No charges will be filed against the person involved in the Britney Spears-Victor Wembanyama incident. The Las Vegas Police Department tell authorities have concluded their investigation into the alleged battery altercation from Wednesday night.
Spears addressed the “embarrassing” and “traumatic” situation in an emotional statement on Thursday. The superstar claimed she was “backhanded” in “the face” by someone on Wembanyama’s security team when she tried to approached the San Antonio Spurs player to “congratulate him on his success.” Wembanyama was the NBA’s 2023 No. 1 overall pick.
The NBA player spoke to ESPN about the incident, explaining he was walking into a restaurant with team security when everything went down. The French-born Wembanyama, who has been touted as a basketball phenom, is in Las Vegas for the NBA’s Summer League.
