Britney Spears has spoken out after a police visit following her recent knife dancing video.

The pop star took to Instagram on Friday to assure fans that the knives she was dancing with in a video she posted earlier this week were "not real".

Britney's statement follows shortly after it was reported that the police visited her property to perform a wellness check after they received a tip about a video she had posted of herself enthusiastically dancing with a large knife in each hand.

"I know I spooked everyone with the last post, but these are fake knives that my team rented from Hand Prop shop in LA," the 41-year-old wrote alongside another clip of her dancing with the knives.

"These are not real knives. No one needs to worry or call the police. I'm trying to imitate one of my favorite performers Shakira ... a performance I was inspired by !!!" she continued, referring to Shakira's recent MTV VMA performance.

Britney concluded the post, "Cheers to us bad girls who aren't afraid to push boundaries and take risks."

According to Page Six, Captain Dean Worthy of the Ventura County Sheriff's Office stated that the sergeant who responded to the call has dealt with multiple incidents involving the Toxic hitmaker.

"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 said, according to Page Six.

Worthy told the outlet that once the officer got to the singer's property, her security team did not allow them to see Britney but assured them that she was "fine". Worthy said, "They didn't want to let the officer in to see her physically."
