Britney Spears Shares Topless Photos Once Again Amid Assault Allegations

Britney Spears shared more topless photos of herself on Instagram on Thursday, as lawyers for the star spoke out against assault allegations leveled at her.

The pop icon took to the image-sharing platform to post a set of pictures that showed her wearing white bikini bottoms and red boots as she cupped her bosom.

In the images, which appeared to come from the same set she posted earlier in the week, the singer, 39, was also seen clutching a red rose.

Captioning the snapshots, Spears shared a quote attributed to actress Sophia Loren, which read: "There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age."

Hours later, the mother-of-two returned to Instagram to post video footage of herself dancing to the 1992 Prince track "Sexy MF."

Earlier in the week, she posted a lengthy explanation for her recent stream of semi-nude photos, writing: "I bet you're wondering why I'd expose my body NOW ... well it's because I was born into this world naked and I honestly feel like the weight of the would has been on my shoulders and it's made me view myself that way !!!!

"I wanted to see myself in a lighter way ... naked ... like the way I was born and to me looking back at my pictures when I shoot it's insane the psychology in seeing myself in my purest form gives evidence that pain ... hurt ... tears ... and heavy burdens aren't who I am.

"I am a woman .... a beautiful ... sensitive woman who needs to look at myself in my purest form !!! No ... I'm not going to do topless pics for the rest of my life cause that would get boring but it sure as hell helps when you need to be enlightened 🤷🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️ !!!!"

Spears' posts come as the Ventura County Sheriff's Office said on Thursday that she is a suspect in a battery investigation, according to

An employee for Spears claimed she struck her during a dispute at the star's home on Monday morning. The woman, a housekeeper, is alleged to have been confronted by Spears, who it is claimed slapped her cellphone out of her hand.

KCBS-TV in Los Angeles reported that the employee was not hurt in the alleged incident.

In a statement to Newsweek, Spears' lawyer, Mathew Rosengart, dismissed the allegations as he insisted that nobody was struck or injured.

"This is overblown sensational tabloid fodder—nothing more than a manufactured 'he said, she said' regarding a cellphone, with no striking and obviously no injury whatsoever. Anyone can make an accusation, but this should have been closed immediately," Rosengart said.

Spears hired Rosengart as her lawyer in July, amid her ongoing conservatorship battle as she fights to regain control of her life and finances.

The star recently notched a major victory in the legal battle last week, when her father, Jamie Spears, agreed to step down as her conservator.

Jodi Montgomery remains the conservator of the singer's personal decisions, with the next Los Angeles Superior Court hearing on the matter scheduled for September 29.
