Sam Asghari, the husband of Britney Spears has spoken out after his wife was reportedly slapped in the face by athlete Victor Wembanyama’s security team.
“I am opposed to violence in any form, especially without justification in the defense of yourself or someone else who is unable to defend themselves,” he wrote.
“Self-defense can be unavoidable, but the defense of any woman, especially my wife, is not debatable. I consider my reaction subdued considering what occurred, and I hope the man in question learns a lesson and changes his disregard for women,” he continued.
Britney has filed a report for battery with the Los Angeles Police Department.
“The blame should fall on the coward who did this, the people who hired him without proper vetting, and a systematic culture of disregard for women within sports and entertainment,” the star’s husband added. “I can’t imagine a scenario where an unarmed female fan showing any kind of excitement or appreciation for a celebrity would cause her to be physically assaulted, much less being hit in the face for tapping someone on the shoulder.”
Britney also spoke about the humiliating experience on her page. She is demanding a public apology.
