I wanted to say hi, because things that are being said have just gotten out of control!!! Wow!!! There’s rumors, death threats to my family and my team, and just so many things crazy things being said. I am trying to take a moment for myself, but everything that’s happening is just making it harder for me. Don’t believe everything you read and hear. These fake emails everywhere were crafted by Sam Lutfi years ago... I did not write them. He was pretending to be me and communicating with my team with a fake email address. My situation is unique, but I promise I’m doing what’s best at this moment 🌸🌸🌸 You may not know this about me, but I am strong, and stand up for what I want! Your love and dedication is amazing, but what I need right now is a little bit of privacy to deal with all the hard things that life is throwing my way. If you could do that, I would be forever grateful. Love you ❤️❤️❤️

Lance Bass says he really regrets not listening to Britney Spears about investing in Uber.
Spears, Beyoncé, and Leonardo DiCaprio are just a few of many Hollywood A-listers to invest in Uber.
In 2015, Spears gave Uber users in LA an early look at a song collab with Iggy Azalea.
Lance Bass might have had a very successful pop career in the '90s and early aughts as a member of NSYNC, but he says he has one big regret from those days: not listening to Britney Spears about investing in Uber.
The former boy band member told The Daily Beast about his missed tech investment opportunity in an interview published on Friday, adding that Spears, the pop icon behind anthems like "Hit Me Baby One More Time" and "Toxic," was an early investor in the ride-hailing company currently valued at $80 billion.
"I don't even know if most people know that, but I learned all about it from her," Bass told the publication about Spears' involvement with Uber.
According to Bass, Spears tried to tell him to invest in Uber as well, but he decided not to do it.
"I definitely am kicking myself," he said. "I was like, 'It's very revolutionary and I think this could disrupt the taxi market.' But my gut was like, 'I don't know, I'm just not ready.'"
Representatives for Uber, Bass, and Spears didn't immediately respond to Insider's requests for comment.
Ashton Kutcher and Beyoncé also invested in Uber
Spears was assisted by Bechtel Ventures, a company that helps Hollywood A-listers navigate Silicon Valley, when she invested in Uber, which was first founded in 2009, Business Insider previously reported.
It is unclear if Spears (whose Forbes-reported $60 million net worth is under near-constant public scrutiny due to her ongoing conservatorship case) still retains her investment in the company.
The pop star was involved with the app-based car service in some capacity up until 2015 at least. That year, Uber riders in LA were given a head start in streaming "Pretty Girls," a song Spears released in collaboration with Iggy Azalea.
While Spears may have been "one of the first" people to financially back Uber, according to Bass, she was not the only Hollywood A-lister to invest in the company.
In 2011, "That '70s Show" actor Ashton Kutcher and his business partner, Guy Oseary, invested $500,000 in Uber that Forbes estimated was worth "100 times what they paid" only five years later.
Other notable faces from the Hollywood crowd to have invested in Uber include Leonardo DiCaprio, Olivia Munn, Sophia Bush, Will Smith, and Jay Z and Beyoncé.
In 2015, Beyoncé performed at an Uber event, the New York Times reported, for a fee of $6 million in restricted stock units.
As for Bass, he told The Daily Beast that he learned his lesson from Uber and is looking for his next big investment opportunity by joining "Unicorn Hunters," a show where entrepreneurs and businesspeople, including Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak, decide whether they'll invest in what could be the next billion-dollar company.

Britney Spears asks to address court at hearing on her conservatorship The pop star, who has been under a legal conservatorship for more than 12 years, has rarely issued public statements about her father's legal guardianship.
By Doha Madani and Diana Dasrath
Britney Spears was granted a request Tuesday to directly address the court managing her conservatorship at a status hearing in June.
Spears' attorney, Samuel D. Ingham III, asked for the hearing when the court convened Tuesday to address matters about accounting and fees, which were pushed back to July for more information. It's unclear what issues Spears will raise or whether she will ask to end her conservatorship.
"The conservatee, she has requested that I seek from the court a status hearing at which she can address the court directly," Ingham said in a videoconference. "This does not relate to any of the matters on the calendar now, and it does not relate to the accounting or the fee issues."
Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny scheduled a status hearing for June 23.
Ingham declined a request for comment.
Madonna's new video expresses love and admiration for Spears amid fallout from the Framing Britney Spears documentary.
By Joey Nolfi
Madame X is a dancer, a professor, a head of state, a housekeeper, an equestrian, and a Britney Spears fan.
The fallout from the New York Times' groundbreaking Framing Britney Spears documentary continues to reverberate through Hollywood, as Madonna — Spears' collaborator on the 2003 hit "Me Against the Music" — shared a short lip-sync video Thursday evening in support of the pop star.
"Love This Song........,Love The Girl who sings it," Madonna tweeted alongside the video, which seemingly employs a face-warping app to animate the cover art from her 2019 album Madame X for a lip-sync performance of Spears' debut single "...Baby One More Time."
Britney Spears said she continues to be “judged” and “insulted” by the media in a candid post that also revealed if she watched The New York Times’ “Framing Britney Spears” documentary.
Britney Spears is addressing The New York Times documentary "Framing Britney Spears" in her latest Instagram post.
On Tuesday, March 30, the pop star took to social media to speak about the impact the FX documentary had on her life, writing, "My life has always been very speculated ... watched ... and judged really my whole life !!!"
She added that this is why she dances, particularly to the work of rocker Steven Tyler, explaining that moving to his songs make her "feel wild and human and alive."
"I have been exposed my whole life performing in front of people!!!" the 39 year old continued. "It takes a lot of strength to TRUST the universe with your real vulnerability cause I've always been so judged... insulted... and embarrassed by the media... and I still am till this day!!!! As the world keeps on turning and life goes on we still remain so fragile and sensitive as people !!!"
Additionally, Britney said she has not watched the entire documentary, adding, "but from what I did see of it I was embarrassed by the light they put me in ... I cried for two weeks and well .... I still cry sometimes !!!!"
"I do what I can in my own spirituality with myself to try and keep my own joy ... love ... and happiness!!!! Every day dancing brings me joy !!!" the mother of two said. "I'm not here to be perfect ... perfect is boring ... I'm here to pass on kindness !!!!"
This is the first time the singer has explicitly addressed the documentary and continued speculation about her conservatorship.
In February, Britney hinted that she's aware of the public's interest in her life, but carefully reminded fans that "no matter what we think we know about a person's life it is nothing compared to the actual person living behind the lens."
Then, on March 1, the "Lucky" singer shared some insight into how she's feeling lately, writing, "This year I devote myself to lots of tea and healing !!!! I'm working on allowing myself to not be so strong all the time and to know it's ok to cry !!!!"
While Britney's comments are often vague, her father Jamie Spears' attorney Vivian Lee Thoreen statements on the matter are anything but. Thoreen recently stated that everything Jamie's done as conservator has been in Britney's "best interest."
"Jamie is not suggesting that he is the perfect dad or that he would receive any 'Father of the Year' award," Thoreen explained to CNN. "Like any parent, he doesn't always see eye-to-eye on what Britney may want. But Jamie believes every single decision he has made has been in her best interest."
Moreover, Thoreen explained that the conservatorship can end at any time, but it all "depends on Britney" filing the petition.
Since then, Britney's legal team has requested Jodi Montgomery be appointed permanent conservator of her person.
E! News reached out to Britney's reps for comment at the time, but never heard back.
