Britney Spears has reportedly denied her makeup artist’s claims that she doesn’t write her Instagram captions herself.
The 39-year-old’s social media feed has come under fire again following a recent post in which the pop star said she cried for two weeks after watching the documentary Framing Britney Spears.
Britney wrote: My life has always been very speculative… observed… and basically judged my whole life! !! For my sanity, I need to dance every night of my life at @iamstevent to feel wild, human and alive !!!! I’ve spoken for people my whole life !!!!. It takes a lot of strength to entrust my vulnerability to the universe, because I am always so condemned….. insulted and embarrassed by the media… and I still am to this day!!!!
While the world continues to change and life goes on, we are still as vulnerable and sensitive as the people !!!!. I haven’t seen the documentary, but from what I saw, I was disturbed by the light they put me in….. I’ve been crying for two weeks and now …… I still cry sometimes!!!! [sic]
Fans assumed Britney did not write the caption herself and blamed her social media manager, Cassie Peetree, for the text.
Britney’s former make-up artist Billy Brassfield said at the time: The content is hers, but… the words aren’t what she feels.

Brasfield, who worked with Britney in 2012 and 2013, told Page Six: I knew right away it wasn’t her. I texted her about it and she replied last night.
What was frustrating [about the news] was that it was basically a story that condemned her fans, the Free Britney movement and people who are now very aware of what’s going on.
But the Toxic singer reportedly told TMZ that she never spoke to Billy.
The publication quotes Britney as saying: No, I’m not talking to him at all. I write my own posts. I don’t know who he’s talking to, but I’m not talking to Billy B.
The announcement comes after a source told TMZ that Britney’s social media manager had nothing to do with her posting about the documentary.
Cassie did not make up Britney’s statement about the Hulu documentary, and she was not even aware of Britney’s plans to speak out before the IG post was published, according to the insider.
Britney wrote the caption herself, and it was posted the day she wrote it.
Framing Britney Spears looked at Britney’s media treatment as a teenager, before going into the details of the conservative period she has been going through since 2008.

The star’s lawyers have asked a judge to permanently remove Jamie Spears, Britney’s father, who oversees her personal and financial affairs, and to make Jodi Montgomery, a guardian, Britney’s sole guardian.
Britney’s lawyer previously told the court that she was afraid of her father and would not return to the stage as long as he controlled her life.
