Britney Spears’ assault case 'handed over to prosecutors' after alleged attack on housekeeper

BRITNEY Spears' assault case has been handed over to prosecutors after she allegedly attacked a housekeeper.

The 39-year-old is currently being investigated after she allegedly hit her housekeeper at her home last week in an argument over her dog.


Britney allegedly slapped her staffer’s phone away from her hand after she took one of the singer's dogs to the vet, according to TMZ.

According to PA, Captain Eric Buschow, of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office, has confirmed the case has been handed to prosecutors.

The Ventura County District Attorney’s office will now decide if Britney should be charged with an offence.

TMZ states the mum-of-two allegedly slapped her housekeeper’s phone away from her grasp after she took one of her dogs to the vet, and Ventura County Sheriff's deputies responded to the scene.

Brit’s employee reportedly told the cops that she took one of the singer’s dogs to get checked out because she claimed she wasn’t happy with how the pet was being treated.

She claimed upon her return, she and Britney got into a disagreement about the pup’s health, allegedly leading to the 39-year-old knocking the housekeeper’s phone right out of her hands.

The housekeeper filed a report at the Sheriff's station after the alleged incident.

Britney and her team denied the claims made against her and said the housekeeper's making it all up.

A source told TMZ that cops allegedly assured Britney’s team that the housekeeper’s case would "go nowhere."

It comes as Britney scored a major victory in the ongoing conservatorship case against her father Jamie.

Dad Jamie agreed to step down as conservator of her estate earlier this month after controlling her life for over 13 years.
