38-year-old American singer and a-list celebrity Britney Spears revealed an unusual story on Instagram about an accident at her home that resulted in her home gym burning down! The songwriter shared a video of her quarantine workout, but first explained her lack of adequate gym equipment by casually slipping in the fact that she had burnt the gym down several months back.

“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 burned it down,” she revealed in an Instagram video that quickly went viral. In the caption, she explained what had happened more, writing, “It was an accident ….but 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,” she continued. “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 !!!!”

Fans were quick to wish Spears well in the comments, with one writing, “Thank goodness you’re okay! Take care Britney!” Another quipped, “Me finding and excuse not to exercise,” while a third noted, “Remember last week when we were all wondering how Britney Spears was doing. . . Here’s our answer!”
