Britney Spears has spoken about her recent incident with a member of Victor Wembanyama’s security and her reaction immediately afterward.
Surveillance video obtained by TMZ has been released that appears to show Spears punching herself after the pop star’s hand was knocked off the San Antonio Spurs’ first draft pick.
After the incident, Spears, in a British accent, yelled, «That’s America to you. Fuck y’all.»
In an Instagram post on Friday night, she continued to throw shades at the security guard, saying her reaction was «a scream on every level.»

«I am aware of the player’s statement in which he mentions ‘I grabbed him from behind’, but I just tapped him on the shoulder. His security then punched me in the face without looking back, in front of a crowd. He almost knocked me over, causing me to my glasses come off my face,» Spears wrote in a statement posted on her social media.
«People surround me all the time. In fact, that night. I was surrounded by a group of at least 20 fans. My security team didn’t hit any of them.»

Wembanyama told reporters earlier that he did not know Spears was the person involved in the incident and that he remembered being grabbed from behind before his security guard «pushed» her.
“I didn’t see what happened because I was walking straight and I didn’t stop. That person grabbed me from behind, not by the shoulder. He grabbed me from behind,” she said. «I only know that security pushed her. I don’t know how hard, but security pushed her. I didn’t stop to look, so I was able to go inside and have a nice dinner.»
