Britney Spears‘ husband has revealed the heartbreaking reason why the pop star quit Instagram

The ‘Toxic’ singer, 41, is one of the most successful female artists of the 21st century. She’s behind hit songs such as ‘Oops… I Did It Again’, ‘Gimme More’, and ‘Womanizer’.

Spears’s father Jamie took control of her personal life, financial affairs and medical decisions back in 2008.

The ‘Toxic’ artist wasn’t released from her conservatorship until November 2021.

Since its termination, Spears has been a prominent figure on Instagram, where she frequently shares messages and racy photos with her 41.6 million followers.

However, she recently left fans concerned as she deactivated her Instagram account.

Amid the scrutiny, Spears’ new husband, actor and model Sam Asghari, 28, has spoken out. 

He’s explained that his wife has found the app to be ‘traumatising’ and that fans have become ‘overprotective’ with their worries.

Taking to the app, Asghari said: “Social media can be traumatising. Sometimes it’s good to take a break.

“She [Spears] has her voice and is a free woman.

“I have respect for her privacy and I protect it at all times.”

He added: “Thank you to all of her protective fans.

“Out of respect for her privacy, I don’t post her 24/7. I ask for permission if I ever do.”

Asghari then went on to acknowledge that due to his work, he has to attend a number of public events with his wife.

He appreciates that Spears isn’t always comfortable with this, due to being in the spotlight from a young age.

Asghari added: “I’ve always respected and supported her privacy with everything I’ve had. I ask of you supportive and protective fans to do the same.

“Sometimes being overprotective can cause more stress and damage.”

Asghari’s comments come after fans took to social media and shared their concerns.

One fan wrote:​​ “Britney Spears’ Instagram account has been deactivated again, something is seriously off and I’m beyond worried for her.

“I hope to god she is OK.”

Another added: “She’s been through so much and I don’t think she’s well mentally. 

“I pray that she takes time away from social media and hers the help she needs and deserves.”

While a third said: “OK what’s the deal with Britney Spears’ Instagram now? 

“Does anyone have the lowdown on her because I’m actually worried for her.

“If something doesn’t seem right, it’s usually because it isn’t…”

It comes shortly after Spears took to Instagram and opened up about her relationship with her sons, and said a ‘part of her died’ after they stopped seeing her.

She posted: “Since they’ve been gone, I’ve honestly felt like a huge part of me has died.

“Like literally, I have no purpose anymore. They were my joy, they were my everything. I looked forward to seeing them.

“That was what I lived for.”

Spears’ two sons, Sean Preston Federline, 17, and Jayden James Federline, 16, have been publically critical of the pop star’s social media activity, especially in regard to racy images.

However, she responded to this by saying that her Instagram posts ‘help’ her.

At the time, Spears commented: “If it’s the dumbest thing in the world that I do is share on my Instagram my thoughts, if it’s dumb, so be it, because I honestly feel like it helps me.”

At the time of writing, Spears’ Instagram account now appears to have been reactivated.
