Britney Spears is back on social media sharing a new work out video and telling fans she dropped a few pounds on Wednesday.

The Toxic singer had recently checked into a facility to deal with mental health issues and spoke out earlier this week to try to dispel rumors that she was held against her will by her team.

Fans flooded the comments of the video and questioned whether or not it was genuinely posted by the star or perhaps something more nefarious.

‘Who knew stress would be a great 5 pound weight loss. Yay for me,’ Britney captioned the fitness video.

With the sounds of Cardi B’s hit I Like It playing over the time-lapse footage, the 37-year-old star chronicled her routine.

The video begins with the pop princess working out her upper body by doing lateral raises with weights and then transitioning to a series of forward raises.

She then moves to side bends with her dumbbells alternating the right and left and gets some core work in with crunches on a stability ball.

Towards the end the living legend hits fans with an impromptu dance performance busting out some of her iconic moves. 

Britney sported a pair of red sneakers, loose fit yoga pants and a lemon yellow sports bra with a strappy back for her sweat session and had her blonde hair pulled up in a messy bun.

Earlier in April, TMZ reported that the singer had been struggling to cope with mental strain following her dad Jamie’s ill health and checked herself into a facility to ‘focus on herself.’ 

Getting in a good work out, specifically with aerobic exercise, improves mental health quality.

Fans have become increasingly concerned about Britney and her health after her former manager Sam Lufti tweeted his commentary the ongoing events surrounding the singer.

The comments came amid the circulating social media hashtag #FreeBritney, that implied the singer is being controlled against her free will.

Britney spoke out in a video shortly after and insisted that ‘all is well’ and that she’ll be back in the limelight soon, while also hitting back at Lufti. 

‘I wanted to say hi, because things that are being said have just gotten out of control!!! Wow!!!’ Spears said. ‘There’s rumors, death threats to my family and my team, and just so many things crazy things being said.’

She went on to call out Sam directly:  ‘These fake emails everywhere were crafted by Sam Lutfi years ago… I did not write them.’

Britney continued: ‘He was pretending to be me and communicating with my team with a fake email address. My situation is unique, but I promise I’m doing what’s best at this moment.’

Lufti, via Twitter, denied having any access to Britney’s e-mail, saying he thought the remarks were put out by Britney’s camp for the purpose of distracting the public and focusing their ire toward him.

In 2009, a judge granted a restraining order preventing Lufti from getting near Britney for three years.
