Britney Spears wants the public to know she’s still rocking her infamous toned abs.
The “Toxic” singer took to Instagram to cal out photographers who Spears believes, digitally altered pictures of her bikini body.
Hours after paparazzi photos surfaced of a bikini-clad Spears enjoying the sun while on a private boat, the 37-year-old star posted an Instagram story accusing photogs of trying to make her look “bigger.”
“Yesterday I went swimming, I look like I’m 40 pounds bigger than I am today,” she told the camera. “This is how I am right now, and I’m skinny as a needle. You tell me, what is real?”

“People always say people or celebrities cheat with their images, but never do they question the paparazzi for selling your pic that they have messed with!!!” Spears wrote. “This was all done within the same 17 hours!”
Despite being upset with the latest batch of bikini photos, a source revealed to E! News that Spears looked happy during her weekend getaway with 25-year-old boyfriend Sam Asghari.
"The first day they chartered a yacht, C'est La Vie, and spent the day out on Biscayne Bay goofing around and having fun," the source shared. "They jumped into the water together and tried all different ways of diving off the decks. Britney was having the best time laughing and being with her man."
The pop superstar’s clap back was met with praise from fans who reminded Spears that they’d have her back through thick or thin.
“We don’t care as long as you’re happy and healthy,” one fan assured the singer.

Comedian Heather McMahan known for her “Britney 911” coverage of all things Britney Jean weighed in on the issue, “Tell ‘em Brit! Everyone is trying to stir the pot. You look skinny as a needle but we’d love you thicker than a snicker, too. Keep on spreading the truth sister!”
