VENTURA, California – District Attorney Erik Nasarenko announced today that Britney Spears will not be charged with any crimes related to an incident that occurred at her residence involving her housekeeper.
Misdemeanor Unit Supervisor Blake Heller thoroughly reviewed the case submitted by the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office and declined to file charges based upon insufficient evidence that a crime had occurred and the lack of injury to the housekeeper or significant damage to the phone. On August 16, 2021, Ventura County Sheriff’s deputies responded to Spears’ residence based on a call for service. Spears’ housekeeper later reported that she had an argument with Spears’ regarding the veterinary care of Spears’ dog. During the argument, Spears was alleged to have slapped a phone out of the housekeeper’s hand. The housekeeper indicated that the screen protector to the phone was damaged. The housekeeper had no visible injuries.
