Pop star Britney Spears will not face any charges after her housekeeper alleged that the singer had slapped a phone out of her hand, reports AP. Prosecutors did not file a misdemeanour battery charge due to lack of evidence.

Ventura County District Attorney Erik Nasarenko said that there was insufficient evidence to establish that a crime had occurred. In a statement, he also said there was no injury to the housekeeper or any significant damage to the phone.

The housekeeper had made the allegation after a dispute with Spears on August 16 over the veterinary care of the pop star’s dog. The woman had called and alleged that Spears slapped her phone out of her hand.

Spears has a home in Thousand Oaks, California northwest of Los Angeles.

Spears’  attorney Mathew Rosen had called these charges ‘manufactured’ and ‘overblown’ after information emerged that the sheriff’s deputies were investigating the case. “Anyone can make an accusation but this should have been closed immediately,” Rosen had said.

The district attorney’s announcement came a day after Rosen and Spears filed new documents alleging that her father was keeping his role in the conservatorship that has controlled her life and money for 13 years because he was trying to earn some $2 million more in fees.

Earlier on Tuesday, Spears and Rosen had said that her father trying to get about $2 million in payments would amount to extortion. Britney’s father James Spear has sought $2 million before stepping down from the conservatorship that controls her life and money.

“Britney Spears will not be extorted,” the filing said. “Mr. Spears’s blatant attempt to barter suspension and removal in exchange for approximately $2 million in payments, on top of the millions already reaped from Ms. Spears’s estate by Mr. Spears and his associates, is a non-starter.”

James Spears’ representatives did not respond to a request for comment, but have repeatedly said that his dealings in the conservatorship have always been upright and in the best interests of his daughter.
