Jessica Simpson has responded to her fans after they shared their concern for her.

Many fans were alarmed last week by a "disturbing" video of the star, in which she appeared to be slurring her words and acting bizarrely.

In the clip, Jessica chatted about designing her daughter's room as part of an advertisement campaign with Pottery Barn.

Viewers who saw the video on her Instagram Reels were quick to claim that the star's speech was a little off, as was the appearance of her face and neck.

Watch the video below:

They flooded Twitter with messages of concern for the 42-year-old, who has struggled with alcohol addiction in the past and been sober for almost five years.

"It's kinda disturbing. Something is off about her lately. I like her though and hope she's okay," one fan wrote. Another added: "I know she's lost a bit of weight for health reasons but I hope she isn’t overdoing it, she's such a gentle soul I want her to be happy."

Others speculated that the singer's altered appearance was the result of her taking drugs.

Jessica responded to fans in another Instagram video, this time of her alone in her studio as she sang along to her song 'Party of One'.

In a lengthy caption, she addressed her fans, saying: "As much as I have learned to block out destructive noise, peoples’ comments and judgements can still hurt deeply with their incessant nagging, 'You will never be good enough.'"

The star went on to hint that she is still sober, writing: "The most important thing I have learned through the last five years without alcohol being a guard for escapism is that I CAN and ALWAYS WILL get through it. I am capable of pretty much anything I care enough about to put my mind to. I am present. I am deeply inspired. I am determined. I am honest. I care about other people."

"After grounding myself just now with my voice and the lyrics across my heart, I feel compassion for the opinionated hate that some people can so effortlessly just blurt out with such intensity on social media or in the media in general," she continued, adding: "We all have our days of wanting to be, look, do, and feel better. Nobody is alone with that feelin' — that I can promise you."

Jessica concluded her message by encouraging fans to "stay true to YOU".

"Nothin’ and nobody will rob me of my joy. Ya might come close but it is mine to own. Yours should be too," she added.
