• Britney Spears' mental state has been put into questions
  • She has recently posted a photo that has got fans talking
  • It consists of a home gym she burnt down in the past

"Reflecting back remembering when I burnt the gym down in 2020," she captioned, giving followers a glimpse into the chaos that ensued. For many, the post is a reminder of Britney's recent troubles in her personal life. The burnt down gym is a metaphor for her tumultuous public profile in recent times. 

Britney looks back on a harrowing incident

The image laid bare the devastation: a room cloaked in gray dust, gym mirrors smeared with ash, and workout gear reduced to mere shadows of their former glory. It was a fitness fanatic's worst nightmare!

Back in April 2020, Britney made the startling confession, "Yes .... I burnt it down." She recounted the fiery mishap, "I walked past the door to the gym and flames, BOOM !!!!!! By the Grace of God, the alarm went off after that, and yippy hoorah, nobody got hurt," Britney said.

Despite the setback, our resilient songstress found a silver lining, joking about her now sparse gym setup and newfound love for outdoor workouts.  Spears first revealed the incident in an Instagram live in April of that year, as seen by CNN, where she explained that she "had two candles, and yeah, one thing led to another and I burned it down."

It left the room out of commission for several months, leaving Spears to rely on a new routine made up of weights, squats and lunges, according to the publication.

She added, "Unfortunately now I have only two pieces of equipment left lol and a one-sided mirror gym. But it could be much worse so I’m grateful."

Hopefully, at some point, she'll give us a glimpse at the room's transformation. But this wasn’t the first time Spears has had an issue with open flames. In 2002, E Online reported that Spears nearly burned down an apartment building in New York City when she left a candle burning while she went out with a friend.

Amidst the ashes of the past, Britney's been fanning the flames of family reconciliation. A source spilled to 'ET' that the star, long estranged from her kin, is "actively working on reconnecting with some of her immediate family." It's a heartwarming turn of events, with Britney seeking to bury the hatchet and embrace a "new, bright, loving, and happy future."

Even Jamie Lynn Spears, Britney's sister, has been in recent contact, and while Britney and her dad, Jamie Spears, have had their public spats, notably over her controversial conservatorship, it seems there's hope for healing.

We’ll have to wait and see whether Spears’ reflection this week yields any new insights, but for now, it’s simply a reminder of one of the wackiest celebrity news stories of 2020, even if that’s a year many of us would love to forget.

Lynne Spears, Britney's mom, also seems to be in the picture after a visit and some memoir drama.

"It is a day-by-day process," the source added, hinting at the delicate path to family unity. And with Britney embracing her single life post-Sam Asghari, she's all about self-love and personal growth. "I'm definitely changing all that," she declared, ready to turn the page.
