Britney Spears under investigation over alleged attack on staff

·1-min read

Britney Spears is under investigation over assault charges after a staff member claimed the singer struck her, authorities have said.

Deputies attended Spears' home in Southern California after a member of her staff reported a dispute had taken place on Monday night, the Ventura County Sheriff's Office said.

No injuries were recorded and reports taken by deputies will be handed over to prosecutors for consideration, the sheriff's office added.

Spears' attorney Matthew Rosengart said in an email that the investigation is "overblown sensational tabloid fodder - nothing more than a manufactured 'he said she said' regarding a cellphone".
