Her strong fanbase, once again, seemingly found an inconsistency in one of the singer's Instagram posts that had them seeing double.

WATCH: Britney Spears' quirky swimsuit video

Britney posted a video of herself in a skimpy snakeskin bikini, with white henna tattoos all over her body, dancing and pulling out all of her best moves in front of a bright yellow background.

"I got henna tattoos again and put this video together in 2 hours …," she wrote in the caption. "No professional lighting or camera equipment ... just me playing around doing my thing !!!! Ps my hands are smaller than a 6 years olds so excuse the edit !!!!"

The original bikini henna photo, which has since been deleted

However, there were many who noticed that the video was maybe less recent than it seemed, pointing out the fact that Britney posted a picture wearing the same bikini and same henna tattoos in front of the same background over a year ago.

"This is from last year Google britney with henna #freebritney," one fan wrote, with another adding, "OMG! What's going on here???" It is, however, possible that the singer could've decided to recreate the very same photo for her second go with henna, although she doesn't explicitly acknowledge it.

She put up a post after another one of her previous photos had fans questioning its authenticity, writing in the caption, "Ok so ... I edited out my tattoo on my neck cause I wanted to see what it would look like clean … and yeah I like it better so while you guys are talking behind my back go ahead and kiss my [expletive] haters."
