BRITNEY Spears unintentionally sent the internet into a frenzy on Monday after a viral meme that claimed she designed and built the Eiffel Tower was believed by many fans.
The 38-year-old pop star has been flooded with support from her loyal fanbase as she continues to battle her dad, Jamie Spears, for control of her ongoing conservatorship.
To show the Toxic singer some more love, one Twitter use created a meme of the singer standing in front of the iconic landmark in Paris – which was completed in 1889.
Britney made a press tour stop and posed in front of the Eiffel Tower while promoting Oops! I Did It Again more than a century later in 2000.
She wore a wrap crop top that showed off her belly button ring and rocked a short layered bob at the time.
The dancer glowed in the snaps – where she flashed a big smile throughout the photoshoot.
The meme creator posted two side-by-side images where the mom-of-two proudly posed on a terrace that overlooked the City of Love.
Alongside the 20-year-old throwbacks was the caption: “Britney Spears after the completion of the Eiffel Tower, which she designed and oversaw the construction of, in 2000.”
The fan was met with thousands of replies and nearly 200,000 likes… and counting.
While most people were in on the joke and appreciated the sarcasm, some appeared to genuinely question the statement and fell for the claim.
One person tweeted: “Why didn’t I know that Britney Spears designed & paid for the construction of the Eiffel Tower?”
“Wow I just read somewhere that Britney Spears designed and built the Eiffel Tower. Her talent is truly unparalleled,” another wrote.
A curious fan questioned: “Wait wasn’t the tower built in 1889?” Which warranted the reply: “There was a model-sized prototype designed in 1899 but it was physically impossible for it to be built at scale until Britney made a few changes to the underlying rules of our universe.”
Someone else who had doubts about the sincerity said: “I’m… Pretty sure the tweet is sarcasm as the eiffel tower was not built in 2000 lol.”
However, someone tried to clear up the confusion: “No, Britney Spears definitely managed and completed that project in July of 2000, after the previous eiffel tower was demolished in ’65.”
Fans of the Crossroads star have created memes or shown love to Britney in other ways online in recent months as she continues to fight her father in her ongoing conservatorship.
Hordes of #FreeBritney supporters attended the star’s latest hearing at a LA courthouse last Wednesday as they held banners demanding for the singer to be "freed" from her conservatorship.
Why is #freebritney trending and what does the star have to say about her conservatorship?
Britney Spears' conservatorship has sparked outrage among fans, particularly since she herself has made it clear she does not want it to continue in its current form.
It was implemented in 2008 after a series of public meltdowns.
Britney's conservatorship prevents her from controlling her life or having any access to her million-dollar fortune.
Britney's lawyer, Samuel D Ingham III has said that she is "strongly opposed" to Jamie Spears continuing to control her affairs.
Due to health issues last year – which are came after claims of a physical altercation with his grandson Sean Preston – Jamie had stepped down temporarily from his role in Britney's conservatorship.
Britney instead wants Jodi Montgomery, who is a trained conservator, to have permanent control.
Fans of Britney say the 38-year-old superstar is being manipulated and controlled under the grounds of her conservatorship.
Under the hashtag #freebritney, they're calling for the end of her conservatorship
Jamie Spears says Britney's conservatorship is "no one else's business" and #FreeBritney movement "is a joke."
However, the judge ruled she will remain under the legal control of her father, Jamie Spears, indefinitely, according to documents obtained by Variety.
Despite Britney filing a request last week asking for her dad to be removed from the conservatorship, the extension remains until at least February 1, 2021.
The outlet reported that the singer’s dad and mom, Lynne Spears – as well as four attorney’s – all took part in the discussions during the hearing.
Despite not getting the results she wanted, the Louisiana native seemed undefeated as she recognized her followers' efforts in a lengthy post on Instagram.
"For me I want to thank all my dear … sweet … real fans for being so damn wonderful!!”
The Circus hitmaker concluded: "I can feel your hearts and I know you can feel mine… thank you for your support!!!”
