  • Britney Spears wrote on Instagram that she would look "extremely small" if she performed with Christina Aguilera's backup dancers
  • Aguilera did not comment on Spears' post but unfollowed her fellow pop star
  • Aguilera previously showed her support for Spears after the latter's conservatorship was terminated

Christina Aguilera no longer follows her fellow pop star Britney Spears on Instagram after the latter posted a controversial message earlier this week.

Aguilera, 41, made it known that she does not approve of Spears' post that body-shamed the "Beautiful" singer's backup dancers by unfollowing the "Toxic" hitmaker on Instagram, Page Six reported.

The social media snub came after Spears shared Monday a quote attributed to Rodney Dangerfield that read, "I found there was only one way to look thin: hang out with fat people."

The "Gimme More" singer accompanied the quote with a lengthy caption that read in part, "If I had Christina Aguilera's dancers, I would have looked extremely small."

Spears made the comment while discussing in the caption some of the things she was allegedly not allowed to do during her 13-year conservatorship, which was terminated in November 2021. As she reflected on her past, she wrote that it was "hard" seeing "how much of my womanhood was stripped away at that time, and every person sat back and didn't say a thing."

"Anyways, I will be here talking 'bout things people NEVER talked about," she added.

A rep for Aguilera had no comment on Spears' post when Entertainment Weekly reached out to them. However, fans expressed their disappointment over Spears' message on social media.

"This is rude. I'm disappointed, Britney," one fan wrote, while another said, "No need to put another woman down to feel better about yourself. Focus on your healing."

Aguilera and Spears were both part of "The Mickey Mouse Club" in 1993. However, it's difficult to describe their relationship.

In November 2021, Aguilera was asked about her thoughts on the termination of Spears' conservatorship at the Latin Grammy Awards. However, her publicist cut in and pulled her away, saying, "No, we're not doing that tonight. I'm sorry."

Aguilera frowned and told reporters she couldn't answer the question. Before walking away, she added, "But I'm happy for her."

Spears apparently wasn't happy with Aguilera's lack of response. Spears shared a clip of Aguilera being asked about her conservatorship via Instagram Stories and wrote, "I love and adore everyone who supported me ... but refusing to speak when you know the truth is equivalent to a lie!!!"

"[Thirteen] years being in a corrupt abusive system yet why is such a hard topic for people to talk about???" Spears added. "I'm the one who went through it!!! All the supporters who spoke up and supported me thank you ... Yes, I do matter!"

Despite Spears' reaction, Aguilera showed her support for the "Oops!...I Did it Again" hitmaker months later, saying in an interview that she "would love to speak" with Spears and "wanted to be careful discussing" her fellow pop star's conservatorship.

"I never want to speak out of turn about somebody that I have so much respect and admiration for," Aguilera said, adding that she was "so happy" that Spears was freed from the conservatorship.

"I couldn't be happier for her, and every woman deserves to feel empowered and to own that for themselves, however they see fit," Aguilera added.

Spears has been calling out people since the end of her conservatorship allowed her to speak freely for the first time in more than a decade.

She has slammed her parents Jamie Spears and Lynne Spears, her sister Jamie Lynn Spears and exes Kevin Federline and Justin Timberlake on social media.
