On Thursday, the American singer-songwriter took to her Instagram page to shed some light on the slap incident. In her lengthy statement, she mentioned that the traumatic experiences are “not new” to her but that she was “not prepared” for what happened Wednesday night.
Britney claimed that she merely tapped the athlete to take a photo with him. She insisted that she didn’t grab the French basketball player as he had told the press earlier this week on Thursday.
The music icon went on to say, “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 to fall off my face.”
Following the Vegas slap incident, Britney filed a report for battery with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. The cops have decided not to file any criminal charges against Victor’s security guard Damian Smith after the conclusion of the investigation.
An officer told Page Six that the decision was made “due to the fact that [Smith] did not willfully or unlawfully use any force or violence upon Britney and probable cause did not exist an arrest was not made and a citation was not given.”
