Britney Spears’ latest Instagram post NOT created by her social media manager Cassie Petrey… as sources say fan rumors are ‘utter nonsense’
Britney Spears’ fans once again speculated that the superstar was not behind one of her personal Instagram posts.

However, sources told TMZ on Saturday that the rumors were ‘complete nonsense.’
Conspiracy theories: Britney Spears’ fans once again speculated that the superstar was not behind one of her personal Instagram posts
The post featured a photo of a little girl facing away from the camera as she walked in the woods, along with a quote by Alfred Einstein that read, ‘If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.’
The lengthy caption read, ‘I just want to tell you guys a little secret…I believe as people we all want the fairy tale life and by the way I’ve posted … my life seems to look and be pretty amazing … I think that’s what we all strive for !!!! That was one of my mother’s best traits … no matter how shitty a day was when I was younger … for the sake of me and my siblings she always pretended like everything was ok.
‘I’m bringing this to peoples attention because I don’t want people to think my life is perfect because IT’S DEFINITELY NOT AT ALL … and if you have read anything about me in the news this week… you obviously really know now it’s not !!!!

‘I apologize for pretending like I’ve been ok the past two years … I did it because of my pride and I was embarrassed to share what happened to me … but honestly who doesn’t want to capture their Instagram in a fun light!!!!
‘Believe it or not pretending that I’m ok has actually helped … so I decided to post this quote today because by golly if you’re going through hell … I feel like Instagram has helped me have a cool outlet to share my presence … existence … and to simply feel like I matter despite what I was going through and hey it worked … so I’ve decided to start reading more fairy tales!!!!!’
Fans immediately accused Cassie of writing the caption since it referenced Britney’s mother Lynne Spears, 66, in a positive way following the pop star’s emotional testimony in court last week.
Debunked: Sources told TMZ on Saturday that the rumors were ‘complete nonsense.’
Sources told TMZ that ‘this is totally false — just like the previous rumors that Cassie — and insist Britney has always been responsible for all of the messaging on her social media and always will be.’
The sources went on to deny that Britney’s social media accounts do scheduled posts, another conspiracy theory pushed by the fans and said that Britney is in charge of what and when she posts.
They also told TMZ that ‘social media has been the one positive outlet for her where she doesn’t feel controlled … so fans should believe what she says there.’
Not the first time: In April, fans tried to place blame on Cassie for a post on Britney’s Instagram page in which she addressed the recent documentary about her conservatorship, Framing Britney Spears
Meanwhile, the sources maintain that the former The X Factor judge’s digital team is ‘very proud of her for speaking up in court about her conservatorship.’ They added that her explosive testimony on Wednesday did not include complaints about the handling of her social media.
In April, fans tried to place blame on Cassie for a post on Britney’s Instagram page in which she addressed the recent documentary about her conservatorship, Framing Britney Spears. Sources debunked the theory in comments shared with TMZ.
After testifying in court, Spears headed to Hawaii for a vacation with her boyfriend Sam Asghari, 27. The personal trainer had shown his support for his girlfriend, wearing a #FreeBritney t-shirt just a couple of hours before she had her say in court.
