Britney Spears accused Alyssa Milano of “bullying” after an incident which involved police coming to her house at the request of fans.
It started back in December when Milano responded to a video Spears had posted to Instagram. “Someone please go check on Britney Spears,” the “Brazen” actress posted in a tweet on December 21.
Now the pop singer is responding to the message via her Instagram account. On Tuesday night, Spears posted a screenshot of the tweet and shared her thoughts on it with more than 41 million of her followers.
“It saddens me to see things about me from people who don’t know me!!! This definitely feels like a form of bullying,” Spears wrote in her Instagram story, per Yahoo. “Ladies, we are supposed to be rooting for one another not pulling one another down!”
A rep for Milano told TMZ that the actress reached out to Spears privately Wednesday to apologize after she saw the Instagram story.
There’s a good chance the “Toxic” singer is feeling sensitive following the incident which inspired police to visit her home late at night after concerned fans kept calling them. They were allegedly worried about Spears deactivating her Instagram account, which she has done several times in the past.
“Police were called to my home based on some prank phone calls. I love and adore my fans but this time things went a little too far and my privacy was invaded,” the singer shared on Instagram. “The police never entered my home and when they came to my gate they quickly realized there was no issue and left immediately.”
Spears followed up with an explanation as to why she deactivated her social media account in the first place, which has to do with fan comments similar to Milano’s.
“I shut down my Instagram because there were too many people saying I looked like an idiot dancing and that I looked crazy,” Spears shared upon her return.
“Yes I took my Instagram down and now it’s back up because I can!!!” she said in a later update, which has since been deleted.
“Since everyone thinks they know my story. THINK AGAIN,” she continued. “It is what it is … nope I’m not having a breakdown … I am who I am and moving forward in my life. I have never felt better!!!”
