“Ouch” – the one word that many a fan left as Britney Spears took to Instagram to share the moment when she broke her foot. The 38-year-old made headlines approximately one week ago for being photographed by the paparazzi in a medical boot as she hit up a tanning appointment in L.A.
Since the paparazzi photos, boyfriend Sam Asghari has shared Britney winding up in the hospital for her injury – earlier today, the “Toxic” singer herself showed fans her cast as she thanked fans for their well-wishing letters.
A video has now been shared of the moment when the blonde broke her bone – and it’s loud. It’s also been sparking concern over in the comments section.
Britney’s video showed her inside a dance studio with wooden floors. The singer was dancing energetically, with all going well – at least at the start. Britney was twirling around and busting out her moves in a tiny yellow sports bra and and likewise tiny black shorts, also shaking her hips and jumping up and down.
Britney was barefoot. A wardrobe change did briefly see the star switch to a white crop top, but that wasn’t the focus. An awkward moment saw the singer lose her footing, with a very audible crack indicating the sound of a bone breaking.
Britney took to her caption to tell fans more, also apologizing for the loud crack that eventually saw her fans wince.
“I haven’t danced in six months so I was full throttle at this spot ???? !!!! And yes …. I know I’m barefoot …. don’t laugh but I grip the floor better that way !!!! PS you can hear where I broke my foot here ??? ….. sorry it’s kind of loud !!!!!” she wrote.
The eye-rolling emoji seemed to see Spears acknowledge the risks she’d taken by dancing barefoot.
Fans had definitely spotted the loud crack. Comments quickly came in, with the video itself also fast racking up views – over 900,000 had been clocked before the post was one hour old.
“BRITNEY THAT SNAP SOUND AT THE END zzz Omg your foot,” one fan wrote.
“OUCH that sound ???,” another added.
Kind replies also came in.
“It’s okay queen! You do t have to prove anything to us, we love you nonetheless! I’m glad you were doing something you love to do, but I hope you heal soon. Sending all of the positive thoughts and love?❤️?,” one fan said.
Britney’s social media was void of fresh content for weeks up until recently. Today has seen the star upload multiple videos – the video of Britney reading out her fan letters was followed by a bizarre one of her speaking in a British accent. Then came a bikini beach video from the star’s Hawaii travels in September 2019, alongside snaps of her outside a church.
“What the f**k is going with you? ?,” a fan wrote.
“Come back to reality Britney, we miss you this is madness ur doing tf,” another said.
“I used to love Britney … but I dont know if Its me but I find this kind of videos stranges and I dont like at all” was another comment.
Britney suffers from bipolar disorder, with her social media often sparking concern. The star’s mental health battles have seen her under her father’s conservatorship since 2008 – the lockdown is set to continue for some months.
