Britney Spears is being investigated for allegedly striking an employee this week, it has been reported.

E! News states that the Sheriff’s Office at Ventura County has said that they are looking into a “dispute” that may have occurred on the morning of Monday, August 16.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, the employee states that they returned from the vets and had a “confrontation” with the ‘Slumber Party’ singer, which resulted in the star “hitting the hand” of the employee and slapping their phone out of their hand.

Although the employee reportedly says they were not hurt, a complaint has been filed, and the Office is investigating whether to charge for misdemeanour battery.

Spears allegedly did not wish to talk to deputies when they tried to contact her, but her lawyer Matthew Rosengart has emailed the press to call the claims “sensational tabloid fodder”.

“(The incident is) nothing more than an overblown alleged misdemeanor involving a ‘he said she said’ about a cell phone,” he wrote (via NBC News). “[There was] no striking and obviously no injury whatsoever. Anyone can make an accusation. This should have been closed immediately.”

Spears is in the middle of a lengthy conservatorship battle to remove the people that she believes are “abusive” and controlling, and have been in charge of her finances and personal affairs since 2008.

Among numerous allegations, Spears has stated that she has been pretending she has been happy with her situation for years when she is not, and that has conservators won’t let her remove an IUD which prevents her from having another child.

Her father, Jamie Spears, has said that he is willing to step down, but that he wants to oversee a transition to another conservator before he does.
