Singer Britney Spears’ claims that a member of NBA star Victor Wembanyama’s security team hit her in the face are false, according to Las Vegas police.

According to the AP, police say surveillance video showed that the singer accidentally hit herself and she was not hit in the face by Wembanyama’s bodyguards, as she claims.

Spears did appear to touch Wembanyama from behind and a security guard pushed her hand away, but she was not slapped, according to police.

“Due to the fact that [Wembanyama’s guard] DID NOT willfully or unlawfully use any force or violence upon Britney,” one Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Dept. officer wrote in the report, “and probable cause did not exist an arrest was not made and a Citation was not given.”

Spears went on the warpath after the incident and demanded an apology from the San Antonio Spurs star, which she has yet to receive.

According to TMZ, even Spears’ own bodyguards didn’t defend her, saying that it is not unusual for bodyguards to act this way to protect their clients.

“This is a standard response for most security/bodyguards,” Spears’ bodyguard told TMZ. “It would not be uncommon for them to respond this way.”

Wembanyama kept walking after the incident, but he said Thursday he reacted the way he did because Spears grabbed him and he didn’t know who she was was until later.
