What is going on with Britney Spears, people? Spears has taken to social media to address concerns over her well-being after an ambulance was called to the West Hollywood hotel where she was staying.

Multiple sources reported that on Friday (May. 03, 2024), Spears was seen barefoot outside the Chateau Marmont after an ambulance had responded to a medical incident at the hotel.

Paparazzi photos published by TMZ show Spears, 42, wearing just a pair of shorts, with a blanket wrapped around her, clutching a pillow in her arms.

Paul Richard Soliz, 37, was photographed standing fully dressed beside Spears, wearing a flannel shirt, black jeans, a cap, and sneakers, amid rumors that he was her former housekeeper and boyfriend.

Entertainment Tonight reported that first responders visited the hotel on the Sunset Strip after the Los Angeles Fire Department received a 911 call at around 12:42 a.m. requesting aid for an injured adult female.

According to an LAFD spokesperson, the paramedic crew departed the Chateau Marmont just over 30 minutes later, at 1:17 a.m., with an empty ambulance, as no one required transport to a hospital.

The spokesperson added that there was no law enforcement response to the call.

The incident happened the same week she reached a divorce settlement with her estranged husband, Sam Asghari, days after she reached a separate settlement with her estranged father.

Many people will certainly be reminded of Britney Spears' encounters with the paparazzi in the 2000s, including the night in 2007 when she shaved her head. A series of public meltdowns eventually resulted in her being placed under a conservatorship that has been controlled by her father, Jamie Spears, for almost 14 years.

Early on Friday morning, the singer tried to allay concerns by writing in a social media post that she felt “harassed” by the paramedics' presence.

“Just to let people know … the news is fake !!!” she wrote in a post on Instagram. “I would like respect at this time for people to understand I am getting stronger everyday !!!”

Addressing the incident, she continued: “I also twisted my ankle last night and paramedics showed up at my door illegally.

“They never came in my room but I felt completely harassed. I'm moving to Boston !!! Peace,” she added.

ET reported that in a different version of her post, which has since been deleted, Spears appeared to deny that the woman in the photographs outside the Chateau Marmont was her, writing: “Most of the pics are body doubles and I think most know that.”

A few hours later, Spears shared a video showing her 42.3 million followers her swollen and bruised ankle, explaining from behind the camera that she had tried “to do a leap in the living room at the Chateau, and I fell and embarrassed myself, and that's it.”

In the post's caption, Spears appeared to accuse her mom, Lynne Spears, of calling the paparazzi on her.

“I know my mom was involved !!! I haven't talked to her in 6 months and she called right after it happened before the news being out !!! I was set up just like she did way back when !!! I wish I had grandparents !!! I can't stand her !!! I honestly don't care I will say it !!!” she wrote.

This is not the first time Spears has injured her ankle. In 2020, the pop star posted a video to Instagram of the moment she broke the metatarsal bone in her foot while dancing in her home studio. She was left wearing a cast until it healed.

Representatives for Spears and her mom did not respond to a request for comment from Business Insider. The LAFD's public information officer, who deals with non-emergency issues and events, could not be reached.
