Britney Spears Posts Shocking Photo of Her Gym She Burned Down in 2020

In 2020, the singer shared the story of how her home gym went up in flames.

In an Instagram post on Tuesday, Britney Spears shared a shocking photo of her burned-down gym, reopening the chapter on a dramatic incident that occurred in 2020

The 42-year-old singer took to social media to reflect on the unfortunate event, captioning her post, "Reflecting back remembering when I burnt the gym down in 2020." 

The accompanying image revealed the aftermath of the fire, showcasing a room in significant disarray. The floor appeared completely gray, covered in dust, and the gym mirrors were blurred by ash. Equipment lay in ruins, burned to a crisp, painting a picture of the devastation caused by the fire.

Spears first revealed the gym incident in April 2020, stating on Instagram, "Yes .... I burnt it down. I walked past the door to the gym and flames, BOOM !!!!!! By the Grace of God, the alarm went off after that, and yippy hoorah, nobody got hurt." Despite the damage, Spears expressed gratitude that the situation wasn't worse, saying, "Unfortunately, now I have only two pieces of equipment left lol and a one-sided mirror gym!!!!! But it could be much worse, so I’m grateful. Pssss I like working out better outside anyways!!!!"


In a video, Britney elaborated on the incident, saying, "I’m in my gym right now. I haven’t been in here for like six months because I burnt my gym down. Unfortunately. I had two candles, and, yeah, one thing led to another, and I burnt it down. So, I’m in here and we only have two pieces of equipment left."

Britney's recent post reflecting on her gym fire comes shortly after a source told ET that the singer, who's long been estranged from much of her immediate family, "wants to try and put any negative feelings aside" with her loved ones.

"She is actively working on reconnecting with some of her immediate family and doing her best to take the steps she feels she needs to," the source said. "It has been a long time coming and she is trying to put the past in the past and focus on a new, bright, loving, and happy future."

The update comes after Britney's sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, revealed she'd recently spoken to the singer. As for Britney's dad, Jamie Spears, the pop star has publicly feuded with her father over her now-terminated conservatorship.

In August, things seemed to be improving between Britney and her mom, Lynne Spears, who visited her daughter's Los Angeles home. Months later, though, Britney made accusations against Lynne in her memoir, The Woman in Me.

"It is also helpful that Britney feels like her voice was finally heard since that's all she wanted for a long time," the source said of the reason for Britney's readiness to reconcile. "There is still a lot of healing that needs to be tended to. It is a day-by-day process."

Britney's apparent change of heart was a welcome development for her family, according to the source.

"Her family was hopeful that some sort of re-engagement would happen at some point," the source added. "Everyone is taking slow and small strides and viewing any step towards reconnecting as a blessing."

This year also marked the end of Britney's marriage to Sam Asghari.

"Now that Britney is single, it’s a new chapter for her," the source noted. "She's really trying to live in the moment and appreciate what she has now."

Earlier this month, Britney reflected on her newly single status, calling it "weird" on Instagram.

"I've had a lot of time to really look back with all the good and bad," she wrote. "I've realized I don’t talk to myself that nicely at all … I'm easily manipulated and I wear my heart on my sleeve … But I'm definitely changing all that."
