Britney Spears confirmed she is taking a break from social media to celebrate her engagement with boyfriend Sam Asghari.

Fans were getting worried when they noticed the Toxic singer's Instagram had been deleted, with her page showing the words: "Sorry, this page isn't available".

She had been extremely active on social media over the last few months, especially after she got engaged.

Britney eased her fans' worries by taking to Twitter to tell everyone not to panic about her lack of online presence.

"Don’t worry folks … just taking a little break from social media to celebrate my engagement !!!! I’ll be back soon," the 39-year-old said.

After fans panicked about her deleted Instagram, her lawyer Mathew Rosengart confirmed to Page Six that it was Britney's decision to take a social media break.

A source also told the publication that she had deleted her social media to send a "powerful message" and that it was "her decision".

They added that she was taking a break from social media "in light of the successful path that she’s been on and continues to be on [following] the news of [her engagement].”

The Oops! I Did It Again singer's last Instagram post had her thanking the "#FreeBritney" movement.

She said: "You guys f***ing kick a**!!!! Love you so much and God bless."

The sudden deletion of Britney's Instagram account comes just days after she announced her engagement to boyfriend Sam.
