Police performed a wellness check on Britney Spears Wednesday after she posted worrisome videos of herself dancing with knives, Page Six can confirm.
Captain Dean Worthy of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office tells us Thursday that one of their sergeants — who has dealt with numerous incidents involving the Princess of Pop over the years — responded to the call.
“Somebody close to Britney had seen the video posted on social media, where she’s dancing and twirling with knives in her hands and they were really concerned for her mental well-being,” the public information officer says.
Worthy says police confirmed that the individual, who asked to remain anonymous, had a relationship with Spears and was not just a “fan.”
“We would normally not respond to fans calling in about a celebrity unless we actually believed that there is a credible threat,” the officer says. “However, we vetted this individual through LAPD … and we determined this is someone who knows Britney on a personal basis.”
Worthy also notes that the initial call was made through the Los Angeles Police Department’s Systemwide Mental Assessment Response Team (SMART) before being relayed to the sheriff’s office.
