If she said she wanted to break your nose, would you hold it against her?
That’s what a backup dancer to Britney Spears is doing, filing a lawsuit against the singer claiming her nose was broken in a rehearsal.
According to the BBC, dancer Dawn Noel claims Spears couldn’t follow “simple directions” while rehearsing for her video for “Work Bitch” and ended up backhanding Noel across the face during one move.
As a result, she received multiple injuries, including nasal bone fractures that necessitated surgery, as advised by doctors.
She’s seeking damages from Spears and from Reign Deer Entertainment, which purportedly promised to pay Noel’s medical bills but did not.
Noel’s lawyer is also seeking to receive compensation in the lawsuit for loss of earnings.
Spears has not responded to the suit. She’s currently in midst of a long residency at the Planet Hollywood Casino in Las Vegas.
