UPDATE: Britney Spears has alleged that the "news is fake" following an incident at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles.

"Most of the pics are body doubles and I think most know that!!!" she told fans on Instagram in a now-deleted message. A second message read: "Just to let people know … the news is fake !!! I would like respect at this time for people to understand I am getting stronger everyday !!! Truth sucks so can someone teach me how to lie"?"

She concluded" “PS … I need an espresso !!! PSS … Not sure why I feel the need to share this … I guess I’m just a girl and I’m on my period so I’m bitchy … [expletive] !!! 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."

ORIGINAL POST: Britney Spears has been pictured walking outside the famed Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles in tears and with no shoes, after emergency services were called over a "disturbance". The pictures, posted by Daily Mail, reveal the pop star using a pillow to cover her topless chest, as she walked out of the hotel with security and her former boyfriend Paul Soliz.

It was reported that police were called to the hotel late on May 1 after a "disturbance" was reported.  Officers found no signs of trouble and left.

TMZ reported that Britney and Paul were then "partying and drinking" in their room but allegedly became entangled in a "huge physical altercation" in which Britney "may have hurt her leg". Guests allegedly heard "screaming" in the hallway and so the paramedics were called. 

"At 1am an ambulance arrived on the premises. I can confirm no-one was transported. Services left the scene at 1.17am. The police department was not called," LAFD spokesman Brian Humphrey said. 

Britney then left the hotel with security.

The scenes come hours after it was confirmed that the 'Toxic' singer's divorce from Sam Asghari  has been officially finalized. The former couple first tied the knot in 2022, shortly after Britney hitmaker was released from her years-long conservatorship at the hands of her father Jamie Spears, from whom she is estranged. 

They however split only 14 months later, announcing they were going their separate ways last August.

The conservatorship, which controlled the pop singer’s life and money for nearly 14 yearswas dissolved in November 2021. 

“As of today, the conservatorship of the person and estate of Britney Jean Spears is hereby terminated,” Judge Brenda Penny said in her ruling.

Britney tweeted about the decision: “Good God I love my fans so much it’s crazy!!! I think I’m gonna cry the rest of the day!!!! Best day ever … praise the Lord … can I get an Amen???”
