Britney Spears Denies Allegations of Assault by NBA Player’s Security

Britney Spears has refuted claims made by Victor Wembanyama, a player for the San Antonio Spurs, regarding an incident at a popular restaurant in Las Vegas. Wembanyama stated that Spears “grabbed” him from behind, but Spears clarified that she merely tapped him on the shoulder to congratulate him on his success.

In a lengthy statement posted to her social media, Spears explained that after spotting Wembanyama in the lobby of her hotel, she ran into him again at the restaurant. However, when she tapped him on the shoulder, she was allegedly backhanded in the face by his security without any provocation.

Spears emphasized that she is frequently swarmed by fans and that her security team has never resorted to physical violence. The singer’s statement contradicts Wembanyama’s version of events, in which he claimed to have been grabbed from behind.

The purpose of Spears sharing her story is to encourage individuals in the public eye to treat all people with respect and set a positive example. She called the incident “super embarrassing” and expressed solidarity with all victims of physical violence.

The incident was initially reported by TMZ, stating that Spears had been backhanded by a member of Wembanyama’s security. The security guard in question, identified as Damian Smith – the Spurs’ Director of Team Security – allegedly pushed Spears’ hand away, causing her hand to strike her own face.

Spears also filed a police report, confirmed by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. Spears’ husband, Sam Asghari, took to social media to express his opposition to violence and defend his wife. He criticized the security guard’s actions and called for a change in the culture of sports and entertainment regarding the treatment of women.

Wembanyama, widely regarded as a top NBA prospect, was drafted by the Spurs with the first overall pick in the 2023 NBA Draft. He is currently in Las Vegas for the NBA Summer League and is scheduled to make his debut for the Spurs on Friday night against the Charlotte Hornets.
