Britney Spears to Avoid Jail Time in Alleged Battery Case as District Attorney Will Not Charge Her
Last month, Britney Spears had an alleged interaction with her housekeeper. However, no charges will be brought against the pop star because there wasn’t sufficient evidence against her.
On August 16, 2021, Britney Spears, 39, was accused of battery against her housekeeper. Ventura County Sheriff's Office (VCSO) deputies responded to the star’s home after the alleged incident.
A VCSO spokesperson told “E! News” at the time that the employee had left by the time deputies arrived at the residence. The housekeeper had allegedly gone to file a complaint with the Sheriff's Office.
The District Attorney’s (DA) office later revealed that the housekeeper reported that she and Spears argued about the star’s dog veterinary care. Amid the incident, the pop singer allegedly attacked the employee.
The housekeeper claimed the “Oops!... I did it again” singer slapped her phone out of her hand. The alleged attack reportedly left the employee’s phone’s screen protector damaged.
According to a “TMZ” source linked to Spears, the pop star allegedly denied any physical altercation. The insider also claimed the pop singer’s team was assured by the Sheriff's Department that the case would go nowhere.
The Ventura County District Attorney's Office has since declined to charge Spears concerning the incident. On September 1, 2021, District Attorney Erik Nasarenko made the announcement during a press release.
Britney Spears’ lawyer, Mathew Rosengart, calls on her dad, Jamie, to “resign now” in a new statement: “Britney Spears will not be bullied or extorted by her father. Nor does Mr. Spears have the right to try to hold his daughter hostage by setting the terms of his removal.” pic.twitter.com/EYV6ikoOpr— Nicholas Hautman (@nickhautman) August 31, 2021
He said Spears wasn’t going to face charges due to "insufficient evidence that a crime had occurred and the lack of injury to the housekeeper or significant damage to the phone."
Whereas, the Misdemeanor Unit Supervisor Blake Heller's concluded that Spears’s housekeeper had "no visible injuries" from the alleged altercation. Mathew Rosengart, the singer’s lawyer, supported the DA’s decision.

The lawyer felt the office had done right by declining to charge his client. Rosengart felt the whole story was just sensationalized by tabloids and wouldn’t have been a big deal if it had been about an ordinary person.
The court battle rages on even though the “Toxic” star’s father had agreed to step down from the conservatorship sooner or later. Her lawyers had to file paperwork accusing her father of asking for $2 million to step down.
The filing stated how Rosengart has refused to have his client extorted by her father. The attorney felt the singer’s father had already gained millions from the 13-year conservatorship.
