The employee left the house and drove to a local station in Thousand Oaks, where she filed a report with the Sheriff’s Office. The spokesperson said Spears “wouldn’t speak with” authorities to share her side.
Her attorney, Mathew Rosengart, told NBC News that the case is “nothing more than an overblown alleged misdemeanor involving a ‘he said she said’ about a cell phone, with no striking and obviously no injury whatsoever.” He added, “Anyone can make an accusation. This should have been closed immediately.”
Spears also made headlines this week after the hosts of the Stitcher podcast Toxic: The Britney Spears Story speculated that she had secretly married her one-time fiancé Jason Trawick, but divorced him in 2012. The podcasters pointed to a legal document, obtained by E! News, that seemingly revealed she paid $9,150 to the Law Offices of Alexandra Leichter for a “consultation dissolution of marriage.”
However, Trawick appeared to deny the rumors this week when texting friend Billy Bush. “Jason Trawick says, ‘I believe you would have known if I was married,'” Billy recounted. “‘But you would have made a perfect usher.'”
