Britney Spears is giving everyone a heads up – the paparazzi are super toxic, OK?!
After the 37-year-old was just trying to have a relaxing vacay with BF Sam Asghari in Miami, paparazzi photos surfaced of Britney on the beach that she claims are totally fake.
Over the weekend, Britney took to her Instagram stories (oops, she did it again) and blasted the photo agency for allegedly editing her bikini photos.
"Hello, and please don’t judge me, I look haggard right now," she began, adding in the caption that she just got off a jet ski.
"But my question to all of you is, a lot of fans in our world today, they always are subject to really criticize people and say that the pictures and videos that they’re posting are either not on time or they’re fake."
"But no one ever really asks, ‘Are the paparazzi pictures fake, and do the paparazzi people do stuff to the pictures and is the news really real?’"
"I look like I’m 40 pounds bigger [in the pics] than I am today," she explained.
"This is how I am right now and I’m skinny as a needle."
"You tell me, what is real?" the singer asked her followers.
She uploaded her theory shortly after paparazzi spotted and photographed Spears and Asghari holding hands and soaking up the sun before hitting the water.
The blonde strutted a light coverup over her bikini while her personal trainer beau went shirtless.
They also snapped pics of Asghari helping a struggling Spears onto a boat after the two had some fun diving into the water, according to Entertainment Tonight.
Britney has definitely been taking advantage of Instagram lately — especially when it comes to the Stories feature where she can share her thoughts and opinions immediately.
Last month, Spears also took to her IG Stories to set the record straight about the #FreeBritney movement, which was legal drama over her conservatorship case and that her team took over her social media accounts.
"For those of you who don’t think I post my own videos, I did this video yesterday," she said in the video at the time.
"So, you’re wrong. But I hope you like it."
A source told ET that when it comes to Britney’s Instagram platform, Britney’s situation "hasn’t changed."
"When she wants to post a video, she posts a video, despite advice from family and friends," said the source.
"Of course, sometimes her people are concerned about how she comes across in her videos, but right now Britney would like to exercise her right to do whatever she pleases."
And we think that is not only fair but also totally entertaining to us as viewers, so please — share away!
Once the photo agency (MEGA) got word of Britney’s latest rant that accused them of editing her bikini pics, they released a statement:
"We think Britney looks great and it’s ludicrous to suggest the photos or video were altered in any way," they wrote. "They were not."
"We shot thousands of photos of her over the weekend and are very happy to let her see the original files if she so wishes."
"It was good to see her happy and having fun and we wish her well," the statement concluded.
While we just don’t know who to believe here (as this is obviously a case for the FBI) — I think we can all agree that it’s good to see Britney in good spirits once again.
And she is beautiful – no matter what size she is or what size someone tries to make her!
