Britney Spears says paramedics turned up 'illegally' after twisting her ankle at Chateau Marmont

Britney Spears has downplayed concerns about her health, after paramedics were called to the Chateau Marmont, a boutique hotel in LA.

The 42-year-old singer shared several posts on social media, addressing the incident in the early hours of Thursday morning at the luxury venue on Sunset Boulevard.

Photographs taken by paparazzi appeared to show Spears wearing pyjama shorts outside the hotel, while wrapped in a blanket and clutching a pillow.

In a lengthy Instagram post, Spears wrote: "Just to let people know... the news is fake!!!," adding, "I am getting stronger every day!!!"

She went on to detail an injury she had suffered that night, writing: "I also twisted my ankle last night and paramedics showed up at my door illegally. They never came in my room but I felt completely harassed. I'm moving to Boston."

In a later post, she shared a short video showing her swollen ankle, saying: "I really twisted my ankle last night... It's so bad... F****** idiot here tries to do a leap here in the living room at the Chateau and I fell, embarrassed myself, and that's it.

"Paramedics came to my door, illegally, and of course caused this scene, which was so unnecessary, when all it needed was ice. But yeah, it is actually pretty bad."

Spears is now "safe and at home", two sources close to Spears told NBC News.

A spokesman for the Los Angeles Fire Department did not identify Spears as the subject of a 911 call at the Chateau Marmont but confirmed paramedics were dispatched to the hotel Thursday morning after a report that an adult female had been injured.

The call was received at 12.42am according to the spokesman, Brian Humphrey.

Humphrey said it was unclear if paramedics encountered the person who had reportedly been injured or offered medical help.

No law enforcement was summoned to the address and paramedics left at 1.17am, Humphrey said.

He said the LAFD has no immediate comment on the claims Spears made in her social media post.

The incident comes in the week Spears's divorce from Sam Asghari was finalised. The former couple - who were married for just 14 months - recently filed paperwork, indicating they had reached a divorce settlement.

Meanwhile, it was announced last week that Spears had also reached a settlement with her father about her controversial 13-year conservatorship which ended in late 2021.

Late last year, Spears released a tell-all memoir - The Woman In Me - giving insight into her stage career, her relationship with Justin Timberlake, friendships with stars including Madonna and Paris Hilton, and her breakdown in 2007.
