A short while ago, a video of Britney Spears, 41, being slapped by the security guard of NBA player Victor Wembanyama surfaced on social media. The Toxic singer can be seen reaching out to the San Antonio Spurs star from behind in the video that the media outlet was able to obtain.
Before Victor’s bodyguard Damian Smith entered the scene, the Grammy winner used the phrase “Excuse me, sir.” Soon after, Smith flung his arm back towards her face, causing her sunglasses to fall off. For additional information about the slap incident, keep scrolling.
Video of Britney Spears’ slap incident emerges on social media
The ‘Princess of Pop’ Britney Spears was recently shown on camera being struck in the face by NBA player Victor Wembanyama’s bodyguard. She came up behind the basketball player.
Soon after, Damian Smith, a security guard for Victor, spoke up and threw his arm back in her direction. The crowd around the Till The World Ends singer can be heard shouting in shock at that point.
Then, in the footage, Sam Asghari, who also observed the slap event and was wearing a white and black patterned shirt, can be seen racing over to Victor’s security guard Damian. Spears, though, made an effort to maintain her composure. That’s America for you! she can be heard screaming in the video while speaking with a British accent. F-k you everyone.
The Hold Me Closer hitmaker and her group soon after the slapped walked to the Catch restaurant in Las Vegas. She can be seen quietly seated at her table in the collection of images that the media outlet TMZ has obtained. At one point, she even grinned.
However, a witness claimed that Spears appeared to be in disbelief and was “extremely agitated” by the confrontation. Later, she discussed the entire episode on social media.

The American singer-songwriter clarified the slap incident on her Instagram page on Thursday. She acknowledged in her extensive statement that while the terrible experiences were “not new” to her, she was “unprepared” for what occurred on Wednesday night.
Britney insisted that she did nothing more than tap the athlete to pose for a picture. As the French basketball player had said to the press earlier this week on Thursday, she reiterated that she did not grab him.
The legendary musician said, “His security then backhanded me in the face in front of a crowd without turning around. bringing my glasses close to falling off my face and almost knocking me over.”
Britney reported battery to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department after the Vegas slap incident. After the inquiry is over, the police have decided not to charge Damian Smith, the security guard for Victor.
The decision was made, an officer informed Page Six, “due to the fact that [Smith] did not willfully or unlawfully use any force or violence upon Britney and probable cause did not exist, an arrest was not made and a citation was not given.”
