AceShowbiz - Britney Spears may need to discipline her dogs. The pop star has reportedly gotten a warning after one of her beloved pooches got out of her property and it put her neighbors in a dangerous situation.
Sources allegedly with direct knowledge tell TMZ that Britney's Doberman named Porsha accidentally let loose from her Thousand Oaks home on Thursday, February 23 and was roaming the neighborhood. At one point, Porsha reportedly came in contact with a man in his 70s who was riding his bike.
According to the sources, the man got off his bike and Porsha bit him in the leg before a member from Britney's security team came along to wrangle the dog. The man then visited a local urgent care to get his bite checked out, but no serious injury was reported.
A source close to the 41-year-old singer says her team has been contacted by animal control, who advised them to make sure the dog stays on the property and doesn't get out again. Seemingly playing down the incident, the source says that it was actually more of a "nip" than a bite.
Britney got Porsha as a gift from her now-husband Sam Asghari in October 2021. Introducing the pooch, the personal trainer wrote on Instagram, "Surprised my fiance with our newest member to the Family [a heart emoji] Porsha," adding the hashtags "doberman" and "homesecurity."
Sam also said of the dog in a video, "It's going to be trained to protect you from any motherfucker that comes around you with bad intentions."
The dog bite incident came following reports that Britney's family and manager planned an intervention because they were alarmed by her recent behavior. They wanted her to get help for both her mental health struggles and substance abuse. However, the intervention was called off by someone in her camp.
Following the intervention rumors, Britney's husband Sam told Access Hollywood, "An intervention did not occur," though he didn't confirm or deny that there was such plan. He stressed, "My wife is in full control of her life and will continue to make all decisions involving her care regardless of circumstances. Speculation on her health is inappropriate and should end immediately."
However, Britney only got her fans more concerned after she posted a bizarre video on Tuesday. In the clip, she spoke in fake Australian or British accent and told her followers, "So guys, I just want you to know if I shut down my Instagram, do not call the cops." Her fans previously called the cops to her house for a well-being check after she deleted her account on the photo-sharing platform.
