Britney Spears posted an Instagram video of herself dancing with two butcher knives, with the caption “I started playing in the kitchen with knives today!!!” But after fans on social media expressed concern about the dangerous stunt, she added: “Don’t worry they are NOT real knives !!! Halloween is soon!!!” That calmed the situation, but she does hit the knives together in the video, and a metal clanging sound can be heard. TMZ has previously reported that Spears has a “fascination” with knives and keeps them all over her house, including the bedroom. A source claimed she “was paranoid someone was going to get her, and she needed the knives as protection.” When Spears’ controversial conservatorship finally ended, one of the recommendations was that she be kept away from knives.
