Britney Spears dances with ‘fake’ knives again after Justin Timberlake abortion bombshell

Britney Spears is the knife of the party once more.

The pop superstar shared a new video of herself dancing around with knives via Instagram Tuesday night — just weeks after a similar video caused enough alarm for authorities to perform a wellness check at her house.

In her latest post, Spears confidently held a butcher knife in each hand and twirled around with a smile on her face.

She donned a tiny orange and white polka-dot crop top and white bikini bottoms, which she also wore in the original video from Sept. 25.

Although the noise of the knives hitting each other sounded quite real during her dance routine, she assured fans that they were fake as she sarcastically offered an invitation to her home.

“Come over don’t worry I have such a warm inviting loving home with these FAKE knives 🔪 !!!” she wrote in the caption.

The Grammy winner, 41, previously said the knives were fake in the video that originally sparked concern.

“I started playing in the kitchen with knives today 🤷🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️ !!! Don’t worry they are NOT real knives !!!” she wrote at the time.

She hopped on Instagram once more to address fans’ worries in the caption of a new knife-wielding dancing video on Sept. 28.

Captain Dean Worthy of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office told Page Six that a sergeant was dispatched to Spears’ residence.

“I know I spooked everyone with the last post, but these are fake knives that my team rented from Hand Prop shop in LA. These are not real knives,” Spears explained.

“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 added, referencing the Colombian superstar’s 2023 MTV Video Music Awards performance last month.

“Cheers to us bad girls who aren’t afraid to push boundaries and take risks 💅🏼💅🏼💅🏼!”

Page Six confirmed that a wellness check was performed at Spears’ mansion in Thousand Oaks, Calif. on Sept. 28 following the first knife video.

Captain Dean Worthy of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office told us that a sergeant had been dispatched to the singer’s home after responding to the call from a concerned individual.

Although Spears’ security team did not allow the sergeant to “see her physically,” they said she was just fine.

As for who called to request the wellness check, Worthy said it was not a fan.

The “Lucky” singer’s latest knife-wielding video came hours after it was revealed that she had an abortion while dating Justin Timberlake.

“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,” Worthy said.

Earlier this year, TMZ founder Harvey Levin alleged in “Britney Spears: The Price of Freedom” that the “Circus” hitmaker has a “fascination with knives” and even sleeps with one under her bed.

Her apparent affinity for knives reportedly comes from her fear that someone will break into her home, “strap her to a gurney and take her to a psych ward.”

Spears’ latest attention-grabbing dancing video came the same day it was revealed that she had an abortion during her relationship with Justin Timberlake, whom she dated from 1999 to 2002.

The highly anticipated memoir drops Oct. 24.

She shared the bombshell in her upcoming memoir, “The Woman in Me,” explaining that she chose to have the abortion because the *NSYNC singer did not want to be a father at the time.

“I loved Justin so much. I always expected us to have a family together one day. This would just be much earlier than I’d anticipated,” she writes.

“But Justin definitely wasn’t happy about the pregnancy. He said we weren’t ready to have a baby in our lives, that we were way too young.”

Spears’ highly anticipated memoir will be released Oct. 24.
