"I recognized an athlete in my hotel lobby as I was heading to dinner. I later went to a restaurant at a different hotel and saw him again," she wrote. "I decided to approach him and congratulate him on his success. It was really loud, so I tapped him on the shoulder to get his attention."

Spears then added she was "aware" of the Wembanyama's claims that she had "grabbed him from behind," however, she insisted it was only a tap.

"His security then back handed me in the face without looking back, in front of a crowd," she continued.

"I get swarmed by people all the time," the '00s icon admitted. "In fact, that night. I was swarmed by a group of at least 20 fans. My security team didn't hit any of them."
