Pop superstar Britney Spears is under investigation for allegedly hitting her housekeeper, according to the Ventura County Sheriff’s office.
The employee alleges that Spears confronted her when she returned to the house and slapped her phone out of her hands.
Meanwhile, the singer’s lawyer denied the allegation and said it was “overblown”.
“This is overblown sensational tabloid fodder — nothing more than a fabricated ‘he said she said’ regarding a cell phone, with no striking and obviously no injury whatsoever,” Mathew Rosengart, attorney for Spears, said in a statement to CNN. “Anyone can make an accusation, but this should have been closed immediately.”
Spears, who has been embroiled in a court battle with her father over ending her conservatorship, had hired Rosengart as her lawyer last month.
Early this month, Britney’s father Jamie Spears agreed to step down from his role as conservator of the pop superstar’s estate. Jamie Spears’ decision to step down comes just weeks after the singer’s new legal team filed a petition to remove him and replace him with a CPA.
