On Jan. 6, the Galerie Sympa Instagram account announced that Britney Spears was gearing up for her first art show. However, according to her representative, fans of the "Toxic" singer may be disappointed. 

As stated in the post, which can be seen below, the page stated that the "Crossroads" actress was preparing for her "first solo show in a contemporary art gallery on Saturday, the 18th of January 2020." Additionally, they used the hashtag #sometimesyoujustgottaplay, which was a caption that Spears herself had used on her Instagram at one time, which led some to believe that that may have been the name of the art show in France.

However, the singer's representative told E! News that the announcement was, in actuality, just a hoax.

According to the outlet, the insider shared that information about her solo exhibition was "inaccurate" and added that "she is not involved."

As reported by Artnet News, it is believed that the gallery's co-director, Cédric Fargues, used the faux exhibit to boost his own career. Leading up to the lie's unraveling, the publication also reports that Fargues responded to Instagram users who voiced their uncertainty about the show's legitimacy. When one particular message expressed doubt, he said, "Ur feeling is wrong, it's a miracle!"

Aside from the art show hoax, the "Baby One More Time" singer has also been in the news for other mysteries and issues surrounding her social media in the past year. In 2019, Spears' mother, Lynne Spears, revealed that she believed her daughter's team had been deleting positive comments from her accounts in order to damage her image. 

Additionally, Jamie Spears, Spears' father who oversees her conservatorship, also launched a lawsuit against the creator of the #FreeBritney movement for creating "conspiracy theories" about her well-being.
