Britney Spears pointed the finger, made various hand gestures on Instagram after speaking gibberish and acting manic in public

January 16, 2023

Britney Spears has flipped the finger several times in a new post on Instagram after it was revealed she was being manic while on a date with husband Sam Asghari at a restaurant. The pop princess struck various poses in front of the camera while showing various hand gestures.

Spears made a series of posts on Instagram following the incident at the restaurant, allegedly speaking gibberish. She once tried to cover her face with a menu after realizing someone was filming her.

First, she posted a photo of a woman sitting alone at a small table with a bag on her head and wearing sunglasses. The caption read: They told me I couldn’t do it, so I did it.

This appeared to be her response to reports of her public meltdown, although it was puzzling as to her erratic behavior at the time. A few hours later, she published another post.

She posted a picture of what appeared to be a giant rock with spiraling yellow lines. In the caption, the 41-year-old admitted she doesn’t know what it is but that it looks pretty cool to her.

She then shared a video of herself dancing while the Divinyls song I Touch Myself played in the background. Spears tousled her blonde locks left and right as she stuck her tongue out at the camera.

She was wearing a strapless white mini dress with yellow lining, and knee-high boots. The hitmaker then snapped her middle finger multiple times and made various gestures, from the heart hand to the okay hand sign to hook ’em horns or just rock on. Spears also dabbed some foundation onto her face.

TMZ reported on Spears and Asghari’s Friday night dinner at JOEY Restaurant in the San Fernando Valley. As expected, many recognized her immediately and began filming, apparently triggering her manic reaction.

The controversial star began screaming and speaking incoherently. The publication claims that Asghari couldn’t take it anymore and stormed out of the restaurant.

Spears was left alone, talking non-stop in what was said to be gibberish. She then followed her husband with her bodyguard, who returned to pay the bill.

Both Spears and Asghari’s reps have yet to comment on the matter. Joey’s manager told opposite Page Six, they could not reveal any information or confirm if the couple was there. Spears has been known to struggle with mental health issues, in part because of the stress her 13-year guardianship brought.
