CelebTV.com has the exclusive interview with Britney Spears’ car accident victim, Kim Robard-Rifkin.
The troubled singer hit a parked car on Aug. 6 with her black Mercedes convertible while shopping at an L.A. strip-mall pharmacy in the Valley.
The singer’s two children were not with her at the time, but Spears–who was not wearing a seatbelt–was clutching her new Yorkie puppy, London, the entire time while navigating her turn into a parking spot. In the process, she hit Robard-Rifkin’s silver Mercedes station wagon.
As she tells CelebTV.com exclusively, Robard-Rifkin, a Beverly Hills nurse, was at Petco picking up dog food and kitty litter on Monday when Spears–as Robard-Rifkin later learned–bashed into the back, right-hand side of her car.
“I found out it was Britney Spears who hit my car and I was sort of amused, sort of shocked, sort of like, ‘Oh, only this could happen in La La Land,” Robard-Rifkin tells CelebTV.com.
Pictures widely circulated online show Spears crouching by the station wagon to check out the damage, clad in a cobalt blue dress and holding her puppy. The singer can also clearly be seen flinging her car door open immediately after the fender-bender, hitting Robard-Rifkin’s car again.
“Of course she’ll get to me,” Robard-Rifkin remembers thinking, “because obviously there was a lot of paparazzi there and what kind of person wouldn’t realize that wasn’t going to be on TV and she had to be responsible and contact me?”
As it turns out, Spears did not contact the nurse. Instead, Robard-Rifkin found out about the accident when an Australian reporter showed up at her door at 8:00 a.m. the morning after the accident for comments.
Robard-Rifkin’s husband then went online and saw the smoking-gun pictures of Britney hitting his wife’s station wagon. “I saw pictures of exactly what happened,” says Robard-Rifkin. “It was bad enough that she hit my car, but then when she got out and slammed her car door into mine, that was sort of slightly annoying.”
As CelebTV.com is the first to report, Robard-Rifkin filed a police report against Spears Thursday morning in L.A.
This is just the latest legal trouble for Spears, whose ex-husband Kevin Federline reportedly filed for full custody of their two children, Sean Preston, 22 months, and Jayden James, 10 months, on Wednesday.
