Britney Spears is coming out following an alleged attack that was committed against her by a security guard working for Victor Wembanyama. The pop artist stated that she had first seen Wembanyama as she was heading down to dinner in the foyer of her hotel in Las Vegas. She reported that she had seen him later that evening at a restaurant located at a different hotel.
Spears stated that she spotted and recognized Wembanyama and wished to extend her congratulations on his many achievements. This is what she wrote:
It was really loud, so I tapped him on the shoulder to get his attention; His security then backhanded me in the face without looking back in front of a crowd.
Wembanyama, who was picked by the San Antonio Spurs recently, told reporters on Thursday that when he was walking down a corridor, someone who had been attempting to gain his attention “grabbed me from behind.” Wembanyama was recently acquired by the Spurs as a free agent. He said that security “pushed her away,” but he also mentioned that he didn’t witness what happened since he had been instructed not to stop so that a mob wouldn’t build around him.
In her answer, Spears addressed the accusations made by Wembanyama and refuted the notion that she “grabbed him from behind.” She went on to criticize the actions of the security officers, pointing out that she is frequently surrounded by admirers and that she was even on that particular night.
Wembanyama stated that he was unaware of “how much force” was used and that he didn’t discover the identity of the individual until many hours later.
The Las Vegas Police Department acknowledged in a statement to CBS News that it dispatched to a battery situation in the area about 11 p.m. on Wednesday night. Still, they were unable to give any other details about the event. The department said that there were no arrests made and that no tickets were given out. Britney stated that Wenbanyama, the security guy, or the Spurs had not issued a public apology to her for the incident.
