US pop star, Britney Spears is currently under investigation after one of her domestic workers accused her of striking her.
The employer made the accusations after a dispute with Britney at the latter’s home during which Ms Spears allegedly slapped the employee’s mobile phone off her hand.
However, Britney’s lawyer, Mathew S Rosengart, has denied the accusations. According to his statement to the BBC, he said: “it was ‘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,” he said.
“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’.”
The Ventura Country Sheriff’s Office are said to be on the matter and will send its inquiry findings to prosecutors for consideration of misdemeanour battery charges.
