Britney Spears Feels 'Weak' On New Fasting Diet

Earlier this week, the "Oops... I Did It Again" singer admitted that she has started incorporating intermittent fasting into her diet, which usually means an individual restricts their eating window to a set time period. It is not clear how long Britney is fasting before, but she did say that it makes her feel too "weak to even think about shooting for Instagram right now."

"I have started intermittened [sic] fasting this week !!! It can make you feel weak for a few days but then you get a natural high from all the toxins being release [sic] … I actually feel a little too tiny and weak to even think about shooting for Instagram right now !!!" she wrote in the caption, although she did praise the spiritual benefits that she has been receiving from the fast.

I’ve been reading to stay inspired ... have a good weekend, my friends !!!"

Britney Gives Her Response When People Start 'Talking S---'

“When people say stop talking s--- … my response is … sorry I don’t speak English ... You want a cigarette ???” Britney wrote in the caption of another Instagram post.

Fans aren't sure if the post is directed at her ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake or her ex-husband Sam Asghari, who she seemed to call out recently.

Does Britney Spears Have Beef With Her Ex Sam Asghari?

In August 2023, Britney split with her ex-husband, Sam Asghari. The two tied the knot in June 2022 after meeting on the set of her "Slumber Party" music video in 2016. Unfortunately, it seems that their relationship soured after her controversial 13-year conservatorship ended in November 2021, leading the "Special Ops: Lioness" actor to file for divorce in August 2023.

In another recent Instagram post shared ahead of her fasting admission, Britney admitted that she found it suspicious that her phone went missing the same month that she and her ex-husband split up.

“True story !!! I had a dinner date with this friend and the next day my glitter case phone which had everything in it from 6 years ago went missing !!!" she explained. "Btw I’ve never lost a phone before in my life !!! I always found it !!! Anyway for some reason the night before I met this person I purposely took pictures of my phones together !!! It was like I knew subconsciously it was gonna get stolen !!! And darn it … it’s been gone for 8 months now !!!"

"I had it from back in 2016 and that phone had so many pics of my kids and everything !!! Just to think some a--hole has my little phone right now !!! Same month that me and my ex split !!! Things that make you go HMMMMMM !!!” she added.

Since she and Sam met in 2016, and the phone went missing the same month that she and Sam split, fans can't help but wonder what really happened to Britney's phone.
