Young gay fan gets letter from Britney after emotional meeting

Young gay fan gets letter from Britney after emotional meeting

A Britney Spears fan got a personal letter of encouragement from the star after he met her recently.

David LeCours got the chance to meet Britney in Las Vegas and gave her a letter he wrote about the power her music gave him when he was struggling with his sexuality, and how it helped him tell his friends he was gay.

He said Britney had saved him and “helped me through my darkest days”.

LeCours shared a photo of his meet-and-greet with Britney on Instagram and captioned it with his story:

“I honestly can’t believe I got to meet this wonderful and beautiful women again. She is the sweetest and nicest person alive. I got to give her my letter that I put so much effort into. The letter explained how she helped me get through a real tough period in my life these past couple of months, and how I wanted to end it all but she made me be strong. As I was leaving the building where meet and greet was held, Britney’s body guard ran and stopped me and said Britney requested my address so she could respond because my letter meant so much to her. Thank you for everything Britney. I wouldn’t be able to be so confident and open about my sexuality if your music and you didn’t help me. I love you so much, thank you for not only being my inspiration but helping me get back up and be strong.”

In response, Britney did the unthinkable in this day and age: she wrote him a letter. On paper. And mailed it to him.


Britney has previously spoken about the way in which gay fans influence her music. Speaking to Huffington Post ahead of the release of her fourth studio album last year she said:

"I get inspiration from them on almost all of my songs."

"They're somewhat girls, so it's so inspiring to do stuff that they like to hear, like the cool 'in' stuff. Whatever I do for each record is definitely inspired by them."
