Questions are being raised regarding Britney Spears’ pet dogs’ health. Singer also denied striking an employee who took them to the vet.
The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office said Thursday that the purported altercation happened Monday before officers were called to the Spears residence after the employee claimed the “Toxic” singer became violent during a disagreement. The dispute reportedly stemmed from Spears taking umbrage over how one pup was treated.
Spears is kept away from her dogs since they were taken to the vet, reports say.
Now, TMZ has reported alleged darker details about the dogs’ health prior to the housekeeper’s trip to get them checked out. Per sources, the report claims one of the canines suffers from digestive issues and both dogs are fed a specific type of food.
The housekeeper’s concern grew when the dogs appeared to be dehydrated from the lack of water. The dogs had also been eating scraps of food from the table, insiders claimed.
The singer’s attorney denied claims that she struck the housekeeper in a statement to Fox News earlier this week.
“This is nothing more than sensational tabloid fodder – an alleged misdemeanor involving a ‘he said she said’ regarding a cell phone, with no striking and obviously no injury whatsoever,” the note reads. “Anyone can make an accusation. This should have been closed immediately.”
“The Sherriff’s office itself has said the incident was classified as a ‘very minor misdemeanor…’ and said ‘there were no injuries,’” her attorney added.
