Ventura County Sheriff’s Office confirmed to USA TODAY that Britney Spears is being investigated after a staff member at her home attested the Pop icon struck her.
The artist’s legal advisor Matthew Rosengart denied the claim in an email, calling it “overblown sensational tabloid fodder — nothing more than a manufactured ‘he said she said’ regarding a cellphone, with no striking and obviously no injury whatsoever.”
“Anyone can make an accusation, but this should have been closed immediately,” Rosengart added.
Capt. Buschow tells PEOPLE, “Ultimately that investigation will be forwarded to the attorney’s office for review. It’s a minor misdemeanor battery [investigation],” adding that there were no injuries reported.
Spears hired Rosengart last month as she tries to end her dad’s hold over her life and accounts, professing to have been “abused.” Recently, Jamie Spears consented to venture down as her conservator in his “best interests” and intends to “prepare for an orderly transition to a new conservator.”
