The singer was investigated after being accused of misdemeanor battery by her former housekeeper.
There's some new details about Britney Spears' legal trouble. Earlier this month, the 39-year-old singer was accused of misdemeanor battery by a disgruntled employee, who claimed she slapped the phone out of her hands during an argument.
According to several outlets, the pair argued over the wellbeing of Britney's dogs after the housekeeper took them to the vet. The employee then filed a report with the Ventura County Sheriff's Department for alleged misdemeanor battery, indicating damage to the phone's screen protector. However, she had no visible injuries.
On Wednesday, the Ventura County District Attorney's Office announced that the hitmaker will not face charges. According to a press release, the decision to not press charges came based "upon insufficient evidence that a crime had occurred and the lack of injury to the housekeeper or significant damage to the phone."
In a statement, Britney's lawyer Mathew Rosengart said, "... This was nothing more than sensationalized-tabloid fodder — an overblown 'he said, she said' regarding a cell phone. If this involved Jane Doe rather than Britney Spears it would not have been pursued or covered at all."
"This should never have made it this far and we are glad the DA's Office has done the right thing", Rosengart added. "Sadly, it is apparent that some have learned nothing from the past, and we sincerely hope the media and others will be more respectful of Ms. Spears in the future."
According to what a source told People, Britney was reunited with her dogs over the weekend after they were previously removed from her home. "Her dogs are a sensitive breed that often has health issues. She has gotten clear instructions about how to care for the dogs now", the insider explained.
The source also stated that the housekeeper "no longer works for her."
