Only a day after Britney Spears was slapped allegedly in the face by the security guard of Victor Wembanyama when she was trying to pose for a photo with the NBA star in Vegas according to, TMZ has FINALLY released a detailed statement about the incident.
On July 6th, the ‘Baby One More Time’ took to Instagram and 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. I later went to a restaurant at a different hotel and saw him again. His security then backhanded me in the face without looking back in front of a crowd. Nearly knocking me down and causing my glasses off my face.”
The pop star did admit that she understands how it feels to be surrounded by so many fans, but at the same time also mentioned that her team does not really handle such situations like the way Victor’s security team handles crowds.
Spears further shared, “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.”
Britney labeled the entire incident ‘super embarrassing to share with the world,’ but at the same also noted that considering the incident is already of public knowledge, she wanted to address the same herself.
She mentioned, “I think it’s important to share this story and to urge people in the public eye set an example and treat all people with respect. Physical violence is happening too much in this world, often behind closed doors. I stand with all the victims, and my heart goes out to all of you!!!”
The 41-year-old pop singer also added that she is definitely looking for a proper public apology from Victor as well as his team.
Thanking all her fans, Spears concluded her statement with the words, “I cherish the tremendous amounts of love and support I am receiving at the moment. Thank you to the Las Vegas PD and the detectives for their support.”
