People think Britney’s latest Maui beach post is fake - here’s why

Days after delivering a devastating testimony regarding the reality of her conservatorship, Britney Spears and boyfriend Sam Asghari journeyed to Maui for some much-deserved downtime.

Prior to actually being spotted on the island, Asghari shared videos of the pair on a private jet, presumably en route to paradise, followed by footage of the couple working out together in what appears to be a hotel gym. Spears and Asghari were then photographed sun-bathing by the pool.

Spears then took to Instagram to document the vacation from her perspective.

However, some #FreeBritney activists are concerned that the singer’s latest post is fake — or at least repurposed — as Spears is seemingly wearing the same bikini and hat as she was in a post circa September 2020.

What’s more, many Spears fans assert that the singer has no control over her social media, which would further solidify the theory that her “team” shared the Maui pictures to make it seem as though everything was fine following her statement.

However Spears’ social media manager, Cassie Petrey, has previously addressed the rumours regarding Spears’ Instagram, insisting that Spears does indeed control the content posted to her account.

“Britney creates her own posts and write her own captions for Instagram,” she said. “She finds the google images, Pinterest images, quotes, memes, and everything else herself. She generally edits the videos herself. 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 that way. Then she sees it and decides if she wants to post it or not.”

“She has stated many times that she creates the posts, 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 continued. “She has a team to help strategies, like any major celebrity generally does at this point in her carer. Almost every person has a social media team - just like they have a manager, publicist, record label, etc.”

“I was not hired by Britney via Lou Taylor, and I don’t know Anastasia Brown,” Petrey reiterated, going onto address the conservatorship.

“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?”

However, the Daily Mail later published photos of Spears in said red bikini on her current trip — on June 29 — meaning she simply is wearing the same swim suit.

So it appears as though Britney Spears is indeed on vacation in Maui, for which we are grateful. She surely deserves it!
