Britney Spears stunned fans on Wednesday by sharing a shocking video of the exact moment she broke her foot.
Sam Asghari revealed earlier this month that his popstar girlfriend was in a cast after breaking a metatarsal bone in her foot. And as she recovers from the injury, Britney decided to post a clip on Instagram of the energetic dance routine which led to the break.
In the clip, the 38-year-old can be seen performing an improvised routine to the sound of Kings of Leon track Sex on Fire, with moves including some impressive jumps, spins, and floorwork.
But it appeared to be an awkward landing after a small jump that caused the bone to snap, with a loud pop clear to hear at the end of the video.
Alongside the video, Britney wrote: “I haven’t danced in six months, so I was full throttle at this spot!!!! And yes …. I know I’m barefoot …. don’t laugh but I grip the floor better that way!!!! PS you can hear where I broke my foot here…. sorry it’s kind of loud !!!!!”
She quickly received messages of support from her famous friends, including Selma Blair, who commented: “You are adorable. And that is full on buzz kill. Recover well angel.”
