Britney Spears’ housekeeper has filed a battery complaint against the singer with the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office, Variety reports. The alleged incident occurred on Monday evening (August 16) at Spears’ home. The housekeeper reportedly accused Spears of speaking to her on a cell phone during an argument.

When reached by Pitchfork, Britney Spears attorney Mathew S. Rosengart stated:

This is exaggerated, sensational tabloid fodder – nothing more than a fabricated “He said, she said” in relation to a cell phone, without any blows and obviously without any injury. Anyone can make an allegation, but this should have been closed immediately.

To his credit, the sheriff’s office has itself recognized that the incident was classified as a “very minor offense …” and confirmed that “there were no injuries”. If Britney Spears hadn’t been involved, it would never have been reported.

Variety reports that Ventura County MPs will present their findings from the complaint to the prosecutor.
