Britney Spears Sued For Breaking Backup Dancer's Nose During Rehearsals

Britney Spears has just been handed a lawsuit from one of her employee's.

The 32 year-old songstress is reportedly being sued for breaking one of her backup dancer's nose in rehearsals.

The injury took place during the filming of Spears' music video for 'Work Bitch' on August 19th (2013) in Woodland Hills, California.

The dancer, Dawn Noel, filed the lawsuit on Monday (May 5th), in which she claims her injury required surgery for a nasal bone fracture and that she had to pay the medical bill even though Britney's team promised to cover all expenses, TMZ reports.

Dawn reportedly said herself and the other dancers perfected the choreography hours before Spears' arrival, but when the 'Toxic' singer showed up she was "in a disheveled and confused state."

Spears allegedly had great difficulty executing the dance routine and when she twirled while unbalanced, her hand hit Dawn in the face very hard.

According to the dancer, the force of the impact was so great, everyone in the room apparently heard a cracking sound.

Spears only said "I'm sorry," before continuing with rehearsals. Dawn could only withstand the pain for another 30 minutes and reportedly visited a doctor to examine the injury. The diagnosis was a nasal bone fracture which allegedly needed surgery.

Spears' reps and the Reign Deer Entertainment Company promised to take care of all medical bills, but after being told the bills will not be paid for, Dawn decided to go ahead with the lawsuit.
