Britney Spears is taking a breather.

Fans of the pop star were quick to notice that the "Toxic" singer had deactivated her Instagram account yesterday. After taking her page and its content down, Spears tweeted that nothing is wrong and she merely wants a social media cleanse following her engagement to her longtime boyfriend, Sam Asghari.

"Don't worry folks … just taking a little break from social media to celebrate my engagement !!!! I'll be back soon," the singer wrote.

A source also told People that all is well with Spears and fans shouldn't worry about her absence from the social media platform.

"[Britney] is taking a break, as many celebrities do," the source told the outlet. "It was her decision, and nothing else should be read into it. She is in a great place, legally and personally."

Spears announced to fans on Sunday that she was officially engaged to her boyfriend, sharing a surprise Instagram post and showing off her four-carat, round-cut diamond ring from Forever Diamonds NY. People reported that the star is "ecstatic" about her engagement and looking forward to starting a future with Asghari by her side.

As for Asghari, the model and fitness trainer recently opened up about his relationship with Spears in an interview for Men's Health.

"I just want her to be happy. If something makes her happy, I'll do it. I'm not going to argue," he told the outlet. "What's that saying? 'Happy wife, happy life.'"
