Britney Spears (41, "Baby One More Time") commented on Instagram about an incident in which a security guard reportedly punched the singer in the face.
During the confrontation in Las Vegas, she lost her glasses and almost fell to the ground, she wrote. According to Spears, she saw basketball player Victor Wembanyama outside a restaurant in Casino City and approached him to congratulate him on his success.
Spears: "Super embarrassing"
She patted the 19-year-old on the shoulder from behind to get his attention. One of his bodyguards stepped in and hit her in the face with his backhand. "It's super embarrassing to share this story publicly, but it wants to show that people deserve more respect," Spears wrote. There is too much violence in the world.
Someone touched him from behind, said Frenchman Wembanyama, Wemby for short, to journalists on Thursday. He continued to run on the advice of his security guards. Only hours later did he find out that it was Spears.
In her post, the singer thanked investigators in Las Vegas for their support. According to the magazine "People", the police said that officials had investigated on site on Wednesday evening because of possible bodily harm.
Wembanyama is considered an exceptional talent in the NBA. The basketball star from France plays for the San Antonio Spurs in the USA.
