The REAL reason why Britney Spears has deactivated her Instagram account

Britney Spears sparked panic when she deleted her Instagram account days after announcing her engagement to Sam Asghari.

Fans feared that something had happened to the Circus hit-maker, 39, who is in the middle of a highly-publicised battle to end her 13-year conservatorship.

Taking to Twitter to clarify the situation, Britney assured that she was just taking a “break” so had temporarily deactivated her account.

Writing on the micro-blogging site, she said: “Don’t worry folks... just taking a little break from social media to celebrate my engagement!!!! I’ll be back soon.”
