The Ventura County District Attorney’s Office cited a lack of evidence or injury in the case
Britney Spears will not face charges stemming from a recent incident where she was accused of battery by a housekeeper, as TMZ and Variety report.
The Ventura County District Attorney’s Office reportedly did not file charges due to “insufficient evidence lack of injury to the housekeeper or significant damage to the phone.”
Spears’ housekeeper filed a battery complaint against the singer in August, alleging that Spears had struck her during an argument about Spears’ dogs.
In a statement to The News, Spears’ lawyer Mathew S. Rosengart called the misdemeanor incident “overblown sensational tabloid fodder.”
The allegations emerged as Spears’ fight to free herself of a long-term legal conservatorship has come to a head.
After Spears hired a new legal team and filed to remove her father James “Jamie” Spears from the conservatorship, Jamie confirmed that he would step down, but did not indicate a plan or timeline for doing so
