On Thursday, Britney Spears utilized her Instagram platform to share details about the alleged slap incident that reportedly occurred at Catch restaurant in the ARIA Hotel in Las Vegas.
In her post, the “Baby One More Time” singer expressed that she has experienced traumatic events before and has had her fair share of such experiences.

Continuing her account, Spears explained that after spotting the athlete again at a different hotel’s restaurant, she made the decision to approach him and offer her congratulations on his achievements. Due to the loud environment, she tapped him on the shoulder to get his attention.
The singer clarified that she is aware of the player’s statement where he mentioned her “grabbing him from behind,” but she insisted that she simply tapped him on the shoulder.
