Following her engagement to actor-fitness enthusiast Sam Asghari, pop diva Britney Spears has announced that she will be taking a break from social media.

The 39-year-old singer, who had her Instagram account erased unexpectedly on Tuesday, rushed to Twitter to reassure fans that she would be returning soon.

“Don’t worry folks … just taking a little break from social media to celebrate my engagement!!!! I’ll be back soon,” Britney Spears tweeted.

Last week, she revealed her engagement to longtime lover Asghari on Instagram. For the past four years, the couple has been together.

She has been connecting with her followers via Instagram, giving updates from the case and thanking her supporters, despite her legal battle with her father Jamie Spears to end her 13-year conservatorship.

Jamie Spears filed documents in a Los Angeles court this week to terminate his conservatorship over Britney Spears’ life and finances. He wrote, adding that his daughter “is entitled to have this court now seriously consider whether this conservatorship is no longer required”
