Cops paid a visit to Britney Spears' house for a welfare check after a concerned call from someone "who knew" the pop star, RadarOnline.com has learned.

Somebody who "knew" Spears made the call for a welfare check, according to a report.

Law enforcement sources got the call on Wednesday expressing fears for Spears' well-being over her recent social media activity. Deputies had been informed about a new video she shared of herself flailing around butcher knives while she danced.

In the viral clip, Spears twirled and did her own choreography wearing a polka-dot crop top and a pair of bikini bottoms, assuring fans the knives were fake.

Out of an abundance of caution, deputies from the Ventura County Sheriff's Department ventured to her Thousand Oaks house, sending a group that handles mental evaluations, according to TMZ.

In a follow-up clip, the ...Baby One More Time hitmaker had a white bandage wrapped around her arm and an apparent cut on her thigh, leading some fans to believe she may have sustained the injuries while dancing.

"Lighten up about the knives I'm copying Shakira," Spears captioned her latest video.

According to a bombshell 2023 documentary, Spears has a "fascination with knives" and lives in "mortal fear" of being "re-institutionalized" and that someone will come into her home in the middle of the night, "strap her to a gurney and take her to a psych ward."

Spears was released from her 13-year conservatorship in November 2021, having since called it quits with estranged husband Sam Asghari, who filed for divorce in August 2023 after 14 months of marriage.

A source told Entertainment Tonight, "Britney and Sam have split. She's adamant she didn't cheat. The two haven't got along for a while and it finally came to an end after a major blow up."

Hollywood attorney Neal Hersh is representing the former backup dancer in his divorce proceedings, RadarOnline.com confirmed. Asghari cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the couple's split, asking the court to award him monthly spousal support.

"[Sam] has yet to determine the full nature and extent of the separate property assets and obligations of each party. [Sam] reserves the right to amend this Petition or to conform the Petition to proof," the filing stated, also seeking for his legal bills to be covered by Spears.
