can !!! Again, the conservatorship has been over for almost a year … No folks, it's not 2007 … it's 2023 and I'm making my first homemade lasagna at home !!!" the pop star continued. "I finally got my fireplace to work in my living room !!! As my hubby says it best: don't believe everything you read !!! All that love right back at ya !!!"
In a separate post, the "Oops!... I Did It Again" songstress vented her frustration, "This week in the news it said that I almost died and that I have a manager and 'doctors' !!! I don't have a management team nor will I ever again in my life !!! I don't have 'medical doctors' !!! I take Prozac for depression and that's about it !!!"
"I'm an extremely boring person !!! It frustrates me to know that any news outlet would say any of this !!!" the 41-year-old singer further lamented. "It's worse than a cruel joke because people actually believe this stuff and all of my efforts in getting better with my little routine of prayer and therapy seems to not count for anything when people can say things that are incredibly wrong !!!"
Previous reports said Britney's manager rented a house in Los Angeles for around two months to take her there. While her husband Sam, her manager, an interventionist and doctors would be present to convince her she needed help, her parents Jamie and Lynne Spears and her kids were not involved.
However, the plan was scrapped because "Britney became somewhat aware of the plan." It was also unveiled that the singer met a doctor on Wednesday, February 8 and it "went well."
Some people, who were allegedly involved in the planned intervention, were left furious that the plan was scrapped, as they believe that it's necessary, according to TMZ. Meanwhile, a highly-placed source insisted that while an intervention is needed for her "severe" mental problems, or she should at least seeks help, they insist that Britney should not be locked back into another conservatorship.
"Nobody outside the very small conservatorship circle knows what Britney's medical status really is. If people knew Britney's actual medical status, I think it would reveal that her mental problems are far more severe than people realize," the source told Page Six. "Regardless of her mental condition, it isn't necessarily appropriate for her to be under a conservatorship. There are less harsh ways to handle it."
