Britney Spears' dogs were taken from her home earlier this month, sparking the alleged battery incident between the singer and her housekeeper that is now being investigated.
The 39-year-old pop star dog sitter and housekeeper have allegedly accused Britney of neglecting her pets and removed the dogs from her Thousand Oaks, CA mansion after one of the pups fell sick.
Britney's dog sitter allegedly took her two dogs to the vet two weeks ago but never returned them. Sources claim the sitter — who is also a nurse — believed the pets weren't safe at the Grammy winner's home.
On August 10 — days before the alleged altercation took place between Britney and her housekeeper — Spears called the Ventura County Sheriff's Office to report an alleged theft.
On Monday, Britney allegedly confronted her housekeeper about the whereabouts of her dogs. She reportedly suspected that her dad Jamie Spears — who allegedly pays the housekeeper — was somehow involved in their disappearance.
Insiders claim the housekeeper showed Britney a picture of the dog, who had just vomited, and threw out the accusation that Spears had been neglecting her pups — which allegedly set Britney off.
The Ventura Country Sheriff's Department confirmed to Radar, a staff member came into their office on Monday to report an alleged incident that occurred at 10:25 AM involving Britney.
We're told the employee claimed the singer allegedly "struck her" during their heated confrontation.
The case is now being handed off to the District Attorney's Office, who will decide if Britney will be hit with a misdemeanor battery charge.
According to reports, the star is allegedly refusing to speak to cops — which would be smart considering she's hired herself a high-profile attorney to fight her conservatorship battle.
Britney denies the incident with the housekeeper took place.
This is the second police incident involving Spears in the past two months, but she was the one who went to the cops last time.
As Radar exclusively reported, deputies arrived at the star's home just hours before her conservatorship hearing in June over a "civil issue."
Hours later, Britney gave a harrowing testimony about her 13-year conservatorship and expressed that she wanted her dad removed ASAP.
Jamie stepped down earlier this month, but his motive has raised some flags.
Britney's conservatorship fight continues in court next month.
