The Ventura County District Attorney's office said Wednesday that Britney Spears would not face prosecution after her housekeeper accused her of smacking a phone out of the housekeeper's hand during a violent fight.

Spears was accused of getting into an altercation with her housekeeper over veterinarian care for her dog, BuzzFeed said. The housekeeper said the fight became violent, resulting in her phone being broken. The Ventura County Sheriff's Department was dispatched to the pop star's residence.

Deputies started investigating misdemeanor battery, and the case was subsequently sent over to prosecutors for evaluation.

According to a statement, Misdemeanor Unit Supervisor Blake Heller of the Ventura County District Attorney's Office evaluated the case. Prosecutors declined to press charges on Wednesday, citing the "insufficient evidence that a crime had occurred and the lack of injury to the housekeeper or significant damage to the phone."

Spears' housekeeper claimed last month that the singer knocked her phone out of her hand during an argument about her dog's veterinary treatment.

According to the district attorney's office, the housekeeper told deputies that the phone's screen protector had been destroyed.

"If this involved Jane Doe rather than Britney Spears it would not have been pursued or covered at all," Spears' lawyer Mathew Rosengart, said in a statement obtained by CBS News. "Anyone can make an accusation, but this should never have made it this far and we are glad the DA's Office has done the right thing."

Meanwhile, Britney Spears is embroiled in a public feud over her court-ordered conservatorship with her father, Jamie Spears. The next hearing will take place on September 29.

Spears recently enlisted Rosengart's help in her battle to get her father, Jamie Spears, removed from her conservatorship. In a new court filing in August obtained by The Rolling Stone, Rosengart accused Jamie Spears of attempting to extort $2 million from the singer's estate in exchange for the singer's release from conservatorship.

"The status quo is no longer tolerable, and Britney Spears will not be extorted," the filing read. "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."

The singer's camp went further to say that the Spears patriarch's conservatorship continues to impair Britney's mental health, well-being, and ability to continue her career. It states that the father is “obligated" to accommodate their request to let a professional take over his role and that he should shoulder his legal expenses, not the estate, had he decided to fight the move.
