Britney Spears Accused Of Battery

As if there’s not been enough drama surrounding Britney Spears lately, the embattled pop star is now under investigation for battery after her housekeeper filed a police report.

Captain Eric Buschow from Ventura County Sheriff’s Department confirmed that the employee reported the “Toxic” singer “struck them during a dispute” over a cell phone. The supposed incident took place at Spears’ home early this week but, according to the singer’s lawyer, Mathew Rosengart, resulted in “no injury whatsoever.”

In a statement about the case, Britney’s new attorney called the issue “overblown sensational tabloid fodder” and “nothing more than a manufactured ‘he said she said’ regarding a cell phone” with “no striking and obviously no injury whatsoever.” “Anyone can make an accusation but this should have been closed immediately.” “To its credit, the Sheriff’s office itself has acknowledged that the incident was classified as a ‘very minor misdemeanour…’ and confirmed ‘there were no injuries.’ If this did not involve Britney Spears it never would have been reported at all.”

The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office is reviewing the incident before bringing its findings to the district attorney’s office. 

Police officers reported to the 39-year-old singer’s mansion last week after she called 911 to report a mysterious theft but she changed her mind and declined to file a report. 

“She called and wanted to report some type of theft,” he said. “When deputies arrived and contacted her security staff, they informed the deputies that Ms. Spears decided she did not want to file a report at that time. And so, deputies left.”
