Britney Spears has returned to Instagram.
Less than a week after messages like “Sorry, this page isn’t available,” and “User not found,” appeared on Spears’ account, Spears came back with photos from her weekend getaway where she and Sam Asghari celebrated their engagement.
“I still can’t believe it !!!! I couldn’t stay away from the gram too long so I’m back already 💍😂🤷🏼♀️🤣 !!!! Psss I took these in Palm Springs with clip in extensions,” she wrote.
On Sept. 14, Spears confirmed that she was taking an Instagram break.
“Don’t worry folks… just taking a little break from social media to celebrate my engagement 💍😉 !!!!” she wrote on Twitter. “I’ll be back soon 💋🌹✨”

The removal comes just hours after Spears shared an emotional post addressing her father’s agreement to step down after 13 years as her conservator.
“I’ve waited 13 years and I’m counting for my freedom,” she wrote, via Variety.
“Growing up in a world where basically almost everything I did was controlled by someone else… I hope this message gets to people who have been confused or manipulated by a system !!!!” Spears wrote in her caption alongside a screenshot of the article. “No … you’re not alone and no… you’re not crazy !!!! People need to hear this before it’s TOO LATE !!!! I’ve waited 13 years and counting for my freedom !!!!!”
Before confirming the news herself, a source close to the songstress claimed to PageSix that she wants some “silence.”
“She’s happy and in a great place, and silence can be a powerful thing and a powerful message. This was her decision,” a source told the outlet, adding that she is taking some time away 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 outlet also reports that Spears’ attorney, Mathew Rosengart, confirmed his client’s choice to take a social media break.
