Britney Spears‘ social media manager is trying to squash a rumor that the singer doesn’t have access to her own Instagram account.
Cassie Petrey. who helps manage Britney’s accounts, posted a lengthy statement on her IG. She wrote, “First and foremost, I absolutely adore the Britney Spears fan base. They are incredible, loyal, and passionate about her. I admire them. I know everything they do and say is because they truly love her. Which is why it’s been easy for me to overlook some of the nasty comments that have been thrown my way over the years – because I know deep down it’s all out of love for one of the greatest pop stars of all time.”
Cassie added, “However, there are a lot of inaccurate theories out there about how Britney Spears’ social media operates, and I want to give as much information as I can without violating her privacy or mine.”
Cassie claims, “Britney creates her own posts and writes her own captions for Instagram. She finds the google images, Pinterest images, quotes, memes, and everything else herself.”
She tried to explain, “Nobody is suggesting any of that stuff to her. She generally edits the videos herself. “
Further, “If a video she sends in is edited by her social media team, it’s because she gave specific instructions and asked for it to be edited that way. Then she sees it and decides if she wants to post it or not.”
Cassie claims Britney, “has stated many times that she creates the post, but people continue to believe conspiracy theories over what Britney says over and over again. Britney is not “asking for help” or leaving secret messages in her social media. She is literally just living her life and trying to have fun on Instagram.”
She added, “She has a team to help strategize like any major celebrity generally does at this point in their career. Almost every person has a social media team – just like they have a manager, publicist, record label, etc.”
Cassie ended, “I was not hired by Britney via Lou Taylor, and I don’t know Anastasia Brown. That’s not how I met Britney and her team. This is another example of assumptions being made rather than understanding true facts. Crowdbooster is a data tool, not a bot interacting with people. Again, an assumption being made with no true facts.”
She said, “I have never been to Hawaii with Britney Spears, and didn’t take any photos on her trips. I have my own life, and I’m perfectly capable of having a vacation without a client. Britney has never paid for me to go on any vacation with her.”
Britney’s employee clarified, “My work on Britney’s social media does not involve her conservatorship in any way. That’s a court and lawyer thing. Since when do digital marketing people have anything to do with things that courts and lawyers handle.”
As The Blast previously reported, many Britney fans believe she has no access to her phones and her team make posts on her behalf. Cassie seems to be trying to end that conversation.
