Britney Spears Slapped with Lawsuit by Former Dancer

Posted Tuesday May 6, 2014 4:23 PM GMT

Always a fan of challenging choreography, Britney Spears reportedly collided with a backup dancer on the set of her “Work B*tch” video and now she’s being sued.

According to a report by E!, Dawn Noel has filed a lawsuit against the “Toxic” songstress, claiming she broke her nose and refused to pay the hospital bills.

Noel alleges that Britney showed up for the shoot “in a disheveled and confused state. Although the choreography involving Britney Spears was fairly basic, she was having difficulty learning her moves, performing dance steps and following simple directions.”

Furthermore, at one point Spears “twirled in an unbalanced and reckless manner, arms extended out to her sides and forcefully backhanded” Dawn in the nose.

The collision “made a cracking sound” as Noel’s nose broke. And though Britney’s team assured Dawn that they’d take care of the cost of her injuries, there was no follow-through.

As a result, Dawn Noel is suing Britney Spears for serious physical and emotional damages as well as anxiety and emotional distress.
