Britney Spears demands a public apology from NBA star Victor Wembanyama after Vegas slap incident
On Thursday, the Baby One More Time singer took to her Instagram page to spill the beans on the alleged slap incident that took place in Las Vegas at Catch restaurant in the ARIA Hotel.
Spears wrote, “Traumatic experiences are not new to me and I have had my fair share of them. I was not prepared for what happened to me last night. I recognized an athlete in my hotel lobby as I was heading to dinner.”
She continued, “I later went to a restaurant at a different hotel and saw him again. I decided to approach him and congratulate him on his success. It was really loud, so I tapped him on the shoulder to get his attention.”
The Toxic singer further added, “I am away of the players [sic] statement where her mentions ‘I grabbed him from behind’ but I simply tapped him on the shoulder. His security then back handed me in the face without looking back, in front of a crowd. Nearly knocking me down and causing my glasses off my face.”
She went on to say, “I get swarmed by people all the time. In fact, that night. I was swarmed by a group of at least 20 fans. My security team didn’t hit any of them.”
In her lengthy note, Britney also stated that the whole ordeal was “super embarrassing,” and she mentioned that “it’s important to share this story and to urge people in the public eye to set an example and treat all people with respect.”
