Video surveillance obtained by TMZ shows Britney Spears hitting herself after security staff San Antonio Spurs’ Victor Wembanyama pushed off the pop star’s hands.
The pop star had claimed the security staff had assaulted her; however, Las Vegas Police would not pursue criminal charges.
Spears had initially alleged that a member of the No. 1 pick’s security had backhanded her in the face when she approached him for a picture on Wednesday (July 5) evening.
Las Vegas Police revealed they had concluded their investigation and wouldn’t be filing any charges.
According to an incident report, a Britney Spears’ team member told the Las Vegas Police Department that a security guard hit the star in the face with a closed fist. The report also mentioned that the guard apologized to Spears during a dinner.
However, the incident report explained that the security footage relayed that although the security guard had pushed Spears’ “off of the player” because he did it “without looking,” it caused Spears’ “hand to hit herself in the face.”
Law enforcement has provided an update on the situation following Spears’ claim that she was assaulted by security personnel of the Spurs.
Taking to social media, Spears wrote that she was “aware of the player’s statement” that mentioned she had “‘grabbed him from behind'” which she denied, saying she “simply tapped him on the shoulder.”
The pop star stated that Wembanyama’s “security then backhanded [her] in the face without looking back,” which had knocked her down and caused her glasses to fall off her face.
Spears added that although she is “swarmed by people all the time,” but her security team doesn’t hit them.
