I didn’t deserve to be slapped by security

Britney Spears fired back at a radio station for making derogatory comments about her after she was slapped by NBA star Victor Wembanyama’s security guard.

In a late Tuesday Instagram video, the “Toxic” singer claimed that the news report stated she “deserved to be smacked” and dismissed the assault as security “doing their job and protecting their client.” This prompted her to share her own experience with fame.

“I’ve been with the most famous people in the world. At one point, *NSYNC would have girls literally throwing themselves at them,” she said.

“On my way into the place, I was knocked down by three 12-year-olds trying to get my picture. Not once did my security touch them or even come near them.”

Spears, who is 41 years old, also expressed her dissatisfaction with people saying she “deserved to be hit because no woman ever deserves to be hit.”

The Grammy winner did not disclose the name of the radio station or host who made the alleged comments.

Spears acknowledged that she received an apology 30 minutes after the July 5 incident while dining at Catch in Las Vegas. However, she noted that she has not yet received a public apology from 19-year-old Wembanyama or the security guard involved, Damian Smith.

Initially, when news of the incident broke, the professional athlete claimed that the pop star had grabbed him, which led to the aggressive response from his security. However, leaked footage later confirmed Spears’ side of the story, stating that she had simply tapped him on the shoulder.


Following the incident, Spears filed a battery report with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. However, upon concluding the investigation, the police decided not to press criminal charges against Smith.

According to the police report obtained by TheFantasyTimes, an officer stated that the decision was made because Smith did not willfully or unlawfully use any force or violence against Britney. Therefore, there was no probable cause to make an arrest or issue a citation.

The author of “The Woman in Me” memoir later expressed feeling “helpless” in the situation and compared it to her 13-year conservatorship.

“I don’t feel like I have been treated as an equal person in this country,” she wrote on Instagram last Friday. “Of course, when I watched the video myself… the people who swarmed around me when they heard me get hit made me feel like I mattered!!!”
