Victor Wembanyama’s Security Guard Won’t Be Charged After Britney Spears Incident

The investigation into the claimed assault on Britney Spears has come to an end.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department will not press charges against Victor Wembanyama’s security guard after he got into a fight with the pop star on July 5. Authorities said on July 7 that the guard will not be charged.

Britney said before that the security guard at a Las Vegas hotel attacked her when she tried to talk to Victor and “congratulate him on his success.”

“It was really loud, so I tapped him on the shoulder to get his attention,” the 41-year-old wrote on Instagram Stories on July 6. “His security then backhanded me in the face without looking back in front of a crowd. Nearly knocking me down and causing my glasses off my face.”

Britney said it was “super embarrassing to share with the world,” but she said she wanted to talk about it to “urge people in the public eye set an example and treat all people with respect.”

“Physical violence is happening too much in this world,” she said next. “Often behind closed doors. I stand with all the victims, and my heart goes out to all of you!!!”

Victor, who plays for the San Antonio Spurs, said he didn’t see Britney or the fight but remembered that “one person was calling me.”

“That person is calling ‘Sir, sir,’ and that person grabbed me from behind,” he told reporters on July 6, as reported by KENS 5 News. “I didn’t see what happened because I was walking straight, and I was told don’t stop, but that person grabbed me from behind. Not on my shoulder; she grabbed me from behind.”

The 19-year-old remembers that he thought the interaction was “no big deal” until he found out about it later.

“Then the security of the Spurs told me it was Britney Spears,” he said. “First, I was like, ‘No, you’re joking.’ Yeah, it turns out it was Britney Spears. I didn’t know because I never saw her face. I just kept walking straight.”
