Britney Spears is not being charged in a recent incident in which she was accused of battery by a housekeeper, TMZ reports and Variety confirms. The Ventura County District Attorney’s Office reportedly failed to bring charges on the grounds that there was “insufficient evidence of injury to the housekeeper or significant damage to the phone.”
The Spears housekeeper filed a battery complaint against the singer in August, alleging Spears beat her during an argument over Spears’ dogs. In a statement to Pitchfork, Spears’ attorney Mathew S. Rosengart described the incident of the offense as “exaggerated sensational tabloid fodder”.
The allegations came as Spears’ struggle for exemption from long-term legal conservatoire membership came to a head. After Spears hired a new legal team and requested to remove her father Jamie from the Conservatory, Jamie Spears confirmed that he would resign but did not provide a plan or schedule for it.
