The singer was accused of slapping a phone out of her housekeeper's hand, prosecutors said, and Britney was investigated over the incident in her home last month.

No action is set to be taken as there is insufficient evidence of the alleged incident and a lack of injury to the housekeeper, according to the Ventura County District Attorney

According to Erik Nasarenko, police were called to Britney's home after it was reported that she and the housekeeper had gotten into a fight over Britney's dog and the veterinary care for the animal.

The call was made on August 16th, with police arriving at her home in Thousand Oaks, outside Los Angeles.

While no injury is said to have come from the incident, it was later said that the screen protector on the housekeeper's phone was damaged.

Britney's lawyer Mathew Rosengart said that the accusation was a "sensationalised tabloid fodder," and "if this involved Jane Doe rather than Britney Spears, it would not have been pursued or covered at all.

"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."

Since Britney Spears' very public breakdown 13 years ago, she has been living under a legal conservatorship controlled by her father.

Britney had been hospitalised after a mental health episode and placed in rehab, when her father petitioned the court for a temporary conservatorship, in 2008, which has controlled all aspects of her life since then.

This week, however, Britney's lawyer has accused her father Jamie of attempting to "extort" his daughter over the conditions that he left the conservatorship.

Last month, Jamie agreed to step down as her conservator but is now seeking $2 million in payouts before withdrawing from his role in the conservatorship.
